The Power Of Silence

Hello Readers,

‘Silence is golden, speech is silver’. How many times have you opened your mouth, said something and immediately wished that the ground would open up and swallow you up? I bet your answer is ‘lots of times’. And how often have you found yourself in the company of people who constantly talked and chatted to the point of driving you insane with some of the stuff they were coming out with and the noise that accompanied it all just when all you needed was a bit of peace and quiet? This experience can be utterly exhausting and energy draining, so if you find yourself stuck in this situation, do the only sensible thing, make your excuses and remove yourself sooner rather than later, before it all gets that bit too much.

Silence is only frightening to people to people who are compulsively verbalising and to those who find it nearly impossible to sit still. They like to surround themselves by noise, distraction, socialising with anyone they can latch on to, link up with unsuitable friends and lovers, mainly because they cannot stand the sound of their own thoughts or be in their own space. They hate being alone, dislike their own company for more than two minutes, prefer and follow the opinions of others rather than listen to their inner voice and so these people wander around aimlessly for what seems like an eternity, a bit like wandering around in the wilderness.

There are lots of different kinds of silences. For example, the wonderful silence just before the dawn. The quiet and calm just after a storm ends, or perhaps you are familiar with the sort of silence you get when you haven’t had an answer to a question you have asked? Lying is done with words as well as silence. The unexpected pause of a room full of people just before someone is about to speak or the silence at the end of a telephone when the caller refuses to speak? Or the moment you enter your home after a mad, busy, hectic day, close the door and greeted with the sound of a beautiful peace and quiet that you desperately need just to calm and collect yourself.

You are at your most powerful when you are most silent. People never expect silence, they expect words, actions, motions, defence, arguments, protests, offence back and forth. They expect to leap into the fray, fists up, words hanging from their mouths. Silence? No. It confuses them, they don’t really know what to think or how to handle you. All their plans are thwarted forcing them to go back to the drawing board and think of a new angle to launch yet another attack and all you have to do is remain silent, because your silence speaks volumes.

Silence can make you grow stronger, mentally and spiritually. Making time for yourself to be quiet, still and meditate allows you to empty your mind of all the nonsense and rubbish that life and people fills it with. It is when you are alone and at peace with yourself that you can hear your inner voice talking to you, guiding and protecting and directing you. It is at these times when some of your greatest ideas and inspirations manifest themselves. It is so important that you create these quiet times for ‘you’. People who do not understand your silence will probably not understand your words either.

‘Be silent and safe – silence never betrays you,
Be true to your word and your work and your friend,
Put least trust in him who is foremost to praise you,
Nor judge of a road till it draws to an end’

Until Next Week,

Love and Light,
