There’s a quiet so loud at pierces the ears
it echoes throughout every cell in your body
A stillness that seems an illusion
furiously challenged by the whirlwind within
It’s this silence that is so desperately needed to realign ourselves
Yet it’s this quiet that’s so ironically sought after and meticulously avoided.
You try to settle and close your eyes
Your hearts sped up and limbs are warming
A knot tightens in the pit of your stomach
And the relentless mind begins to dictate a story
Telling your body this clearly isn’t the time
You’re not even relaxed and remember that urgent to do list
What a fool to think this quiet time was for you.
So you exit out of this space
Your heart beat lessons further confirming your minds bs story for better served time
So you go about your day again on mostly subconscious autopilot
Only to be catapulted back into the silence in the middle of your precious sleep.
For the soul has the reigns now
Stripped for too long of its opportunities to realign with body and mind
Make no mistake that our spirit will carve out that time for us.
Because this is when our intuition can really come to light.
Let’s honor this time
Before you marry the unfaithful Ahole
Before you take the dangerously stressful job
Before you’re lying in a hospital bed missing a part of you
Before you ever turn away from the true you.
So here I am
In this often uncomfortable stillness
And here I’ll continue to be
And to stretch out, dance, paint, garden, sing, walk
Because now I’ve learned to bring the stillness and the quiet of meditation and mindfulness into the things that bring my soul joy and I realign regularly.
My mission is to help others realign and to maintain that alignment even when shit hits the fan.
