Why is it important to have time for silence? How can silence benefit your busy life? In silence, you can listen to the soul part of you. In silence you can speak to God. To be in silence does not mean that you have to sit in silence, stiff and upright, all it means that you need to be aware of the quiet and not be afraid of it.
When you are quiet, you are forced to look at the issues around you. When you are on your spiritual path, silence is a time for the Higher Self to show you what you need to look at. When you are silent, you can see the attributes you most need to work on in their full glory. In silence, you can also allow self-healing to take place. That occurs by the awareness of experiencing deep emotions, such as anger, pain, hurt, frustration, sadness and fear. By crying or releasing this energy, you free your body, mind and spirit from trapped negative energy.
