Allowing silence to be your friend rather than something to fear is an easy way to relieve stress, gain clarity and allow your true nature come forward. It gives your mind and body a break and the heart a chance to be heard.
Whether you are in need of time to relax, have a big decision to make, or are in a fight with a partner or spouse, silence can dissolve tension and strife.
Silence can mean that you simply refrain from speaking, or speaking unless spoken to all the way to putting away all electronics and distractions. Both are healing in their own way. If you can get past the minds need to be heard, you can reach a point where it feels comforting.
