There is a healing that can happen in silence alone.

Not only the deep, meditative, inner silence.

But, the simple silence – just being quiet.

Not speaking.

Sometimes we have conversations that feel like they are going nowhere. Try silence. It does not have to be weird. You can just say, “I need to collect my thoughts.” Or, “Let’s just take a break from our discussion for a couple of minutes.” Let your mind calm. Just sitting with a person in quiet can lead to a better connection, a deeper understanding, a shift in the discussion, and a shift in consciousness. Really simple measures can create really huge results!
