Visual Noise

I was recently introduced to a term 'visual noise', which in essence is used to describe everything around us that we see, which in turn creates some sort of feedback, whether pleasant, unpleasant or neutral.

 

Taking time to consider this further, it would make sense that our outer world is, to the best of our abilities, visually appealing, irrespective of where we may find ourselves.  We may not be blessed with a garden, but we can bring colour into the home through the use of fabrics or houseplants.

Self Compassion

Last weekend, I ran one of my popular workshops ‘Being Stillness’.  These were borne out of the direction that my own personal yoga practice had been taking me and in 2011 I decided to dip a toe in the water and see what others thought of the approach.

A Mind Full of Thoughts

Thoughts that churn around and around getting tossed about like pebbles in the sea.

The sea ebbs and flows like your years or your experiences. Bringing new moments to the fore and allowing others to pass. Discarding thoughts that no longer serve you and bringing you new experiences that allow you to grow.  Your Spiritualism has grown and we now just ask that you allow us back into your life, for your life is not balanced without us. The Spirit world loves you and guides and nurtures you, but you need to hear and feel us again. Embrace and celebrate Spirit.

Sit Still and Listen

Sit still and listen. Hush – Silence – Stillness.

It is more difficult than people think.  Why is this so difficult? Spirit world do not understand.

But the distractions of your modern world infiltrate your entire being.  You constantly get bombarded by noise, heard and unheard.  24 hours of each and every day.  Exhaustion overloads your body.  Your world is under attack by forces that you allow to dominate.

Eliminate all or some of these aspects and you will feel refreshed less anxious and fearful.

The Power of Silence

Some years ago, Channel 4 ran  a series of programmes regarding silence.  It encouraged people from a variety of backgrounds to practice bringing an element of silence into their day.  They were taken to a monastery and were given much support in order to be able to engage in the practice once home.

 

It was an interesting opportunity to be a ‘fly on the wall’ to watch how others at times, struggled, with something that is on the surface, comparatively easy.
