I recently took a vow of silence for 7 days which was something I intuitively felt I needed to do. If you look back a couple posts I even wrote an entry how I felt on the third day of the vow. I can’t even explain in words lol how powerful this practice was in centering my attention on my spirit. I realized that its not only the T.V. and mass media distracting us its our minds and our habits distracting us from ourselves. Habits like over talking and empty exchanges. Distracting us from being intimate with ourselves because most of us fear the silence inside. I’ve had friends tell me they literally can’t handle silence for too long or they start to become anxious which is a very paramount statement about humanity.
Through meditation I have come to realize that the spirit speaks in silence. Silence is the portal to the higher dimensions of the mind. If one is uncomfortable with silence it leaves a huge obstacle for them to connect with spirit and transcend physicality. Which is probably why the controllers of the matrix bombard us with so much noise and lights that leaves one feeling naked when its all stripped away. We need periods of silence and rest or else the brain starts to deteriorate and create mental diseases which is scientifically proven.
But back to my personal experience with the vow which I recommend every human being to do whether for a day or a week or however long you think you need. My personal and professional life did not get affected by it in a negative way. What it did do was enhance it somehow as people were telling my presence was stronger. I started to not care what anyone thought of me as I did get ridiculed for being silent which was so liberating. But to hear the whole story watch the video. One love – Shaman Treez
