In the Flow with Healing Waters


How can I control all the information coming at me

Not sure if my life is at a point where I’m looking to slow down or if the technology age is finally at a peak. My gut tells me it’s the latter.   

I think back to how I was raised.  We played outside, went to the library and picked out books, made up games, explored, and in general, made our own fun. My parents weren’t on computers or cell phones, there was no social media or even internet. There were  newspapers that were delivered daily and maybe a few magazines sprinkled through.   We only watched television when our favorite show was on.  Today, it’s endless what you can watch on television!

In today’s world it feels as though information comes in quicker and is pushing in way too much. We do have choices over what comes into our lives. Choosing to disconnect by turning off the phone, turning off the TV, silencing gadgets, or even blocking people will stall the information that we get inundated with each day. However, then there’s this underneath feeling of complete disconnection from the world which isn’t a very good feeling either. It’s figuring out what is best for you, what you can do without and bringing awareness to how you are with all of the distractions and information. 

Information also comes in through seeking and being a learner. Anyone who knows me knows that I love to research. I love to learn. I absolutely love audible books because I can listen to them on my way to and from work, while I’m getting ready in the morning and just doing things around the house.  When people ask me what kind of books I like to read, I used to say fiction and now I like books about Acupuncture and energy. A few weeks ago I was pulled to my bookshelf at home for some reason and found this book, “The Silence,” by Robert Sardello. I bought it about five years ago. I must have started it because I had a  bookmark in it, but I don’t remember it at all, but I LOVE it!

It’s a fascinating book because he describes The Silence as coming into one self (I AM) through the use of being silent. I love to play on words for the fact that being silent is really how you cut through all of the noise and come into The Silence.  

As I was in the midst of reading this book on the pontoon a few weeks ago as my son and my husband were fishing,  I closed the book and I said, “This book feeds my soul.”   They know me so well because they looked at me, kind of chuckled and said, “Awesome.”  

I think we’re all so different in that things resonate at different times for us. I clearly wasn’t ready to listen to this book or read this book 5 years ago, but it is making such a huge impact for me now to give me exactly what I was looking for and that is some silence.

With all the information that comes in each day and the busyness of life, pause and determine what you can do to create some silence in your life. Maybe it’s only for a few moments each day, but notice how you feel when you are in silence. At first, because you aren’t used to it, you may feel anxious instead of realizing the benefits of being quiet and peaceful. Make a commitment to do a little quiet time each day. Get comfortable with silence. There are so many benefits of disconnecting. 

Being silent in the flow,
