Silence is a rare and precious commodity. As human beings we like to move and movement causes noise – action is what gives our life meaning and purpose. But silence really is golden, just 2 minutes of regular silent meditation practice allows your brain to slow down to the 2 slowest brain waves, Theta and Delta, in which state we can access subconscious creativity and deep relaxation as well as deep unconscious intuition and insight.
Sit or lie comfortably and start to breath deeply, focusing on the space between the inhale and exhale, the Koombhaka, this is the place that stills the mind and expansion occurs. Not holding your breath but just observing the silence and allowing your body to inhale and exhale in its own time. Try it, see what it feels like and see where it takes you.
