With all of the holiday season hussle and bussle, I have spent very little time in silence. It would be very easy for me to spew out dozens of reasons why I could not make this happen, but when it boils right down to it, there is only one explanation. I have not made it a priority. I want to share with you some of the things that Dr. Wayne Dyer has to say about silence and meditation.
Dr. Dyer says…
“You cannot come to know God through the experiences and testimony of others. This must be done by you. I urge you to meditate because it will bring you more peace, remove stress, improve your surroundings, and deflect negativity. All of this and more will definitely show up when you meditate regularly.”
“Meditation not only affects you, it impacts everyone around you. When you’re at peace, you radiate a different kind of energy than when you’re stressed or depressed. The more peaceful you become, the easier you can deflect negative energies of those you encounter. This is like having an invisible shield around you that nothing can penetrate unless it’s a higher spiritual energy than your shield. A hostile current is greeted with a smile and an inner knowing that this is not your stuff. A person who attempts to bring you into misery cannot succeed without your agreement. Your meditation practice keeps you immune.”
Thank you, Dr. Dyer. I needed to hear these words today.
