“Be still, and know that I am God”
Sit back and relax. Inhale and exhale deeply. Let the tension drain away. Feel the stillness of this moment creating inner peace within your soul. Be calm and attentive in God’s presence, right here and now. Allow this serenity to penetrate into every cell of your body. Feel it growing outward in front of you, both sides of you, behind you and above you. As you feel the stillness of God within, see the white light of love reaching out towards everyone and up to the heavens above.
Stillness is a powerful practice connecting deeper to your true self while hearing the whispers of God’s voice. It heals and transforms your life no matter what circumstances you’re facing.
Stillness in Real Life
Upon waking in the morning, take a moment and enjoy the quiet stillness. Listen attentively to the birds singing their songs. Watch the sun rise allowing its warmth to brighten your soul. Before you start moving, feel God’s peaceful presence. Carry it with you throughout your day while remembering to be still and know that He is God.
When life is busy running errands, fulfilling obligations, answering emails and texts, meeting deadlines, getting kids to and from school, completing chores — slow down and breathe. Find your center creating peace in the midst of chaos and confusion. Inhale deeply into the bottom of your belly to ground and ease your mind. Pause and remember to be still and know that He is God.
You’re walking down life’s road at a steady pace, but suddenly, the inevitable happens — tragedy. A loved one dies, you suffer from illness, or experience job loss. Thrown hard off your path, you lose focus feeling out of control. You’re filled with pain, rage and despair unclear of what the future holds. But in these toughest times, is when you’ll need stillness the most. A calm mind opens the space allowing the healing process to begin. God is by your side hugging your soul with grace, mercy and love. Everything works out in divine timing. Breathe deeply. Remember to be still and know that He is God.
It’s bedtime. You’re trying to fall asleep — but you can’t. Your mind is racing filled with worries about work, unpaid bills, kid’s school issues, what to wear tomorrow, car problems and more. The relentless thoughts keep going and going. But please, just stop. Let it all go. Breathe and be silent. Feel your body sinking into bed relaxing every muscle. Instead of worrying, pray. Give your problems to God allowing your mind to rest. Simply remember to be still and know that He is God.
You can choose stillness anytime even when things are difficult. Being still in heated moments is like drinking a cup of cool, fresh water. It calms your mind and soothes your spirit. You’ll handle the hard times easier while learning life lessons. But if your mind becomes agitated, it adds to the chaos doubling the negative effects.
Having a quiet, calm mind creates a peaceful effect towards others. If you remember to be still and know that God is always present, people will feel this starting a ripple effect of stillness. The calmer you are, the calmer others will be. The world needs more peacemakers creating love and joy instead of stressed and angry people creating negativity and confusion.
Within this stillness, you’ll listen with your soul allowing God’s words to enter your mind. But you can only hear if your mind is still. The constant, mental chatter voids out God’s voice speaking softly to you. Listen to His guidance and your inner wisdom leading you towards a better life creating wholeness.
Stillness is a gift from God. It awakens you to see the peace and wonder existing in every moment. Quiet your mind and listen with your heart feeling the energy around you. Savor the serenity of this calm essence allowing it to heal and transform your life.
Now all you have to do is one simple thing.
Be still and know that He is God.
