How Can I Learn To Be Still?

Life is busy. How Can I Learn To Be Still? This is a huge question that I’ve been considering for awhile. It isn’t any automatic answer, because I am attention-challenged. That may have happened during my 38 year career as a school teacher. I had to be on high alert to all the happenings going on at once in the classroom. HAHAHAAHAH!

My Experiences While I Learn To Be Still

I’ve been focusing on this for a couple of years now. Slowing down to quiet my chattering mind was something I didn’t ever think about for six decades. I guess this Old Dog CAN learn new tricks.

I began the quieting through Guided Meditation recordings that I found on Youtube. I came up against the hindrance of spending so much time searching for the right video. The first guided meditations I followed were Joe Dispenza videos. Eventually, I felt his voice was too intense for my style.

I wrote about the way Self Care Meditation And Immunity work together.

Here’s What I Do As I Learn To Be Still

As of right now, my favorite way to meditate involves a couple of steps:

  • Spending 7-20 minutes in quieting my mind. I usually listen to a nature track, such as Forest Sounds. This is my most challenging step, because my mind is ready to jump around.
  • Then I take about 15 minutes to meditate upon songs or recordings of Bible passages. My current passages are Psalm 91 and Ephesians 6.
  • Finally, I select a Bible verse for the day and pray.

This is my morning routine of becoming still. I often find that new inspirational concepts and new action steps take shape after I am done.

When I skip my morning meditation, the day is less productive. Or I find myself scattered and irritable.

God created us to have quiet times. He know that in those quiet moments, we can do our best attention to His special message.
