PIECE OF PEACE: FREE THE POWER OF YOUR INNER VOICE
Silence and self-esteem go hand-in-hand.
– KEYS SOULCARE
“The world is so noisy; if you can’t hear your own inner voice, it’s so easy to get lost in everyone else’s opinion and thoughts for you. [Meditation] is a powerful tool for me and I’m much stronger and more grounded with it.” — Alicia Keys
Meditation has long been recognized as an quintessential form of soulcare, even when it’s done in small doses. This exercise of the mind is as popular as it is challenging — especially in a world that’s constantly competing for our thoughts and attention.
If you’ve ever tried to silence your mind, you know what we’re talking about. The endless buzzing, scrolling, and talking of our critical world always seems to seep in, even when we magically find quiet in our physical surroundings. This tells us so much about how we navigate the world: we are full of other people’s opinions, needs, and demands, which is why meditation is so effective for personal growth.
When we learn to let the sounds of the outside world pass through us rather than distract and deter us, we regain a sense of clarity that can change our perspective and lives. Meditation acts as a sieve, helping us sift through all the noise to find our one true voice; the light and guide we use to see through the muddled thoughts that can overwhelm us.
With practice and commitment, we can find that voice quicker and hear it more clearly, even when we can’t find silence outside ourselves. Take the time you need to find your voice, and don’t let the noise discourage you: Your power is waiting for you on the other side.
