What Is That Whisper You Hear in the Stillness?

Published on August 3, 2020

We’re in the final weeks of my Discover Your Purpose group program. I’m deeply honored to walk alongside 9 amazing women in their journeys to reconnect with who they are and what they want out of the rest of their lives.

We have weekly Zoom meetings where we check in and discuss insights and questions that are coming up along the path to self-discovery. This is a highlight of my week: Gathering women together to support, challenge, and inspire each other!

This past week, we heard from several of our group members who were embracing very different needs. One feels pulled to release the pressure of expectation and freely explore her creative passions. Another, after years of caregiving, acknowledges a yearning for recognition of her value beyond parenting. A third is allowing herself to sit in inaction, in stillness and reflection, after a life of go-go-go and do-do-do.

When we get in touch with our deepest yearnings, we become aware of our heartfelt callings. In that quiet space, we make room for our authentic selves to speak. As Rumi says, “The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear.”

YOUR TURN: Sit in stillness. Listen to the small voice inside that is guiding you to your authentic desires. What does it whisper?
