It’s amazing how many ideas swim through my mind when I go silent. Not just me not talking or writing, that’s going still. I’m referring to turning everything off.
Pretend you’re trying to fall asleep, that’ll wake your mind up in no time.
Make your room as silent as possible.
Listen to everything around you. Cars driving by. Birds singing or if you watch them why can’t you hear them? The wind, is it a heavy rush or a low whisper. Is there a mood to the sounds? Stormy rain and falling showers. Doors shutting, what inside or kept outside.
Listen to the silence
What’s it telling you?
