Pagan Blog Project: In the Quiet You can…


IMG_2330

As the mother of two small children quiet time is sacred. It isn’t something that happens too frequently and when you does occur it is often interrupted.
I have always found quiet time to be much more than just that.
It’s also a time for:
  • inner reflection
  • to recharge yourself
  • brainstorming creative ideas
  • communion with the divine or spirits
  • divination, scrying or other foretelling practices.
  • sleep
  • meditation
  • coming up with dinner
I think I took quiet time for granted for years. Now I savor everyone moment of it and lament when that time is lost. When I return to working shortly (cross fingers for my job interview this afternoon) I’ll be waking up much earlier then the rest of the house. I’ve done this previously and I love it. It’s complete quiet time for me to savor before the world awakens. Especially when that time is pre-dawn. I never used to be a morning hour but somewhere along the way I’ve come to love the pre-dawn when the world seems at it’s quietest.
Is there a particular way you regularly enjoy Quiet time and if so what do you do?

  1. I usually stay up late at night , just to get some peace ! Last week though I woke up between five and six a.m and all was golden outside - very beautiful! I'll be thinking of you enjoying all those lovely Autumn mornings!

  2. Even though I only have one small child I feel the same way. I am lucky in that she still naps and so I get some quite time then but it is really a precious rare commodity. That said my current favorite quote is from "the happiness project" and it is "The days are long but the years are short" I try to remember that when I try to remember when was the last time I got time for a shower that is longer then 90 seconds. :)
