Oh boy! This is a biggie! We are being challenged to “The Silence” for a few days. This means to be alone, no talking, no technology, no reading books and we are to just BE. I think you may remember I am a yellow personality style. We are after fun and playful interactions and we are typically very social. Well, suffice it to say I was not necessarily sold on this Silence idea. However, I did not sign up and come this far in the Master Key Experience to refuse this challenge. So….here it goes….
I needed to find a spot to sit in silence and be alone. Luckily, my friend had an open rental suite that she didn’t mind me using for a few days. It had no furniture, though, so I needed to pack like I was going camping in a basement suite. Man! How was I going to bring everything in? Well, lucky for me, I had no place to be so I could take my time being a mule horse and then unpack. I picked going into my silence after work on Thursday and coming out on Saturday late day. I had no idea how I was going to keep myself occupied for that amount of time. And come out still liking myself.
To keep this blog brief, I will say I still like myself. I may actually love myself which I hear is a good thing? I was grateful to have so much time to not be responsible for anything or anyone other than myself. I took plenty of time to “sit”, pamper myself, enjoy a few foods I don’t always get to enjoy with my SO (he doesn’t really like some of them). I did plenty of journaling and got to observe a couple of rabbits while I was outside. I could almost reach out and touch one! I’m still a little unsure if anything really became clearer for me but I really did enjoy my experience. Maybe next time, instead of focusing on conquering my fear of being alone, I will prepare more insightful questions for me to ponder while I sit.
