The Essence of Quiet Observation

Quiet observation is a state of mind that transcends the chaos of everyday life. It is the art of being fully present and receptive, allowing the external world to unfold before our eyes without judgment or interference. In this state, we become attuned to the subtle energies and wisdom that surround us. It is a profound act of surrender, opening the door to deeper insights, connections, and healing.

After many weeks of chaotic surroundings and wild circumstances, I found that, through it all, when I would find moments alone, I would be completely at peace. My mind was in a state of wonder and curiosity as to how I was not absolutely overwhelmed by the life I had been living during this time. The reason why I felt so calm quickly found me. My observations of the many stories and perspectives of those around me remained in tact in their truth: they were JUST stories and perspectives. I had found that watching life like a movie rather than filling the role as an actress in it, I didn't get lost in the karmic unfolding of my surrounding reality and instead flowed alongside it with loving awareness, a beautiful concept taught to us by Ram Dass.

This blissful state of being, a place of pure observation, is mentioned by many renowned spiritual speakers, gurus, and leaders. This state of being also is referred to in many different ways: the observer, the witness, etc. Through its many different names and explanations, the aspect of being completely detached and fully aware is present always. It's a simple concept, and yet it's one that can take years for one to fully master! Today, we are sharing some of the many ways you can begin to embody the ultimate witness of your life and access the ever-present state of peace waiting to be revealed from within your own mind.

Entering the Blissful State

  1. Cultivate Stillness: Find a peaceful space where you can retreat from distractions. Create an ambiance that promotes tranquility, such as lighting candles, playing soft music, or incorporating natural elements like plants or crystals. Engage in practices like meditation, breath work, or gentle yoga to calm the mind and invite stillness into your being.

  2. Practice Mindful Awareness: Begin by simply observing your surroundings without attaching any labels or judgments. Notice the colors, shapes, and textures. Pay attention to the sounds, scents, and sensations that arise. Gradually expand your awareness to include your inner landscape, observing thoughts, emotions, and bodily sensations with non-attachment.

  3. Embrace Nature's Symphony: Nature is a gateway to quiet observation. Spend time in natural environments, whether it's a serene forest, a tranquil beach, or a peaceful garden. Engage your senses fully, feeling the earth beneath your feet, the gentle breeze on your skin, and the symphony of bird songs. Allow nature's harmonious presence to guide you into a state of tranquil observation.

  4. Engage in Contemplative Practices: Activities like journaling, painting, or engaging in creative endeavors can deepen your connection to quiet observation. Allow your intuition to guide your creative expressions, and observe the unfolding process with gentle curiosity. These contemplative practices provide an outlet for self-reflection and foster a profound sense of presence.

  5. Release Attachment to Outcome: In the realm of quiet observation, let go of expectations and outcomes. Embrace the art of surrender and trust that the universe has its own rhythm and wisdom. By releasing the need to control or manipulate, you open yourself to receive divine guidance and synchronicities that lead to profound transformation.

Benefits of Quiet Observation:

This state of bliss I was able to maintain during the chaos I mentioned earlier has more benefits than simply feeling peaceful (which is the ultimate benefit already!) Here are some of the additional powerful shifts you may notice in yourself as you begin to practice quiet observation in your life.

  1. Heightened Awareness: Quiet observation expands our awareness beyond the superficial, enabling us to perceive the interconnectedness of all things. It opens our hearts and minds to the subtle nuances of existence, allowing for a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

  2. Inner Healing: In the stillness of observation, we create space for inner healing. By gently witnessing our thoughts, emotions, and past experiences without judgment, we initiate a transformative process of self-compassion and release. This deep healing brings us closer to a state of wholeness and balance.

  3. Spiritual Insights: Quiet observation invites profound spiritual insights and revelations. As we detach from the external noise, we tap into our intuitive wisdom and connect with the universal consciousness. In this heightened state, we receive guidance, revelations, and clarity on our spiritual path.

Peace is... peaceful. If there is a way, a practice, a hobby, a path that you can take and engage with on a mind/body/soul level that brings you into a state of pure comfort and flow, do it. Do it because you LOVE yourself! You deserve to feel good, and the better you feel, the better you can assist others in feeling good and ultimately making the positive impact on the world that you want to be making. You are divine, powerful, and capable of anything you set your mind to, so don't hold back! Dive head first into your journey of quiet observation and enjoy the ride. It's quite relaxing.
