Free yourself from unwanted thoughts by practicing stillness and silence.
What is True Meaning of Silence?
Silence is not the absence of something but the presence of everything.
We turn our thoughts and focus inwards and gain the power we need to refuel our minds. Our ego is temporarily switched off or at least made to be quiet for a bit, and we start to see the real world as it should be.Our thoughts get in the way of our reality sometimes and we don’t see the beauty of the world around us.
When there is silence there is time for introspection and to allow our true self to speak not the ego or the conscious mind, but the true self connected to the flow of energy around us.

Step 1: Observe inhalations and exhalations
Sit or lie in a comfortable position. With your eyes open or closed, scan your body and realese any unnecessary tension. Bring attention to the sensation of your breath. Without thinking, simply feel the sensation of each inhalation and exhalation. During inhalation, note your belly gently expanding; during exhalation, sense it gently releasing. Feel yourself settling, relaxing, and letting go with each breath.
Step 2: Observe flows of sensation and energy
Sit or lie in a comfortable position. With your eyes open or closed,take few deep deep breath with each inhalation, sensation and energy flow down the front of your body, from head to feet. With each exhalation, sensation and energy flow up the back of your body, from feet to head.
During the practice, go with the natural flow of your inhalations and exhalations, as you inhale feeling of well-being that naturally arise. and as you exhale anything negative goes out.
Simply become the witness of your own breath and let the witness conseousness flow.
Step 3: Count your breaths
You can also practice by counting your breaths—a practice that’s useful in developing focused attention and concentration.
Sit or lie in a comfortable position. With your eyes open or closed,take few deep breath.
As you breathe, count each breath from 1 to 5 or 1 to 9 like so: Inhaling, belly expanding 1; exhaling, belly releasing 1. Inhaling, belly expanding 2; exhaling,belly releasing 2. And so on.
When you recognize that you’ve become distracted, y bring your attention back to your breath, starting your counting again at 1. and continue counting.
