Practicing "Be Still"

During these unprecedented times, everyone is looking for something or someone to help them cope. We all want this to go away and many people are asking “Why me Lord?” and “When will this end Lord?” I have experienced a lot in my life and eventually learned that God wanted me to be still so I can trust Him and trust the process. "Being Still" is one of the hardest skills for people to learn but an extremely important one to cultivate. There are many ways to “be still” and it is not a task that many can do alone without guidance. If this is a skill you are struggling with or want guidance on, please reach out and find out how I can help you.  In these times, we need to remember to "Be Still." Being still is having mindfulness, letting go and letting God, having “crazy faith,” being quiet enough to hear God or the universe, and when we stop stressing and overthinking about our problems. One of the first steps is learning from scripture about being still. For this blog I am focusing on The Bible but many religions have the same concept of being still. Below are a few of my favorite Bible verses on “being still.” 

  • “A time to tear and a time to sew; a time to be silent and a time to speak” - Ecc 3:7

  • “Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will not be shaken. -Pslam 62:5-6

  • “Teach me, and I will be silent; make me understand how I have gone astray.”- Job 6:24

  • “But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.”- Psalm 131:2

  • “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”- Exodus 14:14

  • “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”- Pslam 46:1

Other skills to use with “being still” such as radical acceptance, meditation, managing stress levels, and focusing on the positivity in your life. The main point is to stop trying to figure out all the steps, stop overthinking, and stop stressing over the answers. Being still is where we have “crazy faith” in the Lord, in ourselves, and in the Universe.

Opening up to a stranger was never really an option for me, but life hits you hard, and it left me in a weak state.
Searching for help, I found Ms. Doubleday in my area.
As a first time therapy session, I was nervous, but that all settled within the first 5 minutes of meeting her.
Ms. Doubleday exceeded every expectation I had for counseling. She’s kind, empathetic, but most of all, she cares, and that’s all you need sometimes.
Whether you’re going through the loss of a loved one, or just need someone to vent to, you’ll be glad she was the one you found for help, as I know I am.

My boyfriend and I sought out Veda when we were going through a very stressful and conflict-filled period in our lives and our relationship. We both immediately took a liking to her kind but no-BS approach. She helped us determine what decisive action needed to be taken to alleviate the major issues and learn how to communicate more harmoniously. I’m happy to say we’re doing better than ever and we are incredibly grateful for Veda’s insight and guidance

I reached out to Veda because my teenage son was misbehaving in school, suffering from depression, and my family had fallen apart. Veda was able to connect with him and he actually looked forward to their sessions together! She provided us skills and tools to help our son and to reconnect as a family. My son is doing a lot better now and I am thankful for Veda's support and guidance during this past year.
