Noise and Sound

Have you ever taken a moment to notice the difference between noise and sound?  They both involve hearing and listening, but the effects of each are very different.

Noise drowns out sound and creates a state of chaos.  It speeds us up and robs us of our awareness.  Noise has become a part of our daily lives.  Things like cars, sirens, machines, loud voices, and alarms create noise.  Noise surrounds us everyday and we become immune to it’s effects.

Sound is a beautiful experience.  It creates a sense of calm and allows the mind and body to slow down.  Sound raises our self awareness.  The sound of birds, crickets, the ocean, the breeze, and leaves stirring bring us back to nature and create balance.  Sound can be a elody or song that brings you back to a good memory.  Sound is part of our spirituality.

I live in a small city filled with noise.  I escape each year to the beauty of Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula where sound is what fills the air.  This year I discovered that sound is my balance.  Sound is what reminds me to breathe and enjoy the moment.  It’s difficult to return to the noise of the city but each time I bring back a part of my trip ad allow it to keep me grounded.

What do you consider noise and how does it effect you?  Have you taken a moment to enjoy sound and see how it makes you feel?  Please share your thoughts in the comments.

Have a beautiful sound filled day!



Confines of Time

How amazing would it be to live without the confines of time?  Time can be limiting and all consuming.  In the world we live in we are so controlled by time that we forget to enjoy the moment.

Recently while on vacation I had the opportunity to live completely in the moment without the confines of time.  I was able to get completely lost in the sound, feel, smell and taste of the ocean.  It was amazing and made me feel like a child again.

Spending the day playing in the waves, collecting rocks and shells, and exploring the beach was so refreshing.  Thinking back to the day I realize that it was the first day in a long time that I spent laughing with a friend.  My friend Nicole and I had such an amazing time and it made me see just how important the special people who share my life are.  It also reinforced that laughter is such good medicine.  It clears the cobwebs and other junk we hold onto and makes room for all the beauty of special moments.

When was the last day you lost track of time?  How did you feel at the end of the day?  Please share your experience so we can inspire others to live in the moment!

Appreciate the life you live and the people you share it with!

Have a beautiful day!
