Pause for Thought — 14 Comments

  1. Oh I always love your blogs.. I am learning to pause… I tend to dive in without pause… but I have a friend who does very deliberate pauses to make sure she is sure of what she is about to say… and I really do appreciate that! THANK YOU! <3 Mimi

  2. Practice, practice, practice. Interesting insights into ways of pausing.

    I tend to keep it very simple by asking my quiet self to show/tell/manifest guide me to what is needed at this moment and maybe the next. So far so good …!

  3. Imogen,

    Your 3 kinds of pause is so well-articulated. I was just introducing a new student to the concept of “pause” this morning. Thank you, thank you.

  4. I love this post, Imogen. So clear. I’m preparing my class for tonight and i’m going to use these different types of pausing this evening and play with them.

    In the meantime here is a quote I really like. Thanks. Vero

    “Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

    • Hi Veronique, Thanks so much for your comment. That’s a fabulous quote, and perfect in this context. Have a wonderful class tonight.

  5. I love this post! I used to include pausing into my life by having post-it s all aver the place and having my mobile phone remembering me multiple times a day to pause. I discovered, that over time this training led to a new level of, as you call it, active pause, which is in my opinion actually a new level of awareness, rather than a skill.

    • Thanks, Daniel. Post-it note and phone reminders are a great tip to help us remember to pause. It is the remembering that is hard, especially in the beginning. Thanks for sharing.
