    I solitude, I often get new perspective for all things normal in my life. But the best gift would be that I usually am just extremely happy when in solitude after a busy day/week.

    I live alone, except for my guinea pig, and I receive lots of spiritual gifts.

    My immediate thought is “healing” – after my biggest life challenge, I didn’t want to be with people, I went for endless solitary walks, being healed by nature, enjoying solitude, safety, having time to think, rebalance, understand, become calm, find some inner peace, learn to love myself a bit more….
    In better times, solitude still gives me time to think, evaluate, decide, come to terms with things…Also just to enjoy my solitude – often outside so I can delight in the beauty of nature and consider my tiny place in the scheme of things. And, in the evening, in my lovely, hot bubbly bath, I find sheer comfort, warmth and (in the most innocent way!) great physical pleasure.

    Inner peace and independence. To allow myself to feel new things, to understand that nothing and no one last forever but the love.

    New or good ideas or solutions seem to often arise in solitude. Also sometimes a through-way to something that has been puzzling me, remembering a name I have forgotten (such as a name of a bird, butterfly or plant, a phrase or song, etc.). If I am walking outside in solitude, especially among trees or near water, it is a gift to realize my breathing and anxiety have slowed down.

    Solitude itself is a gift. I’ve received many gifts from and through solitude – the most significant is the quiet realization I needed to change my vocation.

    I oftentimes can catch my breathe and slow down when I’m in solitude. Relax. Meditate. During such times, I think about my grandmother. Last May would have marked 20 years since her passing. I have a tattoo of an angel in her honor. I wonder what she thinks, looking down from heaven to see the man I’ve grown up to be. Feeling that warmth and connection and love for me – those are all gifts I’m present to.

    I don’t know about any of you, but I can’t help read this as if the word gifts has air quotes LOL…”So, what might be some of these so-called ‘gifts’ you have received in solitude?”

    Solitude, true, actual solitude, is indisputably holy ground in my experience. You come face to face with the truths and forced to stare at them. The most precious fruit borne of my times of solitude has been a decent capacity for accurate self appraisal. This one skill has brought so much value. For once you can be true to yourself, and more importantly Willing to be so, you discover the essence of liberation.

    It is the place I am introduced to the shadow, and bear it. Once this has been mastered even a little…then…the true work can begin.

    Peace. Delight and amazement in being alive, being in a body and having senses – and cherishing what I notice and feel through those senses….

    I have received the gift of personal strength, determination, resolve and flexability in solitude. When I’ve had no one to help me, I’ve relied on my own strength and my relationship with God.
