Welcome to The Daily Still Podcast - A Place to Pause. Here we create space to listen for the whispers of God. Each episode features a short devotional-style, guided meditation, offering room to “be still” in the midst of the busyness of life. We position ourselves to hear God’s Voice, allowing Him to bring alignment and peace to our whole being. Host Cindy Helton is a spiritual guide and coach for stillness gatherings and retreats. She has practiced and led guided Christian meditation for over a decade. Her passion is ushering people into the Presence of God.
This meditation focuses on practicing unrushed rhythms.
Slowing down the pace of life, as well as the information we take in, promotes a quiet soul. Studies show, calm, quiet moments are a trigger to our brain — minimizing the body’s physical response to stress, lowering blood pressure, heart rate and stress hormones. This produces better concentration and overall emotional health.
Our souls need space to Breathe!
Ralph Waldo Emerson reminds us:
Life is a journey, not a destination.
This is true of the spiritual life as well.
So what will we discover on that journey?
The answer may just be found in the pace of life that we keep.
Jeremiah 2:25 MSG
Psalm 46:10 MSG

Quiet The Soul
Welcome to Season 5 of The Daily Still Podcast! This season we will be focusing on Quieting The Soul.
Creating intentional space to quiet our souls prepares an environment that is imperative for a healthy inner life, as well as our external lives. In this episode, host Cindy Helton shares about her summer spiritual retreat and the process of inner transformation. Stillness births transformation, a process that cannot be rushed. Change takes place slowly as we surrender to our Maker’s loving Grace.
Join us for our weekly meditations as we seek to go deeper in the spiritual rhythms of stillness and inner transformation.

Calming Fear and Anxiety (Encore Episode)
Today’s meditation is an encore episode from our 40 Days of Stillness Series, that invites you to receive a holy exchange. Breathe in God’s peace and exhale anxiety and fear.
“Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers,” Philippians 4:7
We have an hour long meditation to calm fear and anxiety available on iTunes.
The Presence of God (Encore Episode)
Today we present an encore episode originally from Season 2. You are invited to “be still” and enjoy 5 minutes of uninterrupted stillness.
In this quiet space, ask God for more of His Presence in your life.
"The LORD replied, 'My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.'" - Exodus 33:14 NIV
Spiritual Surrender (Encore Episode)
Today’s meditation is an encore episode originally from Season 2 that focuses on spiritual surrender. Stillness is a way of surrendering our hearts to the One who knows us best. Freeing the mind of thoughts and concerns, while resting in God’s presence, allows us to SEE God more clearly in the daily of life.
There’s an enemy who whispers lies to our souls. His goal is to create busyness, distraction, uncertainty and discouragement. These whisper can become louder if you allow it space in your thoughts.
So we need to discern the voice of Truth, by connecting with and knowing our Creator. By being still and listening.
Great podcast that provides a wonderful way to start the day. My only suggestion would be to please include breathing in the meditations. In the few episodes where Cindy reminds us to breathe in and out I find I have deeper and more meaningful meditations. Thank You.
Exactly what I need. Thank you for the lovely podcast.
