Listen – From My Heart
I’ve been working on listening over the last month. Listening to my sweetheart, my friends, my clients, my daughters, and the Divine.
Are you a good listener?
I had a story about myself that I was a *very* good listener. One day about 4 or 5 weeks ago, I was talking with a good friend of mine who lives in Europe and he challenged me around my listening skills. He spoke of an experience he had with me where he felt that I walked all over him focusing on my own interpretation rather than listening for his feedback.
It was really hard to hear this feedback. But he’s my soul brother. He loves me and wants only what is best for me. I listened to what he said and reflected. And you know what? He was right. I was caught in my framework much of the time, rather than truly being with the other in their space.
I’ve been working on listening since then, and I’m seeing transformation in every area of my life. When I approach each interaction from the place of “I don’t know” I’m much more open to listening and hearing what is being communicated. Sometimes with words, but more often in other ways – the communication of one soul to another.
There’s more innocence and joy in my life now. And I’m still working on listening of course!
Could you be listening more completely to what is being communicated to you?
That’s it for this week…From My Heart.
