Listen carefully to everyone today.
Think about how much of our time and communication is spent thinking about what we are going to say and not necessarily taking the time to really listen to what someone else is saying. Usually, when people begin talking, we are already trying to figure out what our response is going to be when in fact, so much of communication is dependent on listening and very rarely do people even want us to give advice or to fix the problem. They simply want someone to listen and to truly hear their heart, their emotion, and their energy. It is in listening th.at we connect deeper, but it is in speaking that we often create a separation.
Set the intention today and every day to spend more time listening than speaking.
Try to figure out what our response is going to be. What we have to say is not quite as important as listening to what the people around us have to say. Set the intention to listen and open our hearts and minds so that we can create a deeper connection with the people in our lives. Know that the most important part of communication is our ability to listen. Make it a great day and listen carefully.
My intention is to be of service to you. I invite you to a journaling practice with my first book, 365 Mindful Moments, an interactive daily journal practice of one intention every day to inspire a short journal practice every day.
Journaling has been my constant source of sanity and clarity for the past 30 years, and as much as my journal practice has helped me, I know the most difficult part is picking up the pen and “knowing” what to write. Take the guessing game out of your journal practice and use 365 MINDFUL MOMENTS to set intentions every day that will change your entire life.
I look forward to sharing more of my Spoken Word Yoga offerings with you. Please always feel free to reach out to me with requests as I am grateful for the opportunity to be of service to you.
Blessings! Blessings! Blessings! Namaste.
