Now please consider what you are learning by what is being communicated to you.
Please...and thank you.
Life isn't all autonomic and automatic though. We are given independent thought and have a responsibility to it. Our healthy function and resiliency is our job to model, foster in our children invest in and give attention to. Of course, we're not perfect, but I assure you, we're pretty amazing.
What we say, think and do matters. There is brilliance in all of us. There are results of our actions...and results of not taking action. When we choose not to say what "needs to be said", there is a cost isn't there? A breakdown of necessary processes that if allowed would lead to increased relational and emotional health. Same though that we often communicate what does "not need to be said". Rather, we can acknowledge that we need to take responsibility for our feelings, give attention to them, ask the question "what are you teaching me?". We can practice choosing NOT to project onto innocent others that then have to repeat the process of figuring out what to do with the messy mess we just handed them.
Like with our bodies, the best relationships have the best communication skills. I encourage you to engage with what you desire to express. Consider who you want to communicate with and WHAT messages do you hope others will receive? Explore your behaviors and be curious (rather than judgmental) about your effectiveness. Practice without expectation of perfect, but of holding your intention. What you desire and how you think creates change.
Reflection of our relationship with ourselves is a great place to begin practicing. Explore what you desire to "hear" and heal. Do you have some Truths that you need to receive more deeply? Loving ourselves well results in being able to love others more fully. In my world, this is an expression of Kingdom Come. Notice what you desire; desires not born from lack, but from what calls you to it.
You have an internal compass. There are resources that can assist you learning how to access and use it. I've witnessed empowered expressions of healthy communication both in bodies and relationships. We are all receiving and expressing intelligence; now onward to learn, to increase our function and resiliency with what we "hear".
Please be empowered to communicate your love, needs, desires, humor, observations, growth and challenges. You're never alone. Someone is listening.
