For many years now, I have been dedicated to creating conscious, honest and connected communication. My early years were spent with people that were snappy or brisk and it left several imprints upon me as well as an overly sensitivity. Now that I have done a lot of inner work, I grown in different ways than my early family and mentors. That does not mean that I am perfect at it nor does it mean that I am always charming, overly enthusiastic or bubbly in my relationships. It is a practice and I know that I am enough. What it means is that I am mostly conscious, I am doing my best and I am being authentic in my communications with others. I speak, listen and take actions from my heart and I am dedicated to making course corrections as I go and I am being genuine in my connections.
We know when we have not had a successful connect and communications with others. There is a distance and a lack of harmony. The communication is not at all heart centered and we do not feel a connection. It feels like a wall is in the way. When I feel the frustration of not being more effective, this feeling inspires me to call upon Spirit and I release it as best I can. I address the situation with my most authentic attention, and I have practices that ground me in my heart and it does affect my communications and relationships in divine timing.
When I am tired or not feeling as good as I can, I notice that the energy of a genuine connection is missing and it leaves me feeling disconnected. When I make a heart centered connection with myself and others, I have a greater feeling of being whole, genuine and it boosts my self respect.
This week, perhaps you are willing to practice heart centered communication with the people in your life. It is well worth the outcome and saves a whole lot of energy that is wasted in second guessing ourselves.
Know that You are Loved. Blessings, Rev. Barb
