Hello my friends!
Dr. Sarah here, and welcome to video 165.
So what direction does your communication go in?
Do you tend to focus in on what’s wrong and the problem, rather than acknowledging something that’s light, that may be working in the situation?
For example, running late. Do you tend to apologize for that, like, “I’m so sorry I’m running late?”
Rather than, “Wow, thank you so much for your patience. I really appreciate it.”
Another example is when someone goes into their problematic story and you agree in align with it, like, “Oh my god, I can’t believe how bad that is for you. That’s horrible.”
Rather than, “Wow, that’s really amazing how you’re handling that. Good for you.”
So, just be aware of your language.
What direction does your communication go in?
A Space to BE With
Take a moment to tune in and ask yourself the following questions.
When communicating about heavy things, do you tend to focus on the problem or the possibility in the situation?
How often do you articulate all the negative things in a situation as a way to communicate with others?
Has that been working for you?
What would it be like to come from a “possibilities” point of view? To communicate from a space of acknowledgment of what’s light in the situation?
What if you were to aim to use this approach the next time a heavy situation occurs?
What else is possible now?
Let’s Talk About It!
When you are willing to be in the question and look at your life from a different perspective, it opens you up to a different world of possibilities… a space where choice and change is readily available with more ease. What would it be like?
So I invite you to share your awareness and points of view on my YouTube Channel.
All right my friends. Be with that, play with that, and let me know what that’s like for you and I’ll look forward to talking to you again soon. Take care for now.
