Listen. Because listening’s important:
Hi and welcome to the Re-Enchant Your Life reminder.
Your sacred pause in the day where you’re encouraged to take a moment to stop and tune into your inner wisdom and become present, so that you can reconnect to your personal power and confidently embrace who you’re becoming, as you Re-Enchant Your life and create the change you truly desire.
Today you’re being reminded of the importance of listening.
Listening is an art.
Often people think they’re listening, when actually they’re just waiting to respond.
Today make a conscious effort to listen.
Listen to people.
Really listen to people in conversation with you.
What are they saying, and what aren’t they saying?
Listen for the tone, the unspoken, the nuances.
Listen to yourself.
Listen to your intuition, your feelings, your body, the quiet nudges and knowings.
Listen to the sounds in your environment, what haven’t you noticed before?
What sounds do you love, and which set your teeth on edge?
How does listening add value to your life, deepen your connection with others, and enhance your own experience of life?
Pause, and take a breath. As you stop, pay attentions and consciously listen.
Today’s SHEro Action:
Today’s SHEro action is to listen.
Get better at listening.
Listen without filters. Listen without an agenda.
Listen to yourself, to people, to your environment, to this podcast.
Pay attention to the words, the sounds, the tone.
Listen to what’s not said or missing.
Ask questions to qualify what you’re not sure of.
Be present. Stay curious. Just listen.
How could your experience of life be enhanced if you were better at listening?
How would the world be a better place if people listened, and I mean really listened?
Pause, and take a breath. As you stop and listen.
“I value the importance of listening and being heard”
I’ll see you tomorrow for your daily reminder to Re-Enchant Your Life with me, Rebecca-Anuwen,
In the meantime, enjoy listening on Your SHEro’s Journey!
I remember the first time I really experienced someone listening to me. They really heard me. It was a visceral feeling for me.
They were completely present with me in that moment. They truly listened. They weren’t trying to talk over me, they weren’t waiting just to have their say.
They listened openly and heard me.
They didn’t have to, we were just talking about nothing in particular, it wasn’t even an overly important conversation, we were just chatting. But I felt heard and deeply connected in that moment.
So much so, that I can still remember it all these years, possibly 15 years later.
Don’t underestimate the power of listening, it can have a profound effect on the person being heard..
