Tip 33: You’ve Asked, But Are You Listening?

14 Jun 2016 4:08 PM | Heather Kaye (Administrator)

You’ve had a pressing dilemma, asked for input from colleagues and peers, and posed the question to the universe. Are you taking the time in quiet reflection to hear the answer? It is helpful when deep listening is needed, to take time and make space for silence. This sounds simple, but many people avoid silence. There is no substitute for creating an environment of receptivity than a restful, undemanding session of quiet. Take as little or as much time as you need.
In silence:

  • Sit. Get grounded and settle in a comfortable position.
  • Relax the body. Start with a moment of gratitude. Are you able to feel a sense of lightheartedness?
  • Allow your perspective to shift to the issue at hand. Be in the question—what is the path to a solution?
  • Notice any blocks or obstacles. Do not resist, just notice.
  • Allow your heart and mind to be open to new ideas and inspiration.
