My Path of Kundalini
Working with the Kundalini energy affects every part of my life, as this energy moves up through my chakras I experience on a deeper level the lessons I am working on. The lessons and experiences come fast and direct.
Two weeks ago I did the Kundalini Yoga module 'Conscious Communication' since then communication has not been the easiest.
How much do I listen? How much of what I communicate is actually heard?
This past two weeks, I've been faced with many different situations that have showed me how others do not listen to me, which as my mirror makes me question how much do I listen!!?
My phone decided to have no signal at home, It was interesting because at first I felt cut off and disconnected. I deeply wanted to talk to my friends and family but the Universe had other ideas, it felt like the Universe was making me really think about how and when I communicate with people, not just diving in there and babbling away. I was having to make much more effort, my conversations were more aware as I knew I wouldn't be available as soon as I went home, so I needed to really think about what I had to say and make sure the other person understood and that I also listened to others as I wouldn't be able to do my usual double check on the info afterwards.
I explained to my friends and clients, I cannot receive messages so if they need me to ring my landline. Do they ring my landline? No.....They keep leaving me messages that I don't get!!! They then wonder why I haven't got back to them.....
I was also experiencing others not respecting or really listening to what I need, but almost ignoring my words and doing the opposite of what I had asked. I became very aware that through trying to communicate consciously, really tuning in and thinking about my words, trying to portray my truth so that there could be no misunderstanding, that I was still missing a vital link in the conversation.
I'm clearly not getting my communication across, or are they not listening, not hearing me. Or are they not in a place to hear me. So they've shut off, they don't want to hear what I'm saying. So it's easier for them to not listen......
So.....am I not communicating consciously or is it that the other person just isn't in a place to hear me? Ummmm...... I feel I am not always communicating at the same level as the other person, so what I say they can't energetically process because it's coming from a different energy centre than their own. Maybe I need to tune into the heart of the person but also the chakra they are working from. I need to be more aware of the energetic transference of communication and work more from that level.
To reach and truly consciously communicate with another person I need to be connected to my higher-self, for my aura to be one with the Universal aura. It requires projection of truth, authenticity and intention for my words to have impact on myself and others.
This requires face to face communication whereby our auras and energy bodies can also subtly communicate. Maybe others are not truly hearing me because I am communicating only on one level, one frequency, I need to project energetically not just verbally.
''Your communication should not be for you. Your communication should be a service vehicle to reach the other person. Talking is for the other person. Listening is for you. -July 1, 1987'' Yogi Bhajan
Deep Listening - Sunni-ai
Hearing the sounds, the words, the sublety - all that is below the surface- at the same time. Sunnia-ai is intuition applied to listening.
Today I start 40 day meditation chanting Sunni-ai -Pauree of the Japji 11x :-) Lets see how my communication and listening changes.....
What are your experiences of listening and communicating? Do you feel heard? Do you need to improve?
