Do You Think I Understand You?

"The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it." -- Thich Nhat Hanh

Mindfulness is something we talk about a lot but some do not take the time to fully comprehend it. It is the practice of being fully present and engaged in the current moment, without distraction or judgment. It means to appreciate what is happening now rather than always thinking about the past or the future. When we are mindful, we can fully acknowledge and experience our emotions, thoughts, and sensations as they occur. Thich Nhat Hahn taught that we cannot have love without understanding. He encourages us to ask the important question to ourselves and to each other: Do you think I understand you? and then fully listen to the answer.

Dear Angels, many times we give up on relationships with others because it is easier to walk away than to work on trying to understand another being. We are all searching for that deep connection in our heart space with our creator, spirit team and with each other. It is that connection that helps us understand the Oneness. Using the question of “do you think I understand you” is one of the fastest ways to connect. It will open up doors of communication that are essential to allow love in.

Dear Ones, being mindful is being aware. It is the simplicity of paying attention that makes it so powerful. Don’t overthink it or try to put more rules onto it. It is not complicated, although many of you try to make it so. If you stay with the simple question of understanding and utilize compassion when listening for the answer, you will begin to see the pureness in each other and thus move closer to the Oneness of all that is. We encourage you to start with yourself and do your inner reflection without expectation of answers. If you ask the question and hear no response, perhaps there is a fear of judgment involved. Take some deep breaths and ground so that any fear is released from inside of you. Then go back in softly and gently and really listen for the answer. Once you are open to hearing, the answers will come.

Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.

Today, I promise to ask the important questions and listen for answers.
