LISTEN MORE THAN YOU SPEAK

"You never really learn much from hearing yourself speak." ― George Clooney

 

The art of listening – wow. If we are constantly talking, we are not listening. Sometimes, the angels let me get stuff out of my system, do my rant, get on my soapbox, and then ask, “Are you done now?” If there is something that I am truly struggling with, I might give them attitude because they do not agree with me, or even worse, they are getting ready to help me see my own self-sabotage. I can be my own worst enemy with my stubbornness and this they know all too well. Their patience is amazing. It creates a safe landing space for me to decompress and figure out exactly what I am so upset about. A Course In Miracles teaches that we are not upset for the reason we think. The angels help us sort that out if we give them the chance and stop talking long enough to listen.

 

Dear Angels, sometimes I still get upset over things I have no control over. It doesn’t happen very often anymore, but I find myself talking about certain things that are taking place in the world as if I can change them by getting upset. All I am doing is getting upset. Unless we are asking what we can do in situations that are upsetting to us, then going in circles and judging is not helping anything. It is simply adding to the collective energy of anger and fear.

 

Dear Ones, when you are still looking at “others” and having a “them versus me” attitude, you are still stuck in the illusion. Step back and become the observer. Are you safe? Is anyone harming you? If so, let your anger motivate you to seek help. If your anger is directed toward others who are hurting another person or multiple people, ask if you are supposed to get involved in a helpful way. Then, step away from the situation to hear the answer. You will not be able to hear clearly if you are so immersed in the situation. Ask what you are supposed to do with your information. If there is nothing you can do, then why do you still hold on to it as if it were your own? It is as if you forget the important teachings. If a bee is crawling on your hand but not stinging you, are you upset that it is there? Is your fear of the pain that it can potentially inflict on you overriding the fact that it is not harming you? Think about this. Are others “crawling on your skin” because you invited them there when you became upset over an issue? Are they stinging you? Choose your battles, Dear Ones. What energy are you inviting into your space, and what is the result of that energy being present in your awareness? Observe, listen, and ask what your role is? It may simply be to integrate your energy into the Oneness to have a better perspective.

 

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

 

Today, I promise to pay closer attention to the things I am getting upset over.
