Is there something you aren't telling me?
So often our differences with other people stems from communication issues. Someone said something they didn't mean, we thought someone said something mean, we don't mean what we say. So many issues arise in that fifth chakra and relationships! We all know this already. What we don't look into as often is the communication with ourselves. Our thoughts, our bodies, our emotions are all forms of self communication. However, normally we do these things without thinking there may be a miscommunication . We just assume we can communicate well with ourselves, but the fact is, sometimes we don't.
We either ignore our own bodies, emotions, thoughts, etc. We try and change them or we misinterpret them. For example, do I really want to go out to dinner with that person or do I just feel obligated to? Another example would be when we try and change our physical body and it back fires. Let's say we try and fix a problem by getting really healthy, which seems to cause more health issues. Well, maybe out body just got the communication that the only way you would listen is if it was causing problems. Sometimes we have to take ourselves off of automatic pilot and work on our communication issues.
Insightful Inspiration for the week
Stop and listen to yourself. Really listen. What are you trying to tell yourself that you are trying to dismiss or deny? Maybe it is that aching thought that keeps coming up about something. You think it is just a silly thought and you keep putting it off, but pull it out and talk to it. Sit with that thought and feel it with complete awareness. There might be a better communication method there if you just stop long enough to give it a try.
Check in with any miscommunications you might be having with yourself. Are you pushing too hard on changing something about yourself that is causing other parts to dig it's heels in on? Are you expecting too much? Are you limiting yourself, by expecting too little. This week, just work on communication with yourself in all aspects and see if it shifts your perspective.
Let me know how it goes.
