Communication Breakdowns and Other Things That Suck.
Communication breakdowns can happen in any human to human interaction. How often has something you've said been taken the wrong way? How often have you misinterpreted someone else's meaning and message?
When it happens, it can create anything from a slight ripple of discord that gets diffused & released to pass quickly to a full out storm as Ego's face off to defend one another.
9 times out of 10 Miscommunications happen when we are not fully present in the moment. It's easy to distract oneself from being a good listener. By thinking of or response or something else entirely while the person is talking, energetically we are not sending them our attention, or awareness.
Depending on the person, and our history with them, often we can become so busy picking up on the "unspoken message" behind whatever is being said, that we don't hear the full message of what is actually being shared. Ego lives in the land of Knee jerk reactions. They are just lightning fast, and often do not incorporate love into the equation.
But why do we get So Offended? Why do we let ourselves become Angry, Vengeful, Resentful, & Desperate to prove ourselves as valuable when we are challenged by outside forces?
Because it's easy to forget that We are only in charge of our feelings/thoughts. We can choose where we place our thoughts, and what feelings we focus upon. Deep inside, everyone has that spark of Source Energy, that spark that tells us we are only good & loveable, all else is make believe. Self esteem begins within.
To make reparations after a miscommunication, we must first realize when we have ventured off the path of feeling good on our own terms. Then find a way to compromise from there. Remember your Spirit speaks to you through your emotions. When you're "feeling lousy" it's usually because your head/ Ego & your spirit aren't seeing eye to eye.
The Ego Trap Lies in the idea that someone else's poor assessment of us might be more accurate that the assessment we have if ourselves. That's the illusion & The Trap. Whenever we allow ourselves to feel guilty or badly for what we perceive as "mistakes" either ours or someone else's we throw Judgement into the mix.
A Mistake, is simply a choice who's consequences where not enjoyed. We are here to Experience! To choose again, and again and again. Where there is Love miscommunication can be resolved & overcome, where there is fear, guilt or anger, any peace one will merely be short lived.
