Sometimes what is said isn’t really said. Hmm? Say What? Sometimes no matter how hard I try, I can never say the right words. Why is that?
Perhaps I can spin the words to form a thought. Perhaps I can even convince someone I’m really saying something. Say what? What did you just say? Whereupon, I have to somehow, try to re-word what I just said because hello… is anyone listening?
What if you’re really trying to say something and you articulate it really well; there is no room for misunderstanding, or misinterpreting – and low and behold, you have to repeat the same thing over again in hopes that this time, the listening party will really ‘hear’ it – so what is the point?
Talking, body language, writing, texting, IM’ing, and the list goes on. The question is: Are you listening? Then there’s the other side to listening. What if the listener really understands, only to question what you just said? What if the person is really trying desperately to understand, but only makes matters worse by trying so hard to understand, they get the whole thing wrong? What’s the point of talking?
Why not communicate on a much more spiritually engaging conversation? Is that possible? What might that look like? Is it preferable to no actual spoken words in the English (or any other) language? How is this accomplished you might ask? It isn’t. It’s simple. When you look someone particularly a loved one in the eye, doesn’t your energy and your intention say it all? In Animal Communication, there can be actual spoken words, but not in the way you would speak to a fellow human being. Can we learn to speak to each other in a much clearer, unveiled, and vulnerable (safely), and effective way by how we speak to our animals? We learn so much more from our animals: Unconditional love, compassion, patience, gratitude, loyalty, loyalty, and loyalty… why not true, uncensored, and raw communication? You still might be wondering how that is possible.
I’m not suggesting that you purr, or bark into your loved ones ears, or scratch a particular favorite velvety couch, or even running to fetch a shoe, a plate of dinner, or silverware! I’m simply suggesting, what if there was another way? They say that our eyes are the mirrors into our soul. I personally think they may be the doorway into our soul. What if instead of shouting a no, or yelling a yes, you simply nod quietly and soulfully a yes, or a no? What about uttering soft and gentle words? What about holding someone close, instead of coming up with words of comfort? Communication can be accomplished in so many ways, so when words are no longer helpful, reach out… reach out in actual ways where words don’t exist, nor do they matter. The heart folds, and unfolds, the heart opens and closes, and our ears? Well, they offer a way in and out the other. Which do you prefer?
