“…Archangel Michael on Friday… said we’d emerge from the Tsunami of Love “addicted to love.” The next wave is being called “the perfect storm.”
“But a lot of what’ll come up for some people during some of that process – me included – are their core issues, major vasanas, etc…
“Good listening is invisible. The number of people who said I was a brilliant conversationalist was legion, when all I did was listen. What conversation? Listening is not a conversation. It’s the other person speaking.
“The secret, if there is one, was to have a light touch, be non-threatening, be Maximum Danger: Minimum Risk. I am the listener. I think of this as “having a light touch” or “being light.” That is my mission. To be Light.“
I had a reading with Archangel Michael on Friday and he said we’d emerge from the Tsunami of Love “addicted to love.” The next wave is being called “the perfect storm.”
But a lot of what’ll come up for some people during some of that process – me included – are their core issues, major vasanas, etc. I actually phoned my therapist brother in Victoria, B.C. and warned him to expect an increase in clients – some leaving marriages, some feeling life is not worth it, etc.
The most important skill at this time that I can think of to assist anyone who’s hurting is listening. And there’s more to listening than meets the ear. I’d like to discuss some aspects of it, in this and perhaps future articles.
Listening has the power to turn the puzzle into a picture and cause a realization … and more. It has the power to set the speaker free from the unwanted condition.
When I was studying listening back in the 1980s, I used to say that what we aimed for was allowing the speaker to present their most basic upsets, conundrums, etc. (maximum danger) in a manner that posed the least possible risk (minimum risk). Maximum Danger: Minimum Risk. MXD:MNR
What does it mean to listen in a manner that poses minimum risk? It means to serve as a Second Self, a “sacred partner” we’d say these days. It would double, or quadruple, the person’s ability to see into themselves by seeing along with them, feeling along with them. and realizing along with them. It means to listen closely but with a light touch.
