Positive Listening

anthony clavien positive listeningListening to one another can sometimes be the most challenging part of our relationships, but it is often the most important. It can be very easy enter into a conversation with a preconceived idea of the person who is talking or what they are talking about, which can muffle what they are actually saying. When we open our ears to one another we are opening our minds and our hearts, and simply by whole-heartedly listening we are giving the other person kindness and acceptance. We are allowing or minds to quiet, our competitive thoughts to calm, and we are letting ourselves learn something about and from the person who is talking. It’s a great gift. Listening is the best way to truly open ourselves up to others, and with practice the art of listening can be mastered by all of us. ♥
