Life Coaching – Communicating from Within

Life Coach Quiet ListeningThere are three places that we can come  from when we are communicating with others, or making decisions.

1. Head, from this place we may be trying to rationalize situations, use intellect, process, analyze, and react. This is great for use in business.

2. Heart, When we are in our hearts, we are connecting, expressing love, compassion, sensitivity,  and sympathy. Sometimes it can be difficult to make decisions from the heart because we may be too sensitive or emotional and it could get in the way. This is great for use with loved ones.

3. Knowing, this is the place just below or behind our navel, our center, our gut feeling, also called our place of “chi”, and life source. This is where we go when we are seeking answers from within. Here we can only experience the truth of all things, a knowing of who we really are, why we are here, and how we can best serve all of humanity. From here we are able to respond to situations rather that react. It’s almost a sense of being in the present.

Our knowing is also the place where we receive goose bumps during a chilling situation or conversation. These are actually “Truth Bumps.” We can know, that when this happens, Spirit is present.

Exercise: Pause for a moment, count to five, take a couple of deep breaths and get centered. Then ask yourself which one of these three place are your current thoughts and decisions comming from. By doing this exercise several times throughout your day, you may find that your thoughts and decisioins will be more in alignment with your wants and desires.
