|LOVE LOVE LOVE! I give myself permission to be silent. I don't have to articulate my experience to have it (thanks InterPlay)! (all art by Hallelujah Truth)|
What can you love about where you are now?
"If you want to be truly understood, you need to say everything three times, in three different ways. Once for each ear...and once for the heart."
-Paula Underwood Spencer (from Mark Nepo's "The Book of Awakening")
|SAY IT ONE TIME FOR THE HEART. How would that heartspeak be expressed? What would it sound or look like?|
Like Mark Nepo writes in The Book of Awakening, I too have "felt so unheard that when asked a question after speaking my heart, I'd take it as rejection or criticism." Now, I know with all of my body wisdom, that gaining understanding or communicating myself successfully may require creative repetition:
"If you want to be truly understood, you need to say everything three times, in three different ways...."
In this past year, I have broadened and deepened my communication skills through the practice of InterPlay, a system with improvisational tools that allow me multiple avenues for saying what I need to say! YaY!
I LOVE playing and connecting with others, expanding my range of being, and being more present to myself and others in my warm creative worldwide community.
Right now, it thrills me to think about how to manifest my ideas in three different ways. What possible forms might they take, especially the one directed towards speaking to the heart?
I LOVE communicating! Let's all try to work together to be understood. And, perhaps, we can make subtle changes in our word choices as we move towards listening and hearing what each other says. I suggest substituting the word "work" for "play."
PLAYFULLY we might ease towards one another and experiment with different forms. When we meet, we could babble back and forth. Or maybe, we could extend our hands toward one another and create a one hand dance together. I might invite you to tell me a big body story and you could move all around the room while talking. Oh! There are so many fun ways to PLAY on the way to being understood!
That's Coffee With Hallelujah! If you have time for coffee, you have time to create!
