Most days we walk through the day without much thought about how we will communicate. We speak to our family in the same old way. Our chatter with the store clerks is fleeting. The emails we send are filled with our wants, needs, desires and demands. Where is the communication that is filled with goodness and intention?
We say our intention is to communicate with love and kindness, but is that really true? If that were so true then our own inner voices would be much kinder and loving.
The thought towards someone who is homeless would be of gratitude that they have the courage to be there and that you are able to help even if only with a kind word. Our inner dialogue towards someone who is obese would be much nicer – maybe something like Bless them for healing their wounds.
Our frustrations towards the little things that aren’t going right would be to cut the cord, give yourself grace and turn to the next thing. The energy we emit when interacting with someone we aren’t in agreement with would be of love and forgiveness.
When you are mindful in your communication in the quiet inner voices that reach outward then you are being mindful on all levels. The most intense energy comes from our disdain inside and not what we are saying verbally.
Truth is another one of those communications that we want to include in our mindfulness exercises and know that mindfulness is truly a muscle that must be exercised every day. The reason for this is that we are filled with so much negativity in the media that it exercise of the mind for intentional goodness is imperative for it to be natural.
Our entire existence would be filled with the ability to Mastering Our Energy, which helps us master our mind and ultimately our life.
How are you being more mindful in your inner and outer speech, with your staff, family, friends and those who don’t look the way you do?
