“Only that in you which is me can hear what I’m saying.”
― Ram Dass
I can’t help a person if I don’t meet them where they are. I need to be quiet and listen for where my patient is, psychologically, emotionally, behaviorally and physically. If I skip this step, and tell them what I want them to hear, or push them to where I want them to be, the session is lost.
I have to slow down and speak to the part of them that can hear me. I’ve found this to be challenging, and incredibly rewarding. It takes patience, humility and trust to allow, and not mess, with a humans unfolding.
I can imagine that many of my blogs don’t resonate with you. And, I imagine, there are some that you are ready to hear.
