Why Listening Is So Powerful!

Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force.  When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand.Shel Silverstein

the gift

The ultimate gift we can give anyone is the gift of deep and unhindered listening. Why do so many people yearn to talk and express themselves? What gift will they shower on us next? We give when we listen, and we receive at the same time! Listening is a very profitable venture!

making space

When we listen deeply to others, we allow them space to express themselves. We give them permission to be who they are. We enable them to be creative. We witness the unfurling of their soul. We do a great service when we truly listen.
