Listen with Intent – Week 50

This week is all about connecting with people and allowing myself to go deeper into the community. I often tend to do become more of a hermit in the holiday season. This will allow me to reach out more and go deeper with my friends. It will also allow me to connect my thoughts and others’ words more deeply, see patterns, look for what’s unsaid. and more.

Here’s the pin where I got the lettering..

Part of going deeper is seeking things. Listening deeply to the universe, seeking its lessons and signs. Seeking the real meaning behind the words of others. Looking for my desires and listening for the good. What I like about seek is that it’s very active. It implies involvement, actively trying to go deeper. Here’s to a week of seeking!

And for my final month, I decided to pick Listen Deeply. December is a reflective month for me. I like to slow down and go deeper. I like to read, think about, and journal on self-growth. My wishes, hopes, plans, goals, growth for the next year. It’s a great time for me to go deeper.

For my last intention in November I decided to pick donate. Donating my time, my support, my attention to those I love. Listening more openly, listening for an opportunity that might need me to donate more of myself to the conversation. It seems weird when I write it down but to me, this intention makes perfect sense :)

Another way of listening kindly, for me, is obliging. Being willing to do what the other person wants. My kids often want to come talk to me and many times, i am in the middle of something and my instinct is to tell them to come back later. But this week is all about obliging them. Putting them first. Listening to them when they would like me to.

For this week’s intention I decided to go with support. I believe a big part of being kind is being supportive, allowing others to be who they are and supporting them instead of listening with any agenda of my own. To me, this means asking questions, being positive, and genuinely listening.
