We have to connect with people on an emotional level before they will ever be able to take in new information or find those answers within themselves. For I have learned by science and my own stubbornness that people are the best experts on themselves –not me. But creating a space for another person to be, to be heard, to feel connected, that is what is healing. It is only then, that you’ve created a space for their own wonderful wisdom to come, or to share how something might be healing for you.
We must take off the earmuffs by listening, not by preaching advice. Not by “fixing” the problem, but by having the capacity to sit with the other person in their discomfort. To share in that experience of vulnerability. That is healing. That is love.
