Communication is such a big part of our life. We communicate in every moment, though we might not be aware of it. Most of us are accustomed to think of communication as verbal. I know this is what I was taught through my education and upbringing. Even more so, this verbal communication was taught to be very linear, rational and logical.
My education and professional background is in the field of economics and politics; two fields, which for the most part, are based on communication devoid of emotions, love and authenticity.
Communicating in ways that honored and expressed my inner world of emotions, feelings, intuition and other sensitivities was not encouraged, and of course I am not alone.
As women, our realm of communication extends far beyond the logical, rational world that we are educated in. Our realm of communication lives in our bodies, in our emotions and feelings, in our womb and heart. As women we are very sensitive to our surroundings, often picking up the emotions and feelings of others. This is a natural part of who we are, in built, if you will, to the qualities of being a mother, a nurturer, a caretaker, a lover.
It is a gift to be able to communicate beyond the verbal realm, for it is in this space that we are able to access much deeper knowing, wisdom and insight.
This gift lies in our ability to access our inner life and go deeply into communication with ourselves.
In my own journey and with many of the women I work with, we get stuck, confused, shy and silenced in our ability to communicate because we are not in tune with or honoring our inner world.
Because we live in a masculine society that prioritizes logic and rationality, we have internalized our own suppression of our feelings, emotions and natural sensitivities. This suppression leads to confusion and doubt as to what we are actually feeling, which makes it difficult to make decisions and authentically express ourselves in the world. Many of us as women, have lost connection to our inner voice.
So a question, are you listening or communicating to your inner voice? And when I say your inner voice, I am not talking about all those little voices that you pick up that are the thoughts of others. It’s also not the voice that arises from your personality, with certain pre-set judgments, opinions, learned ways of being. I am talking about the inner voice that comes when you go silent, when you tune in to your body, to your breath. The voice that arises when you get out of the mind and out of thought.
It is completely contrary to all we have been taught, however it is exactly this communication that comes from the inner silence of our being, that is the most powerful and sacred communication we can have in life.
It is what will keep us in our feminine power!
