One of the most amazing gifts we have available to us in this human experience is the gift of witnessing.
The trick is, we have to TUNE IN!
I stumbled upon the real miracle of this as I’ve done every other incredible miracle, I was working my craft and it popped in.
The first time this happened, I was writing a novel and in the middle of being on a roll, a new character popped in….ENTER STAGE LEFT.
I was so shocked, I had to sit back and let it sink in that this character was part of me and who in the heck was this?! And, how do I integrate this new person into my life?
The next time this little miracle dropped in, I was working my hypnosis craft. When people relax and are sharing the incredible landscape of their hearts with me….A GIFT BEYOND MEASURE…they often whisper, so I would focus in on their mouth to allow the aid of lip reading to help me hear them describe their experience.
Imagine my surprise my when I felt the beauty of their soul wash over me like an incredible mist of pure love….I WAS AWE STRUCK. It was as if the words, the vibration of them charged with their own awe were pulsing around me like surround sound in a theater.
It triggered such an wonder in me that I found myself eager to experience everything with such focus!
It began happening everywhere. Every flower, every dog, every experience held amazing hidden intricacies that I didn’t want to miss!
Bringing my focus in WOKE ME UP from the numb trance I’d been in, and woke me up to the miracles right in front of me.
It was as if I was waking up to a sense of presence that I’d never seen before and all from the simple act of being witness.
Recently, while taking a course in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, I experienced this again while actively listening while a partner shared something, then reflecting back what I heard. The words in between the words that were conveyed through the eyes and emotion in the voice. Even the words that were spoken silently before the words themselves ever came out.
Most of our communication is non verbal, and the portion that is, is often not heard because we are busy preparing what we are going to say next!
STOP – WATCH – LISTEN
If you want to give a gift to someone you love, or some thing…a job, a business, a piece of furniture…EXPERIENCE IT like you had to write an essay on it or paint a picture of it. Or, like you loved it as if you’re mere existence depended upon it.
It will be a gift both to you and to whomever or whatever you’re witnessing.
So……I ask you…..Can I get a witness?
It’s time to stand up and be counted!
Can I get a heck Yeah?!
That’s what I thought. 🙂
