Interrupting

    Remember how you felt the last time someone interrupted you? Were you able to feel your feelings and still listen without allowing your anger or frustration to be in the way?

    Can you imagine if you could feel the internal chaotic energy when someone interrupts you, and let it run through the system? There’s nothing else to do. Just be aware of the sensations and simply return your attention to listening to the person speaking, who also wants to be heard.

    Noticing your unsettled feelings, and not adding blame and accusation, you may find you can listen and feel at the same time.

    Actually, you might remember how it feels to be interrupted the next time you want to speak when someone else is speaking, and not do it!

    Remembering awareness is a gift to yourself and others. Please take care.

    Try this the next time you are aware that you feel stressed and want to quiet down the inner chaos quickly. Walking, driving, standing still or sitting, quietly say while breathing in, "I am breathing in, and I am at peace." Say while breathing out, "I am breathing out, and I am at peace." Focus attention on what happens. If you become distracted, simply return your focus to your words and notice what's happening within. Repeat until you notice a shift, and are ready to stop. The cells of the body receive thought as instruction, and they are willing followers to whatever we think. Saying we are at peace allows the body to shift from feeling rushed around, to slowing down, so we can feel quieter inside. With the goal of maintaining balance in all things, use this practice with care, and let awareness be your guide. Sometimes this practice is helpful, and other times, it can be used to distract us from exploring mistaken beliefs that keep us rushing around. Remembering awareness is a gift to yourself and others.
