As women, we generally like to build connections with people and to nurture friendships by sharing stories. It feels good to share by talking. The chat goes back and forth and you build on one another’s comments. Have you ever noticed that while you are chatting with a good friend, you have an “Ah-ha moment”; that things just come together and make more sense after you’ve exchanged ideas with someone else. This is the gift of fertile listening. When someone truly listens to us, we find our own truths in ways that we can’t do alone. The act of having someone REALLY listen, and understand, and encourage further insight, brings out our truths and deeper insights. I know, it sounds too simple, but it is true. I recently participated in a 6 week exchange of ideas with a large group of women. The rules for sharing required only fertile listening. The positive shifts were amazing! I’ve also seen it many many times. As the listener, it is my privilege to be fully present for you and to help by asking the right questions to bring forth your own revelations. Yes, fertile listening can be very powerful! I would love the chance to show you on a free consultation!
