FACE IT You’ll know it’s an opportunity to go deep and heal when your reaction to an event or action is instinctively terrifying and all resources go into defense mode (However that looks for you. What’s your pattern?). I’m not talking about trauma occurring, I’m talking about re-traumatization of an old wound likely from childhood. What is important is to recover from the stimulation with a PAUSE. Don’t try to push through or shove it down to avoid appearing weak or judgement... sit with that inner-child and comfort them now. Be what you need for yourself and give space to let the unconscious memories, beliefs and wounds come to the surface. Really just ask for what you need from your higher self and let loving awareness/respect touch those wounds. Finally, be patient with the recovery process. Your nerves may be tender from allowing vulnerability, and just keep forgiving yourself— you’re in new territory, doing something new, you’re learning, you’re growing. 🖤re-posted from @goddess__awakening via the inspiring @rooting.and.rising #awareness #mindfulness #compassion #selfcompassion #compassionatecommunication #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #peaceispossible #holistichealth #communicationskills #peacestudies #hypnotherapy #suffering #awakening #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #lovingkindness #selfrespect #feels #gratitude #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy
Taking ::care:: of the jackals. Sitting with them. Touching the pain— bringing it to the light. Uncovering the life inside that finally has the spaciousness to express itself, as mournful as it is... it is valid. Your experience is valid. Your needs are valid. Your dream is valid. . . 🖤🎨: @jessicashirley_art jessicashirleyart.com . . #awareness #mindfulness #compassion #selfcompassion #compassionatecommunication #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #peaceispossible #holistichealth #communicationskills #peacestudies #hypnotherapy #suffering #awakening #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #lovingkindness #selfrespect #feels #gratitude #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy
Again, empathy does not equate to a permanent agreement for more empathy. && receiving empathy/ unconditional positive regard in one moment does not guarantee it for the next. Oh, how I have spent many, many times back in the space of “if you loved me you would...” and “you must not love me because you you don’t ...” or worse “I must be worthless if no one cares to understand me”. No. Not true! No matter where you are on the spectrum of recovery from depression (internalized, self-directed fear of anger) or anxiety (insecurity), recovery is absolutely possible, one tiny step, one thought, one heartbeat at a time. #recovery #resilience #emotionalintelligence #selfresponsibility #stepup #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #compassionatecommunication #empathy #selfempathy #peermentor #peersupport #sourcingourlight #selflove #whatislove #mindfulness
REJECTION Remembering that only I am responsible for my feelings, and the wounded anxieties that can surface when the need for Belonging or To Matter are the roots that connect me back to Choice. To redirect the anxieties and woundedness, gently and patiently, toward the gift of awareness. Abandonment & Rejection are very human experiences... let the sting of the grief be a call to action... answer the call with compassion. You’re never alone. . . 🖤🎨: poemsquoteswords.com
CREATION NEVER STOPS Here’s a reminder: 🐝 You ARE moving the needle. 🐝 You ARE taking action. 🐝 Your decisions ARE wise. Stay patient. Follow feelings of discontent or dissatisfaction and listen for where to adjust toward what you WANT to create. . . #awareness #mindfulness #compassion #selfcompassion #compassionatecommunication #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #peaceispossible #holistichealth #communicationskills #peacestudies #hypnotherapy #feminineenergy #awakening #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #lovingkindness #selfrespect #feels #understanding #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy
Forgiveness means I redirect anger away from a person and use that energy to cleanse & love myself through whatever I experience. For anger to be expressed fully, we have got to connect with what is alive within our experience. Listen to the signal of a very precious need that is not being met. It shifts the internal environment to nurture your emotional/mental wellness. I can learn & use the emotional information to guide my actions in alignment with my values.

Embracing my own judgements as my responsibility. To translate my automated judgements into unmet needs. To view observable actions/behaviors as stimulus, never the cause of MY feelings... it all comes back to my own relationship to the stimulus. Judgements push disconnection further and creates environment fit for conflict. Nonviolence embraces the conflict & does not fight it. . . . #awareness #mindfulness #compassion #selfcompassion #compassionatecommunication #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #peaceispossible #holistichealth #communicationskills #peacestudies #hypnotherapy #feminineenergy #awakening #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #lovingkindness #selfrespect #feels #understanding #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy

Made this last week & invited my littles to create with me. It was NECESSARY to express creatively to relieve/direct the release of beliefs/blockages. With that has come a deep gratitude for the opportunity to practice self-compassion and remember once again how compassion is only possible because of an understanding, an experience, and accepting that suffering is included in that. The releases coming through just leave me feeling lighter and more aware of compassionate possibilities where there was no room before. If you’re seeing this, I offer you a sincere gift of my prayer that peace & gentleness embrace your actions as they do in your thoughts.

I’m interested in the TRANS•PERSONAL... trans=beyond, persona=mask In my relationships, work & communication, I am hearing and looking for what is beyond the surface. #marshallrosenberg recommends to never hear what people think, hear the needs... and I really take that to heart and try to practice. In my life coaching, hypnotherapy, bodywork, compassionate communication practice & artwork, I’m connecting with the transcendent aspects of humanity to understand more of what I believe is our true nature.

PERMISSION 🏄🏽‍♀️If empathy/understanding/space to be heard is what would make life more wonderful for you, *ask permission* for that space from the person you would love to receive it from. Sometimes we expect our friends, partners, family or even company representatives to be willing to provide the space to get our need met and the problem with that is setting up the exchange for possible resistance, rejection or obligation-energy. Asking permission sounds like “I have a few things on my mind I’d love to get some empathy about, would you be willing to listen to me for 10 minutes?” People WANT to give and be of service. And if they are not available in that moment, they can propose another time so that the quality of connection can be as clear as you would like. It feels good for people to say YES and GIVE from the heart rather than obligation, and a request gives their brain a specific focus on what you are wanting from them in order to make the decision. Please please please ask for clarity in the comments or illuminate others with your own experiences with this distinction. 🖤🎨: @xiolathefairy . . . #awareness #mindfulness #compassion #selfcompassion #compassionatecommunication #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #peaceispossible #holistichealth #communicationskills #peacestudies #hypnotherapy #faithful #trustyourself #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #radicalchange #selfrespect #feels #radicalselflove #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy

I’m going in. 🔦👩🏼‍🚀 When we talk about executive functions in the brain and the most complex forms of brain activity, we know it is taking place in the “higher” outermost areas. When it comes to the heart, we really are aiming for the innermost depths. How to bridge to the inner heart: 🔦Stop. Transition focus to dropping inside the heartspace. Hands empty with palms up or over your heart. Observe the mechanics of breathing and heart rate. 🔦Eyes closed. Take all the time necessary OR available to establish a balance. Imagine disconnecting from all outer matters/concerns/events. If there is a specific reason you are choosing to consult your heart, that objective will always stay on the surface of your intention while making the most room available for your energy/ attention by letting other things be put aside for the time being. 🔦Prepare yourself for any possible outcome. Part of the power of the heart comes from trust/faith. Your heart may have a difficult message or challenging information for you, so accepting the full spectrum of possibilities ahead of time makes it easier for the truth to be heard. 🔦Once a message/gut feeling is received, know that is a piece of information that is a valuable ingredient for decision-making. We get to use our self-empathy, self-understanding to play with our higher level thinking abilities and come up with strategies that honor values & needs. 🖤🎨: @buko2 . . #awareness #mindfulness #compassion #selfcompassion #compassionatecommunication #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #peaceispossible #holistichealth #communicationskills #peacestudies #hypnotherapy #hearthealing #trustyourself #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #listening #selfrespect #feels #heartchakra #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy
I have such a vision for peace and ideals, AND I experience intense rage. Real self-development and actualization requires lots of study and investment in understanding of the “not nice” aspects of consciousness. For someone like me who reeeeeally dislikes conflict, it took decades for me to ACCEPT rage, and I’m still learning how to express that in an honest + positive way. ⚖️I choose to prioritize self-empathy. ⚖️I choose to express honestly. ⚖️I hold myself accountable to my values and vision. . . . . 📝Thank you for this @whostoleserendib ! #awareness #mindfulness #compassion #selfcompassion #compassionatecommunication #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #peaceispossible #holistichealth #communicationskills #peacestudies #hypnotherapy #visioneering #trustyourself #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #expressyourself #selfrespect #feels #rage #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy
•How To Be A Safe Space For Honest Expression• In NVC, we use ‘truth’ in terms of self-empathy rather than judgement of self/others. We know that unresolved trauma doesn’t disappear, we need to process and find ways of making sense of our stories. If you want to know how to contribute to healing in others’ trauma, start with the intention to connect with the other persons’ interpretation of life, their story. Safety is in the intention to connect at the heart, on the level of feelings & needs in the moment as these experiences are recalled. Believe survivors & also listen to survivors. If you notice yourself becoming stimulated by others’ experiences, that’s sympathy, not empathy— that’s your cue to pause, breath and self-empathize before coming back to listening— maintain high-quality connection & let the wholeness emerge. . . 🖤🎨: “NO MORE” by Kristin Rothbart . . #awareness #mindfulness #compassion #selfcompassion #compassionatecommunication #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #peaceispossible #holistichealth #communicationskills #peacestudies #hypnotherapy #honesty #trustyourself #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #listentosurvivors #selfrespect #feels #believesurvivors #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy
•I•N•T•E•N•T•I•O•N• More powerful than the intellectual meaning we apply to words, is the true intention from the speaker. When I notice my words have drifted from the intention on my heart, I pause and ask “what am I thinking to myself about this person/situation?” Oops, I wasn’t in a place to take the wheel with my reaction in a way that meets my needs OR intention. ::COURSE CORRECTION:: 🌈Connection🌈 This image shows how an intention to control/dominate, despite that it is a strategy to meet unment needs, can sound very neat and have an appearance of empathy.

JUDGEMENT We all do it. It keeps us and our children safe. So let’s not demonize judgement, but rather use it as a tool for awareness and in making self-responsible choices! Any #perfectionists out there? Here is a reminder that our highest #visions and ideals are meant to INSPIRE, not be the yardstick by which we judge and criticize because *spoiler alert* perfection already exists, it’s only our expectations that put us in RESISTANCE/DEFENSE against what-is. Life is not linear: it’s meant to grow from miss-takes. Releasing judgements opens the energy of change— and yes it takes guts to be vulnerable enough for change or to acknowledge past errors. Trust the process. It’s bigger than You. It’s for you & never against you. You are here to dispense your gifts; let no-thing stop you! . #awareness #mindfulness #compassion #selfcompassion #compassionatecommunication #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #peaceispossible #holistichealth #communicationskills #peacestudies #hypnotherapy #goodgrief #trustyourself #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #grief #selfrespect #feels #trustyourgut #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy
Re: depression/anxiety 🐺🐺🐺 In NVC we call the voice of guilt, shame and depression (internalized anger) “Jackal ears in”. The Jackal is the symbol of thoughts/words that blame and criticize, and ears are ‘in’ because they are aimed at ourselves. 🐺🐺🐺 If you have experienced depression/anxiety, I’m sure you can relate to the patterns of thoughts that become automatic... where we can lose awareness of our choices when hearing difficult messages, especially the ones that sound like your own voice to yourself. 🐺🐺🐺 Part of strengthening our awareness of our choices in how to respond to our own difficult thoughts is simply watching and becoming aware of the Jackal voice. There ARE needs under criticism and judgement. What needs is Jackal trying to meet? 🐺🐺🐺 I am not my thoughts. I choose to listen to myself. I am safe to connect with my pain- to shed the light of understanding & compassion. . 🖤🎨: @dappermouth . #awareness #mindfulness #compassion #selfcompassion #compassionatecommunication #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #peaceispossible #holistichealth #communicationskills #peacestudies #hypnotherapy #goodgrief #trustyourself #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #grief #selfrespect #feels #trustyourgut #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy
Cultivating the strength to be gentle in spite of anything. People who need empathy the most, often express it in violent ways... desperately and tragically attempting to fill that void of understanding. At the same time, that violence can easily be turned inward. . NVC is a difficult practice for that reason, but it has guided me to get my response-abilities strong so that I may be gentle enough to make compassionate giving and receiving more likely in my life. . 🖤🎨 repost @mariarharrison by unknown . #awareness #mindfulness #compassion #selfcompassion #compassionatecommunication #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #peaceispossible #holistichealth #communicationskills #peacestudies #hypnotherapy #truepower #trustyourself #humanist #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #gentleness #selfrespect #feels #strength #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy

The intention at compassionate communication practice group is to show up and practice without study time or detailed prompts so our hearts and curious minds can travel through whatever is alive. In this way, attention is on honest expression, not being right or speaking NVC “right”. Last Sunday, we were able to meet the need for empathy, connection and understanding which led to concrete actions we requested of ourselves that were grounded in the consciousness of #nonviolentcommunication and #selfcompassion . Simplicity was another important theme... and I believe the paradigm of this way of meeting each other contributed to the richness gained from it. .

I have been feeling helpless; dominated by injury. As a take away for me from compassionate communication practice today, I recognize my capability to cultivate daily intention—to visualize my day, to see myself calm, soft, grounded— feel how I want to connect with my kids, how I want them to receive me.

Say it with me. No person IS toxic. Their actions/behaviors may have a toxic impact, but that does not mean we need to label or define a person in a static, unchanging way that disregards the rest of who they are. In NVC, we look at behavior as attempts to meet human needs—and compassionate giving is our true nature. Indications that there is a disconnect between our giving nature and our thoughts/behavior is very painful and often contributes to violence internally and overflows to others. People who are struggling are worthy of kindness, compassion and help. By no means does this mean we are permissive of the behavior or do not enforce boundaries— it often means that if the person is unwilling to engage in communication that we use the protective use of force— not to punish or make them suffer, but to prevent injury or injustice. . What are your thoughts? Have you considered someone a “toxic person”? . #awareness #mindfulness #compassion #selfcompassion #compassionatecommunication #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #peaceispossible #holistichealth #communicationskills #peacestudies #hypnotherapy #toxicpeople #trustyourself #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #toxicmasculinity #selfrespect #feels #toxicrelationships #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy
Part of why I share this #compassionatecommunication is because I am haunted by a language that makes my human experience appear pathological. It is so deeply important to me, that recovery from depression and anxiety include a new empowering language— to transform the thinking that contributes to violence. ... I struggle every single day with this. I’m trying but I’m far from perfect or all-knowing. ... Theory is nothing without practice.

Not mutually exclusive 😉 🏵We can make boundaries without making enemy images of others. 🏵Listen to the feelings that are stimulated by others’ behavior. 🏵How did their behavior impact you? 🏵How did your choices create participation in the situation? 🏵Empathize with the other person. What could they be feeling and needing? (This can be done silently without them) 🏵What would you like to request of yourself and/or the other person?

⚫️What is Compassionate Communication? 🔘It’s nothing new. It’s a focus of attention on whether people’s needs are being fulfilled, and if not, what can be done to fulfill these needs. It shows us how to express ourselves in ways that increase the likelihood others will WILLINGLY CONTRIBUTE to our wellbeing. It also shows us how to RECEIVE THE MESSAGES of others in ways that remain compassionate. ⚫️What it is not: 🔘Repression, Bypassing Reality, Weak Boundaries, Avoidance...it works even if one person is applying it, although it does require a bit of vulnerability. 🔵🔵🔵 I welcome EVERYONE to drop-in online ✨(Registration required, link in bio) ✨ and use this safe space to practice a valuable way to think, communicate and generate strategies to influence yourself and others! . #awareness #mindfulness #compassion #selfcompassion #compassionatecommunication #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #peaceispossible #holistichealth #communicationskills #peacestudies #hypnotherapy #onlinegroup #trustyourself #human #instafollow #peersupport #psychology #mentalhealth #reflection #zoommeeting #feels #onlinelearning #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy
