#Repost @ailiebanks ・・・ Finding compassion doesn’t mean suppressing anger, forgiving the unforgivable or submitting to oppression & injustice. It simply means finding the humanity that links us. Online it has become so easy to dissociate from the fellow scared fleshy human that sits behind the screen. The history books have proven that fighting hate with hate just leads to war, yet hatred spreads like wildfire because the internet never sleeps. Rebel against the pressure to conform through cruelty. Accountability and empathy can coexist. Use your compassion as an act of resistance. Jeff Buckley said it best with his lyrics: ‘It’s so easy to laugh, it’s so easy hate... it takes guts to be gentle and kind’. 🌹 . . . #mobmentality #compassioniskey #bekindonline #illustration #quote #ailiebanks #compassionatecommunication #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #marshallrosenberg #empty #selfempathy #sourcingourlight #hardconversations
✋🏽Keep it. If there’s one message I’d like to communicate through my work, it is: Language is explicitly and implicitly used as a foundation of the structure of our thoughts, actions and relationships— AND how we use POWER. This comes back to “Be impeccable with your word”, one of @donmiguelruiz #fouragreements Kindness based in the omission/avoidance of the truth is oppressive. 🌀In what ways do you see it as oppressive to the recipient of the message? 🌀In what ways do you see it as oppressive to the sender of the message themselves? I have a lot of ideas about this, but am very curious about how you may have experienced this and/or what comes up for you around it. _ Keep it real and honest. And remember just because you want it to be true, doesn’t make it true. Feet on the ground, self-empathize and know your truth before expressing. _ No Shame Zone: I’ve done this, and am not perfect. Still becoming more aware of my blind spots and where I can uncover my truth. I’ve messed up and over-promised and under-delivered. I’ve expressed the most idealized version of what could-be. We are all working together, so I share everything with love and healing in mind. #openandhonest Quote by💭 — Rachel Simmons
*past tense* because it didn’t happen differently. It happened. You can recover. No matter how low you feel, how unknown the future may look... you can absolutely, little by little find your way through on the journey with self-empathy, self-love and self-respect.

Learning that values inflict pain— and when that happens, I want to choose to be a student and hear my heart’s lessons. To be vigilant about seeking out and knocking on closed doors within me— to be trusting & safe to be trusted.

Using internal resistance and irritation to PAUSE and connect with the fact that this experience is FOR me. No matter what stimulated the feelings, I get to rest in knowing it certainly is for me to show up for and use my faculties for and bring kindness and compassion to. When I empathize with myself first, I can empathize with them, and then there’s nothing to forgive. #Repost @gisellebuchanan ・・・ I’d like to think that the earth has a particular kind of order. Encoded within the seed is the 144 foot, 300 year old Willow tree. The caterpillar will one day have wings. We came to this earth with our final form inside of us. With our dreams to be the best version of ourselves possible in this lifetime. We will do that with the right nurturing. The acorn needs the soil and water. The caterpillar must nourish itself with enough leaves to sustain itself during its time spent in dormancy- stuck in what looks like suspension, a stillness, immobility, but is actually transformation. Trust that the final form you imagine is possible if you are willing to nourish the seeds. If you are willing to fill yourself with the right fuel for the periods of shifting form (even when to other people it may look like you have regressed). Hold close this knowing you have within you, that everything you dream yourself to be (not the dreams you’ve been conditioned into or the ones you’ve inherited from the pressures of others, but the one you came with, encoded in your cellular makeup) already is if you are willing to go where the light is. If you are willing to do the nourishing work. If you can withstand the tyranny of time.
Reminder than NVC is not meant to be a moral standard or used for moral superiority. I have seen this as a common critique of compassionate communication. Just a reminder for light warriors, those who use the gift of service and transformation, and anyone with intentions to make life more wonderful for everyone: let’s live our values of equality and challenge those reactions or learned ways of thinking of ‘the other’... there is no other. . . #Repost @mikikashtan ⬅️ Follow Miki, The Fearless Heart, NVC TRAINER ・・・ Nonviolence... . . #compassion #selfcompassion #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #morality #holistichealth #communicationskills #mutuality #hypnotherapy #hsp #equality #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #positivity #selfrespect #feels #gratitude #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy #compassionatecommunication

We all long for understanding. What a gift to care for yourself and set the intention to offer understanding by default, instead of expecting or being victimized by others’ inability to make clear requests. Marshall Rosenberg said, “never hear what people think...”. Thats part of living NVC and listening with compassion. Thank you for those in my life who have been able to show up for me with understanding, especially when I didn’t have to ask. 💓👂🏽👂🏽🦒 . . #khalilgibran . #compassion #selfcompassion #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #wholesome #holistichealth #communicationskills #marshallrosenberg #hypnotherapy #hsp #listening #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #positivity #selfrespect #feels #gratitude #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy #compassionatecommunication
Egos aside 👂🏽👂🏽 Only then can we bear the vulnerability of sharing personal stories and truly hear another’s heart.

aka use your spine. Not being responsible for others’ feelings does not excuse me from the work of waking up to how my behavior is a message. The message I intend will not always be what is heard, but it does not invalidate the message or pain it may have stimulated. ___ I know when I am reactive & messy, albeit authentic, I can be received as dramatic and ‘emotional’😦😥. Those messages can be hard to hear and make the disconnection gap wider. 🚧🚧🚧 In those unconscious, empty cup moments, what is your reactivity pattern? When being presented with an opportunity to reflect on how someone experiences you in a way you did not intend: how would you like to respond? ___ My personal answer to that is: id like to get much more comfortable grieving alone, accepting the disconnection instead of resisting it out of fear. I think that would help me make clearer requests of what I’d like with a better energy. Same amount of emotion, different package 🎁 At the end of the day, the folks we may really want or expect to hold us may not be available in that time those needs are in the red 📈. Parents, partners... anyone we have formed attachments to that matter, they are the first ones we turn to to help us through our big emotions, EVEN when stimulated by BEING in relationship to them!

💯🎯 Radical. Loving energy is exponentially more powerful than hate. NVC is the practical tool I have used in my life for applying the teaching “love your enemy”. 💓💓💓 Not “agree with your enemy”. Not “like your enemy”. Not “accept injustice and violence”. Just love in the face of unloving. Remain human in the face of dehumanization. ⬆️⬆️⬆️ Mentally, emotionally and spiritually rise in the face of the destructive strategies that you are affected by. 🦅🦅🦅 Love holds each other accountable for our humanness. Love responds quickly to disconnection to illuminate where we are broken. Spotlight. 💡💡💡 Free of shame, free of punishment, just the medicine of truth and healing love that honors one another despite _________. 👐🏽👐🏽👐🏽 That can be incredibly difficult when we have been deeply wronged. Especially when all our lives we have seen and been taught to blame and demonize what we experience as sources of pain. 😣😣😣 What if we prayed for people who hurt us? What if we ask empowering questions about our ability to respond with the kind of love we long for? Who is able to accept this work now?

Deconstructing the limitations of how we have learned to define love is a radical act. Question the concepts of what love is to you. Observe them and inspect them. Some things scatter from light 💡 💭quote: f scott fitzgerald . . #compassion #selfcompassion #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #meditation #holistichealth #communicationskills #quoteoftheday #hypnotherapy #lovingkindness #openhearted #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #lovequotes #selfrespect #feels #gratitude #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy #compassionatecommunication
I remember when I woke up to the awareness that I had (falsely) believed that because others’ interpreted my experience/sensitivity as “ridiculous” and “pathetic” that I had been internalizing that and seeing myself as a whole in that light. Oh, the victim mentality is so deceiving! I share the message of compassion and self-empathy because I have found that to be truly resilient, we have got to utilize our capacity to be our own champion, and hold our own space for ourselves to be accountable to the truth of ourselves and love ourselves unconditionally. That’s the kind of immune system we get to build around our mind and identity that allows healthy feedback and protects us from absorbing the judgements of others. We are all on our way in this journey. Each season brings out more layers to heal and develop. I celebrate sensitivity and those who may experience life in a more stimulating level than others. We must cherish our diversity and stories. Love, @sourcingourlight . .

Addendum to @sourcingourlight last post “And so it is. We'd have to let it go and know that we'd done the best we could to be true to our values. 🗝 Whether those who misunderstand you are strangers or family members, you have to choose what will drive your behavior: your own conscience or your fear of what others might think of you. Choose your conscience👩🏻‍⚖️. It lives inside of you and goes everywhere you go. Tolerating the fact that others believe you are dishonest/unkind/stingy/rude (fill in the blank) is not easy🦹🏻‍♀️. It takes a great deal of self-control not to retrace your steps and try to constantly explain yourself so that people might see you the way you see yourself👩🏼‍🚀. But trust me, you'll never finish the race if you do that👸🏻.” From the article “Being Misunderstood Is Painful” Written by Cami Ostman, M.S. for Psychology Today.

One strategy we use to protect ourselves from criticism is to compulsively offer stories to people to explain our behavior. Accountability and ownership of our miss-takes comes with the feelings of incompetence or embarrassment (or worse, Shame & Guilt). “Shoulds” are often the culprit if the distressing feelings that can arise when our behavior does not align with our values. Say less. Own it, acknowledge it, and speak from the truth of what you feel/need/request of yourself. Doing this touches the pain of it and heals it so quickly, and counterintuitively keeps the mind safe from paranoia and cognitive dissonance. . . #compassion #selfcompassion #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #ownership #holistichealth #communicationskills #meanwhatyousay #hypnotherapy #guilt #accountability #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #marshallrosenberg #selfrespect #feels #gratitude #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy #compassionatecommunication

🧗🏻‍♀️CELEBRATE YOURSELF 🙆🏻‍♀️ It feels so good to be acknowledged for the labor, intentions, growth and learning we make. Part of NVC that I deeply value is using language to communicate specifically what was done, how it felt and what needs were met by the experience. I’m wondering if you’re reading this, you may also be willing to take time today to reflect on the last month of January and see what comes to mind that you had done that met your needs? I celebrate with you! Often the ‘normal’ pattern is to easily look for and identify where we fall short. Maybe that signal of pain/disappointment is stronger than the quiet synchronicities and slower process of growth.

🔋🔋🔋 Give compassion, and believe you are 100% worthy of compassion in return. One prerequisite to receiving love fully is a belief that one can tolerate the risk of being vulnerable. Opening the doors that may have been closed to protect... co-creates space for the motion of empathy to emerge. 🌊 Image by🖤@sourcingourlight . . #compassion #selfcompassion #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #reciprocity #holistichealth #communicationskills #yesican #hypnotherapy #empath #positiveaffirmations #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #positivequotes #selfrespect #feels #gratitude #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy #compassionatecommunication
The total quantity & distribution of equity shifts according to our needs/values & the strategies used to meet those needs. . Strategies are 🗝 since we all are operating to the best of our ability with the information we have. Mindfulness + Self-empathy is a source of precious information. First, there might be some false beliefs, trauma or oppression to untangle, and as those become exposed, more information about what we truly WANT becomes possible to affirm ➕. Action & Resolution unite. We have all the answers and all the tools 🛠 to invest in the authentic vision 👐🏽. . 🖤🎨 @sourcingourlight original photo source: weheartit . . #compassion #selfcompassion #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #sensitivesoul #holistichealth #communicationskills #yesican #hypnotherapy #hsp #bethechange #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #positivity #selfrespect #feels #gratitude #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy #compassionatecommunication
✋🏽🎤💥 mic drop Fear can lead to to strategies lacking mindfulness and intention, yes? Fear stimulates primitive brain responses, yes? It’s wonderful to recognize the needs underneath worry & fear... that place of vulnerability & truth is real security when it is clearly defined and expressed, I believe.

Let my heart be soft and open. Let my heart give and be renewed. Come what may, the heart will transcend all darkness and heal any pain, because love is the medicine. I see people afraid of the world, turning against one another, holding back from embracing the hurt. The lie of scarcity and fear of 'evil'. I believe love is stronger than any misunderstanding, supremely stronger than anything. So whatever is scary, choose to love over worry or hate. Forgive even if they are not sorry. Love does not have any limitations. There will be a day when you realize all your fears are obsolete. That day might be today. 🖤🎨 @sarashakeel . . #compassion #selfcompassion #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #transformationalcoach #holistichealth #communicationskills #yesican #hypnotherapy #hsp #bethechange #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #positivity #selfrespect #feels #gratitude #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy #compassionatecommunication
ℹ️ Feelings as Information ℹ️ Feelings, vibes, impressions... it’s so awesome how we are designed to connect and communicate even unconsciously! Those feelings that get stimulated in you in response to others is a wonderful tool I bet you already use for mindfulness. 🧠 Notice! 🕵🏻‍♀️When you want to pull away or reject someone... how is that a reflection of your needs/values? The more we take responsibility for our mind, the less we automatically blame, criticize, or otherwise shortchange 💰 our own growth and self-empathy, the GREATER the likelihood we will meet our needs in a compassionate & respectful way for all involved. 💖 . . . #compassion #selfcompassion #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #sensitivesoul #holistichealth #communicationskills #mirrors #hypnotherapy #hsp #bethechange #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #positivity #selfrespect #feels #gratitude #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy #compassionatecommunication

One definition of 🕊PEACE🕊 attributed to J.H. Newman is: freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions. I 💓 this definition because it doesn’t imply perfect harmony, or an idealistic state of being that can often be elusive. To me, in reference to #compassionatecommunication this definition of Peace says I experience disquieting and/or oppressive thoughts/emotions and I follow them, painfully, to their root: the human needs of mine and others. That empathy— that presence with what is disquiet allows for a freedom from its control. Keep shining the light of awareness on those disquiet thoughts/emotions. They long to be free🕊💫 . . . #compassion #selfcompassion #nvc #nonviolentcommunication #heartcentered #peaceispossible #holistichealth #communicationskills #peacestudies #hypnotherapy #suffering #awakening #human #instafollow #selflove #psychology #mentalhealth #lovingkindness #selfrespect #feels #gratitude #sourcingourlight #empathy #selfempathy
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

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

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.

Challenge the power structures. Challenge the thinking that reinforces power-over paradigms. I challenge my oppressive patterns. I challenge others’ oppressive patterns.
