Are You Really Listening? by Jac

I couldn't figure out what the problem was. I was eating right, exercising, and trying to get enough sleep. But I just wasn't happy. I felt stuck. I was incessantly trying to tame my inner beast. My body was paying for it. My jaw, neck and head constantly hurt. My low back and hips were out of alignment, and each step I tookor didn't take—reminded me. And my poor face was forming volcanoes like crazy.

I decided it was definitely time for a zone. My dear sister came to the rescue. Unusually, when she reached the ear signal, it hurt!! Our eyes connected and we both knew what it meant. I rapidly and sarcastically told her to shut up—lol! Why? Because I didn't want to hear it. Yet, I did want to hear it. (The emotional tie with the ear has to do with not listening. Funny.)

Her words of advice were to start perceiving the sound beyond the words people speak, for many times people's actions and feelings have more to reveal than what they vocalize. It's about depth.

I didn't quite know what to do with that piece of advice. But later that night, I got into a conversation with my mom about why I was feeling stuck. As we talked, I realized that the answers I've been looking for have been staring me in the face. They weren't quite obvious because they went deeper than the surface. 

Time after time, I've been blessed with clarity of mind following a zoning session. And this zone was no different. Suddenly, everything was clear. I wasn't unhappy because I have issues (which, unfortunately, is one of my default thought patterns), I was unhappy because I wasn't paying attention to the answers and the signs that were so subtly blatant. 

Once I saw them for what they were, I knew exactly how to move forward. Consequently, my burdens were lifted, my headache disappeared, my face cleared up, and I felt peace in my life for the first time in weeks. What a blessing!!
