"BLANK " BETWEEN THE LINES
Good day and I hope you are having a great week. This week, I am tackling communication and linking it to The Law of Attraction (LOA), providing an opportunity to learn and use this lesson for success. I am sure you have heard of the phrase “read between the lines”. If you have not, it basically means that you need to make your own conclusion about the meanings of conversations not just by what is said directly but what you think is meant which can be completely different depending on who you are talking to and the situation in which you find yourself. It is an art. It is tricky. I try to avoid it at all costs. I think you should too, which is why I am dedicating this week’s blog posting to the subject.
Let me give you an example that happened to me recently. I occasionally share my own life experiences here, to the dismay of my wife, not because I want to show off, but because the transparency will give my readers a sense of reality, and concreteness of the fact that this stuff actually does work. Here is the situation. I am preparing to take a shower, and as I step into the shower, I see a dead moth at the corner of the shower. I don’t know how that thing got there. I have little children, so maybe the screen door was left open etc. It is not relevant to the situation. I go to grab a tissue paper to pick up the thing before I start my shower, and my wife walks in and asks what am I doing? I say “there is a moth in the shower, and I think it has been there for a while, so I am throwing it out”. She turns to me and says “so your saying I don’t clean?” Holly crap, where did that come from? So now I am back pedaling and becoming defensive and saying crap like “no, I did not say anything like that” blah, blah, blah.
Now my wife is usually very intuitive, but she has been under allot stress this particular week and I guess I can now, in hind side, see the way things progressed. Her vibration was of stress and conflict, and she attracted to her more opportunity to have conflict. If both of us were not in tune with how things work, you can see how that whole situation could erupt into a full blown argument over really nothing significant. All because we read between the lines. Gladly because we are deliberate creators, usually one or both of us figures out the situation. We looked at each other and laughed. We both realized that something was pushing us off of our balance point.
There is a lot of room when we try to interpret what people are telling us. If we cannot take people at their word, then all of our emotions will play a part in deciding what is the meaning of the conversation. If we are a deliberate creator and we “always” think about things occurring for our best interest then all is well, but even those of us who are in tune with the LOA, sometimes are off our game. In those instances we cannot help but bring our lower vibration into the meaning and inadvertently may see thing that are not there. Because we are in tune, things manifest quicker for us. That is good and not so good. Remember what we concentrate on we create opportunities to experience more and more in our reality. You have to be clear in your conversation and you need to take people at their word. You may think that is a naïve way of thinking. So be it. If your view of the word is that “people will not say what they mean” then you will attract opportunities to prove yourself correct. If you choose to believe people at their word then, more often than not, you will also prove yourself correct. It is law.
I just find it more simple to speak clearly about what I mean, and have the same expectation of people. Just like goals, if your communication is not clear then your meaning is not clear, and your conclusions will not be the way you want them to be. Clarity is the key in goals, communication, moral values, and pretty much everything that matters. Be clear. Don’t guess at what people mean. If you are confused, ask open ended questions until you are clear about what they mean. By the same token do not be vague and assume people know what you mean (LADIES THIS ONE IS FOR YOU SPECIALLY) . People are not mind readers. This is especially true in relationships. Do not get lazy no matter how long you have had the relationship. In business or personal relationship, laziness, and taking the other for granted spells disaster (GUYS, THIS ONE IS FOR YOU SPECIALLY).
