My grandma doesnâ€™t hearÂ very well even with hearing aids, but if sheâ€™s tuned-in she knows whatâ€™s going on even from the other room.Â This is especially true if you donâ€™t want her to hear what you are saying! I noticed in a recent visit with her that Iâ€™d be thinking of something and sheâ€™d come in from the other room and answer my question or suggest we get milk at the grocery store, something I was about to mention.Â Yet there are certain people in her life, her children in particular, that she has a harder time hearing than the rest of us.
Her physical sense of hearing doesnâ€™t get temporarily worse and sheâ€™s demonstrated that where her hearing falls short she can make up for it with her intuition. But like many of us who are challenged by certain relationships in our lives, the unresolved energy between her and her children causes her to resist what they have to say. She canâ€™t hear it and it has nothing to do with the volume, her ability or her intuition.Â Sheâ€™s blocked.
We figure out how to navigate our home environment using all six senses, first learning to intuitively read our parents before we understand verbal communication.Â As adults, when we ask family members to engage in new levels of communication sometimes they just donâ€™t get it and seem to sort of glaze over.Â This happens in marriage and long-term friendships too.
We try to communicate in many different ways and find that itâ€™s not getting through. Our friend or family member canâ€™t hear us.Â All approaches to expression fail to get the point across.Â We might as well be speaking a different language given the lack of understanding or recognition.Â And we wonder if our intuition is misleading us that something is amiss because our loved one doesnâ€™t validate our experience with acknowledgment.Â Itâ€™s frustrating.
What we are experiencing is a threshold of capacity in the person.Â While it may seem that it is their choice not to hear us, it is more likely a spiritual or emotional block so deep that they canâ€™t consciously make the choice.Â We are trying to accomplish the impossible.Â The only way to get past this block is for the person to have some form of healing breakthrough that opens them up to hearing. It canâ€™t be forced and it will only happen if they seek out the shift for themselves.
When weâ€™ve reached a point where itâ€™s clear that nothing we say will get through. Â Our best path is to turn our attention inward and begin clearing out the blocks in our own energy field.Â In mediation, we visualize energy moving out of physical body such as rejection, resistance, judgment, frustration and any sense that we wonâ€™t be ok unless this person hears us. The energy can move into a rose or bubble then that object, as seen in our minds-eye is sent to a distant place to dissolve.
After weâ€™ve cleaned out our aura body we feel lighter.Â To complete the empowerment process we can visualize filling our space in with the sensations of having our needs met in relationship, of being heard, understood and accepted.Â Then in the physical world, find a place where we can communicate our experience and be heard, acknowledged, even if that is in the privacy of our own journal. Â We focus on building relationships where we are heard.
