Why is miscommunication our biggest flaw and why do we pay so little attention to it? Through a new understanding of miscommunication, how and why it happens and how to recognize it within ourselves, we can fix relationships on all levels. This starts with visible and audible communication and moves right down to spirit communication. Misunderstanding someone when they’re trying to communicate to us can be caused by many reasons. It is not just as simple as “they just do not understand me.” The first step in solving the misunderstanding between two energies is quieting the physical sensations that miscommunication can cause. Frustration, irritation, anger.. and the next step is understanding that we don’t all learn in the same way and we all have individual ways we’ve been raised which leads us to very different ways of perceiving life and its situations. Many of us have a mistaken assumption that there is an “average” or “common” understanding of simple concepts, but that is far from the truth and is what leads to most miscommunication.
Our creation and connections to our surroundings in the way we learn is key. Association, and what we choose to associate with in a particular conversation, is eventually where the outcome of the conversation will lead us. It is almost too easy to assume a reaction in someone else through our own eyes because we’ve been thought it or we’ve seen someone go through it. Assuming does not necessarily mean that the outcome will be the same, but more often than you think the outcome becomes the same because the assumptions trigger reactions in us that lead our spirit towards the same finish line. Once we cross that finish line we feel accomplishment, but if we do not learn to trigger different, more emotionally effective responses we keep our self in a loop of the same outcomes over and over.
Whether “good” or “bad”, if the outcome is to be different in a positive way our reactions have to change and we have to be more aware and in tune with our self through others by paying attention to our own reactions. Meaning, to learn about self, pay attention to where your thoughts go when anger is triggered. Anger sometimes puts us back to the beginning. It is like starting a level all over again, everything is good in the beginning because we’re familiar with this part, but once we enter the realm where we failed before and enter into a nervous state we start triggering the same emotional outcomes that we have so many times before. Some emotional outcomes start opening the same doors toward anger and we end up where we started again.
The point is, if we continue to approach the same problems in the same way, the same results will follow. We have to change our emotional state and listen openly to the person trying to communicate in order to understand them better and vice versa. Miscommunication is the root to a lot of the current world problems. By listening to the communicator and being aware of our reactions as they’re trying to communicate, we in return become better communicators. Listen with the intent to understand, not with the intent to respond.
