We can all improve our communication skills!  Common blockages to communication are:  Stress, Emotional Tension, Lack of Sleep, Hunger, Depression/Anxiety and History of Trauma (among others)…

Start with the 3 A’s!  Anyone can begin to improve their communication skills by giving more attention to the 3 A’s of communication:
  • Self AWARENESS – Taking the time to check in with our inner knowing before responding.  Exploring and understanding our patterns so that we may begin to create more effective habits of communication.
  • Radical Self ACCEPTANCE – Accepting how we feel without judgment, doubt or denial
  • ASSERTIVENESS Thoughtfully and respectfully expressing our feelings and responding to requests honestly, with our own well-being factored into the equation. :)
When we are communicating from this place, with our 3 A’s attended to, we feel lighter, freer, more empowered!  Our relationships are more satisfying (no more need to build resentment), our communication is more authentic and  productive and we build confidence and trust in ourselves that positively impacts all areas of our lives.

Also, remember it is as important to listen and hear as it is to communicate honestly and respectfully.  Give both sides of the balance sheet your attention and you will notice a change for the better.
