Do you know how to listen intuitively? There are three types of listening:
1Subjective Listening :you are listening to your partner and waiting for the appropriate word he or she will say so you’ll jump in, interrupt, and impose your view. You might want to feel significant by showing off your knowledge and wisdom, or you want to prove your partner wrong or to belittle them unconsciously. There are many reasons for subjective listening such as to analyze, criticize, or even to condemn.
2Objective Listening:you are listening and not imposing your opinion upon your husband or wife; you are listening and helping him or her to formulate his or her own view.
3Intuitive Listening:you are listening with your heart and intuition. When your husband or wife say a word within a sentence and your gut feeling tells you there is more to this word than what is said, take a deep breath and ask: what does this word mean to him or her? If it vibrates negative energy, the difficult part is to stay calm and ask the clarifying questions. It might be a deep pain that they never talked about before, or a memory they’d rather not remember. If it vibrates positive energy, then by all means it will be an opportunity to share the fun experience.
I’m only scratching the surface here with the different kinds of listening. In other blog posts I will talk more about other kinds of Listening.
