Intuitive Communication

by Kay Taylor April 22, 2010 11:24 PM EST
With the current Mercury retrograde cycle in the sign of Taurus, communication is highlighted with an emphasis on getting relationships on firm footing. Taking the time to be clear is essential, and being willing to carry on a long, slow conversation during the next few weeks may achieve much better results than assuming a few words will create the desired stability and staying power.

In any conversation there are multiple factors at play. There are the words themselves expressing each person's best attempt to express their thoughts and feelings. Often we listen to the words and react instantly, our triggered inner parts wanting to be right, to be seen, to not be accused of something unfairly. The words get batted back and forth like a ball with no real progression, understanding or compromise.

Underneath the words are some of the deeper unconscious issues and feelings, the soul's path desiring to be manifested more clearly.

If we listen with our heart, we will hear the truth under another person's words. If we get out of the way and breathe deeply, slowing down, trusting that communication is in fact a process and not a quick game with a clear finish line, we may be able to mirror back to the other what we really hear them saying.

That's all any of us really wants. We want to be seen. To be heard. To be loved exactly as we are. Yet we jump up and down like little children at a birthday party trying to get attention, often saying things that trigger exactly the opposite of our deepest desires.

Somebody has to start. Someone has to be the one who listens unconditionally and sees exactly who the other is. That doesn't mean giving up one's own truth or boundaries but rather to be wiling to engage in the process of deep, intuitive communication, where we speak truth directly, we listen with our intuitive antennas and mirror with love, we are heard on many levels and then find ways to fill the deep and truest needs each of us has.

This Mercury Retrograde in Taurus offers us a gift as it is dancing in the sky with Venus and the Sun and flowing with the transformative energy of Pluto. We can stop worrying about the Mercury pop cultural issue of mistaken contracts and broken electronics, and really talk to each other.
