Graciella speaks. I channel her words, wisdom, and sentiment. –Theresa
Graciella asks us whether it is time to put our cards on the table. She asks us to reflect upon areas of our lives that may be distressing that need to be addressed. A potentially conflictual situation is not something most of us would like to explore especially if, on the face of it, all seems calm.
The image shows a woman sitting in front of the cards, plainly seen. There is someone on the other side who sits across from her. We don’t know who that person is. We see hands and that is about it. We don’t know, in this situation, which is the one with the query. It may be quite possible that the one we believe is the one seeking to explore a situation is the other.
In other words, there is more than one experience, strength, and hope at play here. There must be equal time given to each. Both may ask questions, provide insights, and solutions that may add to the enrichment of the resolution of a problem.
If I ask someone to hear my words, do I allow them to speak? Or do I only want my viewpoint to be aired. Do I listen while planning my next sentence? Am I truly listening to what I hear?
Sitting at the table with another, I place my cards on the table. I am heard. Will I extend the courtesy and listen too? That may be my challenge for today.
I will try to remain open and willing to hear you as you listen to me.
In the rosy light of love,
Graciella and Theresa
