BB Spring | Beautiful Blooming Spring
Active listening to renew your relationship with your ageing parents
BB Spring focuses on the 3-in-1 powerful Active elements for a life in bloom:
Listening | Communicating | Relating
The three elements combined activate interactions between parents and adult children.
This is an approach that is an integral part of the
Active Transformation Blueprint
in which we work together to:
- get rid of resentment
- forgive yourself and others
- focus on the things you can control
- have more fulfilled interaction
Here’s what active listening is not...
Have you ever:
- Listened to someone while miles away with your thoughts
and found it difficult to get back into the conversation?
- Misunderstood what has been said and rushed to a conclusion
that led to frustration, anger, or occasional tears?
Check this small print! If you answered YES to any of the questions above you are in the right place!
What is the big thing about active listening?
The practice of active listening has been widely used in all sort of talking therapies and in working environments to increase staff performance.
Yet it's often the case that outside of those areas active listening is not used to listen to ourselves and to our loved ones in meaningful ways.
Because when we sort out personal issues we feel better about ourselves and ready to make the most of the opportunities out there.
Why I am passionate about our ability to turn things around
I believe everyone is entitled to a life of opportunities, filled with a sense of purpose.
Even when difficulties with a relationship have been holding us back.
Because no matter what life throws at us we all have the ability to blossom, regardless of our age and background.
Very much like a little leaf making the most of the warmth of the sun in spring.
As Wood writes in Switch the light on:
"...there is nothing quite like the resilience of the human heart.
Sometimes it lies dormant, but is always poised for awakening."
Therefore, it’s never too late to sort our lives out and make the most of it.
Here's a very simple hint to reward you with appreciation:
- Think about something you really like about a person close to you.
- Put it into words (3-5 max). Say it by making a gentle eye contact.
- Then watch for a sparkle that wasn’t there before.
Here are some words from a client of mine:
"I've worked with Sonia when I thought it was too late to make up with my father.
Together we found simple ways to deal with complex issues
that benefited my mother as well." (- Paul 43)
