ॐOracular Mantra—free your mind, and the rest will follow…

“Perceptive people are always more successful in life and in work,” says Loren Miner, COO of the recruitment firm Decision Toolbox. “Top performers aren’t always the smartest people; they’re the ones who connect with others and have a higher EQ [emotional quotient].”

Fastcompany.com writer Stephanie Vozza quotes Loren Miner in that “people send signals about their thoughts all the time… but it can take practice to tune in—when the messages you receive say that the person isn’t on the same page, these are clues that are telling you to step back and redirect—it’s time to change the conversation or change your approach.”

Vozza writes that “Loren says there are five ways you can read someone’s mind—or at least take an educated guess—and build better relationships.”

The five essential hints are to start with generational differences; recognize hot buttons; consider personalities; look for nonverbal communication; and be a good listener.

❝Being different is a revolving door in your life where secure people enter and insecure exit.❞
——Shannon L. Alder

It appears as though this list offers all of the discerning details that are currently triggering and troubling much of the collective these days… no wonder there’s such a disconnect.

You may be expecting others to know what you want or need, to read your mind, or to allow you your authenticity without question, without even communicating to others what your authenticity associates with—and yet none of these expectations is realistic, healthy, or rational… especially if you’re struggling to honestly understand any oppositional forces delaying or contorting your efforts or ideals.

❝Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.❞
——Carl Gustav Jung

Do you fully understand who it is you’re dealing with when you contrive your opinions?—do you really do your research?—are you accurately informed on your own arguments?

Are you listening?—are you really listening to all sides of an issue?—are you thinking beyond the issue in and of itself?—are you considering the essence or stance of the issue as itself, without your feelings or opinions being considered?

Do you seek only the differences?—or are you seeking the similarities within the differences despite how skinny they may be?

Are you holding space for respect toward an/Other’s viewpoints or ideals?—do you understand why it is they prioritize what they hold as sacred?—do you willingly plunge yourself into the depths of the context of their plight from their personal point of perspective?
