True listening is letting go of a need to respond and hearing what wants to be said. Attention, focused on whatever is happening in the moment, connects you to the flow of affirming nature. The Teyuna say to truly hear you have to listen with the ears of the heart.
Being a loving presence. Just intending to be a loving presence eases pain and exudes safety or guardianship. It says I’m here, and you are fully supported. Compassion is embracing acceptance, discerning rather than judging and intending without attaching to position.
