Communication is one of the top issues my patients are looking to work on. The communication usually stems with issues like… “My partner/mother etc. doesn’t understand me, they don’t want to listen and we fight all the time... or we just don’t talk about our feelings.”
Some common communication errors include picking the wrong time to talk, the delivery of your issues, or not communicating at all and leaving our issues in the corner.
Here are some yogic tips on when to talk with your partner so that you can be heard and understood.
1) Find out the sign of your spouse/partner, child, family or friends. Then match their sign to the correct element below.
2) Now practice communicating with yourself following the list.
Water Signs (Cancer (June 21-July 22), Scorpio (Oct. 23-November 21), and Pisces (February 19-March 20)) – they can not be dehydrated, make sure they have water or good tea. Not alcohol or caffeine because they dehydrate. Or they have just taken a bath. or in water. water is around them
Fire Signs (Aries (March 21-April 19), Leo (July 23-August 22), and Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)) – they need to be eating or just ate a food they really like because the digestive juices are fire. It makes them more open to communicate. If you talk to a fire sign when they are hungry they will not hear you. Good food that they like, especially if you make it for them
Earth Signs (Taurus (April 20-May 20), Virgo (August 23-September 22), and Capricorn (December 22-January 19)) – they are moving on the earth. walking, biking, car
Air Signs (Gemini (May 21-June 20), Libra (September 23-October 22), and Aquarius (January 20-February 18) – in the morning. but you have to be very soft and gentle. Not immediately when they wake up, you need to be soft and very subtle.
