Listen. We meet to gather information, ask questions, and start working.
Listen. Coaches listen to what you say, they also listen to the Holy Spirit and encourage you to do the same. The desire for both parties must be for the Holy Spirit to use this relationship to move, motivate and mobilize life change.
Listen. Our everyday, conversational listening typically involves half-listening. I may be multi- tasking, or I may be trying to listen to you while I also prepare what I want to say next. When I am facilitating or witnessing a woman’s work, I can give the gift of listening with singular attention. I can help focus my own mind by preparing to repeat back for my sister her own, exact words. I can sharpen both my understanding and hers by offering her a simple, summarizing paraphrase or asking a clarifying question. She then has the opportunity to correct any misunderstanding on my part or to sharpen the way she is expressing what is true for her. Accept: Acceptance means choosing to suspend our judgments. I may experience feelings or register judging thoughts as I listen to my sister’s story, but I am intentional about not revealing those judgments whether in words, body language, or actions. In receiving my sister’s story without reacting – either positively or negatively – I help to create space in which my sister can experience her own judgments and explore them as she listens to the Holy Spirit. Whatever judgments may arise for me are an invitation for me to engage in my own healing work. Model: While I do not give a woman advice or attempt to fix or rescue her, I can support her growth by modelling healthy or healing behaviors. For example, as I live by the agreement of honesty to the best of my ability, even to the extent of sharing painful truths, I can inspire my sisters to risk deep honesty. I can also be willing to walk alongside a sister in her choice to do difficult work. Becoming vulnerable by walking through our fear or expressing our anger or naming our shame is often made possible when we know we are not walking alone. One woman’s courage in risking these actions can establish the safety of the container for another woman. Or, by mirroring a woman’s vulnerable action (walking with her through her fear; voicing her anger in tandem; looking her in the eye as she voices her shame, e.g.) I can bolster my sister’s courage.
Listen for what’s being said and why it’s being said the words and the feeling. Listen for the need behind the statements or the resistance.
Listen. Allow your friend to talk about what happened and control the direction of the conversation. Do not ask a lot of questions or focus on the attack itself, but rather on how he or she is handling the trauma. LISTEN WITHOUT GIVING ADVICE OR TRYING TO “FIX” THINGS When we care for someone, we often try to give advice, solve their problems or fix things for them. While it comes from a place of caring, our instinct to try to problem-solve or give advice can sometimes leave a survivor feeling as though their emotions are being dismissed. Sometimes, the issues a survivor is having will not feel fixable to them or to you, and it’s much more helpful to just be there to listen to whatever a survivor wants to share with you.
