The ability to be a good listener is a powerful skill to possess. Who doesn’t love to sit and chat with someone who is an attentive listener?
I was fortunate to receive a special blessing from a friend, in the form of a suggestion, that I develop better listening skills to enhance my management skills at work.
I took their suggestion to heart, and began researching, and practicing techniques to become a better listener. But, to my amazement, it was the spirit of a mouse that helped me the most! This tiny animal has a keen sense of awareness and the ability to see the big picture.
As strange as this may sound, that little mouse helped me develop better management skills. Even the quality of my personal relationships improved!
One day, not long after I had embraced the spirit of a mouse, I received a message that reaffirmed this. As I walked across the street from my office to have lunch, parked on the corner, plain as day, was a car with the word MOUSE on its license plate.
I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! But then I realized, this was not merely a coincidence, but a confirmation I was on the right path.
Greater focus to listening from my heart, has led me to greater awareness of living in the present moment, also known as mindfulness.
The medicine of the Mouse will help you to:
- See something you would have otherwise missed.
- Pay attention to what’s going on around you.
- Scrutinize your life and eliminate what’s no longer essential.
- Stay connected to the present moment.
- See the bigger picture than what is staring you in the face.
