When i read the article I realized that my listening is growing in these stages, that I had never really analyzed the way this has been articulated in such a spectacular way here. Over the recent past I believe that with Spiritual growth and turning within and seeing the splendor of the spirit within, I have moved on to the 3rd stage of listening where my 11 year old daughter is concerned. I have been looking at myself more as a spiritual partner to her which has enabled me to switch to this 3rd level of listening and connecting with her at a deeper level.
The 4th level of listening is a tremendous shift in energy and consciousness and I recently had the opportunity to practice this in being a vessel of consciousness to close friends of ours going through a very difficult time. I am beginning to see this shift and will continue on this path as it brings so much joy and peace within that is hard to explain in words sometimes. I am so grateful for this sacred space and know we are all once consciousness bound by this invisible source that speaks from within the depths of our soul, the 4th dimension.
