” Feeling truly heard by another person is deeply satisfying, necessary, and sometimes feels like a treat more than a regular occurrence.” Nina K. Sidell, “Parenting for Life”

Do you feel heard when you talk and share with others? Are you a good listener? How often do you feel truly listened to with your friends, family and colleagues? What acknowledgements are demonstrated to you when you feel that you are being heard? After all, communication is designed for both people in a discourse to feel seen, heard, and understood as a basic psychological human need. When we forget that everyone has something to say, we are more present and truly hearing both sides. Listening well and feeling heard assist in resolving conflict and bring people together. Even if those ‘agree to disagree’, or have no consensus, there is always room for a healthy discussion.

Here are some Active Listening Tips to practice and ask of others:

The Listener:

  1. Relax enough to be available to hear someone else and respect their point of view.
  2. Be present when listening by putting own agenda and reactions aside.
  3. Take turns to confirm what was said.
  4. Ask if what you heard is what the speaker said (versus interpretation).
  5. The listener responds to what the speaker says instead of sharing, comparing, or reacting.
  6. The listener talks after the speaker does in a shared dialogue.
  7. Respond rather than react.
  8. Thank the speaker for sharing.

The Speaker:

  1.  Set aside a good time to talk for both parties where there are no distractions.
  2. Be clear and direct and stay on topic.
  3. Make “I” Statements when expressing feelings or opinions to make the sent message easier to digest.
  4. The purpose of sharing is for the speaker is to be heard clearly.
  5. Blame, shame, name-calling, yelling and insults are not permitted when sharing.
  6. Learn how to self-correct in the moment if need be.
  7. Know that the goal is to be heard and not necessarily to be agreed with.
  8. Thank the listener for listening.

From Lack to Love

“The way we love and honor ourselves is reflected in our relationships with others.” Nina Sidell, M.A.

In my work with clients, groups, and audiences, and in my own life I recognize the importance and value of the human heart, relationships, and core self-worth.

For many people, their life path is fraught with pain and loss. They may not have had a functional family life complete with positive role modeling, adequate nurturing and parental care. Their feelings of worth, value, and empowerment may be undiscovered or undeveloped due to early and ongoing loss and unmet needs. For some, feeling unfulfilled, disconnected, or brokenhearted is a reality of everyday life. Connecting with themselves and other people can be a challenging task; finding inner and outer love can feel treacherous.

Life is a series of opportunities to love, learn, and grow. Depending on one’s life story and the desire to improve the quality of their life, the path to greater self-love and outer love is always present.

Once acceptance is achieved, one can move beyond pain and loss and embrace greater love internally and externally. Here are some ways to achieve this:

  • “Doing the work” is the right and responsibility of each person.
  • Using introspection, support, professional help, and healthy outlets, continue to explore personal truth.
  • Know that, “The only way out is through” is a process when coming from lack and moving toward love.
  • Acknowledge feelings and unmet needs while learning to re-parent the self to aid healing.
  • Finding strength in one’s truth helps the individual evolve, re-write the script, and become an example to others.
  • Becoming an example means creating new and better ways to live moving forward.
  • The act of developing the self is the precursor to living an empowered life.
  • Walk life’s path with self-compassion, courage, and commitment to living a life full of love, starting from the inside out.

“Living with hope and peace (or not) are choices we all make and then live our lives accordingly.” Nina Sidell, M.A.

Life is both miraculous and terrifying, since so much is new and unexpected and other realities include responding to challenging patterns. Miraculous inventions and terrifying realities seem prevalent in this day and age. I believe that one way to deal with so much is to simply work toward inner and outer peace.  Continue Reading…

See some reviews:

“I really enjoyed Nina’s talk on the importance of Human Connection at the Awaken Our Relationships event.

Thank you, Nina!” Greg Campisi, Founder and President of AWAKEN Center for Human Evolution.

Are you ready to adapt to crisp days and chilly nights? Are you making room for new growth and transformation in your life? With curiosity and grace, welcome each season, person, and insight into your view.

Think about it, where do you spend most of your emotional energy most days? Are you focused on getting things done, feeling upset, overwhelmed, sad, frustrated, frightened, or angry? Do you practice  mindfulness to assist you in staying present and do you have healthy coping skills, emotional and physical outlets to help you cope? To become mindful with the intention of growth and peace is to fall in love with life, and to fall in love with your own life.

Here are some tips for Falling in Love with Your Life!

  • Pay attention to your thoughts and emotional focus, day-to-day and week-to-week, etc.
  • Observe your coping skills, (lack of) tools, and support.
  • Notice how you spend your time, day-to-day and week-to-week, etc.
  • Evaluate if you have fun and healthy outlets in your life that excite and enthuse you.
  • Acknowledge if the quality of your relationships reflect what makes you happiest with others.
  • Ask yourself the question, “Are you in love with your life?”
  • Then follow-up with two more questions, “If not, what would make this happen? What do you have to do to make it so?”
  • Forgive yourself and others who do not know how to embrace loving your own life.
  • Where does your personal self-care fall in the continuum of your life?
  • Does your life reflect your values and provide you with happiness you seek? Choose wisely for yourself…it’s your Life!

In these stressful times, feeling connected to our lives and a sense of purpose, connection, and joy is essential. We feel it and our children feel it. It’s time to evolve the status quo.
