THE DAILY GROOVE ~ by Scott Noelle
:: The Art of Uplifting ::
Imagine you're watching a delightful movie on TV,
and you get a phone call from your friend, who is
watching a horror film on a different channel.
You don't mind that your friend likes scary movies,
but you're clear that *you* want to stay focused on
your happy story.
So you start talking about your movie, and after a
while your friend realizes that s/he would rather
be experiencing joy than fear, so s/he changes the
channel to the same frequency you're tuned to.
Now you're both "on the same wavelength"...
literally! That's the art of *uplifting*.
So when you're feeling good, and your child is
upset, stay focused in your place of Well-Being...
AND stay fully Present with your child.
Make peace with the fact that s/he's upset, and
know that s/he'll be feeling good again soon.
Before too long s/he'll *choose* to change
channels from tragedy to comedy. :-)
