Blocking happens when someone refuses to engage in finding a life-giving connection or two that can be unearthed or expanded with another person.
I have an old friend who talks about being open to healing possibilities. He has taught his family to open their hands from a closed position as a physical demonstration of a spiritual action.
If I am open to you and you are open to me, at least an inch, to see if any healing can occur, something good may happen. But if, when we are called together, we sit examining one another rather than risking anything of ourselves, we will block life-giving connections from forming.
I find life-giving connections when I work as a member of a team. That is my bottom line. So I am choosing to remain in relationship with those with whom I feel respected, not punished.
How about you? How do you recognize a healthy environment for your services? Photo credit: Molly Kunselman
