Conscious Communication

When we meet someone and start communicating, we slowly start creating a perception in our mind of the individual(s). As we continue to proceed, these meetings and interactions may vary and the amount of communication can either increase or decrease, depends on the nature of a relationship that develops. Usually, in a Social setting, it is about formal niceties.

If the relationship continues to grow we call it ‘friendship’. From this point, the communication becomes more casual, without the fences and boundaries, taken down as they feel there is a sense of trust. Communication of the world minimises and revolves around more personal exchanges and anecdotes. To know each other’s ‘REAL YOU’ by way of various details about each other’s life (past and present), daily updates can strengthen the foundation of trust further; which is important for any relationship to continue.

The mental perception that continues to be painted now has more features and aspects of the individual’s characteristics based on the narratives. A prominent or distinct imagery of an individual depends on how the communication is processed and analysed, with the level of consciousness and critical thinking. Also, when we start trusting a person and are comfortable we may sometimes become casual in the continuous perception building process. Some behavioural patterns suit only the concerned individuals and find a common platform to socialise and also invite like-minded people to join.

Thus, the area of communication expands and more information and anecdotes start rushing in. There is much more information to be processed and complex decisions to be taken to form perceptions, which require the mind to analyse faster and involve more critical thinking. The group interactions continue and at a stage, all perceptions in the mind seem to stand right in front of you, and you fail to identify each of them individually.

As interactions and relationships grow, the mind processes the characteristics in a cohesive manner, instead of doing so for each individual. The bonhomie continues to grow and even differences are settled amicably. Now, in the entire process, our individuality starts to pick up the group’s characteristics, naturally so, as we spend time together and through the interactions subliminally picking up behavioural traits which we were unaware of or never had. Fair enough, we learn from each other and that is how we grow as an individual. In this growth, do we lose part of our innate behaviour too? Maybe yes!

Now, everyone has perceptions that are projected simultaneously on the canvas of group meetings and socialisations. We subconsciously start ‘Mirroring’ behaviour (they include speech patterns, gestures, attitude, and other non-verbal signals). So, does all the perceptions and images we have in the mind are juxtaposed, or get more blurry?Β  We may not be able to identify the perception(s) so intricately anymore, as we are comfortable in the relationship.

At a subconscious level, we store data about an individual’s characteristic and behavioural patterns. One to one- when we ask for a favour or wish to convince about something, we employ the type of narrative that sounds convincing to the individual. So, the individual perception once formed and the type of communication exchanged after initial introduction is registered. Friends, family, and society, we all identify with mass consciousness, where we do certain things and communicate in a more acceptable way, as sanctioned by social norms.

Now, at the end of this article let me discuss those people who have many names- mystics, sadhus, enlightened ones, priests, seers, philosophers, fakir, monk, holy men, etc. It won’t be a justice to mention them only. They are individuals who neither belong to a group nor are narcissistically individualistic. They speak the knowledge of the ‘Omnipresent’. Such narratives can be heard by them as they view the world in entirety; without the restraints of beliefs, religion, caste, creed, race, social standing etc. They are passionate to unify the world based on the true feeling of humanity and help propagate the immense knowledge that this Universe holds. Their perceptions do not lack clarity and communicate with deep consciousness with any soul.

Their words may sound harsh and dismissive as they are pure and defy the acceptable weak social communications. Behind the harshness is the love of eternity and for the souls of all life that exist in the ecosystem. So, before commenting on an enlightened individual’s narrative or hurling insinuations at them, remember, they are the one who will show the truth and take existence to next level of consciousness. Stay Blessed!

Keep an open mind and realise the dangerous outcome of insufficient information and faulty perceptions.~ Amitav

  1. I enjoyed this greatly. I appreciate how you noted that those who are enlightened are “individuals who neither belong to a group nor are narcissistically individualistic”, because too often, folks feel the NEED to identify or belong in a group, organization, etc., and I just don’t feel that that is something that is actually natural or sheer enough for us to connect or remain connected to our higher selves.

    1. Thank you so much. Always a pleasure to read different thoughts which add more to an article. Humans are yet to comprehend the immensity of individual capabilities and the depth of life. Existence is increasingly moving towards conformity and institutionalising every thought and ideas. It becomes important to stay connected to the Self and communicate with everyone with conscious and meaningful way. Being detached from the unnecessary and identifying coercive nature which alters the subliminal thought process will enhance life.

    1. Thank you so much, Maureen. Just my comprehension of life and the nature of communication we have. Maybe I go a little deeper with the analysis of them all. πŸ™‚ Still, there is so much to understand and know, this Universe is an enigma.

    1. Communication occurs at multiple levels. If we consider, at a micro level, within us-brain sending and receiving signals from various parts of the body, communicating the proper functioning of the body and being. Also, making us aware of our surroundings and forging relationships. Then at a macro level, communication with the unseen, the nature we can see but the signals they communicate with, we can comprehend when we listen with consciousness.
      The fear of being over and under exposing oneself occurs when one feels a dichotomy. Even if we remain silent, we convey a lot which we may not realize(through body language and silent behavioral aspects). We are under the impression we can hide certain things, yes, we can from one another because we communicate at the same frequency. But nature, cosmic consciousness and enlightened minds can comprehend the hidden, that is when the language of silence comes into play.

      1. I have always been able to “read” people. I feel it’s on another plain of consciousness. I have been called an empath- but it takes a lot from me at times. I tend to draw people and like a sponge I absorb emotions from them. It can be a very hard thing and often makes me feel connected to them at a different level then they are to me.

      2. I can relate to that. It is your aura and vibes that attract people towards you and they tend to narrate and share their concerns with you and you absorb the same in the process. Empathy can draw you in into another individual’s life. Not necessarily a negative thing because you can help someone heal, but in the process you also transfer/direct lot of positive energy from yourself which can be daunting at times. Sure, connection and communication is also transfer of energy and certain situations take more energy away from you than you can imagine.

      3. Yes, that is very much the case! I have times I have to distance myself just to “come up for air!” And then I also find that when I’m in need, it can be hard to find someone who is there for me, like I am for so many. Thanks for listening and understanding. I find you are insightful!

      4. People who show empathy almost always would rarely find another individual who feels with the same intensity or can communicate with you at a depth you are in. By depth I mean, of feelings. It can be frustrating. Since you feel more passionately and from the core of your soul, you find it difficult to find someone who shares the same type of frequency. But let me tell you, what you have is unique, can have its downside, but on the positive side you are more empowered and aware of your feelings and can recuperate from a situation through self-healing. But if you look around and you may be destined to find someone to communicate with at a similar frequency of empathy.
        Always a pleasure talking to you. I am listening. πŸ™‚

      5. Very frustrating at times, yes, and painful. I haven’t learned how not to go “all in” as it were. So, some times I feel used up and tossed away. I have love, but equally others can hurt me. So confusing sometimes… Blogging has been a great therapy for release. Although, leaving me vulnerable- two edged sword I guess. But, then I would not have opportunity to connect with souls such as you. ❀

      6. If I may, with your permission, I know it is not always a advice can do wonders (sometimes they can sound outright condescending and preachy) πŸ™‚ but let me give you one advice anyways. The empathy you have and that you care is a blessing and it is your good karma to help people during their times of need. The fact that they reach out to you says a lot about you kind nature and the love you have for people around you. Be you and proud of it, as such souls are rare and the world needs more people with empathy. Take satisfaction from the fact that you can help and alleviate pain of others. You will be exasperated and frustrated I know when you need support, but also realize that Divine power has given the ability to deal with your feelings and also others, which can reside in a benevolent heart. That is you. Never take it as a negative experience, tough times will be there but you can overcome challenges, always. Have faith! ❀

      7. Not condescending whatsoever! And thank you so very much for this- I truly believe it is what I needed to hear. And faith certainly has been the only reason I still stand some days, I fully agree in its power! Thank you again so much for encouraging and working me through the feelings I have today. Your truly a God send ❀

  2. I really enjoyed this post, communication and how people and groups interact fascinates me, it has also been a big part of my work. As I was reading through it I was thinking what about those who just ‘know’ and then I found it in your last paragraph, interesting how on just getting to know you through your posts I asked this question, believing it would be important.
    I think that intuition is overlooked by many, what we intuitively know about a person before any words are spoken. I think intuition serves us well when we listen to it, many times I have pushed it aside only to find later I should have listened.

    1. Thank you so much, Liza. Glad, you liked this post. πŸ™‚

      Communication is a fascinating topic. We engage in communication to convey and receive messages and also to form relationships. Society evolves through various communication and brings us together and also sets us apart.

      Verbal and visual communication overpowers the other types of communication. As you mentioned, intuition can be a decisive factor as it conveys many subtle facts which we overlook. Telepathy as a means of communication is also not often discussed. I guess the more we practice ‘listening’ we enhance our senses to communicate more effectively. We do not listen with concentration as our mind is dealing with various types of inputs from the surrounding. Nature and Universe are continuously communicating which we rarely pick up unless we live among nature for a long time.

      1. I’m spending a lot of time looking at how nature and the universe communicate at the moment and fascinated by the patterns I’m finding. I think we can learn a lot from the patterns of nature, particularly around transformation and continuance. To listen we have to ignore the ears, which after all are just holes and listen and watch with our whole being. We learn more engaging with all of our senses including our intuitiveness and innate understanding.

      2. Well stated, Liza. We trust the ears too much and almost dependent or rather over dependent on them. We do not allow other messages to come to us. I have noticed, with the advent of this so called smart technology, which is no doubt keeping us connected, is diminishing our ability to sense and perceive ourselves and also the true characteristic of our surroundings. I feel there is more of a programmed approach and a learned response to situations, almost feels unnatural to me. Very true, as you say engaging the senses is important. Silence can help rearrange our system and allow us to communicate with the eternal knowledge.

      3. Yes technology is interesting and useful as in it informs us, as in information is quick to access. But we absorb the information quickly too, we don’t learn by feeling. Silence, like nature is full of lessons that provide understanding, if we can only tap into that eternal source.

      4. It is time to understand and differentiate between information and misinformation. Lot of false propaganda is being percolated through various mediums and I feel from the various conversations in Social media and other forums, misinformation is doing a good job till now. Be it any topic- health, politics, knowledge in general there is lot of confusion. I read the conversations and debates and also analyse the extent of damage they cause. I hope people will become more conscious, I pray.

      5. Yes, very true, as you know I’ve given up reading a lot of it for the same reason. I do like to search for some things, this morning when looking at nature sites, I found out the daisy flower has an odd number of petals! I think you hit the nail on the head when you say we need to differentiate between what is real and not, that is up to us. Always good discussing these things with you Amitav, another positive for social media πŸ™‚

      6. Nature and Universe has it own symmetry. There is a pattern in every atom and particles and life that we know of. They have synergy and the ecosystem communicates in some language we may not have understood yet.
        Really, it is through social media we connected and here we are having this wonderful communication. πŸ™‚

      7. Indeed, so we have to agree there are positives 😊
        To understand the symmetry of nature would bring us closer to understanding all there is to know, one day maybe but I think it might be a long way off. I find both the simplicity and complexity of nature beautiful, to sit with or in nature is a communication in itself. Interesting, cut flowers at home last longer when I talk to them!
