May’s theme is Gossip dies when it hits wise ears paired with the Cascade breath which highlights the power of the breath to erase self-destructive tendencies.
It can weaken us in ways seen and unseen. One effect of hearing or speaking gossip about yourself or others is stress. Our body goes into fight or flight response and we experience anxiety, fear, unease ~ gossip is designed to do that.
One of the best ways we can stop gossip from hurting us is to remain open-hearted. The open-hearted or surrendered state allows us to receive help. It says to Mother Father God, yes! I receive your wisdom, support, and love. This is essential for creating the best outcome for ourselves and, by extension, our communities and world.
You can cultivate your open-hearted state by placing your hands to your heart and telling yourself, “I love you” when gossip or criticism comes your way. This is the way to develop wise ears. Wise ears listen to the heart first and foremost because the heart is led by love.
As we grow our wise heart ears, we can allow gossip to flow to us and discern if there’s anything in it for us to reflect on. If there is, great, we have just received a gift for our own growth. If there’s not, we can lovingly release the gossip out of our body, mind, and spirit. It is not ours to store, hold on to, or tuck away. It is ours to release.
Here are two more powerful tools for releasing criticism out of our body for your consideration. One is to bow to the person/situation and say, “I take what is mine. I release what belongs to the person/situation.” The second is the Cascade breath which helps erase self-destructive tendencies. Practicing this breath will help you release criticism and bring you “closer to free”.
