Ahh, wisdom. It is a hard-won attribute. People with true wisdom have been through a lot to gain that wisdom. There is a plus that you GET to learn from these beings instead of reinventing the wheel yourself if you so choose.
I’m hoping you chose to learn from others including me instead of feeling you have to do it all yourself. That being said, I want to share both some of my mistakes and some of my intuitions if you are ready for that yes?
Trusting people to be who I saw they were and expecting them to live up to that.
People will be who they are at the level they are even if you see the “more.” Sometimes they are ready for a leap; other times not. How to not be attached to them living up to your vision for them—that is the lesson.
Believing that what people tell you is true because you tell the truth or as much of the truth as you know at any given time (i.e., I have a good diet without exploring what that means and so much more).
Asking deeper questions to truly decipher what is what.
Watching body language or voice tones if not in person.
Trusting what someone is telling you even though your intuition is telling you differently.
You fool me once, shame on you. You fool me twice, shame on me. Right. Trust your intuition and be fearless about asking again and asking for more answers since it is your time, money, love you are inventing.
Wishing I could be in charge of anyone other than me.
God is that—a hard one. Don’t we want to fix everyone else first? Ha! It’s all about you, you, you—work on you, play with you, dance with you.
These are just a few of the things I have learned. And these are just the realm of lessons about interactions with clients, students, other beings you love.
Love and blessings to you.
