There is a difference between hearing and listening - just as there is a difference between reading and comprehension. Listening involves FOCUS.
Though most people at least attempt to multitask, much of what is said is not retained.
The brain hears what it needs to hear based on what it is processing at a given moment - emotionally, mentally and physically. This is the reason I record my readings for clients who come here and encourage others to do so at home. Generally you remember about 30% of what is said in a reading, those memories fading or becoming subject to influences in a client's life.
We are learning about the importance of balancing the chemistry of the brain each day which isn't easy in this crazy busy world of constant decision making - whether we chose to make change or it is thrust upon us.
How do we cope? We shut out the chatter of others by practicing techniques that balance brain chemistry - Yoga, Meditation, Visualization, and the like. Sometimes a soul simple requires peace and quiet to go within and process decisions without chatter from another. In selective hearing - they hear only their voice or that which guides from higher frequency, no matter what is going on around them in physical reality.
Has a partner ever said to you, "You don't listen! You never listen!"
Maybe you didn't listen because your thoughts were elsewhere or you simple didn't understand what was being said.
Relationships are not easy. This is where selective hearing really kicks in. There are the things we must address now and that which our partner wants us to hear and deal with simultaneously. This goes to feeling ignored, good old control issues, and tuning the other person out. It's why some of us realize we don't function well in a serious relationship as they have too many boundaries.
Do you wear headphones to tune your partner out?
Though they say we become more telepathic with our partners as time goes by, taking selective hearing to the next level, one has to listen physically and give a constructive opinion.
Best suggestion - sit down with your partner, discuss what is realistic and try to work things out. Don't keep secrets because if you do, the energy of the relationship will fade and end in these times where the universe seeks/creates balance in all things. Living with secrets is just as bad as hearing but not listening to truth.
You want what you want for your emotional well being as this is consciousness hologram in which you are projected illusion - a soul who came here to study the full gamut of emotions. Did you not HEAR me SAY and blog that over and over again? ... Nag ... nag ... nag!
We engage in selective hearing all the time. As you read this you are tuning out the noises around you. ... Listen to them now ... Again it goes to FOCUS. Consciousness at the physical level remains limited until we leave.
Why do some people lose their hearing partially or totally? They simply don't want to listen and react anymore.
We hear what we want to hear.
It all goes back to the same old ... same old ...
DO YOU HEAR ME NOW?
Ellie asking Z ... who is listening ...
"How many more blogs will I write until this is over?"
Ellie listening to Z ...
"Not many more."
Z listening to Ellie ...
"I hear you ... over and out!"
"Hello. Can You Hear Me Now?" Wired - August 15, 2011
Thomas Edison (February 11, 1847 - October 18, 1931) suggests using the word hello as a telephone greeting. The idea catches on. Edison invented a lot of things, but he didn't invent the telephone. The brass ring for that one goes to Alexander Graham Bell (born less than a month after Edison) -- March 3, 1847 - August 2, 1922) -- although Elisha Gray filed his patent for a similar device the same day.
A man traveling by plane was in urgent need of a restroom facility. But each time he tried, it was occupied. The flight attendant, aware of his predicament, suggested he use the attendant's ladies room, but cautioned him not to press any of the buttons.
There next to the paper roll were four buttons marked: WW WA PP ATR.
Making the mistake soooo many men make of not listening to a woman, he disregarded what she said when his curiosity got the best of him.
He carefully pressed the WW button and immediately a gentle flush of Warm Water sprayed on his bare bottom. He thought "Wow" these gals really have it nice!!
So a little more boldly he pressed the WA button and body temperature Warm Air blew across his wet bottom and dried it comfortably.
"Aha" he thought, "No wonder these women take so long in the bathroom with these kinds of services!"
So he pushed the next button PP with anticipation. A soft disposable Powder Puff swung below him and dusted his bottom lightly with talc.
"Man, this is great," he thought as he reached out for the ATR button.
He awoke in the hospital, as the morphine drip was just wearing off...confused he buzzed the nurse to find out what happened.
He explained the last thing he remembered was intense pain in the ladies room on the plane.
The nurse explained, "Yes, you must have been having a great time until you pushed the Automatic Tampon Removal button."
