Create Positive Exchange from your Difficult Interactions
 
Meditate-ManHeartHigh-Five
 
Is there an elephant in the room sometimes, and you walk away feeling frustrated or defeated? Perhaps a recent request or conversation did not end with the conclusion you hoped for, or there is simply a relationship with challenges requiring more energy in your day. The best argument you go in with is not the only tool you require, as you also require relational agility. Valcour provides a strategy to overcome this battle and build your agility, so you may have more energy in your day and come out more often satisfied after your exchanges.
 
10-minute meditation to improve your relational agility:
      
1) Begin with yourself in a quiet space where you can concentrate and say these items to yourself internally:
 
May I be safe, may I be happy, may I be healthy, may I be free from suffering.
 
2) Think of someone who has cared deeply for you, such as a close friend, and say these things internally:
 
May you be safe, may you be happy, may you be healthy, and may you be free from suffering.
 
3) Now think of someone you have difficult interactions with:
 
Note what comes up first. Are there strong emotions or negative thoughts? If so, begin with some bridges:
 
You have hopes and dreams, just as I have.
You have experienced suffering, just as I have.
You have fears and anxieties, just as I have.
You wish to be happy, just as I do.
 
Now, move on to this:
 
May you be safe, may you be happy, may you be healthy, and may you be free from suffering.
 
Close your meditation and continue with your day, carrying the positive intentions you created, no longer carrying that extra weight.

May you be happier and healthier with each passing day, friends!
