Sensitive Awareness: Key To Changing Habitual Patterns Of Interaction

Updated: Sep 6, 2023

If you feel stuck and in the same old patterns of pain, recurring situations or emotional reactions that never seem to improve your relationship–or you are just ready for faster positive change- this episode is for you.

One of the hardest things for so many people is stopping patterns of interaction that hurt their relationship (like reacting super strongly, or being snippy with your partner) and starting ones that help! Even if you know WHAT to do differently, you may find you can’t quite DO it in the heat of the moment. This is simply because you haven't fully developed your power of what I call Sensitive Awareness. This simple powerful skill is the key to being able to change things that feel hard to change! And luckily you can easily learn to develop it starting with this episode. Today we dive into what Sensitive Awareness (SA) is, why it is foundational to making any real change in your relationship and life, and the power you gain access to in your marriage and your emotional realm (including emotional contagion –like I promised last week!) when you slow down enough to use it on purpose. Then you will learn two specific ways to put SA into practice in order to put an end to painful patterns and develop new ones that generate connection and supportiveness–all illustrated with personal and client examples. You’ll also learn what to look out for in terms of the obstacles that may make SA harder to do. The power of Sensitive awareness is huge, so listen in to this important episode!
