I think listening is a gift whether it is listening to others or to yourself. When you listen you learn things!
Listening, especially to what your body is telling you, is very important, I think. If you become still and really listen you will get the signals. And paying attention to others by listening and observing their body language will tell you a lot about them.
There are lots of people out there who don’t listen to themselves or to others. Are you one of those people?
