We really are mirrors for each other. We can make each other feel comfortable or uncomfortable.
I was in a shop today designing some business-cards and the chap helping me out had quite a pronounced nervousness which caused him not to be able to really look at me in the eyes. There was probably some kind of minor tic there as well.
I began to notice this was making me feel a degree of awkwardness. I then cleared the feeling of awkwardness within me, dropped the judgment/internal reporting that had clearly been causing the feeling of awkwardness, became calm again.
And then I noticed all his nervousness had left him, and he was able to engage me eye to eye.
Talk about all being connected 🙂
