Life is too short – Give and Receive the Gift of Listening while you live

Thanks to everyone for the encouragement and for sharing your own insight. Today is difficult. There was a domestic homocide in Calgary yesterday. It was one of Jim’s employees. His wife, two of his three kids and a border in his house died with him.

When something like this happens everybody wonders what they could have done to prevent such a tragedy.  What I notice is that prevention of this kind of event hinges on our abilities as human beings to truly communicate our thoughts, our feelings and our perceptions of the past, present and future.

For me PREVENTION looks like the PULSE GHOST.  Speak Gently, Honestly, Openly, Specifically AND Talk from where you hurt!! Listen with HEART, Hush, Empathize, Attend, Reflect and Trust.  Listen with FULL attention when others talk. Hear what is unsaid. Listen with Head, Heart and Body. Give and receive, with appreciation and gratitude, the gift of listening and speaking daily.

Take care of yourselves and the people in your life. Be courageous and curious, always in all ways.

PULSE as Emergency Response Route

I was in Vancouver and Seattle this weekend.  It was a great trip.  I had never been to Seattle and was pleasantly surprised by the city and all it has to offer.  On the way back after we passed the border I notices signs on the Canadian side that I had not noticed before.  They caught my eye because they were the shape of a delta triangle and they had lines accross them that divided the triangle into 5 horizontal sections.  Except for the colours which were black and yellow it could have been a PULSE Frame image.  Below the symbol was a sign that read “Emergency Response Route”. How appropriate considering that the road sign shows the way to safety and so does the PULSE Frame.  I was surprised by the similar shape and design and even more intrigued by the similar purpose.

The PULSE Frame is a very effective path or route for rescuing relationships and leading parties to a mutually beneficial plan of action.  As parties move through the Frame from Prepare to Uncover, to Learn and Search and Explain, they are guided towards a future that is positive and appreciative, more promising than the future they envisioned before they began down the PULSE path.  Just as those who follow the Emergency Response Route in case of disaster will find safety so too will PULSE parties find a safety for Body, Heart and Head.

Hello world!

This is the beginning of a new world for me … the first day of the rest of my life.  I alwasy considered myself technologically adept but today as I am learning about blogs and webinars, I have discoverd a whole new world. There are those of you well a head of me on this journey.  Thank you for clearing the e-path, marking the e-trail and making it look e-zier for those of us who are following in your e-steps.

I have so much to say.  Marjorie has warned if I strat I must visit and update and answer regularly, three times a week at a minimum.  That seems like an awesome responsiblity to take on when my days and yours are already full. What to give up to ensure that the discipline of blogging inegrates into my life? My first thought is that this become my e-journal. Everyday I journal PULSE thoughts.  If I were to synthesize those into a e-message Monday, Wednesday and Friday, that might work.

This is quite exciting.  Some themes I might want to work with are the Oprah Trek, the 9 PULSE Beaches, the PULSE Prism and PULSE and the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. I hope that all the PULSE Professionals will join in to make this interesting.  Keeping all of you  informed as to our activity and intention has not been easy as life fills our days.

Let’s try again … publish this … and commit to three days a week to keep in touch.
