One of the most moving and deeply connecting elements from the movie Avatar is when the Navi’ share the greeting ‘I see you’ each time they approach each other. If you remember from the movie, the deeper meaning of this simple phrase is that ‘I see into you’ as if you are peering into their very soul. For me this is a powerful image.
Too often in our busy lives, we simply see through others as opposed to being truly present. When we tell someone that ‘I heard you’ does it truly mean they were heard at a fully present level or simply that we got the words? The greatest gift we can give another is to be fully present and connected to them. To really see someone means there is a connection that knows no time or distraction. Yet in our daily lives, we often listen but do not hear. We can be so caught up in our own stuff that the words pass through us untouched.
How often do we experience the deeper sense of what someone says and what they are feeling or expressing in that moment? When someone affects us by what they say it is because we have allowed them to enter our sacred space. To be fully present requires not only our undivided attention, but our willingness to be vulnerable and available to them at the same time. When we are heard at that level, the bond that is created in that moment can fill us with a sense of divine value that no words can express.
To see into another or to be seen in that way is a heart-level experience. It means there is value and respect for the dignity and sacredness of the person. We are called to this level of connection regardless of the situation. It can be as simple as a routine exchange or as deep as a personal sharing. The energy that exists in that connection is creative and supportive. Instead of two people engaged in an exchange of words, it becomes a moment of mutual respect and reverence. We are honoring the sacred value of the other and in doing so, we bring light and energy into the space.
We all want to feel valued for not only what we say, but who we are. It is the deepest and most profound feeling to experience being seen and to share that be seeing others. So next time someone comes to you and wishes to be seen, remember the creative power you hold in your hands. Allow others to be truly seen and you will be seen in return.
I believe in the transformative power of human connection to elevate joy, restore balance, and support inner healing as you seek your highest purpose. My purpose in life is to be a guide, to share the wisdom of the Universe I’ve been gifted with, and to see others succeed. Nothing brings me greater joy than to see others step into their purpose in a vibrant and highly energetic way.
