Conscious Communication is not just for couples. It is important for everyone. We are taught how to read and write however, we have not learned the basics of clear communication that expresses not only your thoughts but also the meaning and intention behind the words. It is a skill and an art to cultivate. If you want healthy relationships with family, friends and colleagues, it pays to be a conscious communicator. Conflict and drama lessen. You experience more understanding, sharing and intimacy with those you care about. Constructive communication skills will give you confidence to express yourself clearly and give you an advantage in business or work environment. You will attract friends and have happier long lasting relationships.

Notice Body Language
Pay attention to the listener. Be present with them. If possible, look into their eyes and notice their body language. How are your words being received? What does their body language say? Are they bored? Have they stopped listening? Are they irritated? Do their eyes roll as you speak? Do you sense interest or curiosity about what you are saying? If you are aware, you can adjust your words to help the person understand or you can stop and inquire about what is happening for them.
