Does She Seem At Peace Or Lost In Fear As She Births? Are Our Words Lost In ‘Translation’?

Nothing we way say is ever ‘lost in communication’, but it is often ‘lost in translation’, even when we are speaking the same language. 

It’s probably true to say that everything we say has intention, wether conscious or unconscious, our words and the behaviours have purpose. 

Most of the time we are trundling along on ‘automatic pilot’, oblivious to how our words are being ‘translated’ into another persons ‘meaning making’.

‘The meaning of our communication, is ‘in’ the response it gets from the one hearing it’. 
  

For example: 

if I am ‘meaning’ to communicate to a woman in the early phases of the birthing process PEACE, and I sense in her response FEAR, something has been ‘lost in translation’. 
  

There could be many reasons why she is still afraid for sure, but the first place I look is towards my own use of words and tone of voice.
