For this next week get fanatical about using Completion Loops. Make ZERO Roadblocks.
Someone tells you, "Good morning," and your response is, "You are telling me that you think this is a good morning." Or, "You are asking me if I think it is a good morning."
When they say, "Yes," then in your mind you hear, "Bing!" You have successfully completed the communication! They feel heard. The need for them to say this to you is now gone forever. You can both move on to the next communication impulse.
This Experiment is not about using a Completion Loop once per say. It is about moving into the Thoughtmap Of Communication and making Completion Loops the way you dance with people in your life.
Learn to use Completion Loops skillfully. If people around you experience a Completion Loop and start making comments like, "Is there an echo in here?" or, "Dad, have you turned into a parrot?" this is feedback for you. They are saying that you lack finesse, timing, invisibility, and skillful means. It means you need to keep practicing Completion Loops, but differently.
Say, "Thanks for the feedback. Please go on," and stay calmly connected with them. Listen to each thing they say, making the Completion Loops silently in your mind. Now and then at the 'right moment', make a Completion Loop out loud.
Develop your sense about what 'right moments' are. Well-delivered Completion Loops are miraculously healing.
Most people do not know about Completion Loops, so you cannot expect others to make Completion Loops with you. However, you can pay attention to those times you wish for a Completion Loop from the other person. Then you can say, "Would you please repeat back what I said so I know that you heard me?"
