Feelings, sharing them, is the start of level five communication.

I have feelings and want to share ........................
Did level five with the group .............
Had five to start with, humans that is.
Then it grew in number as we went through the level five from bottom to top.
It is really tough on the leader and also the members when a climate of self revelation is kicking in and then comes the invasion of others who are synchronized with the feelings of others.

I always go on about the level five stuff. If you are new to it all it is about the five levels of communication. 
I have Blob drawings so people can say where they are and stuff.
I will click through them again:-
Please start reading from level one and climb up NOW

level five;- total openness
level four;- feelings
level three;- opinions
level two;- facts
level one;- cliché

the idea is to stretch ourselves to build relationships by being authentic in communication.
If we stay down the bottom end, communication and life itself - is boring. ( of course we are all at the facts and opinions level sometimes - but to stay there bbbbrrrrrrrrr so cold)

Feelings, sharing them, is the start of level five communication.
I believe we get more and give more in that very place.

We, the group, walked through the levels from top to bottom and everyone shared about themselves;-
a cliché about me and my communication
a fact about myself
an opinion I hold about myself
a feeling I have about myself
a new, not yet shared with this group, openness statement about self.

wow we did it and fab fab wonder ...............................
