John Stewart (2012) used two very interesting terms (Inhaling and Exhaling) to describe the communication process. He further describes the communication process as ever-changing, multidimensional, sometimes confusing, continuous, etc. The term Inhaling refers to the perception and listening portion of the communication process and Exhaling refers to self-expression, or our ability to be open within the communication process or to self verify. (pp. 158) According to Stewart (2012) Inhaling and exhaling is part of the breathing process ( p.158) Inhaling is the process of you listening as someone shares some exciting information. When this happen you will naturally have some form of expression. Your expression would be considered as ; Exhaling which is the process of you sending a message. Empathetic listening allows us to become receptive and or sensitive to the full range of characteristics shared by the other person (Stewart, 2012). I find that I am becoming more and more aware of the communication process and the importance of communicating effectively. I understand that at each stage of communication whether inhaling/exhaling we all have a responsibility. In the past, I saw communication as an aggressive opportunity to get my point across. Not realizing that the information that I received was equally important as the message I was sending. Stewart teaches that at this stage of communication the listener and the speaker should have equal power in the communication process. This is no doubt a far cry from today’s society and how we as a people see and/or engage in the communication process.
