Your relationship may be going along fine, but somehow you feel that something is missing. Are you soul-mates? Or have you just ended up together because neither of you had anything better on the horizon? Spiritual wisdom teaches us that no relationship happens by chance. If you are with each other it is for a reason, and you are meant to grow together. Foster that soul-to-soul connection using the following five points for a radiant and uplifting partnership.
PRACTICE SPIRITUALITY DAILY
Agree with your lover that you will do something spiritual together each day. This could mean lighting a joss stick and candle and having five minutes peace before bed-time, to centre down and reflect. (This could involve your relationship chalice – see below) Or it could mean looking at the stars together. Many people find the practice of shared meditation very boding, so research a guided visualisation you can listen to together. Afterwards you can compare notes. It’s a good idea to write down what each of you has experienced.
HAVE TIME FOR REGULAR INTIMACY
You may have sex regularly, but are you truly connecting? Set the scene with candles, music and incense, and dedicate and evening to each other. Take the time to connect intimately, telling each other how you feel, exploring your own sensations and the reactions of your lover.
Practice sensual massage, and experience the overwhelming pleasure of giving pleasure. Be aware that your bodies are a great gift from the Divine. Feel the energy build between you, and pledge your love to each other. Visualise the power of your feelings creating a glow around you that forms a ball of light, which then separates from you, rising into the air, drawn to any part of the world that needs healing. Visualise this radiant globe showering light and love into the shadowy corners of the earth, so your love is a force for good.
NURTURE THE CHALICE OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP
When two people combine, they create a third entity- the relationship itself. Although it’s important to look after your partner, there’s something more to do – look after the relationship. Your relationship is like a chalice, your own personal Holy Grail, containing all the wonderful, caring qualities, the essence of your connection.
After the initial excitement has worn off, many people slip back into their daily routines, letting the relationship take care of itself, but that’s a mistake. As a couple you may do fine, moving forwards in life and being successful. You may be getting on well enough together, but if you want that higher connection you need to put in some effort.
You might like to get a goblet, chalice or large wine glass to symbolise your relationship. Place this on a shelf or cupboard top between two candles, and honour it by garlanding it with wild-flowers, burning incense, placing religious/spiritual symbols close to it or by pouring wine or juice into it and sharing it. As you do this, talk to each other about your relationship, how precious it is, how it’s changed your life, where you feel you’re going together. Doing this regularly will forge an unbreakable bond between you, and enable you to soar together.
