Being in Tune with Your Partner

Leave a comment

012
Everyone has something that they put themselves into, a passion, a hobby, a career… Being in tune with our partner is knowing what they need to thrive, and supporting them in making that happen. This makes you the most wanted person on the planet. This practice is consistently on going, and like good wine it gets better with time. This pours into all forms of life; personal, sex, family, home, friends, spiritual practice…
She loves to tend plants, so I build flowerbeds. She processes some of her life through color. So she picks out the color, and I paint the room. And when she crashes emotionally, she knows my gentle strength is there for her support. Happy partner, thriving relationship. Helping her to process by supporting her to be the best she can be, and at her speed. I know she knows what she needs, I don’t have to guess. Or simply knowing when to be quiet, as in not having to fix everything she speaks of.
Intimately knowing her love language, the culture she’s accustom with, the family dynamics she grew up in, what her personal growth curve is, her spiritual goals, and out of all that what she values from me different from what I think.
The instincts of women is that they are information gathers and supreme nurtures, and that’s what makes them so valuable to men. The same would be said for men: beyond his protection he also provides the space and vehicle for her creativity. The more he knows about her, and is consistently attentive to her needs, the more valuable he becomes as a mate to her.

My blessings to you…

Notes:
Be mindful of your own sense of personal boundaries. Give as much as you’re willing to give, or the resentment will shred what you’re trying to build. Follow the happiness of what you’re providing. Pace yourself, we’re not building Rome in a day. A little goes a long ways. However be very mindful of the Plans and Promises that are spoken of.
Remember: this needs to be consistent all the way through your relationship. The quality of what you did to win her heart in the beginning of your relationship, needs to be consistent all the way through to the end. When she says “I do”, it keeps going. When you stop, the relationship and her trust begins to unravel. Women need this support all the way through their lives for a healthy relationship, just like how the masculine needs physical and emotional attention all the way through his life.
Know their love-language, because if he speaks a different language than what she needs to experience, she won’t get her needs met. The love-language that your partner needs, needs to be something that’s easy for you to give. This is part of “do we match”? And if not, then it’s necessary to find a balanced way of receiving that need through another avenue. This is always done through communication with your partner, so they are in on the discussion, and part of the decision.
The love-languages are:
words of affirmation, (affection)
physical touch,
acts of service,
quality time,
and gifts.

Plans and Promises

4 Comments

100_1392Something all men need to remember: women hear everything you plan to do and file it away in their minds. So as the relationship continues, they are looking for you to fulfill that promise, even though to you it doesn’t seem to be a promise, and when it’s not fulfilled she begins to loose faith in you as a provider. This is an automatic emotional response, as part of her instinctual behavior, and part of how women process information in relationships, and NOT something she can change.
Part of how a man pulls in a woman on a date, is by sharing his ideas and plans for their union. Everything that is spoken out loud with her, needs to be produced. This includes all ideas of doing things, going places or owning things. A man who is a good provider will always perform the plans he speaks of, and this in turn will build a closer connection with her.
When a man shares plans and promises without truly having the intention of actually doing it, he will find himself in the bewilderment of his woman’s wrath, and not understanding where all this resentment came from!? “Well buddy, this is it”.
It is exceptionally important for a man to do what he says he will, or ONLY keep those ideas in his thoughts. This needs to be an active practice for most men, or get used to the idea of living in the doghouse.
However to those in which this action comes naturally, you can skip over this exam, for you have already passed this class.

The Changing Winds

2 Comments

For a problem to be solved, the solution must be of a higher vibrational frequency, then that of which created it in the first place. This is why it doesn’t quite feel as though it’s changed, it just feels as if it’s repeating itself. Quiet your spirit, quiet your thoughts, quiet your emotions until you come to mental and emotional clarity. Where life begins to come back into alignment with love and abundance. We are loosing our patience with our fellow humans, simply because we don’t have a practice of being quiet.
There was a time not so long ago, where we lived and reacted to the movement of Spirit. Listening to the rhythms of the shift in seasons, or watching the animals to see what’s going on in the neighborhood. Our attention to our environment was very different then, then now. Today we have a lot of gadgets and technology that distract us from what is real. A gathering of friends, face to face interactions with people, or acts of exceptional kindness.
Solving a problem can no longer always be fire with fire, that is old-school thinking. Nothing alters a persons fortunes more, then being in a higher awareness. From this expanded view we can see beyond the reactionary emotion, and engage with the wisdom of the Sages. Because when we react without thinking, those around us who are in balance, will only see the fool in us, and this can burn bridges and break down lines of trust. To be taken seriously requires us to put the emotions on the shelf, and calmly bring resolutions to the table.
Being reactionary and fighting fire with fire makes more fire, with it’s loud and angry voices. However, it’s the calm, and collective mind with the answers to resolve that gets the attention. A judge doesn’t want to listen to you when you’re being angry, he will however pay more attention to a calm voice with a resolution.

(I’m not a fan of political opinions) If we want change in our country (USA), protesting in outrage against corporations that are bigger than our government itself will not change a thing, like a flea to an elephant. Instead be the change you want to see. We often forget that “we the people” are the machine that makes the corporations big. Educate yourself on the world around you; everything from what is sprayed into the air that we breathe, what is smeared on the skin, the food that is eaten… Support or start businesses that produce healthy products, transform your home’s energy needs, use transportation that supports your own best ideas. Every time we let go of the emotional ego, then create something from a higher awareness, that something becomes very successful simply because it has the “perfection of God” in it.

In Marriage, What Are We Looking For?

2 Comments

021What draws us together and has us fall in love with a person? In observing my fellow bloggers, I see the attraction being very sexual. Then I watch them trying to carve out a practical, functioning relationship that is based on hot, steamy sexuality. What makes a relationship work is temperament in personality, and something that is nearly ignored because the sex is so great. Sex is the bonus and should be the last thing on the list when looking for a quality life-mate. More importantly what we need to experience with our mate, before we say “I do”, is their disagreeable side. Everyone has one, and it’s so important to have a strong grasp on whether or not that is something you can handle for a lifetime.
* How they deal with anger, and more importantly, how they “deal with you” while angry.
* With the conflict: are they responsible with their own emotional reactions by practicing boundaries, or do they insist that it’s all your fault for their unhappiness.
* In the area of sex, some people have a very crude understanding of the sensitivities that need to be shared in sexuality.
* Marriage in the 18 and 1900’s made complete sense, simply because things moved at a slower pace, and it took us a lifetime to process through our emotional issues with our partner. Today, things move so much faster, we process through our emotional issues so much more quickly. Staying in a marriage requires us to have eyes wide open, to build our communicative skills, and to learn as much or more about ourselves then we do about our partner.
* Relationships have a modal that they follow: first is the romance; pure chemistry, designed to pull you both together. Then that shifts into partnership, where 78% of the chemistry fades, and honest love shines it’s radiance. And for some, in our latter years companionship shows it’s true colors.
An amazing amount of people get married before the relationship has a chance to shift into partnership [up to 8 months], because when it does the intensity really changes. If you’re someone who loves change, then this will be fun for you.
These are a few of the responses you want to experience before marriage.
Very few people have the Will of heart to see beyond love, beyond sex, to see if and where a relationship is sturdy. If it’s not working, then simply bless them and let them go, and continue the search for the right one. Asking the right questions, patiently waiting for the response, and having the courage to only say “yes” to the one that passes the grade.
Every single relation/connection with people has an alignment: if your angry with the world, your alignment with this person is one in which they will mirror to you what needs to be healed. If you fall in love with someone in which “you feel” is not quite right and you do it anyway, the connection will show you why it’s so important to give attention to your intuition/gut feeling/inner voice. Alignment made manifest, and so it is.
A healthy and meaningful marriage today requires eyes wide open. This is not just a concept in one’s mind, this is seeing them act it out. If (he) does not shift his awareness, and curb his actions to match your needs, then it may not be in him to do so. Having eyes wide open means less will take you by surprise.

May your search be swift and true.
Blessings…

True Love

3 Comments

True Love is something in you to express, it’s earned by the practice of devotion. It doesn’t happen between two people, it happens within you and therefore it flows out of you.
Within the human heart is the god seed, which has multipal functions. Intuition is one, the knowing of love to be true. Then when you find another person who is as passionate about this as you are, then you have bliss.

Love comes after romance and about a month or 2 after shifting into partnership. If the love and fascination of the other person has the momentum to carry you beyond romance, then it has a profound chance of becoming love.
If you can joyfully get beyond 4 years your chances are better than most. Unfortunately most people see romance as being compatible, when in fact your compatibility happens when you can stay steady while the other person is showing their disagreeable side, as they will with you. If his anger is more than you can tolerate, than it would be said that you’re not compatible.
Everyone has a disagreeable side, and for some reason most people completely avoid it. When in fact that is what you want to see and experience before committing your life to them.

Take the time to “know thy self”. Know where your tolerances are, the quality of relationships you desire, and have the integrity to hold steady to what you want to accomplish in the course of your own life.

True love happens when we know, understand and honestly take responsibility for our own dysfunctional ego. Love is the polar opposite of ego. So if we are expressing love, and we call it true, it simply means we clearly understand that we are not expressing anything associated with ego.

Making Space

Leave a comment

With all our crazy scheduling, running around to one appointment after another, where do we have time for a relationship? America’s work ethic is right next to China in terms of how much time we spend working, and our pursuit of happiness comes second. We think if we work hard happiness will come of it. That’s not so, if you have the joyful laughter inside you from the start, then it won’t matter how much money you make, you will always have a happy experience.
When choosing to get involved in a relationship in this crazy hectic world of ours, it’s very important to make space for that person. Unless of course you’re just interested in a date; a dinner party with friends and you need a date, or dinner, movie and sex with no real commitment. The moment commitment becomes the issue it’s SO important to make space: physical space, half the room is his. Emotional space, you check in with them about your plans with your coming’s and going’s. And spiritual space, freedom of expression.
So often we fill our time with activities, and think our lover is just going to magically fold into our scheduling, or be there when ever we need them. A healthy relationship needs us to slow down, and give it the nurturing support, so it has the space to become a joyful experience.

“Light Bulb”!?

011When your young [in your teens and 20’s] sex tends to be that god like connection. We find sex is for exploring other people, is for exploring who you are, who you can be, and so on. Then in your 30′s it’s in finding who brings the most joy from it. And finally in the late 40′s and 50′s it’s all about transformation. We come full circle, in that through sex we reconnect to God. We find healing in sex, and we find the flow of abundance in the energy of the sexual orgasm. The irony in it all, is that women in their late 50′s and 60′s begin to move away from sex, while men are beginning to explore those more defined details in the qualities of intimacy through sexuality.
Two things men need in a relationship: sex and attention, and they need it ALL the way through their lives.
A women needs safe, nurturing emotional connections with her lover, all the way through her life
.
Women are at their prime from the 20’s to mid to late 40’s. Then they begin to lose interest and take the attention off of their husbands, and begin to focus more on themselves, as in career and quality of life.

A woman can have the belief system of the man being the financial provider, so she can be a stay-at-home housewife. Then the kids come along, and she no longer has as much time or energy to give him the attention he needs as he needs it.
Hence, the man cheats on his wife, and has an affair with a younger woman who has the time and energy for giving him the attention he so craves. And after all that he comes back to his wife, because she is the only one who truly knows and completely understands him, and in “that”, he finds her more attractive than the younger woman.

May your blessings be in that you understand this before…

* Why is the younger woman attracted to the older man? Because at this point in his development he has learned how to navigate his emotions, and therefore he’s more centered less reactionary. He’s learned the importance of being present and emotionally available. And he has more practice in understanding what it is that needs his physical attention from her communications, and what just needs to be heard. And that brings us to the other piece of irony in relationships, which is when women are having children in their 20’s and 30’s, they need a man who is emotionally centered, is settled into the home life, and has strong financial stability. All this describes the older man, because at that age the younger man is out chasing adventures.
All this shows us how men and women are so completely unique from each other.
“And I realize not ALL men fit into this description”.
Sometimes women are attracted to the security of the older man because they have “daddy” issues. There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s just a piece of their childhood experience that was missing, and it’s a process of having that experience that helps to move them forward.
Men can also have mommy issues , as in not letting go. This just means they need more time to process that experience, and for some that may be a lifetime.
There is absolutely nothing wrong about being attracted to an older man or woman, their just a bit more settled is all.

For some women, the moment they have him they want to change him. These are women that are unsatisfied within themselves, and they are trying to change their environment by changing the environment. When in fact what creates “real” change is shifting your personal perception, or modifying your own behavior. In any case it happens within you. He has absolutely nothing to do with it. It’s a hole in your heart that you need to heal. And if you want very specific qualities in a man, then look for the man that posses those qualities first, because he can’t create what he doesn’t have. Men will change only so far for a woman, before they start to crumble under that pressure, and if you persist the relationship will unravel faster than you can say “lickitty-split”.
