Honesty and Vulnerability the Key to Intimacy

One of the main factors of having and keeping a good relationship is being able to trust, and have good communication. In order for others to trust us, we have to be able to become vulnerable, and show our vulnerability. Honesty and vulnerability go hand in hand. You cannot be totally, and genuinely truthful with another, without opening up fully to them.[...]

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

We are conceived through a connection, of the deepest kind, between a man and a woman, and from the moment that we are conceived, we are connected to our Mother in her womb. When that physical connection we began with is separated at birth, we spend our lives desiring to be connected again. How we go about, and how well we succeed, at re-creating that connection…becomes the story of our lives.[...]

"Puppet On A String" Who Is Controlling Your Strings?

I was raised in a family of givers, and caretakers, and the old fashion way, where the women wait on the men, and take care of the home, but in the world of relationships, that tenancy and upbringing, if taken too far, can get me into a whole lot of trouble with men, and ultimately be the downfall of any relationship. There is a fine line between caring for someone and allowing yourself to be a “puppet on a string”. When you spend all of your time trying to please another person, at your own expense; they will see you as weak, possessive and clingy.[...]

Have You Seen My Rose Colored Glasses?"

I was reading an article by Zara Stevens, and it hit on something that has been on my mind a lot these past few years. "You no longer make me happy anymore." I heard this statement a lot at the end of my last relationship; that had started out with the most profound happiness that I could ever imagine. Both of us were filled with dreams that we were working to create together, along with supporting each other's individual dreams. But then there came that "crack", as Zara put it. I think that so many times part of the problem lies in the fact; that we meet someone, and they begin to bring so very much happiness into our lives, that each of you creates this perfect picture in your mind, about what a wonderful,[...]

Shh! Are You Listening...Can You Hear It?

minds-eyeSo many of us go through our lives, like busy bees pointing our fingers at the circumstances and everyone else, for anything and everything that does not go right in our lives. Never stopping to realize or care, that when you point a finger outward, that there are three pointing back at you.

I am a firm believer that, everyone and everything that we encounter in our lives, even including the ones that are within our peripheral vision; the grocery store check out person, toll booth operator, right down to our friends, lovers, children and parents, is there to teach us something. To even take this a step further out on the edge of the gang plank; they were brought into our lives, as we are theirs, by our soul, psyche, higher power, etc, to teach us about ourselves; to bring us closer to emotional freedom, and to pure love, which is our souls, sole purpose.

I also am a firm believer that everyone that comes into our lives, is a mirror reflection of ourselves. What we like about someone else, is a reflection of what we like about ourselves, and on the same token, what we dislike in another person, is a reflection of some part of ourselves, that we are unhappy with. It does not matter how obnoxious, angry, disagreeable, narcissistic, abusive, or whatever, that they may be.

Or those things we dislike about another, is bringing out an unresolved issue within us. You know, all those past hurts and injustices that we have buried deep down inside, hoping to forget about, but never truly released. The ones that we stop to the local bar to drowned in alcohol, or run to our trusted Doctor to prescribe us a few bottles of pills, to get past. So no blaming, now. Scary thought, isn’t it?

Now, if we are willing to take that knowledge, and take a good look within ourselves, instead of flailing our finger outward, this person now becomes a great asset to us, and supplies us with the perfect opportunity to delve into those deep, dark crevices, of our soul. Now they can be looked upon as a gift, rather than a curse. They become a tool that we can use to resolve unresolved issues, so that it doesn’t keep creeping back into our lives, to haunt us over and over again.

Now, this also holds true for the person that you are attracted to. If you can take the time to stop and see beyond the slot machine that has just hit the jackpot within you; you know, the infatuation, lust, and confusion of emotional glee; you can learn again, that there is an unresolved issue within you, that they have just ignited. This is not to say that we should not fall in love with that person, or that they are wrong for us in any way. Only that they are there to teach us something about ourselves, and love.

Every time a person, or a circumstance in our lives, causes a reaction within us, it is our soul, our intuition, our higher power, subconscious; (which ever term you choose to use), trying to desperately tell us an important message, and is attempting to get you to stop and listen to. This does not always mean that it is a bad thing, just something that is incomplete and unresolved, and this is your souls way of presenting it to you, so that it can be addressed, and bring you closer to yourself, and emotional freedom. We are meant to learn about ourselves through others, and the circumstances that are presented to us throughout our lives.

The moral of the story, just in case I lost anyone off that gang plank, is…anytime that you feel a reaction in your mind, or your body, stop and listen to it. Stop and feel what you are feeling, where you feel it. Observe it closely. It is there because that inner, wiser, all knowing part of yourself, is trying to scream a message at you. Take just a moment and discover what it is exactly that was said or done, that just caught your body, heart, mind and souls attention.

Shhh! Listen!
