Quarantine can test any relationship. Conflicts are inevitable and unavoidable. There cannot be a perfect moment or there’s nothing called a perfect life or perfect relationship. One must learn to live with the imperfections. However, if it happens on a regular basis life becomes a struggle. Hence it’s better to work on ways to lessen them before it becomes a threat to your relationship.
Here are a few fundamentals of a conscious relationship :
- Relationship to Self – The more connected and loving we are with ourselves, the less urgency we will feel around needing the validation and approval of others. Our internal relationship is the foundation in which all other relationships falter or flourish.
- Emotional Intelligence – In practice, conscious relationship is all about a moment to moment meeting of our bodies sensations, our thoughts, our beliefs systems, and our reactions to the world around us. Feeling our feelings, and being able to communicate them to others is an important skill.
- Ability to Self-Soothe – As an adult, it’s now your job to tend to the “little you” and learn to self-soothe in moments of heightened emotion, stress or fear. In essence, you are mothering your inner-child; nurturing that little one inside of you who needs attention, wants to feel safe, seen, heard and loved.
- Connection to Inner Guidance – Developing a clear connection between your mind and body is an important piece in developing self awareness. Being connected to your self awareness. Being connected to your self means you can trust your feelings, honour your needs, and listen to your body when sensations or emotions arise.
