4 ways to create spiritual intimacy with your partner
Even in a relationship, there comes a moment when our partner no longer feels as special as he once did.
Here are 4 ways to build spiritual intimacy with your partner for a successful lifelong relationship.
1. Know who you are
To truly connect spiritually with a loved one, you must first know yourself, inside and out. So consider your beliefs and values; what is most important to you? What are your goals and desires? Before you can fully connect with your partner, you must first understand yourself.
2. Forgive previous mistakes
To move forward, we must forgive in order to grow. Holding on to past wrongdoing can only lead to resentment and bitterness. It makes no difference whether you have experienced this in your current relationship or in a previous marriage. Start with a blank sheet so you can build new levels of understanding with your partner. Do not leave any traces of toxicity.
3. Engage in something more meaningful
The revolutionary idea that your role is to support each other on your path to ultimate evolution, to become your best self, elevates a spiritual partnership above and beyond a normal relationship. Make it clear that you are seeking spiritual growth, not just physical security or emotional support. This means that you are helping each other on your way to becoming a more "educated" being.
4. Bring your spirituality into your relationship
When you and your partner are in disagreement with each other or in a bad place in general, turn to your spirituality for comfort. Allow your partner to participate in this comfort zone with you. When you and your partner are unable to solve a problem, turn to your spiritual beliefs. Let your spiritual beliefs guide your relationship. Allow your shared beliefs to guide your decision-making with your partner.
