Tip #1 about conflicts:
In disagreements with your loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.
Tip #2 about neediness:
Remember the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.
Tip #3 about giving and getting:
Love is experienced in giving. It is by giving that you get.
Tip #4 about mirroring:
Everything that happens in every relationship is about you. If you are willing to listen to what it has to say to you or about you, you will find a gem of wisdom in every interaction.
Tip #5 about triggers:
To be clear: In relationship you will be triggered to feel unpleasant emotions. This is a given. If you allow it, as opposed to resisting it, you are then able to embrace, experience and release the emotion and absorb its learning.
Tip #6 about connection:
Look into your partner’s eyes when talking to them. If you truly want to create a deep connection start by looking into the depth of their being with an empty mind
Tip #7 about allowing:
A relationship will challenge you to allow the other person to be who they are and do what they feel is right. If you observe yourself wanting to change the other, stop and breathe – and change YOUR habit.
Tip #8 about honesty:
Be honest in your relationship, first of all, in relation to yourself and then in relation to your partner. Speak the truth about your emotions, your actions and your thoughts. Nothing hurts as much as the energy of a secret lingering between two people which will sooner or later lead to either dissolution of intimacy and connection, or to the time when truth is being revealed.
Tip #9 about intimacy:
Whenever intimacy and sex is fulfilling, the chances of love and a joyful life together are greater. Sexual rapport creates possibility for intimacy and honesty, and a bonding, loving union. You need to transcend your sexual blocks and fears of intimacy and your relationship is the best place to do it!
Tip #10 about letting go:
If you store things up and bring them up every time you and your partner have an argument you are poisoning your connection. Deal with present time issues and let past issues go. If you are having a hard time letting go, find someone that can support you in processing, forgiving and letting go – this is what ‘dropping the baggage’ means.
