Conscious Relationships:  Effort is necessary.  Suffering is not.

Are all relationships healing?

Last time, we were encouraged to:

Remember Who We Are.

Remember Who They Are.

Express our True Essence Self.

Look for the Light in our partner.

Invite them into Love.

Take these steps.  Be curious.  Watch what happens.

Good plan, however, not every relationship that has conflict can be maintained.  Sometimes, real health and growth comes from saying good bye.  If there is not enough awareness, not a high enough level of consciousness, growth may be thwarted; pain may turn into suffering.

For instance, if there is a level of Ego Action that keeps one or both partners so stuck in an unconscious Old Story that they are in real danger of harm; whether it is physical, sexual, or emotional harm, getting immediate support to protect either partner would be the best course of action.

In these kinds of situations, there is so little ability to pause, step back, observe and reflect, that it would be virtually impossible to heal and grow from the experiences.

Safety would be the first line of action, undoubtedly. 

However, this doesn’t mean that after the danger is averted, there wouldn’t be plenty to reflect on.  In fact, it would behoove anyone involved in this type of unconscious playing out of an Old Story, to do exactly that. 

Once you are safe, once the dust has settled…

Pause.  Step back.  Observe and reflect.

What was that Story I was playing out?

Today, let us hold an intention to notice where we feel paralyzed in our relationships.  If there is physical violence, verbal attacks, sexual coercion or assault, it will be obvious that an Old Story is playing out.

But we can feel victimized, attacked, powerless, even when the Action is not that obvious. 

Today, let us pay attention to any of the places we may experience these feelings, and remember that the Old Stories of the past are no longer the Truth.

When you were a child, indeed, you were powerless against the adults around you; you did not have any resources to guide you.

Now, as an Adult, even if you are smaller, weaker, less financially secure, you are far from powerless. 

As an Adult, you now have the inner resources and can use them to seek out information, support and guidance to help you find safety for yourself…and to transport you beyond survival, and well into healing, growth and expansion.

Your Essence Life is waiting for you…

“Turn your wounds into wisdom.”
~ Oprah Winfrey


I am brilliant;

I am magnificent;

I am a being of Love and Light.

I am here to bring my Essence Self to every experience of my Life.
