The number one worry/complaint that my clients come to me with is, “My partner isn’t spiritual.” He or she won’t go to therapy, meditation class, or church. This desire to help fix the partner’s situation is actually a huge block to your own spiritual evolvement…and it will not help the relationship.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Most relationships stay intact when one person in the relationship has an awakening. The reason is that the other person will energetically match (entrain) to your level of consciousness, and they won’t have to meditate or go to church to do it (I had a client lament that this wasn’t fair. I get it and get over it)!
It is this principle of entrainment that is so important to the healing of our homes, communities, and the world.
The key is to get clear and release your own mental, emotional, and spiritual baggage first. Then once that is done, you will see your partner with new eyes. I’ve seen deeper love and more committed relationships happen as a result of just ONE person following his/her spirit.
- Don’t use your partner as an excuse to ignore the call of your soul. It is often the case that we use our partner as an excuse not to move forward into the unknown. But let me assure you that ignoring the call to connect with Source is more painful than facing the temporary upheaval that your practice may bring to your life. Have faith. God’s got you, knows you, loves you, and wants the absolute best for you.
- If your partner is belittling, undermining, or attempting to sabotage your efforts, still move forward with your practice. Your spiritual practice will strengthen you, and help you to set clear and decisive boundaries. Again, first you get clarity then decide whether or not the relationship is worth saving.
Be brave my friend. God/Spirit/Source has wonderful things in store for you and your loved ones.
