This past weekend I had the opportunity to expand, grow, and deepen my connection with the love of my life. We signed up for a life-changing relationships workshop, and we were ready to look at how we both show up in relationships of all kinds.
We were open to going deep and uncovering anything that could be standing in our way of having THE most dynamic relationship imaginable. The awesome part is that we were already happy with our relationship and very grateful for what we have co-created.
If you’ve read my blogs before, you may already know that my man is pretty amazing and that our relationship is rather incredible. For those who are not as open as my Daily Lovers, they may think: “if your relationship is so great, why fix it if it doesn’t need to be fixed?”
We didn’t go into the workshop with the intention of trying to “fix” anything. Brad and I instead went into the workshop being attached to nothing, because we didn’t know what we didn’t know. Because we were open, we allowed ourselves to let anything that came up entirely come out.
We abandoned our fears of judgment or being wrong. We were committed to experiencing our own breakthroughs so we could connect on the molecular level. We learned that as far as you are from facing your pain or fears, you are the same distance from your partner. To build a wall around your heart is to also be out of touch with the deepest sense of intimacy.
How you do one thing is how you do everything.
I will speak for myself when I say that I had one of the most amazing and powerful breakthroughs of my entire life in this workshop. I released energy and words that have never been spoken from my mouth to anyone. And to experience that with my love being present, it was terrifying and freeing at the same time.
It was a visceral experience and I didn’t know how I’d get through it, but I did, and I’ve never felt a connection to my own soul – or my life partner – in the way I do now. I realized that I get to share this vulnerable information with the world in my upcoming book, Love All That Is You, because being transparent and raw is what The Uni-verse is calling for.
I know that my story will impact the world, and I know that I may be judged by being as honest as I intend to be. What I also know is that my man is even more in love with me than before we walked through those doors on the first night. I know that I am safe and loved unconditionally by him, and my breakthrough allowed me to really see that we are in this game of life together.
Personal development is so important, but working on ourselves as a couple is what will keep our union fresh and pure. We are without jealousy or resentment. We are fully equipped with open communication in a judgment-free zone.
To “work” on us as a couple does not say that we are missing something from our relationship. It is, in fact, saying that we will do whatever it takes to keep those butterflies alive and that passion on fire. Transformation is a daily journey, just like going to the gym.
Every day, people say to us, “I want what you two have!” We are committed to sharing our passion with the world and watching other relationships continue to blossom with each and every new moment. Today’s ceiling is tomorrow’s floor, so keep moving on and up. You can never learn or grow too much. Invest in what’s possible for you and the person you love by sharing new experiences together. And don’t forget:
Love All That Is You,
P.S. are you in a committed relationship? If you are, tell me all about what you envision for your life with this person. If you are in a committed relationship with yourself, tell me all about the person you are setting yourself up for. Nothing is off limits. Dream BIG! And do it here in the comments section, I love reading your thoughts!
