There’s a lot that goes into every relationship. There must be patience, sharing, strength, individualism, and most importantly, trust. Whether it’s an association you have with a coworker, friend, family member, loved one, or someone else in your life, relationships help keep us grounded when we need it and lift us up when we feel as if there’s nowhere to go. The relationships we choose have a powerful impact on our mental health and should be chosen carefully.

The people in our lives who we choose to associate with should provide positivity, empathy, and understanding, but that isn’t always the case. There will always be circumstances where misunderstandings, challenges, disagreements, and other dysfunctional elements arise.

When it comes to marriage in the United States, nearly 50% of all them end in divorce or separation and roughly 40% of all first marriages end in divorce. A bleak number that often doesn’t provide a lot of hope for people who are looking to take the next step. But rather than looking at the glass half full and thinking the odds are stacked against you, think about the positives that come from it and how you can strengthen what you already have.

Stop Focusing on the Negatives

Every relationship will have its ups and downs. We are all our own people and all have our own opinions and thoughts. Disagreements from time to time are normal, so stop looking at them as if the world is falling apart.

Don’t Just Hear, Listen

Just because you hear what the other person is saying doesn’t mean you’re listening to what’s being said. You can hear a siren in the background but you choose not to listen to it. Listen to your partner and understand them. Empathize with them. Be an active listener and you’ll find that both of you will be better off.

Be Open

Keeping emotions, thoughts, feelings bottled up never does anyone any good. Be open in your relationship and share how you feel. If your partner does something you don’t like, let them know. This will help both of you work through problems rather than suppressing your feelings and talking about them with other people.

Nobody is Always Right

Unfortunately, neither of you can always be right. Too many people would rather go down with the ship than admit that they were wrong. There is a time and a place for a discussion, but when neither one of you can come to an agreement, one needs to accept the other’s point of view and move on. Getting hung up on who’s right and who’s wrong never does anybody any favors.

Let Go

We all have a heart and we all have feelings. Whether you want to admit it or not. Too many people choose to act strong and tough rather than opening up and allowing themselves to be vulnerable. When in reality, opening up and allowing yourself to be vulnerable is one of the bravest things you can do.

Stop Waiting

If you feel that there are issues in your relationship, prolonging them will only make things worse. Being open and talking about issues that are happening now will mitigate resentment down the line and could prevent the cup from spilling over into other areas of your life.

Meditation for Relationships

Relationships have their struggles, but when managed properly, they can out last the 50% that end in divorce. Relationship counselors and therapy are helpful techniques but focus more on the relationship as a whole, rather than two individuals. If a relationship has holes in it, where will the missing pieces come from?

Meditation on the other hand, is a technique that helps both people individually so they can come together as a whole. Meditation for relationships will help you deal with stressful situations and challenges in a better, more meaningful way. It will also help you and your partner decompress and be more mindful about yourself, your thoughts, your feelings, and your relationship.

Increase Your Patience

Patience, the feelings we have while we wait at point A to get to point B. In your relationship, impatience often leads to arguments and conflict. As you ask your partner a question and become impatient with their answer, accusations can arise leading you both down a path neither of you wants to take. Taking the time and having the patience to work with your partner, breathe, and be understanding of them while you wait will help you and your partner be calmer in these situations.

Be More Forgiving

Meditation focuses on letting the small things in your life drift by without giving them your attention. This will help you and your partner as you’ll now be letting the small things in life go rather than harping on them. You’ll learn to forgive and forget rather than internally building up anger and resentment.

Improve Your Awareness

Who you are and who your partner is are very important in your relationship. It’s what brought the two of you together in the first place. Meditation will help you and your partner better understand each other’s needs and emotions. Being more aware of yourself and your partner is a key to a successful relationship and will help lead you both to a happier and healthier life together.

Start Practicing Your Meditative Techniques

Every relationship will have conflicts at one point or another. It’s when conflict becomes a constant presence in relationships and the arguments taking place do so with malice, anger, and little sense of resolution that they become strained.

Meditation is a starting point for improving relationships because it helps provide clarity, awareness, forgiveness, and patience for one another. It also helps you become more mindful so you can think more clearly and in new ways.

At Theta, we provide GMS (Guided Meditation and Suggestion) therapy by providing you with meditative techniques to transport you into a deeply relaxed state so your unconscious mind will be more open to suggestion.

GMS can also help you learn to cope with conflict and manage difficult emotions more easily. It can also help you build confidence and ask for what you need, something that is so important in relationships. Communication is vital and hypnotherapy may well be able to help you with this.
