There is a lot of New-Age talk regarding the new era approaching us, an ensuing age of countless possibilities, spiritual evolution and mass awakenings. But what should this evolutionary process be like for a couple? And what do you do if only one’s consciousness seems to be expanding, while the others remains the same?
The Age of Aquarius is afoot, and with that a wave of spiritual enlightenment becomes more and more obvious. People all over the world are awakening to their own inner powers, the forces of their own minds and spirits. But for some, this ‘shift’ has not yet been evident in their environment, their loved ones still clinging onto the old, Pisces-age paradigms.
This lack of spiritual synchronicity also applies to couples, in which is even more intense than that of other relationships. If you feel that your vibration and consciousness may be excelling while your partner’s isn’t, here are some of the signs that you are right:
How to Help your Partner Awaken
Awakening is not a trait bestowed upon you in this lifetime, nor will you earn some ‘Awakening Certificate’ at the end of your journey. Awakening is a procedure that can occur individually or collectively and, no matter what the course, it will have to be acknowledged and enjoyed like any other journey.
Here are some tips to get your partner into that mindset and take him by the hand as a co-passenger in your spiritual awakenings:
Watch a video with basic spiritual content and keep the volume up while your partner is passing by the lounge or the computer desk. No one can easily block out sound, so some attention will be paid to what is being said. This may draw him/her to asking more about what the video is about.
When in need, people always look to faith in something greater than themselves. If you are a spiritual healer, offer your help to your partner the next time he has a headache or feels ill. People rarely say no to therapy.
Invite over some friends who enjoy spiritual conversations. When such a topic arises, don’t hesitate to elaborate as much as you can on it without seeming like know-it-all and allowing your partner to participate in the conversation. Keep the vocabulary and terminology as basic as possible, so that he/she doesn’t feel like an outsider.
Leave a spiritually themed book on the bed, desk or kitchen table and exit the particular room or house. If you’re not present, your partner will most likely be inclined to read the blurb or even the first pages. Just don’t pressure hover over his/her head agonizing as to whether it will interest him/her or not.
Opt to take part in a spiritual event, asking your partner to accompany you. If he/she cringes at the idea, just mention that you would go with them to some event that they were interested in, had they asked you to do so.
Remember, each person is on their own spiritual path and cannot be forced into detouring or becoming somebody they are not. You should never attempt to force your partner into his/her awakening process. Be fair, polite and positive, and both of you will come to join hands in your own, intertwined spiritual evolution.
