A heart-centered relationship takes time and takes self-reflection. It is a relationship that is centered in love and not fear. As don Miguel Ruiz states, ”The real us is pure love; we are Life” When a person is living life from a center of love their whole world reflects that. It’s taken me a long time to get to this point in relationships… Like every woman I have had my fair share of learning situations. I’ve had some great and some not so great but I have been blessed to take away some wonderful little nuggets of learning from every partnering. I’ve had everything from the boyfriend who cheated so atrociously that he had a child and even married another woman while we were together. To what I have now… each day is so wonderful that I am left breathless by his soulful generosity to everyone. I love that I have taken every opportunity to learn something of what I have wanted verses focusing on the “bad” and in turn creating an obstacle in my path. Nothing could be better than learning how to love myself more and more with each opportunity. Knowing that what I am feeling is valuable and knowing that whatever happens around you to not take it personally… Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves. Yet, Everyone learns and communicates differently and figuring out how your partner does that is so important in the longevity of a relationship. All the while not forgetting the love you have for yourself. I can’t stress enough that the love of your life starts with you!
