What are Divine Relationships? The first & most important Divine Relationship that you will ever have is with yourself. We are all a part of Source Energy/Infinite Intelligence and we are all connected. To simply say treat others as you would want to be treated is not enough. First we must ask ourselves “How do I want to be treated? ”We need to ask ourselves this because we have forgotten or simply do not know how we want to be treated. We have observed over the years what we think is the “norm” of how to treat others & how we “should” expect others to treat us. However, as we look at these examples we can identify behaviors that we do not wish to continue to receive from others or to give out ourselves.
As we identify these behaviors and acknowledge that we would like them to change, we can move forward by visualizing how we would like to be treated. Do you want to feel more accepted in your relationships? Look at how you are interacting with others. Are you able to accept them even though they might not be acting in a way that you believe is acceptable? The answer is not to condone their behaviors but to start to see them how you would like them to be.
An example would be arguing with a loved one. If you have been arguing frequently & there appears to be no resolution to the disagreement you may want to change the flow of energy by changing your expectations of the outcome.
Here’s a scenario. You are on your way home from work you begin to get that queasy feeling in the pit of your stomach. Oh I really don’t want to see Ralph because we will start to argue over finances again.
As that thought & feeling starts you can mentally say to yourself: STOP. Then replace the image of you going home & seeing Ralph. For the first time in a week you pause look at him & say, “How was your day?” You can visualize what you would think he would say. Now remember that if it does not seem realistic to you do not picture that image. Example: if you have been fighting for over a week He may not great you with a warm hug & everything is happily ever after.
However, if that is your goal you can visualize that & be aware that that particular outcome may not happen in the first day. Visualizations are very powerful especially when we back them up with positive energy. If you are very angry & are having trouble coming out of that spot first you need to do some self-care to get yourself to a point that you can see someone or something in a different light.
Back to Divine Relationships. I could discuss kindred souls, souls mates, twin flames & other relationships that we choose to have while we are here on earth. For now the most important thing to know about all relationships is that they are all valid, they are all a means for us to grow.
How are we to move on in our lives & build strong relationships if we are not willing to take the time & put forth the effort to allow these relationships to grow? In turn are we willing to see when we are at a point in our soul growth that we now recognize when we are ready to let a relationship go? Are we willing to learn the lessons that came with the relationship, ones that will help us build stronger relationships to come?
To love others unconditionally, we must first choose to love ourselves first. Allow yourself to fall in love with the uniqueness that is you, you are a Divine Being a Divine spark of Source Energy, identify your qualities that you can bring to a relationship with others, & be willing to work on what no longer serves you. Who knows what kind of love you will experience.
