We now know that our real soul mate is when we connect deeply with our spirit. Once we can feel our spirit, we can then start to bring that clear, real relationship we have with our self into relating with others.
The problem is that our relationships with our friends, partners, colleagues, students, etc. are always in a state of change. They are very complex. We need to keep a clear relationship with ourselves so we can extend that out through our electromagnetic field when we deal with others. This is called having an authentic relationship. Relationships even ones filled with conflict we deal with through integrity, kindness, intuitive intelligence and neutrally. You always express love, your authenticity and your soul, as opposed to your projected fears and defences that are provoked during challenging circumstances.
Now think of a time in your life when you felt the most authentic and your core self? What do you look, sound and feel like? With whom do you feel you can be yourself without feeling judged? How do you recognise an authentic relationship verses an inauthentic one where you have something to gain from displaying particular behaviour.
Yogi bhajan says, “ Relationship is nothing but a totally extended experience of self”.
For me being authentic is saying what I mean and following through with my words. I have had to start being more careful with how I relate to people through my speech. Not just saying empty words to fill the time , or making empty promises to please people. I strive to hold the relationship with myself consciously, not to let myself down or anyone else down. To face relationships evening challenging ones with love first over projected fears and defences that are provoked by circumstances and act neutrally, from my soul.
One Minute Breath: Tune in with Ong Namo, Guru Dev Namo 3-5x. Sit with a straight spine. Inhale deeply for 20 seconds, hold for 20 seconds, exhale for 20 seconds. You may start with 10 seconds and build up. Even if you do this for 3 mins it can really get you back in touch with the true, authentic self.
