Meditation can help you to have happier, healthier and more intimate relationships.
While it may sound a little strange that something as simple as meditation could be good for your relationships lets investigate how this works.
How Meditation Benefits Relationships
It’s quite natural for two people to not always see things the same way. This can often lead to a breakdown in communication or conflict. Fortunately, meditation can help with this. The way it works is that consistent meditation helps increase your compassion.
As your compassion increases it makes it easier to connect with how your partner is feeling which leads to greater acceptance of who they are. It also has the reverse effect of making it easier for people to get along with you.
Mindfulness meditation has also been shown to lower relationship distress while improving couples levels of closeness and relationship satisfaction. The way this works is that regular practice of mindfulness changes the relationship you have with the mind. In effect, it develops a non-judgemental way of thinking and feeling.
Being less judgmental about the way you think and feel is one of the most powerful gifts that meditation brings. Not only does this help you to be happier and healthier in your own life, it also gets extended to others.
Meditation also helps to reduce your stress levels. Stress is one of the biggest factors in depleting your energy levels and causing mood swings. By lowering your stress levels it frees up your energy which can result in an increase in your sexual energy for enhanced sexual relationships.
The biggest gift that meditation brings is to that of your relationship with yourself. Not only does it help you to be kinder and more compassionate towards yourself, it also helps you to open up to deeper levels of calm and inner peace.
When everything is right within yourself, then it is so much easier to find what is right with the world around you. That’s why meditation is such a powerful tool for relationships. First, it changes the way you look at yourself, then it changes the way you view others.
It gets even better if you and your partner can meditate together. There are some beautiful couples meditations that are designed to help you both open to deeper levels of love, connection, and intimacy. Just a few minutes a day meditating together could be the best investment you ever made in improving the quality of your relationships.
