Having problems in your marriage or significant other? Need some help strengthening your relationship and develop healthy communication to keep peace? Individuals who teach meditation just may have an answer for you. They are firm believers that couples who meditate together can build long-term healthy relationships because they are more tuned to each other which provides for better communication and understanding.
Meditation teachers describe what is called "heightened intuition" and partnered meditation helps to bring about this behavior. Sometimes couples tend to ignore small changes in their partners behavior or are just unaware to these changes. Each person is going about their business essentially locked up in themselves not paying attention or perhaps they do notice but think it's a phase their partner is going through and eventually will go back to their original behavior. Quite often this is not true and it won't be long before they begin to drift apart.
This is where partnered meditation comes in. When couples make use of partnered meditation, they learn to pay attention to changes in their partner's behavior and respond quickly to avoid complications down the road. This is a very easy thing to learn and makes a lot of difference in your long-term relationship.
Meditation teachers also talk about being able to adapt to changing situations with ease so as not to create stress for a couple. There are times when all of us become needy and clingy or perhaps controlling. This wreaks havoc on any relationship. Partnered meditation can help both of you help cope with these behaviors by teaching you to adapt to the new situation and release the stress that it is causing. Controlling and needy behaviors will be under control and it certainly helps when both of you are knowledgeable about this which makes it easier to get a handle on. Meditation teachers also known compassion is important in any relationship. We generally have compassion with our partner, however that can quickly fall by the wayside when things go wrong. Partner meditation allows to realize this tension and work it out between both of you before damage occurs. Partner meditation can also teach nonreactive listening where you simply listen to what your partner has to say without reacting to it. This strengthens your bond for further open communication without fear and bringing about honesty.
