Master these simple practices and feel love grow in you.
Tell your beloved how important they are, often.
No matter how sure you are of someone’s love, it’s always nice to be reminded of it. Think of expression as giving a gift of beautiful fragrant flowers.
Communicate your feelings openly.
Share how you authentically feel. Express your joys, fears, tears and insecurities. Have the courage to be yourself with your loved ones and trust their ability to be there for you.
Ask thoughtful questions and listen intently.
Too often we underestimate the power of a thoughtful question and a listening ear that is fully present. Although it is a simple act, it may very well be the most powerful act of caring, one which has the potential to turn a life around.
Listen with your whole body.
Receive more than just the words that are being said. Listen for the emotion under the words and feel into the energy of your partner while they speak to you. What is most important to this person right now? How can I be their ally in this moment?
Let your actions speak for themselves.
Show your parter how you feel. Actions often speak much louder than words. When you love someone it is your behavior that shows it.
Go beyond words with your touch.
The power of touch speaks much louder than words. If it is ever difficult for you to express how you feel, then reach out with your hand and touch in a way that speaks for you.
There is an invisible web of subtle connection between people we care about that has us exchanging information and energy all the time. We feel the intentions and thoughts of others across the oceans and over mountains. So bring a little more of your heart and care to your next conversation and notice how it transforms your relationships.
