Couples Meditation For A More Intimate Bond With Your Partner

La práctica de yoga

Couples meditation or partners meditation is a fantastic way to get closer to your significant other on a more intimate level. Similar to couples therapy, it can work to fine tune the communication between two partners.

We already know meditation has positive impacts on our individual stress levels, attention span, our ability to feel compassion, mental health, mindfulness, and our physical bodies. But by practicing mindful meditation on a regular basis with your significant other, you’ll also be able to reap those benefits in regards to your relationship. This practice is popular as a conflict-resolution method and for identifying toxic factors in your relationship. It allows couples to explore new ways to solve problems, create communication guidelines, and make reasonable compromises.

However, it doesn’t necessarily need to be practiced only during tough times. Meditation works to forge new paths of communication to establish a team allegiance, or strengthen the one you’ve already established. By adding it to your routine, you will be reminded of the bigger picture, feel more level-headed, and form a more spiritual connection with your partner.

Meditation for Couples Removes Negativity And Distractions

There’s no doubt relationships can get bogged down from the day-to-day stresses of life. Most of us are guilty of taking bad days out on our partners, or allowing work overload to kill our sex drive. Couples meditation combats that by focusing on removing these distractions.

By feeling the floor underneath your thighs and the air moving in and out of your lungs as you breathe slow and deep, you will begin to feel more grounded and at peace. Mediation will start to feel like your happy place. So, just imagine sharing that blissful headspace with your partner. Any negative energy surrounding your relationship is being wiped away each time you meditate together.

Couples Meditation Opens You Up

Couples meditation opens the door to a spiritual connection with your partner that aids in various aspects of a relationship. It helps couples speak openly with each other without fear of rejection or ridicule. Couples learn to create new guidelines of communication to satisfy their unique dynamic. And, by establishing these guidelines, you’ll feel in control of your relationship because of a mutual understanding of what is expected.  

This practice also helps with issues of trust. By opening up through meditation, you allow yourself to become more vulnerable with your significant other. This vulnerability also has physical benefits; when your partner makes you feel safe and secure at your most vulnerable, you’ll be able to feel an increase of sexual pleasure. And chances are, this will lead to an increase in libido due to that boosted satisfaction.

Meditation for Lovers Makes You More Aware

Becoming more mindful is a tremendous perk that stems from the practice of couples mediation.

Mentally, it allows couples to understand their partner on a higher level, creating a spiritual understanding of emotions, rather than superficial ones. By creating a feeling of oneness with the universe together, you can translate your partner’s mood, which can potentially help derail arguments in the future.

These emotions also make their way into sexual acts, giving partners a more spiritual understanding of lovemaking. It also aids in the ability to read your partner during intercourse, which paves the way for greater sexual satisfaction.

Physically, by becoming more aware through the regular practice of couples meditation, individuals will feel sensations on a more extreme degree. You’ll be able to fully appreciate your partner’s touch and begin to understand the power of your own touch. The exercise of being aware of each breathe in and out during meditation carries over to sexual experiences and essentially trains you to feel every little sensation you and your partner experience in the present moment.

Couples Meditation Techniques

There are many different meditation techniques that couples use in order to become more connected to one another on an intimate level. Here are some of the most common approaches:

  1. Mindful Touching: Meditation that concentrates on light touches to and from your partner.
  2. Sensuality Meditation: A practice of experimenting and being mindful of all five senses.
  3. Meditation To Channel Sexual Energy Through Your Chakras: Using the chakras to channel sexual energy.
  4. Couples Meditation on Oneness: A nonsexual meditation that incorporates voice and focuses on emotion.

Tools To Make It A Habit Together

Couples meditation may seem like an overwhelming undertaking in such a busy world, but there are many ways couples can easily begin meditating together on a regular basis in order to take their relationship to a more spiritual level. Some couples may feel comfortable beginning their meditation with just a little personal research, but many need external guidance. The good news is, there are a lot of resources to get started.

Meditation apps are very common nowadays and there is one for everyone. Gaia’s catalog of meditation videos has has a multitude of choices catering to just about any mindfulness-related need you can imagine from respected contemplative masters. If you and your partner spend a week or two with each meditation practice, meditate daily, and commit, you can discover the hidden power laced within ancient practices. Results may come quickly or they may come in time. As long as you make space to sit down and tune in, you are doing it right.

And, If you’re looking for a total life changing experience and can afford some vacation time, a meditation retreat may also be a good choice for you and your partner, as it will immerse you fully into the spiritual lifestyle and help you to make meditation part of your everyday routine.

How to Manifest a Sacred Relationship


By: Marcus and Sheila Gillette  |  July 7th, 2018

The following interview was facilitated by Marcus Gillette and channeled by Sheila Gillette. Sheila acts as a medium for the THEO group, 12 archangelic beings, speaking in one voice, here to be mentors and teachers to humanity. Speaking directly through Sheila, THEO is here to guide humanity during this unprecedented shift to a higher state of consciousness.

 

Marcus: Thank you, THEO. It’s great to have you with us today. What does sacred relationship mean to you?

THEO: It is that fulfillment of sacredness within – that recognition of the divinity that you are, the beauty, the uniqueness of your individuality that which is the light of your soul. It is that sacred aspect of your being… that soul that is connected to God… the God-self.

M: Share with us the importance of the relationship unto the self?

T: As one recognizes that divinity, that uniqueness of the being, then that is what is radiated out into the world from a peaceful place (not an angst, not that projection of fears and angers) that which is the resonance of the wholeness within; meaning, that there has been a satisfaction on all aspects of one’s soul to allow unconditional loving presence.

M: Let’s go a little deeper on manifesting a romantic relationship.

T: Romantic relationships can be attracted from very many ways, and most often there is in romance the attraction first that is a lustful one or an energetic connectivity that allows you to recognize one. There is a resonance. It is much like your auric field combining another. There is a vibration that then sparks a lustfulness that leads to romance, but also that which is romantic has to do with your interactions and your sensitivities to another and that awareness with them and with yourself.

You think alike, and you are alike in many ways, for like attracts like. So, if you are in a relationship that you are viewing something that you feel inappropriate, what inside of you is being mirrored to you? There are many facets to romance; but, first off, it is that magnetism, that hormone-pheromone expression and experience, and then underneath that is the recognition of the soulful connectivity.
