In our book, The Conscious Wedding Handbook, How to Create Authentic Ceremonies That Express Your Love, we offer many exercises to help you grow your illuminated relationship. On page 37 we offer a process for you to do with your partner that is simple but very powerful. It offers you a chance to affirm that you have choosen each other.
Relationships offer an oppportunity for each individual to grow, especially if there is support from your Beloved. Your partner witness and affirms your ups and downs, without judgement. It’s a miracle!
We hope you will benefit from this quick exercise.
Prelude: Look at your partner and say to yourself, “Yes!” Do it again, and again, and again. You can do this silently, or you can look at each other straight on and exchange these affirmations, alternately softly and loudly.
Now look your partner in the eye and say, “I choose relationship- with you!” Your partner silently affirms the “Yes”, then says, “I choose relationship- with you!” back to you. You then silently affirm, “Yes!” Feel what happens when you affirm choice.
When two people do this on their own, without our benign supervision, they report embarrassment after the first few exchanges. Persist over that hump. Accept that it’s an artificial setup, and enjoy what happens after a minute into this exercise.”
I hope that you enjoyed this exercise. If you are interested in experiencing more conscious exercises, our book is full of wonderful ways to connect with your partner to create an Illuminated Relationship. These moments of choice can rerinforce your love to help you discover Divine Love itself!
