Soulful Relationships

Soulful Relationships

We exist through our relationships. They reflect how we relate to the world but more importantly, to ourselves. Shared in the Soulful Writing series, these writing prompts help you explore your relationships more deeply. Raising our consciousness makes change possible - Give yourself the gift of self reflection.

Examining recurring relationship patterns:

  1. Have I had any negative recurring relationship patterns in the past? Have those patterns healed or are they still repeating?
  2. If there was something that I could heal or resolve my relationship pattern, what might it be? (example: acceptance)
  3. What qualities do I consistently judge in others? (how do they reflect on ourselves?
  4. What do I need to communicate and to whom?
  5. Is there anyone I need to ask forgiveness or need to thank?
  6. Is there anyone in my life I need to express love toward? Make amends?
  7. Who or what do I need to forgive, accept or release?
  8. Am I willing to let go of having to be right?
  9. Do I unconditionally accept all of my relationship. Patterns? Am I willing to release the need for them?

To change the world, first change yourself

Think of a person you want to change

Describe 3 things you want to change about them

Without judgement, is there any part of you that is a reflection of those things that you dislike?

Significant Relationships:

  1. If it is true that we choose our parents, why might you have chosen my parents? What have you gained or learned from having them as parents?
  2. How do you feel about you parents? How do you perceive they feel about you?
  3. Is love flowing between you and your parents? If not, what can you do to create healing?
  4. What beliefs about life have you adopted from you parents? Are those beliefs accurate reflections of what you know to be true.

“The greatest catalyst for change in a relationship is complete acceptance of your partner as he or she is, without needing to judge or change them in any way. That immediately takes you beyond ego. All mind games and all addictive clinging are then over. There are no victims and no perpetrators anymore, no accuser and accused. This is also the end of all codependency, of being drawn into somebody else’s unconscious pattern and thereby enabling it to continue. You will then either separate – in love – or move ever more deeply into the Now together – into Being.”― Ekhart Tolle
