What Does an Authentic Connection Feels Like?
When you work with yourself on both the mental and spiritual levels, you must become aware of the fact that all your relationships start changing. Some of them naturally dissolve, as they don’t fit in your energetic range anymore. Instead, you start connecting with a different kind of people who are more in alignment with your new mental and emotional patterns.
It’s Like Having a New Filter for Spiritual Connections
As you progress in your spiritual journey, you tune more and more into your true values, needs, and your mission in life. Being open and having the courage to recognize both your faults and your potential empowers you to observe them in others too. It’s like having a new filter. A more sensitive and accurate one.
An Open, Mature, and Mutual Sharing
Meditation and self-observation help you tune in to your body and connect with your deepest feelings, both positive and negative. Therefore, your relationships with people become more authentic expressions of your inner world. At the same time, they become more transparent. Vulnerability and knowing yourself let you connect with others on the most profound levels. Hence the communication grows into an open, mature, and mutual sharing. That is the first sign of an authentic connection between two people.
“We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness, and affection.” ( Brené Brown)
Moreover, being in a relationship with a spiritual person helps you evolve even more—not because things are always smooth sailing; on the contrary, you evolve because it continually stretches your limits. This kind of connection empowers you and at the same time challenges you to understand vulnerability as an essential ingredient of love and a valuable relationship.
When it comes to spiritual evolution, I would use a sort of disclaimer, something like: “It’s a one-way road. You’ll never be able to undo the profound transformations that will occur within you. There are a lot of gratifications, but also a lot of challenges. Your insights and understandings of the world will forever change. Your relationships will deeply change. You’ll have strong ups and downs, but also you will come to know the greatest happiness and fulfillment! Are you ready?”
What Gives the Connection a Profound Dimension
However, when you gradually awake from the spiritual point of view, your inner radar naturally detects the incongruences and the denials of your partner. You feel not only when he is not honest with you, but also when he lies to himself. Both of them hurt deeper than anything else because they are a disconnection from your real potential. Nevertheless, two emotionally mature partners have the strength to overcome this kind of obstacles.
“The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your minds, your hearts, and your souls, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together.” Barbara De Angelis
Sometimes things become harder, but this is what gives the process a profound and authentic dimension. When the mutual desire is to be in alignment with one another, two people can experience a rare, strong, and fulfilling relationship.
