Can you read minds? Your answer right now may be no, but something strange starts to happen in relationships. Have you ever been with someone who you connected with on such a profound level that all you had to do was look at them, and you knew exactly what they were thinking? In the process of getting to know someone, our connection becomes so deep that we can start topredict their moods and thoughts. So in relationships, we become mind readers, right?! Well, before you quit your day job and start placing bets on next year's Super Bowl, let's consider that maybe your clairvoyance, even in regards to your partner, isn't as spot on as you think.
It's easy to forget that, even though we may nail it a lot of the time, we can't actually read our partner's mind. Bummer. I wish I could tell you that's where your magic crystal ball comes into the picture, but unfortunately, for all their powers, crystals can only lend us a hand in guiding the fixes we need to make; the real work in relationships is still up to us. The good news is, once you retire your amateur career as a relationship psychic, there is a fairly easy way to get into the mind of your partner—communication!
Communication is key.
Instead of assuming you know what they're thinking and vice versa, communicate your thoughts and see how they align with your partner's. It can be surprising to know how in or out of sync you are on issues where you assumed the opposite. Communication is key to avoiding the kinds of frustration and resentment that bubble up when one person in a relationship is feeling unheard or unappreciated. Always remember to voice the things you like about your partner. Little compliments can have a huge impact on their mood and self-esteem, as well as reassuring them of the strength of your bond.
Level criticisms with compliments.
It's as important to remark on the good parts of your relationship as on the parts that need work. Focusing communication solely on negative aspects can lead to a skewed perception of everything being bad. Level criticisms with compliments. The feminine energy in us needs to talk and express itself, while the masculine energy tends to thrive more off of encouragement rather than nagging. Of course you know how awesome your partner is, but it helps for them to hear you say it every now and then. With these needs in mind, you can use crystals to facilitate the goals of your exchange so that your communication is always crystal clear.
A Crystal Ritual for You & Your Partner
Things You Need:
• 1 Kambaba Jasper—this green stone is about forgiveness, letting go of what does not serve you in your heart
• 1 Rhodonite—this pink stone is more about opening your heart.
The black parts in each stone represent what bothers us about each other—the pet peeves. The pinks and greens allow us to open our heart and see all the love. This ritual taps back into the beginning of a relationship, when all you could see was the good, the bliss, and the happiness. You looked through the world with rose-colored glasses. Let's bring that divine essence back in.
- Cleanse your space with sage or palo santo.
- Select a stone. The Kambaba Jasper is more about forgiveness, letting go of what does not serve you in your heart, and Rhodonite is more about opening your heart to receiving infinite love.
- While holding your stone, gaze into each other's eyes.
- Begin to talk to each other.
- What do you like about the other person?
- What do you see in the other person?
- What made you fall in love with the other person?
- Continue this process until you feel called to stop.
