Ten  characteristics of the conscious marriage

(Imago  Connections e-newsletter, May 2009)
 

1. Partners in a conscious relationship recognize that the purpose of their relationship is to heal their childhood wounds. The basic principle of a conscious relationship is intentionality.

2. Partners in a conscious relationship educate each other about their childhood wounds. In a conscious relationship, partners exchange unconditional gifts.

3. Partners in a conscious relationship accept each otherís absolute separateness, their unique way of perceiving reality, and the sacredness of each otherís inner world. In a conscious relationship, partners are separate but equal. Dialogue is the core of communication.

4. Partners in a conscious relationship keep all the energy that belongs in the relationship within its bounds. In a conscious relationship, there are no exits.

5. Partners in a conscious relationship communicate their needs and desires to each other in constructive ways. In a conscious relationship, there is no criticism.

6. Partners in a conscious relationship accept all of each otherís feelings, especially anger. In a conscious relationship, anger is expressed by appointment only.

7. Partners in a conscious relationship learn to own their own negative traits. In a conscious relationship both partners are responsible for and carry all aspects of themselves.

8. Partners in a conscious relationship develop their own lost strengths and abilities instead of relying on their partners to make up for what is missing or lost in themselves. In a conscious relationship each partner calls the other to wholeness.

9. Partners in a conscious relationship develop their own contra-sexual energy and encourage the development of their partnerís contra-sexual energy. In a conscious relationship each partner strives toward androgyny.

10. Partners in a conscious relationship are able and willing to direct their excess energies to the world outside their relationship. In a conscious relationship partners care for others and the world.
