Relationship wrap up

Mind KEY / Health  / Relationship wrap up

Relationship wrap up

Over the last month, the blog here at Mind Key has focused on relationships.  Relationships with yourself, your family, your significant other and relationships with your higher self.  Each type is drastically different.  How you relate to yourself is not the same as how you relate to your family, your partner or your spiritual connection, but each type is connected by the basics; honesty, love, kindness and work.  Relationships don’t just spring into being (except for the relationship with self…  That one’s kind of a given… but that doesn’t mean it’s easy, in fact, it can be one of the most difficult when it comes to honesty.)
Danielle and the girls

Relationship with self week brought us several insightful blogs.  In Motherhood – The Ultimate relationship with self, Mind Key trail blazer DanielleRose talked about her eye opening experience as a mother of two girls as it related to her relationship with herself.  Danielle describes how hard it was, and is, to maintain a relationship with herself and continue her internal journey of self-discovery while caring for those for whom she’d give up that life.  I talked about the importance of what comes after the words “I am” in Positive Self Talk.

During romantic relationship week, I talked about how my husband of 20 years and I still enjoy time together, making plans to do new things and working hard to keep it fresh.  Keep the Spark Alive tells that while not every “date night” is perfect, neither is every relationship.  Guest blogger Sarah Loukos talked about how important it is to stay true to yourself and your path, no matter what you might perceive to be in your way.  In I love you but we can’t be together today she talks about the effects that extramarital affairs have on the personal psyche and some of the advice she gives to her clients during readings.

For family week, Mind Key columnist Lisa Avila, MD wrote about Managing Difficult Family Members and gave us four steps to follow to make interactions easier, or at least to ease some of the stress.  Blogger Tamara Rokicki writes about her experience in Thriving in a Blended Family.”Its all about balance,” she says.

Higher self week was a bit more fluid as there are so many different belief systems.  One week wasn’t anywhere near long enough to cover them all, but we delved into several.  In Angels are there – An interview with Jacqui Geary we explored the Mind Key interview of Jacqui Geary of Trinity Metaphysical Center and Gift Shop in Hamburg, NJ.  She talked about her relationship with Angels and how she feels protected by them.  She advises her clients to call the angels into their lives and to find the comfort that they offer.  In Spirit Animals/Power Animals, MK Columnist Vera Remes told us of her Spirit Animal relationship with her camel and how she feels that even once you find your Spirit Animal, your work is not done.

There’s no real conclusion here.  Relationships are awesome, difficult, lovely, strange, comforting and worth it.

    I think my favorite blog this last month was the post by new Columnist Lisa Avila about love not being about need. We need food and water, we need human interaction, we need shelter. We want love and acceptance. There's a big difference. Good blog, Lisa.

    I agree. This was a great post. But I maintain the significance of recognizing that we do NEED love. We don't necessarily need a relationship.
