When a woman supports a man in his need for freedom, to follow his mission and purpose in life, then he in turn wants to provide for, guide and protect his loved ones. He deepens in his masculinity and then this allows his woman to safely relax more into her feminine nature. The polarity then becomes like the yin/yang symbol, a union of opposites. The masculine can also support his partner in living her gifts to the fullest.
In the busy world we live in it can be difficult for each partner to find the time to nourish their sexual essence. However, it is very important that each supports the other to have time OUT…men to do what inspires and supports them, especially having time alone or with other men, and women to have time to nourish and fulfil their need for feminine company, pleasure, nourishment and creative activities. Couples can create balance in their lives so that this can happen, which deepens trust in the relationship. If either partner begins to feel burdened and that they have no freedom, particularly the masculine, then he may withdraw himself in other ways…eg. becoming distant or unavailable.
Couples can benefit and indeed flourish through nurturing the ‘wellness’ of their relationship with regular commitment to counselling or therapy as a couple. Relationships take work and awareness and this type of supportive space is doing the preventative/strengthening work, developing communication and understanding. The healing that happens through therapy creates a platform of trust and awareness that becomes a solid base to play and explore sexually and spiritually. To cultivate the Yoga of Love.
So increase and enhance your own essence, and support your partner to do the same. Clean up individual and joint issues and misunderstandings, possibly through counselling, coaching or therapy. Make time for practicing connection, breathing, opening and deepening together.
