This is lesson 22 in the series "Conquering Codependency - Loving Without Leaning" looking at aspects of codependency from a spiritual point of view, and using prayer and meditation for healing.
We learn mainly by trial and error. If we have continual problems relating harmoniously, we begin to ask ourselves why?
After the reasons outside of ourselves are exhausted, we may finally begin to see that we personally need some self-improvement.
We can begin to harmonize our lives by adopting positive attitudes, thoughts and actions - which leads to improved relationships.
Two relating harmoniously, equally autonomous in the relationship, allows peaceful, easeful living. Personal harmony allows easy relationships in all aspects of living.
“May we align ourselves with harmony
Like the blending of notes in beautiful music.
As we become conscious of our grace and balance
May we form melodies and symphonies with others
And everything around us.
From our underlying harmony
May the best of ourselves come forth.”
Sit in a quiet place with a journal in hand. Before writing, calm your body and mind with even breathing such as 2 counts to breathe in, and 2 counts to breathe out - continue this pattern without actually saying the counts.
Take a few minutes to close your eyes and visualize yourself having a positive conversation with another. How does that make you feel right now?
Open your eyes and your journal and while still sitting, write down the good feelings you are having thinking about good conversations.
Take a deep breath, stretch, go on with your day and take these positive feelings and thoughts with you into relationship communication.
