Life can be hectic. We live in a fast paced, digital age where it can be really difficult to switch off and make time for yourself or close encounters with the one you love. Introducing Tantric practices into your life can help you to be present in the moment and enjoy life with a renewed exuberance.
Tantra is the practice of being in a full relationship with life, a way of embracing life fully and living your whole life orgasmically. Tantra teaches you to become fully open. To invite Tantra into your life can mean learning how to open your senses, your awareness, your emotion and live in the present moment, which in turn leads to us gaining a deeper sense of feeling, merges our minds and bodies and allows us to gain a deep sense of who we truly are.
Introducing Tantra into your life means that with practice, your relationship with yourself and others can become more awake and alive. This process doesn’t fade, it just gets stronger the more you practice and soon life becomes more positive, enjoyable and blissful on every level. I understand that when you are weighed down by the weight of work, stress and home-life problems that it can be hard to contemplate introducing anything new in your life, but I urge you to try these three simple tantra practices and see what a difference they can make to your life and relationship.
These Tantric practices will awaken you to yourself, to your partner, to love, and to the concept that life can be blissful. Indeed through Tantra you will come to learn that bliss is our natural state and how we are supposed to lead our lives.
Give these practices a try in your relationship, and watch your connection flourish.
1. Every morning take time to share with your partner.
Yes, I know you need to get the children to school, get to work and that your inbox is full of unanswered e-mails, but take a deep breath and take a few minutes out for this beautiful practice.
Each morning, before the daily rush begins, practice telling each other five things you like about the time you have spent together, either that morning or the previous evening. This is a way of reminding yourself of the thing you love about your partner and strengthens your connection and is a loving and positive way to begin the day.
2. Take time to share
When we get busy and stressed it is really easy to focus upon the pressing matters of work, bills and family commitments and sometimes we all forget to share. It’s so easy to become wrapped up in our own turmoil, but it is important that you continue to share with your partner.
Make sure that you make time every week to check-in with your partner and explain what is happening in your life. What you are working on, what is important to you, what challenges you are facing and what your goals are etc. By having this connection time; it allows you to tune into your own process, share with your partner, enhance understanding and ultimately create a deeper connection with yourself and the person you love.
3. Don’t let negative niggles take root
All relationships have ups and downs, but by addressing difficulties that arise in a timely fashion you can avoid negativity building and help reduce the risk of major relationship problems taking hold.
Set aside a time each week that is a time to come together with your partner and discuss the uncomfortable, challenging feelings and experiences that are occurring in the relationship. It’s really important to set aside this time and space for you to be honest about what you’re struggling with in yourself and in your relationship.
It can be difficult to talk about things that are challenging and whilst it can be an uncomfortable process it is an absolute lifesaver for a relationship because it creates a safe space to move through challenges and prevents things being bottled up and surfacing in a partner, being upset, resentful, angry or hurt.
When you do this practice emotions can run high so…
- Try to steer clear of blame.
- Try to talk about how you feel such as ‘’Ive been feeling’’, rather than statements such as ‘’you make me feel’.
- Don’t exceed an hour, you’ll just end up emotionally drained and unable to listen properly
- Make sure each partner is allowed the time and space to speak.
It’s important to listen and accept. The most important thing is to be committed to being on the same team as your partner.
All intimate relationships encounter difficulties at some stage, but the important thing is to make time and stay connected. If you can strengthen your communication and grant your relationship time and space to work through your difficulties, you will come out the other side even stronger.
