We have the opportunity to develop many kinds of relationships with Family, Friends, Extended Family, Children, Spouse, Companion and Colleagues. Enjoy the opportunities to express true kindness to all that you meet or currently have relationships with. Developing strong and genuine relationships provide companionship or a shoulder to cry on, or a partner to laugh with, or people to collaborate with.
The need and desire for relationships are universal, we were all meant to cultivate and enjoy many relationships and as we create synergy within the human race, abundant joy, purpose, and serenity will resonate.
The organic desire to nourish a relationship with another is an intrinsic reminder that we are all here to help, love, and serve each other…to be a constant support and a gentle haven of kindness to one and all on our journey and path. When we recognize the divine and simple understanding that we are all more alike than we are different, it is then that we have truly understood the reason for our existence.
There are several types of relationships that can be included in the Relationship section of your LifeVision. These will vary according to your specific situation. Here are some thoughts and examples of relationships you may want to include in you Relationships LifeVision.
Spouse: We search the world over to find a perfect mate…one with whom we can share mutual love, acceptance, success, failure, solace, and satisfaction. One with whom we intend to share the rest of our life. Sometimes, not long after marriage before we find ourselves caught up in the busyness of life. We begin concentrating on what we want to accomplish individually instead of focusing on the most important part of our marriage…our spouse.
Tending to this relationship through communication, appreciation, and sharing feelings is vital. Include in your Relationships LifeVision how you see the perfect relationship with your spouse. This is the section where you can be incredibly outward focused. Because this LifeVision is about you, it will include all the things that you can BE and DO to be the perfect mate.
What if you’re not married? Well….do you want to be? If so, consider this sample that incorporates attracting the perfect companion into your life.
“I have the perfect companion who I love unconditionally. She is so beautiful. We share the same love for health, outdoor activities, personal development and spirituality. We have a deep connection physically, emotionally and spiritually. We share the same financial philosophies and abundant paradigm. She is kind and generous. She is so supportive of my sobriety, which makes it easy for me to focus my energy on love and happiness in our relationship. We are supportive of each other’s businesses and the principles that we teach our clients. We push each other to excel and grow in life and business. We compliment each other and make each other better. We have the perfect combination of independence, freedom, respect and reliance in our relationship. She loves me for who I am. We have engaging conversations where we teach each other exciting things that we are learning in our lives. Each week we have a scheduled “date night” where we go out to a nice dinner, movie or enjoy a fun activity together. This allows us to spend quality time together, focusing on us as a couple. She is my best friend. I attract this person by exemplifying all of these qualities in my own life.”
Children: Spending quality time with their children is a goal of many parents. We must create…not find….time for our children. As part of the Relationship section of your LifeVision, if you have children, powerfully suggest to your mind through your writing all the ways you can be a better parent; spending more time together, showing love and affection, training and teaching, and supporting.
This section regarding children may start with a general section. This may include the kind of a parent you want to be for your child. Next, write a small paragraph for your child or each child, mention them by name. In this paragraph, state a few qualities about this child that you particularly admire. This helps your mind focus on the positive aspects of the child. Then, write several sentences about what you can do to be a good parent along with anything specific you would like to work on in the relationship. Be careful not to write statements that describe the kind of child you want them to be, but rather the kind of parent you want to be that will inspire them to be productive and happy individuals.
Extended Family: Include aspects of relationships with siblings; parents, grandparents and aunts/uncles/cousins that you feel would be appropriate. This is especially fitting if the relationship is strained and needs a new perspective to create the ideal bond.
Social- Friends, Colleagues and Peers: The social relationships we enjoy with our peers, friends or colleagues are essential. The benefits and value of these relationships bring are reciprocity and commitment between individuals who see themselves more or less as equals. These relationships can provide an emotional resource both for having fun and support in times of worry or sadness. Invite these relationships into your life.
When writing this section, describe yourself as a warm, loving, vulnerable, approachable, open and authentic person and watch the miracles happen in your life. You can write this section with a broad stroke of what you would like these relationships to look like or specifically name someone you would like to build or strengthen a friendship with. Include the ways you would like to be with these social relationships. You can also include here any social skills you would like to develop. For example: If you are shy or introverted, visualize yourself as being confident in social situations. Maybe you’d like to be a better conversationalist or be great at remembering names. You can become anything you visualize clearly and in detail.
