As you first begin to apply this triangle to yourself and to your relationships, be kind and have patience with the process. The most import thing is acknowledging that change is needed and supporting yourself and those you love to step into Dharma without judgment, or creating more wounding and trauma in life. Belief systems and patterns can be decades old and it requires a Warrior of Love to hold space for change.
The next time you can feel the beginnings of that slippery slope into disharmony, take a look at this triangle and choose 1 aspect to embody. It doesn’t really matter which one it is at first, they are all empowering behaviours and will support you to turn your communicating and relating around! By choosing these behaviours, you are creating space for your partner to step into co-empowerment with you.
If you are accurately listening, your partner can challenge by not being at the effect and your relationship can support you both to higher levels of self-growth. If you are challenging old patterns and beliefs with compassion, your partner can actively listen and your relationship can support you both. If you are supporting and your partner is actively listening, than your relationship can challenge you both to continually step into more maturity and self-responsibility. The dance of co-empowerment is a beautiful thing and as you get more used to using this tool, you will find yourself effortlessly creating harmony in all of your relationships.
It’s time to re-write the story and step into Dharma!
