A relationship can be an exciting path to the unknown. It offers an ever-present opportunity to grow – a path to spiritual transformation, mutual discovery and, ultimately, the divine when partners open to one another.
The concept of spirituality derives from “spiritus,” meaning vitality or breath of life. Like an electric charge, our soul awakens when we’re connected to that force. The more we’re aligned to it, the stronger and more alive our soul is. We tap into this power each time we express ourselves authentically.
Consider spiritual concepts, such as faith, surrender, truth, compassion, and love. As we practice these principals in our relationships, they have a synergistic effect, reinforcing one another and strengthening us.
Faith and surrender
Faith is the first spiritual premise. A relationship with a higher source or higher power, however defined, must be our priority, because when we make someone or something (like an addiction or ambition) more important, we not only live in fear, but we also lose ourselves – our soul.
