It takes us being vulnerable, receptive and honest to truly connect with another person. Vulnerability is simply being open and not hiding behind past hurt, it is the ability to be honest about who you are, with another person to share yourself regardless or whether or not you have been rejected in the past. Just because you were rejected before doesn’t mean you will be again. Just because you rejected someone in the past doesn’t mean you will reject this new person.
Receptivity is simply having a willingness and an open-mind about getting to know another person, receiving their thoughts, opinions and ideas and being open to receiving love regardless of past hurts.
In order to connect with someone, you need to be completely open without bringing past hurts to the table. Just because you were hurt in the past by someone doesn’t mean this person will also hurt you and vice versa. We learn from our past both positives and negatives, it is important to be grateful for all of our lessons, the good and the bad, it is imperative not to get stuck in the past though.
When we truly have a connection with someone, it sparks a passion within us, we want to spend time with this person, the connection inspires us to be our best self, we want to hear all about their day. We want to know them inside and out, their feelings, thoughts, likes, and dislikes are important to us. We truly become invested in them emotionally mentally and physically. It truly is important to connect with a person who energizes you!
The energy of connection is powerful, it is the beginning of creation. When we link energetically with someone the power to create amplifies. When two or more people put their creative energy toward a common goal, there is a tremendous power, the ability to manifest is by far greater!
If you are in a long term romantic relationship, take inventory of your connection. If you have noticed a disconnect, make the decision to re-ignite it. It will take vulnerability and receptivity to talk honestly with your partner about how you feel and what you think about your connection. Be receptive to their thoughts and feelings as well. Then create a game plan on steps to take to rebuild your connection.
