Those who place emotional fitness as having equal value to intellectual and physical fitness sustain healthier longterm relationships. Too often I’ve encountered elite athletes and academically brilliant, breathtakingly beautiful, financially successful men and women living a life of emotional bankruptcy.
To become a person who is “the WHOLE package” we must master a balanced and respectful relationship between our heads thoughts, our hearts feelings and our bodies actions.
Too often our head and body take priority and our hearts are ignored, our feelings denied or dismissed by ourselves or others.
When head and body (our ego) dominate our lives at the expense of our divine hearts true feelings, we deny ourselves access to the WHOLE package of who we really are and block our future potential. This then shows up in our external world with the inability to attract or sustain an enjoyable relationship with a mate who will consistently offer us their WHOLE package (or give all of themselves) in relationships.
If our physical needs are not being met, we must look firstly at what shape our relationship with our own body is in. Do we respect ourselves physically and treat ourselves accordingly? Are we full of talk and no action? If so this may show up in our external relationships too.
If we feel malnourished or out of balance with intellect, conversation and financial partnership its an alarm to ensure our self care with healthy, honest intellectual habits is all it can be. Do we honour what we truly think or do we edit or dumb ourselves down for approval? If so others may do this in relationships with us as well as we model it as an acceptable way to treat us.
If our emotional needs are not being met externally, perhaps an increase is spending quality time getting support learning how to better honour our hearts truth would be time well spent. When emotional, physical and intellectual self care is robust our confidence increases as we access the best we can be and as a result know we become our own dreamWHOLE package Guess what happens then? Yep …. we attract and sustain relationships that mirror a WHOLE hearted relationship back as we have learned we deserve nothing less.
The Universe won’t provide the WHOLE dream package for us from others until we become willing to give firstly the whole of ourselves the best of ourselves. Only then can we truly and generously share that with others. For we can’t give away what we haven’t got.
An abundantly loving life with ourself, family and partners requires not just a fit body and mind, but also a robust and emotionally fit heart. Being patient, available, loving and open-minded require commitment and honour so let’s work these muscles a little more today starting with ourselves?
One last tip. Our body tires and our head goes insane if we neglect tohonour our deepest truth and it’s often inconvenient guidance from our wise heart!
Lotsa love Cynthia xxx
