Be present to connect intimately
Reaching a deeper level of intimacy is a desire many partners have. Even couple that consider themselves happy, often desire to reach a deeper level of intimate connection.
Learn how to be present can be a great way to move in that direction. When I use the term 'presence' I mean the open attitude, heart connected to heart stand, where both partners show up with their truth and hold space for each other's truth.
In this space there is no judgment, just love. The kind of love that we often refer to as unconditional: love because we are made of love and we surrender to our most essential nature. Simply that.
The main reason we don't flow in this presence state when together with our partner, is fear of rejection. Presence is such a vulnerable place where we show up as we are and with what we feel. Often we fear it could go wrong and create incredible pain. To avoid this fear, however, we keep also de bliss of intimate connection at a distance.
How could you make a first step towards more intimate connection with your partner?
Talk to your partner about your desire for more intimate connection, explain why this is important for you and ask how your partner feels about it. By addressing your fears you disarm them.
If your partner is on board you can think together on how to make the first step. Even just talking about this is creating more closeness. Looking each other in the eyes as you connect heart to heart and stay with what is your truth in that moment could be another way to get even more emotionally connected and intimate.
