“Couples in conscious relationships recognise that the committed partnership is a remarkable structure for healing and growth. As partners excavate the past and learn about one another – their unmet needs and lifelong desires, vulnerabilities, wounds, strengths and resources – they can begin to work cooperatively to bring their unconscious directives into consciousness” (Imago International website).
Commitment is needed from both partners to work as fully on the relationship as possible. Taking full ownership for what I can do to make this relationship healthier and better. How do I need to ‘show up’ for my partner or spouse that will bring out the best in them. How can I bring ‘safety’ to my relationship. Doing my 100% of my 50% towards my relationship.
All of the above takes commitment and an investment of time, energy, giving, self-awareness, listening, sharing, vulnerability and compassion. A commitment to replace judgement with curiosity and ‘cross’ the invisible bridge to my partner or spouse’s ‘world’. A commitment to doing the ‘work’ to move this relationship towards a more conscious and connected relationship where there is growth, healing and compassion.
Imago relationship therapy offers a route to such a loving and connected relationship but it takes commitment!
