Welcome to the March 2020 monthly relationship inspiration from Marriage works.
I’ve come straight from Yoga. Where my teacher got us to close our eyes and see what you don’t see, with your body, your mind and the people around you.
I loved this. Super hard in warrior three, standing in a t shape balancing on one leg. Wobbly!
It’s easy to miss what we see every day as we share our lives with our partners.
Familiarity cheats us. We get ever so slightly lazy in our thinking. Our mind leaps to the past, assumptions quickly jump in.
So I am asking you this month, in all your relationships to “See what you don’t see and hear what you don’t hear”.
One vital tool Chris my husband and I use in our couple coaching is the Imago couple dialogue’s mirroring.
Mirroring is where we reflect back our partners sentences and tone, to ensure acknowledgement and validation.
It’s pretty much saying repeating our partners words back to them, with the same energy. It’s magical being acknowledged this way.
When your partner does this for you it’s super supportive.
Use this mirroring tool. Perhaps staying with the most important words.
Chris and also found this couples quiz. We had great fun last night.
Good news we know each other well. I still learnt something new.
You answer the questions and see how it fits.
I chose at random one of the cards to read out on : Marriage Works YouTube Channel
Listen if you want my answers. Here are the questions as promised in the video:
“How well do you know each other?”
Which celebrity does your partner think they most look like?
Who tells the best jokes?
Who takes longer to get ready?
What is your partners favorite band of all time? I got this wrong it’s not Led Zeppelin! https://youtu.be/NrBNOe15_qQ
Does your partner prefer cats or dogs?
Love to hear how you found this cute quiz. Please share your answers to encourage us!
