We are living energy vibration. And, this vibration has a name; we call it soul or spirit. Enhancing the spiritual connection is the key to healthy relationships. You can do it.
Most of the strategies for developing relationships focus on the outward effects, such as communication skills and cultivating similar interests. There is no doubt that these tools can help to some extent. However, the real key to healthy relationships is strengthening the spiritual link. It is something many ancient sages teach.
Building with Intrinsic Soul Energy
What exactly is this energy? It has nothing to do with elements of personality, our self-preservation, social or sexual instinct. It is the connection with our soul or “The Observer” of our awareness.
The Observer is the person you talk to inside your head. It is that aspect of awareness the experiences your dreams. This experience is not a pure reflection of who we are because all experience happens within the mind, and Ego connects our bodies to consciousness. Still, behind this tainted window of observation sits our Observer, our soul or spirit.
The Observer is our most basic intrinsic energy. It is a unique vibrational signature that gives us a singular expression of awareness. If you know how to build this energy connection, you will create strong relationships.
Spiritual Energy Between Two People
If we want to strengthen the connection, both people need to be on the same vibrational frequency. Thankfully, there are tools available to do just that. A mantra is one tool that transcends the Ego level of the mind. So, using almost any mantra will align people together to some extent.
We can start relationships on external interests or intrinsic bonds. If we create a connection based on interests, these things can change. Hobbies and jobs can make opportunities to meet people, but these are not always permanent.
An intrinsic bond goes beyond emotional or intellectual interests. A truly intrinsic connection is a spiritual bond; it’s an energy connection. An easy way to create or enhance this kind of energy is with a mantra.
If we use our inherent spiritual energy to anchor the relationship, it does not matter if there are differences in opinion. It doesn’t matter what religious or philosophical beliefs each of you may have. The right mantra takes us beyond these superficial issues and strengthens the bond on the level of consciousness.
When people sit and meditate together, this too is a way of aligning on an intrinsic level. Then if they are using the same mantra, this increases the alignment. When groups of people meditate, they can create a positive ripple effect in the immediate society. It’s known as the Maharishi Effect, so named after Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who was the first to bring awareness of this effect to the West.
Modern culture capitalizes on our instincts to sell us things. When most people think of energy between two people, they equate it with sexual attraction. But, this is not the kind of energy that we are referring to here. Our instinctual attraction is often fleeting and inconsistent. I can bring people together initially, but there must be more to the relationship than just attraction for it to become a lasting bond. Perhaps this is why divorce rates are high. Relationships built on superficial appeal do not last.
The spiritual energy between two people is a much greater force than physical attraction. It is possible to cultivate this connection, but often those with whom we have a soul or spirit link are everpresent. The moment we meet them, we realize that there is a kinship that already exists. Some people call this a soulmate connection. However, this too has been morphed to mean a romantic attachment, but this interpretation is incorrect. Someone who is a soulmate is often a friend, associate, or colleague.
Strengthening The Spiritual Energy Between Two People
If you want to enhance the spiritual connection with another person, there are several things you can do. The glue that holds any group together starts with strengthening the bonds between each person.
1) Mediate at the same time. Using the same meditation together enhances our connection with others. When you become grounded through meditation, you naturally improve the relationship with those engaging in the practice. We recommend Japa or Transcendental Meditation because it is the best process to reach the 4th state of pure consciousness. Some mantras have a dramatic effect on the spiritual energy between two people.
2) Symutainously engage in other spiritual training or practices. Shared knowledge creates common bonds. The Enneagram, the Repeating Question Exercise, and Comparative Analysis are all excellent tools for this goal. So too are many forms of the healing arts.
3) Volunteer together. Find a humanitarian or environmental cause you both share. You always receive double the return in positive energy when helping others. When you help, you are expressing kindness and compassion. When you do this together, you are building the spiritual energy bond.
