Our lives are implicitly woven in relationships, dating back to our birth and many spiritual practitioners can relate, when I say that relationships exist even beyond the physical being. Establishing warmth and oneness in the many opportunities that are presented in our lives is something that we all seek. Every relationship is an energy, that we have chosen as part of soul contracts and those relationships present themselves when our soul is ‘ready’ – which means our energies are now in sync with that energy and feel drawn towards it emotionally, sexually, mentally, desirously to fulfill their(relationship)purpose.
Children are great relationship builders. They operate from the core consciousness which is love, acceptance, peace and giving. Hence you may find children are adaptable in changing environments. To explain how children adapt, I would like to give a small example. Due to certain situations, we have been moving our house yearly from one suburb to another, which meant choosing a new kinder for my son in a new suburb.

As relationships are living energy, we exchange energies and auras, see strengths and weakness in each other’s personality more clearly. Depending on our beliefs of what we think is right or wrong, we start judging each other. This causes the love to be suppressed. In any relationship, when the two beings are in tune with each other’s hearts, the energies flow freely bringing comfort and understanding between each other. If one of them is vibrating higher than the other, there happens to be congestion or stimulation of the heart chakra. In such case, the lower vibrating person may become hostile, and as a reaction the higher vibrating one becomes resentful. This is a vicious cycle due to clogged energies and heart chakras being out of sync. The relationship starts going through turbulence of power/fear/resentment.
As soon as this problem is identified, start healing by flushing out the negative,…
