Liberating Partnerships – Drawing on Grace
Several years ago (in 1995), Eddie and I were brought together by our Beloved Guru, Sri Satya Sai Baba. Little did we know that we would one day be co-creating LiberatingTouch® , writing books, facilitating seminars, and connecting with so many extraordinary people.
Getting here was not easy and for the first 9 years we were not sure if we could sustain a relationship let alone be partners. What kept us going was the knowledge that we were put together by God (the Perfection of Love and Truth). We had to learn the art of communication, sacrifice, patience, trust and understanding. Through our tussles and adventures together we developed greater insight into the personalities we had adopted, the desires and fears that lead us away from each other and the attachments that muddied our vision. The next 9 years were easier, still challenging at times, but we had more clarity, willingness and humility to let go and stay open. As I write this, I wonder what the next 9 years have in store for us. It’s very exciting.
Eddie and I have noticed that when we come together, we form a conduit to access Grace. The Grace we experience manifests as wisdom, abundance, understanding and the means for Self-Realisation (for example LiberatingTouch®). We draw and share that Grace. Everyone we connect with in turn can use this for themselves and others. They too then create liberating partnerships and draw on Grace.
Nowadays we work with people that are intent on creating Liberating Partnerships. When working with couples Eddie and I focus on helping them find ways to listen, and dialogue. We show them how to use Jin Shin Jyutsu and LiberatingTouch®, which can act as a healing balm. Our first goal when working with a couple is to find something that is relaxing for both partners and something that they both enjoy doing, before we dive into their stressful stories. We explain that the way we work is for partners to discover what makes them happy and what saddens them and find ways to heal in order that they can continue to grow. After the sessions they either grow closer or they grow in different directions, the focus is on self-knowledge, awareness, freedom, friendship and self-fulfilment.
One of the most difficult challenges in any relationship is that of accepting each other’s limitations. When we accept these limitations somehow, we open the door to limitless honesty, love and possibility. This is the paradox of all relationship.
Here are 4 vital requirements for creating a Liberating Partnership:
- Letting go of Expectation (Developing Understanding)
- Sharing Responsibility
- Communicating Honesty, Integrity and Trust
- Self Confidence
Yes, you are going to be, feel and think differently (and sometimes at odds) from your partner, that is a given, what draws the miraculous and mysterious magic into a relationship is the inner yearning for UNITY, oneness with Love and Truth. At the heart of our partnership is the undying Love that longs to know and merge in Truth. The song the river sings on its way to the ocean.
Love, love and more love, Ranjana
