How to choose the right life partner listening to your heart (or intuition)?
There are so many things that people will tell you take into consideration when choosing a life partner. Some will say it’s all about compatibility, others will tell you that opposites attract; so who are you to believe? Choosing a partner for life might be one of the few things in life that no one can advise you on and, perhaps, it’s just better to follow your heart. After all, when you get that gut feeling that something is right, who can tell you that you are wrong? If you want to trust in your intuition and let your heart choose your life partner, here are ten things for you to think about.
1. Stop trying to be a stereotype
If you are going to follow your intuition, you may have to stop thinking that you need to have a relationship just like your parents, or any other person for that matter. Your heart may lead you in some unexpected directions and not everyone will approve of your choices. There’s no law that says you have to be a certain type of person, so go your one way and be yourself.
2. Relax and listen to your own thoughts
You won’t hear a thing from your own heart if you don’t calm down and listen to it. Don’t shut out what your instinct is telling you to do and tell yourself that you are just being silly. Listen to those thoughts that you are having, they could well be guiding you in a direction that is right for you.
3. Take heed of your dreams
When you are sleeping, your brain does an amazing job of filing away what you have learned and experienced during the day and making the connections to other information to try and make sense of it all. That’s why your dreams can sometimes ice you insights into what you are really feeling. Write down as much as you can remember about your dreams, as soon as you wake up, because there could be an important message from your subconscious in there somewhere.
4. Take a long walk in the countryside
If you want to hear clearly what your heart is saying, take a long walk in the countryside, far away from the noise and hubbub of everyday life. With nothing but the sound of the birds and the insects in your ears, you will be able to think more clearly and understand better what you really want.
5. Trust yourself
Often, we hear the messages that our intuition is sending us, but we lack the faith in ourselves to listen. If you think back, you will probably find that your gut instinct has served you well in the past, so learn to trust those feelings a bit more. Have faith in your own ability to make the right decisions and don’t rely so much on other people to make them for you.
6. Don’t let other people sway you
There will always be someone who thinks that they know what is best for you, but don’t let other people’s opinion sway you from your course. Listen to what they say, they may have some sound advice for you, but don’t just assume that other people are always right. Choosing a life partner is something that only you can do.
7. Think about how you feel when you are with this person
If your intuition is telling you that a person is right for you, but you have doubts, consider how you feel when you are with them. If you feel happy, safe, and content, when you are with the person in question, then your intuition is probably guiding you in the right direction. It’s natural to have some doubts when making such a big decision, but don’t let those doubts overrule your true underlying feelings.
8. Take note of coincidences
Sometimes, things just seem to fall into place, so don’t ignore that, perhaps there is a reason why this is happening. From how you first met this person, to how he seems to know just what you like, is it just a coincidence that all this seems to be working out, or could there be more to it than that?
9. Pay attention to your feelings
If you feel far happier than you have ever felt before and you seem to be enjoying life a lot more – that could be because this new person is in your life, and your heart is telling you that he is the one. There is no scientific formula that will tell you that you have found your life partner, it will just feel right and you will feel great.
10. Don’t ignore it
If it all seems to make sense to you, don’t ignore your intuition. There are no guarantees when it comes to love and, yes, it could all go wrong, but if you ignored your heart, you may be left wondering “what if?” for many years to come.
