“Love is a meeting of two souls, fully accepting the dark and the light within each other, bound by the courage to grow through struggle into bliss.” —Author Unknown
In the 13 years (plus many lifetimes!) together, we’ve found 4 main areas that contribute to taking your relationship to the next level. If you’re not thinking, connecting, and communicating in specific ways to your partner, you’ll never truly experience the intimacy it takes to hit #powercouple status.
In this live episode of The Elevated Life®, we share 4 Secrets to Becoming a Power Couple!
If you can’t show up 100% authentically in your relationship, then you can’t show up 100% authentically in life.
Brutal honesty is about developing extreme trust. You should feel that you can expose who you really are and share the pain that you’ve been through.
Ask yourself this: “Where am I lacking honesty in my relationship?” Find an area where you can speak more truth and become more vulnerable. Allow yourself to reveal yourself more fully to your partner.
Intimacy should be a consistent part of your daily routine with your partner. (And no, we’re not just talking about doing the wild thing!)
Intimacy is not just what you do in the bedroom. It’s the way you talk to, think about, and listen to your partner.
The good news is that if you’re making it a consistent practice, your intimacy will build over the years and get better and better.
Throughout the day, think about your partner in a loving way, so that when you walk through the door, you can show them you care rather about their needs rather than instantly sharing all of your troubles.
We all have reasons for our expectations, but if they’re unexpressed, we’ll be continually disappointed. Remember: If your partner doesn’t meet your unspoken expectations, it’s not because they don’t care! It’s because they don’t know what they are!
For example, I absolutely love to send and receive gifts. It is 100% my language. However, when Chris and I first got together, he didn’t know this about me. So Valentine’s Day and my birthday rolled by without any special gifts, and I felt so upset! When I finally expressed my needs and desires to Chris, I was giving him the opportunity to meet my needs.
Set an intention to tell your partner about the things that light you up:
“I want to take more walks.”
“I want to go on more romantic dates.”
“I want to spend more time connecting and talking.”
Another thing to keep in mind is that if you want to receive something, you should give it! Needing something is out of desperation. It always pushes away what we’re actually seeking. Giving sends a signal to the universe that you’re also ready to receive.
I’ve asked so many women in tarot readings “Do you see him in your future?”
If they pause for more than 2 seconds, I know the answer is no.
If you don’t align your future with your partner, you will not go far together.
To help you create a vision for a lifetime together, surround yourself with successful couples who you look up to – people who have navigated building businesses, overcoming obstacles, and weathering all of life’s storms. (Bonus points if they’ve done it with a deep sense of humor and silliness!)

Have you ever had something about yourself you wanted to change? A bad habit? Maybe you want to be more confident or overcome your fear of success or failure?
But damn change is hard. SUPER HARD.
Because what we’re really changing is our beliefs.
Our beliefs about our self, others, and the world around us influence every single experience we have.
They’re invisible except their repercussions show up everywhere.
