Love is lust evolved.” – Brit & Chris Carmichael

We are so excited to be back to The Elevated Life podcast and sharing insights from the Evolved Couples Retreat!

Insights From the Evolved Couples Retreat

Eye Gazing Experience

If you get into an argument with your partner, try the eye gazing experience. Don’t communicate with words, but sit and stare at each other and deep in the eyes for three to five minutes. When you sit and look at somebody, you’re not focused on something else. Even if you’re upset in the beginning, it starts to soften because you join that soul connection.

Work On Yourself First

The real takeaway is that the relationship you always have to work on is the one with yourself. If you’re not improving that one, it’s hard to let in love from the other person. They can say the right words, but you’re not going to hear them because it doesn’t match up with whatever your internal belief is.

Have Awareness While Communicating

If you have awareness while you’re communicating, you can decide what you’re not doing good at, or that your partner is not responding in the way that you would like. You’re able to move that and change that differently without letting the ego get in too much.

Know That Love is Possible

It’s always good to give love a chance, no matter if you’ve been burned by it a million times in the past. So much love is possible  and sometimes it’s a bit of a struggle to find it, sometimes a little bit of a struggle to maintain it. It’s all doable, and it’s all within your power to make it happen.

The Dynamic of Powerful Couples

Being around other powerful couples that are in love shows you a dynamic of which you can gauge your level of strength and intimacy in a relationship. It’s not only assessing yourself and where you’re at, but also connecting with other couples and learning from them.
