Overcome Relationship Hurdles Through Retreats

Common Relationship Hurdles

Romantic relationships, no matter how badly you want them to remain all good and easy, encounter hurdles. Relationships without any problems may not be stressful, but they cannot be considered as completely healthy. Couples need to have these little downs in between all their ups for them to become much stronger. When small arguments escalate to something truly unnerving and disastrous, some decide to bring their issues to the experts while others simply deal with them on their own and go on a spiritual retreat together.
So what are the things you need to look out for if you want your relationship to last:
1. Letting your insecurities get to you. – Fear, combined with other negative emotions such as frustration and anger, can destroy the peace and happiness that you cherish in your relationship. Allowing yourself to believe that you won’t be able to meet other people’s expectations can cause ugly confrontations between you and your partner. Comparing your achievements to his can also cause a rift to develop between the two of you. Try focusing on the good things that are already present and see this get reflected in your partner’s actions. Going on a spiritual retreat is great because it can be the start of your healing process.
2. Following other couples’ life stories. – Don’t put your relationship in a mold. You have a different story to tell to the world with your partner. Don’t convince yourself that just because you saw your parents end a certain way, then there’s a high chance for you to be the same. Embrace each other’s individuality and work together in creating your own fairy tale. Participate in a couple’s retreat and try to rediscover more wonderful things about each other.
3. Not investing enough quality time – No matter how busy you are, please don’t forget that you have someone in your life seeking your attention and love as well.  Prioritizing your career is good, but constantly making your partner feel secure is even better. Neglect is almost the same as rejection — both will make your partner feel unimportant. You can spend quality time together by engaging in activities provided in spiritual getaways. Spiritual retreats revive the sense of belonging-ness and camaraderie that most couples tend to lose after being drowned in their hectic schedules. Experience something together and you’ll surely feel fulfilled.
4. Taking things for granted – Don’t forget to accompany the sweet words with actions.  Even if you say those 3-magical words every day, if your partner doesn’t feel it then it’s useless. Make sure that you stay connected to your lover and convey, even in small gestures, your feelings of affection. Bring your sweetheart to a Sedona-inspired spiritual getaway and shower your partner with love.

Building Realistic Relationship Through Couple’s Retreat

Understanding Relationship Myths

Myths about relationships, according to experts, drive away the happiness that keeps you together. If you have this perception that everything in your life should go a certain way, then you may be in for a lot of disappointments. Frustration is the foremost killer of love.  When you are put in a situation wherein nothing is going the way you expect it to, the tendency is that you will vent your anger out to your partner.  If you ever feel like you are veering toward this direction, better do something about it now and go on a couple’s retreat. Here are some common relationship myths that mislead couples today:

  1. Good relationships do not need much work to succeed. – Contrary to that belief, it is actually the relationships that are given the most effort and time that prove to be most enduring. According to psychologists, culture, parenting style and even the education system, do not prepare individuals for this kind of mindset.  Oftentimes, we are given the notion that it is only the bad things which we need work hard on.  Experts have compared good relationships to bountiful gardens. You would not get such a thriving outcome if you will not put your heart, soul and even faith into it.
  2. If you are in love, then you will automatically know what the other’s feelings and needs are. – Romantic couples are not pairs of fortunetellers. You cannot predict what your partner is seeking simply by gut feeling.  And vice-versa, you can’t expect your partner to know what you’re thinking when you’re not talking. Active communication and honest interaction are some of the things that have to be present in a good relationship.  Taking spiritual retreats together can help you become more open and understanding with each other.
  3. Jealousy is the ultimate sign of love. – Occasional fights make the relationship more interesting.  However, if you are constantly engaged in a battle with your sweetheart because of jealousy, then it’s clearly not love.  It all just translates to lack of trust and irrational possessiveness. If you allow insecurity to get in between the two of you, then you are doomed. Couple’s retreat gives lovers the chance to reconnect and establish their faith in each other.
  4. Couples who go for therapy are facing relationship dilemmas.– Seeking counsel from experts does not necessarily mean having relationship troubles.  Sometimes couples seek advice from experts merely to strengthen their bond and prevent any small mishaps to turn into something destructive.  One of the things being recommended by therapists to make couples grow much closer is to go on spiritual getaways.

Transform Your Life Through Spiritual Retreats

Taking Control of Your Life

Transforming your life is an act that starts within you. You cannot tell yourself that you can’t change your life because of circumstances or because of other people. Self-development is an act that is taken upon by the individuals themselves and not forced by anyone. It is the ultimate manifestation of how one is in control of their life.
A lot of people may feel that transforming their life depends on certain timing, people or situation. The ‘what if” or “if only’s” have been the usual statement starter of those who are slumped and feel that they do not have the control to change their lives. What’s worse, most people blame these external factors instead of making themselves accountable to implement changes. Here are a few tips on how you can get away from the blame game and start taking control of your life.

  1. Be tolerant and find a justification – most of the time, our failures are not really failures but rather delays in our journey. They become painful when we magnify the bad aspects of a certain incident. Remember that everything happens for a reason. Find justification and learn to be tolerant and accept the fact that it’s not the end of the world. It could be timing, something doesn’t fit or maybe something better is on its way. Being tolerant and our ability to come up with justifications can make it easier for us not to blame other people or things for the unlikely incidents in our lives.
  2. Remember that you create your own perception – it’s either the glass is half full or half empty, you can choose wisely. Positive thinking can bring you a long way in achieving your dreams and living a life that’s not “dependent” simply on circumstances. If you look at yourself and your life in a positive view, you will see that you have more opportunities than you can imagine.
  3. Be accountable of your mistakes – to err is human. You’re not supposed to be perfect.  Handling and being accountable in these mistakes makes us different from one another. Remember that we are faced with choices every day and they come with different consequences, regardless of the result, we let them happen and these mistakes are ours so accept and learn from them.
  4. Stop pointing your fingers and get back on track – blaming other people or circumstances will not help you move forward. More or less, it invites resentment. Remember that when something goes wrong, the blame game won’t help. Instead, go back to the issue and focus on how to deal with it.

Transform Your Life through Spiritual Retreats

It is easy to blame failures on other people and circumstances but it doesn’t help us to transform our lives and achieve our full potential. A huge part of finding purpose in life is by having control and when we blame others we have no control. Sedona Soul Adventures provides customized retreats that helped people transform their lives for the better. With their spiritual retreats, they have helped people to reconnect with themselves and find their life’s purpose. Call them now at 877-204-3664 and take that first step to a real life transformation today!

Solve Relationship Insecurities Through Couple’s Retreats

Addressing Relationship Insecurities

For many couples, maintaining a healthy relationship can be a challenge as our society has so many clichés on how a perfect relationship should be. Romantic vacations may help to bring back the connection between partners, however, most individuals back into the traps of relationship insecurities.
While romantic vacations maybe a good idea, looking into the real issues of relationship insecurities takes soul searching and commitment. Relationships exposes an individual to emotional vulnerability and these insecurities may be rooted from one’s fear of rejection and fear of loss. Here are some tips to overcome relationship insecurities:

  1. Do not create problems when there is none – more often than not, people are inclined to think what could go wrong when things are “too good to be true”. Do not confuse this with reality. Sometimes, when we assume we know what the other person is doing or how they will react, it can lead to self-torment that makes one miserable and unhappy.
  2. Do not be carried away with the clichés – our society has given us pictures of how relationships should be. Whether we admit it or not, not all of them are realistic. Relationships are unique and people express their love in different ways. Do not assume that just because your partner is not meeting your expectations, your relationship is doomed.
  3. Give space for personal developments – remember that you and your partner are two different individuals with different needs. Your own personal growth is important in order to keep your relationship healthy. Give enough space for your relationship to breathe and do things that may not necessarily require you to be with your partner. Have your own hobbies, your own circle of friends and try to achieve your own goals as well.
  4. Communicate instead of mind reading – no matter how delicate or how hard the issues are, it is imperative that partners should talk about them. Do not assume or attempt to read each other’s minds as this will result in confusion and misunderstanding. Talk to each other.
  5. 5.    Treat your relationship not as a continuation of your past relationships – leave the old baggage behind. Sure you’ve been hurt and learned your lessons but that doesn’t mean your partner has to endure all the burdens of your pains from your past relationships. Be fair and understand that your relationship is not in anyway, a saga of your past.

Couple’s Retreats to Overcome Relationship Insecurities

If you are experiencing these insecurity issues, try to find a meaningful getaway and attend a couple’s retreat.
