A journalist interviewed me regarding intimacy in relationships. One of
her questions was, “What are some of the easy ways in which husband and

Easy ways? Well, it depends on what you mean by easy!

Bonding has nothing to do with candles, wine and expensive lingerie. It
has to do with INTENT. In any given moment we are in one of two possible
intents:

The intent to have control over getting love and avoiding pain

The intent to learn about being loving to ourselves and to others

Virtually all of us have learned many ways of trying to have control over
getting love and avoiding pain. We learned these protective behaviors
when we were children, and as adults we unconsciously continue these
learned controlling behaviors, such as anger, criticism, withdrawal,
resistance, or compliance. For most people, these protective, controlling
behaviors have become automatic and habitual. As soon as any fear is
triggered, we automatically protect against the fear by arguing, blaming,
attacking, judging, shutting down, resisting, or giving in. In
relationships, the fears of rejection and engulfment – of losing the
other or losing ourselves – generally underlie our protective behavior.

In a relationship, if one or both partners are closed, protected,
controlling, then they cannot emotionally connect with each other. No
matter how much time they spend together with candles, wine or expensive
lingerie, the connection will not be there when one or both are closed
and protected. Ironically, when the intent is to get love or avoid pain,
what we create is a lack of love and much pain. Our intent to control
brings about the very things we are trying to avoid with our controlling
behavior.

Our own intent is the one thing we do have control over. We do not have
control over another’s intent to be open and loving, but we do have
control over our own intent to be open to learning about what it means to
be loving ourselves and to others. However, it takes both people being in
the intent to learn for partners to emotionally bond.

If both are open to learning, then they will be emotionally available to
each other and can bond with a touch, a smile, or a kind word. Bonding
has to do with the energy between them, not with anything external like
candles, and the energy comes from their intent. A controlling intent
creates a heavy, dark, hard, closed-hearted energy, while the open-to-
learning intent creates a light, soft, open-hearted energy.

The big challenge in relationships is to stay open to learning about
loving. Because we automatically and unconsciously revert to our
protective, controlling behavior in the face of fear, being open to
learning needs to be a conscious choice. Developing the ability to make a
conscious choice regarding your intent is a learning process. The
hallmark of higher consciousness is being able to choose your intent each
and every moment, even in the face of fear.

When relationship partners are both able to reliably choose to be open to
learning about loving themselves and each other, they create a sweet and
safe environment for their love to flourish. Then candles, vacations, and
lingerie can enhance their experience with each other – the icing on the
cake.

Easy ways to bond? Staying conscious and open to learning is not easy!
The concept is simple, but doing it is far from easy. Yet devoting
yourself to learning to stay open to learning in the face of fear may be
the most fulfilling and rewarding experience in your life!
