I love my husband. We have been married for over 16 years. He drives me crazy a lot. He is supportive and loving a lot as well. He has no idea what I "really" do in my business.
He does however, ask me to do my "magic" thing on him from time to time. It is usually when the conventional methods are not working. He is very smart, very left brained (even though he is super creative as well), and he is a very science and a "prove it to me" kind of guy. He is not into the woo that much. He does buy me crystals though, so at least he honors that I am into all the woo!
But what is funny is that he kinda is, we just call it something different. Where I say "intuition", he says "gut feeling". I would say my husband is quite intuitive.
Where we get into a bit of a pickle is when I try to help me or give him advice about health and healing, and what I think he should do. I know, I know.....it never works when you tell someone what to do. I know this, and honestly with everybody else I am really good at NOT "shoulding" on them. But with my husband.....I can be a pain in the ass. I know this.
Here is the thing, I am really intuitive and I know what he is doing isn't working. He is super stressed with work, and has lots of stress related issues as a result. But because I am on the outside looking in, I have the bird's eye view. I also happen to have the spiritual energy healing know-how to help him. But, he doesn't want my help. He just doesn't. He sees it as me telling him what to do. I get it, but but but.
The point of today's post is to remind myself and you if you happened to be married to the same kinda guy, is that I can offer to help, and I can lead by example, but I cannot make him (or anybody) do anything they don't want to do even if it is just the best-est thing in the world and I just know it will help him. Sigh...a challenge for me at times I acknowledge, but something I want to change in my relationship. Sometimes I just keep doing what I know isn't working, in the hopes that perhaps one day it will work. Isn't that the definition of insanity?
