7 grounding tips and techniques for couples
Written by admin

find solid ground

Being part of a loving couple is an amazing thing. You have someone who supports you as much as you support them. When a partnership works well, both sides can feel supported, heard, and stable. This is especially important when life makes us feel like nothing more than flotsam and flotsam moving at the whim of forces and energies beyond our control. Then we may feel ungrounded, both as a couple and as individuals, and it’s important to find our center again. Sometimes we can achieve this by simply closing our eyes and imagining that we are in a place that we find peaceful and calming, sometimes breathing exercises can help us come back in the moment and feel more in control.

Staying grounded and centered helps us face many challenges and difficulties we may encounter, whether it is simply a tough day or a disagreement with our partner. When we are in a grounded state we have a greater chance of not giving in to emotional ups and downs and this makes communicating and interacting with those in our life much easier.

5 ways grounding yourself can help your relationship

Be quiet

Tense moments with your partner can easily escalate. Any problem is more manageable when you can remain calm.

stay focused

Being grounded leads to more clarity and focus. The likelihood of misunderstanding or misinterpretation is reduced.

Be careful

We waste so much time on past regrets and future fears. Mindfulness and grounding anchor you in the present.

To be patient

When emotions run high, you’re both more likely to react. It’s a lot easier to be patient when you’re feeling grounded.

acknowledge gratitude

It can be difficult to count your blessings, especially when you’re not thinking clearly. Grounding yourself allows for a deeper perspective and allows both of you to be genuinely grateful for what the other brings to the partnership.

2 grounding exercises to try with your partner

breathing techniques

One exercise is the 4, 7, 8 technique. I like this better than just taking four (4) breaths as it causes you to be more mindful and stay in the moment. This is how it works:

  1. Exhale fully through your mouth and make a hissing sound.
  2. With your mouth closed, breathe in slowly through your nose and mentally count to four (4).
  3. Hold your breath for seven (7) counts.
  4. Exhale fully through your mouth for a count of eight (8). This is a breath.
  5. Repeat the cycle three (3) more times for a total of four (4) breaths.

Doing this exercise with white noise playing in the background is a great way to start a deep or important conversation with your partner, especially when either of you might find the subject difficult. This technique is also useful when you’re on the verge of losing your temper or when things are heating up between you and your partner. Step away from the situation for a few moments and do the exercise so you’re not so reactive and emotional.

soul gaze

If you want to feel connected to your loved one, you can also try using a soul-focused breathing/grounding technique. I like to add a tactile element to this by simply holding or placing my hands on top of each other. Follow the instructions below for the Soul Gazing technique:

  1. Take a minute with your partner to stretch and relax your body. Pay special attention to your spine, neck and head. Begin tensing and relaxing the muscles around these areas before allowing the muscles to relax completely.
  2. Before sitting down, say the sacred greeting “Namaste,” which means Sanskrit for “The divine in me honors the divine in you.”
  3. Sit with your partner either on the floor or on the bed. Sit facing each other, either kneeling or cross-legged. You can also sit facing each other while sitting on chairs.
  4. With your eyes closed, focus on your breathing. Take a deep breath, with a long inhalation and a long exhalation. Notice any physical tension or feelings you may have. Recognize and accept each of these, but don’t let your breath distract you. Keep breathing deeply.
  5. Keep your eyes closed, but gently squeeze your partner’s hand to let them know you’ve reached a place of stillness and are ready to begin soul gazing. Wait for their response to your signal. They should react in a similar way, and when they do, both partners slowly open their eyes.
  6. Look into her left eye. In Eastern tradition, the left eye is considered the female or receptive eye. Gazing into the left eye allows each partner to let the energy in and be in a receptive mode.
  7. Let all distractions melt away. Keep breathing deeply. See what it feels like to be intimately connected to another while remaining aware of your breathing and centered within yourself. Realize that you can be both connected and part of a whole while still being a whole being in your own sense.
  8. The stillness of your gaze will gradually calm your mind. In that stillness, everything should fall away, and the small, insignificant problems that cause blockages are recognized for what they are.
  9. Pay attention to the rhythm of your breath and that of your partner. Begin synchronizing your breathing until you inhale and exhale at the same time. Let your breath be subtle but charged with the energy of your life force and the energy of this moment.
  10. Continue the Soul Gazing exercise for approximately five (5) minutes. When you’re done, say “Namaste” one last time and enjoy the closeness the practice has created.
