The theme for the week in my meditations seems to be about communication. Communicating with yourself, with others, and with the world you exist in. Effective communication before, during, and even at the end of a relationship is crucial in maintaining balance in ones life and the life of others, as well as with nature in general. Ending a relation with negative emotions, generate karma which must be worked out on down the line if peace and balance is to be maintained. As Jedi we are looked to as examples of balance.

[Article]

The relationship-boosting properties of mindfulness and meditation are hard to argue with, and here's why: One of the side effects of having a regular mindfulness practice is the ability to communicate with your partner at a higher level thanks to your ability to be present. Undivided attention is one of the most important elements of a romantic partnership, and the ability to be truly present is the greatest gift you can give your partner.

For example, positive psychologist Shelly Gable, Ph.D., studied the human response to good news. She found that there are four different levels of response when someone is communicating. Let's use fictional romantic partners Leah and Joe as an example to help demonstrate this. In this scenario, Leah just came home from work and excitedly tells Joe she got a promotion.

His response has the potential to play out in four different ways:
1. Passive constructive

Joe says, "Good job" without taking his eyes off the TV, ignoring eye contact and continuing to enjoy the television program.

Response rank: This is the most destructive, least mindful response, as it exemplifies marginal acknowledgment.
2. Passive destructive

Joe says, "Good job" and then excitedly tells Leah that he also received a huge job promotion.

Response rank: This is the second-most destructive response, as Joe's response overshadows Leah's accomplishment.


3. Active destructive

Joe says, "Good job," speaks about all the change that will happen in her life, and asks how will she manage her new staff, commute, and job tasks. He questions whether she really thinks the promotion is a good thing.

Response rank: This is the second-most mindful action. Even though critical and constructive feedback is necessary at times, focusing on the negative during "good news" sentiments can lead to feelings of doubt.
4. Active constructive

Joe says, "Good job," offers Leah his attention and eye contact, and continues to show interest through active listening as Leah shares the details of her new job.

Response rank: This is the healthiest, most mindful way to converse and respond to your partner. The fully engaged response and attentive interest lead to stronger and healthier relationships.

Whenever possible, it's best to connect to the active constructive response when communicating with your partner—but when you're not tapped into your own mindfulness, that's easier said than done. Here is a mindfulness practice to increase healthier communication and better mindfulness in your relationship:

Watch your partner's lips when he or she speaks.
Make conscious eye contact.
Hold space for your partner to fully express.
Listen without planning a response.
Ask for more details.
