Relationships: 5 Signs to Tell If He (or She) is the Right One for You

Posted by Intuition Girl

Throughout the course of time, understanding the value of relationships has been a most complicated experience. Yet people everyday strive to find the perfect love, the best fit, or maybe even a soul mate (if he or she is fortunate enough). Finding and maintaining a harmonious relationship must be built on trust, respect and mutual understanding and cooperation. How can you discover if your relationship is destined for harmony or opposition? Here are five tell-tale signs to determine if your potential partner is the right one for you:

1. If she looks into your eyes, she’s a keeper. But if her eyes are wandering in another direction when you are speaking with her, she may be disinterested, thinking about someone else, or simply ready to bolt. If her eyes are not engaged in the dialog, she is probably not going to be engaged to you in the future.

2. If he leans into you when he speaks with you, he wants to share every ounce of his passion with you. That means he wants to be as close to you as possible. He will often whisper into your ear, or lean forward in his posture to demonstrate that he is intrigued by you. If he is reserved, standoffish, or explicitly turning away from you, chances are that he may be looking for an escape route.

3. If his conversations are focused on you, career, family and pleasure that means that he is interested in learning more about you. When he is primarily focused on the pigskin, as in sports all the time, he may be looking past you and be prone to neglecting you in more ways than one in the future. He may reach for the remote before he reaches for you. So unless you both are avid sports fans, run – don’t walk.

4. If she snorts when she laughs or has a hardy laugh, she might be the one for you. A lot of women today are still very self-conscious about how people perceive them. They are more materialistic than filled with substance because they worry excessively about their hair, their makeup, their clothes, their shoes, even down to the purse they have strapped to their shoulders. But if your partner is willing to laugh out loud in spite of what others around her may think, and if she sees the joys that life has to offer, she most probably is walking her path positively and seeking the brighter side of living.

And finally, 5. If your significant other is an open book and is completely honest with you, he is worth his weight in gold. There should never be a first time for a “lie”. Once the lie has begun, more are sure to follow. A relationship built on distrust is doomed to failure. This also means that you, too, must remain open and honest in a relationship if you want it to succeed. There should never be any “secrets” because these are often the undoing of even the best relationships later in life.

What are your thoughts? I am always interested in hearing your point of view. Let’s connect!

5 Intuitive Signs to tell if He is Mr. Right

Posted by Intuition Girl

When it comes to matters of the heart, your hormones tend to take over your consciousness and you do not always see, nor do you want to see the red flags that show up right before your own eyes. It is difficult fighting the battle between your passion and your intuition. The two do not always mesh well.

When you first start dating someone, you enter the euphoric phase where you truly want the potential for the two of you – your hopes, your dreams, your future, your legacy. Beyond the veil of physical appearance and your raging emotions, your blinders are often on to the most obvious signs that are foreboding of a rough road ahead.

Remember, you must always keep your head in check when it comes to love and passion. What you see on the surface may not always be what is bubbling just below. Put aside the love trinkets (flowers, jewelry, candy hearts), put aside the physical intimacy, and put aside the euphoria for just a few minutes and take these five intuitive signs to heart when it comes to determining whether or not he may be Mr. Right:

1. How does he interact with members of his family? Is he respectful and courteous to his parents and siblings? If he exhibits signs of hostility or antipathy, he may be harboring baggage that can and will affect your prospective relationship sooner or later. There is an old adage that says, “How a man treats his mother is how he will treat his wife (or girlfriend).” Now that goes without saying that no man should be so clingy to his mother that he has issues of insecurity. In a recent interview with Michelle Obama conducted by Glamour Magazine, the First Lady gave the following advice: Don’t look at the bankbook or the title. Look at the heart. Look at the soul. Look at how the guy treats his mother and what he says about women. How he acts with children he doesn’t know. And, more important, how does he treat you? When you’re dating a man, you should always feel good.” Smart advice. If you keep your intuitive radar on, you will be able to spot Mr. Right or Mr. Wrong a mile away.

2. Does he shower you with affection or material gifts? Intuitively, you know that affection goes a long way. As long as he is not smothering you, love and touch demonstrate that he is into you and how much you mean to him. If he is purchasing you a lot of expensive and lavish gifts it may be flattering at first, but what’s in it for him? Is he doing it to impress you or is he doing it to be in charge of you? Ask yourself, “what does he want in return?” Or worse, does he associate love with material gain and fancy you as yet another material object? A small trinket here and there is fine, but if it is all the time, read your intuition.

3. How does his personal home or office appear? Is it in order or is it in disarray? If he has a clean but lived-in home he is comfortable in his own skin. But if his environment is chaotic, overly-messy or cluttered, you may want to rethink your relationship. This is a warning sign that suggests he may not care about his livelihood or is looking for someone to pick up after him. Notwithstanding spring cleaning, Mr. Right should have a welcoming personal space that is both clutter-free and clean. The same holds true if he is a neat freak. If you open the kitchen cabinet and his drinking glasses are in perfect alignment, as are every other item, he may have an obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). Intuition, ladies, intuition.

4. Addictive behaviors. Speaking of OCD, have you noticed any addictive behaviors that may be sending a red flag? What I mean by that is pay attention to the places that your significant other wants to go and the things that he finds entertaining. If you find yourself always going to the local bar scene with him, he may have an alcohol addiction. Or if all he wants to do is play video games with you, he may be suffering from Peter Pan syndrome. There is nothing wrong with a few nights out at the club or playing a game or two along the way, but if it becomes an unhealthy pattern, listen to your gut feeling and understand that this may become the daily norm if you choose to stay in the relationship.

5. Balance. This is the toughest part of the equation. In your relationship, do you find yourself laughing more than crying? Do you find yourself enjoying sensual encounters, or do you feel like you’re practicing a duty? Do you both share similar dreams and convictions, or do you have to ask him, “What the heck are you thinking?” Can you have a sensible conversation with his family and he with yours? Do you both share a sense of oneness in both private and in public? Is there an equal amount of give and take or are you the one doing all the giving? Intuitively, you know what is the right choice for you. In matters of the heart, you may have to overlook some habits or behavioral patterns that you can live with - but if you feel in your soul that eventually some of these behaviors will compel you to run away, then now is the time to revisit your feelings and get in check with your intuition.

Looking in all the Wrong Places: 5 Personality Types in Relationships

Posted by Intuition Girl

True love is sometimes difficult to define and can be even more difficult to discover in our lives. But it is when we are not so desperately searching for it, that it finds us. The difference here is that when love “finds” you, it is simply because you have opened yourself up to the possibility of a relationship.

What do you want out of a love relationship? Is it romance, a safe environment, a trusting friendship, security or a soul-mate? You say you want it all?  You can have a lasting and true relationship if you stop looking in all the wrong places and open your mind, body and spirit to the potential that exists around you:

1.  The “needy” relationship – if you are drawing “needy” people in your life it is often because you come across as strong and dependable but in truth, you are needy yourself and are like a magnet drawing that energy to you.  Strong and dependable are wonderful attributes to have. But in order to attract equally strong personalities in your life, you have to go where those prospects exist. If you are frequenting the bar scene, you might be limiting your potential.  Try attending arts and crafts shows, musical events, community seminars, plays, and other educational and enlightening venues. You may just bump into your future soul mate.

2.  The “fast and furious” relationship—if you find yourself in these types of partnerships, you will notice that you might mesh well on the onset but then things turn sour quickly.  It becomes a relationship of anxious gratification and constant struggle.  You might have an exciting love life, but the dialog is hot and tempered.  You transcend these types of relationships by a deeper look at your relationship and allow your love to be nurtured slowly and carefully. Remember, only fools rush in. Don’t do it!

3.  The “weighted” relationship – this is an interesting one.  This is the relationship where you discover that your mate is carrying two tons of baggage in his/her life. This person traps you…and the next thing you know, you are battling their inner demons and you’re weighted down along with your partner. The truth is that we all carry around a little more emotional baggage than we should. When we learn to let go of it, we begin attracting like-minded, like-spirited people in our lives which is ultimately what we desire.

4.  The “rope-a-dope” relationship – what? Yes, there are those individuals who just want to have a short fling and are not seriously interested in a long-term relationship.  You can easily detect these potential partners by their often aloof conversations and avoidance issues.  That personality may offer you his/her heart on their sleeve, but he/she will not take you home to have dinner with you and he/she won’t introduce you to their friends. It is perfectly natural to wait a while before bringing your significant other to family reunions and the like, but be careful if you begin noticing signs of secrecy or evasion.

5. The “OCD” relationship – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder– You think you have found the perfect partner. He wants to do everything for you. In fact, he does everything for you. Then you begin to realize that you no longer can do anything for or by yourself.  These individuals, though well intentioned, can quickly put a cramp in your lifestyle and begin to control every aspect in your life. The smartest step anyone should take when entering a love relationship is to lay down some ground rules. That does not mean one should be brash and demanding, but for all sanity purposes, be sure to let your potential partner know how you feel and that there are some things in your routine that you would like to keep your own.  Having your personal sacred space is often a healthy way to maintain an endearing relationship.  Remember, to treat yourself and everyone else with love, when you do, everything else falls into place.  Aim for a common ground.  The care with which you approach any relationship will be reflected in your attitude and behavior.

Overall, it is vital that you keep your wits about you and instead of jumping into a relationship heart-first, take it slow and easy. To build a lasting foundation built on trust, love and understanding, you must first fall in love with yourself and then the rest will follow. It is a constant process of tuning into your gut-feelings, your intuitive abilities.  Allow your intuition to guide your way.  You will be glad you did.

5 Intuitive Points for Discovering the Ideal Match

Posted by Intuition Girl

Ever wonder how some couples stay happily married for 50 years or how in love some couples appear to be? Call it chemistry, call it an instant click, or maybe…just maybe there was something intuitive about these relationships that made them work quite as well as they have.

There are a lot of singles in the world seeking that perfect mate…a soul mate for life. The trouble with searching for the perfect match is that perfection is far from easy to find…and sometimes perfection is not at all what we are seeking. Somewhere along the line, we have been tricked into believing that love creates sparks, whistles and bells… a large display of fireworks. And then when we finally discover love, it is not at all what it’s cracked up to be. Bummer.

There is some good news, however. When you use the following five intuitive points to discover your “perfect” life partner, you will find it’s a lot easier to open the lines of communication to get a relationship established.

1.  The eyes have it! When you walk into a room (or any place for that matter) and you notice that your eyes meets another’s, do you shy away or do you feel drawn to that individual? The feelings that you evoke at that precise moment are your intuitive powers kicking into overdrive. How you feel and what you perceive from that individual are clues as to whether or not that certain somebody is a match for you. Let your conscience be your guide in this case. More often than not, it can provide you with the hint you need as to whether or not this person is a fit…at least by first observation.

2.  Pay attention to hand signals! Now that you have made an eye-connection, observe the individual’s body language. Body language can intuitively tell you how the person might react to your advancement. Rather, if the individual may make a move toward you. If the person is open handed and relaxed, that individual may welcome dialog with you. If the individual is sitting with legs or arms crossed, s/he may not wish to engage in a conversation.

3.  Smile or frown? When you see an individual, you can usually intuitively pick up on that individual’s emotions. Sometimes these feelings can run a gambit and may be covered by a wincing smile or strained laugh. Study the individual for a welcoming smile or any other facial expression. Watch body movements (shifting, toe or finger tapping, etc.) too, because these are usually closely tied to facial expressions. The woman pictured on the right, for example, is saying, “Hi. I would really like to talk to you but I am shy.” (Notice the hands crossed resting beneath her chin.) The smile however is genuine.

4.  Nervous habits. If an individual is steadily tapping his or her fingertips upon a desk, table, or other platform, it means that the person is in a rush or may be a very impatient person. If you are a more laid-back individual, you will find that patience and impatience do not always go together. Intuitively and physically, you can also pick up on subtle habits like fidgeting with hair, tugging on ear lobes, or eye movements. When an individual is speaking with you, pay attention to which direction his or her eyes are shifting. If the person looks you straight in the face or slightly shifts her eyes to the right, she is being truthful. If the individual shifts his eyes overtly to the left, the person is often being dishonest. Also signs to look for which may or may not mean anything at all are eyes that ride the floor. Many times, when individuals are shy or aloof they may dread direct eye contact in fear of being “shut down” or “shut out”.

5.  Voice. An individual’s voice also plays a pivotal role in how we perceive that person. Fast, high-pitched voices may be annoying to some individuals. In some cases, slow, monotone voices can be likewise boring. Using your intuition, you will find that your voice octave often matches a prospective match. It’s a matter of listening to your potential counterpart and determining if that individual is a good match. Also note that certain octaves are more ear-pleasing to one another, so while our octaves may not be perfectly in sync, our intuitive attraction is.

Soul Mates – Discovering Yours

Posted by Intuition Girl

couple-holding-handsNamaste, a Hindu expression, roughly translates into “that which is of the Divine in me greets that which is of the Divine in you.”  And when we reflect on this simple expression, we find that the Sanskrit language of the soul resonates with us all on a deeper, more spiritual level — and this is how, too, many a soul can reacquaint itself with its identical counterpart.

Believe it or not, our intuition plays an essential role in discovering exactly who our soul mates are.  Throughout our lifetimes, we have certainly come upon an individual to whom we’re inclined.  Suddenly, you feel this sense of “knowing” – though you’ve never met that person before.  And, it is in that “chance meeting” that we discover how much alike we are. The “chance meeting,” however, is no accident; a matter of fact, it is not by chance at all.  There are no “accidents” in life.  Remember, every encounter and every facet of our lives is laid out for us to explore — including the journey in finding our soul mates.

Whether or not one believes in the possibility of reincarnation, it is important to note that each of us has at one time or another met an individual to whom we’ve been drawn like a magnet.  Accordingly, our mutual bond helps us to rediscover the life light in each other.  Perhaps in a not-too-distant past, we shared experiences and/or love, and that is what has drawn us together.  There are NO accidents in these “chance encounters.” Read the rest of this entry »
