A relationship begins with the meeting of two unique energies. This union of energies determines the way you communicate, fight, love, and want to be loved. Donna Eden and David Feinstein draw on the real-life experiences of couples who have attended their popular 'Energies of Love' workshops, as well as their own experience as husband and wife, to show how an understanding of your energy system and that of your partner can help you build a more harmonious and loving bond.
We all have different ways of making sense of the world around us, but when faced with conflict, especially with those we care most about, we tend to revert to one of four 'Energetic Stress Styles':
* Visuals are extremely passionate and inspire others. In moments of conflict, their take on the situation can overshadow what is occurring, undermining their ability to empathize with their partner.
* Kinaesthetics are generous and compassionate but their caring nature pulls them in too many directions. They try to meet others' needs at the expense of their own, causing resentment.
* Digitals are rational and principled but they can become closed to others' perspectives and feelings.
* Tonals have a gift for understanding others but during conflict they can often misinterpret the signs, hearing what was never said, felt, or thought.
The Energies of Love is filled with tools to help you diffuse arguments and energy exercises to increase your overall sense of joy and wellbeing. This practical guide serves as a powerful resource for anyone who wishes to build a rich partnership while maintaining the spark that keeps a relationship exciting.
