Here you are. You’ve been dating someone for a significant amount of time, and you’re ready to move in together. Your home is large enough to accommodate your partner, but he or she doesn’t feel like the home is ready for both of you. Why is this? Your partner is committed to you, loves you, and has nothing obviously holding them back from moving in together, but there is still a sense of resistance. Some of it has to do with the physical logistics of the space, but there’s usually an energetic component holding them back as well. I LOVE love love working on projects like this! It’s so much fun to help someone troubleshoot their home so that their partner feels like there is space in the nest for both partners to cohabitate. In this post, I’ll give you 7 tips for making your home more amenable for the couple to live together.
-Write the negative belief on a piece of paper and burn it.
-Transform the belief into a positive “What if question”, like “What if I am worthy of having a partner this great move in with me?” Our minds love to chew on “what if” questions, but they are usually negative “what if” questions. Whenever you catch yourself in a negative “what if” spiral, retrain your brain to change that thought pattern by using a positive “what if” question.
-Transform the belief into a positive statement, write it down, and look at it regularly. You could even just write it on a post-it note and put it in a cabinet that you open daily.
-I have a whole handful of other ways to transform limiting beliefs, so be sure to ask me about it next time we work together!
If you’ve combined households with your partner, what has been the most helpful tip you’d like to share with others?
