5 Affirmations For Intersecting Lives

Because They Are Not Accidents

loveRelationships can be beautiful, troublesome, wonderful or a pain in the rear and heart. When you are in one and your life is intersecting with another, meshing and blending seamlessly, you will most certainly be on top of the world. Then there are those relationships that cause you so much angst that you wonder what did you see in the person at all, at anytime.

“Life is a web of intersections and choices. Your 1st choice is to recognize an intersection. Your 2nd choice is to be grateful for it.”  Ryan Lilly

Many have the misguided notion that every relationship will be the stuff that romance novels are made of – forgetting that there was turbulence along the way even in said books. Recalling my own days of reading Harlequin and Mills & Boons romance novels, at no time did any of them instructed, advised or straight up informed me that the quality of my relationship begins with the cleanliness of my heart, my inner being.

Intersecting Intimacy

interesectingFor most of the relationships that I have had, consciously intersecting my day-to-day living with that of my partner was not a focus of mine. It took all of 40+ years of living and relating for me to start getting this. That is why an often repeated refrain of mine is that relationship guide I am not.  As a late comer to the “knowledge” of what makes a good intimate relationship and single for a few years now (by choice), I am very unwilling to have my life intersecting with an intimate partner who is not of my deepest desire.

Throughout this month, we will be publishing several articles on this thing we call love and how we express and show it in our relationships. While we will mainly speak of the intimate ones, we will also make reference to other types of intersections with people. Members of this community receives a daily dose of motivation from me each weekday morning. This week ending, Weekday Wisdom© focussed on this topic of intersecting lives outside of intimate relationships. As I do every Friday, Here is a summary of those Wisdom sent out this week. You can use these affirmations at anytime throughout the year.

Intersecting Lives

intersectingWe are placed here for relationships. We are social beings and that is how we learn and grow. Often people misunderstand the word relationship to mean intimacy but this week, let us focus on “Intersecting Lives,” and affirm how those connections will support and empower each party.

To begin, affirm:
“With every encounter today, I will greet the Soul rather than the superficial. Today, I will connect with my fellow life-partners wherever we meet.”

Greeting ‘Strangers’

“What becomes of Christian faith when the cries of the poor can no longer be heard and even charity is dismissed as an act of bad faith, aimed at relieving an unsettled conscience, instead of a compassion that reflects the divine commitment to the least among us?” Carolyn Sharp

strangersYou do not have to be a Christian or of any particular religion to appreciate that compassion is the great intersection between you and people that you see along the way.  With that in mind, affirm now and repeat as many times as you like throughout the day:

“You are no less or no greater than I am. You are my sister (or my brother) and I greet you in peace and love.”


namaste“The word Namaste is a combination of the two Sanskrit words: nama, and te. Basically, nama means “to bow” and te means “you.” The Namaste salutation was transmitted from ancient India to the countries of South-east Asia, and has now traveled virtually all over the globe.” (Source: aboutreligion.com)

Start with yourself, as for some that is the person who it is or can be the most challenging to recognize as ‘holy’, go to a mirror and affirm:

The God/Goddess Spirit within me recognizes and honors the God/Goddess Spirit within you.”

Without any grand display, even without the physically bowing, greet each intersecting live in this manner today.

I See You…

They are with you every day. You sit with them around the dining table or on the couch but do you really “see” them? Everyone of them? Or do you look only for their faults that they correcting?

family“You must remember, family is often born of blood, but it doesn’t depend on blood. Nor is it exclusive of friendship. Family members can be your best friends, you know. And best friends, whether or not they are related to you, can be your family.”― Trenton Lee Stewart

Sitting with them at breakfast, preparing dinner, or just before going to bed, quietly affirm about your relationship with these intersecting lives:

“We are bound by much more than love. You are in my spirit and your life and walk through this world is always foremost in my heart.”

Our aim on this blog is to be “Always Inspiring, Insightful and In-depth.” The concern is not with how many followers, members or ‘tweeps’ we have. While audience size matters, we are more concerned about how our lives are intersecting with yours. That is why this week’s Wisdom tips closed with the following video as it clearly shows how we can make a difference in others lives in simple ways. Watch and then affirm:

“I am powerful and it flows more freely from supporting yours.”

      Hello Johan! Thank you for visiting and your kind words! I look forward to seeing you here again. Namaste. 🙂

  3. Intimacy is part of a Specific relationship. Yet every day we go out and meet someone and our paths cross for a while. Maybe for a wonderful or not so wonderful reason and that is a relationship…could lead to intimacy…but Most cases Nope. Unless one is too free with their generosity of giving intimately …you know what am saying! So intersecting life can be with anyone for any number of reasons> Looking forward to this month’s posts on the topic 🙂

      LOL! I know what you mean. In the search for “love” often times we get things twisted and mistake being intimate with someone as love. We too look forward to these conversations over this month! 🙂

  4. Beautiful post Claudette. Literally had tears watching the video. Wish there were more people out there that do things for others cos they want to not because they are wanting something in return. Thanks so much for sharing 🙂
