"In our first meeting Joseph helped me to see the true causes of my problems, the causes that dwelled within me - my relationship to myself. He soon initiated me into the path of self-love, which has drastically altered all the important relationships of my life in such a positive way that I could have never imagined."

- Robert Lee Camp

Looking in the Mirror at Your Partner

Your partner is a mirror of you, a perfect reflection of who you are and what you are creating. That mirror provides a wealth of information. However, many people go through one partner after another refusing to look in that mirror. In fact, most who go through a series of monogamous relationships, looking for Mr. or Ms. "Right," fail to realize that there is a picture framed and hanging right beside the mirror that is the current partner. The mirror (the partner) holds the true reflection of what and who you are attracting. The picture is an image carried in the mind as to what is needed or required in a partner for that person to be ideal. Focusing on the picture, while rejecting the truth revealed in the mirror, is a set-up for relationship disaster. At that point the choice is for illusion over helpful information that can help you become the partner you need to be in order to attract the partner who is ideal for you.

If you would like your next relationship or your present relationship to work, it is in your best interest to take a serious look in the mirror that is your partner.

An on-going process of knowing your partner at deeper and deeper levels

At Ideal Relationships we begin with you. As you are willing to know yourself at deeper and deeper levels, ever increasing your self-love along the way, a miracle happens: you grow in emotional and spiritual maturity. As you do so, you find that the need to fix other people diminishes. This is vital to an ideal relationship because many sabotage their relationships by trying to fix what is wrong with their partners.

With enough self-knowledge and self-love, you can delight in the process of getting to know your partner at deeper and deeper levels. Not to test her, not to figure out how to change him, but you can get to know someone for the sheer joy, pleasure, and respect of valuing and loving another human being who exists independently of you but has the grace to choose to love you!

Your partner is always a mirror for you. The more you learn about your partner, the more you learn about yourself. The more self-love you bring to learning about yourself, the more you are able to love your partner and the more you are able to receive your partner's love.

Embracing all aspects of your partner

When you can embrace yourself fully, in all your darkness and light, you can then fully embrace your partner. As you embrace all aspects of your partner you surrender to his or her uniqueness and beauty. You do not need your partner to fill every empty place inside. You come to find that the empty places he or she fills are blessings and not requirements. You join together not as two halves of a whole, but as two whole beings multiplying exponentially your love, your lives, and your universe!
