Shifting the Power

Last fall a great mentor of mine taught me in order for one partner to fill a position in the relationship, the other partner must first void that position. These words of wisdom were offered in response to my request for him to "fix" my husband. It was offered lovingly and yet not at all gently.

The decision to surrender was a great leap of faith for me. Giving up control was not easy. It required faith that the position would be filled and I would be cared for. It required a choice to trust. I made the choice and "went full on." The shift was instantaneous for us. It was so real that those in the room with us actually felt and could see the change. It was absolutly amazing. It has created a much more intimate relationship. It is what I always wanted. My husband became Prince Charming just as soon as I truely allowed him the position. I'm only sorry I waited so long to give him the opportunity.
