5. You feel good to be around
You know those couples that are magnetic?
Those ones that you just love hanging out with and feel energized and uplifted by? That’s a good indicator of a spiritually healthy relationship, whether they consider themselves “spiritual” or not.
Spiritual health, as we saw from the four domains, requires not only a sound relationship with self, but also with others, the environment, and the transcendent. So for a spiritually healthy couple, the relationship is about so much more than two people. They’re engaged with those around them, care deeply about the planet, and live intentionally.
Just because a couple is “spiritual”, it doesn’t make it a healthy relationship. If you’re around a so-called spiritual couple and you feel drained, confused, or just plain icky, run!
No matter where we’re at in life, spiritual health is something we can all continually aspire towards. There’s no end goal. There’s no competition. It will happen differently for each of us, and for each relationship. The beauty is in witnessing the many ways it unfolds and how we can all become a force for good in one another’s lives.
