When it comes to relationships, one of the most painful things that a couple encounters when one wants to have some distance, while the other wants to spend more time with their partner. Sometimes, whether you’re in a relationship or not, it would be a great idea to give yourself an alone time as this can help improve your relationship, whether if it’s with a friend, family, or a lover.
However, rather than spending your alone time by locking yourself inside your room or house, you should give the Tantra practise a try. Tantra helps you understand yourself more while embracing solitude, without shutting yourself out from the world. Let’s see what more can tantra do in improving your relationship.
What is Tantra?
Tantra is a kind of practice where you can find meditation through the emotion of love, which is why it is the perfect practice that you need to try if you need a bit of solitude. In contrast to the famous belief of the Americans, tantra is not an advocation of uninhibited sex. But it is a practice that purifies the energetic body and generates sexual energy.
Tantra consists of different practices, and these include love, social life, spiritually, sexual union, and acceptance. All of these are included in order to achieve one’s spiritual aspirations. This practice can be done individually or with a partner, but since you need some time alone, it would be best if you practice this in a quiet room alone.
What are the Benefits of Tantra?
Now that we know that tantra consists of different practices, how is it beneficial to our daily lives? Tantra is not just about improving your sexual interaction. When roughly translated, tantra actually means to “weave” the mind, body, and spirit which means it greatly affects your whole being in a good way.
Here are some of the basic benefits that tantra provides:
- Provides mental clarity
- You embrace solitude more
- It awakens your spiritual side
- Relieves stress
- Enhances your sex life
- Promotes well-being and health
- Deepens your bond with your partner
- Gives you a break
- Increases flexibility
What are the Benefits of Solidarity?
While practising tantra, you’ll also gain something beneficial when doing the practice alone. Solitude your aloneness is different from being lonely and it gives us the power to adjust and regulate our lives. Solitude is also associated with creativity, freedom, intimacy, and spirituality which is why it has a connection with tantra.
Here is a list of things of how solitude can improve your whole being:
- It increases your self-awareness
- You’ll get to know yourself more
- It improves your memory
- Improves your relationships
- It makes you become more mindful
- It allows you to reboot your mind
- You get to know your emotions more
- Strengthens your relationship
- You’ll be able to solve your problems effectively
When you spend time with yourself, it doesn’t have to mean that you have to shut yourself from the world. But instead, you should take the opportunity to understand yourself better and to know what you desire in life. In order to give yourself an absolute alone time, you should consider practising Tantra as you’ll benefit a lot from the practice.
In my experience, to go deep in a relationship, it is important to go deep within yourself. It’s an art of striking a balance between aloneness and togetherness.
