Intuition and Romance
Using all Six Senses to
Be More Romantic
“Knowing what your partner wants and needs is
your sixth sense or intuition at work.” - Heidi
Call it intuition. Call it ESP. We all have it
and can use it to create a lasting romantic relationship.
When our sixth sense is in full gear, it’s like
one of those timeless moments between two people
when nothing else in the world matters and no
one else exists. I’m not talking sex, here. I
am talking when two people connect on a level
beyond the physical. Let me explain. I was married
for 16 years to a good man; he was a good father
and a good provider. In fact, we seldom had any
conflict in our lives. For some women that might
be enough. And yet something was missing from
our relationship. He just didn’t “get” me. Even
after 16+ years of marriage, he didn’t really
know what I liked or what made me tick. It was
inevitable that we would not stay together forever.
Then I met a man whom I have been with for nearly
14 years. It was like he knew instinctively what
I liked without me even telling him. Rarely does
a day goes by when one of us doesn’t call each
other and talk about something the other was actually
thinking or go to the store and buy dinner (just
what the other was craving without verbalizing
that craving). We tease one another about how
keen our sixth sense is at certain times. I find
it very romantic. I call it a connection to something
more and greater than the physical senses are
able to distinguish.
And how about the other five senses? How do we
know just which senses we should focus on? If
they work to create the kind of romance your partner
appreciates, then I believe you have what it takes
to increase the power of your sixth sense, far
beyond touch, taste, sight, smell and sound. Here
are some tips for using all six senses to be more
romantic (excerpted from the book Romance on a
Budget – www.romanceonabudget.net):
Look into my Eyes (#11) – When you gaze into each
others eyes, everyone else seems to disappear.
And looking intensely at one another can send
a message to your partner that can lead to better
Listen … (#37) – Do you want to know a secret?
Being a good listener is an art. Some people are
natural good listeners, others need practice.
When you truly listen to one another it demonstrates
that you care about what they are saying. It’s
most important communication skill in a successful
long-term relationship. If you really want to
know your partner’s likes and dislikes, wants
and desires, perfect the art of listening.
Hungry for love (#120) – Visit a local fruit or
vegetable grove together and pick your own. Take
your goodies home and cook up something wonderful,
then feed it to each other. MMMMMM… Good!
The scent of you (#46) Spray your perfume or cologne
on the phone most often used by your partner.
Or all the phones in the house. This will surely
kick the romance meter up a few notches. It’s
especially effective if you are going out of town.
Touch me in the morning (#115) – … in the afternoon,
in the evening. Give your partner a massage. Buy
some fragrant massage oils and watch the tension
turn to pleasure. Take turns.
A Hard Day’s Night (#30) – After a hard day’s
work, surprise your partner by having a steaming
hot bath ready and waiting. Light the bathroom
with candles and yummy scents. After bathing and
drying your partner off, show him/ her to your
candle lit boudoir, where the bed is ready and
waiting with satin sheets and rose petals and
soft music is playing. This is where you will
proceed to rub his/her body down with scented
body massage oil. After working up an appetite,
have a romantic dinner ready, waiting to be served.
Developing and using all six senses in romance
can create a connection that goes deeper – to
our souls. Knowing what your partner wants and
needs is your sixth sense or intuition at work.
When you develop your sixth sense in romance you
will instinctively know which of the other five
to use when and in which combination to use them.
