For example, one of my clients, Syd, met her husband, Don, on a blind date. It was love at first site for both of them and they married within six months of meeting each other. They both knew that they were soul mates. But within a few months of getting married, they were both on the phone with me, questioning whether or not they really were soul mates. They were fighting almost every day and their passionate lovemaking was gone.
Because they were so connected, they were triggering each other's fears constantly. Fortunately, they were both interested in learning to take responsibility for their own feelings and devoted themselves to learning and practicing Inner Bonding. Through hard work and dedication to their own healing, there were eventually able to get back their original in-love feelings.
