On this blog, we’ve talked a lot about meditation benefits. It can ground you, make you calmer, and connect you to your Higher self and life purpose.
Well I’m here to tell you it can also improve your love life. :) No, I’m not kidding. (And now you officially have NO reason not to try it!)
And when you think about using meditation to improve your relationship, you’ll see it makes sense.
In fact, one of the BIGGEST meditation benefits is that it connects us with our Higher self (a.k.a. soul), which is pure loving energy… and gets the good vibes rolling!

How Meditation Benefits Improve Your Relationship
Here’s the thing about meditation…
As I said, meditation connects us with our soul. And the more connected we are to our soul, the more loving and light we become. In turn, it’s also easier for us to recognize love and light in others. (Super important in relationships, right?)
But don’t just take my word for it — let’s dive into the story of Julie and Todd. Before we get to far, scouts honor, this WORKS… I’ve had firsthand experience!
Meditation and Marriage (Julie and Todd)
After 12 years of marriage, Julie and Todd were not fulfilled in their relationship. She felt like he constantly criticized her, and he felt underappreciated and scolded. So after a long time of “putting up with it,” they were on the brink of divorce.
During this time, Julie turned to mediation as a way to calm and center herself. The moments she slipped away to her meditation mat and took in the stillness became sacred to her.
Julie then began to embrace her spiritual awakening. It changed her perspective and the way she viewed things, including her husband.
And then, the meditation benefits hit her (you’re gonna love this part)…
Julie realized that:
All souls are inherently good and loving. So what would happen if she focused on her husband from her soul’s perspective? What if she set soulmate myths aside and saw him as a spiritual being?
So, each day, when she interacted with her husband, she saw his soul.
And, wow! It worked.
Seeing her husband from a higher perspective helped her appreciate his loving qualities. And the little things that used to upset her (why didn’t he ever do the dishes?) became unimportant.
- She turned up the radio when love songs came on.
- They enjoyed date nights together.
- She felt joy when he got home from work.
ALL of these benefits because Julie started meditating!
With more peace in her heart, she fell (back) head-over-heels in love with her almost ex-husband.

Why meditation improves relationships
Julie didn’t just sit down and focus on fixing the marriage. She used meditation to connect with her Higher Self, which let more love and peace in her heart. And this had a ripple effect…
Through meditation, she changed… and her view of her relationship changed, too.
Is that powerful or what?
The only thing we can control is our reaction to things, so that’s what she did. When she felt frustrated, she brought herself back to the moment and centered herself. You see, meditation benefits gave her a loving view of the situation and she realized that the little things weren’t worth a second thought!
This method, over the course of 6 months, saved her marriage. It took her playing from heart wrenching Adele songs to Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream (even though she’s 42!)
So here’s the deal…
Meditation impacts so much of our lives because it impacts our perspective.
It not only calms us and connects us with our Higher self, it also changes the way we see the world and those around us.
There’s real power in accepting that our only responsibility is our reactions… and increasing our Spiritual health through meditation mediates those reactions.
Are you convinced about the power of meditation benefits yet?
I thought you might be. :)
