How Dosha in Ayurveda can focus on your Love Relationship
Love may be more in the heart and mind rather than the body, but it is still affected by the Ayurvedic doshas. Whether you lean more Vata, Pitta, or Kapha, this can influence your dating style, your choice of a partner, and the way you behave in relationships. Knowing about your dosha and the dosha of your partner will bring a deeper understanding to your reactions, and your interactions as a couple.
How to Identify Vata-dominant Personality?
Vata-dominant individuals are expressive and creative but may get distant easily. They can be amazing company when in balance, but when out of balance they can be worried and nervous. Vatas like expressing love in creative ways, like surprise dinners and spontaneous gifts, so that their partner knows they are always thinking about them. Vatas tend to bottle up their emotions and frustrations, which can lead to overreactions, so prompting communication is key. Vatas do not like following boring routines so be sure to keep things fun and exciting if you have a Vata partner.
Pitta-dominant individuals are passionate and spicy, but also have a need for accomplishment. They are fun and creative when in balance, but when out of balance they can be competitive and controlling. They can be quick to anger, but with a little space, are also quick to cool down. Pittas like expressing love through grand gestures like romantic getaways, and also enjoy physical touch. Pittas do not shy away from confrontation so working through tension quickly and gently can soothe this temptation. Pittas love to be organized to maximize their time and are not the go-with-the-flow type of people, however, they are absolutely in the moment so do not push for a commitment too quickly.
The Kapha-dominant Personality
Kapha-dominant individuals are sweet and nurturing but need reminders to stay on track of their goals. They make others feel at ease when in balance, but when out of balance they can become lethargic and sad. Kaphas like expressing love through deep discussions and romantic declarations. Kaphas avoid confrontation, absorb negative energy, and have a difficult time forgiving and forgetting, so discussion and positivity are elemental. Kaphas love stability so commitment comes easily and is a natural progression in a relationship.
How to Maintain Love Relationship
In general to maintain your relationships, remember to eat well and nourish your body. Eating foods that support a joyful mood will make your relationships more joyful as well. This includes fresh, highly digestible foods that create ojas, which are the biochemical equivalent of happiness and bliss. Be sure to include whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy oils, and fresh milk in your diet. Cook your foods with care and fresh each day to produce the most ojas.
Stay away from Anxiety and Stress
Most people strive to be in a kind, loving, supportive, and considerate relationship. Conflict usually arises when the stress of day-to-day life creeps in. A buildup of stress and anxiety can cause tempers to flare, and unkind words can be spoken. Prevent this type of relationship conflict by managing stress before it gets to the point of no return. Treat yourself gently and kindly, so you can in turn treat your partner gently and kindly, and with understanding.
One important relationship practice is unconditional forgiveness. If you can practice unconditionally forgiving your partner (and yourself and anyone else for that matter), you can break the cycle of blame. Setting conditions for your partner to ‘earn’ your love is setting them up for failure and setting your heart up for disappointment. Giving unconditional love to your partner, or any relationship sets the groundwork for a healthy, nourishing partnership.
Another important relationship practice is to know yourself. If there is a problem in your relationship, turn to yourself first. Understand what you can and can not handle, and be aware of your strengths and weaknesses. Being honest about this will allow you to be at your best for both yourself and your partner. Keep your body and mind cared for and your dosha balanced to put your best foot forward in your relationships.
