Awakened relationships is a new type of relationship for a changing world.
Awakened Relationships are still few and far between even today. That is primarily due to the relatively small number of conscious individuals who are alive today. Roughly eighty percent of humans are below the level of consciousness. However, there are many types of relationships and all of them are designed to help us awaken and become conscious of reality.
The quick definition, is that "Awakened Relationships" are simply the union of two or more individuals working together to reach the common goal of becoming fully conscious and self-aware. Every relationship we have no matter how short lived or dysfunctional they might appear, are still designed to help us become conscious. Once we become aware that this is the primary purpose of our relationships we tend to pursue and manifest consciousness at a much quicker pace.
If the awakened relationship is the romantic kind, or in other words, if the relationship is loving in nature and based on romantic attraction, this is what I would refer to as a "spiritual partnership". Typically, people refer to this as "Soul Mates".
Spiritual Partnerships are created to promote and example; Spiritual Growth, Self-Awareness, Consciousness, and "True" Love. I say true love because our idea of real love is misguided by the desires and illusions created by the ego. Awakened relationships re-define the meaning of "true love".
Deniece and I started working together towards becoming self aware even before we were a couple. We had been close Friends for two years and had been sharing painful stories from our past, including reading material on human behavior and Personality types. Taylor Hartman's book "The Color Code" was very helpful in understanding our differences as it pertains to our personality types.
For me, there was little doubt that a relationship with Deniece would be very different from my two prior Romantic Relationships, and one that would eventually challenge every preconceived idea I had about love, romance, marriage, and the nature of relationships in general. A new kind of relationship had already begun, and even though it was kind of scary and unfamiliar, wild horses couldn't keep me from pursuing it. I felt inexplicably drawn to this woman.
One of the toughest personal challenges I faced, at the beginning of our union, was the dissolution of other personal relationships with Family and Friends. This was probably due to the dramatic changes in my demeanor. I wasn't the same person, and everything I wanted from life had changed. I was leaving the village, which I believe made those who were closet to me, feel abandoned or ignored. In a few cases, some of them seemed almost desperate to get the "old Travis" back. Unfortunately, once new awareness emerges in someone, it almost impossible to go back to the way you were.
Almost immediately, I saw the incredible potential for growth in a relationship with Deniece because she inspired me to be a better man. She also helped me talk about painful experiences including insecurities and fears by being so open and honest about her own. My past relationships had mostly been superficial in nature and an example of what I didn't want to be, but Deniece shared so many of the same values and was clearly heading in the same direction. In essence, our union re-aligned me with my spirit, which opened new doors to all sorts of Universal Guidance and opportunities for personal growth.
As consciousness continues to emerge on our planet, I believe Awakened Relationships will become more prevalent due to an increasing desire to move towards a common goal. A goal where self awareness and supporting the "Greater Good" of all mankind is a top priority.

"Happiness comes when your work and words are of benefit to yourself and others."
"If you aren't good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since you'll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren't even giving to yourself. "
Other than with my wife Deniece, I haven't personally had any other
