From the earliest times mistletoe has been one of the most magical, mysterious, and sacred plants of European folklore.
Kissing under the mistletoe was first associated with the Greek festival of Saturnalia and later with primitive marriage rites. In Scandinavia, mistletoe was considered a plant of peace, under which enemies could declare a truce or warring spouses could kiss and make-up.
Today, this plant or a plastic look-a-like form of it is considered a fun and festive Christmas decoration to kiss under.
However, what if we used a sprig of this wonderful plant all year round in our relationship?
Imagine, if you and your partner have a pre-arranged agreement that the sprig of mistletoe represents a “peace” symbol…similar to the olive branch. Then in the middle of a fight one or both of you simply pull out the twig and place it over both of your heads. This little act would be a tangible reminder to you both of the importance of working through your conflict rather than fight over it.
I help men and women not only understand each other but also learn the skills on how to unite as a team and work through their conflicts to find a successful resolution. Although, disagreeing and fighting are a natural part of any relationship, the key is being able to work through it rather than getting stuck in it.
I know this might sound a bit too simplified but it is a fun little tool that can have big results when you work it!
