It's not that simple
These less-than-straightforward answers usually involve helping the client see some difficult inner truths so they can make better decisions for themselves. For instance, I might be told that the client needs to work on her self-esteem, or she’ll just keep finding the same unfortunate type of partner. Or, perhaps a client needs to be kinder and gentler to their partner to improve the dynamic and save the relationship. Even greater nuance might be forthcoming: Perhaps the relationship is intended to help them both learn some specific things, and as soon as they've learned them, they will be able to move on to better relationships – but not before.
That kind of interpretation usually leaves the client feeling frustrated because we all want plain and simple directions. Go left! Turn right at the fork! Stop when you see the knight in shining armor! Too bad that's not how Spirit works….
Even more frustrating are responses that are completely oblique – like being told that you need to resolve your issues with your job or your mother or your boss before you can attract The One.
