The visual component of this video may not be crystal clear, but the advice is, so close your eyes and listen closely.

Every relationship faces challenging moments. It's really not a question of if there will be disagreements, but when. What do you do when you feel yourself getting upset with your beloved?

In this smart, sweet little video, Charu Morgan of Embody Tantra shares a simple technique for being authentic and loving when you come to a challenging moment in your relationship.

First, she says, prepare your love state ahead of time. Practice remembering your beloved in the state where you most naturally feel loving toward him or her. Do this often, so it becomes an easy place for you to go to.

Then, when you feel anger or frustration coming up with your partner, take a moment before you communicate. Allow yourself to dive into what you are feeling, because feelings like anger have a juicy power to them that your body may need to experience. Consider going to another room to feel your own true feelings more clearly. If your anger is really strong, you may even want to beat a pillow or do some other sort of cathartic physical action that will allow you to acknowledge, experience and release it.

Then, when you feel like you've honored and experienced your frustration, anger or whatever negative feeling that is coming up, return to a place of love by remember your beloved in that favorite way of yours (sleeping innocently, playfully laughing or lovingly sharing intimacy with you). As you powerfully recall this memory, you will come into a genuinely loving state. Bring that love back into the present moment.
