Answer: It is possible to strengthen the connection only through a correct response and not in any other way.
The more that the friends participate in a connection with the Creator, the wider, deeper, and stronger it will be. You will begin to feel more precise harmonies, meaning that you will notice the higher elements of the relationship between you: why, what for, and so on.
This only depends on the extent to which you conduct a connection to the Creator through the group.
