Empaths and Energy Vampires

Have you ever entered a relationship with someone and questioned their integrity but felt convinced that you will be the one to receive the best of them, despite the questionable motives and behaviors that they have displayed? Have you ever left an encounter with a person and felt like you could fall fast asleep? Have you ever been flooded with surprising emotions at moments, and at others, unable to sense what you yourself are feeling inside?

You may be an empath.

It's imperative to understand yourself better if you are, because you'll require specific tools for self care, and you'll need to become aware that you're a magnet for people who maintain difficult personality traits.

In this week's podcast, live Tuesday morning, July 24th, I share my experience of two radically informative books on the topic, which are both easy to purchase on the books page of this website: The Empath's Survival Guide by Dr. Judith Orloff, and Dodging Energy Vampires by Dr. Christiane Northrup.

Thank you for listening!!

Bachelor #2

This week I go deeper into some of the correspondence I had with my first single, masculine man listener who emailed me. I answer some of his questions and concerns, and also expand on how we both think men get a raw deal at times. I want the feminine female listeners to hear from the inner world of a single guy and know they go through their own challenges on this journey too.

 

 

On Chakras

You are more than just a bag of bones- you are a consciousness. You are a spiritual being in a vessel that is your responsibility. If you're leaving your comfort zone to change and grow, deep care is more important than ever.  Each ailment, pain, illness and discomfort delivers information and awareness, if you will allow for that. A tool paramount to this process is developing a personal awareness of your chakras--what Deepak Chopra calls "junction points between physiology and consciousness". One more not to my female singles...realize, ladies....that when you let someone in with intercourse, you are letting them into more than just your physical body...you are letting them into each and every chakra. Are they worthy?

Trust the Process

This week I responded to a few listeners by offering a single's perspective, a married perspective, and a human being perspective...because regardless of whether or not you're in a relationship, we are all in an ever evolving human experience.

The truth is, there is nowhere to quickly "get to" in order to be "okay". It's an illusion, and everywhere you look (if you live in a city with billboards or watch TV) you'll be told there is a place at which you have to arrive, a thing you have to buy, a person you "neeeeeed" to know in order to be okay. However, the world is changing. PROCESS really is being embraced by our society, little by little. My mission here is to get you to fill the void spiritually and enter into a student orientation to yourself and your interactions, (which breeds consciousness) and fall in love with your own life.  Wayne Dyer taught "NOWHERE" can also be seen as NOW HERE. So here's to "getting nowhere" to reframe it into NOW HERE- you might find yourself trusting the process!!

Direct Communication: On Repair

I once heard Tony Robbins say something like 'if every married person behaved the way they did the first week they met their spouse, even after years together, no one would split up.' Are you polite to your spouse? Being rational and direct usually involves being kind. Today is on repair. Whether you've been married for awhile or you just hit your first bump in the road with the person you're dating, this is a review of some concepts created by Pat Allen and taught at the WANT Institute on rational communication and repair.

Girlfriend Talk: Do I Contact Him?
Amy and Christy

Spoiler Alert: NO! NO!!! NO!!! Please listen to this if you are committed to expressing your feminine energy in romantic relationship, but keep telling yourself it is okay to contact him. If you want to be the feminine energy in a symbiotic, hot, energetically orderly romantic relationship, you have GOT TO avert your eyes away from him and keep them on the horizon and your own heart's desires. He literally will not know what hit him, and he'll think you just arrived from Venus. Pretty much because you will.

Put your phone down, ladies. I know it feels panicky and daunting to let go, but I'm here for you. So is my guest and very dear friend Christy. Don't miss our real-life get together with microphones!

Do you beat yourself up? Do you attach a judgement to a feeling? In this episode Sara points out that there is nothing wrong with loneliness...even partnered and married people feel lonely too. It's when you attach something to it that makes it worse, like "I'm lonely, so I must be a loser". That's easy to do when you've been single for a really, really, long time. Single girls, this one's for you. It's Not You. It's just life, happening for you.

 

Communication: Healthy Romantic Relationships & Equity vs. Equality

This week on Something Better, Jack FM DJ and voice over artist Howard Cogan (also the husband of my dear friend and matchmaker Rebecca Cogan) and I bring our dinner table discussions to the airwaves...topic? Equity vs. Equality. I consider equity in romantic relationship to be a shifting and shared responsibility between two fallible human beings who are dedicated to harmony in this third entity, the relationship. Equity I like in the workplace but I believe it kills chemistry in romantic relationship and causes people to resentfully bicker and keep score. Whether you are a single or a spouse, tune in and trade-in keeping it scored for keeping it HOT!

have you ever wondered what the DJ on Jack FM looked like, or if he's married and has kids? This week you'll find out!
