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.

An Interview with Laura Doyle
NY Times bestselling author Laura Doyle

NY Times bestselling author Laura Doyle

Laura Doyle is the woman who started the worldwide movement of women who practice The Six Intimacy Skills that lead to having amazing, vibrant relationships. She is a New York Times bestselling author whose books have been translated into 17 languages. She founded an international relationship coaching company and has appeared on The Today Show, Good Morning America and The View, and she has her own TV show on Amazon called "Empowering Wives". My favorite part of her bio is "The thing she’s most proud of is her gratifying, 27-year marriage with her hilarious husband John, who has been dressing himself since before she was born." LOL, and ha-hem....

I read her book "The Surrendered Wife" my first year of marriage (after I gave my first copy to Good Will! Ha!) and it shifted a huge area of our life for me--finances. Laura was a total delight to interview and is full of lighthearted, crystallized phrases, such as "a complaint is an upside down desire" and "respect is like oxygen for men" (I couldn't agree more.) Whether you are single or married, don't miss this episode!

 
What is Spirituality? A Brief Review of Masculine and Feminine Principles

Thanks so much to all the people who have been listening since September, writing me, and letting me know how the podcast has been influencing their relationships for the better. This week I'm doing a brief review of the kind of depth we can find in tiny moments when we are willing to adapt to the moment and grow spiritually in relationship, whether it is with your spouse of 15 years or a new friend you're dating. These principles hold the power to help you with that growth.

Let's trust in Something Better as we close this intense year, and prepare to thrive in 2018 together.

Healthy Masculinity in Relationships with Evan Marc Katz
Evan Marc Katz has been helping women find love for 15 years.

Evan Marc Katz has been helping women find love for 15 years.

Evan Marc Katz is a dating coach who specializes in helping smart, strong, successful women understand and connect with men.

He's also been married for ten years and has two kids, and recently wrote a blog post called "Why Married Women Get a Raw Deal". I found this piece insightful, rational, and it seemed like a compassionate conversation starter among spouses who want to negotiate enjoying their life. When he told me he got a lot of negative feedback, the conversation took an interesting turn into our current climate, heated by case upon case of abuse and harassment caused by prominent men. Enjoy our chat from the grey area of what seems to be a black and white standoff. To learn more about Evan go to his website.
