You wake up in the morning next to your partner, but, as soon as your eyes open, you’re focused on the kids. Whether that means feeding the baby right away, getting the little ones dressed for school or making sure teenagers heed their alarm clocks, your day starts with them. You may head off to work, or maybe you stay home with the kids. Once both parents are home again, the day ends in much…

Is your love life building you up or making you sick – literally? It turns out that your relationship status can have a direct impact on how healthy you are. The happier the relationship, the better you will feel in mind and body. Happy relationships are ones where couples listen to each other, communicate openly, share stories, feelings, laughter, and hobbies together, and genuinely enjoy one another’s company. Does this sound like your relationship? If…

Religion and relationships. That almost seems as taboo of topic to discuss as sex and relationships. The reality is that religion can play an important part in who we are. It can also play a role in how we relate to the world around us. Should it carry over in our relationships? About 77% of Americans identify with being a member of a religion, while 23% consider themselves agnostic, atheist, or unaffiliated. How does that play a…

A strong relationship requires work and commitment on behalf of both parties involved. Even if you feel that you’re born for each other, you’ll get into arguments, and you’ll have to overcome challenges. In the absence of a proactive approach, the bond between the two of you will soon be weakened. Strengthening your relationship will necessitate a bit of everyday work. To ensure long-term harmony and stability, you may want to keep the following rules…

Birds do it, bees do it, people do it, but talking about it can feel uncomfortable. Talking about sex can be difficult, especially when you have a new partner. However, engaging in these potentially awkward conversations is necessary, not only for achieving intimacy but for your health. Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are common and are becoming an even bigger problem. In fact, according to a press release by the Center…

Tantra has been around for thousands of years and teaches people how to connect with the universe and with their bodies on a cosmic level. Unlike traditional sex, where the end goal is an orgasm in the genitals, tantra is about rediscovering yours and your partner’s bodies and learning how to move your sexual energy away from your genitals, up through your body and to your head. When this sexual energy reaches your head, your…

Have you ever had people in your life who, by just being around, seem to drain your emotional and mental energy? In other words, energy vampires? When we talk about vampires, we are not talking about literal bloodsuckers. We are using the ‘vampire’ reference for a non-voluntary feeding that takes place on our life force energy from another living consciousness–either in the physical or non-physical realms and on all levels of our Beingness — physical,…

It’s always such a beautiful reminder when you read old poetry or literature and realize that those before us experienced the same kind of woes or struggles, questioning the same things we do. As when it comes to raw human emotion, and the way we should treat each other, the passing of decades does not change what ultimately makes us human and what makes us good people. The poem Desiderata, by Max Ehrmann, really resonates with…

We stumbled across this poem and fell in love. It’s by an unknown author, so we don’t know who to credit, but whoever it is has captured something so meaningful when it comes to the relationships in our lives. We thought the message was so powerful that we wanted to share with you here. Enjoy. People come into your path for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is,…

When new clients come in for a reading, they very often ask me if we can determine if another person is in love with them. I find this a very challenging reading to do because what does it mean to be in love? And is it the same for everyone? If we discover that another person is indeed in love with my client, will this still lead to disappointment if the other person’s definition of…
