Should You Trust Other Women?

You Can Trust A Woman

The other day I was ending a phone call with a woman I mentor, and she expressed to me her gratitude for being able to trust me. The tone in her voice was beyond sincere, it was like a breath, a deep exhale. It felt like a release or opening of something she had been tightly holding for years, as if in protection. In that moment, I knew instinctively that she had just opened the door to me to enter that close, tender, vulnerable space inside of her that she let very few, if any, into – the place I call the inner heart sanctum.  And I also knew her instinct to protect this place within her was there for good reason.

Date The Partner Who Is Sure They Want To Date You!


I am fortunate enough to speak to, on average, 25 bright, gorgeous, spirited clients a week.  The majority of these clients are woman–close to 90%– and they are exquisite. She is usually good at what she does and wants to be great or stuck in some area of her life and wants to get unstuck. She is intelligent, compassionate, successful and accomplished in many senses of the word yet, deeply afraid of being left behind in romance and partnership.  So much so that she spends exorbitant amounts of energy repressing, and quite honestly, disrespecting what she wants in relationship in order to be who she thinks “he” needs her to be.

The Holy F*ck

Sex weekend

Somehow, I intuited this at an early age, that the f*ck was my salvation.

That if I truly gave myself to it, I would be delivered.

Are You Secretly Self-Sabotaging?


I’m a seeker. I like to learn new things, challenge myself, “grow spiritually.” But I also admit that when something good happens, I look for potential problems. I become critical of everything in my life – my decisions, my habits, my behavior. Instead of nurturing and enjoying the blessings I have in my life, I look for how it could all go wrong.

Here's Scientific Proof That We Need Each Other To Shine

We need each other to shine.
Scientifically speaking, we need each other to shine.

I confirmed this one night on a West Coast island, in the backyard of an astronomy-crazed couples’ home. They told me that they fell in love over their mutual obsession with outer space. And they had a mega telescope to prove it — like, you got on a ladder to look through the lens, and it was in its own small cabin with a retractable roof. For a small donation, island visitors could have a look-see with a side of tea and cookies.

How Meeting Up On “Meetup” Made Me Blossom…

Purple crocus flower

A few months ago I was at a lecture about community and how it has changed because of the internet. The worldwide web has encouraged us to be increasingly insular, as we hide away on our computers more and more to communicate with people who may be geographically distant, but of course it can also bring those in a locality closer together. One website which links people to a myriad of interest groups available in their immediate area is Meetup. A few years ago this site was the catalyst for an exponential expansion of my social confidence, not to mention my awareness of life’s possibilities.
