In Love And Orgasm We Trust

In Love and Orgasm We Trust

I came across this list years ago. It feels like one of these cosmic, secret-channeled things that you are lucky enough to stumble upon and absorb its wisdom.

My favourite of all the rules, the one that stands out the most to me, is Rule #1:

Find a place you trust and try trusting it for a while.

Remember That We're All Doing The Best We Can

Doing The Best We Can

I’m sometimes amazed and embarrassed by how critical I can be – both of other people and of myself.  Even though I both teach and practice the power of appreciation (as well as acceptance, compassion, authenticity, and more) when I find myself feeling scared, threatened, or insecure (which happens more often than I’d like it to), I notice that I can be quite judgmental.  Sadly, as I’ve learned throughout my life, being critical and judgmental never works, feels good, or leads me to what I truly want in my relationships and in my life.  Maybe you can relate to this yourself?

The Sick Guy - Shoot Him, Tend To Him Or Learn From Him?


I want to talk about something that just hit me like an anvil upside the head the other day.

If you’ve ever been in a relationship with a man, trust me, you’ve experienced this:

Manifestation Mojo – When The Cosmos Displays A Delightful Sense Of Humour…

Princess doll with magic wand

Apropos of nothing, the woman sitting next to me at the bus stop suddenly turned my way and said: “Doesn’t it just PISS YOU OFF when you see someone walking down the street wearing exactly the same clothes you had on yesterday?!” I dare say I clearly conveyed utter incomprehension in my resulting facial expression, because she then added: “…When you check and find the clothes you had on yesterday are missing…I mean I don’t know how she got into the house!”

Triggers, Projection, And There's Momma!

When my partner (in this video) gets triggered, some memory and associated emotion has been stimulated and adrenaline floods his system.  Until the chemical recedes there is no point in attempting to reason, defend, explain or say a thing. He has drifted into a trance bringing some snippet of history forward into the present situation.    In his reactive emotional state he is convinced that he is right or that his point of view is correct.   He projects his skewed perception into the scenario and instantly I have turned into a version of his mother.   It is not worth it to attempt to resolve ANYTHING when someone is triggered.  Chances are you will fuel the fire no matter what you say.  Save your breath and energy.

Unconscious Acceptance, Which Is To Say, What Shit Are You Putting Up With?


We do it for “love,” we do it for spirituality, we do it to polish our halos. We do it because some relationship books tell us to. We do it to look good.

We become more … accepting.

What I Know For Sure After 10 Years Of Marriage

Ahlers wedding
This past, July 17th, was my 10 year wedding anniversary.

I cannot believe that Rob and I tied the knot a decade ago. We wed in beautiful Ojai, California, known as Southern California’s Valley of the Moon, in blistering heat surrounded by our very closest family and friends. It was one of the best days of my life and one of the best decisions I’ve ever made to marry this man of mine.

Over these past 10 years that have had great ups and downs, losses and disappointments, bliss and unbelievable joy, I’ve discovered a few things.

Culture And Chemistry Matter

Culture and Chemistry

Wow… that was an unbelievable World Series!  If you watched it passionately as I did, you know what I’m talking about.  Even if you didn’t and you don’t know or care that much about baseball or sports, there are a number of things that made this World Series remarkable and also some important things we can learn from it that go way beyond baseball and sports in general.

Can You Let Go Of Your Victim Story?

Writing in a journal

Back in my twenties, I spent a lot of time writing in my journal, usually about boys. Then I had an epiphany. I realized that the quality of my relationships with men were inversely related to the amount of time I spent writing in my journal. If the relationship was healthy, I was off happily living my life, not sitting on my window seat, writing about how happy I was. But if the relationship was dysfunctional, I wrote . . . and wrote . . . and wrote. And when I look back now at those journals, I have to laugh at myself because every whining, complaining story I told had me as the heroine of my “Poor me” story. The guy was always a liar/cheater/loser/wimp/alcoholic/abuser/narcissist/jerk. They were all WRONG WRONG WRONG. But me, I was always right.
