3 Ways Your Dating Expectations Will Dictate Your Experience

Wendy Newman
Are you a planner? I am. I love Post-its and daily to-do lists. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of triumphantly scratching things off those lists as goals get accomplished. It feels good to plan for every eventuality.   Expectations can be great for motivation and goal-setting, but when it comes to dating, all bets are off. Dating is not a linear experience and expectations can prevent you from getting your heart’s desire.   Here are some sneaky ones to keep one eye on…   #1. Playing the Waiting Game I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that you want a high-caliber person to come into your life.   You’ve put your profile together with true-to-life-yet-dazzling snapshots of you walking on the beach, hugging a redwood tree, sipping a cappuccino al fresco on the coolest street in your town, etc. You’ve painstakingly polished your essays so they are charming, not trying too hard, but will still knock the socks off of any dater within 100 miles of...

Do Long Distance Relationships Work When You Meet Online?

Jill Crosby
You’re on your favorite online dating site and you come across a profile that really captures your attention. You have tons in common; sense the chemistry could be off the charts and feel guided to contact this person… but wait! They live in another country—a plane flight away! Do you go with your instinct, or do you decide that long distance dating isn’t for you because it's too much of a hassel? Let’s dive in to this quandary. First off, what if this person is the absolute love of your life? Are you willing to relocate for that kind of love? If not, check their profile to see if they are. Most singles ARE willing to relocate for love, so the odds are in your favor, even if you would like to stay put.

What is “Layering” and How Can it Help Women Have Stronger Orgasms…

Celeste & Danielle
In thinking about how to give women their longest, strongest orgasms, we realized that what has helped us the most was Layering - bringing in a combination of sensations (in a specific order or all at once) to really deepen and spread the orgasm. Clitoral orgasms are the most common and foundational orgasm that women have and these orgasms are most likely to come from self-clitoral stimulation, sometimes with very little all-over body stimulation or fantasy. This is an amazing and wonderful way to have an orgasm, and we want you to think of it as the essential ingredient for most orgasms. There are many ways to add additional layers - whether...

The 7 Keys to Successful Spiritual Dating

Jill Crosby
“Spiritual Dating” or “Conscious Dating” is an enlightened way of meeting and dating. There are no rules or expectations, and it’s about being true to yourself, conscious of the other person and staying in the flow. Conscious dating is more fun than the traditional style of dating, and it yields much better results. Using these spiritual dating keys, you will find that you are enjoying your encounters with other people in a pure sense and connecting on deeper, more soulful levels.   #1 BE BRUTALLY HONEST: As a rule, we are not socially conditioned to be honest. We have been taught to protect someone’s feelings by telling little lies. “It’s not you, it’s...

Ready Yourself for Love

By Relationship Coach Kirk Danilson
 Ready Yourself for Love and Know that Attachment is Natural              A mindful, loving relationship creates well-being and joy down to the deepest core of your being.  Yes!  It’s worth it to aim for an amazing love life - an honest and caring love partnership.  When an intimate relationship is fulfilling and safe, life is good.  In the research on love and marriage evidence shows that happiness, health, and longevity are the result a secure, emotionally connected relationship.              Bruce Lipton in The Biology of Belief, goes so far as to write, “… self-love and being in a loving relationship ... enhances telomerase activity and promotes a longer and healthier life.”  And more scientific data can be found including Dr. Daniel Siegel, a well-respected neurobiologist who reported in The New York Times, “Scientific studies of longevity, medical and mental health, happiness and even wisdom point to...

Is Openness to BDSM a Deal Breaker for You? Here's How to Broach the Topic

Dr Lori Beth
The advice about when to have sex when dating is often: If you are looking for a serious relationship, wait to have sex until you get to know each other.    Often what goes along with this advice is a belief that sex does not need to be talked about because it is ‘natural’.  My experience as a sex & intimacy coach and a psychologist is that sex may be natural but desires vary widely amongst people.    Many couples have sex before talking about what turns them on.  If your desires are kinky, this can cause problems as the relationship progresses.   If the first times you have sex, things are decidedly ordinary, your partner can be forgiven if he assumes that your tastes are vanilla.  I advise people to have ‘the sex talk’ early on in a relationship and...

Focus on How You Feel, Not How It Looks

Joy Taylor
Elizabeth came to me after a painful divorce.  She was not feeling inspired. She was depressed, numb, angry and often confused.  She was coping by drinking alcohol and fixating over sit-coms.  This was a temporary way to sooth her emptiness and fill her lonely heart.  While she felt triumphant in breaking free from a marriage and a life that stifled her, she was also grieving what could have been.  She wanted to do life differently now.  She called me and shared, “I am re-evaluating my priorities.  I’m looking at everything.  I feel lost and I need to find myself again.” Everything had looked quite idyllic for Elizabeth only a year before she found my practice.  At 37, she had a handsome wealthy husband, a large custom-built home, a successful career and an attractive body.  People called her vivacious and glamorous.  Well, truth is she appeared...

Self-Care for Empaths

Jackie Edwards
2-3% of the population falls under the "empath" category. Empaths are highly sensitive people who pick up on the emotions of others. Empaths don't just empathize with people, they are known to actually take on the emotions they sense in others. While being an empath is an amazing and useful gift, it can cause much emotional strain for those who don't know how to protect themselves. This short guide will teach you how to navigate the world as an empath and learn to guard yourself against emotional stress. Common Types of Empaths  The moons of most empaths are located in a water sign, the most common being Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio. This is by...

What is the best timing to tell a date that you have an STD?

Dr Lori Beth
Let’s face it.  Dating can be daunting in the 21st century.  People are so busy that it is hard to find time to connect.  Thankfully, the internet makes some of the beginning stages of a search for partners easier.  You can join specialised dating sites that seek members who share some of the things you find most important.   These sites raise the likelihood that someone you meet will have the qualities or interests you find essential in a mate.   Once you have spent some time getting to know each other online, it’s time to head out on that first in-person date.    The anxiety and excitement mix together as you wait to see if that spark is there when you meet in person.  After all, photos never give us the full story.  Someone can look just like his photo but when you meet the energy just isn’t there.  ...

How Do I Know If They Are the ONE?

Nijole Sparkis
 Question: "I met someone I feel so close to, but we are going through a lot of ups and downs. How do I know if they are the one for me or not?" Good question! Even though I was blessed with a flash of inspiration and my husband and I both KNEW right away that we were perfect for each other, this isn’t always the case. In fact, surveys have revealed that only about 12% experience “love at first sight” and less than 30% know their partner is right for them on their first date. Most people respond that they know “after a couple of weeks” that someone is right for them. This is where...

Greater Authenticity & Personal Freedom

Nijole Sparkis
  I have truly been moving through many deep levels and layers of healing, following the passing of my mother last March. People often describe a complete transformation taking place in their lives after the death of someone close. Something about death causes you to reach deeply into your soul – as I said when my sister passed away over 4 years ago, your “heart gets broken open.” Although my relationship...

Feng Shui Your Bedroom to Atract a Lover

Ken Lauher
Rest, Rejuvenation and Romance: Use Feng Shui in your bedroom to attract a lover or strengthen your relationship Are you looking to attract a lover? Perhaps you would like to strengthen your romantic relationship with your partner. In Feng Shui, the bedroom (along with the kitchen and entrance) is one of the three most important areas of a home.  If you are struggling to find the love of your life, constantly fighting with your partner, or simply waking up exhausted every morning, the layout and colors of your bedroom may be contributing to these circumstances.   Create a Peaceful Sanctuary for Rest and Romance Whether you are single and seeking...

Ungrounded Energy, A Widespread Issue

Cameron Day
It used to be common knowledge in consciousness circles that a person needed to be grounded both energetically and physically.  People would talk about what foods helped them feel the most grounded, how spending time in nature helped them ground their meditative experiences and so on.  However, I have noticed a trend in the last few years where people are getting very ungrounded, and are even encouraging others to engage "spiritual" practices that are very ungrounding.  (Spell check says "ungrounding" is not a word, but I say that it is.  ) Two of the adverse consequences of being ungrounded are that it can cause a person to be too easily swayed by the opinions of others, as well as be fooled by any of the many deceptions in our world.   These are reason enough to put a...

Saying No Liberates Both Parties Involved!

Laurie Moore
When dating, it is important to keep asking ourselves, what matters most to me? Am I over-compromising to avoid hurting someone else? Am I going outside of my deeper needs zone in hopes someone will change later? Am I judging myself unfavorably for my unique needs instead of honoring these? We may have heard advice like this many times. Practicing it, however, is an art.   We all have the idea of a dream relationship. But what of that is fantasy and what is truly what serves us? The more we clarify what truly meets and serves us to ourselves, the more able we are to find and appreciate that one special person!   Here is the good news.  Every time we say no, we get closer to meeting a mate who will be a great match. Every time we say no, we let someone else go free to find someone who will love them for who they are! ...

World Vision

Jill Crosby
The following is a vision that I received in October, 2011. It came to me in the evening before going to sleep while lying in bed. It was if I was actually there, living it. When I came back to this realm I took copious notes in my iphone which was on my night stand. After meditating the morning of 11/11/11, I felt guided to share this vision with our members in the form of a mass email. I got sooooo many responses from that email that I have now decided to post it on the site. I feel that this vision is waking up deep seeded cellular (and probably DNA) memories for those that read it, feel it and connect with it. I share this with unconditional love and a knowingness that we are all FAMILY. Sending you so much LOVE. Here is the vision I was given: Everyone on the planet instantly gets their memories back and we all remember that we are Divine beings. We realize that we all created...

I AM A PRECIOUS JEWEL

Janie Martin
This morning my Soul said this to me during a meditation and showing me as a symbolic image story of me as a precious gemstone lying buried just beneath the surface in the ground with a number of explorers looking to find me, that I, Janie, was a beautiful precious jewel that has been lying here buried in the ground.  Many have passed me by, walked over me even.  I was within sight but they missed me........they missed me because they did not deserve me, they were not ready for me, they did not believe they would find me, they would never have appreciated me because they could not see my luster buried here all alone. I am centuries old.  I am waiting here for the one who does deserve me, for the one who will discover the treasure that lies within their reach.  When I am found, the great value of that which I really am will be recognized, and then I will be cleaned off, polished up, gazed upon with loving eyes, and set in a precious...

Relationships 101

Patricia J. Crane, Ph.D.
"The journey of the heart is truly the only journey there is."  Relationships seem to be one of the hottest topics these days. Everyone wants one, but hardly anyone seems happy once they're in one! Most of the time when we are talking about relationships, we mean those intimate ones with a significant other. However, relationships abound in our lives, with a range from casual to intimate. In truth, all relationships provide us with opportunities to grow spiritually and practice unconditional love. Here are a few basics to remember when you are dealing with issues in relationships, whether with an intimate partner, a friend, or even a business colleague.  Relationships replay childhood dynamics and unhealed wounds. We bring others into our lives who will trigger these replays and thus help us with healing the past. Do you have a history of abandonment? Because of the Law of Attraction, you will tend to attract those who will abandon you until the old hurts are healed. With the "abandonment scenario"...
