We Goddesses love shoes right? Well I do NOW … for a few years I was on ‘simplify my shoes’ kick and had only one pair of sensible black shoes during those dark days … but I digress. Many shoes that show off our delightful feet are open and strappy. But what happens when you take your feet out of woolly socks for the first time in months and see just what they’ve been doing in the dark?
You’re probably aware that there are a host of articles, blogs and books on hot, sexy ways to turn on your lover with words and voice tone, including my own recent YourTango articles; “The Power of Pillow Talk” and "4 Quick Tips for a Sexier Voice".

As an Intimacy Coach, I find that when I’m one-to- one with my clients they are very vocal about what’s missing and what’s not but when their partner joins – eyes drop to the floor quick!

To live your best life with your true love, it’s all about YOU… YOUR peace of mind, your mindset, your vibrational level, your joy. YOU. I recently read a true story about a woman who was single and sick of it. She had been doing all the “inner work” to magnetize her soulmate. She had read all the books, set up her vision board, and her love altar, she even had her list complete, but nothing was happening in the love arena.
Have you ever found yourself drawn to the same type of person over and over again, simply because they are your "type"? Do you routinely email the same kind of men on your online dating site? Or perhaps you find yourself in the same kind of relationships, one after the next. It's as if your dating life is on some sort of loop, and you can't change the song.
Dr. Lynda Klau Dear Woman, Are you more “burned out” than you realize, running on empty most of the time? Are you too drained to be truly present with the closest people in your life?
