Ahh, soulmates. We’ve all been fed the romantic notion that there’s one perfect someone out there for us. Everyone has one perfect soulmate, and if we’re lucky, we’ll find each other and live happily ever after. The stars will align for us: we’ll be born at the same time (give or take a few or twenty years) and after living our lives a little, we’ll magically end up in the same part of the world at exactly the right time to fall head over heels in love. We’ll know instantly when we meet.

In today's fast paced world, it's easy to get energetically depleted to the point where you are drained, just wrung dry of your own inner life force and beauty. This is where Reiki comes to the rescue. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese word that means "universal life force energy," which is just a complicated way of saying, "unconditional pure love." The first known person to use what is now called "Reiki" was the young prince who became the Buddha, but it is not Buddhist.
A woman wrote recently to ask my advice about what to say to her guy about his not telling her what he was going to be doing. Her concern was not wanting to wait for him. I’m afraid I gave her more than she bargained for. My advice: If you don’t have a date set, with a time, say nothing. He is a free individual and can do anything he wants. He shouldn’t have to tell you where he is and what he’s doing. You either trust him or you don’t.
There's a lot of recent research showing that women behave differently when they are ovulating – dressing in more provocative ways, boosting their desire to head out to parties, staring more at handsome symmetrical men, and feeling a boost in attraction toward strangers (if those strangers are handsomer than their current partners).

A lonely wife criticizes her husband as uncaring, thoughtless, and she says she suspects he is unfaithful. He withdraws from the verbal barrage and turns to others who treat him more gently.

Would You Want To Be Married To You? I know that this might appear to be a strange question, yet I’m serious about it! Would you want to be married to you? In this world, so many people are self-centered and want to know what’s in it for them. Their relationships, whether personal or business, are about what they are going to get, and seldom about what they are going to give.

By Carol Allen Let me tell you a sad, but all—too common, story. A client of mine had met a great new guy. He'd been treating her really well — going out of his way to help her with a big business drama with a man from her past, and even helping her with her taxes. (Can you say SAINT?) Things were going so well, in fact, that he'd even included her in a dinner party with his three best friends and his mother — all within seven weeks!
