Ciara became a mom last week, finally shutting up all those nasty rumors that emerged when she first broke through the music scene that she was actually born a man. (First off, how rude!
Building trust is one of the biggest concerns couples come to me with each week. It is a simple and a difficult task that requires intentions in all your interations together.

Even if you think you know your partner’s answer, stay open to the possibility that they could surprise you. Answering these can be a great starting point to becoming even stronger together.
Divorce coach Susan Herrera knew she was ready to move on from her failed marriage when she admitted to herself that she didn't want it to be over. Read on to learn how admitting and recognizing the pain will help you move on in your life and how Herrera was able to find her happiness…and how you can, too.
Staring at the pieces of your shattered relationship will only get you down. Get a dust pan, sweep them up and move on! Life goes by too quickly for any of us to spend time (wasted time) mulling over an ex. I know it’s hard to move on, but don’t put it off. It’s truly one of the best ways to be happy. The longer you dwell on your failed relationship the more you’ll stay stuck in the past. Soon misery will become your new best friend.
You’re a woman. You KNOW that we men are visual creatures. What does she look like? Woah-dont get whiplash from that head whipping around! Excuse me-my eyes are up HERE! You’ve seen it happen, may be involved in it happening, and may even do some of it yourself (Ryan Gosling, Maxwell…need I say more?).
In political chambers throughout the country, including in our national Capitol, political leaders give annual addresses to talk about how we are doing and what challenges we need to face in the year ahead. Thinking about the highlights offered in the State of the Union tonight, there are similar categories that you could use to evaluate your union. How would you rate your marriage, domes
Have you ever heard the phrase “Keep doing what you’re doing, get more of what you got,” made popular by Werner Erhard? Either way, you will soon see why this truth begs an introduction to what I call your “tomorrow me.” That’s the YOU that’s here today representing the you of tomorrow (and the next day, and so on).
Last weekend I got the most amazing voicemail from my guru. And when I say guru, I mean guru, the kind that meditate for hours on end, have given up all attachments, and are on the path towards enlightenment. He is 90 years old, looks like he is 60, and has been in my life since I was a small child. As a child, I would hear him speak and feel moved to live my life with ease, gratitude, and happiness. He first came to America from India in 1978, the year I was born, by way of Harvard.
As a parent, you want what is best for your children. You want them to be smarter, better looking and more well-rounded than you are. You want them to be liked by their peers and to succeed in school. As such, you worry. And, with worrying comes anxiety which can turn into depression. Here are five ways to help you stop worrying so much:
Often, when we get in touch with our most heartfelt and hopeful dreams, what may also surface are some of our doubts. There is an important relationship between (what I refer to as) the dreamer and the doubter that live inside of us. It is useful and necessary to develop skills for dealing with our doubt; otherwise your dreams could very well get squelched.
We bet you anticipate, nay expect, androids to be incorporated into everyday life by 2050 — but we bet you didn't count on the fact that in 2050 our "ladies of the night" could also require oil changes and scratch-resistant coatings.
Part of finding more dates is getting right with yourself. If you're too busy listening to the conversations in your head, then chances are that opportunities are passing you by right and left. If you are stuck on past failed attempts, how can you be successful at talking to the person right in front of you? When you engage in these destructive behaviors, your relationships continue to suffer.
What is your theme for 2012 going to be? I’m not asking what your goals are with accomplishments by dates, or what your resolutions are going to be. Rather, what your vision or dream for the upcoming year is going to be. What do you feel energy or excitement around? What is it that you will be able to wrap yourself around and embrace? What is the thing that you can really connect with? What engages your imagination and feels compelling. That “something” that makes you want to work towards it, give it life, and make it dance!
With 2012 rapidly approaching, many people are talking about how uncertain they are about the future. Uncertainty about the economy, the upcoming elections, the environment....you name it. Is your mind running you ragged with worry? Is uncertainty stealing your peace this Christmas? Do you struggle to plug into your intuitive guidance when you need it most?
A good friend of mine told me a while back that if I couldn’t articulate in my mind what it was I wanted for my life I would never get it. She was right. It’s not that I don’t know what I want for my life even though most of us can articulate what we don’t want a lot easier than what we do want. Once we say it, think it, or write it down, it’s tangible…it’s out there, and we can no longer ignore it. It’s not a matter of being self-centered. It’s saying I will no longer settle for what comes my way. I want to choose.
