When your favorite actor is unable to seduce you because an off-screen man stole your heart away ... you know you are in deep deep trouble. So I finally caved and went in for some serious healing in New York. Taking a cue from the late singer Marvin Gaye I admitted my need for some healing of my own. Then I went out and got the remedies. No, I did not visit one of those shops, rather it was time to get more serious about my Tantra yoga practice and bring a certain issue to a BodyTalk session.
Only now can I see his halo even though he was a pure Devil to me. Using his mastery of human dynamics he tricked me into falling hard and fast the moment I first saw him. Just like Sonny conned Isabelle into falling for an impossible love dream. Either that or Cupid used a javelin instead of an arrow the day we met. Whatever instigated the spell it did the trick. Getting hurt often opens the door to discovering that you have a whole lot of karma to burn.
I was going to do Part 2 of this story in the form of an interview but I couldn't get through it. Things got very heated and ended in a yelling match. So here is what happened and the back story on the "The Married Cheater." He cheated first, she found out...I guess he told her. She decided to deal with it and they went on with life as a married couple. About 3 years later, he was diagnosed with a potentially deadly disease. It was touch and go for almost a year and not long after he was given a clean bill of health (a week after to be exact) SHE DROPPED A BOMB ON HIM!
If your world has been rocked by an emotional affair or by infidelity, it can be devastating and heartbreaking. It can also be a natural response to want to get even and do to the other what has been done to you. Rather than following the ways of the Romans - which didn't quite work out for them, by the way - it's healthier to refrain from getting even and work on getting better. Whether you caused it or were the unfortunate casualty of a painful affair, it's important to work on yourself and deciding if there is a relationship worth saving.
At the temple of Delphi, the ancient Greeks proclaimed, “Know thyself and nothing in excess,” two very wise statements that can help us all today. As we move forward into 2012, the key theme is BALANCE—balancing work and play, saving and spending, moving forward or staying put, staying flexible while maintaining stability. Yes, we all have choices to make constantly. We are all in a state of flux, growing and changing as we become more of who we inherently are.
It is time to write your own saga of love! This video conversation will help you answer the Who, Where, When, What and How you can shift into personal confidence and trusting within, so you can build relationships that support both partners in expansion.

Earlier this year, blogger Caitlyn Boyle began "Operation Beautiful," a movement that encourages women to tack inspirational Post-It notes onto the mirrors of public bathrooms. By reminding other women that they are beautiful, the movement's participants transformed the way they saw themselves. That simple act of kindness got us thinking—can helping people with relationships improve our own love lives?
According to a new study cited in The New York Times, infidelity is on the rise. The study also concluded that young women are closing the gap on what has largely been thought of as bad behavior for men—apparently, nearly as many women are cheating on their partners and spouses. This did not surprise me in the slightest—a large number of women I know in my age group have cheated on boyfriends. So why do women cheat? What are the circumstances that led to their infidelity? And how did they feel about it in the aftermath? After the jump, 13 anonymous confessions from women who have cheated.
When I asked an old friend why she hadn't just broken up with her live-in boyfriend instead of beginning a messy affair with a married neighbor, she snapped, "Don't be stupid—nobody leaves a relationship without having another one in place." Oh, please, I corrected her. Of course they do. People fall out of love or get angry and leave without a safety net all the time. But as I thought back, I realized that for as long as I knew her, she never had. Even when she pretty much hated the one she was with, she stuck it out until she'd lined up his replacement. I could never understand why. My friend is beautiful, successful and very smart; surely being single for a little while wouldn't end her world.
Monday night's CBS lineup had an intersection of three interesting things: sit-coms, one-night stands and karma. Somehow the programs How I Met Your Mother, Two And A Half Men and Rules of Engagement all featured plot-lines revolving around men receiving comeuppance for bad behavior regarding one-night stands. Is the universe tell us something through Neil Patrick Harris, Charlie Sheen and David Spade?
Jessica Simpson may have jinxed her romance Tony Romo by opening up a little too much in People magazine. Or at least so goes conventional wisdom. Maybe she's in love and just wants to shout it from the rooftops (or magazine pages) and doesn't care about who knows.
