So how's life?
I'm glad you are here. Today I want to talk about relationships and few simple tips to make them more fulfilling.
It's such a charged word, isn't it? Relationship - Romance, affair, connection, partnership, whatever you call it, it evokes strong feelings and responses. We invest so much in our personal relationships, but sometimes we forget the basic, fundamental, ground rules. I mean that we need to be present, be honest and respectful.
If you are just starting out or already in a long term relationship, I have a few tips that may help your connection grow and blossom. If you are looking for someone and need help with the maze of online dating I have a special package located here. (Limited time only - so enroll now!)
Let's take it from the beginning, you met someone you like and are now dating. Below are five incredibly easy, yet valuable tips to ensure you and your partner get the most out of your time together.
All those tips sound so easy, don't they? For instance, of course you're going to be honest, right? But this includes those little "white lies" people often tell, such as, "I love camping" when in fact they have never been or "I adore football!" When in fact they can't stand the sport. Start from the beginning being honest. Be polite, but let your date know that you have never been camping. If you are open to trying it, tell them, if not also include that. Saying, "I don't think it would suit me." Now can save a lot of drama and unhappiness later. So when in doubt, always be honest.
Also before you begin a new relationship free yourself and heal from your past relationships. If you do not think its possible at this point, then wait to start dating. It's not fair to your partner or yourself to carry around past lovers baggage and emotional pain.
While being honest, don't forget to be yourself. How can you get an idea if you are a good match if you are pretending to be something or someone else? Be honest about what you like and don't like and always be yourself.
While taking the time to be honest, don't forget to show respect to your partner. Respect means that while you do not have to agree on everything, your opinion is not superior and your partners opinion MATTERS. Try to respect all people and especially your partner. As a side note, if you are dating someone you do not respect, end the relationship. We will speak more about that next week.
One of the most precious commodities we possess is time. Your time is very important, but so is your partners. Are you making time in your busy day to text? Leave notes at home? Carving out time for a "date night"? It is very important to any relationship, no matter how mature or how fresh for the participants to value and make time for each other. If you aren't making it a priority to make time for each other, start today.

"My zone of genius is around mentoring, guiding and coaching inspired, creative, conscious and spiritual entrepreneurs and individuals to connect with their deepest desires and values so they can rise with grace. I believe in treating the "whole person" and with simple energetic shifts they can reach their highest potential and serve from a place of inner peace and fulfillment."
