When You Tripped Up It took a while for Mike to realize this, but his biggest trip up was that he was more interested in providing solutions to his partner instead of listening to her. The “DUH” moment that changed your partnerships forever Mike was at a point in his life that he was in relationship mode.  He was single, but very interested in being in a relationship and settling down. He met a woman and pursued her hard.  And it was really hard to pin her down. His “DUH” moment was recognizing that she was not in relationship mode.  She was in career building mode. Finally, Mike realized that she was not available to focus on a relationship and moved on. Proudest moment in partnership Mike met his girlfriend Kelly while he was in “go have fun” mode and had plans to move to San Diego in a month and a half. Her boundaries and her openness about what made her happy that had Mike change all his plans to move and stay in New Jersey.  And he couldn’t be happier about that decision. What is the best partnership / relationship advice you have ever received? Listen to your woman.  Don’t solve her problem. Boundaries give your partner a roadmap to your heart.

159: Follow Your “Yes” #48 – Follow your “Yes” even when it scares you
Do you follow your "Yes?" Following your "Yes" is about you taking a step forward in your partnerships by taking action and applying at least one thing you heard from our guests during their interviews this week. On today’s episode, all of this week’s guests have generously provided BONUS MATERIAL, not included in the interviews you listened to earlier this week. Each one has provided incredible examples of the power of following your “Yes”.  Enjoy! Riana Milne Not Following - When Riana found out that her ex-husband downloaded her will to see what assets she had, she “forgave” it and turned a blind eye.  Then some other things showed up.  She knows now that she should have walked away, but you live in hope that everything will be OK. No relationship is perfect so she justified things because she was in love.  As you heard during Riana’s interview that was a big mistake that led to lots of pain for her and her family. Following - Riana wanted to get her message about childhood trauma to a larger audience. She went to an event and received an offer to work with a coach at a very high price and she felt it was the right thing to do.  She had no fear around it and knew it was her “Yes.”  And she has created huge success from following this “Yes”  including the new school she is launching now. Listen to Riana's full interview here Connect with Riana - Riana's website Facebook Twitter YouTube Helena Hart Not Following - Helena applied for a Phd program to be a clinical psychologist and didn’t think she’d get in, because they are hard to get into.  A big part of her was kind of hoping she wouldn’t get in.  Then she could say she tried and she could go do what she really wanted to do. When she got in, she had to move someplace she couldn’t stand and everything in her was saying “this isn’t your path” but she still kept going. A year an a half later she dropped out of the program.  And she wishes she had listened to herself, but back then she was always looking outside herself for someone to help her make the big decisions. Helena was afraid that everyone would be disappointed in her or not understand when she finally dropped out, but they just wanted her to be happy.  Following - Helena knew for about a year she wanted to be a relationship coach.  And then one day she received an email from her mentor Rory Rate about the first time she was offering a coaching training program. Helena got on the phone with her and even though she tends to be quite cautious when spending large sums of money, everything in her was a “Yes” and she enrolled on the spot. It was THE best decision she ever made and her life is completely different now as a result.  She is living the life of her dreams because of that one decision.  Listen to Helena's full interview here Connect with Helena - Helena's website Facebook

When You Tripped Up In Helena’s partnership with her own desires she was seeking fulfillment outside of herself. Then she started seeing her patterns via trial and error.  She was notorious for breaking up and getting back together. The shift was when she started only dating men whose energy was coming towards her.  This shifted everything.  Proudest moment in partnership Helena is a self proclaimed perfectionist and tends to do everything on her own. In the past couple of years she has opened up and been able to help many more women by partnering with other coaches. By trusting herself enough to partner it paid off huge, both for herself and for the women who they were able to help through this partnership. What is the best partnership / relationship advice you have ever received? When you look at your man, you have a choice in that moment.  You can either think about something that you like about him.  Something he does that has you feel cherished and adored.  Or you can think about whatever it is that’s irritating you or bothering you about him. That choice is yours. Best Partnership Resource   By - Rory Raye Interview Links - Helena's website Facebook

What she learned from the scientific hand analysis she received has set her free to follow her purpose without doubting it. Scientific Hand Analysis vs. Palm Reading Scientific Hand Analysis shows you how your brain is wired.  The lines in your hands are correlated to the neural pathways in your brain. What does your Heart Line show you? The Heart Line reflects how you express love and how you receive love.  Plus any heart lessons you are experiencing. My dominant hand reflects how I am in the outer world and my other hand reflects how I am in my inner world and my inner circle or closest loved ones. Hear Anna read my Heart Line live and unfiltered on this show… You’ll hear Anna nail an episode of betrayal that happened when I was in the 6th grade from looking at my hands. Plus what a bubble on my Heart Line means, and where I’m bending backwards. The main lines that are in your hand are: Heart line - how you express and how you love. Head line - your style of thinking and how you process information. Life line - your energy level.  Your lifestyle. Fate line - your career path and follow through. Also your fingerprints indicate your purpose, your lesson and your life school.  This is your North Star in your life.

185: Robert Kandell – Being responsible with your communication
Hailed as “part football coach, part loving Dad, and part slightly crazed drill sergeant” Robert Kandell has spent the last sixteen years helping people re-energize their lives and build better relationships through more honest and authentic connection. After building a successful consulting firm in San Francisco, he then took his business acumen and co-founded OneTaste in 2004 with Nicole Daedone. Taking on the challenging task of bringing conscious sexuality to the mainstream market, Robert built the company from scratch to a high seven-figure international corporation. He left OneTaste in 2014 to start his own Consulting firm helping small businesses become marketable and profitable. Robert is also an accomplished teacher, coach, and lecturer. He brings his enthusiasm and acumen to his weekly podcast, Tuff Love, on subjects around relationships, intimacy, communication and gender dynamics. Guiding Principle, Quote or Mantra Don’t withhold. Tell the truth and be deliberate. And Being responsible with your communication. What’s behind sexual shame for men? Robert explains that everyone has shame, at least a little of it. And shame is when someone doesn’t feel 100% fine with talking about something. Society puts really strong boxes around what is “appropriate” - what you can talk about, what you can think about, what you can fantasize about. Most people who are outside those boxes find it hard to express their feelings and thoughts. It’s even harder for men because men “aren’t supposed to express their feelings”. Find out the rest of what Robert had to say by listening to the podcast. What can women do to support the men in their lives who are feeling sexual shame? Robert explains that the main thing you can do is to practice approval. Think of a computer with a virus. You don’t throw out the computer, you instead work to isolate and eliminate the virus. It’s the same situation when it comes to people. Making sure that you’re on your partner’s side, that you approve of them as a human being, and you will work with them to explore and better the situation, will help alleviate any sexual shame. What have you noticed from the “swipe right” society that has developed in recent years? Robert believes that it’s been a mess but there is hope. The first thing he notices is the balance of masculine and feminine dynamics. There’s also been a big change in terms of male and female roles. In just one generation, we’ve seen the gender pay gap shrink. It’s gone from 64 cents i the 80’s to currently, 94 cents per dollar. This has enabled women to make their own choices, rather than rely on a man financially. Because of this, you’ll see a portion of men quit on things and look towards video games and porn, rather than the dating scene. This topic was so interesting and Robert had so many amazing things to say. To hear the rest of what he had to say, listen to the podcast. What’s your outtake on “ghosting” and the impact from it? Ghosting is defined as basically not completing a communication cycle. What’s happened with social media and today’s digital world, we assume communication is done once we send a text, comment, or email. We’ve learned to be very lazy communicators. Robert believes that there are two types of ghosting. One would be because people believe there is an endless amount of other, easier ways of getting the same result, and two, some people believe that it’s nicer to just stop all communication, rather than saying that you’re not interested. In reality, this is not true. What is the best partnership / relationship advice you have ever received? You can’t see all of who you are without an outside approving look.

182: Kim Sarasin – Knowing how to be a queen
Kim Sarasin – The Queen of Hearts - is one of North America’s most sought-after relationship experts. With over 50,000 fans & followers and a 97% success rate for connecting women with their soulmate, Kim has a long list of happy clients, and a wealth of tips and tools to help you attract your King. She is a regular guest expert on CTV, CBC, Global TV and a featured writer for National print and online magazines. Guiding Principle, Quote or Mantra In order to attract a king you must know how to be a queen. When You Tripped Up 20 years ago, Kim felt like she was constantly tripping up. What ultimately drove her down to California in seek of help was being stuck in a continuous cycle of attracting men that were no good for her. She would stay in these relationships way past their expiry and then finally end up dumping them. She would then go and find a nice guy but would soon after get bored and didn’t know how to receive his kindness. She’d soon after lose all interest, steamroll over him, and go out and find a new bad boy. That cycle would go on for years and years until she finally made a change. That “Duh” moment in partnership Kim was doing all this research on how to attract the right guy and maintain those relationships. She wanted to end her cycle and wanted to know how to ask for what she wants from men. From successful relationships that she observed, she quickly noticed that the women were so great at asking for what they wanted from their men. After further research on the topic it all started to make total sense. What helps a women shift from being “the best man in the room”? Kim explains that women have become production junkies. She shares that this is obviously amazing that women are where they are and moving in the right direction, but we need to find a balance between our feminine and masculine. It’s not about compressing the masculine, but rather simply bringing out the feminine. You need to allow the man to do things for you, otherwise they’ll feel like they’re not needed. What is the best partnership / relationship advice you have ever received? Adopt the habit of appreciating men.

Adam’s vision reads as follows: I stand for a world where men can incorporate all the best attributes of masculinity and femininity in harmony in order to discover the best version of themselves. How did you get started doing the work you do? Adam has been a chef for a long time and in the past allowed drugs and alcohol to get the best of him because of the high stress and lifestyle of being in that industry. After being in the industry for upwards of 35 years, he’s watched young people come up through the industry and struggle with the same problems. These young individuals would have loads of talent and really excel at their positions, but struggled with using drugs and alcohol. He saw himself in them and began modelling and guiding their lifestyles. Find out more by listening to the podcast. Guiding Principle, Quote, or Mantra What do you stand for? And If I’m going to ask someone to be transparent and vulnerable, then I have to be able to do that first. When You Tripped Up Adam takes us back to a time when he received his first Executive Chef position. Within the same company there was a Food and Beverage Director who was thought of being an old school individual who looked at younger people as being sort of punks. Turns out, they ended up having a great relationship and was actually asked to mentor the director’s son, who had plans to become a chef. Find out where this story took a turn by listening to the podcast. Why do you think so many men are so far off the path? Adam described it as being a number of things, from your upbringing, social media, television, society, and more. We’re constantly bombarded with messaging that you’re not good enough and that you need to be a certain way, that it’s hard to follow any path. What Adam shared next was a huge eye opener.

Adam Lamb Not Following - Adam had a second back surgery and was taking pain killers about a year before surgery and about a year and a half after surgery.

Listen to Adam’s interview here Connect with Adam - His Website Facebook ‘The Morning MANifesto’ ‘MANifesto Radio’ www.aninitiatedman.com Amy Schuber  Not Following - When Amy was looking to change her career and looking to change her life, she was living in San Francisco at the time. During that time she had an opportunity to move back to Southern California and into this beautiful beach bungalow in Balboa Island. She ended up saying no. She knew she should have said yes but she didn’t. Even other people were telling her to move, because she was just getting out of a relationship and out of the corporate world. It was an opportunity for change. She said no and knew it should have been a yes. She ended up moving there two years later. Following - Once she did move to Southern California and was exploring career paths, she took an entrepreneurial women’s group.

Jamie Elizabeth Thompson – Empowered desire approach
Jamie has had a career helping individual and couples become fully self-expressed, empowered, and deeply met in sex and intimacy for 11 years. She specializes in helping impact-driven couples get outside the box they are currently in and explore new desires safely, let go of sexual shame, and quickly move through conflict about intimacy. She is the creator of 'Turn On Your Erotic Wiring™' which teaches couples and individuals how to Have the best sex of their lives Break through plateaus inside AND outside the bedroom through expanding their 'Erotic Menu™’. Guiding Principle, Quote, or Mantra The empowered desire approach - Responsibility, curiosity, and vulnerability. When You Tripped Up There was a tendency that Jamie played out in several relationships that she described as her trip up. Her tendency was to want to control her partner and manage their experience. She’s always been very intense so it was showing up in her relationships by trying to control everything. When she wasn’t able to control she would begin to be resentful towards her partner and the situation. Where she figured out how to work with her actions was by giving herself her own playground where she could be at her full self. That place was the bedroom. She could exercise her full potential. She set up a container where she could be a lot and not limit herself. What she found by creating this was this deep bodied surrender. Why was the bedroom your chosen safe playground? There was a simple seed of desire that made me want to play with this in the bedroom. She wanted to go to a new space where she felt control and where she could lose control. It felt like the best place to explore that. Proudest Moment in Partnership There was a moment where her partner was really upset. Jamie would normally go into a defensive reaction or a care-taking reaction. What she’s been working on is to be able to take their reaction but not take things personally or take away from their experience. She’s been so used to showing up as a coach rather than a partner in the relationship.

David Dachinger & Tamara Green – Experiencing every moment
This is an amazing couple.  Not only are David Dachinger and Tamara Green married, they also are the co-founders of Loving Meditations and authors of the international bestseller, Live Calm With Cancer (and Beyond…). David is a Grammy® nominated composer, fire lieutenant and stage-4 cancer survivor. Tamara is a psychotherapist, dating & relationship coach, and meditation facilitator, who Elle Magazine dubbed “the soul-centered relationship and meditation expert.” Their cancer journey transformed and inspired them to pay their experiences forward to the cancer community. Together they create mindful wellness stress-reduction tools that dynamically assist those living with cancer and other major life challenges. Loving Meditations offers the only app specifically designed to help cancer patients, survivors and caregivers cope with their physical and emotional symptoms. When Did You Need to Work On This From A Mindfulness Standpoint? Tamara has had a mindfulness practice for quite some time, even before David’s diagnosis. Tamara had about two weeks of real worry and overwhelm after they received the news on his stage 4 cancer and their son’s lyme disease. One night she was thinking to herself on what advice she would give someone if they were going through the same feelings and emotions. She would recommend a spiritual practice, and mindful and meditation centre. She began to follow her own advice and she began to feel much better. Guiding Principle, Quote, or Mantra Make light of dark situations. AND I am here now, I am experiencing this in every moment. The Impact Meditation Has on Us Meditation can have a huge impact on healing someone. They not only cover meditation for the caregiver and patient, but started covering impact areas like Creating Calm, Personal Power and Vital Recharge for Caregivers. They’ve created support that not only helps someone in the moment, but supports them for years to come. Your Experience as the Patient It seemed even more impactful for David because he was a professional healthcare provider. He went from being the caregiver to the patient. He had to really get into the mainframe of receiving help from not only doctors and treatment, but also Tamara, friends and family. He really had to learn how to embrace the gifts that people were giving him through companionship and support. When You Tripped Up Tamara’s biggest trip up was during those first two weeks after they found out about the diagnosis. She felt like she wasn’t even in her own body. She didn’t feel helpful towards herself or for her guys; she was just going through the motions. There was one evening down the road in particular that she felt completely helpless. She needed a sign that everything was going to be alright. Find out this incredible story by listening to the interview. Proudest Moment in Partnership She describes her proudest moment being her entire courtship with her husband. She had put so much work into understanding her patterns and finding her vision, and now everything had paid off. When her and her husband first started to know each other, she felt great going into it, felt confident with everything, and it resulted in her finding her person. What is the best partnership / relationship advice you have ever received? Relationships are sacred. AND Make sure that you laugh and dance.
