Trusting Your Intuition

The hits just keep on going, don’t they? I’m recording this show a few days after the shooting in the synagogue in Pittsburgh.

I’m realizing that by the time this show airs, we will have probably been hit by even more atrocities. This is relevant to today’s show because I will be discussing trusting your intuition; trusting your gut, and knowing where to find that.

Uncovering Emotional Abuse with Rhian Lockard

I’m currently enrolled in a course called Divine Communication, which is a program that Rhian Lockard created. It’s a course that helps you get in touch with your spirit guide and your intuition.

I knew I had to share Rhian with you. She’s a friend and a guide. Today, we have a conversation about emotional abuse. It’s not talked about as much as other forms of abuse, and it’s even a little harder to determine whether you are a victim of emotional abuse.

After listening to this conversation, I hope you will have some clarity about emotional abuse and what to do about it.

Patriarchy Stress Disorder with Dr. Valerie Baker

About a month ago someone in a Facebook group I’m in mentioned that there was a three-podcast series by another member of our group that had completely shifted everything in her life.

That’s a really bold statement, so at first I rolled my eyes and started to scroll on by. But then I saw the title of the series: Patriarchy Stress Disorder. And I’ll tell you the minute I read those words, everything changed for me too. I didn’t know what they meant, but I knew exactly what they meant.

In this episode I interview psychologist, author, and speaker, Dr. Valerie Baker who pioneers healing Patriarchy Stress Disorder™ (PSD)--the trauma of 1000s of years of oppression imprinted in women's DNA.

The Power of Personal Responsibility

In this solo episode, I talk about coming out of a pretty dark depression, and then move on to how taking personal responsibility can be the most empowering thing you can do for yourself.

I tell the story of when I was in nursery school and was told to apologize and literally couldn't, do a pretty amazing impression of my mom, and tell a really personal story about what having been molested as a child taught me about personal responsibility and growth.

My guest this week is Quentin Hafner. Quentin is a Marriage and Family Therapist who works with couples and men in his private practice in Orange County, CA.

In this episode Quentin and I dissect the biggest question of all: 

Should I Stay or Should I Go

In the course of this conversation we cover: 

  • Quentin's 6 non-negotiables in a relationship and what they should really mean for you.

  • Quentin's view of the 3 most common reasons people leave marriages—and if they're actually good enough reasons to leave.

  • My view of the 3 most common reasons people leave marriages and—if they're actually good enough reason to leave.

  • Why the fact that 68% of second marriages fail and 73% of third marriages fail really matters to the choice ahead of you right now.

  • Why 69% of marriages are ended by women, and what men can do to not be a casualty of that.

And MUCH more!!

The Blended Extended Upended Family with Deb Cooperman

I brought my friend Deb Cooperman on to talk about what she calls her blended, extended upended family.

When Deb met her ex husband, he had a one-year-old son, and in this episode she talks about the experience of co-parenting as a step-mom, and how her relationship with her ex, her step-son and his mom evolved over the course of their marriage, through their divorce, and beyond...

Deb's story is one of what's possible when three or more people really do some hard work on themselves in order to get through the harder feelings and into acceptance, and even love.
