In last weeks Mind the Gap Episode 20 on Healthy Relationships, Stephanie encouraged you to look at how you are being in relationship.
What did you learn?
The deep dive into relationships continues in this episode as Stephanie shares ways to achieve success...to get what you want in all relationships.
She speaks candidly about how and why your underlying beliefs (both conscious and unconscious) keep you stuck in patterns that destroy the very thing you are wanting to create...loving relationships.
What you will find eye opening is that you don't even realize you are part of the problem!
In a culture that loves to play victim and the blame game, Stephanie invites you to stop, make a new choice, step into your power, and go for what you want.
In other words, "Your life is the sum result of all the choices you make, both consciously and unconsciously. If you can control the process of choosing, you can take control of all aspects of your life. You can find the freedom that comes from being in charge of yourself."-Robert Bennett

"When we can no longer hide behind a role, we are pushed to present ourselves and then run the risk of real intimacy." -Anne Wilson Schaef
Why do they seem so hard for some of us?
It's no surprise on Stephanie's Mind the Gap Podcast Episode 3 On Relationships has been the most popular one so far. Well, of course it has!
Everything we experience in life is relational...whether we are dealing with personal relationships or professional ones, this is a hot topic and an area of life we all want to improve upon in some way.
In this week's episode, Stephanie takes you on a deeper dive into what it means to have a healthy relationship, the obstacles we face, and what we can do about it.
When it comes right down to it, if we want that amazing relationship, the question is, are we being amazing our self?
Tune in. Let's go! Listen Here.

"Transformation is through the body, not away from it. This is why no true master has ever advocating fighting or leaving the body, although their mind-based followers often have." -Eckhart Tolle
Previously I have written about the difference between knowledge and knowing. I shared my experience with Eckhart Tolle and how the only true way to "know" something, is to experience it.
What are you noticing...knowing?
This week I encourage you to become curious about what and how your physical body is trying to communicate with you.
I often say our physical body is a portal to what is really happening deep within. By deep within I mean beyond the mind and it's thoughts/story/narrative.
For example, ever notice how physical pain causes us to "do" something when it no longer becomes tolerable?
It's the moment when we feel "we have had enough of feeling tired/achy/lonely" (i.e.: suffering) and decide it's time to make a change. Time for transformation!!!
Perhaps we decide to become conscious of our food habits and choose to eat better.
Or, maybe it's time to lace up those sneakers and exercise.
And for some it's time to ease up on the physical body and get a massage or finally try yoga, etc.
And still for others perhaps there's a sense of the inner body that feels "off". Anxious, afraid, alone...endless cycle of emotional up and down.
Why does connecting with the body matter?
From a practical sense, we need it in order to live so why not take care of it the best we can?
On a deeper level, the physical body is a powerful doorway for us to access wisdom and therefore transformation. Can't change what you don't know/want to know :)
And while some wisdom traditions may teach denying the body and/or ignoring the body, in my experience, it is the exact opposite. We must pay attention and learn. Then apply those lessons in the form of action.
How do we access the physical body, in a deeper sense?
Yet one thread runs through all of it and that is the practice of presence...awareness. A.K.A - paying attention.
Some of us pay attention quite naturally and either choose to take action or not. Doing nothing is also a choice :)
Others of us engage in movement practices - yoga/running/walking outside/dance... to help us get in touch/feel the inner body.
And still others rely on meditation, massage, or other forms of energy healing to assist in bring us into deeper awareness.
There's no right or wrong way.
And the "way" may change over time as you change. Nothing is permanent in this world of form. Ha!
As I say-- the only "wrong" way to meditate is simply to not do it all.
And so it is with life and dealing with change. We will either consciously choose to listen to our body or not. Regardless, life / transformation happens anyway. We can embrace it (peaceful path) or fight it (suffering path).
I don't know about you. I rather the peaceful path.
