Now more than ever, we're being asked to be alone. We're being asked to spend time indoors and away from our loved ones. We've never been in this position before. Which is why it's more important than ever to take this opportunity to care for ourselves like never before.  Heather Pennell is a guide, facilitator, and healer. And she knows a thing or two about being alone. We go deep on how to lean into love, how to be peaceful and happy in our solitude, and how to set ourselves up for that eventual relationship.  This episode isn't just for the single folks. It's for everyone who wants to develop a better relationship with themselves. This work will pay dividends for the rest of your life, and in all your relationships.    What you'll learn (or why you should care): • How being of service can get you out of your head and into your heart • How to be in right relationship with your emotions • The importance of getting your needs met outside of your primary romantic relationship.   Where to find Heather: Instagram https://www.instagram.com/heyheatherobscura   Resources: Free Inner Child Meditation program: https://risingwoman.com/healing-your-inner-child-meditation/ Rising Woman's Heal Your Relationships Program: https://risingwoman.com/heal-your-relationships/ Michael A.

Take a Break, Dude

Take a Break, Dude

2020-03-0310:57

Everyone needs a break, even you. Rest is crucial to growth. If you're working overtime trying to fix, solve, or improve a situation in your life, sometimes a break is what's needed. Take a step back, put the sword down, and relax. Let time do what it needs to do and relax into the present moment. And while you do that, I'll join you. The Love Drive is taking March off from publishing podcasts. I'll continue to write and publish micro-blogs on Instagram and on my newsletter. Consider joining me there until April.  And don't worry, I have some incredible conversations that I'm excited to release in April. Happy March, lovebird.

Welcome to the most intimate episode of the podcast, yet. Sophie Josephina is a conscious sex and intimacy coach and we go deep on the paradox of masculine and feminine energies and their roles in modern relationships. From how men can own their feminine side while still holding space for their partners, to how women can put their inner-dude aside and fully surrender to the strong masculine. You won't want to miss this.    What you'll learn (or why you should care): • How to hold space for difficult emotions (including men crying) • How to be in service while staying in your masculine power • How women can learn to relax into their feminine while staying safe   Where to find Sophie: Instagram https://www.instagram.com/sophie.josephina/   The Intro to Great Sex Workshop Inviting Intimacy Into Your Bedroom https://thelovedrive.com/greatsex   Learn more about The Love Drive Website https://thelovedrive.com/ Instagram https://www.instagram.com/thelovedrive Newsletter https://thelovedrive.com/newsletter
Let's create an environment for an orgasm to come and go as it pleases, rather than being hyper-focused on the orgasm itself. Pleasure and connection is the main goal of lovemaking, not orgasm. Orgasm is a by-product of desire, arousal, safety, intimacy, and pleasure.   The Intro to Great Sex Workshop - Invite Intimacy into Your Bedroom 125 USD https://thelovedrive.com/greatsex To book a coaching call https://thelovedrive.com/coaching Learn more about The Love Drive Website https://thelovedrive.com/ Instagram https://www.instagram.com/thelovedrive Become a Contributing Lovebird Support The Love Drive here https://thelovedrive.com/join/

You are 100% responsible for your sexual health. And when you care for your own, you care for your partner's sexual health as well. If you can't talk about sexual health, you shouldn't be having sex. But don't worry. Talking about it doesn't have to be so scary, especially when you have the exact script to use. Oh, and let's not forget that being confident talking about sex is a huge turn on.  The Intro to Great Sex Workshop - Invite Intimacy into Your Bedroom 125 USD https://thelovedrive.com/greatsex To book a coaching call https://thelovedrive.com/coaching Learn more about The Love Drive Website https://thelovedrive.com/ Instagram https://www.instagram.com/thelovedrive Become a Contributing Lovebird Support The Love Drive here https://thelovedrive.com/join/
Great sex takes work; we rarely stumble across it. Great sex requires the self-awareness to know what we want, the courage to ask for it, and the trust to open up to someone to have it with.  Dr. Alexandra Solomon is a licensed clinical psychologist, a mother, a wife, and the author of Taking Sexy Back: How to Own Your Sexuality & Create the Relationships You Want. We go deep on what it takes to have great sex with yourself, and with others.    What you'll learn (or why you should care): • The importance of checking in with your desires and needs • How sex is hard to talk about but essential for a great sex life • The importance of cultivating curiosity in your long-term relationships   Where to find Alexandra: Website http://www.dralexandrasolomon.com/ Instagram https://www.instagram.com/dr.alexandra.solomon/ Taking Sexy Back https://amzn.to/2uBh0Ws   Resources and Links Desires, fears, and boundaries https://www.instagram.com/tv/B4z1TCgBNdo/   The Intro to Great Sex Workshop Inviting Intimacy Into Your Bedroom.

You must learn to advocate for your needs. Because if you don't, who will? This is your work and no one else's. You are 100% responsible for your happiness and fulfillment in life.  No one.  Part one of getting your needs met is to identify what they are. Then to find ways of getting them met, and finally to dare to ask for them to be met. It's time to get to work. You can do it.  Magic Moon - Create The Love Life of Your Dreams February 23rd from 13h to 17h in Montreal, Quebec https://www.facebook.com/events/489324105325725/ The Intro to Modern Dating Workshop  125 USD https://thelovedrive.com/moderndating To book a coaching call https://thelovedrive.com/coaching Learn more about The Love Drive Website https://thelovedrive.com/ Instagram https://www.instagram.com/thelovedrive Become a Contributing Lovebird Support The Love Drive here https://thelovedrive.com/join/
Let It Go in 2020

Let It Go in 2020

2020-01-1412:571

Letting go doesn't mean giving up; it means releasing control over what you have no control over, which is just about everything. Your actions and your reactions are the two main factors that you have control over. Everything else is an illusion. Can you give others space and freedom to show up for you in a way that makes sense for them? Can you do what you need to do to take care of yourself and let others take care of themselves? Let it go. All of it. Letting go of control is one of the most liberating actions you can do for yourself.

What does it mean to have your needs met? Can you get clear on what those needs are, and then find language to communicate those needs in a way that is easy for people to meet?

Make your needs easy to meet.  What happens when the values you hold dear don't line up with those of your partner? How do you leave a loving relationship, knowing that you deserve more?

Your relationship needs intimacy, passion, and commitment if you want it to stand the test of time. Not only that, you need enough of these three qualities to help you get through the rough or dull parts. And lastly, you need realistic expectations of what a relationship can realistically provide.
