How to dysfunctional relationships:
Feeling insecure, unworthy or uncomfortable with intimacy with others can lead you to unconsciously seek out others that experience these same feelings. People that feel incomplete or find it difficult to be really close and connected to another human being.
In a dysfunctional relationship you’re likely to see behaviours like: substance use, codependency, narcissism, rage and volatility (i.e. physically, verbally or emotionally), dominant or controlling behaviors, infidelity, blaming, avoiding, attention seeking or being shut down, among others.

In our in-depth interview with David Mead, corporate trainer for the world-renowed thought leader Simon Sinek, we talk about how we can incorporate the “Start with Why” concept to how to improve your relationship.
How to Improve your Relationship
Several years ago I watched an incredible TedTalk by Simon Sinek who spoke about leadership and business and began the Start with why revolution.
We can adapt and apply the start with why concept to our relationships, even though it is mainly used in business. Be it a relationship with our romantic partner, family members, friends or even with ourselves.
While in our daily busy, stressed and over stimulated routine we can lose sight of our why. And because of this we get lost in all the to-do’s and running around patterns of behavior.We get caught up in urgency mode and lose sight of what’s important. This can be happening in your work and home environment if you don’t take the time to reflect and decide what is our heartfelt why to do what we do.
I invited David Mead, corporate trainer for the world-renowned thought leader Simon Sinek. To help you create more love, harmony, leadership and partnership in your relationship. And show you how to apply the start with why concept in your relationship, communication and decision-making process.
- First of all, we’ll cover the start with why concept and how to apply it in our relationships.

In today’s Relationship Lovecast we are going to be talking with John Gray author of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus about the How to Communicate Better in a Marriage.
How to Communicate Better in a Marriage
In working with couples for over 10 years, I have seen first hand the themes that come up for men and women when they are struggling in their relationship. For example, some men may feel like a failure or powerless while a women questions if she matters and feels hurt and sad. There are other instances where the couple has lost their spark and feel either frustrated, discouraged or rejected.
Knowing the main ways men and women differ in their approach, style, mental processing and coping mechanisms to deal with relationship challenges is key to understanding and accepting your partner as well as knowing how to communicate better and work as a team.
Even understanding the differences that exist between men and women when it comes to sex can be eye opening. Gaining insight into the biology involved in male and female sexuality, managing stress effectively, and increasing sex drive and emotional connection is the doorway into clarity and possibilities.

In today’s Relationship Lovecast episode we’re talking with Arielle Ford about how to Create a Better Relationship with your Wife.
How to create a Better Relationship
Your relationship gives you an opportunity to grow as a person and hopefully become the best version of yourself in the process. For me, my relationship is the greatest spiritual teacher in my life because it challenges me to grow and love more profoundly.
Relationships are like diamonds in the rough. Did you know that the world’s diamonds are formed in the Earth’s mantle about 100 miles beneath the surface where temperatures are at least 2000 degrees Fahrenheit? That’s an extremely high-pressure and high-temperature.
Then the bonding happens between the carbon atoms and together they form crystals, which then form a diamond. These carbon atoms need each other to survive the pressure. Couples also endure this kind of pressure through the trials and tribulations of life and need to maintain a strong bond to survive and overcome the obstacles that lie ahead.
Imagine greater ease in your relationship. Imagine more passion, harmony and friendship. We all long for that connection and understanding. Yet it is sometimes difficult to maintain when dealing with the ups and downs life has to offer.
Therefore I’ve invited Arielle Ford to discuss how create a better relationship. She is a nationally recognized publicist and marketing expert, producer, author and consultant. And she has also published seven books, including the popular Hot Chocolate For The Mystical Soul series. The Soulmate Secret: How To Manifest The Love of Your Life with the Law of Attraction and her upcoming book Turn your mate into your soulmate.
In our IN-DEPTH INTERVIEW with Arielle Ford, we will cover:
- First of all we’ll see how she her new book Turning Your Mate into Your Soulmate came to be.
