007: How to talk with your partner about sex

007: How to talk with your partner about sex

Not getting your sexual needs met within your relationship is a source of great pain for many couples.

 

This is because most couples don’t know how to talk about sex, including their sexual desires and challenges in a way that feels safe and secure, or in a way that they don’t fear being judged or made wrong.

 

That’s why in today’s episode, I’m going to show how you can create a container of communication to talk about your sex and intimate life in a way that feels safe, easy, and natural.

 

The communication practice I’m going to detail for you today is called: The Reveal. This is a practice that you’ll do before having sex once a week until talking about sex feels natural. Then, I’m going to detail how to do The Recap – a communication practice that you’ll do after having sex so you’re not left in the dark wandering how things are for your partner or assuming things about the experience that might set you up for long-term relationship issues.

006: How to reignite passion and desire after postpartum depression with Lauren Venable

006: How to reignite passion and desire after postpartum depression with Lauren Venable

In today’s interview episode, Lauren Venable and I talk about postpartum depression, the loneliness of motherhood in the early days and how Lauren got matched with a counselor/energy healer that was able to help her get out of her undiagnosed depression.

 

In the interview, Lauren shares how it took 3 counseling sessions before she could even answer the question: “What do you want?” and how she went into counseling thinking she needed to fix her marriage only to be surprised that it was more about learning how to take care of herself.

 

She also shares how difficult it was to admit the level of support she needed in order to feel like a happy, whole, passionate and radiant woman again. We also talk about how your radiance and light is a much greater gift than your selfless service ever could be.

 

Learn how Lauren was able to reignite her passion and desire after struggling with undiagnosed postpartum depression as she chose to sit with fear, instead of waiting to overcome it.

 

Lauren is a meditation junkie on a mission to help women experience more wholeness, passion, and self-love in their lives. She graduated with a BA in Psychology in 2011 and went on to become a certified Yoga Instructor before settling in as a wife and stay-at-home mom at 24.

 

After 2 years of quietly struggling with Postpartum Anxiety & Depression, she began her journey of self-healing and become a certified Reiki Practitioner in 2015. Since then she has used meditation, energy healing, and empowered storytelling to overcome anxiety, depression, and deep-seeded insecurity.

 

When her marriage ended in late 2015, she knew it could do one of two things: break her down or break her open. She chose to be cracked wide open and transformed. Since then, she has built two successful businesses, worked through some major heart (& life) healing, and cultivated a deep sense of self-worth, passion, and excitement in her day-to-day life.

 

Through her private coaching/energy healing sessions, group programs, and online courses, she has seen so many women return home to themselves & discover a new way of meeting the world and the curve balls that it throws their way. Her clients have transformed their marriages, overcome depression & anxiety, made peace with their bodies, and discovered an inner source of power & wisdom to create positive change in their lives.

005: Try this ritual for deep soul connection with your partner

005: Try this ritual for deep soul connection with your partner

Today’s episode is all about soul connection and how you can experience it with your partner using one of my favorite Tantric rituals, Masculine/Feminine worship.

 

Whether you feel that your partner is your soul mate, wish that he was, or hope that he is but you’re not sure…this 4 step ritual will have you feeling more connected than you have since the two of you first met.

 

In today’s episode I discuss:

 

  • Soul connection – what it is and the difference between soul connection and attraction
  • Why so few of us experience soul connection or if we do, why we loose that feeling over time
  • The importance of ritual – what it is, how we can create ritual space to return to soul connection and attraction in a way that feels safe and doesn’t take a ton of time
  • One of my favorite Tantric rituals to experience deep connection and honor for your partner
  • The 4 step process for masculine/feminine worship so you’ll know how to do it yourself.

 

Here’s the process in text form so you can have it to refer to and try out with your partner:

 

Step one: Set up your ritual space

 

You’re going to set the room up for a sacred sexual experience. Have some candles lit, soft music in the background, make sure you’re showered and fresh and have the bed made and pillows set up.

 

Step two: Ask each other the following questions:

 

When you’re ready to begin, sit across from each other in a cross-legged position and ask each other the following questions.

 

1) What does being fully in your masculine/feminine mean to you? Share what it looks like and feels like and share some of your ideals for manhood/womanhood for yourself.

 

2) When s/he comes to a natural pause, ask her/him – What supports you as a woman or man?

 

Step three: See her/him as the highest version of her/himself.

 

As a man/woman, feel yourself transfigure into the highest version of masculinity/femininity. Feel yourself as a god/goddess. See yourself already as this highest version of yourself while your female/male partner holds this vision for you simultaneously.

 

Step four: pussy/penis worship

 

Starting with the man/woman, have him/her lie down naked while giving partner kneels in between the receiving partner’s legs. Receiving partner, taking a deep breath and allow yourself to receive this worship.

 

As the female partner giving this worship, taking a moment to look at his penis, feeling it as the home of consciousness, power, strength, and integrity – having a sense of reverence and awe of his penis. And then anoint his penis with oil as you repeat 3 times “You are sacred, you are sacred, you are sacred.” Finally, female partner placing both of your hands over his penis and kneeling and allowing a sense of love and respect for your man and his body.

 

Then switching roles and as the male partner giving this worship, taking a moment to look at her vulva, seeing it as the home, the temple of power, beauty, energy, love and sacredness – having a sense of awe and reverence for this beautiful part of her. And then anoint her vulva with oil as you repeat 3 times, “You are sacred, you are sacred, you are sacred.” Finally, male partner placing both hands over her vulva and kneeling and allowing a sense of love and respect for your woman and her body.
