We’re growing and bringing you our best yet all summer long

This summer I will be re-sharing the top episodes of the Ignite Intimacy podcast with you, starting with your #1 favorite, Episode 68 :: Frog Farmers, Belly Fat, Emasculation + Misinterpretations with Alison Armstrong.

For many years I blamed men for not showing up the way I want or need them to, for being afraid of me, for saying one thing and doing another. What I didn’t take into consideration was my behavior, my patterns and my choice.

When my twin sister recommended I read Alison Armstrong’s ‘The Queens Code’ it opened up a whole new world for me. I started to become present to the lack of self responsibility I had in my romantic relationships and how I was coming into relationships fully loaded with a lot of baggage from the past.

And now, as I continue on my journey to discovering love, I’m getting crystal clear about how I’m the source of my reality and experience. And, it’s up to me to listen to what the other person is sharing, to pay attention to the timing and my intuition and to love and let go when I know to do so.

Tune in for a replay of this dynamic conversation about love, relationships, dating and life with Alison Armstrong and I!
