Who's Your Valentine?


As we approach February 14th it is time to think about relationships and their meaning.

Ponder the following:

Who's Your Valentine?


1. Most people spend more time shopping for a new vehicle than finding a partner. Slow down and consider what you need and can offer before you commit.

2. Dating is way of determining whether you are compatible but does not guarantee long-term happiness, especially if you aren't being honest with yourself about what you need.

3. Going from dating to common-law in a short period of time is risky. Determine to date for a year without living together so that you can see how the other person deals with holidays, seasons and problems.

4. The "honeymoon" stage doesn't last long. What used to be "cute" can become "annoying", especially when the bills come in, the career is stressful and illness shows up.

5. Maturity and good mental health practices offer more stability for a partnership than physical attractiveness. Do good trumps look good!

6. People don't divorce because of conflict. They divorce because they don't know how to resolve the conflict. Learn how to deal with issues in a healthy manner.

7. Over fifty percent of married couples divorce. (Stats do not include those couples who are separated). Be thankful if you are happy and look forward to spending time with your partner.

8. Some couples are unhappy but stay together for a variety of reasons (children, finances, religion, shame). If you are both willing to seek professional help, learn some new skills and forgive, you can improve your situation.

9. Statistics for second marriages that end are higher than for first marriages. You can't just blame your first spouse for everything! Work on your weaknesses or you will marry and be the wrong person your second time around.

10. Better to be 80% happy on your own than 100% miserable with a partner.

This Valentine's Day instead of just focusing on romance, try thinking about and showing love to those around you. A paper heart for a child. Cookies for a shut-in. A smile for a stranger. Extra help for a co-worker. Donations for a charity. Encouragement for a neighbour.

And, if you have made a romantic commitment to someone, try using honest and well thought-out words to communicate how thankful you are to have him/her in your life! Because they are more powerful and longer lasting than cut flowers they will be treasured for years to come.

Love you to at Valentine's Day!

Is He Right for Me? Ask the Love Psychic: The 5 P's of Love That Last a Lifetime


I am sure you have heard several stories about women who fall for a guy and after a few months into the relationship realize that he wasn't the right one and that's the time when everything becomes just too hard to handle.

So I am guessing that you are reading this article because you are stuck in a mental cycle of confusion and aren't sure whether the man you are with is even right for you or not.

Is He Right for Me? Ask the Love Psychic: The 5 P's of Love That Last a Lifetime


Is he right for me? How do I know? Am I wasting my time? Will he love me forever, or is he waiting for someone better to come along? What are the signs that he cares about me, as much as I care about him? How can I gauge his commitment level? Where do I fall on the totem pole of what's MOST important to him?

Any of these questions sound familiar? If you are anything like the tens of thousands of women who have enjoyed our articles on love, romance, and spiritual soul mates... the truth is, we are ALL a little bit insecure about our relationships. And as intuitive empaths, we get more questions about commitment than just about anything else, especially for relationships that have not yet hit that "A-ha" threshold. (you know... where you finally realize that you are meant to be together, forever)

And while there are intuitive ways to tell if someone is right for you that are a bit hard to describe in an article, what I like to tell people is that you can use your OWN inner intuitive guidance to test your existing relationship. (no psychic reading required!)

How so?

I like to refer to these as the 5P's of a happy, healthy and spiritually successful foundation. They don't always reveal whether someone is your trust soulmate or twin flame, but they can reveal whether you should continue invest your precious time with another person, or move on to someone else.

Here are the 5 P's.

Priority: How much does he (or she) prioritize YOU? Are you #1? Or are you a secondary option in his pantheon of plans?

Passion: Is it there? Do YOU feel it? How about your partner? Chemistry is an undeniable factor that far too many people give up at their own peril.

Patience: Do you feel like you are walking on eggshells? Does he give you the time and space you need to express your feelings? Patience is the knowledge that time is not a factor for either of you... as your bond is bigger than your bodies, and in my view, larger than a single lifetime as well!

Purpose: Do you share the same sense of life purpose? This is so key when it comes to spiritual soul mates and twin flames. If you have totally different "goals", the chances are, at some point your paths will be pulled part in pursuit of what is most important to each of you. When you SHARE a sense of purpose, that feeling of being part of a true team who are accomplishing great things together can move mountains, and heaven and earth together.

Protection: Lastly, do you feel safe with him? Does being in his arms, or merely in the same room feel like a natural space where everything is going to be OK? There is something so incredibly special about feeling like you are with the one you are meant to be with, and that nothing can pierce the inner sanctum of spiritual safety that you co-create together!

Of course there are all sorts of other ways to intuit whether the man you love is your spiritual soulmate... or just a stepping stone on the path to authentic love. But the tips above are practical, and are a good way of getting your own questions answered using your own intuition! (no psychic reading required!)
