We get asked this question all the time…”Should I wait to lose weight before I start to date?” Women can be very self-critical about their bodies and feel their worth tied to their body size. 37: Lose Weight Before You Date? Facing Your Body Shadow In Episode 37, Debi and Dr. Rob discuss the psychological impact of weight gain and dieting and how they relate to relationships and intimacy. We discuss how people feel they will be more confident after they lose weight or get to a certain size but then realize that they still have the same mindset minus a few pounds. We talk about the body being a part of the Persona in dating that dictates your attractiveness to potential mates. Just like we try to please to get someone to like us, are you trying to lose weight to get approval from others? After working with hundreds of women on weight loss as a hypnotherapist, Debi shares how they use their weight as a defense against love. They use extra pounds to hide and avoid attention. They sabotage their diets and workout routines because they really don’t want to be in a relationship on a deep level. Once you identify the psychological core of why you are rejecting love, the weight will melt away and you will have a better relationship with food. This process is about facing your Body Shadow™ so you can free your mind from the past and create the body you love. Debi shares her personal story of her own relationship with her body and food and how she transformed it. Be inspired to change your mind and then your body will follow. Join us for our virtual retreat, Creating The Body Beautiful – Spiritual Psychology of Weight Loss without Dieting. A 6-part program to help you change your relationship with food and your body so you can be happier and healthier and ultimately in a great relationship with your ideal partner.

In this episode, we tackle the topic of health and body image when it comes to self-love and relationships. Can changing your body image lead to attracting the love of your life? 35: Can Loving Your Body Help You Find True Love? Learn how we rate ourselves by the numbers – age, weight, dress/jean size, and lab results. If we meet a certain metric, we will love ourselves more. Find out why dieting is like following dating tips when it comes to a healthy body image. What is true beauty? Understand what type of physical traits in men/women turn you off in dating and what they say about you. We discuss how the mindset and the source of health and body image is internal, not driven by external results. Your body is reflecting your “default mode” of conditioning through family, culture, peers, your mate and your environment. You can transcend the default and create a body that you love without ego-attachment. We also mentioned our new Mindbody Psychology Training Retreat in August, 2018 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Does love happen by accident or is it written in the stars? Mystics, poets, philosophers, scientists and therapists have been examining this question since the beginning of time. Why do we fall in love with certain people and can we direct our mind to fall in love with a specific person? 34: Can You Choose The Person You Love? In this episode, we examine the idea of romantic chemistry and how it works. What part of you chooses to feel a certain way about another? Many people think it is a soul-mate thing, but what they are really experiencing is their early life patterns projected upon another individual. Understand how: * Unavailable people create a strong emotional draw for you * The people who look good on paper do not generate any romantic feelings * Your mind projects old patterns onto others and gets you caught up in a cycle of heartache.

Have you felt that the same broken record in your dating life? If you ever wondered why you keep repeating the same patterns in relationships and experiencing the same heartbreaks with every person, we share solutions on how to break free and change your attraction to a person who is ready and willing for love. EPISODE 33: Same Heartache, Different Person? How to Be Free of Old Love Patterns We explain the animus (Inner Adam) and anima (Inner Eve) archetypes and how you relate to the opposite sex unconsciously. They represent the divine urge to connect and natural drive for love and relationships. This perfect image is clouded by your personal history and experience with your parents, men or women in your life. You learned how to relate to these humans and it impacts how you relate in your adult relationships. Identify the pattern with men or women and that shows you how your Inner Adam is currently set up. You can change this archetype in your unconscious through visualizations and dreams and then change your relationships with men or women in a dramatic way.

Some people live their lives in quiet desperation, while others take the road less traveled and ask the big questions in life. In this episode we get into a deep philosophical conversation about the meaning of life, purpose and the three big questions everyone needs to answer: * What do I do about Love? * What do I do about Money? * What do I do about God? EPISODE 31: ANSWERING THE 3 BIG QUESTIONS IN LIFE When you do personal development work, it may feel as though everyone else has it all figured out. They have the relationship you want, the money or success you want, the dream career, etc. You may even think that everyone is more enlightened than you. We discuss how no one gets out of life without answering these questions and how you can begin to answer them for yourself. Do you have the love you want? Are you happy with your career? Do you know your life’s purpose? What do you believe about your relationship to God or the universe? We probably awaken more questions than answers but the discussion is definitely one that brings everything into focus and makes you think. Why take the path to answer these in a deep way? Is the journey to a greater life filled with more problems? We believe that finding these answers in ourselves is the greatest journey. Quote by Rilke: If we only arrange our life in accordance with the principle which tells us that we must always trust in the difficult, then what now appears to us as the most alien will become our most intimate and trusted experience. How could we forget those ancient myths that stand at the beginning of all races, the myths about dragons that at the last moment are transformed into princesses? Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. – Rainer Marie Rilke

In this episode, we discuss getting over past relationships and how to have closure to move on to real love. EPISODE 30: Getting Over Your Ex and Moving On To Real Love We review the O.C.D. of looking at the past and how your ex is hooked into your emotions.

Learn about love unrequited in pop culture movies such as “There’s Something About Mary” or “Sideways” and how the main characters found closure and finally resolution to move on.

We are all emotional beings. Our feelings fluctuate through the day, every day like a carousel. Sometimes the feelings are good, sometimes numb and then there are those times when the emotions seem to burst through our logic and take us down a path to crazy town. These emotional triggers are not often played out externally, but more like an internal combustion leading to obsessive thinking, more stress and the desire to protect, defend or get even with the person who made the offense. EPISODE 29: UNDERSTANDING EMOTIONAL TRIGGERS IN RELATIONSHIPS In this episode, we discuss eight (8) common ego assumptions that are playing a role in the emotional trigger and allowing it to fester in your mind and body. They are: * Taking things personally – It is my fault or they meant to hurt me * Polarized Thinking – Everything is black or white – no compromise * Mind Reading – Assuming what others are thinking about you or assuming they should know what you are thinking * Labeling a Person (or Group) based on one action – “He did this to me or to someone else, so he’s a terrible person” * Overgeneralization – “All Men/Women are Non-Commital” * Catastrophizing – “I will always be single” or “It will always be like this” * Minimizing – “It isn’t so bad” – tolerating bad behavior or settling for less * Should Statements – “I should date” or “I should be nicer” or “I should not waste money” We give you a quick exercise to work with these assumptions to free your mind from their trappings and get clear on what is really true. Your ego will use one or a combination of these assumptions when you are triggered. Learn your go-to story and be empowered to drop the story and see the world through new eyes.

Have you felt exhausted from self-help and trying to fix yourself because you are single? In this episode, we talk about the stigma of being single and how attitudes have shifted around marriage. We discuss the latest research on ideas around marriage and how it isn’t the key part of adulthood that it used to be. EPISODE 27: SINGLE DOESN’T MEAN YOU ARE BROKEN In 1858, physician William Farr wrote “Marriage is a healthy estate. The single individual is more likely to be wrecked on his voyage than the lives joined in matrimony.” Times have changed and there are actually more single people in the U.S. right now than married people. We explain how to change your own attitude around being single that is still embedded in your unconscious and influencing your life. Based on Carl Jung’s idea of individuation, there is a way to break free of the old patterns and have the love and relationship that you consciously want if you discover your true self.
