Whether you’re married, in a relationship, or not…this message is for all souls. If you love, and/or desire love, doing these 3 things are vital for all relationships.

The relationship you have with your soul is lifelong. Until death do you part…and beyond.

It matters more than the relationship you have with others. It also has a huge affect on all of your other relationships.

So how do you redefine dating?

It starts with how you date yourself. Heart and soul.

Connecting your heart and soul. And YOU connecting with your heart and soul. Your head and your heart.

It’s connecting with who you really are.

As you know, I’ve written a best-selling book, Date Yourself Well: The 12 Best-Selling Engagements of Becoming The Great Lover of Your Life.

What does this mean?

How do you DATE YOUR SOUL?

As we’ve discussed in the past two episodes, the soul is your mind, will, and emotions.

Dating your soul starts with:

1. Making a conscious decision.

It’s YOU choosing to date yourself.

In order to love you, you must know you. In order to know you, you must spend time with you.

If you desire to really know and love you, you must choose to spend time…and date YOU.

Yes, ask yourself OUT.

What would that look like for you?

I made a choice with my mind, and was led by my heart to SHOW UP for myself.

Showing up for YOU is the first step.


2. SPEAKING UP. Going all in.

You learn what’s IN you, and you bring “her” to the surface and allow her (YOU) to speak.

You PURSUE her.

3. Going passionately into your feelings.

Allow your emotions to be felt.

Allow your feelings to have their place, and voice.

Pay attention.

Give yourself the opportunity to feel you.

To truly feel yourself from the inside, out.

You STAND UP. For you and what you believe…

You get to know YOU, your heart and soul.

If you can date your soul well, you can date yourself well.

You can love yourself well.

You’ll be able to love your life, life’s work, and those in your life well.

I promise you. It’ll change everything for you.
