Summer Dating Tips Part 1

summer-wallpaper-hdSummer can be overwhelming and also fun, especially if you’re single.

There’s something about the sunshine that can heighten that desire to be close to someone special, to feel sexy and to play!

It’s the perfect time to get back in the swing of dating again, no matter how many times you’ve been hurt before.

So, for the next 3 weeks, I want to share 3 dating-specific tips that can you navigate the dating waters without wanting to run for cover. 

These are tips that I’ve implemented and tested out with my clients and in my own dating life that resulted in me recovering from intense heartbreak and getting back on the horse, Goddess-style!

Dating…. Goddess Style Tip #1: Spread the love!

In short, date multiple people at one time.

Pack your schedule with dates without attachment.

This one sounds so very simple but it can be hard if you just came out of a relationship and are generally a one-woman, one-man kind of Soul. 

When you go out with different people in a short amount of time, there are several important benefits:

  1. You avoid pouring all your emotional energy into one person that quite frankly, hasn’t yet earned your trust and heart yet! You just met them! 
  2. Even if you feel a strong connection on one date with a certain person, there’s always more to uncover about their intentions and non-negotiables before you get emotionally (and physically) invested. 
  3. You get to “try on” your energy with theirs! It’s like trying on a dress. It may be Gucci but no matter which way you put it on, it may never hug your hips the right way and that’s fine! Next! 

A true tale of 4 men

One woman I know had scheduled 4 dates with 4 different men in one week to test this theory out. 

She had a blast going out to dinner, coffees, ice cream and even mini golf.

Some she had a nice connection with. Others bored her to tears but she simply went to experience herself with someone new.

She was dating Goddess style.

The result?

Now she’s dating one of the four who got tired of competing for her time and attention and he treats her like a Goddess as he should!

And she even got a text from one of the other men saying, “If it doesn’t work out with this guy you’re committing to, please call me. You’re awesome!”

(Who wouldn’t love to receive that?!)

*Note: I get asked by women all the time, 

Q: “Isn’t that MEAN to date multiple people? I feel guilty for dating more than one man at a time.”

My blunt-big sister-meets wingwoman answer to them? 

1) Men do it all the time. It’s not mean. It just is. Stop assigning meaning to everything!

2) I said DATE, not have sex with multiple people at once. As in…simply go out and experience their energy with yours in a no-pressure setting. See if you like who you become when you’re with them and what they spark in you! It’s an experiment not an iron-clad contract. 

3) Wouldn’t you feel better knowing that if you didn’t vibe with one person, you knew you had a date with someone totally different who thinks you’re attractive the next day? 

There is power in numbers, Goddess.

my fav mercury retro* story (it changed my life)

Mercury Retrograde.

A time when computers crash, road rage can abound and miscommunications manifest out of nowhere.

I used to dread the inevitable slow down of this time and if you’re reading this, you’re probably super sensitive to energy and have been feeling it maybe a few days before it happened.

That email never got sent.

The address you wrote down was wrong by 1 number.

Your ex comes back and wants another shot and throw your hands up at the sky and think WTF is going on?

I thought I dealt with that crap already.

But I’ve now come to appreciate the snail pace and test on my patience level.

Whenever I get the urge to flip out, I try and remember this story I’m about to share with you that was very Mercury Retro-esque that literally changed the course my life.

It all started in my kitchen in Oakland when I was contemplating my path and what the heck to do.

Nothing felt certain and I had never felt so alone in my life.

My boyfriend and I had broken up, I didn’t know how I was going to pay rent that month and I had just come out of the ER with a mounting bill for scans that I didn’t even need.

I was raw.

So I did what any normal person would.

I decided to go on Facebook.

Only my browser kept freezing.

And I got the rainbow spinning wheel of death on my Mac.

I wanted to cry.

Just let me have my damn distraction!

Then finally a breakthrough came.

The wheel stopped and I saw the facebook logo at the top.


thank. you. dear Lord.

And then something weird happened.

It never went to Facebook.

It skipped Facebook.

And opened up a browser for a college in Arizona.


I tried to reload, but it wasn’t having it.

It was called Southwest Institute of Healing Arts.

The last thing I wanted to do was go back to school.

Was this a joke?

But my intuition started kicking in.

My tummy got all hot.

And I started getting Angel goosebumps up and down my body.

The message I kept getting?

“Call them.”

I didn’t want to call them.

But what the heck else was I going to do?

So the next thing I know I’m speaking with a woman who tells me that they have a program for coaching certification and yoga and all sorts of wonderful metaphysical classes.

She said that I was in the system as having an Americorp award for pretty much the amount of yearly tuition for not one but both programs. (I had done Teach for America years before and for some reason, this school accepted those service funds I had totally forgotten about because I was dead set against going to grad school.)

And that it expired in a year.

Was I interested in coming out for a visit to the desert?


To make a long story longer, in short I left California, my entire practice that I’d built up to go to school and build a new life for myself. I got my coaching certification and yoga teaching certification fully paid for and I had my first clients within the first weekend of starting my new life.

Nothing is an accident.

All from a frozen computer screen during the Retrograde.

So, pay attention to what your intuition is telling you right now.

You never know where it could lead you.

Or how life can surprise you!

you have to let go of good if you want great

Have you ever known that it was TIME to let go of something that was “just okay” so you could make space for something amazing?

I recently had a session with someone who was letting go of a man who she’d had an on and off again relationship with.

They had both been playing cat and mouse for over 3 years and when we went to do the karmic cord cutting (a powerful energy release I do with my private clients), tears rolled down her face as she felt his presence in the room. “My whole body is vibrating!” she said, looking at me with wide eyes.

She got to share with him all the things she’d been too proud to say when they were face to face. To start the letting go process…for real.

And the next day (full moon) she texted me to let me know that she just wanted to go to a park and just be with herself…and sift through all the emotions that came up instead of going to a party.

“I never do that!” she laughed.

She cried. She laughed. She raged. But she had freed herself. She was starting to accept that she had always held the keys to her freedom. It wasn’t with this guy. That’s real power.

But her take-away? She was done settling for just okay. She was ready for great.

And in order for great to arrive, we have to be willing to let go of the crumbs. To let go of just “good enough.”

It’s not gonna cut it anymore Goddess!

The real secret: shhhh

And to be open to GREAT, you have to learn to tolerate and accept the space. The void. The discomfort.

You have to be strong.

It’s so easy to try and fill that space that that person, job, or habit left, but you want exceptional right?

Mindblowing, OMG-this-is-my-life amazing, right?

Then you’re going to have to be able to sit with yourself in the discomfort for awhile without rushing to replace it.

Does it hurt or suck sometimes?


Is it easy?

Hell no!

But it’s what it takes.

A firm will to say “I will only accept the best. I’m done with crumbs.”

The Universe will test you.

You may think you’ve screwed up when that person comes back or you encounter a similar situation as before.

No no no sister.

It’s just the Universe testing your resolve to GREAT.

Be strong.

You’ve got this.
