The fact that power differentials exist in relationships is not in question; how couples learn to navigate them is.

So how do individuals and couples learn to balance power in their relationship? The answer is different for each relationship, but all healthy relationships are built on empowered partners. Our guest, Debra Kaplan helps you understand how to successfully harness authentic power, identifying exploitation and how to engage healthy boundaries, learn the underlying attachment styles in relationships that contribute to over-valuation and under-valuation of self and creating healthy sexual and financial boundaries in relationship.

Kindness strengthens relationships, develops community, deepens unity and “moral elevation” ... affectionately known as the lexicon contagious. It is the cornerstone of our individual and collective mental health.

Creating An Abundance Mindset
People use affirmations for a variety of purposes. Generally speaking, affirmations are used to reprogram/shift the paradigm of the subconscious mind, to encourage us to believe certain things about ourselves or about the world and our place within it. They are also used to help us envision and create the reality we want—often in terms of making (or attracting) wealth, love, beauty, and happiness. There is value in affirmations of this nature, because our subconscious mind plays a major role in the actualization of our lives and the manifestation of our desires. What we believe about ourselves at a subconscious level can have a significant influence and impact on the outcome of events. Today our guest is going to help us understand the power of affirmations and why we need to speak them over our life everyday.... she is a nationally acclaimed best-selling author, transformational speaker, and success coach Cheryl Polote-Williamson.

The Science of Addictive Love
A wise sage named Ke$ha once infamously crooned that love itself can be a drug, capable of igniting addiction and a “sick obsession.” Scientists believe the same. In a recent review of studies on the neurochemical elements of love and addiction, University of Oxford researchers concluded that love can be diagnosed as an actual addiction. And one day, they wrote, it will be treated with science, just like every other substance humans crave when they get addicted like sugar, drugs or alcohol. Like the lyrics from one of Rihanna’s popular songs “and I run for miles just to get a taste…must be love on the brain” So sit back, relax and open up your heart, soul and brain — as my guest today will help you unpack what exactly is the true essence of the meaning of love.
