  Better use for a Great Wall of China cannon 

It has been such a whirlwind lately that I've just about lost my voice, so forgive me for not posting sooner. After seeing Tears for Fears in Manila & visiting the Great Wall of China en route to the States, we did a 3 week tour of the South, seeing family & friends in Georgia, S. & N. Carolina, I did my FIRST Teacher Training EVER in San Diego & now, we're home in LA for the summer. Boy, do I need a breather!

I hope to see many of you in my LIVE workshops this summer in LA, including the upcoming Releasing Intensive on Saturday, June 26th.

People often ask me about personal ads as though getting it right is the Holy Grail. Read on to find out my response.

I Get Tired Just Reading Your Personal Ad

I read the funniest blog the other day, complaining about the high octane personal ads that sound exhausting. The writer just wanted to go lie down.

This brings to mind a false assumption many believe about dating. Compatibility is a fake idea. Seriously! Studies show over & over that what people say they want and what they actually want are two different things. There is more of a chemistry/soul recognition happening than someone who looks good on paper in each instance.

So, take the pressure off of getting your personal ad perfect or ticking off a list of qualities with each prospective partner. Better to just be in a good mood while writing your ad and abandon loading it up with all your activities.

And as far as dating goes, look for an initial connection. It doesn’t have to be complete excitement at first, because for some chemistry opens up gradually. But you have to have some attraction, which is an indicator there may be something there.

Free Teleseminar

On Monday, June 14th, I'm doing a rare, free teleseminar called LETTING GO: A Primer on Release. It's a great way to start out the summer -- getting released so you can dive fully into summer fun. To find out more & sign up (hundreds signed up within the first two hours!), follow this link:

Talk to you soon, and I hope to see you while I'm in the U.S. this summer!

lots of love,

PS: The Releasing Intensive is projected to sell out next week due to limited attendance. If you have major release issues or find yourself in a lot of pain, go ahead & reserve your spot NOW here:
