Episode 62 – Building A Better Relationship With Your Body

Click to listen to Episode 62 – Building A Better Relationship With Your Body

In this unedited podcast episode, we discuss Angela’s Body of Love Journey and her book Body of Love: 10 Steps to Love Yourself and Your Body – A Workbook. Link to the Workbook http://amzn.to/2o28JFB.

It’s been ten years since Angela wrote the Body of Love in 2012. Happy 10th Anniversary Congratulations, Angela!

Today, Angela will celebrate what she has learned and so much more about the Body ten years later, and Angela is excited to share pieces of her teachings from the Body of Love and how they can help you change how you relate to the Body. Angela also discusses how different dance experiences helped shape her mindset to love her body.

“The time you spend connecting to yourself and your body is how you develop and make a relationship with the reservoir of love inside of you that allows you to share that love with others.” ~ Angela Ambrosia

“The Body of Love is the part of you so in love with life that it is beyond the suffering you experience in love and loving others, or yourself or in being here in the world. The more you love yourself, the more you are able to be who you truly are.” ~ Angela Ambrosia

“The concept of “service” is stepping into loving and knowing who you are so that you no longer live a lie, and in doing so, you allow others to live their truth and step into their own loving being.” ~ Angela Ambrosia 

“But as you grow through life with higher principles of love, you develop ways to accept people, tolerate differences and enjoy their differences without expecting others to live according to your version of love and find creative ways for us to grow and live together.”

“The greatest service you can do for others is to allow them the gift of loving themselves. When people feel that you encourage this self-love in them as you allow it for yourself, they will flock to you and want to be your best friend.” ~Angela Ambrosia

Episode 61 – Twin Flame is it a Myth or Reality

Click to listen to Episode 61 – Twin Flame is it a Myth or Reality

In this episode, Angela and Patti will discuss whether Twin Flame is a myth or the real deal.

This topic came about when someone asked Patti about twin flame. Patti didn’t know much about twin flame, so Patti asked Angela if she knew about the twin flame concept. Angela does and suggested we do a podcast episode on this topic.

Does the twin flame concept give the appearance of Fear of Missing Out? “Everyone else has this ideal relationship but I don’t”.

Constant Craving – remember KD Lang? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXqPjx94YMg

Angela – Remember the Diary of Bridget Jones Movies? 

1. Why do you want to have this powerful intimate connection?

2. If you want a life-long powerful intimate connection – what are you excited about sharing with someone over a life-time?  A life-long connection requires a different way of thinking about love – like being there for when this person goes through sickness, grief and even death.

3. What do you want to experience in being a witness to someone else’s life and journey?

4. If this person that you think is your twin flame does not stay in your life – why do you still want them to be in your life? What is it that you deeply want from a physical relationship with a partner?

Angela – In that film – I’m not spoiling it – but Susan Sarandon’s character says that she sees her role as a partner to be a witness to her husband and him to do that for her. For Angela is the greatest gift you can have with anybody – to witness their life and share in that person’s journey. Couples I see deeply bonded without labeling themselves as twin flames have discovered complete freedom in their relationship because they no longer look for their partner to fulfill some concept of love. – Instead, they sincerely appreciate the gift of being able to witness someone’s life and be part of their journey. The movie Shall we Dance does a great job of sharing that.

What soul group do you think is Angela and Patti?

Thank you, Angela, for sharing your expertise, in-depth explanation and opinion of twin flame and soulmates with the listeners and me.

We would love to hear about your perception, belief and experience with twin flame relationships.

Episode 60 – Forgiving Family Members for Angry Hurtful Words

Click to listen to Episode 60 – Forgiving Family Members for Angry Hurtful Words

Angela and Patti discuss forgiving family members and hurtful words in this podcast episode.

Have you ever said something so hurtful and regretted it?

The same is true for family members who have said angry, hurtful words to you. Hurting people lash out at others. Words hurt profoundly, and a lot of times, and not forgotten. Speaking in anger can be dangerous for all relationships, even if it is accurate and how you are feeling at that moment in time. The damage has been created and really can’t take back.

Why do we say hurtful words? First, it’s helpful to understand why people become habituated to saying unkind things.

Understanding why people say hurtful things will help you see what the person is experiencing underneath the words.

Patti often says in our podcasts, “hurt people – hurt other people.”

Angela – I see that hurt people have no way to heal their hurt or resolve it – so they project it out – like spitting out the poison inside them – or when you spit out something that you don’t like in your mouth.

The thing is – it seems pretty stupid to spit out your hurt on someone else – if you want to stay friends with them.

So why would we do that?

Well, monkey sees – monkey do.

How do you forgive?

Forgiveness is the hardest thing for most people. Unforgiveness is a poison on your soul and spirit. Unfortunately, people with unforgiveness spill it out on others, and the cycle continues down the line.

Questions to journal or self reflect on:

Are apologies needed to be said before healing can happen? YES or NO

What if apologies never occur?

What if the family member doesn’t want to make amends?

How will you let go and forgive without an apology?

When unforgiveness takes over your thoughts and heart, recite the Hawaiian Forgiveness Prayer Ho’oponopono” at least three or more times. First, say the person’s name and then the prayer. Or you may not get a chance to apologize or get an apology; this prayer will assist in healing and forgive with a genuine desire to heal the relationship.

I’m sorry

Please forgive me

I love you

Thank you

We would love to hear about your family dynamics and how you conquered and let go of the hurt from angry words said, whether you were telling them or directed at you.

Thank you so much for listening; please share the podcast with others and give us a 5-star review so more people can find and listen to the podcast.

Episode 52 – Claiming Your Value at Work or Entrepreneur

Summary of podcast:

In this episode, we look at the changing expectations in the marketplace where people are moving to offer their services for sale versus working in a job with a fixed salary and how this forces you to claim your value versus having employers or your own perceptions determine what you are worth.

To listen to this episode click on the link.

Self-Reflection Questions for Determining a Raise:

Do I exceed expectations of my job duties, job description, and why?

Am I the go-to person who gets things done?

Do I take on additional tasks, projects, and responsibilities outside of my job description?

Do others come to me for my advice, knowledge, and leadership?

Am I increasing my learning and knowledge within my industry?

Do people at work describe me as vital within the company?

How Do You Claim Your Value as an Entrepreneur?

Is the world interested in what you share?

Does the world understand what you share?

Do you have something of value to others?

And if you do – do you know how to communicate that effectively to others?

Can people afford what you have to share?

Will people want to pay for what you have to offer?

There are so many other people offering what you have; why would they want what you’ve got to share?

Self-Doubt to Self-Assured Common stuff that goes through people minds:

How much do I share?

Did I share too much?

Do people want to hear about it?

Will it make a difference?

Am I too pushy?

What if no one buys my products or services?

What if people are making fun of me or judging me?

Here are some questions and Journal exercises about thinking about your value and how you condition your value.

If you want to claim your value, you need to see the conditions you put on it, so that you will understand why you are using your time and energy the way you are and so that IF you want to, can change your perception about your value you can:

1. See how to change your mindset or perception about your value

2. Change the way you describe your value to the world, so they understand your value or

3. See how to communicate your value to the world so that they understand it clearly.

It is ONLY the belief that what you offer is worth a certain price.

How do you claim your value in what you offer to the world, whether at work or in personal relationships?

Episode 47 – How To Be Honest About What’s Not Working in a Relationship!

In this podcast episode Angela and Patti explore how to be honest about what’s not working in a relationship.

“Being honest” does not mean being mean. Being honest does not mean you are right and the other person is wrong. It is sharing your feelings so things can change. Being honest means being clear about your feelings and contributing solutions to what you want to change or need based on your perception of the situation.

When you feel upset and discouraged inside towards others, pull out your journal and start writing exactly how you feel. Then, step away from the situation until you have calmed down. I know this may be hard at first, but it can change how you feel and save relationships whether it is a friendship, marriage and your reputation at work by taking these small steps.

Angela talks about Graham Gibbs created a great Reflective Practice with 6 steps that helps break down what your feelings are about a situation so that concrete actions can be implemented that help include the value of our feelings.Description of the experience
Feelings and thoughts about the experience
Evaluation of the experience, both good and bad
Analysis to make sense of the situation
Conclusion about what you learned and what you could have done differently
Action plan for how you would deal with similar situations in the future, or general changes you might find appropriate.

Hamlet is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare

Honesty with oneself and others is one of the biggest challenges in life.  Being Authentic is not about hurting, criticizing, manipulating, pushing your viewpoint, or offending others. It’s about being kind, compassionate, respectful about the other person while keeping it real.  Honesty delivered in the right way expresses wisdom, boundaries and releases expectations.

Think before you speak – Is it true, Is it helpful, Is it inspiring, Is it necessary, Is it kind (Author unknown)

Here are some reflection questions to think about and write in your journal.

* What is the difference between being honest and insensitive to others?

* How can honesty with yourself change your life and relationships at home and work?

Episode 37 – Is Your Relationship Lock-Down Proof? (Podcast)

In today’s podcast episode, we will be discussing how to fool-proof relationships so they can endure during lock-down.

With any relationship, you will have things that are going to irritate you about the other person. No one is perfect, and no relationship is either. You will have highs and lows during the partnership. For some, it is easier to walk away than to work it out. Anything worth having you have to work at it.

Now, let’s get real, there were many times Patti felt like running away, and that was pretty much my inner and outer struggles, not him. It’s okay to feel this way at times, and it’s alright to take a break to figure things out when needed. It takes two to have a healthy, thriving relationship. In relationships, you have two imperfect people with very different views on what a happy relationship should look like while trying to relate to each other, besides having a different upbringing, love languages, personalities, and values. Gary Chapman wrote a book on the 5 Love Languages.

It’s important to do things together as well. Have a date night at home – dress up, make a special dinner, etc. Sit outside with a glass of wine or beer, coffee or hot chocolate, whatever is your favorite beverage and watch the sunset, go for a walk, watch a TV show or movie together or go for a bike ride, take a drive in the car together to get outside and away from home. For more tips on surviving social isolation, we did a podcast on Episode 15 on this topic.  

How are you surviving the lock-down in your relationship?  

Are you looking for an activity to connect as a couple? Angela is offering an online Wednesday movement meditation class in the USA at 7:30 pm EST, which is the following day in Sydney, Australia, Thursday, where couples can explore healing touch with their partner to feel heart connection with your partner. It happens right in the comfort of your home over zoom and is excellent for those looking to do an activity that is not just watching Netflix and can break up your routine with something new and a shared activity to enjoy with each other. You can do it with a friend or child over 14 as well.  

Individuals can also join in the class and discover how to feel connected to your heart and build your awareness of what love is and how easy it is when you create a supportive environment. https://dancewithangelahealing.as.me/

Some things to consider as you think about your lockdown experience. 

❤️ How did you survive it, or how are you still surviving it?

❤️ What have you discovered about your relationship?

❤️ Did you blame yourself, your government, your partner, your children? 

We would love to hear your answers to these questions about your lockdown experience and some inspirational relationship stories of how being in lockdown together strengthens your relationship?

Patti and Angela are intending and wishing all the best for your relationships to build stronger, resilient connections that will prosper in these times.
