Dear Saint-Germain, I have a small company with my boyfriend. But business has been slow and we have to renegotiate our bank loan soon. Our relationship and business are so entangled that sometimes we're more like cellmates, than Soul mates. I thought we might separate because of this, but we've decided to marry instead. How can we have a happy marriage and a successful business, too?
As a psychiatrist, I’ve seen how intense sexual attraction is notorious for obliterating common sense and intuition in the most sensible people. Why? Lust is an altered state of consciousness programmed by the primal urge to procreate. Studies suggest that the brain in this phase is much like a brain on drugs.
Last night, while having a small dinner party, I listened in on a conversation between my dear friends, Nancy and Max, as they discussed the joys of living alone. Max has lived by herself for over twenty years and when Nancy asked how it felt to be alone for so long, Max replied, “I’m not alone, I’m in a relationship with myself.”
As a psychiatrist, I've seen how intense sexual attraction is notorious for obliterating common sense and intuition in the most sensible people. Why? Lust is an altered state of consciousness programmed by the primal urge to procreate. The brain in this phase may be much like a brain on drugs. MRI scans illustrate that the area that "lights up" (becomes active) when an addict gets a fix of cocaine is the same area that "lights up" when a person is experiencing the intense lust of physical attraction.
When we think of side effects the first thing that springs to mind are the side effects of drugs. But who’d have thought that kindness could have side effects too? Well, it does! And positive ones at that.
Every day there are plenty of good reasons to be frustrated: another long line, telemarketers, a goal that isn't materializing "fast enough," people who don't do what they're supposed to, rejection, disappointment. How does one deal with it all? You can drive yourself crazy, behave irritably, feel victimized or try to force an outcome -- all self-defeating reactions that alienate others and bring out the worst in others. Alternatively, you can learn to transform your frustration with patience.

Romance makes you come alive. It brings joy to the soul, happiness to the heart, and places rose-colored glasses firmly in front of your eyes. With the arrival of romance, you feel that you are walking on air and that your whole world is filled with happiness. Because everything feels so wonderful, even simple pleasures can feel like ecstatic delights.
The connections that exist between each of you and the people you connect with are based on shared soul contracts, karma and mutual lessons. Every interaction, no matter how long or short, contains a soul intention for healing and learning. There are no accidental or chance meetings or connections, each one represents a karmic cycle and an opening into your healing purpose. As you meet each person or encounter every relationship, connect with your guidance to know the purpose of this connection because each one serves you on your path.
We’ve entered a new energy where everything may look the same, but, in actuality nothing is as it appears. If we even so much as attempt to do things in the old way and expect the same old results we are mistaken, therefore, our relationships are shifting. Those that were not based on a high integrity of consciousness, mutual love, respect, and kindness either fell or are in the process of falling by the wayside or else both parties in the relationship must take a vibrational leap to the next level in order for it to endure.
Beloved ones, as you allow your hearts to fully flower in my presence, in the sunlight of My Love, you will find yourselves remembering what it means to be the heart of God and what it means to truly give – to be present and fully alive, vibrant and free, and exquisitely sensitive to every nuance of the expression of beauty and the pure awareness of the limitless heart in giving.
Scientists from Stanford University, publishing in the journal, ‘Emotion’ , showed that meditation that focused on loving kindness increased people’s feelings of social connectedness. The Tibetan Buddhist ‘Loving-Kindness’ meditation invites practitioners to cultivate a sense of loving kindness, wellness, peace, happiness, and compassion for ourselves, our loved ones, neutral people, and even aggressors in our lives.
The US National Longitudinal Mortality Study (NLMS) involving 281,460 men and women over 45 years of age it found that marriage was associated with a much lower risk of mortality than being single. Similarly, the British Regional Heart Study of 1995, that involved 7,735 men aged 40-59, found that being single was associated with a higher risk of mortality. However, it is not marriage itself that offers the health benefits. It is the quality of relationship within the marriage that counts. A happy marriage translates to a happy heart.
Our relationship with life is based on feeling and emotions, as we enjoy and find peace within situations that make us 'feel' good and quickly try to change those that make us feel bad. We think we have successfully created what we want when we 'feel good' about it but this is a short term view as we try to replicate the feeling over and over again.
