You will wonder at times how she knew about you and a particular significant other because she seems to describe you and the relationship to a T. And, when you read the last page you will wish you had read it years and a number of relationships earlier.

I have read other books on this topic which spoke to me... This book, which I got in the Kindle version, pulled it all together for me--the biology, personal values, self identity, the human quest for belonging and intimacy. The book... brought to me great understanding. I wish I had ordered the paper version with the workbook. I ended up going back and ordering it.

What was Your Favorite Superbowl Commercial?

Like most of us today, you are either talking about the last 3 minutes of the Superbowl game or your favorite (or least favorite) commercial. Most of us had previously seen or heard some of the commercials that aired last night. And while I was paying my bills during the game, one commercial caught my eye. I had seen it before on a morning talk show but seeing it again gave me the same shivers up my spine.

My favorite Superbowl commercial was "Like A Girl" by Always.

Most of you have seen or heard the commercial. I've included the link below just in case you haven't or would like to see it again. It is one of the best messages I've heard on TV in a long time. I wonder how many of you can relate to the message. What happens during the transition from childhood to adolescence to adulthood that strips us of our confidence and belief in limitless possibilities for ourselves and our lives? What happens during this time that makes our need for approval, success and desirability stronger than believing in ourselves? What happens during this rite of passage that makes us lose part of ourselves rather than claim more?

I know we all want love and approval. I know it is scary to be vulnerable and feel rejected. I know our lives become more complex as we grow into adulthood and more wounded-ness has occurred.

I also know we must reclaim the power and confidence that comes with not knowing what we don't know. I want all of you to think back on your most confident age--when you played and laughed and sang without concern of what others' thought--when you wore what you liked, not what your peers liked--when you felt like you were great just they way you were, not what others deemed cool. Then reclaim that part of you. Celebrate your individuality, style, power, and pizzazz. Get back to the innocence of not knowing what you don't know.

To watch the commercial, please visit http://youtu.be/XjJQBjWYDTs or click Read in Browser to see the video on my website along with other articles on relationship building.

Here's to reclaiming the power of you!

Be well,
Julie

It’s That Time of Year for The Pathway to Love Video!

Every year about this time I remind everyone to watch The Pathway to Love video. This video presents the four phases of a developing relationship in an educational and entertaining way. You get to watch a couple's relationship move through the four phases while I describe the issues, tasks and gifts inherent in each phase.  It is a journey that will make you smile, laugh and nod as you relate to all the things that couples go through as they travel from the first time they meet to creating a committed relationship based on deep intimacy and true love.

This video means a lot to me. Not only does it serve as a wonderful way to understand and experience the four phases of The Pathway to Love, it was for me, a personal labor of love. Many wonderful friends and colleagues volunteered their time, talent, and resources in the making of this video. I was incredibly blessed to have so many with so much talent stand by my side while creating a story that teaches, touches and inspires others to create strong and intimate relationships in every area of their lives.

In particular, I take this time of year to acknowledge Terrence Wing, a real life angel, who passed away on December 1, 2011. Terrence was my role model of what it means to be a friend, mentor and professional. He was instrumental in the making of this video. He was the director, editor and videographer. He brought heart and integrity to everything he did and never expected anything in return. All he wanted was for me to be successful. He was a champion to so many and continues to be missed by all who knew him.

So if you've never experienced The Pathway to Love video or have not watched it recently, I encourage you to take 10 minutes and enjoy!

And when you do, send a smile off to Terrence!

Find Out The Secret to Change and Transformation

"We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses." C.G. Jung

This quote reflects and reaffirms the heart of phase three in The Pathway to Love. Acceptance is an absolute pre-requisite for intimacy, healing and transformation.

Acceptance is what creates a sacred space. A sacred space is what creates a possibility for something new, different, deeper, more meaningful. It is through our acceptance that we find our way in, out, and through.

So next time you find yourself in a power struggle or at war with yourself or someone else, stop and ask yourself "What do I need to accept?"

Next time you find yourself impatient, frustrated, or wishing things were different, stop and ask yourself "How can I accept things as they are in this very moment?"

And finally, next time you find yourself berating yourself, stop and ask yourself "How can I demonstrate compassion, understanding and acceptance for myself?"

The answers lie within the space of acceptance. Once we accept ourselves, others, and circumstances for who and what they are, we unlock the key to knowing exactly what to choose and do next and who we want to become.

For more information on the four phases of a developing relationship, please visit www.JulieOrlov.com/pathway-to-love. If you are interested in scheduling a coaching or psychotherapy appointment, please call 310-379-5855 or 1-888-99PATHS.

Be well,

Are you up for an experiment? I challenge you to live like Charles Schultz!

Charles Schultz was a lucky man. Read why.

 "My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning, and yet I’m happy. I can’t figure it out. What am I doing right?" – Charles Schultz

I think the reason why Charles Schultz lived his life as a happy man was because he purposely avoided over thinking--the meaning of life--his life. We spend a lot of time thinking--thinking about what happened in the past, what it meant, what is happening to us right now, how can we overcome it, what will happen in the future and how we can control it.

I know we all have a frontal cortex that is designed to do just that. But really, don't you think we over think things a bit too much? Maybe our frontal cortex is responsible for our unhappiness? Maybe we'd all be better off if we just didn't try to be so smart and so clever in figuring things out. Just possibly Charles got it right. No meaning, no purpose. Just life.

I say let's give it a try. For one week, stop living your life in pursuit of anything. Don't over think it. Just live.

Let me know how it goes!

Be well,

Julie

A Encore of Julie Orlov Q&A on Love and Relationships: Why was my ex able to move on so quickly?

Watch this weeks “Ask an Expert” video as Julie Orlov answers your questions on love and relationships. Today's question is "Why was my ex able to move on so quickly?" Did our 15 year marriage mean anything?"

Going through a divorce is hard. When an ex-spouse remarries, it is common for the other party to have some feelings—even if they were the one that wanted the divorce in the first place. A lot of feelings come up, including jealousy, resentment, hurt, and a final layer of loss. If an ex gets remarried immediately after the divorce papers are signed, it can elicit other questions as well.

Today’s question addresses these issues. Watch and learn the different ways people mourn and let go during the process of divorce and what it does and does not mean if your ex remarries quickly.
