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.

Let Go and Let In

Last week I wrote about how change can come knocking at your door at any time without any notice. This week, I'd like to talk about intentionally finding ways to let new things into your life—a  new job, a new love, a new friend, a new pair of shoes. Both big and small things count. Allowing and inviting new things, people, and experiences into your life breathes new life into you. It's not only healthy to do so but it's what makes life interesting and vibrant.

This goes for your relationships as well. Relationships stay healthy and active when you let in new ideas, challenges, fun, adventure, intimate moments and ways of being.  So what does it take to invite something new into your life?  Well, it takes letting go of something old and creating the space.

Sounds simple... Or is it?

Letting go of the old is not easy. And for some, it is downright painful. But if you do, you will experience a new kind of liberation—a freedom and lightness that comes with detaching from things that may be weighing you down.

To help you in this endeavor, I challenge you to let go of one or more of the following this week:

In Memory of My Mom

January turned out to be quite a challenging month. My Mom passed away rather suddenly on January 7th, one day shy of her 81st birthday. 

It's hard to be separated from the people you love. There is a longing to feel connected, to feel their warmth and love around you. If the separation is temporary, then you hold on to the time when you know you will be reunited. If the separation is permanent, as in the case with my Mother, you look for ways to find the reassurance and security that you had taken for granted such a short time ago. There's something about losing a Mother, especially one that was nurturing and loving—the one person you could always count on being there for you—who would have an open door, a warm bed and a refrigerator filled with food if you were ever in need. When you lose your Mother, you realize you are truly on your own. For as supportive as your friends and other family members may be, there is nothing that compares with the unconditional love of a Mom. I was one of the lucky ones. My Mother complained little, gave generously, forgave easily and appreciated graciously. She wasn't perfect, but in the scheme of things, I know I was lucky. And I will miss her. 

So I wanted to dedicate this week's article to my Mom. I love you Mom and will miss you dearly. Rest  in Peace.

Taking Time To Reflect on Past, Present and Future

As we get closer to the end of the year, this is the time we naturally reflect back on what occurred during the past year and what we want in the year to come. I personally love this ritual and think it is so important that you engage in this as well. Whether you use your birthday, a major life event, your favorite time of year, or the more traditional New Year's celebration, doesn't matter to me--just as long as you take some time every year to reflect on what has been, what is, and what you'd like to create here on out.

To help you with this process, I've provided some guiding questions and sample responses. I've also given you two guiding activities to anchor the experience.

First, ask yourself the following:

Give the Gift of LOVE this Holiday to You and Yours

Discover how to have a more loving and secure relationship and start today.

How long have you been feeling frustrated with your relationship?

You’ve been feeling a distance between you and your partner not knowing how to handle when the person you love suddenly starts behaving like a stranger. You find yourself disliking the person you used to adore. You ask yourself "When did their feelings for me change? When did I start to feel so much resentment?"

You may have already made some attempts to smooth things over and get back to what feels “normal.” You’ve accommodated your partner’s desires. You’ve given your partner more space, or the opposite—you’ve been paying more attention to him. When all else fails, you seek advice from friends, therapists, or the Internet.

And despite what you’ve tried, things aren’t improving much.

You agonize:

  • If only he would see things from my perspective…
  • If only she could remember how good things used to be, and fall in love with me again…
  • If only he would listen, and really understand where I’m coming from…
  • If only she would stop withholding real honesty and affection, things could be so much better… 

There Is A Specific Reason Why You’re Still Struggling

The reason why you’re struggling isn’t because your partner is stubborn or lacks the right motivation (or love) to make things right again.

From my many years of professional experience, I’ve discovered the real reason why most conflict occurs is...

neither partner really knows each other as well as they think they do! 

It’s not about getting your partner to “do” anything or “be” a certain way. Without a deep and profound understanding of both your partner’s internal motivations and your own, all you’ll be doing is addressing the symptoms. The fight over one thing will become a fight over something else tomorrow. The contempt won’t really disappear. It’ll just get buried until the next time something triggers you or your partner. The only way to address the core of what’s really wrong is through discovering who both of you really are and what it is that each of you needs from your relationship.

I can walk you step-by-step through this process, in the privacy and comfort of your own home! 

Here’s how it works:

The Pathway to Love book will teach you about all the challenges and opportunities in the four phases of a developing relationship, helping you identify which phase you’re in right now, and illustrating how couples evolve their relationships to greater levels of intimacy. 

The Pathway to Love Workbook will take you, step by step, through a series of questions and reflections that you can do on your own or with your loved one that will move you from your “stuck” state of conflict to resolution and understanding. You’ll have an opportunity to deeply explore your true fears and desires and to learn things about your partner you’ve never known before. You’ll feel your love and trust build with every exercise and question.

The Pathway to Love Audio Guide is a candid recording of real sessions with real clients as they work with me to move through their specific struggles. You’ll hear me advise a woman who is distraught over a boyfriend who stops returning calls, help a wife and mother decide whether to stay married after her husband had an affair, and offer guidance to a couple who can’t seem to agree on how much closeness and affection is enough. By listening to these real sessions, you’ll see The Pathway to Love program “in action” and be able to apply the core lessons to your own situation.

The Pathway to Love program will also enable you to:

  • Go from struggle, fighting and disappointment to feeling deeper love, deeper trust, and more security in your relationship
  • Explore the truth about yourself and your partner so you can fully accept yourself and your partner and stop feeling “triggered”
  • Redefine, reignite, and breathe new life into your relationship, no matter how long you’ve been together or how much distance you’re feeling now
  • Create the right conditions from which you and your partner can heal, grow, and transform

I’ve Built My Career on Helping Couples…     

My name is Julie Orlov, and I’ve been a psychotherapist, executive coach, trainer, and consultant for more than 24 years. I’ve helped thousands of individuals and couples overcome all types of crises, from personal, to relational and professional.

What I know from my many years of experience is that relationships are complex. There are a multitude of factors playing out in each and every moment, including biological differences, childhood experiences, interpersonal dynamics, and past trauma. I base my work from the context of the four phases of a developing relationship because it provides a framework from which to observe ourselves and others more objectively. This framework creates awareness, awareness creates openings, and openings create possibilities—to appreciate, support, and understand one another more profoundly, so that real love can flourish.

 

If you...

  • want to feel secure and loved in your relationship,
  • Have understanding and acceptance from your partner,
  • End the fighting and struggle so you can experience peace of mind,
  • And enjoy having your partner listen to and care about your needs,
  • So you can stop feeling so alone in your relationship…

Then The Pathway to Love will help you on the journey to transforming your relationship from one of struggle and pain to one of true intimacy and profound love.

Let me show you how to work through what you’re experiencing and get more love, more affection, and more understanding from your relationship. The key to your well-being and happiness lies in how well you are able to navigate the challenges and opportunities in love. Let me show you my unique, step-by-step method for transforming conflict into greater intimacy.

As a bonus, I’ll also mail you a regular hardcopy of both the book and workbook.  I’ll even include a download of my interview on Carol Allen’s Interview with Enlightening Experts as well as my live presentation on The Pathway to Love recorded during my talk at The Center for Spiritual Living.

—Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Spiritual Liberation~Fulfilling Your Soul’s Potential

“The Pathway to Love, for those who did not experience love as a child and fear relationships, is a journey of self-discovery.  You will acquire a whole new appreciation for who you are and what you can bring to your relationship with yourself and others. Orlov demonstrates not only how we affect and create our relationship with ourselves and others but how they can affect us in return on the creative journey of self-discovery and self-love.”

— Bernie Siegel, M.D., author of 365 Prescriptions For The Soul and 101 Exercises For The Soul

“A mercifully easy read, when love certainly isn’t, the book describes the ‘Four Phases of Love.’  Assessing at which level of development sample relationships are floundering, Dr. Orlov shows us the keys to the next door to intimacy with the encouragement that self-discovery will be the ultimate prize.”

—Melanie Chartoff, Actress, Writer

“A little book with a gigantic message... The Pathway to Love is an outstanding guide to building strong and intimate relationships in your life. I give this book a hearty cheer and found it not only informative but very enjoyable.”

—Rhonda Kendle, Spokane, WA

“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.”

—Irene Conlan, Ph.D.

Julie is a great communicator and facilitator. I am still amazed at how her program, The Pathway to Love, is impacting my life on a daily basis. Her approach to understanding and improving relationships is easy to implement and I noticed results from the very first time I used some of the tools – and I’m just beginning the process. Thank you, from one Julie to another – I am now confident that I can have a better relationship with my husband, and I am grateful!

  –Julie Jennings, Partner, Shirlaws

Another year has passed...

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!
