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:

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!

Let Go and Let In!

Change and transitions are not only a necessary part of life, they are a blessing. They allow you to meet new people and do new things, they enable you to grow and transform, and they create the space for more joy, happiness and love to come into your life. Unfortunately, we can stand in our own way. The idea of change is scary—we are not always comfortable with the unknown. So we end up holding on to what we do know, what is familiar and comfortable, often at the expense of our own wonderful future that is waiting to emerge. In the end, the very things we do to protect ourselves from potential “harm” are the very things that imprison us from potential growth and well-being.

It is so important to not only embrace change and transitions but to invite and welcome them to us. So whether you are someone who tries to block change or make change happen, there is a middle ground. It’s the place from which you let go and let in. Sometimes easier said than done, I know.  So in order to help you with this endeavor, I am offering five steps to help facilitate the art of letting go and letting in.

My Holiday Wish for You…

Now that the holidays are fast approaching and the stress of navigating shopping malls and grocery stores is coming to a close, I’d like to offer you my holiday wish for you. While we may get temporarily distracted by travel plans, holiday sales and decorating madness, tomorrow is the day when everything settles down and what’s really important comes into focus. It isn’t what gifts you will give or receive or what food will be served or even what historical-religious event you are celebrating (or not). You know what is truly important. I don’t have to say it. So here’s my holiday wish for you. Please accept this gift as a loving reminder of what we all truly want for Christmas this year. I wish you…

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.
