For many of us, a loving and intimate relationship is one of our fondest desires or cherished experiences. And yet, for many, such a relationship remains elusive.
Why is This?
In our experience, all relationships are a reflection of our relationship with ourselves. If we believe, consciously or unconsciously, that we are unlovable, not enough, or damaged, we will run away from love and emotional intimacy. And, this resistance is happening even if, consciously, we think we are searching for love.
To prepare for intimacy and bonding, to prepare for a Soul Partner, we have house-cleaning to do. The often forgotten hurts of childhood need to be brought to consciousness and lovingly embraced. If not, they will contribute to the re-creation of what we experienced rather than what we want. We need to experience Self-Love deeply. Explore forgiveness. And choose to be accountable. We need to be supported, feel safe and heard.
Rick and Robin
Rick and Robin dated for three years in high school. But, the relationship ended soon after they went to different colleges. Fifty years and a lot of personal and spiritual growth later, they reconnected. This time both were ready for love. And, they have developed a Soul Partner relationship, now in its 8th year.

For healing to be profound and transformational, the outcome has to change our relationship with our Self… Our True Self.
In this Zoom video, Dr. Rick explores three levels of healing and takes us to transformational healing.
- Curative: A symptom is addressed and made to go away. For example if we have a headache and take an aspirin.
- Situational: The headache returns and one treats it at the body level, perhaps with a head rub or a peaceful walk.
- Transformational: The headache is treated as an opportunity to explore how we are out of balance with the world and our lives.
We explore what limiting beliefs contribute to the pain and in clearing out these limiting beliefs and their associated emotions we discover a more loving and expanded part of our Self.
