“Our relationships with others can’t be better than ourselves.”– Katherine Woodward Thomas

We had the pleasure of gathering with our “go to” experts when it comes to the topic of love and relationships for our latest DENtalks LIVE panel on SOULMATES. We were joined by Ryan Weiss – Life coach and Spiritual Counselor, Jill Willard – Intuitive, Medium, Meditation Leader and author, and Katherine Woodward Thomas – NY Times Bestselling Author, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, and Transformative Educator. Each guest shared their unique insights about what a soul mate is and how we attract different soul mates depending on where we are at in life. More importantly, they offered practical tips for those in search of a soul mate connection by reminding us that this quest is often more about “ourselves being the one” rather than “finding the one.” This panel is filled with a multitude of lessons, but one shines through it all – If we can cultivate joy within ourselves and evolve into our own maturity, this is when our light shines and we thus attract the right soul mate who is meant for our soul growth. We start the episode with a beautiful grounding meditation from Ryan Weiss.

“When we start getting into the mind of I’ve found the one, am I remembering I’m the one?”

  3. Self-Care Hack? 
    I make sure to clear everyone out of my space every night and get out into nature. I clear people’s energy by creating a bubble out infront of you, putting everyone from the day in that bubble, and then blow up the bubble. This gives the person their energy back.
