“Spiritual Dating” or “Conscious Dating” is an enlightened way of meeting and dating. There are no rules or expectations, and it’s about being true to yourself, conscious of the other person and staying in the flow. Conscious dating is more fun than the traditional style of dating, and it yields much better results. Using these spiritual dating keys, you will find that you are enjoying your encounters with other people in a pure sense and connecting on deeper, more soulful levels.
#1 BE BRUTALLY HONEST:
Question: "I met someone I feel so close to, but we are going through a lot of ups and downs. How do I know if they are the one for me or not?"
Good question! Even though I was blessed with a flash of inspiration and my husband and I both KNEW right away that we were perfect for each other, this isn’t always the case.
In fact, surveys have revealed that only about 12% experience “love at first sight” and less than 30% know their partner is right for them on their first date. Most people respond that they know “after a couple of weeks” that someone is right for them.
Whether single or in a relationship, we can always bring more sensuality into our lives….while keeping it green!

I have truly been moving through many deep levels and layers of healing, following the passing of my mother last March.
People often describe a complete transformation taking place in their lives after the death of someone close. Something about death causes you to reach deeply into your soul – as I said when my sister passed away over 4 years...
Finding the love of your life can be a daunting challenge these days, without having a little help! Most singles on a conscious path are relatively happy and content with their lives; however, they would usually prefer to be in a loving, spiritual partnership with a person that enhances their life and gives them the opportunity to grow and thrive in a deep, spiritual love, making life more even enjoyable!
Incorporating the following tips and techniques will help you to manifest the love of your life in no time!
Rest, Rejuvenation and Romance:
Use Feng Shui in your bedroom to attract a lover or strengthen your relationship
Are you looking to attract a lover?
Perhaps you would like to strengthen your romantic relationship with your partner. In Feng Shui, the bedroom (along with the kitchen and entrance) is one of the three most important areas of a home. If you are struggling to find the love of your life, constantly fighting with your partner, or simply waking up exhausted every morning, the layout and colors of your bedroom may be contributing to these circumstances.
It used to be common knowledge in consciousness circles that a person needed to be grounded both energetically and physically. People would talk about what foods helped them feel the most grounded, how spending time in nature helped them ground their meditative experiences and so on. However, I have noticed a trend in the last few years where people are getting very ungrounded, and are even encouraging others to engage "spiritual" practices that are very ungrounding. (Spell check says "ungrounding" is not a word, but I say that it is. )
Two of the adverse consequences of...
Having a green lifestyle in general is very important to most of us, so why not take it a step further and make sure that your dating lifestyle is also green.
Here are 10 great, green dating ideas:
Volunteer Together! Spend time learning and talking about causes or issues that are most important to you and your date/mate. You both are most likely to be inspired, turned on, and energized, by volunteering for something you believe in. For example, look in your neighborhood newspaper together and find out when local organizations are doing habitat restoration projects, feeding the homeless or having a fundraising dinner for the local environmental agency. Start locally and as the relationship evolves, you can expand your...
When dating, it is important to keep asking ourselves, what matters most to me? Am I over-compromising to avoid hurting someone else? Am I going outside of my deeper needs zone in hopes someone will change later? Am I judging myself unfavorably for my unique needs instead of honoring these? We have may have heard advice like this many times. Practicing it, however, is an art.
We all have the idea of a dream relationship. But what of that is fantasy and what is truly what serves us? The more we clarify what truly meets and serves us to ourselves, the more able we are to find and appreciate that one special person!
Here is the good news. Every...
The following is a vision that I received in October, 2011. It came to me in the evening before going to sleep while lying in bed. It was if I was actually there, living it. When I came back to this realm I took copious notes in my iphone which was on my night stand. After meditating the morning of 11/11/11, I felt guided to share this vision with our members in the form of a mass email. I got sooooo many responses from that email that I have now decided to post it on the site. I feel that this vision is waking up deep seeded cellular (and probably DNA) memories for those that read it, feel it and connect with it. I share this with unconditional love and a knowingness that we are all FAMILY. Sending you so much LOVE.
Here is the vision I was given:
This morning my Soul said this to me during a meditation and showing me as a symbolic image story of me as a precious gemstone lying buried just beneath the surface in the ground with a number of explorers looking to find me, that I, Janie, was a beautiful precious jewel that has been lying here buried in the ground.
Many have passed me by, walked over me even. I was within sight but they missed me........they missed me because they did not deserve me, they were not ready for me, they did not believe they would find me, they would never have appreciated me because they could not see my luster buried here all alone. I am centuries old.
I am waiting here for the one who does deserve me, for the one who will discover the treasure that lies within their reach. When I am found, the great value of that which I really am...
"The journey of the heart is truly the only journey there is."
Relationships seem to be one of the hottest topics these days. Everyone wants one, but hardly anyone seems happy once they're in one! Most of the time when we are talking about relationships, we mean those intimate ones with a significant other. However, relationships abound in our lives, with a range from casual to intimate. In truth, all relationships provide us with opportunities to grow spiritually and practice unconditional love. Here are a few basics to remember when you are dealing with issues in relationships, whether with an intimate partner, a friend, or even a business colleague.
Relationships replay childhood dynamics and unhealed wounds. We bring others into our lives who will trigger these replays and thus help us with healing the past. Do you have a history of abandonment? Because of the Law of Attraction, you will tend to...
The deeper connection of spiritual intimacy requires a dynamic interaction as well as moments of stillness and spaciousness. This constitutes the yang and yin of intimacy, the action and the receptivity. In a natural, harmonious intimate connection, there emerges a flow of giving and receiving, activity and stillness. This mirrors the dynamic nature of the Universe and all life.
Ancient Tantric yogis and Taoists intently studied this interplay in order to understand and learn how to be in alignment with life. They discovered that both the activity of creating intimate connections and the state of stillness require skill and conscious awareness. Such skills and consciousness form the essence and foundation of authentic Sacred Tantra practice. Furthermore understanding and facilitating the interplay between activity and stillness was an ...
Once in awhile, if we are fortunate, a simple, yet profound concept will appear in such a way as to fully command our attention, shift our understanding of life, and gift us with a more comprehensive core belief. This was the case with a wonderful little book by Gerald Jampolsky titled, "Love Is Letting Go Of Fear". Inspired (I believe) by "A Course In Miracles", Jampolsky quite simply and directly postulated that all of our experiences can be distilled down to either love or fear, and that as we release fear, love appears. I realized that this was such a fundamental, irrefutable tenet of human existence, and was amazed at how it began immediately to shift my perception of my life and life in general. I was also amazed that such an important core belief had not been presented...
