We came back home from California. Ten days of being together 24/7.

Traveling to beautiful beaches and having fun at magical Disneyland. Our son turned 4, and he had the best time of his life yet.

Speaking of travel and fun, if you want to get to know someone, go on a trip with them. Even if it’s a short weekend getaway, you’ll learn so much about another person. And yourself.

What I learned is that cutting down my one-hour morning ritual (I wrote about it in detail in this blog post) to a quick 5-minute meditation (so that we could have more “fun time”) had a direct impact on how I felt throughout the day.

Even though we were on vacation, I felt a bit tense and worried about being able to do everything we wanted to. And that affected how present and relaxed I was around other people.

I bet you can relate if you don’t have time to be in silence and meditate because you’re very busy and want to make time for exercise, work, and dates. Most likely it generates more masculine energy with the focus on the “doing, doing, doing” and stresses you out.

That’s why I’m so excited to share with you Oprah and Deepak’s all-new, free 21-Day Meditation Experience, Creating Peace from the Inside Out: The Power of Connection.

Because daily meditation can transform how you feel and relate to others.

So if you want to show up as your best self and master the art of connecting with men you date, then make time for regular meditation.

This challenge just started on October 31, and you can listen to a replay of yesterday’s session (and each one following) for 5 days, so that you won’t miss anything.

I’ve been doing each one of these 21-day challenges for several years and add them to my personal success library.

What I love about this brand new challenge is that it focuses on relationships and teaches how to create a relationship from the inside out. This is so empowering because we no longer rely on someone else who’s outside of us.

Here are the two excellent rules I learned from the first day of this meditation challenge:

Rule 1: Even though it takes two people to create a relationship, the responsibility for connecting starts with you. Start with yourself and be at peace with yourself.
Rule 2: Everything depends on your level of awareness. Heart-to-heart connections are never automatic; they need attention. Grow your awareness.

That’s so true. When we take the time to quiet the mind and become more aware, we notice and create more opportunities to connect with others on a deeper level. Whether it’s an eye contact you make with a man who ends up approaching you or being present in a way that inspires him to ask you on another date, it only adds value to your love life.

Join me on this 21-day challenge and let me know when you complete it. I’d love to hear about the impact it will have on your love life.

P.S. If you meditate for 21 days and share an impact it has on your love life, you can win a scholarship to my upcoming group coaching program.
