One of the reasons people continue to seek out help from us long after they have learned the basic skills of creating a powerful relationship, is that they also learned that they were asleep in their lives or unconsciously living. No one ever knows the moment when they fall asleep. *Stay awake *Keep learning, *Keep becoming.
A lot of time and attention was given to developing intellectually through years of schooling. Little emphasis was placed on learning emotional regulation and development. All decision we make are based on an emotion. When we are unaware of our emotions we lose our power and become reactive. You can only connect with your partner as deeply as you are connected to your own inner-self through emotions. Emotion is the language of relationship.

People will be sitting on the couch watching TV while working on their laptop at the same time as texting on their phone…three screens deep. Our minds crave distraction, like our bodies crave pizza, wine and chocolate.
Screens take us away from where we are and dump us into a black hole of endless searching and nothingness as our real lives slip by unnoticed, while we are distracted, which lulls us into an unconscious sleep while we are wide awake.
