Owning Your Sensuality Mindset

My brilliant friend, Susan Bratton, is the trusted hot sex advisor to millions and an expert on all aspects on how to improve your sex life, which for many women, begins with improving your “sensuality mindset.” Please enjoy her wisdom on this topic.

Just recently I spoke at an all women’s sexuality event. Before I took the stage, I went around speaking to each individual woman. As we chatted, I asked them privately what they were thinking about when they decided to attend? What were they hoping I’d talk about? What issue was on their mind?

As I listened to the stories, the struggles and the desires of these beautiful women my mind filtered the meta-conversations into four main categories of interest. These women wanted to hear first about what kinds of treatments, procedures and technologies were available and effective at keeping their lady parts in good working order. They wanted to know how to keep their libido high as they aged. They wanted my tips on solo pleasure. And they wanted to hear about female pleasure potential — what was possible for them and what were they missing out on that they didn’t even know might be available?

What struck me was how each woman was standing for her sensual pleasure in her life. These women took on the responsibility of their sexual health and intimacy as a part of living a full and joyful existence. They knew that the more they learned, the more they benefitted. Women often think they are “broken” if they don’t have the same appetite as their partners. We women do not take into account that our male-bodied partners are testosterone dominant versus us women being estrogen-dominant. We do not have the same amount of daily appetite for intimacy as men. We can’t compare ourselves to our partners. We need more sensual experiences to help us with our desire.

What kind of sensual experiences keep our desire high? First of course is having a sensual mindset like the women in attendance at that event. They “own” their sensuality. They nurture it. The put intention on cultivating their own desire. 

But how?

How do other women get or keep themselves “in the mood?” Here are some ways that you can keep your libido thrumming through life:

Think senses: taste, touch, smell, sound, feeling.

When you are tickling your senses, you are supporting your lust for life.

  • Warm baths. 
  • Candlelight.
  • Sensual, feminine fabrics.
  • Aromatherapy with essential oils.
  • Slathering healthy lotion on your body to nourish your skin.
  • Eating succulent foods… think mangoes and watermelon.
  • Foot rubs and full body massages.
  • Romantic, sensual movement.
  • Any kind of dance, tai chi, improvisational movement.
  • Yoga, especially Hatha yoga with breath work.
  • Solo pleasuring.
  • Moving or sitting meditation, especially where you hold your womb lovingly in your hands.
  • Walking in nature, especially beach walks and forest bathing.
  • Taking a sauna or hot tub. 
  • Riding a horse, a bike or rowing a boat or kayak.
  • Sunbathing.

All of these activities get us out of our monkey minds and into our bodies… they slow us down… they connect us to our heartspace.

When you feel disconnected from yourself, review this list and take a moment to savor your life through your senses. This self-care will nurture you in countless ways.

Dream Crazy Big – Here’s How

I have been studying and practicing the art and science of manifestation since 1984, and I am always learning (or being reminded of) another dimension of it.
Last night I attended a big fundraiser for Just Like My Child, an organization I have been on the Board of for 13 years, and our keynote speaker was the amazing Mary Morrissey of Dream Builder fame. (that’s Vivian Glyck, founder of JLMC, with me and Mary in the photo)
The theme was Dream Crazy Big and when I arrived at the event, they asked me to put on my name tag what my big dream is.
I surprised myself when I wrote down “Make a movie.”
I’ve done lots of crazy big things in my life but making a movie hasn’t ever been on the list…. till now.
Mary talked about some of the ways we stop ourselves from pursuing a big dream:
Fear of failure 
Not knowing how
Seems impossible
Lack of resources
Yep, I previously said yes to having all these thoughts… and so what?
I am at stage of life and experience where I know and trust that what I’ve asked for is already mine.
I can clearly see this movie in my head. In fact, it’s so clear and powerful, that I have written an entire novel based on the images I see. I’m excited to see how it all unfolds as I declare to you, that I am going to make a movie!
What is your crazy is your dream???? Send me a short email, arielleford@nullgmail.com and I will add it to my manifesting altar.
Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,

Wabi Sabi Love

Some say the hardest part of life is dealing with the other humans.

Unlike most cats and dogs, people behavior is often not predictable. (or sometimes too predictable and that can also be maddening!)

Figuring out how to manage my feelings and judgements about people, and myself, has been a long-time mission and when I discovered Wabi Sabi, that made a big difference (most of the time).

The ancient Japanese practice of Wabi Sabi is about finding the beauty and perfection in imperfection… in all things old, worn, imperfect, and impermanent, from broken pottery to driftwood and beyond.

In my world, I expanded it to be Wabi Sabi Love, to find the beauty and perfection in behavior and things that make us crazy.

It’s essentially about finding the gold in the dark.

Shifting your perception.

Changing your story.

If you are ready to go from “annoyed” to “enjoyed,” Goalcast (found on Facebook and Instagram) recently sent out an edit of a longer talk I gave on this topic.

This short video is 4 minutes and has been seen by 1.4M so far.

The MOST Important Love RULE

Many of us were taught the “Golden Rule” as kids:

“Do unto others as you would like to be done unto.”

This works well most of the time EXCEPT when it comes to love.

With your soulmate you want to practice the Platinum Rule:

“Do unto them as they would like to be done unto.”

“This requires that you understand their “love language.”

If they prefer “words of affirmation” or “touch” over “gifts” or they prefer “acts of service” over “quality time” give them that.

With the Golden rule we tend to give our partners what we want, thinking that the things that make us feel loved are the same for them.

With the Platinum Rule you are giving what they most want. (FYI, there is a free online quiz you can take to discover your love language, just google it)

And, it doesn’t matter if you and your partner have totally different love languages. It only matters that you recognize what makes them feel most loved and then provide that.

P.S. This is why I wrote The Everything Book: The Essential Details About The One You Love.

It’s a “fill in the blank” book to complete and share with your partner.

It is designed to capture the essential details about the one you love. It goes BEYOND the 5 Love Languages.

Science Indicates Feelingizations Work!

For those of you who do my feelingizations to manifest your desires, you know that they all begin with a “heart lock-in,” a tool developed by The Institute of Heartmath, to get you into a state of “heart coherence (HRV).”

Essentially you are guided to move your attention from your head down to the area around your heart as you recall and re-experience feelings of love, appreciation or gratitude. You “re-member” one or all of these feelings and as you do, your heart rhythm changes into the HRV state and that is measurable.

Once you are in this HRV, heart-centered state, it is from there that you drop in your desire, for whatever it is you most want to manifest, knowing and trusting that what you have asked for is already yours. These feelingizations are available for free, click the button below!

Get your FREE gifts here!

This new study has validated the tool’s effect on synchronization between the heart and geomagnetic activity, which is significant because this synchronization is associated with better health.

Here is part of the report:

The published study explains that “higher levels of HRV are associated with resiliency, capacity to self-regulate and to adapt to changing demands,” and lower levels of HRV “indicate pathology, chronic stress, or insufficient functioning in regulatory systems … and is associated with all-cause mortality.”

“The Heart Lock-In Technique,” the researchers explained, “focuses on building the capacity to sustain heartfelt positive emotions. The technique is generally practiced for five to fifteen minutes at a time, although longer sessions may be used as well.”

So, now you can manifest your desires while you also improve your health!

Feel-good romance to change your level of attraction.

“While I was in the process of finding my soulmate, reading happy-ending love stories—AKA romance novels—really helped me.

Nothing lifts the mood for “feelingizations” better than a well-written story where the characters emerge triumphant in their search for love. But being a physician with knowledge of psychology, as well as a committed to personal growth, I realized something was missing.

It was difficult to find positive, enjoyable stories with relatable characters facing realistic challenges. That’s how my Sunshine State Series started.

In each funny, sweet and sexy standalone novel, the heroine must overcome her own barriers to love—from getting trapped in her own list of “deal-breakers,” to the ultimate fear of finding love and then losing it.”

5 Ways to Vibrant Love

This week I am very excited to introduce you to my friend Shayne Traviss, who is an author, student of life, producer and founder of VividLife.me (And Oprah follows him on Twitter!) I’ve asked him to guest blog and share some of his wisdom about love with you. This for both singles and couples. Enjoy!

Are you on an endless search for ‘the love of your life’? Signed up to dating sites, apps… but every night you end up alone, walking the stairs with a cup of tea, snuggling in bed watching other people’s love stories on Netflix, wondering, ‘When will my prince(ess) arrive?’ You’ve been waiting for this fairy tale to come to true your entire life thanks to the conditioning of story books and Disney movies. When the whole time the love of your life, the prince(cess) has been right under your nose. You’ve just been looking outside for what’s already within.

Within each of us is both the inherent truth that we are what we’ve been looking for, and the wisdom to attract what we desire. We have to only stop the outward search long enough to listen to our inner guidance.

The secret to finding love, is to be love, like attracts like, love attracts love. So if you’re not vibrating love; still healing from a relationship, low self worth, holding onto anger, unforgiveness,… you need to start right there. With what the great Sufi poet Rumi so eloquently described in this quote:

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

You won’t find love (true love), until you’re vibrating love and to KEEP LOVE, you also must vibrate love.

5 Ways to Vibrate Love

Be Still

It’s amazing what insight comes when we stop long enough to listen and how fulfilled our path becomes when we use what we’ve found to live authentically’

Authenticity being key. And how can we know our own voice, our own desires, unless we get still enough to listen. There are many practices designed to help us channel that voice, my personal favorite being Shinrin Yoku, which is Japanese for Forest Therapy, and others like; Friluftsliv (Norwegian for connecting with presence to your natural environment), Vipassana (meaning insight), and of course Meditation. And once we’ve given ourselves the time and space to be still, whatever path we decided to take to get there, we access a place and a peace quite beyond our understanding. Deeply in alignment (vibrating) with love, sweet unconditional love, most importantly of ourselves.


And from this space, where we’re vibrating with true authentic love. We take the opportunity to inquire within, as to discover any, and all obstacles we have or have built, to love. Perhaps we don’t know our own true self worth, perhaps we are carrying thorns from past relationships whether with a spouse, family, or friends, maybe we’re holding onto resentment, anger, unforgiveness which are all in a sense blocking us from being in the vibration of love.

And if we’re not vibrating love, we can’t attract love.


Listen to the wisdom you’ve gain in the stillness and use it to work (in baby steps of course) on tearing down the walls (obstacles to love) and remember you didn’t build them overnight, and so you won’t take them down that way either. Recovery from relationships, and most importantly the one we have with ourselves is a process that is best done ‘slow, steady, connected and focused’. Each step along the way gaining the wisdom necessary to…

Let Go

Learn to let go of the obstacles you’ve built one by one, and with that, let go of the expectations you have that love show up all neat and tidy like the fairy tales we’ve been trapped in. It’s not coming at you on a white horse, in a fancy ball gown. It’s coming for you with a big dose of reality and a mirror that reflects at you exactly what you need to let go, and to let love.

Trust Yourself

And from this space, trust yourself, dive in, run into loves arms and you will be embraced by love. But the first lover you should embrace isn’t another. The first lover you should embrace is yourself. And when you’re in love with yourself others can’t help but fall in love with you.

Because love is the universal language without words. It works on the law attraction. And we attract to us not what we ask for, but what we are.

Why Whistleblowers are Heroes!

We live in a period of sweeping corruption — and a golden age of whistleblowing. Over the past few decades, principled insiders who expose wrongdoing have gained unprecedented stature, emerging as the government’s best weapon against corporate misconduct–and the citizenry’s best defense against government gone bad.

Whistleblowers force us to confront fundamental questions about the balance between free speech and state secrecy, and between individual morality and corporate power. Now they have triggered impeachment proceedings of Donald Trump.

In Crisis of Conscience, Tom Mueller traces the rise of whistleblowing through a series of riveting case studies, showing them to be the freethinking, outspoken citizens for whom our republic was conceived – whose inspiring acts we must emulate if our democracy is to survive.

Deepak Chopra and A Mind-blowing Experience

More than fifteen years ago, Brian and I traveled through South India with Deepak Chopra and a dozen friends.

One of the highlights of our journey was to experience a “palm leaf reading” also known as a Nadi reading, where a priest and an interpreter found our life history written in ancient Tamil, on a palm leaf.

These forecasts were created thousands of years ago by a Sage and include everything from your name, your life history with extraordinary details, your past life info that impacts your karma in this life (for instance I didn’t have kids in this life because in my last life I was a healer and performed illegal abortions!).

You also discover what is predicted for all the years you have left on the earth including how, when, and where you will die . (Learning that part is optional!)

Deepak had experienced a Nadi reading the year before he took us and he was blown away by the process and the accuracy. One small tidbit from his reading was that learned the name his mother was born with, a family secret he never knew that turned out to be true! He was also given additional life direction he had not previously considered and put that into action and was very pleased with the results.

These readings have information that cannot be found on the internet and the priests who do the readings, don’t read or write English. We were in a remote forest, six hours from the next city, in a concrete block room with a single light bulb over head and no other electronics, and an outhouse!

It all begins by providing your thumbprint. With that thumbprint (they do not know your name or date of birth, just whether you are male or female) a search begins for the bundle of palm leafs that may contain your leaf.

At my first in-person reading in the forest, my reader/priest was named Ravi and my translator was Babu. It took about 45 minutes before Ravi finally had the right leaf for me. (That was about the average time it took for most of us).

We knew he had the right leaf because it contained the names of my parents and husband (all badly mispronounced – imagine hearing Sheila and Harvey in “hinglish”), they told me my name was Arielle (that is not the name I was born with, I was so shocked I asked them to show me which marking on the leaf represented “Arielle”) and included that I was born early on a Monday morning (which even I didn’t know ‘till I got home and looked it up), that I have a younger brother & sister and that my father had two wives (all of which is true) and then proceeded to give me extreme details about the remainder of my life including the kind of work I do, business things to beware of, dates for auspicious things to do, upcoming physical ailments, all of which happened even though I had forgotten about them till I checked my notes years later.

Over the years many people have wanted to have Nadi readings but unless you went to South India and had a connection to the “right” readers, it was impossible.

A few months ago I met an amazing man who has now found a way to provide Nadi readings from South India via Zoom. I recently had a reading and it was just as real and authentic and mind-blowing as my in person reading. I was astounded by the amount of details I was given about what is happening now and in my coming days. They knew stuff about some of my thinking that I haven’t even shared with Brian yet!

Is there a leaf for everyone? No. However, if this is something you are interested in, they will search for your bundle (which can take a month or two), and if it is not found, they will refund your deposit.

Learn more all about it below and then decide if it’s right for you.

by Deepak Chopra

This book unlocks the secrets to moving beyond our present limitations to access a field of infinite possibilities and become METAHUMAN — to move past the limitation constructed by the mind and to enter a new state of awareness in which we have deliberate and concrete access to peak experiences that can transform people’s lives from the inside out.

For centuries the great artists, scientists, writers, and many ordinary people have gone beyond the everyday physical world. Chopra reveals how to wake up to experiences that will blow open our bodies, minds, and souls.

To make this as practical as possible, Chopra offers a 31-day guide to becoming METAHUMAN. Once you wake up your life becomes transformed, because pure conscious- ness—which is the field of all possibilities then dawns in your life. Only then does your infinite potential become your personal reality.

Your work is not your Source, God is your Source

Where do you find inspiration and motivation? I often trip over it in the most unlikely places.

Today I walked into my workout room and the TV was on and Pastor Joel Osteen was just beginning his sermon. Something told me to listen. I did.

I was surprised and delighted to hear what I would call Law of Attraction being preached in Christian terminology.

What a great reminder when I heard him say:

“Your work is not your Source, God is your Source.”

Joel Osteen was preaching on making your big dreams come true by holding true to your faith in God (Universe) to set you up even though you can’t imagine how it’s going to come true. How right he is.  We don’t need to know HOW our dreams will manifest but we do need to trust and have faith for our biggest desires.

Then I started thinking about where else I source inspiration from because I know that I am not here to do anything of value by myself.

I am inspired by my husband Brian and the way he gives deep love to everyone he encounters. He makes me a better person.

I am inspired by my dear friend Marianne Williamson who is a candidate for President, knowing that she has big, powerful, game-changing ideas to improve our society, in spite of the sometimes ugly attacks that come on the harsh campaign trail.

I am inspired by two very dear friends, Claire Zammit and Vivian Glyck.
Claire is teaching women around the globe how to grow and thrive through her Feminine Power curriculum, and Vivian is changing the world with her Girl Power proven program to support adolescent girls in developing nations to stay in school, protect and respect their bodies, and design a life of their choice.

How The Experts Calm Themselves Down

One of my favorite saying is this: “if you don’t want to burn out, stop living like you are on fire!”

My fantasy is that I “glide through life,” and yet my reality is more like, OMG! Holy Shit! and I race around like the world will end if I don’t finish my To-Do list. Of course this creates tons of stress, anxiety, crazy fears that something bad is gonna happen, etc.
As I mentioned last week, my go to solution is EFT Tapping and I decided to ask my friends what they do to bring themselves back to neutral, sanity, or whatever happy place they want to be.
See if any of these solutions work for you!
Ken Druck
First I recognize that I am in a state of “this moment really sucks.” By acknowledging that and realizing that I am defenseless against my own fear, sorrow, or anger, I surrender and listen to what the emotions are trying to say to me. When I listen with the ear of self compassion I see it’s my internal radar trying to give me something of value and then it gives me a solution, whether it’s mindfulness, exercising, listening to music, talking to a trusted confidant, etc.
JJ Virgin
My go to for when I am feeling stressed, anxious and unhappy is to frame my day with what I call my GAM – gratitude, appreciation and miracles.
I write down three things I am grateful for in my morning journal, let someone know what I appreciate about them during the day and end the day with a little miracle that happened the day.
Dr. Anna Cabeca
Mine is to smile and think of my “Cheer Word,” i.e. a word that makes me smile. It may be SMILE, or JIGGLE and then allow myself to feel joy in the moment as much as possible.
Peggy McColl
I stop myself and ask myself this question: What would you love? And then I think about the answer to that question and I follow up with: What does that feel like? and then I go straight to feeling it.
Allison Maslan
I journal and ask myself: What is really going on underneath my fearfulness or worry. Is this fear based in reality or from my past experiences? In most cases, it is from the past and I am being triggered.
Then I make myself focus on a project. In the past, I used to allow my worries to paralyze me and I would not be able to focus on anything. By focusing on a project, I feel good that I am not allowing my fear to hold me back. After awhile, I have often forgotten what was worried about.
Lisa Garr
I get on my bike or go on a walk or run and within 17 minutes, I talk to God, Wayne Dyer, and whoever else is listening.  My thoughts completely transform into compassionate, solution-oriented, motivated thoughts.
Marci Shimoff
I do the Inner-Ease™ Technique from Heartmath. Here is an abbreviated version:
1. Acknowledge your feelings.
2. Do Heart-Focused Breathing by imaging you are breathing in and out through your heart.
3. Then with each breath imagine that you are drawing in a feeling of inner-ease.
4. When the stressful feelings have calmed, affirm with a heartfelt commitment that you want to anchor and maintain the state of ease throughout your day.
Elle Russ
I listen to an applicable affirmation recording by Justin Perry of the You Are Creators channel on YouTube, he has so many and I love his soothing voice.
Jonathon Aslay
I write out exactly what I’m feeling and then do a search on those words for a YouTube Abraham Hicks video and watch that. Often whichever video pops up is usually exactly what I need to hear.
Heidi Hanna
Essential oils, such as lavender to calm or ylang ylang for creativity and it
instantly connects me to the present moment. I do this in the morning while doing breathing meditations so that they become like an energy anchor for the state I want to shift to.
The Truth About Being a Coach


“Hype or Happiness” (you decide)
We’ve all heard the stories about being a life coach. Some are amazing and some… not so much. The first thing that you have to understand is that coaching isn’t for everyone.
Yes, most people, with the right kind of training can become a successful coach… but there’s a lot more to it than just picking up the phone, giving some advice and then collecting a check.
Now don’t get me wrong. I personally believe that being a coach can be one of the most rewarding professions, personally and financially.
Not only do you get to help others achieve their goals, but you will also find yourself achieving your goals much easier. If you like to help others and want to learn more about being a coach, I suggest you go here and watch this free video and decide for yourself if it’s right for you.
Wow! What A Book!

In That Will Never Work is the incredible untold story of how Netflix went from concept to company – all revealed by co-founder and first CEO Marc Randolph.
Now with over 150 million subscribers, Netflix’s triumph feels inevitable, but the twenty first century’s most disruptive startup began with few believers.
From having to pitch his own mother on being an early investor, to the motel conference room that served as a first office, to server crashes on launch day, to the now-infamous meeting when Netflix brass pitched Blockbuster to acquire them, Marc Randolph’s transformational journey exemplifies how anyone with grit, gut instincts and determination can change the world – even with an idea that many think will never work.

Staying Centered and Sane in A Crazy World

Lately many of my conversations with friends have been around just how stressed out everyone is. More than normal. Anxiety. Fear. Depression. Uncertainty. All seem to be rampant.

My theory is that we all have our “usual” mishigosh to deal with and now, with all the troubles in the world, we’re also feeling the collective angst in the field.

One of the ways I manage myself is with a simple, easy to do, and fast technique known as EFT Tapping. I suggest you give it a try, here’s a link to a free 5 minute video from my genius friend Nick Ortner.

Watch the free 5 minute video here!

And, if you need a more intensive practice please keep reading. This is what Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love) posted on her Facebook page recently:

The reality of my life is this: Managing my mental health is very nearly a full-time job. I don’t take it lightly, because the stakes are high. Like many of us, I have a mind that is a very dangerous neighborhood. Left unattended, my mind will fester, rot, and roll me over the brink into anxiety and depression. I have a particularly muscular storytelling instinct — and the world has rewarded me generously for that! — but the dark side of my gift is that my mind is also capable of generating terrible, frightening, life-annihilating stories about myself and about the world. I can scare the living shit out of myself, and—in the process—destroy my life.

The battle begins quite literally the moment I wake up in the morning. With the first moment of consciousness, the insanity begins. The terrorist who lives inside my mind begins bullying and threatening me.

But I’m not powerless.

Over the years I’ve adapted practices to keep my mind flourishing and my life contented.

The first thing I do every single morning is pray.
(Specifically, I pray to be relieved from the bondage of self.) Then I meditate. Then I dance. Then I write myself a letter from Love. (This is the most important part of my day, when I connect to Love herself, and ask her what she would have me know today.)

At various times in my life, I have gone (or will go) to therapy, to yoga, to 12-step programs. I’ve taken medication at times. Whenever I see a church door open, I walk in, take a knee, and pray. I try to reach out to somebody every day with a message of Love, which ends up helping ME. I practice generosity, which also helps ME.

It’s an all-day job. It’s why I go to bed so early, so I wake up early, and begin tending to my mental health!

It’s a lot.

But nothing matters more, and nobody else can do it for me. I accept sacred stewardship over this mind.
