    4 Steps to Help Men Identify What They’re Feeling and Be Comfortable to Share It: Aaron Solo

    4 Steps to Help Men Identify What They’re Feeling and Be Comfortable to Share It: Aaron Solo

    Is there any place in your relationship that you shutdown and isolate from your partner by saying nothing or getting away from them? Are you even on the other side of things where you lash out at your partner to get them off your back?
    In either case this is probably because you are not "good with emotions". Which is not something to feel bad about because not many of us start out with the ability to even identify exactly what we are feeling to even be able to articulate it. 
    This episode is all about starting the process of building both of the skills to identify what emotion you are feeling and then be able to share it with your partner. This will allow you to know even more about yourself and about each other. Tune in for 4 steps to go from not knowing what to say at all, to having even more connected conversations with your partner.

    The 4 Elements of True Love (They’re Not What You Think)

    The 4 Elements of True Love (They’re Not What You Think)

    Love is kind of the point of a relationship right? We know that you felt a lot of love for your partner early in your relationship and now that love probably feels different or maybe less. As you progress through your relationship your feeling of love will be different as you have more trust and comfort with each other. Maybe some of the challenges in your relationship have led you to a place of currently not feeling as much love. So how do you keep love not only alive but growing?
    You should notice that in either case above, love is often based on outside conditions and how happy you currently feel. Whether it's about financial security, how your partner has been talking to you, or feeling too routine in your day to day life all of these are conditional feelings of love. In this podcast you will learn the 4 elements of love that allow for a truly unconditional love to be alive in your relationship. Then knowing these 4 elements, when you do feel less love between you and your partner, you will know the exact way to generate it.

    Differentiate What Your Partner is Saying vs What They Actually Need

    Differentiate What Your Partner is Saying vs What They Actually Need

    Let’s be honest, we all have said to our partners one of these statements: “that’s not what I said, that's not what actually happened, what you are saying doesn’t make sense”. Especially for those partners (like Aaron) that are logical left brained people. As soon as this happens the predictable next sequence will be an argument or conflict, or at least not feeling like your partner is on your side. 
    Though this can feel like one of those areas where you and your partner are just different (male vs female or masculine vs feminine differences), the real culprit here is not making the differentiation between what your partner is saying versus what they need. 
    In this episode we cover this big difference between the actual words that you or your partner use and what the missing need or deeper desire really is. You will get questions to ask your partner that lead to more connection and understanding than the typical difference of opinion, recurring conflict, or simple disconnections in your day to day life. This will elevate you and your listening skills in your relationship.

    Our Ritual for Reviewing Life and Creating New Aligned Goals Before Starting the New Year

    Our Ritual for Reviewing Life and Creating New Aligned Goals Before Starting the New Year

    Whether you can’t wait to end this year or you are just excited to keep the momentum you have going, this is the episode for you. The end of the year just so happens to be a “made up” time that you can truly reset and refocus. For some you don’t want the next year to be like this past year. For others, you realize you just want to experience life and your relationship newly. Either way it comes down to a lot more than just setting new goals like most everyone talks about at the end of each year. 
    In this episode you will get the 5 questions you MUST reflect on and ask each other so you can complete this past year, and keep it from impacting your next year. Doing this as a couple is VITAL to not hitting bumps and road blocks a few months in. Once you establish this type of “blank slate” to work from, you will get the 5 ways to create what it is you desire together for the coming year.
