And my star is born

Last year, during these very hours (January 23rd), my wife went full-on into labor.  We visited the midwife, did some last-minute grocery shopping, and came home to chill out (as best as our Hypnobirthing techniques enabled us to do).  By three in the morning on...

The Blessing of a Busted Laptop Computer

For the past four months, I've pretty much lived with my laptop computer at my side.  The internet is just a couple clicks away at any moment, which has made blogging (and keeping in touch with the world) relatively easy.  Any time I have a spare second - on with the...

Personal Development: What Snowstorms Teach Us about Overcoming Procrastination

The first snowstorm of the year is always exciting, especially when it arrives in the middle of the night, and we wake up to a world that looks totally different than it did mere hours before. Then reality sets in: how to MOVE all that snow? That’s what I’m thinking about right now, as I type this post. And I just realized that shoveling snow is about more than shoveling snow. It’s about procrastination, and the way we wrestle with everything we want to accomplish in our lives. Just as there are many different options for getting the snow off your driveway, there are many ways to overcome the influence of procrastination in your life. Imagine that the “things you want to get done” in your life is like having a driveway full of that white stuff. And more is coming down. The beauty is that any way you approach it, you will clear your driveway. Grab your earmuffs and read on (for a more direct discussion on overcoming procrastination, you can also check out this article by K. Stone on lifehack.org) !

Music: Breakfast, please!

Breakfast.  It's an important meal.  All the professionals tell you to eat it.  Even some amateurs will tell you to eat your breakfast (the nerve!).  So what do you do when you wake up one day feeling under the weather, and eating a big healthy breakfast is the last...

Hypnobirthing: What a great way to arrive

I don't think I'll ever forget the way I felt when we saw the word "pregnant" flash on the digital readout of the pregnancy test.  My wife was only a few days "late" - so it was really a lark (or maybe a hunch) that propelled us to the local pharmacy to pick up a few...

    May 10, 2017 by Bahia146 from United States

    I am so grateful for this podcast. I am 29 years old and deep into part of my healing journey where I am learning to do the work of loving myself, and communicate clearly and honestly so I can be available for partnership. I gain SO much from this podcast. The guests are top notch, Neil's questions are the EXACT questions that I want to ask too!! I'm just so grateful to live in an age where all of this wisdom is available in this format. Thank you for creating this Neil. I am a super fan of this podcast!

  • A Great Resource
    November 4, 2016 by Dean Lohmeyer from United States

    I didn't know how much help I needed in my own relationship until things got rocky. My wife asked me to check out a couple podcasts from Relationship Alive, and suddenly I'm listening to all of them. They are making a big difference in how I approach my relationship with my wife. It seems like every podcast gives me something else to think about in my relationship with my wife, or change in my marriage, or at least discuss with my wife. This is a great resource for anyone who is having any kind of struggle in their relationship. I highly recommend it.

  • Excellent show
