Words have energy and we choose the words we say unconsciously.
The Future [21:22]
Sarah needs to forget about her history and her previous stories about herself. She has been reacting rather than responding. She should determine what she needs and what she wants, then ask her date higher quality questions which will reveal to her the answers that really matter.
The New Guy [24:42]
Sarah is afraid she is going to screw things up with the new guy because she has grown so accustomed to failed relationships. She also feels unlovable which may be bleeding through into her actions. Once she realizes there is nothing to fuck up, she should practice receiving his attention, his time and his kindness.
Sarah’s homework is to practice receiving love and to turn up her love limit. Every day she needs to spend two minutes imagining herself receiving love as a Gold Child – her ideal, authentic love-able self.
