Good Sex Makes For A Lasting Marriage

Good Sex Makes For A Lasting Marriage

Commented Oct 9, 2012 at 09:30:03 in Weddings

“Yes, good sex is definitely a hot glue that holds a marriage together! Even if sex drive seems to have disappeared over time, it can be revived and renewed. Also, if there is love and commitment, a couple can actually learn to create the desired chemistry. We're not entirely at the mercy of some unknown force!”

Spiritual Intelligence: Living as Your Higher Self

Commented Aug 11, 2012 at 07:34:34 in Healthy Living

“Good post. As an aside, sometimes I call my higher self my "hired" self... It exists in service to the best of myself!”

“I like that! My "hired self" is to be in service. Cute! Thanks for sharing. :)”
The Power of Patience

The Power of Patience

Commented Aug 11, 2012 at 07:27:37 in Healthy Living

“Yes, patience has for too long been underrated, undervalued. How wonderful to hear praise for this beautiful life skill. Yet perhaps there's a little too much emphasis on the notion that action or some kind of result is always the reward for patience. Sometimes patience can evolve into contentment with what is. Contentment is also undervalued.”

Meditation In Action: Learning To Take A Sacred Pause

Commented Apr 26, 2012 at 15:28:02 in Healthy Living

“I appreciate these steps for activating "mindstrength". In addition, as I'm sure you know, our bodies can help with the process of centering and modulating our reactivity. Taking an extra few moments to establish a connection with our legs, feet, and the ground we are standing on can add substance to the breathing practice you describe.”

Prayer as Medicine for the Sick

Commented Apr 23, 2012 at 11:50:02 in Religion

“It came to me once, that "Prayer is the flow we experience when in the Presence of God." So, yes, how healing such experiences can be!
~ Diana Daffner”

Trevand on Apr 24, 2012 at 04:27:44

“Intimacy Retreats,: I suggest it should be "Rational Thinking Retreats."

Giving Advice: You Should Never Say

Giving Advice: You Should Never Say "You Should"

Commented Feb 21, 2012 at 20:08:02 in Fifty

“Ha! Even telling MYSELF that I "should" do something seems to automatically erect a barrier between my thoughts and my actions. Constantly hearing unsolicited advice from another, well, the barrier between us gets more and more solid. Learning how to listen to our partner's thoughts and expressed feelings, without responding with a "fix," is one of the keys to relationship harmony.”

The 7 Best Excuses for Procrastinating

Commented Feb 15, 2012 at 19:16:00 in Healthy Living

“Excellent article, thanks. I love some of your phrases, like "the vibrant stream of a somatic flow state." (Sounds rather tantric, yes?) I will say, though, that sometimes I do enjoy hanging out in those "tide pools alongside the stream of life." They can be nourishing resting places.. (but not somewhere I'd want to spend my whole life.) Most of all, I appreciate your encouragement to be "mindful of the shifting sensations as you propel yourself forward." We do seem to know inside ourselves when we're moving in the right direction.. ~Diana Daffner”

Do We Owe Our Spouses Sex?

Do We Owe Our Spouses Sex?

Commented Nov 7, 2011 at 22:27:46 in Divorce

“Sex is not the answer. Sex is the question. YES is the answer! This said, then, we can begin to explore what is meant by "sex." If sexual activity is not serving the heart of a relationship, if it is not nourishing and bonding, or fun, or intimate, then it is time to make it so.”

Sex: Plain or Profound, What's Your Style?

Sex: Plain or Profound, What's Your Style?

Commented Oct 21, 2011 at 18:15:21 in Style

“I'm in absolute agreement, of course. There is definitely something very sacred about an intimate connection with another human being. And when we have that attitude, we experience sex that way.

Spiritual Sex in an Increasingly Virtual World

Commented Oct 10, 2011 at 12:04:24 in Style

“Yes, "spiritual sex" offers great potential for deep bonding with one's partner. No matter what other fun approaches we may also enjoy, my husband and I always return to our daily "spiritual sex" practice for the most nourishing, fulfilling, ongoing experience of love in our relationship. We call it "Peaceful Passion" and wrote about it in our book, Tantric Sex for Busy Couples. While it does take some understanding and practice, everyone really can benefit from it. Thanks for this article.
~ Diana Daffner”

“Hi Diana - Yes, everyone really can benefit from it! The Daffners are very good teachers - they know what they are talking about! Blessings!”

Why Being an Author Really Is That Great

Commented Oct 6, 2011 at 17:42:33 in Books

“Arielle, I so agree with what you have written here. My book is going into its second printing. Knowing that thousands of people have access to these teachings is very fulfilling, even though they may never show up at our workshops! Our passion for what we do has actually deepened due to the success of our book. ~ Diana Daffner”

hp blogger Arielle Ford on Nov 8, 2011 at 22:55:49

“Thanks Diane. It's true, the more you talk about your passion, the more passion you have for it!”
Is Technology Stealing Your Sleep?

Is Technology Stealing Your Sleep?

Commented Mar 31, 2011 at 15:34:55 in Healthy Living

“Good advice- and reminder - about keeping tech out of the bedroom, which we all know is challenging. And it can impact not only our sleep but also our relationship with our bedroom-sharing partner. Of course, it's not only tech devices that steal our sleep and our attention. Books, magazines, crossword puzzles, and, my favorite, sudoku, can really do a number on us! Here's my experience: http://IntimacyRetreats.com/sudoku.htm
The Power of Affirmations

The Power of Affirmations

Commented Mar 30, 2011 at 22:46:11 in Healthy Living

“Wonderful to hear of such transformation! I have found affirmations also powerful in my marriage, as a way to counter judgments that come up about my husband. "If you judge people, you have no time to love them," said Mother Theresa. Positive affirmations make it easier to jump from judgment to love: http://intimacyretreats.com/jump.htm
