Casual Sex and Hook Ups
November 19, 2021 • 59 MIN
How do you describe a hook-up? How do you describe casual sex? Is this something of interest to you? Even if it isn’t something you are interested in, do you understand why other people may be? There are many topics I invite experts to discuss with me that can help you to learn more options and about what makes other people “tick”. I like to understand people and their personalities and behavior and I’ve found that the more I learn about the options and activities we have in life – the more I can understand people and their choices. And, the less I feel the need to judge people. Sarah Martin is my guest for this show, and we hope you will join us for this lively conversation.

A Recipe for Healthy Emotions

One thing that many people are confused about is how to manage and understand our emotions. Men are supposed to suppress and hide their emotions.

Female Empowerment Not Overcompensation
September 24, 2021 • 59 MIN
Female empowerment is a topic that I like to discuss on the show. But there are two caveats to the discussion that I also want to include. One is that I don’t feel that empowering women, means that we need to demean or belittle men. Second, it doesn’t mean that women need to be bitchy and cruel. True empowerment is not the overcompensating that we often see on display. On this show we’ll have an interesting discussion about these topics with my guest, Mariquita Solis, the Joyful Relationship Coach. We hope you will join us!

Spirit Animals and You
April 30, 2021 • 59 MIN
From time to time I add new features to Ready for Love Radio and I admit this one is different and definitely “outside the box”. But, I think people who listen to me know that I like “outside the box” and things that make us think and get to know ourselves in deeper and more meaningful ways. Ages ago, I heard people talking about spirit animals but I never heard about them from anyone that I knew personally. I had the opportunity to get more information about spirit animals. I’ve just started to do some research, but so far, I have to tell you all, I’m fascinated with the things I’m learning. Over the last ten years, since my coaching training, I’ve gotten much more aware and in tune with my body and myself on a deeper level. Aware of things around me and taking time the effort to appreciate all my senses – and to appreciate nature. That’s just one reason learning and understanding more about spirit animals seemed interesting to me. And I thought it would be enjoyable to share this journey with all of you. On this show, my friend Paul Bagge is with me to share a great introduction to spirit animals, animal totems, shadow totems. animal medicine and much more. This will help us get some foundational information and background and next week we’ll start looking at one or maybe two specific animals each month.

Body image is something that many people and especially women struggle with throughout their lives. From a young age, our mothers and grandmothers may nag us about our weight and tell us that we should be skinny. We need to be skinny and that’s driven home as we get closer to the teen years. Extra weight in often seen as a short-coming or a weakness and we’re told to lose the weight and stay thin. There are many advertisements for diets, and diet foods on TV, on the internet, and on social media. Is it any wonder that we also find ourselves being stressed with our daily lives?

Questions About Self-Love
November 20, 2020 • 55 MIN
Journaling is something that I always recommend, especially when we need to work through something or need to figure out how we feel about a situation. It is also very helpful when we’re not sure what we think about something. Is there ever a time when you’re trying to make a decision and you’re going back and forth and just can’t figure it out? Journaling is a great way to think of all the options and look at the possibilities and the pros and cons and go back and review them and make that decision. On this show, I’m going to pose a series of ideas and questions that all relate to ourselves and our lives. They ultimately relate to how we feel about ourselves and how we treat ourselves.

My guest Ullis Karlsson and I will have an interesting and unusual conversation to give you some things to think about – to make you aware of some of the first steps to being able to have an authentic… peaceful… juicy… and balanced life. Neither of our lives started out that way and Ullis is going to let you know just how polar opposite her life was just about 12 years ago. And, how far she’s come, through hard work, study and research. She wrote a very transparent and vulnerable book about that titled 2:47 The Journey Home to My Heart. We’ll talk about that and also about her newest book. This content is adult in nature and not for audiences under 18 or people offended by certain language.

Invisible Disabilities and Aortic Hope
September 25, 2020 • 59 MIN
This week is a very special but also very emotional and trying week for me personally. So, I decided to bring a couple of sister warriors on the show with me and it is going to be very therapeutic for me and very educational for you. Five years ago, on September 23 2015, I had life-saving and life-changing surgery for an aortic dissection and aortic aneurysm. At the time it was diagnosed I had no clue what that meant, five years and four surgeries later, I have a much better idea, but I’m still learning something each day. But the biggest thing I know is that I’m very thankful to the doctors and nurses at the University of Virginia Health Services that brought me through. And that was no small challenge. Statistically only about 3% of people with this condition survive and my odds were worse because of my condition when I got to the ER. Two other women who had dissections are also on the call with me and they will share their stories and we’ll share information about the condition, what you should look out for, how to know if this is something you may need to be checked for, and we’ll also talk about invisible disabilities. That’s something that I didn’t understand at all until I had to live with one. Lots of interesting information and we’re going to be very open about what we’re living with and how it affects our lives. I’ll also share some resources below for more information. If the condition sounds familiar – I talk about it on the show occasionally, it’s the condition John Ritter and Alan Thicke died from unexpected. We hope to share information and clear up misunderstandings and misconceptions for you. If you have questions, please share them below, contact me or contact the Aortic Hope social media sites. We all want to help 🙂
Are Values Sexy with Heather Montgomery
September 18, 2020 • 59 MIN
What are values? What are your values? If I asked you to tell me what your values are, would you know? The Cambridge Dictionary defines values as: “the principles that help you to decide what is right and wrong, and how to act in various situations“. It seems that “values” have gotten the short end of the stick lately, so my guest, Heather Montgomery and I are going to have an open, honest and sometimes blunt conversation about values. Heather is the founder and CEO of the website PleazeMe.com. We’re also going to talk about the PleazeMe website, their core values, their mission, and how they are helping in the fight against child trafficking. When we get together, you never know what we might talk about and where the discussion may lead.

The Food Codes with Lana Nelson
June 14, 2019 • 59 MIN
The Food Codes with Lana Nelson on this Ready for Love Radio. This is a bit of an introduction and I have used many of these ideas over the years, beginning in 1989 and I still do. The difference in how I feel is amazing… “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Hippocrates. Words to live by, yet many people are dying by the food choices they make. Rather than making sensible choices, most people choose the next fad diet. Looking for the “easy button” most will not get the results they hope for. If anything, they get fatter and sicker with each passing day. “I’ve been fascinated with relationships from as far back as I can remember. Relationships with people, the environment, animals and one that many people never consider, food.”

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a thief. ED takes away physical and emotional intimacy. ED steals your confidence in the bedroom. ED robs you of your manhood. ED walks off with your self-esteem.
