7. Nutritional Supplements can support you with a greater health and
physical energy to support your personal relationship and intimacy. Sexual
energy nutrients include the B vitamins, most minerals, the amino acids and
essential fatty acids; these support healthy tissues and body function. All
of these can be derived from a good diet or enhanced with the right
supplement program. Additional antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E,
selenium, and the carotenes protect the tissues and vessels and support
circulation, so important to staying young and healthy.
8. Many HERBS are useful to support love. Fragrant herbs like lavender and
rose petals are nice. Wonderful aromatherapy and massage oils are available
in most natural food and specialty stores. These can enhance all levels of
the love connection. Intake of herbs such as ginseng supports the physical,
mental, and sexual energies; Siberian ginseng is great to help combat
stress. Dong quai supports the female energy, and damiana is believed to
arouse the senses. Have fun and experiment safely.
9. Use the spring months to CLARIFY YOUR GOALS in your relationship. Keep a
journal to create the reflection and clarity that will serve your seasonal
enlightenment. Where and how are you now? Where do you wish to be in a
couple months? What will it take for you to move in that direction? Change
can be difficult, yet it doesn’t really have to be if you will allow the
inspiration and motivation to arise from within and fill your cells and
body, your brain and heart. Just make a start, take ca few steps, and see
new spaces opening up for your enlightenment! This means shedding light on
dark places within us and seeing them clearly.
10. Above all, give yourself the time to truly experience Nature and your
close friendships. Begin with yourself; knowing and loving oneself is a
necessity to being able to fully love another. There are many therapists who
can help along this avenue and many books like Self Matters by Dr. Phil
McGraw. The time and energy you invest in your own healing will carry into
your relationships as well. Also, take some time to be outdoors and play.
Enjoy the Spring winds and breezes. Rekindling your Earth connection has
benefits that last beyond this season, continuing to enrich the whole of
your life. This can happen, even in a city. And remember to smell the
