For the past 15+ years, I have soaked up the wisdom and spiritual insight of Marianne Williamson. The first book I read of hers was A Return To Love: Reflections of a Course in Miracles and it forever altered my life. It was pivotal in helping me get on the path back to God. I’ve made reference to it many times here on SOS and if you still have not read it I encourage you to buy yourself a copy today!
Yesterday, I stumbled across the above video from the Super Soul Sessions and had to share it with you. Even after all her years of teaching, Marianne still gives aha, eye-opening insight on spiritual healing and growth. I’ve been dealing with challenging relationships lately and love how God leads you to the exact message you need.
I realize the holiday season is crazy and you may not have much free time, but please take a moment to watch if you crave some soul food. I guarantee it will fill you up!
I seriously cannot believe 2011 is nearly over, but I’m so excited and completely giddy with the Holiday Spirit! How about you?
Speaking of giddy- after 8 years of marriage, I still get giddy when my hubby walks in the room! So, in this weeks webisode I give my newly engaged girlfriend, Julianna, a few simple tips that I have found to make my marriage work! Now obviously- there is SO much more to it, but hey- we’re not taping an hour, full- length talk show here…
I have to share some of the fabulous and enlightening comments we’ve received on Facebook and YouTube:
Bonnielee Cuevas says, “Marriage is a bundle of amazing things. One must take the time to nurture, listen, love, and remember it was for better or for worse, for richer or poorer. As long as there is an abundance of communication and God in your marriage it will last a lifetime. After 10 years of marriage I am still in love with my husband and could ask for nothing more”.
Marcella Mathot-Dewis shared, “I have been married for 20 years. I have a husband who I believe always has my best interests at heart. when he has upset me, I give him the benefit of the doubt… because he is a good, unselfish man and I trust him. This works both ways. When the storms come (and they will come) It is important to know Gods GRACE. We both understand GODS GRACE. We understand it and apply it. Gods grace makes us right with God, but it is the most powerful tool in making us right with each other”.
Jon Welch said, “You have to be willing to give more than you take, the little things matter most, and never let your battles become a war! ( nothing is that bad ) 20 years in September 2012. She completes me and still makes me want to be a better man”!
Anna Rachocki shared, “Something we were told before we got married was “to always be competing for sacrifices.” Everyone always talks about compromise, but take it one step further! Someone also told us that when they asked a couple celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary what their secret was, the husband replied, “Never fall out of love at the same time.” A relationship should always be a “give and take” and when one person is weak, the other is strong”.
A few great comments from SOS YouTube subscribers:
“Great advice! And congratulations Julianna. It’s good to hear this as a beginner and as someone that has been married many years. We do NOT want to lose sight of these principles”.
“Being married 10 year and 3 kids later , communication is a big factor like you said I am happy to say I am happy and bless with a wonderful man that I love more than ever!”
Please tell me your thoughts! This was the first “talk show” style webisode and I would love your feedback. So far, we’ve received an amazing response! Remember SOS is all about EMPOWERMENT in every area of your life- not just fashion, makeup and accessorizing. But don’t worry, we have fantastic beauty & style webisodes slated to tape this month so you can get your “fabulous fix”!
It’s all about giving you the tools to be YOUR MOST FABULOUS YOU!
