Turn Your Mate Into Your Soulmate
“Priestess of Love” Arielle Ford’s new book tells how to build a joy-filled life with your significant other
After joyous beginnings, many couples find their dreams of perfect love replaced by frustration, criticism, defensiveness and emotional distance. In her new book, “Turn Your Mate Into Your Soulmate,” bestselling author and “Priestess of Love” Arielle Ford reveals the recipe for reinventing relationships that are healthy, loving and fulfilling.
A pioneer of the conscious living movement who helped launch the careers of Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch and Jack Canfield, Arielle is the author of the international bestseller “THE SOULMATE SECRET” (2011, HarperOne). In her new book, she moves beyond finding a soulmate to offer new wisdom and insight about one of the most important relationships that lift and fulfill the human spirit.
Coming in December 2015 from HarperOne, “Turn Your Mate Into Your Soulmate,” reveals the unrealistic expectations and fantasies many of us have about “happily ever after” – and charts a path for creating lasting love.
“We’ve all heard that relationships take work, commitment and occasional sleepless nights to strike a balance,” Arielle writes. “Yet so many of us believe that real ‘soulmate love’ will somehow be different, effortless, deserved. We fully expect our rare, precious and unimaginable ‘soulmate love’ will conquer everything. And then reality settles in.
“Sometimes it takes a year, or ten, or twenty, but at some point we find ourselves restless – or worse – angry, frustrated, disappointed and ready to give up. We begin to wonder whether it’s time to head for divorce court. Our day-to-day reality does not match our dream of what soulmate love should reflect. Suddenly, we perceive that our Prince Charming, our once shiny knight, has turned into a rusty, stubborn barrier to happiness and fulfillment.”
Clearly defining what a soulmate is and isn’t, Arielle dispels myths around the term to create an instant shift in perception about what’s possible. Along the way she offers practical tools, techniques and actionable steps for readers to move from “annoyed” to “enjoyed.” She explains:
* What love really is and what it is not
* Why we yearn to be connected to another person
* Our sacred contracts around love
* Why giving up perfectionism is the key to happiness
* How to ask for and receive what you most need from your partner
* The purpose and benefits of marriage
* Components of a healthy relationship
* Moving beyond ourselves to infuse our relationship with God/Spirit/Devotion
* Breathing new life into old love by kick-starting fun
* Why changing partners may not be the answer, and why re-envisioning the partner you have can e the path to happiness
Written with Arielle’s quintessential warmth, humor, and sense of wonder, “Turn Your Mate Into Your Soulmate” is filled with personal stories gleaned from over 106 interviews about love and marriage, as well as advice from experts including Harville Hendrix, John Gray, Neale Donald Walsh, Marianne Williamson and more.
