Francesca's Quotable Insights:
Understanding The Opposite Sex
"Men and women want the same things, we just prioritize them differently. Find out what is most important to your partner. If you understand that his priorities are equal yet different to yours, you can compassionately negotiate for a win/win.
Overcoming the Fear of Commitment
"We've all been hurt and carry distrust. We fall in love and want to commit to the person who brings forth the best in us and fulfills the secret dream of love. You can ignite the Committed Lover in your partner, when you speak about the best in them. "
Becoming the Lover They Never Forget
"Remember that when we touch a body, we also touch a soul. We are touching their experiences in the past, and their hopes for the future. The BodySoul gives constant feedback. Listen to their breath, heat, cold, energy and emotion. Touch them with confidence compassion responding moment to moment to all that they are."
Cultural Diversity in Every Relationship
"Each person carries a unique inner landscape of culture, history, and traditions.This landscape has blind spots resulting in how we think it should be done. When you feel stuck in a "should" that binds, ask yourself, how would I look at this as if I were raised in another culture. . . theirs?"
Growing and Sustaining Love in a Relationship
"New relationships obsess on all the visual and sensual memories of what delights them in their partner. Old relationships often focus their thoughts on what is not working. Keep it fresh by choosing to recall, think about and visualize the memories of love. Each thought creates either The Book of Growing Love OR The Book Of Ending the Relationship. What book are you writing?"
How Sacred Sexuality Supports Recovery
"When we are abused, we have been objectified; yelled at, touched, handled, and made to witness in ways that broke trust, and disregarded the personal choice of our bodies, minds, emotions and spirits. We have been related to with the very opposite of the sacred. Sacred sexuality is slow, conscious, connective, honoring, and revering. It is a daily practice that heals. When touched from the sacred, we feel precious, and worthy of care."
