Intimacy conjures ideas of a private cozy atmosphere and is defined as an affinity for; a rapport,affection and confidence in an interaction. Empathy, understanding, and compassion are at the heart of intimacy. Researchers are beginning of understand the relationship of depression among people due to the absence of intimacy in their lives. The need to feel part of a bonded community is universal; a desire for “ being at home” emotionally. This is reflected in a common Southern congenial expression, “Make yourself at home”.
Current expectations in relationships are conditioned by previous experiences. Often we are expecting something in a relationship and not realizing this until we are not getting it. Relationships can be sabotaged by hidden expectations and lingering disappointments. Emotional memory exists outside of time. We must be aware of our own expectations (and how they are affected by our history) for there to be hope of developing intimate relationships Distrust is a feeling that someone or something is not honest and cannot be trusted and is regarded with suspicion thereby eliminating confidence in the success of new circumstances.
Mistrust is a general sense of unease toward someone or something not necessarily based on experience but on instinctive. Mistrust can evoke “Mind Reading” which is often related to a past disappointing relationship experience. We tend to expect what we previously had the opportunity to learn; we make assumptions based on our history. Then an action in the present, that is similar to a previous experience, triggers an intense negative explosive emotional reaction.
It is imperative to learn how to change the hidden expectations that work to distort a relationship, because we transfer hidden expectations from our history to present day.
Today on HELP! Relationships 102, we begin our series on intimacy. Our humanity is driven by it and yet we can be terrified of it at the same time..and for good cause.
Today we explore what GOD had in mind when He wired us for intimacy, and why!
Join us as we address this unaddressed issue!

Having an intimate relationship with God has become such a catch phrase amongst Christians, but what does it really mean?
Christians can have a thriving business, school or ministry without a thriving relationship with God, but only temporarily. Anyone can "fake it 'till you make it," but to go the distance, you need a constant devotional life and continual closeness to God.
Listen in as we discuss action items for creating a personal intimacy with God.

Sexual Intimacy and how it effects our bodies, minds, and souls is "A subject that doesn’t come up in normal conversation" according to our guest, Arlene Kahat. However it is a topic of great importance in our lives and our relationships.
Do you know what happens energetically when you have sex with a person? In our conversation on My Spirit Travels, you will learn about you take on the energy, and sometimes personality patterns of the person that you are intimate with. This is not just talk, it is backed by scientific facts.
In the book The Honeymoon Effect by Bruce Lipton, this scientist gives us insight and knowledge of how sexual relations with others can and does impact us on every level of our being. When you have sexual relations, you exchange your energy with another person's energy. You might be kind, and loving and peaceful and that's beautiful energy you love to share...however, what about your partner? Have you chosen someone who has similar vibrational energy? Or maybe they are angry, or bitter, or taking into their physical body something you don't want to experience in yours.

In the past we have discussed how critical mindfulness is to your day-to-day well-being. All illness is affiliated with a deficiency of balance. Balance is the result of mindfulness. Mindfulness is the ability to be aware of ones environment, experiences, thoughts and feelings. Mindfulness is a process for many of us particularly in this fast paced, technology-driven and noise cluttered world that often leaves us not whole and unprepared to navigate our day to day. On this episode we will explore how to practice meditation and build a community of support to restore balance to your life and prevent the effects of "crazy making behavior".
Do you spend enough quiet time with God? On this show, we will examine our true intimacy with God. We have time to work, pick the kids up from school, take vacations, visit family and friends, etc. But how much time do we actually spend with God alone? Join us and let's talk about it.
