The podcast, which is now available for free on iTunes and Google Play, features interviews with a number of spiritual couples, including Courtney and her husband Sam, who are both spiritual coaches and counsellors.
In an interview on the podcast, Sam tells the podcast’s hosts that he started dating Courtney after she began counselling him about his relationship with his girlfriend.
“I started dating her at the same time that I started dating my girlfriend,” he says.
“When I was first dating her, she was a really beautiful person.
I didn’t really like her, I didn and I don’t. “
She was like, ‘Oh, I love you, I’m not that person, I really like you, you’re really cute’.
I didn’t really like her, I didn and I don’t.
So it’s not like we’re not like each other.””
But then, as I got more into dating, I was more like, oh yeah, she really likes me, I have a lot of great things in common, I am a good friend, she has a really nice family, she lives with me.
So it’s not like we’re not like each other.”
And then after we started dating, she started really falling apart with my girlfriend and I was not like, that’s the way I am.
I’m a lot more introverted, I don, I wouldn’t say that I am the kind of person that I would normally be attracted to, but then she started falling apart.
“In the podcast episode, Courtney and husband Sam also discuss the importance of being present in one’s relationship, and the importance in forming a strong bond with one’s partner, in the same way as the therapist John Luths, a spiritual counsellors, counsellress, and author, would teach couples.
Sam then shares that he and his wife were both diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, and his mother died before he was even born. “
There’s this myth that we should be sharing the journey, but we should really be having our own journey,” Courtney explains.
Sam then shares that he and his wife were both diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, and his mother died before he was even born.
“We were both born with diabetes and I have kind of had to fight my way through diabetes for a long time, but she was diagnosed with type 2 and it was devastating,” he said.
And that was really tough. “
My mom was diagnosed at the end of the 20s, I remember she had Type 2 at a young age.
And that was really tough.
My mother was diagnosed around that time, my dad was diagnosed about the same. “
When I lost her, the family that I grew up with in my family were kind of really broken.
My mother was diagnosed around that time, my dad was diagnosed about the same.
There’s so many things I could have been facing that were a lot worse, but I just didn’t know how to deal with it.
I didn to it.
I think the journey with the podcast is about being open and honest with yourself, and letting others in on the journey of your life and how you deal with these things, and being in that place of understanding, and sharing your own journey.”
