Arielle Ford and Dr. Suzanne Phillips Discuss: "Turn Your Mate Into Your Soulmate," on Psych-Up Live

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 turning your mate into your soulmate.


Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/16/2016 -- Arielle Ford, Best-selling author, says "It's one thing to fall in love and get married. It is quite another thing to have a marriage you love. According to Arielle, getting to that space is the true purpose of "Turn Your Mate Into Your Soulmate." "It is possible. It takes initiative, commitment and a belief that embarking on this journey to a truer relationship is worth the effort." On this show, Arielle and Suzanne will discuss the steps that you can take to propel your relationships to the next level.

Arielle Ford, a pioneer of the conscious living movement who helped launch the careers of Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch and Jack Canfield, 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 for those times when it stops being " happily ever after."

According to Arielle, "We've all heard that relationships take work, commitment and occasional sleepless nights to strike a balance" Yet so many of us believe that with a real 'soulmate love,' it will somehow be different, effortless, deserved. We fully expect our rare, precious and unimaginable 'soulmate love' will conquer everything--And then reality settles in.

As Arielle describes, "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."

In her new book, "Turn Your Mate Into Your Soulmate," Arielle defines what a soulmate is and isn't. She dispels the myths of " the soulmate" to create an instant shift in perception about what is and isn't possible. Along the way, she offers practical tools, techniques and actionable steps for readers to move from "annoyed" to "enjoyed." 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.

Arielle is a leading personality in the personal growth and contemporary spirituality movement. For 25 years she has been living, teaching, and promoting consciousness through all forms of media. She is a relationship expert, speaker, blogger for the Huffington Post and the producer and host of Evolving Wisdom's Art of Love series. A gifted writer, she is author of 10 books. She has been called "The Cupid of Consciousness" and "The Fairy Godmother of Love" and "The Priestess of Love."
