Courtney Walsh has been called a social media rockstar.  

She is an author of metaphysical humor, an internationally renowned speaker and the writer of the “Dear Human” viral media meme that has now been shared with over 20 million people including on Deepak Chopra’s and Elizabeth Gilbert’s pages as well as retweeted by Khloe Kardashian and radio personality Delilah.

Guiding Principle, Quote or Mantra

It is a partnership of energies. And it’s a partnership of frequencies. A partnership of our patterns of pain and our desires. And how those things all dance and show up together.

When You Tripped Up

When Courtney was younger she would bottle her emotions up in her relationships and then just walk away. She was not asking for what she wanted or needed because she didn’t think she could have it.

The trip up was not being true to herself.

She is excited to have now recognized this pattern so she can shift out of it.

The “DUH” moment that changed your partnerships forever

Courtney’s “DUH” was recognizing the healing power of speaking her mind even thought it can be incredibly awkward sometimes.

When she partners with herself and has her own back and is clear about her needs everything works better.

Proudest moment in partnership

Courtney’s shares with us about her relationship with her Mom. 

She now has the Mom she always wanted as a child and as a teen and as a young woman, but it took 40 years to get there.

The proudest moment was a reunion luncheon the two of them had where they realized they were no longer at odds with each other. Now they are each other’s cheerleaders and supporters.

Current Partnership that Has You Excited

Courtney’s partnership between her and her writing is very exciting. It never lets her down.

What is the best partnership / relationship advice you have ever received?

It’s OK to walk away from a scenario that isn’t feeling good more than it’s feeling bad. 

Spirit has to be front and center in the relationship.
