Read more

Inspired by the staggering statistic that over half of American women are living without a spouse for the first time in history, Something Better is host Amy Loftus’ exploration of harnessing the behaviors aligned with inner masculine and feminine energies that could be the reason women today to get what they want in the workplace, at the expense of romantic fulfillment.

Are you in your late thirties, or early forties and 100% confident addressing men at your high pressure job but terrified of making eye contact and smiling at a handsome man in an elevator?
Do you have your own home, your own bank account, frozen eggs, a prosperous job with amazing benefits, and zero romantic prospects?

Are you longing for your husband to be more assertive but telling him how to drive and complaining that he’s like an extra kid?

Are you a single woman and secretly mad at all men?

Are you a woman in a marriage that feels dead, and can’t find the spark you once had?

Did the women’s movement offer us professional direction at the expense of our personal lives?
What if I showed you how much power you have on the inside? What if I told you that you can turn all of your most frustrating situations around completely with the use of gifts and tools you already have, built in?

Rank #6: #3 The Three Cs with Dr. Pat Allen

Podcast cover
Read more
Dr. Pat Allen says her book "Getting to I Do" made the bestseller list because women bought it twice- it made them so mad they threw it out the first time and had to go back and buy it again. Amy's first interviewed guest on Something Better, Dr. Pat Allen, has devoted 42 years to helping men and women learn to express their wants and needs with integrity and honesty, and to recognize and avoid the damaging ploys of intimidation and seduction. Pat has been a frequent guest on dozens of TV shows. Oprah has said that many of her friends won’t make a move without Dr. Pat Allen’s guidance.”

Pat has said "the women’s movement brought us independence, but it did not bring us love" and "some of the things I teach about male/female relationships have often been called politically incorrect….but they are scientifically accurate. And they work."

Amy hosts another edition of Girlfriend Talk with her close friend Christy. Together they address (through a lot of laughter) old patterns, how they changed, and the burning question Amy regularly gets from listeners: DO I CONTACT HIM?? Spoiler alert, NO. But then what??? Listen to this, ladies, and you'll know. Spouses too! It doesn't end with marriage. Note to listeners: Trista Sutter, the Bachelorette Amy referred to at the end of the episode to make a point about self-love, is indeed still married to her chosen bachelor, Ryan. They have two kids and from the pictures, Christy and Amy think it's obvious that they are keeping it hot.

Rank #10: OK2BKRZ: Yin (Feminine) and Yang (Masculine) Behaviors

Podcast cover
Read more
My elementary school-age nieces visited my studio last summer and weighed in briefly on their experience of their feminine energy- I thought it may inspire.

In this episode I go into my experience opening up to spiritual solutions as I entered a constant conversation with the Universe, (or Source as you understand it, whatever you call it; Jesus, Buddha, God, Hashem....) I believe it communicates back! I highly recommend you try it. As you nurture your awareness and consciousness around masculine and feminine energies, I offered some suggestions on developing behaviors.

Rank #11: Are You Cut Out For a Casual Thing?

Podcast cover
Read more
I have been hearing from women since the first season of SB and the one constant among issues they have shared with me is a fear of facing the truth about being cut out for a casual thing. Admitting that you are not means raising your standards and closing the door on crumbs in order to make room for something better. Often this comes in the form of averting attention from “situationships” so you can graduate to a real relationship. If your deepest desire is a committed relationship, and the Interstate of your life still has a side road to the culdesac of texting with someone who cannot step up and define the experience and commit to an exclusive relationship, then it’s time to raise your standards, speak up, and step away from the situationship into relationship. This episode includes a game-ending script for rationally communicating your desires, so you can leave your comfort zone of fantasy and enter the dream of real fulfillment. Email me and let me know your thoughts and feelings on this episode!

Rank #15: Empaths and Energy Vampires

Podcast cover
Read more
Have you ever entered a relationship with someone and questioned their integrity but felt convinced that you will be the one to receive the best of them, despite the questionable motives and behaviors that they have displayed? Have you ever left an encounter with a person and felt like you could fall fast asleep? Have you ever found yourself flooded with surprising emotions at certain moments, and at others, unable to sense what you, yourself are feeling inside?

You may be an empath.

It's imperative to understand yourself better if you are, because you'll require specific tools for self care, and you'll need to become aware that you're a magnet for people who stubbornly maintain difficult personality traits.

In this week's podcast, I share my experience of two radically informative books on the topic, which are both easy to purchase on the books page of this website: The Empath's Survival Guide by Dr. Judith Orloff, and Dodging Energy Vampires by Dr. Christiane Northrup.

Rank #16: How Do I Spot a Masculine Man?

Podcast cover
Read more
I received this question from a listener: "As my friends and I date the choppy online dating waters, we debate how to spot a masculine man and differentiate healthy from toxic masculinity, and how to differentiate a masculine from a feminine man. How would you describe the qualities of each of these types of men? What are the differences between them and what are the behaviors that signal them? How can we women who want to come from our feminine respond to these different behaviors?"
So I answered it!
I love hearing from you. Thank you for this helpful question.
