The 2010 Interview
It was an honor and a joy to speak with Alanis Morissette back in August about her recent transitions into marriage and pregnancy.
Consistent with her musical style, Alanis spoke with honesty and courage about the challenges she encountered during her engagement.
I’m deeply grateful for her willingness to help break the taboo that the engagement is supposed to be only a happy time and talk about her commitment to, in her words, “barrel through the fear thoughts” so that she could evolve toward love. I’m sure you will derive immense comfort and inspiration from her story.

Learn from Alanis’ Lyrics about Relationship Transitions
Over the next three weeks I’ll be writing a series of “Alanis-inspired” posts. The seven topics will be on where one of Alanis’ songs intersects with the seven lessons of my Conscious Weddings E-Course: From Anxiety to Serenity.
For example, Lesson 2 of the E-Course is called “Why Is My Partner Driving Me Crazy?” or Understanding Projection, and her song will be Madness.
In other words, I’ll be writing about how each of the seven songs elucidates a key point of the wedding transition.
Here’s one of my favorite quotes from the interview (which dovetails beautifully with Lesson 4: What If These Feelings Mean I’m Making a Mistake? or Accepting Uncertainty):
Thank you, Alanis, for your willingness to be honest and vulnerable, for your commitment to your own healing, and the healing of the planet. Let us all barrel through the fear and evolve in love.
Are you anxiously engaged and feeling scared about getting married?
The Conscious Weddings E-Course is the anti-anxiety medication for your soul.
It’s an instant download of comfort, inspiration, and practical tools for managing your anxiety and realizing your clarity and love.
But you don’t have to take my word for it. Here’s what Alanis Morissette said:

It includes seven downloadable lessons of exclusive videos, MP3 interviews, articles, checklists, and exercises.
