Why I Don’t Run from Valentine’s Day Anymore!

I met my soulmate, Mike, when I was forty-two. We were married one year later.

After twenty years of good guys, bad choices (meaning nice guys, but we were so NOT a match), I finally figured out how to manifest the relationship of my dreams.

Manifest? Yes, believe it or not. When I finally uncovered the formula to call him in, there he was. And I have many girlfriends who were witness to the magic. When I began seriously thinking about manifesting this relationship, my life was radiant on almost every level. I had a beautiful daughter, a very inspiring dream career, lots of amazing friends, fun and adventurous hobbies and a growing spiritual connection. My love life, on the other hand, had its share of ups and downs to say the least. It was by far my weakest link.

From the moment I became very clear about who I was as a person, and finally understood what the best fit for my potential life partner would be, the shift started to happen. Then when I combined all of this new awareness with an absolute unwillingness to settle anymore, everything began to change.
I professed to my closest girlfriends that I would meet Mr. Right on August 12, 2005. (And they just nodded knowing not to dampen my enthusiasm.) Mike decided to spare me the torture any longer and appeared in my life 8 days early on August 4th.  Funny thing is that we had lived around the corner from one another for 10 years, shopped in the same grocery store, Starbucks and never once met, until I was finally ready. You know the saying, “timing is everything.” In my case, timing and some simple steps that I began practicing daily until he appeared. (Until that day, Valentine’s Day was a time that I could not leave town fast enough.)

I am living proof that true love and soulmates do exist. From the time I finally got that message loud and clear, the path to a soulful relationship became easy. Prior to meeting Mike, I had chosen relationships that were fraught with frustration and discord, because I didn’t know any other way. But once my eyes were open, and I realized I was the one choosing all these round peg, square hole situations, I finally got that I also had the power to choose very differently. And so I did.

Since manifesting the right person, it has been effortless, because we both want the same kind of love and relationship. No more coercing, convincing, or longing. Thank you, God! This method does require that you don’t absorb any negative talk that says relationships are impossible and good partners are hard to find. If you do, that will most likely become your belief system and ultimately your truth.

In my new best selling book, Blast Off! The Surefire Success Plan To Launch Your Dreams Into Reality, I lay out the step-by-step plan to find your soulmate. Trust me. If I can do it, so can you. And if you are already married or in a relationship, the same steps apply to shift from feeling frustrated or empty to flowing in-sync with one another again.

Call me sentimental. Call me what you will. I believe we all have the capacity to love and be loved.

Happy almost Valentine’s Day to you all!
