The focus of this post is about romantic relationships. This past week has been filled with client questions about romantic relationships and seeing that yesterday I celebrated my 23rd wedding anniversary I thought I would shed some light on the subject.
When will I meet someone? This question comes up more often than you may think during a session. The truth is there is no simple straightforward answer to this question. The encounter has so many variables. It takes both souls to be in the right place at the right time and under the right circumstances for the encounter to happen. On the flip side of that, if both souls are heading in the same direction it is easy to have the foresight about the encounter. Divine timing is a real thing and if you try to rush it you will most certainly encounter some delays or obstacles which may lead to frustration. As an example let's look at how I met my husband. I was at work in the role of a dietary manager at a senior facility. It was an ordinary day under ordinary circumstances with my hairnet on working away. My coffee machine broke so I called the repair company and the repair man came to fix it. We had a brief chat and on his way he went. Just coming out of a previous relationship dating wasn't even on my radar but the next day the repair man called and asked me out. Lesson: just live in the present without fixating on the future and it becomes so much easier.
Will this be a good relationship? This question usually comes up when someone meets and individual and they start dating and they want to know about investing more time in the relationship. The clue is if you are even asking that question there is some underlying doubt that is present that you are ignoring. You have an internal guidance system that has been in place and it is easily accessed through gut feelings. You know when you get a pit in your stomach you should really rethink what you are doing. If you get butterflies it is usually a sign that you are on the right track. Again, looking at my experience of when I met my husband as an example. We went on our first date and at the end of the night I clearly remember saying to myself "oh, that is the man I'm supposed to marry". Lesson: remain open to all possibilities. You never know when an opportunity will come knocking.
