Finding love is a feat unto itself, but finding love during the time of Covid 19 adds a special brand of insanity, doesn’t it?
People want and need love and want the companionship of another human being. Isolation leads to loneliness, to depression, to societal withdrawal and to bad habits. We often take on things which are unhealthy for us when we don’t have a companion, or stop doing things we once loved. Exercise has been replaced with an exercise in futility.
Life has been put on pause, in essence. The beautiful things we used to take for granted are now replaced in part by fear-fear of exposure and contracting the virus. Our “devil may care” approach to life has been replaced by cautiousness.
But, what if you took a leap of faith, imagined yourself finding love and actually meeting that person who you have imagined/visualized and manifested coming to you? What IF you learned how to attract that human-to draw him or her to you and they came into your sphere? What IF true love was really possible?
My divorce was final in 2017. For 1.5 years I was swimming through the mud of sadness and loss and finally faced my fears. Fear of being alone, fear of confronting the demons of my past-my co-dependence, my needing to be in control, my needing to use my masculine energy and my need to always be in a relationship because that meant that I was lovable. Without someone else loving me, I was nothing. Worthless. Invisible. And that is simply not the case.
I did the work. It was excruciating-facing the demons of loneliness. But it got me to a place where I loved myself and realized that settling for someone who wasn’t made for me just simply wouldn’t work.
I dated. Whoa, did I date. So many guys that it makes me dizzy just thinking about them, and even worse, my even considering that I SHOULD settle, because I am over 60 and well, love simply would be impossible to find at this age. But, I knew deep down that this person was also looking for me-just as hard as I was looking for him. I knew what he sounded like, smelled like, what he felt like and even how it would feel to be with him.
I gave myself grace. I had to believe, even in the time of Covid 19 that this person was working just as hard as I was to align with me. To meet. To somehow connect. I KNEW that what I taught my clients was the path that I also needed to follow. And I did.
And we met.
I am hopeful. I am trusting, I am open to what is ahead of me, not fully understanding how or why, but believing it is finally my time and HIS time, too. And believing that there is indeed love if you believe and hold onto hope. And that this person was also seeking the same vibration as I was for him. And from this day forward trust in the process and where it will take us.
