Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
Today’s guest blogger, Brooke, who happens to be someone I am helping to navigate the waters of love and dating, did not like Valentine’s Day until she had a change of heart. Read her inspiring story of going from “depressing lows” and “frustration” to “a blissful feeling of peace, self-love and happiness.” I hope you enjoy this as much as I have!

Finding The Perfect Valentine
Being single and without a significant other by early February, can be very depressing. By Martin Luther King day, the lovey-dovey ads for jewelry start popping up and the drug stores fill with red and pink decorated everything even though all you wanted was a package of plain M&M’s, hold the hearts please! The pressure not to be alone on February 14th can be, well, disheartening, but, I decided to change my outlook.
2014 was one of the most difficult years in my close to 46 on this earth, and trust me, in 4 decades I’ve survived divorce (my parents and my own), job loss (twice in a span of 4 years) and heartbreak (this last one was a doozy). As a single mom of two teens, it’s hard to find romance with Mr. Right- so I continually found my way back to Mr. Absolutely WRONG! Strangely enough, it was Mr. Wrong who, last year, introduced me to Ms. Right On! Tamara Green. We instantly bonded and the healing began.
It was extremely challenging, but last April I finally left Mr. Wrong for good. I thought that by leaving him everything would fall into place and that I’d meet the love of my life and find a great job- you know, that whole “one door closes” philosophy. So when doors weren’t immediately flinging open, frustration ensued.
Tamara was there for me, telling me to relax, to enjoy dating and to keep things light. I was assigning myself so much pressure to meet someone that it had become a roller coaster ride of major highs and depressing lows until I finally gave up and resigned my online dating accounts. I needed a new outlook, and once again, my phone rang displaying a very welcome caller ID- Tamara Green.
When Tamara told me about her Energy Healing for Self Empowerment course, I knew that a door was opening that I needed to walk through. I was blessed enough to join a group of positive men and women, of varying ages, whose goal was growth through positivity, non-judgment and self-love. The energy in the room was warm, organic and electric.
Tamara took us through body tapping, physical and experiential exercises that invigorated me to the core. In one process, we bid our dark pasts and fears farewell and greeted our new bright futures. I was joyous as we embraced the happiness ahead, and, at that point, I truly knew that I would find love, absolutely. I didn’t focus on the details of how, who, what or where. Instead, Tamara encouraged me to envision the relationship of my dreams as if I were living it now and in every moment moving forward. She helped me to manifest my desires by living as if I’d already achieved them- the result, a blissful feeling of peace, self-love and happiness.
This Valentine’s week I’m thinking differently. Instead of feeling lost without a valentine, I’m celebrating the love within and surrounding me. It feels wonderful knowing that love will always be in my future. As someone very wise once said, “love conquers all.”
To Tamara, my Energy Healing classmates, Mr. Right and even to you,
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!
