How Being Single on Valentine’s Helped Me Achieve My Dreams

Here’s a personal Valentine’s day story that I shared last year.  I am reposting it for this Valentine’s Day since so many enjoyed my story:

Valentine's dayWith Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought I would share a
personal story about my life when I was single for a long
time. I remember that I even dreaded the arrival of
Valentine’s Day. Year after year, it was the same old story.
I would spend Valentine’s by myself, and would, more often
than not, indulge in sad feelings.

At that time, I had no idea how struggling with being single
would one day help me achieve my life’s dreams.

One day, I called a dear friend of mine, who is amazingly
wise, and confided to him that I was really tired of being
single.  The first thing he told me was to not waste time
and to start immediately to pursue my life’s purpose, and
the right man would surely come my way.  He went on to tell
me that once I did as he suggested, my life would positively
change for the better.  “Enjoy your single days joyfully now
while they last” he added.  He advised me to think of this
new approach to life as an “experiment.”

The moment he told me that, it really made an impression on
me. I am not sure why but deep down a little voice told me
that his words of wisdom were right on.  I made a decision
to seriously contemplate what my life’s mission was. And, I
committed to living every day with joy and gratitude for my

Joy Is An Ally That Will Help You Manifest What You Desire

Later I was to discover that joy is a powerful emotion.  It
has a high vibration and will help you manifest what you
deeply desire because its vibratory level is closest to the
level of creation.

I have to tell you that I even made a pact with Spirit,
Universal Intelligence.  I promised that I would deeply
enjoy being single and that when I did find my dream
partner, I would commit to always supporting him in every
way I could to help him live his life’s purpose.  I felt
really good about this “deal” that I made.

The “experiment” went very well.  Friends and family asked me if
something had changed in my life.  One friend even asked me
if I was in love.  My energy had positively increased, and I
did feel in love—in love with life that is.

During that time when I was single, I spent quiet time
focusing on my life’s purpose, on what I wanted to
accomplish before I left this mysterious world. Having time
to myself helped me to discover my new life’s work. I soon
realized that I wanted to stop working for companies, and
that I wanted to create my own business to help people
become successful using ancient wisdom.

My Single Days Were Over When I Increased My Energy &
Followed My Purpose

I became really excited about realizing my life’s purpose,
and I started to focus more and more on my future business.
Long story short, my business goal led me to attend an
Internet marketing conference.  It was there that I finally
met the love of my life that I had so longed for.  My wise
friend had been right.  I had found the right man once I
focused on following my life’s mission.

As I look back, it has become clear to me.  I found my
beloved partner when I was already happy with my life and
focused on achieving my life’s vision-my purpose.  I had
learned the “lessons” that I needed to learn.
Interestingly, my beloved also had made a decision to pursue
his purpose in life, and that is what led him to attend the
very same conference that I attended.

Ancient wisdom teaches that a man not living his vision is
living death. As we focus on a higher purpose, we become
whole and the universe will absolutely support our path
every step of the way. It is a universal law.  We become
empowered and can more easily release those heavy beliefs
that drain our energy. We acquire the power to live a
magical life.

Emotions, such as joy and gratitude, are powerful forces.
They will increase your energy and will help you manifest.
In contrast, heavy emotions, such as fear and worry, drain
personal energy and keep you stuck.  Have you ever
efficiently achieved a goal or solved any problem while
engulfed in emotional trauma?

Now I want to share tips for increasing your energy,
emotionally as well as physically. To create what you deeply
desire, such as finding the love of your life, requires
personal energy.  Change your energy, and change your life.

10 Empowerment Tips To Increase Your Energy and

Change Your Life

1.    Love yourself.  How you feel about yourself will
determine what you attract into your life. Forgive your self
now, accept your self, and become free to create your ideal
life.  If you haven’t attracted the beloved that you desire,
ask yourself if you truly love yourself. It will be
difficult to find the right partner to love you, if you can
not love yourself.

2.    Follow your purpose.  As an Apache shaman, once said “A
man not living his purpose is living death.”  As you follow
your life’s purpose, you become whole and are in an
advantageous position to achieve your personal goals. You
have access to a higher power that formerly was not within
your reach.

3.    When you find yourself feeling low, do empowering things
to increase your energy such as spending time alone in
nature.  Nature has a high vibration and is a powerful ally.

4.    When you find yourself feeling low, release what’s
holding you down.  Heavy emotions that drain your energy,
such as fear and worry, are likely to be the first culprits
you need to release.  To the extent that you are held down
by old beliefs, patterns and wounds, you are not free to let
go of the past and create your future.

5.    Make a full commitment to take action to get what you
want in your life. Do whatever it takes to keep your energy
up and be impeccable about your intent.  Read the February
t to learn more about the power of intent and
realizing your dreams.

6.    Write in a journal how you want your life to be like
today.  Be the script writer for the movie you want to
create. Empower your goals with envisioning and other
success techniques. Learn shamanic empowerment practices
that teach success tools together with wisdom.

7.    Do something for yourself that you’ve never done-
something that you would really enjoy.  When you break one
pattern or a routine, it can help you to dislodge other
patterns that keep you stuck in the past.

8.    Treat yourself to special chocolate with at least 80%
cocoa. Pure raw cocoa lifts the mood and increases energy
due to the abundant presence of phenylethylamine aka PEA
(known as the “love molecule”) and anandamide (called the
“bliss chemical”).

9.    Treat a friend and yourself to something really out of
the ordinary-an energy enhancing food that is “supercharged”
with PEA-the same compound found in chocolate that
stimulates pleasurable effects on mood.  E3Live BrainON
contains approximately 50 times more PEA than chocolate.

10.     Relax about your goal. Every morning give thanks.
Gratitude is a powerful ally in the universe. This force
will not only help you achieve your dreams, it will keep you
from falling into the dark realm of fear and unhappiness.
The moment you feel gratitude, you open your heart and are
on the track of power.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
