I’ve made no secret about the fact that I’ve been married 3 times. I’m great at sealing the deal, and have always figured I’m lousy at the execution of the contract. Lately though, Ive worried that I’ve been Wookin’ Pa Nub in all the wrong places. In the interest of getting a fresh start, I even assembled a committee to vet anyone I considered dating to help me avoid my “type” again.
The Best Laid Plans
You know what they say about the best laid plans … my committee became unnecessary when I started something recently with a man from my past. He is the only man who has ever broken my heart. I’ve loved him since I was 20 years old, and we’ve been best friends forever even though our relationship didn’t work the first time around. He was the catalyst for my life of adventure, and the bar he set was one of the many reasons none of my marriages worked.
My family adores him and my daughter has known him since she was 6 weeks old. I’ve always believed that he’s my twin flame, which doesn’t necessarily mean we’re meant to be together as a couple, but that we will always be connected. In fact, I dreamed about him when I was only 14, 6 years before we met.
“Important encounters are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other.” ~ Paolo Coelho
I didn’t want to approach this situation with fear or apprehension in my heart, so I decided to take Diane Taylor’s Unlocking Love – The Short Course.
I got through the first module and said, “Aha! Obviously my root chakra is blocked.” I was surprised at my answers to the worksheet questions, and congratulated myself on being honest and digging deep. I was briefly relieved that I understood the problem, and had the tools to fix it.
I say briefly, because as soon as I did the second module I realized that I still had work to do…
As I continued through the rest of the course modules I discovered that I have several issues that need to be resolved so that I can feel confident, authentic, and lovable. Answering the questions in the worksheets helped immensely because it made me face things I had been avoiding. Now I’m going back to the beginning to follow all the suggestions that will help remove the blocks, most of which I have placed there myself. I feel optimistic!
The course is made up of 6 short videos each with an accompanying worksheet. Diane’s warmth and humor shines through the videos, and the worksheets are brilliant in their simplicity. Answer the questions honestly and you will find clarity. You can complete the course in a day if you’re of a mind to, but that is really only the beginning. Once you complete the worksheets and face your blocks, you are also provided with the healing techniques to remove them and open yourself up for the love you desire and deserve!
I feel ready to embrace this relationship, in whatever form it takes, bravely, honestly and with an open heart.
