February 13, and the world’s retail marketing machines are well into into the annual frenzy of selling Valentine’s Day. Millions of £$€ and just about any other currency will be spent. Hearts will be given, eaten (in the form of sweets!) and, of course, also broken.
What started as a fertility festival in Roman times has become a consumer spending spree for people, all desiring to show their love for that ‘special’ one in their life. There is nothing wrong in having love in your life. There is nothing wrong with demonstrating your love, in whatever way you choose to. It all depends on your motivation for wanting to do either.
In my seminars on Emotional Intelligence, I share with people how to find true love. Many have found it soon after, some even found their true loved one on the seminar! (see the video testimonial where my friend Elinor did just that – you can see it in her face!)
What all of them learned is that low level feelings/emotions – such as loneliness, feeling incomplete without a special love, jealousy, desire, longing, fear of being hurt, and a whole load more – only succeed in keeping it away from you. When you make a decision to change your feelings to higher ones of courage, love and peace with where you are now, people actually feel more attracted to be with you. Paradoxically, being okay and in love with where you are attracts that special someone into your life – as Rachel discovered recently:
What you sow, you reap.
Give love with desperate thoughts of it being returned, and all you will do is put blocks in the way to it being returned to you.
Give love with an open heart with no thoughts of it being returned, and it will come to you in abundance.
My message is simple: treat your Valentine with no thoughts of love being returned to you. You just might enjoy Valentine’s Day more than you’ve ever done!
If you want to learn what Rachel and Elinor did on my course, then the next one is in May. Come and find your true love.
Go on, have the courage to love and be loved
