You Are So Lovable – Feel It

Last Monday my husband left a sweet note on my windshield while I was teaching a yoga class as he works nearby that site.  I’m not posting this to brag and be all, “Hey everyone, see how amazing my husband is blah blah blah.”  My real point here is to inspire you  – in my youth (which was everything up to 35) I never thought I could have love like this.  Actually I wasn’t even sure it existed.  But in my heart I knew that that kind of love is what I wanted and needed in order to get married to someone.  It had to be out there.

One day I just kind of woke up and realized that instead of focusing on all the evidence of me not being loved, having my heart broken, being disappointed, insulted, made fun of, stood up, etc. that I would instead to choose to focus my thoughts and energies on all the evidence and proof that I was loved and am lovable.  I recalled the times my family and schoolmates were caring and sweet to me.  I recalled when men were trying to express their love to me, but my eyes were closed to it.  I woke up to all the evidence of love in my life NOW.

All it takes is a shift to be in the loving space you want and here are some ways to do that now:

1)    Collect evidence of you loving and being loved in the past, and I don’t mean sexually, I mean words and actions of love.  Think of any family members, friends, peers, co-workers, children, babies and animals (even plants!) that have shown you love.  Love is everywhere.  Honestly, I talk lovingly to my car and she shows me love by doing what she’s supposed to do well and safely.

2)    See the proof of love around you, particularly if you’re looking for your soul mate, in other couples that have the kind of loving relationship you want.  As much as possible only watch media with the kind of love you truly want, as it will reinforce your knowing that you are deserving of that love.  Two of my personal favorites are Wally and the beginning of Up.

3)    Bask in the feelings of that kind of love.  As you become more accustomed to this feeling being the norm, the other stuff that isn’t what you want will just seem to go away at just the right time or it won’t draw your attention as much anymore.  Your feelings are your guide and you’re here on this planet to feel good!

What evidence of love in your past or present are you basking in?  I would love to read all about it in the comments below.

What’s Finding Love Got To Do With Impacting the World?

If someone had told me I would someday coach women who want to find their true love I would have laughed my heinie off!  I didn’t play with Barbies much growing up or dream of being a princess.  As an independent, strong woman with big dreams and worldly ideas it felt impossible for me to focus on finding love when I was younger.  I thought I didn’t need anything from anyone as I could take care of myself, thank you.  Besides, there just seemed to be more pressing matters in the world, like injustice and violence, that I needed to take a stand for and read about in obsessive detail before I did anything about trying to find my “soul mate,” if such a thing existed.

I believed there were more important things to do first.  Some of which I acted on, like beginning a yoga and meditation practice and becoming an instructor, and many things that just stayed in my head, like having a big acting career so I could then change the world.  For many reasons I believed that having an awesome dream career, impacting the world in a positive way, being strong and independent and being deeply spiritual came before being in a loving partnership.  What was I thinking?

Flash forward to now, and a whole lot of learning later, here’s why I know now that being in an ideal partnership (if that is what one truly wants) allows one to fully express her highest potential in all four of those areas mentioned above.

Dream Career – The support of your ideal partner can actually fuel your drive and inspiration for career and business and allow you to stay focused on it.  Dating while pursuing a career can be very distracting.  It can be hard to stay focused on a path while falling in and out of love.  For me, having the loving support of my husband has given me a strong foundation and even more motivation to create the career path ideal for myself and our family’s future.  Also, graciously receiving and giving love has opened up my heart to accepting and giving abundance in a way that was blocked before.

Positive Impact On the World – Okay, I don’t know what I was thinking back then because what impacts the world more positively than soul love, being an example of that soul love in partnership to others and raising children in a happy, loving family?  Moving on…

Being Strong and Independent – I used to think that having to be with someone was a sign of my weakness but now I see that having to be alone, while silently wanting to be with someone, actually isn’t strong and definitely not independent.  Being in the ideal relationship while maintaining your strength and independence and respecting that of your partner’s trumps being strong and independent alone.  The two strong, loving individuals become an interdependent force together.

Being spiritual – Huh?  Being spiritual has nothing to do with any external forms – married or single, smart or simple, prosperous or poor, etc. – as we are all spirit, all the time.  If the desire for a love partnership has been put in to your heart, then God or Spirit (or whatever form of the Divine you prefer) has put it there for you to express it.  Our greatest spiritual growth comes from the lessons we receive in relationships.  Our greatest dedication to God comes from our partnerships, romantic or otherwise, being of service in this world.  I’m experiencing greater spirituality with the support of my husband helping me to grow daily.

Of course those are just my examples as to why I didn’t think it was necessary and even embarrassed to focus on love before.  Do you have any reasons for putting love off?  Across the board, any reason or excuse that delays you from living the life of your absolute dreams is just a fear-based belief that is not serving you.  We are here to live fearlessly and in our highest potential, all the time.

For the love and benefit of the entire world, get clear on your dreams and heart’s desires and live them!

What are your reasons for putting love off for later?  I’d love to read your comments.

Welcome, Deliberate Creators of Love and Life!

Hello and welcome!  Thank you for taking the time for check out my blog site, I sincerely hope you find it inspiring.  My name is Dina Robison, some of you may know me as Dina Prioste (my maiden name).  I’m a yoga and meditation instructor but did you know that I also guide women to attract the love they truly desire?  This site will feature articles related to inspiration, empowerment, and personal growth in love.  Loving on purpose and with a purpose!

Why coach women who want true love?  I’ll save the detailed response for a future post but, in short, my life has been completely transformed from one of stark independence, loneliness, fear and doubt into one of interdependence, empowerment, joy and love that I had never before dreamed was possible, (as seen in the picture below.)  Image

Once I got clear deep soul love happened for me in a very short time.  So I truly believe that any woman who wants it too and commits herself to the path will have the same happen for her.  I am here to offer you the insights, tips and inspiration that I discovered on my journey to love.

In the meantime if you have any questions, ideas or stories about attracting your ideal partner, please comment – I’d love to hear your thoughts!
