“The supreme happiness of life is
the conviction that we are loved”

“Love rules without rules”
Would it shock you terribly if I told you that I don’t recall the word ‘love’ ever used in my family in ordinary conversation when I was growing up? The only time I did hear it was during evening prayers which my father religiously led us in daily.
It was little surprise, therefore, that ‘love’ wasn’t a word I used easily or comfortably as a young adult and while I was married. Having children helped greatly but, through the history of my family, I would also hear the word used almost flippantly and sometimes manipulatively.
In my experience, therefore, I have gone from almost never hearing the word ‘love’ (bar in a religious context) to hearing it being somewhat ‘ab-used’!
Did this influence my understanding and experience of love? You bet it did. Did it remain the sole influence? No, thank goodness. But it did set the stage for my dedicated exploration of this phenomenon we call ‘love’.
In fact, over the years (and there have been many), I have kept my ears close to the ground, the ground of love that is. Through the relationships that I had following the breakdown of my marriage and as a single woman, parent and mentor since, I have read and listened to what others have had to say from the fields of psychology to spirituality and science.
I have reflected on my personal experiences and those of my clients. I have observed myself and others and I have meditated. In other words, I have ‘studied’ love through a number of ‘real life’ modalities!
What I have learned from all this has enabled me to love better, to live better and to help others love and live better. It has helped me understand, accept and experience myself and others so much more authentically, richly and in ways that I had never thought possible!
It has kept me from falling victim to the unpredictability of relationships without the loss of faith or passion! And it has helped me maintain a sense of equanimity or even-mindedness through some very painful life experiences.
Embedded in most of our minds are myths about love, fears about love and conflicting and disempowering beliefs about love.
If you have wondered why it seems so hard to love or to be loved or why love, which is supposed to be a wonderful thing, can also be the cause of such terrible heartache, then I am certain that The Love Course will help clear things up for you.
In a no-nonsense yet loving way, The Love Course will
· Explain some of the most perplexing things about ‘love’.
· De-myth-ify the most commonly held myths about love and relationships.
· Lead you gently through a series of questions, exercises, meditations and visualizations to help you identify and sort through your own beliefs, doubts, (mis)understandings and expectations about love.
· Give you many opportunities to reflect on and re-assess your dominant and conscious as well as subtle and subconscious thoughts, words and behaviours that characterize your relationships.
· Teach you specific skills to help you overcome unloving habits of thought, speech and behaviour
· Help you build the confidence you need to love effortlessly, freely and fully.
In short, The Love Course will help you love and live life more joyously, richly and successfully than you have ever done!
If you are still doubtful, try answering the following questions as honestly as you can:
1. Are you happy? Or does pain or dissatisfaction or restlessness outweigh the joyful experiences in your life?
2. Do you find yourself judging, chastising, criticizing or getting impatient with yourself or someone close to you?
3. Are you generally happy and comfortable with who you are as a person?
4. Do you find yourself entering into relationships because you need to be loved and accepted?
5. Do you find that you are in need of reassurance about your worthiness, value or lovability?
6. Do you feel loving and loved? Or are you afraid to show love and equally afraid to receive love?
7. Are your decisions (big and small) driven by love thus leaving you feeling joyous, peaceful and powerful? Or are they driven by fear, guilt and/or anger thus leaving you feeling anxious and powerless?
8. Do you feel in control of your life? Or do you feel a victim of the people and situations in your life?
In short, are you living in love?
For most of us, the hardest lessons of love tend to occur in the school of so-called ‘romantic’ relationships/partnerships or marriage. Yet, there is a much larger school called ‘life in general’ whose lessons in love we have largely ignored, dismissed or failed to see the significance of.
You see, love is not confined to particular relationships despite what Hollywood would have you believe. No, love is the very fabric of life and we must recognize it everywhere if we are to recognize it at all! How do you do this?
Let me show you.
Sign up for The Love Course. It is offered in two Options. One without my weekly feedback, the other with. If cost is a factor (and please note how drastically I have reduced my price just so that many more people can benefit from this wonderful program), then purchase the former. However, I would encourage you purchase the latter as it will give you the added company of a fellow-traveler.
If you feel that you are living at less than 100% of your love/life potential, I urge you to sign up for the course that could seriously turn things around for you.
If you want more joy, less fear, a greater sense of control and peace, this course will certainly help you!
Living in Love is NOT a Random thing
Too many of us believe that we’re either lucky in love or we’re not. In other words, we believe that living joyously, peacefully, abundantly, passionately and freely is a rather random affair, or one predetermined by some quirk of fate aka god, destiny, the stars, karma etc.
I want to assure you that there is nothing random or predetermined, at least not by any external force. You and only you determine your life experiences! With your beliefs and perceptions, you create your life experiences.
Now I know you’ve heard this many, many times before. It’s ‘new age speak’! You even say it to yourself and others. And yet, while you want to believe it and even think that you believe it, your beliefs are not reflected in the life you’re living.
What do I mean by that? Well, if you did believe that you determine your life, surely your life would be blissful and perfect, offering you all the love, romance, power, freedom and creative space you ever wanted, right?
So, why isn’t it so?
Could it be that
You don’t know how?
