But during that time I discovered me again, and it in that time, I discovered I am an awesome person. I want to have love again in my life, lately have made some wrong choices, what I want to know, Is will I find love again? ~Susann, USA

ANSWER: Many of this life’s lessons concerned the departure of your husband. It was arranged for him to leave you because you were so connected and dependent on each other. The soul’s journey is a singular affair with interludes of partnerships. Yours came to an end so you might move into completing your lessons.

When he left you felt anger, abandonment, grief, loneliness, survivor’s guilt, and a lack of direction to a degree never before encountered. You did not have him around to help you work through these feelings, and that, too, was new. In your devastated world you first had to find yourself, and then decide how you wished to continue.

The choices were basically twofold: you could remain in the negative energy of all these emotions or you could accept that you had the choice to throw off the bad feelings and replace all with positive feelings of love and happiness.

It was time to take sole responsibility for the future. You were able to do this when you finally acknowledged that you had the power to understand the lessons – and that they were just that, only lessons – and move on creating for the remainder of your existence in this body.

You will find love when you step back, get rid of your haste, and let the universe come to you. Your problem with the approach you have taken is the desperation you feel. There is no need for that – just be yourself. You are the only important thing in your world. Envision what type of companion you desire. Put the intention out into the world that you are ready to receive. Then just wait.
