It’s summer vacation time—a time when many couples go away to enjoy romantic sunsets, make memories, and explore new adventures. Which leaves many of us single people feeling pretty left out. But if we dwell on that feeling, than we just attract more loneliness—or “stay-at-home aloneness.”
But what if I told you that I have a wonderful way for you to manifest both your wonderful new beloved and your romantic getaway at the same time?
It’s a practice I’ve begun this year to open my mind, my heart, and my energy to the vibration that would create a future filled with fantastic world travels with the man who is to be my loving companion.
It’s called “Traveling with Your Beloved.” Download a simple online calendar template where you can write a few words in each square. Then go buy or dig out a bunch of travel magazines, the travel sections of your daily paper, or go hunting on travel websites.
Each day you create a fabulous vacation in your mind with your ideal lover—some place you’ve never been, but have read about in your research. I keep a file of great places I want to go, and so this process fits in perfectly. Now, you want to create this vision with all the reality you can muster. See it. See the beauty, the colors, the quaint buildings, the colorful local people,
the romantic vistas, the pretty outdoor cafes, and so on. Smell its smells—the ocean, foods cooking, the perfume of the flowers. Hear the sounds—waves lapping, swooshing skis, birds chirping, lions roaring. Touch what there is to touch—the soft back of a manta ray, the textiles, the roses, the wood carvings.
You will then begin to experience all this alongside of your sweet love. Experience the things you want to do together—sightseeing, sailing, cycling, dining, dancing, touching, laughing, reading, or making love.
So pick a place. Then start to fill in the picture from the moment you arrive. Where are you staying? What’s the view from the window? How does he or she nuzzle your ear while you look out the window together? What does theroom look like? Is there a breeze wafting in from the windows? What do you two first want to do or see?
Head out the door and begin your adventure—museums; photography; walking around and exploring; hiking, cycling, snorkeling, diving, horseback riding, rafting, or skiing; going to traditional ethnic restaurants, local drinkingestablishments, or cafes; listening to music; following in the footsteps of history;lying on a beach; experiencing nature; watching beautiful sunsets; meditating together; and so on. Remember to picture the interaction betweenyou—hand holding, kissing, snuggling, hugging, eyes locking, laughter, feeding each other sweets. . .
Now imagine coming back to the room at the end of the day. What happens between you? Go ahead. It’s your dream. You can do anything you want!
Be imaginative from beginning to end. It can be as exotic or as mundane as you want. Do you want to go to Antarctica and live below ground in winterfor a week? Or take a weekend away at Big Sur in California, sail the Caribbean, or float the Amazon? Then of course, there’s the French Riviera or an African Safari. Your imagination is the only limit.
Here are a few places I’ve already been with my love (in my mind, of course). . . Singapore; a Greek Island; Vermont in the autumn; Provence,France; Angkor Wat, Cambodia; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Sophia, Bulgaria; Canary Islands; Tierra del Fuego, Argentina; Catalina Island, California; theGalapagos Islands; and Washington DC.
Do this every day for a year and record on your calendar where you have been. By doing this, you have created the emotion of love each day in yourheart, and set the energy in motion to attract prospective partners to you who share your love of travel and the world. And just maybe, next summer, you’ll be among those traveling with your beloved for real!
