This line from the song “Nature Boy” changed my life.
When I was in 3rd grade I had a special feeling for Robert, a boy in my class. I hoped that maybe he felt the same for me so one day I kissed him. He called me a homo, punched me in the stomach and knocked the wind out of me. I was devastated.
I had no idea what a homo was but I knew it couldn’t be good. When my older brother explained it was a guy who loves other guys, and that it was probably the worst thing you could possible be, I felt like someone had trampled on my heart. How could this thing that felt so wonderful be so bad?
I tried to hide it, deny it but I couldn’t. I got very sad for a long time.
In 7th grade I heard “Nature Boy” for the first time. Tears filled my eyes as I heard that final line; tears of joy and relief telling me that no matter what anyone else said or thought I could not deny this part of myself. I had to follow my heart.
Following my heart and learning to love and be loved in return has been an amazing adventure and an integral part of my spiritual journey. It has taught me so much about myself, about life and about relationships. It has not always been an easy road. My heart has been broken many times and I have had the wind knocked out of me more than once. But I never gave up.
Today I’m in relationship with someone I love, who loves me in return. Our relationship is a source of joy and healing for both of us. It enhances every area of my life, motivating me to be my best, most authentic self. This is why I get so excited every time I work with a client who’s ready to open to love and find their soulmate. Or when a client who had given up on love (and given me all the reasons why it can’t, or won’t, or hasn’t worked for them) has a breakthrough and admits their heart still longs for love. Because wanting it, desire, is the key that opens the door.
Desire is a powerful motivator and the desire to find your soulmate, to love and be loved in return, may be the most powerful motivating force in all humanity, because that desire blossoms from desire to KNOW THYSELF. What better way to know and experience yourself than through the eyes of your soulmate?
