First, for those of you who feel it will be another summer of no romance, perhaps you are feeling lonely or sad, or resigned to the thought you are currently not with the love of your life let me offer you a very short exercise to help dispel this self-imposed myth:
1) Get out the egg timer and set it for 5 minutes.
2) For 5 minutes close your eyes and dive deep into the feelings you are feeling. Don't resist on any level, just allow yourself to embrace the full (possibly unpleasant) experience of your sadness, doubt, etc. Look and see where in your body the feelings reside, feel them and then see if you can feel them even more intensely.
3) Breathe deeply during this process and with each exhale, breathe out the emotion while silently saying to yourself to each unpleasant thought: thank you and goodbye.
Chances are before the 5 minutes are up, all or most of these feelings will have dissipated. This is because you have stopped "resisting" feeling those feelings.

When you allow yourself to be fully present with what is true for you in that moment, your discomfort will disappear. Your breath will always bring calm. You can count on that.
Next, re-set the egg timer for 5 minutes and then close your eyes while taking long, slow deep breaths. Now imagine that you are surrounded by a beautiful, protective Pink light while you silently speak to yourself words of love and encouragement: (and "feel" that they are true for you)
I radiate love and happiness.
I am deserving of love.
