The miracle of amazing men

IN CELEBRATION OF THE MALE SPIRIT

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been working through a process to open my heart space so that I can be ready to welcome new love into my life.

One of the steps of this process was to complete the following sentence: “Men are…”  I was SHOCKED to see what came out of my pen – “Men are shallow, unfaithful, and selfish.”  WHAT?!?!  I had no idea those thoughts and beliefs were running around in my brain.  And worse,  they’ve probably been making some really bad decisions for me!

Another step in the program was to do a release process and then choose to embrace new attitudes that will gracefully open the door to the experiences that I desire.  The new attitude that I choose to embrace is one of CELEBRATING the beauty and goodness of the wonderful men that I know.

Last night, I decided to write to a few of these men and let them know how very much I appreciate their presence in my life.  They are each men who have shown me great love and have allowed me to love them back, and they also represent some qualities that I deeply desire to see manifested in my own life and in a future partner.

Writing the email was an experience of deep joy for me, claiming the remembrance that there are deeply good and true men in this world and that I don’t have to go out searching for them – they already exist in my life.  Not only that, each of these three men is in a very loving marriage – the kind of relationships that they speak of in terms of the Universe and destiny.  Rather than fearing that “all the good men are gone,” it makes me happy to know that destiny and the Universe are at work in my life too!

The miracle is that reading their responses has reminded me anew of the beauty and joy of the male spirit.  I am deeply blessed to have these men – and so many other wonderful men and women – in my life.  You – my friends, confidantes, teachers, and family circle – make my world a rich place to move and breathe and live.  I am immensely grateful.  Thank you for being a part of my miracle.
