The Power of Emotions

Our emotions are indicators of the kinds of things that we are focusing upon.

When we FEEL good, happy, joyful, positive, exhilarated, giddy, fabulous, it’s because we are focusing on things that please us.

We resonate, approve, appreciate, love what we see and our emotions confirm it for us.

We all know how terrific that feels. We want to feel that way all the time!


When we feel bad, resentful, angry, sad, annoyed, negative, grumpy, lousy, it’s because we are focusing on things that displease us.

We judge, fear, disapprove, hate what we see and our emotions confirm it for us.

And it really sucks, doesn’t it?

Could it really be that simple? Can I actually control the way I feel by what I choose to focus upon? What about other people, special circumstances? What about “fate”?

Focus on what you wish to get more of. Yes, it’s really is that simple!


We get to choose what we focus upon AND how we choose to respond to what we see. If we react to something that we find to be negative; by focusing even harder on it, by complaining about it, by commiserating with our friends about it, it WILL get bigger.

We can react to something we find negative by softening our focus on it, by noticing the positive aspects of it, or by changing our focus entirely to something that pleases us.

(This is not looking at something you find negative and pretending that it’s not negative. This is merely shifting your gaze away from what you find negative and focusing on something you find more pleasing.)

Remember, you get to choose! So BE SELECTIVE!
When you can do this, the negative thing will NOT get bigger and may even begin to go away.

Either way, we have short circuited the downward slide that we sometimes find ourselves on by making this shift. Checking in with our emotions tells us if we have succeeded.

Romantic gestures are NOT a replacement for real communication. Sharing the details of your dreams and goals are important for the well-being of your love relationship. Be sure to set aside time every day to connect and converse intimately with your Beloved.

What should you talk about?

  • Tell about your wild schemes and ideas for the future.
  • Tell what is important to you in your present life.
  • Share things that you are happy about.
  • Share things that you love about the other person.
  • Even share things you’d like to work on about yourself.

Try to keep a positive spin on your romantic conversations. They’ll stay more romantic that way!

And Remember to wax poetic about all of the things you are grateful for, often!

The Honeymoon is Over?

Some people think that less and less romance as time passes is part of the natural progression of a relationship. We’ve all heard the expression “the honeymoon is over”.


But it doesn’t need to be!

I like to think of romance as a way of life! Coming up with great romantic ideas is just another way for me to stay connected with my mate and to nourish the giving side of myself.

The more romance ideas I use in my life, the happier I feel and the happier I feel, the more love I have to share.

I’ve learned that waiting for someone else to “be romantic” usually doesn’t work! I can take the reins and steer our love wagon into all sorts of exciting romantic adventures. With this approach, everyone wins!
So how do we create more romance in our lives?
All we really need is

1. some inspiration

2. a bit of passion and

3. a commitment to make it happen.

We can supply the romance ideas and inspiration for you to jump start your romantic battery.
