Love-Energy Blocks

What would it take for you to believe you are worthy of love?

Years ago, in my 20’s I would get hit on a lot but love always eluded me. It almost seemed impossible the way it would.  I would have a couple dates, things would be going so well and then … POOF! The guy would completely disappear. Then again with a new date shortly after- I would start to get excited, “Maybe this time somebody will want to be with me” – then…POOF! Gone again.

Everybody seemed to look at me and go, wow it must be so easy to get a boyfriend looking like you do. But for me, it felt absolutely impossible.  This kept happening over and over and over again.

I figured I was just unlucky in love. Nobody understood; it didn’t matter how much money I would make, or how good looking I could get. The results would always be the same, they would always leave me and I would be alone forever.

This started to change and then completely flip on its head when I started to fully understand this energy, and it really is an energy. Somehow I was repelling this energy. I was unconsciously rejecting love. Now it’s the opposite and it’s just a night and day difference I can’t even explain. I share this story because perhaps you too, have these love-energy blocks that are holding you back from what you really desire in life. I made a quick list for you to determine if this is the case with your individual situation.

 

How to know if you have love-energy blocks

  1.   You can’t ever get past the first couple of dates
  2.   You get blocked on dating apps often, sometimes for seemingly no reason at all
  3.   You get stood up and canceled on, even at the last second
  4.   You sometimes feel like an outsider, even within your own family
  5.   You constantly go after narcissists or guys who won’t treat you well
  6.   You think love belongs only to the good-looking, muscular, successful, masculine or rich people of the world

 

So where do these blocks come from? Well, they come from ourselves, parents, our family, our classmates, our acquaintances, our community and the outside world. Growing up gay it’s almost inevitable. Time and time again in the most critical first years of our lives we see examples that “PROVE” to us, that we will never be worthy of love.

-That’s gay, this is gay; gay people are disgusting.  Gay marriage is wrong. Guys shouldn’t act feminine or be into “girly things.” Gay people should be shot; gay people shouldn’t kiss in front of kids. Sadly this example list can go on forever.

These examples bring about a belief pattern that can almost seem impossible to break.

Our results: more people distancing themselves from us, more rejection, more loneliness.  It’s what we are used to, it’s our sick way of staying “safe” cause it’s what we are accustomed to. The pattern repeats itself again.

If you have these love-energy blocks, you must recognize them and eliminate them in order to create the joy and abundance of love you desire. This is the root cause of this issue.

Transcending love-energy blocks is no easy task, but it is very possible and I am here to help show you the way.

Do you have love-energy blocks? If so, what will it take for you to believe you are worthy of love? What strategy do you have to break this cycle?

5 Secrets to help others LOVE YOU

  1.    Love them first

We want everybody to love us. Or at least, a mix of family and friends and a lover (or more) to make us feel alive & connected. We want our journey to have proof; some people along for the ride that can understand us & our decision making.

I once had a very good friend as I was going through a rough time in life, look at me and say, “How do you keep being you, how do you do it?” I’ve never felt so understood, in one sentence my friend let me know that he knew how hard things could be for my particular position in the world at times, and how hard I was trying to fight back in my own unique way.

We must get the courage to love others FIRST, and unconditionally. Do you smile at others first when you see a stranger? Do you forgive your friends first when there is a fight? Do you try to understand your loved ones’ decisions first or do you skip to judgment until they prove to you otherwise? Do you empathize first? All of these will help you start to get those special people out there to love you more.

  1.   Let them be themselves

One of the hardest things in the world is to actually be ourselves. Every day is a constant bombardment of ideas coming at us, comparisons to other lives on social media, and our own personal thoughts, ideas and creations.

We must choose our path from a mix of all of these, and sometimes under excruciating pressure from others, but mostly from ourselves.

So what is going to be right and wrong? Nobody really knows. But if you can let others walk their walk and cheer on their crazy flag you might just get more people on your side of the fence.

That doesn’t mean we can’t offer advice when they ask for it or speak to our own experiences; it just means we realize that although it may not look like it, everybody is out there battling in the world.

We are battling for happiness, battling for survival, battling to be loved by others and even to love ourselves including all the mistakes we have made. I was once in a high-pressure work situation and my co-worker came up to me and said the barrier-breaking words “How Can I Help?” It took me by surprise, and instantly we became an unstoppable team that night. I’ve used this line effectively ever since; I highly encourage you to try it sometime.

  1.   Give Your Truth

As you gain confidence in the world, you will be urged to share your truth. This doesn’t mean we force our way of life onto others, it means we show and describe our authentic lens of the world to the people around us. We share our stories, our challenges, our dreams. We share our gifts. We share our failures. We lead by example. And if you really want to get closer to others, you share your doubts.

There’s a certain power in vulnerability, a special healing force that comes out of giving our truth. When we bare our soul, other like-characters can’t help but relate and be drawn towards us.

This doesn’t mean we rant or lash out at the world. This doesn’t mean we whine. It means to say “Hey this is who I am and this is my journey; here’s what I have learned, maybe we can help each other somehow.”

  1.   Teach them what you know

One of our most basic needs is learning from others, from the time we are born we must learn to survive and this stays with us to death and beyond. I say this obvious point because later in life it seems people may be forgetting this fact. I don’t think they realize the power they hold when it comes to connecting with others here.

We learn, we grow and we learn even more to get ahead, but how are we helping others along the way?

Teaching others what you know gives a sense of connection like no other. Some people fulfill this with the need to become a parent, others may want to become managers at work or a coach like me.

Whenever and wherever you are, teaching others what we know at the proper and specific times is an art form. If you can hone this special skill pay attention to the respect you begin to receive.

It’s like a kind of passing of the torch. When we come up with an idea it’s as if we light the torch, then we must pass it on. Later on, we hope to get the flame back someday again, and the beautiful cycle continues. Every transfer of information bringing us closer and closer together.

  1.   Give them Freedom

This is the most challenging secret to learn especially for myself, and some may not agree with me here, that’s okay. We must give others their freedom. Our freedom is one of the most precious things on earth, but rarely will people be so giving and so loving as to let you really be free.

Often our friendships and relationships come with rules and obligations. We have emotional protection mechanisms put in place to keep us from getting hurt, when the reality is our soul can never really be damaged, only our ego.

I challenge you to grow. I challenge you to have faith that you can be connected to the special people in our life, whether they are with you physically or not. I challenge you to instead have those uncomfortable conversations, those getting-to-know-you deeper talks.

When you give others freedom, you give them the chance to grow. You give them the experience of living. You give them the power to make their own choices. Later on, this power & connection comes back to you tenfold.

Using Facebook As Therapy Does Not Work

USING FACEBOOK AS THERAPY DOES NOT WORK

Since its inception, people have been using FB as a sounding board to write about their breakups, their problems with friends, dealing with loneliness, and a host of other personal issues. I sat back and watched silently; what do these people REALLY HOPE TO GAIN with these posts? As a coach, I personally tell my clients to run the other way if they are dating somebody that is practicing this type of behaviour, here’s why:

1. The person who writes these posts are always “right,” making the other person “wrong.” They essentially bash their exes on Social Media. We get it, he’s a complete dick, and she’s a big whore, but does garnering a bunch of hearts and likes actually help in any way? Of course not. It shows me one VERY IMPORTANT THING, this person has NO PROCESS AND STRUCTURE TO DEAL WITH THE ACTUAL EMOTIONS THAT TOOK PLACE. Instead, they resort to FB as a means to deflect the pain they are going through, looking for temporary relief and attention. This in turn tells me one thing: this drama is going to repeat again, and again, and again.

2. They make themselves a Dating Victim: the whole world sucks except for them. Insert Facebook rant. For some reason (but definitely, definitely not because of any of their choices), they keep dating these a-holes. If they don’t find a professional to help, I can predict one thing – more biatches and a-holes are a comin’ their way. They need to break their love-energy cycle. Do they know how to do this? How has blaming the world and all of their exes worked out for them so far?

3. It’s a ginormous red flag. Relationships come and go for one main purpose – to facilitate learning. If they have come to the sounding board to be “right,” it’s proof that they aren’t willing to look in the mirror and learn ANYTHING about themselves through the process they’ve so painfully shared with us. Relationships depend on teaching and learning, if you are seeing somebody that always needs to be “right” (enough to sound off on FB about it), then it’s very likely the relationship is doomed. We are more than just a body, we are powerful beyond measure – if being “wrong” about something somehow takes away from who we think we are, we’re missing the point of life. If being “right” is more important than the relationship, it has no chance to begin with.

I know some of you are fuming mad at me right now – how dare he, he doesn’t understand?! The thing is, I do. I used to be just like you. And believe it or not, I want to help, and that’s why I wrote this post. Using Facebook as therapy (vaguebooking) HAS NEVER AND WILL NEVER WORK. Please find the courage to seek out a self-confidence coach, relationship coach, or a therapist. YOU CAN DO THIS AND YOU HAVE MORE POWER OVER YOUR OWN LIFE THAN YOU REALIZE!

The First Step to becoming a STUD

The First Step to becoming a STUD

I have been racking my brain, meditating, and asking my business coaches and friends: what is the piece that I am missing here? I have clients that take my course and people are buying my books but why is it just trickling in when I feel like people should be knocking down my door? As far as I know I’m the only guy in the world that can GUARANTEE my clients will have a DRAMATIC INCREASE in their self-confidence, and where it really matters to us.

90% of my clients have a significant relationship within a year of taking my course. 90 freaking percent! The other 10% you mention? Yup, well after taking my course they decided that they would finally live it up and ENJOY their single life for maybe the first time in their lives.  It still blows my mind.  I know guys that are getting married or are now living with their partners and it lifts me the fuck up knowing I had even if just a little piece of setting them on that path.

BUT, they all did the first step to becoming a STUD before I even spoke to them. This is really what started to change their lives.

So what the fuck are we waiting for? What is this first step!?

THE FIRST STEP TO BECOMING A STUD IS BEING MAN ENOUGH AND COURAGEOUS ENOUGH TO RECOGNIZE WE NEED HELP AND THEN TAKE ACTION. EITHER BY SEEKING OUT INFORMATION OR FINDING THE RIGHT PERSON WHO HAS THE KNOWLEDGE WE NEED TO CHANGE AND GROW. WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT THINGS ARE NOT WORKING, AND THAT IF WE DO NOT CHANGE THEY NEVER WILL.

STUDs all have one thing in common: they realize they don’t know it all and never can. They have the ability to check their ego enough to investigate and then soak up information they need to get bigger, faster, better, stronger, wiser, more passionate, become a better lover, ANYTHING.

Remembering back in my desperate and lonely days, this was the thing that changed my life.  I remember thinking, Is this all there is to life? Is this as good as it gets? Then it hit me, some people out there are living happier, healthier, better lives. They seem to always have women or men after them and they seem to really be happy and fulfilled. I had to find out how they were doing it. So I summoned the courage, and for me, I started to read books on confidence, relationships, dating, spirituality, happiness – and to this day, I STILL READ AND AM STILL LEARNING about all of these same things.

So. Are we willing today to take the FIRST STEP TO BECOMING A STUD? ARE WE WILLING TO ADMIT WE DO NOT KNOW IT ALL? Are we willing to admit that we are all teachers in this universe but as well we are all learners at times?

We can do this.  We can step out of our comfort zones today and say, “alright, I’m here. Now let’s learn something and then never stop learning.”

Trust me it will be one of the best decisions of your entire life.

Blog: Why Giving is Receiving when it comes to Relationships

Why Giving is Receiving when it comes to relationships.

Religious or not, Jesus was spot on when he said giving is receiving – at least when it comes to relationships.  I want to share with you 2 ways you may not have thought of, to create a potential relationship, or improve a friendship, familial tie, or take a romantic relationship to a whole new level.

Giving the spark – giving warm, exciting or uplifting feelings to people

When it comes to dating, I hear it all the time: “I want to meet somebody that gets me excited. I want somebody that gives me that spark. I want somebody that drives me crazy. I want to be really sexually attracted to my partner.” GREAT! I think you deserve that, probably more than the next person; but, what are YOU DOING to give this to the world around you? What efforts are you making to give this to others you may wish to date? You are so ready to take it, though, aren’t you?

Let me show you a few ways we can improve this now:

a)We keep in shape, eat healthy and drink tons of water (this does WONDERS for our skin). Seems pretty freaking redundant, doesn’t it? Thing is, we often don’t do it: we neglect ourselves. I see this in loving relationships all the time. Guys come to me wanting a spark back in their relationship, yet aren’t willing to lose even some of the pounds they have put on since dating their lover. I’ll make it simple here: if you are desiring it, be the first to give it. Be the example. Give first. Always. Don’t ever stop

b)Maintenance. We trim the hair that needs to be trimmed (head to toe – ears too, seriously) and we update our wardrobe as our budget suits. This doesn’t have to be all the time even every couple years is okay in our adulthood (some fashionistas are going to be screaming at me on this one)

c)We participate in our interests. We light up as humans when we are working on something we are passionate about. It doesn’t matter if it’s your job or not.  Even a couple hours during the week engaging and participating in something you love will help raise your AQ® and give off a fresh energy people will enjoy being around. Sports, painting, making funny videos, singing, even playing in poker tournaments (maybe not the addicted types) are some examples

2. Supporting the dreams and goals of the people (current or potential) we have in our lives.

I can hear you now: “I already do this.” Well, I’m calling major BULLSHIT. Cause quite simply you most likely don’t, and that is totally okay. It’s actually a very rare quality to REALLY support the dreams and goals of the people around us, mostly because we are scared of being identified with things that aren’t completely in line with who we think we are or project to be. We don’t want to be associated with music we don’t like so we don’t share our friends DJ page, or we don’t like abstract art so we don’t tell people about our friends’ art exhibit. I can name a million examples here.

Have you really liked AND SHARED all of your top 10 friends and family members professional Facebook pages/twitter/Instagram/website/blog/YouTube page/other?  Have you offered any financial help? Have you offered to donate some of your time to help them with their new business or special hobby? Have you connected them with potential clients or people that could possibly help them in any way shape or form? Unless you answered yes to all of these question, you don’t particularly stand out in the way of supporting others’ dreams.

THIS IS GOOD IF YOU ARE RECOGNIZING THIS NOW.

If we now start to do these things and show support by some sense of consistent and real action, GREAT things can happen. Your friends and family will notice the difference, and maybe not publicly – but behind closed doors, you will slowly begin to see how more open and responsive they are towards you. Supporting others when they are the most vulnerable is a special and rare thing. People will remember you forever if you supported them in a time of need.

Try these things for yourself! Don’t expect things to come back instantly or in the same form. The universe will work its’ magic in mysterious ways. But, giving is receiving when it comes to any form of relationship. So, get out there and start giving!

Top 10 reasons you may still be single (for 3+ years)

Being single is just as awesome as being in a relationship – if you are doing it right! That being said, if you do want to switch things up and be in a relationship and have struggled with this for 3 or more years, here are the top 10 reasons why this may be why. Enjoy!

You’re not willing to give others your time and energy

  1. Relationships involve putting in effort, sometimes even when it is not convenient for you.  You may spend hours every day on Tinder, POF or Grindr, and/or you go to the bars on weekends searching for that special somebody.  But when it comes to making a date- if you can’t even push your gym time back half an hour to fit them in, it is a clear sign that you don’t realize what relationships are all about, and what keeps them together.  There are countless upon countless of super sexy, successful men and women out there.  Month after month goes by, then year after year goes by and they still wonder. “Why am I still single when I have so much awesomeness going on”?  If this sounds like you, consider this point carefully. If you live in a large city and can’t seem to find a date on Friday night can you really blame the millions of other people out there? Of course not.  The only common denominator in all of your relationships (or lack thereof) is you.  There are plenty of great catches out there, perhaps you just haven’t taken the quality time with them because you have been slightly self-absorbed.  That’s okay, the minute you start to give others a real chance, open up, and be willing to give them your time and energy—the world of love might just open its doors to you.

You keep doing the same daily routine and expecting different results

      2. This sounds like common sense. But is it really? If you go to the same places, on the same days, and go online on the same sites at the same times every day, you are literally looking at the same pool of fish, day in and day out.  It’s time to mix it up. Go out on the other end of town this weekend.  Connect with a different group of friends. You have absolutely nothing to lose here.  Go a step farther and look at your life and see what ways you could do to possibly see an increase of new faces and meet new people. It’s simple math here; increase the odds of love in your favor.

You don’t have any interest in your own life. No hobbies, no interests. So why would they have an interest in you, if you don’t?

     3. If you spend more time creeping others’ lives on the internet other than on working and living in your own life, it is a clear sign that you have lost interest in your own life.  If you are not creating your own path and bringing others into it, others are bringing you into theirs. Keep a nice balance.  What would being interested in your own life look like? Well for one thing you wouldn’t be on your phone all the time.  You would be paying attention to what is happening in the here and now.  This one I am working on these days and it is not easy!

You don’t love yourself and the world is following suit

     4. When we love ourselves, we give off a special aura of confidence people enjoy being around. Do you REALLY love yourself and think you are amazing?  If you don’t, try showing yourself some true love.  Eat healthy, exercise, and don’t forget to feed your soul (meditate, walks in nature) and your mind (learning new skills, books). You give and you get. Not the other way around.  Take care of yourself and watch how others start to pay a little more attention to you. If you don’t know where to start, that’s okay, reach out to a recommended professional.

You are in a stagnant relationship that you are too afraid to let go of

5. Playing it safe is great for a lot of people. If this is you nothing I write will change that.  I can tell you though that you will never ever find that game changing partner if you are clinging on to a past that isn’t serving you anymore.

You have become bitter and jaded, cynical

    6. Nobody likes to be around a Debbie Downer. Your friends will put up with you and your family will encourage you to pick up your feet in life. But the bottom line is, people that have a positive outlook and fun attitude attract others while negativity pushes others away.  Get over yourself. You were never really hurt in the past, your ego was.  Let it go and get back out there and try to enjoy this short time you have here.  You’re only going to be this age once in your life so it’s a good idea to be making the most of it.

You have lost faith

7. Yes you have had some bad break ups and have run into some serious assholes. I’m sorry for that, nobody deserves that, really.  But if you have given up on finding a partner in this life that is a sure fire way to get exactly that, nothing.  To gain big you have to be willing to keep loving the world, without expectations, even when things don’t go as planned.

Your belief systems hold you in place and reinforce your doubts

     8. We often have experiences in life and because of such, treat them as the ultimate “truth” of the world.  The problem with this is that once we have a specific set of programming in our brain, we unconsciously do everything we can to see and validate these “truths.” If we go out with a few girls/guys that are extremely superficial and come to the conclusion that “all men or woman are superficial”, we set ourselves up for failure and to repeat the same process. Why? Because our brains are always working and we want to be “right” about how we feel. So we seek out the energy of yet another superficial person because it already fits into a story we “know” and are familiar with, while ignoring the down to earth guys or girls and unchartered territory that comes along with it.  The result: you once again become validated in your thoughts that you are “right” in your belief and opinion about this, and meet yet another superficial person that you are frustrated with.  The problem with this cycle is IT DOESN’T serve you and it’s definitely not the same experience all of us are having.  There are plenty of down to earth awesome guys/gals out there; having THIS belief in my brain empowers me, helps me feel good, and puts me in a position of strength to have the correlating experiences that come along with it. You have to be willing to see outside of your own limiting experiences and look at the glass half full if you want different results.

Bad hygiene

    9. Bad breathe and bad body odor are deal breakers for a lot of people.  Some guys take this “natural smell” thing a little far. If it’s sour smelling, for the love of God take a shower.  When it comes to bad breathe, if you aren’t brushing 3 times daily and flossing then you run the risk of others backing away when you are talking to them….and you can forget any type of kissing.  The same runs true with colognes and perfumes.  Keep those to a minimum.  How do you know if you stink or not? Ask a really great friend to give you some honest truth.

You just haven’t met them yet

    10. Relax. Single life is awesome. If YOUR single life is awesome, then it’s likely you don’t really care when your next big loving relationship will come along.  It’s also very likely that others will want to be a part of your awesome life.  Breakups happen all the time and we are all in the process of life.  Enjoy the ride and don’t get stuck in singledom or in a stagnant relationship.  Once you have mastered the art of love people will come into your life with ease, and you can flow from being single to being in a relationship (and vice versa) with ease, grace and joy!
