New Day With Dawn

Dear Dawn...

I have been single for some time now and really want to change that. What do you see for me in the near future regarding attracting a partner into my life?

Thank you, G.


Dear G.,

The best thing you can do for yourself to attract love into your life is know that you deserve it. When we feel lovable ourselves, from the inside out, it is much easier to attract a partner to match the same vibration and see us as being lovable and worthy.

I feel that in the past you have not taken into consideration what chemistry between you and a partner would look like and feel like. Now is an opportune time for you to look deeply into that and determine what having chemistry with another means to you and how different your relationship will be because of it. Our imaginations are a great tool for doing this. One way to invoke your imagination is to allow yourself the luxury of daydreaming.

Write down any thoughts, feelings and images that come to mind and from your heart. These are guide posts to what will be your ideal partnership that includes amazing chemistry.

Divine timing is at work here; this simply means that the more prepared you are the universe will step in and meet you at least half way in the right way and at the right time.

I sense a feeling of playfulness and lightheartedness with this new partner. Allow yourself to experience this and bring this sense of play into your relationship from the very beginning.

Ultimately, I do see you meeting someone within the next few months. Probably closer to the end of May but it is worth the wait.

Another exercise you can do to prepare you to meet this partner is to make a list of the top ten qualities you possess that you would also like your partner to possess. Sometimes we look to meet someone who is so different from us but the truth is that unless we share the same core qualities and values the relationship is likely not to last.

In the meantime, try to take your mind off of the outcome so that the universe can work its magic on your behalf. Enjoy your life being single now and that will serve you in feeling the confidence you need that will draw this partner to you.

Every day is a new day… Just for today allow yourself to enjoy being single. Feel the inner beauty and confidence that exists within and simply needs to be expressed in your day to day to day life. This will help you to feel lovable and worthy of attracting a great partner into your life. Let go of timing and outcomes and allow the universe to work its benevolent magic in your life. You will be pleasantly surprised at the quality of person you will meet by doing this. You do deserve a healthy relationship and it will happen.


Dear Dawn...

I am looking for insight on how I can best deal with the confusion and what seems like a constant waiting game in my life. Can you please advise me?

Thank you, C.


Dear C.,

I am getting several messages for you to help you through this time.

For the next three weeks you are being urged to really take time to get more rest than you usually would allow yourself and do any form of mediation that will allow for you feel rejuvenated by the end of the month.

From there, in May, I see confusion in your relationships being restored with harmony, balance, compassion and love.

You are extremely intuitive and if allow your gift of intuition to guide you daily you will feel a stronger sense of peace and purpose.

I also sense that there will be temptations that may cause you to veer off your path. These temptations are given to you as an opportunity to stay true to yourself, to love yourself and to choose the highest course of action in all that you do. This is not to say that a little indulgence from time to time will hurt you, just don’t allow them to overshadow all that you hold dear and all that you are trying to accomplish.

May will be a very busy month for you and will be given many choices and decisions to make that will allow for what has felt like a long period of waiting to be finally over. Again, in following the guidance above you will be able to make the wisest of decisions and it feels like you will almost be embarking on a very new and exciting path. This is something you have longed for and it is your time, if you so choose.

The next three months will bring you a renewed sense of passion and creativity and the will and strength to fulfil your destiny. Fortune is there for you in whatever you decide and you do have what it takes to create it easily and effortlessly.

You no doubt have been through a very challenging time but there is light at the end of the tunnel and by the fall you will be well on your way to living the life of your dreams. You are stronger and more resilient than you give you yourself credit for.

It is not uncommon to feel exhausted after all that you been through which is why even a three week period of rest and relaxation (and meditation) will help to restore you to balance. A good metaphor for this is to think of it as a love bank. Your account is very low and you can fill it up to the brim through self-care and self-love.

Every day is a new day…. Just for today rest and relax. Be kind to yourself. Speak gentle and loving words to yourself. See yourself as the star of what will be your own show by fall.

Dear Dawn...

The past three months have been like walking through quicksand for me. I have been having nightmares and now the bright light in my life, my child, has started acting out in ways towards me that have been very hurtful and unfair. I have dedicated my life to being there for her and this is causing me so much added grief and anxiety. How do I handle this? When will things feel better and life not be so difficult?

Thank you for advice and wisdom, H.


Dear H.,

Many of my clients have been experiencing the same thing since the New Year. If it helps at all, you are not alone.

In general, we are all being asked to transform our lives in one way or another and that the transformation speaks to your heart and soul, reflecting what is right, just and true for you.

April is going to be a month where your main area of transformation will come to light.

I feel that there are many great things for you on the horizon regarding your career and finances and you have made courageous choices to spread your wings in these areas. Continue to do this in April and the key to your success from May onwards is to take it slow, to be methodical in your approach and trust in Divine Timing.

By the end of April the feeling of walking through quicksand will no longer exist. The Universe has a way of guiding us through these tough times by shining its light on all that is good for us. Keep following that light. Wherever you see it, feel it or sense it in any way, it is guiding you down your true path.

Regarding your child, this is actually the main area of your life that has been out of balance and where boundaries were not taken seriously by your child.

This month is an ideal time to take a time out and reflect on your part in this and determine healthy boundaries moving forward. They key here is to start honouring your own limitations and also start asking for what you need rather than just give of yourself without taking into account your own feelings.

The recent acting out of your child, I feel, is the straw that broke the camel’s back, so to speak, so that you could honestly assess how you have allowed yourself to be treated and have the strength and courage to make some long needed changes so that the respect you deserve does not just happen when your child feels like it but rather at all times, even when your child feels otherwise.

Every day is new day… Just for today, be strong and stand up for your divine right as a mother to be treated with kindness and respect at all times. You will have to set this as a clear boundary with your child. Keep following the light on your career path; happiness, success and fulfillment will happen.


Dear Dawn...

After three years of separation, my husband wants to reconcile.  I am feeling very conflicted as to whether I should even consider it.  I am hoping you can guide me to understand what my heart is telling me.

Thank you. T.


Dear T.,

The guidance coming through is ultimately for you to give your marriage a chance to work out. I feel that your husband is sincere in his desire for reconciliation with you.

This is going to require the both of you to work on your issues together but with effort on both of your parts it can and will work out in the end.

I sense that you are feeling afraid to trust what it is that your heart truly desires which is the experience of happier times and even more passion with your husband after reconciling.

All of this is possible for you if you can forgive the mistakes you both made that caused the separation in the first place.

Through forgiveness you will make room in your heart to experience all of the new love and joy that is possible for you both being back together.

Forgiveness will also help to alleviate your fears which basically coming from the ego or personality part of ourselves. Your heart is asking you to make room for miracles which comes from our soul and what it needs to continue to evolve and grow.

I do believe you can benefit from counseling but I also am getting that what you need the most is to create a renewal of your love for each other. Allow yourselves to get to know each other as you are today and not who you were three years ago. This will serve you both in getting to know each other all over again and deepen your bond of friendship and love for each other.

The key here is start again slowly. Maybe go on dates again and allow yourself to be romanced. Try to keep the conversation light in the beginning with the intention of simply enjoying each other’s company and having some fun.

You will gradually start to grow closer as you do this and will have greater success at re-building the respect and trust that you need. The love is already there and trust and respect are something that is built over time.

I do see you together being very happy. I also see that by this summer you will both be in a much better place and reconciling from then on will feel natural to you and will feel like the only solution without any more confusion or doubt on your part.

Every day is a new day… Just for today open your heart to the miracle of forgiveness and allow the love you and your husband share to be renewed, one day at a time, which will also strengthen your feelings of trust and respect for one another. You have an amazing bond worth keeping and fighting for.
