How often have I been in similar situations!
In my early youth I have spent a considerable amount of time, in fact many months living outdoors in the mountains and forests, wandering from hilltop to hilltop, village to village. Often I lost the  trail  and ended up in nowhere land. The life lessons  those days have embedded in my memory  are shining gems of learning  how to read and trust intuition.
Somewhere deep inside of me I always knew whether I’m on the wrong or right  track, whether the road I’m on will bring me into the deep brush of despair and pain or whether the path I’m on will eventually lead me to the open plains, creeks and perfect camping sites. There were invisible signs on the way. Signs of spontaneous feelings in the guts caused  by an  animal crossing the track, or sudden sounds seeming to be synchronized to a thought I had in mind in the same precise moment. Often, negative signs where only a signal, a warning of “danger ahead” to prepare me to adjust to a challenge, but knowingly being on the “right” track.
 But interestingly, the times I have been on the right path, the  tracks often have been the most difficult ones, painful obstacles had to be overcome,  my endurance and commitment was tested half way to the goal. If I would have given up and backtracked to the origin I would have lost  days of journey. The happiness of the relieve of overcoming would not have been mine, instead only frustration and the weakening effect of giving into avoiding pain , looking for the easy way out. 
Yes, often like you I  have experienced the synchronicity of some wrong thought process, some negative mental track  manifesting in infinite difficulties on the outer path I was walking on. Isn’t walking on a nature trail making things so much more obvious and clear  which otherwise are hidden in the complexity of daily life .  
Often I found, managing myself  into the tight underbrush of a hopeless situation what I needed to do is stop. Stop and pray and focus into the calmness of the present moment. Completely allowing all the pain and despair to be felt inside of me. Maybe even spending  the night in the brush and waiting, waiting patiently for a change... opening up in heartfelt despair to the divine inner  guidance. And yes, I add my testimony to many others, almost like a miracle the next morning, the forward  path opened,  leading to the sunny plains of my destiny,  finding me running, even  sometimes dancing with a light heart into the gorgeous  morning light.
 Dancing into divinity.
Love 
Shantidev

Dear Avital,
Thank you for sharing. .. aren't relationships great opportunities for understanding all facets off our being so much clearer through the mirror effect in our partnership? ...and being forced out off our comfort zones

Wonderful, I'm specially interested how the Love aspect develops further in your experience...obviously the divine impersonal Love.
