Dean & Angella 'Harmony Couple'

Where East and West Meet

Category: Our Personal Journey

Did we use the law of attraction to find each other? The truth is this.

We often get asked if we used the law of attraction to find each other and so we will tell you the truth here:

Part of the reason we wrote our bookRomance in Cyberspace was to give people the answer to this question but in the book we don’t just answer it we actually tell the story of what we both did, what we both thought before and after we met and how it came to be that two complete strangers from very different backgrounds eventually came together in love and we let you decide for yourself.

Law of Attraction in love Dean and Angella

You see many couples where the woman is from Thailand and the man is from the West be it England, America or Australia ( in this case Dean was from England but lived in Australia) meet because the man will go to Thailand on holiday and fall in love with a pretty Thai girl half his age and then take her back to his country to get married. There are many stories of this scenario, many of which don’t turn out to be too good…but that’s another story.

The other scenario is they meet on some dating site and pretty much the same thing happens. This is the normal way and you will most likely have heard many of the horror stories out there too. This is not really the law of Attraction at work in a positive way…it is still at work but in a more negative way.

Ok, so on with the post because in this case non of that happened. Also Angella is almost the same age as Dean and neither were actually looking for each other…or at least they were not consciously aware of that.

You see when you know what both Dean and Angella did before they met and also right at the beginning of their meeting online you will probably decide they were both using the law of attraction. Things like writing down their ideal partner, removing emotional blocks from past relationships and dreaming of and even visualizing the type of relationship they both wanted, believing it would happen but then detaching from the outcome by getting on with life are all techniques that the Guru law of Attraction experts say you should do. However, none of this was actually done with quite that purpose in mind.

Another funny thing is that Dean was actually quite ‘au fait’ with the law of attraction but did not have the purpose to use it to find a woman as he did not think it would happen for a few years. He wrote down his idea of his perfect partner, even had a picture in his mind as well as the kind of emotion he wanted to feel but then he let go of all expectation and wanting…. which is classic detachment and law of attraction of attraction Dean Hopkins

loaAngella had very little learned knowledge of the law of attraction because in Thailand although the book “The Secret” was available the law of attraction was not a widely known concept and of course it was initially all in English. Yet she had instinctively been using those techniques for years in her life without knowing what they were called. She had a firm belief in her heart and mind that Mr Right would find her and she again practiced detachment by not expecting and Mr right did in fact find her…..although the exact circumstances were somewhat of a surprise, but you will need to read the story to find out what happened there.

So what this means is that both Angella and Dean did use the law of attraction but not purposely to find each other which allowed them to be slightly detached from the outcome. Both acted mainly on intuition and by following their heart which is of course all part of the law of attraction, and when they finally did confess their feelings for each other they took inspired action to make things happen in reality.

So does the law of attraction work in love and relationships? It sure does and you can take plenty from Our Story to show you the best way to apply it and find love for yourself. But we have found the key to this is in taking action especially if you meet online like we did. You need to make things happen that will move the relationship forward. To often we hear of people meeting online and they take too long to meet each other and then it all fizzles out and that is so sad. How many opportunities for love are lost that way?

We both wish you love, hope and inspiration in attracting a loving and fulfilling relationship.

Dean and Angella November 21st 2011

As we prepare this site for launch and public publication we realize a lot has happened since our first meeting over 2 years ad go now in October 2009.

Dean and Angella settle down in Perth 2011

We are finally in a position where we no longer have to spend agonizing times apart due to visa’s running out and the need to get back to our own countries. We have for the moment settled in Australia and whilst we don’t intend to stay here permanently it is our homebase for now.

Angella has successfully migrated to Perth, Australia with her youngest son and we now live in a comfortable house albeit temporary as we build up our business together and plan the stage of our life journey.

And journey it is and has been!

But this is not the time to tell our story you can read about that in another place. The thing is we realize how difficult it is not only to find love but to keep it and if like us you come from different countries and different cultures and have been married before with children then the whole thing can really be quite complicated…..and it makes it easy to lose hope and give up.

There is a saying….“Winners never Quit and Quitters never Win” and it is so true. This saying applies not only to business, sport and other achievements but also to love and relationships. We know this first hand because many a time we could have just walked away because it was all too hard and you know no-one would have blamed us…

Except ourselves that is……

You know there is a funny thing about love…… can be easier to walk away than to stay in it. Because staying in it means commitment and the courage to face many challenges not just in your life but within yourself. At times it might have been easier for both of us to walk away and go back to our own lives. As much as we love each other some of the difficulties we have faced could easily have torn us apart.

But when we face difficulty, when we have courage to be true to our heart and follow it’s guidance it is amazing how it can lead you into the most amazing places you ever dreamed of.

And that is where we are right now!



The Coffee Cup Fortuneteller

Can someone really read your future from a coffee cup?

Angella with Lanka Coffee Cup FortunetellerThere is a woman in Perth who can read your future by getting you to drink from a special cup of coffee and reading the pictures that the thick residue leaves on the inside of the cup. We have been to see her a number of times now over the past 2 years and can report some very interesting experiences.


She is surprisingly accurate but……

The thing with this particular woman is that we have been to see her quite a few times now and she is remarkably accurate in her reading if you can just filter her opinions. We always recommend that you take more notice of the first few things she says when she sees a picture and not what she begins to reinforce afterwards with her own opinion because like all things spiritually psychic it works on intuition and not the conscious mind.

With that said it is interesting how many things have been correct even when we didn’t know it. For example Angella went to see this woman when she was in Australia 6 months before we actually met in 2009 and she did foretell that Angella would meet a man from Europe and he would surprise her in some way. She also spoke of a choice she would have to make and even more remarkably that the right man would have a hat from his country.

Is it just clever psychology though?

Now we do tell about this story in our book but the fact is that Dean is from England (even though living in Australia) and when we first met he did have a hat with him that had England on it. He also surprised Angella by making the decision to go and see her in Thailand very quickly after we had confessed growing feelings for each other.

coffee cup fortuneteller Dean and Angella siteWith that said it is also curious to wonder how she can actually tell things about our future from the residue left by coffee in a coffee cup. There is a lot skepticism about these things especially from the more scientific based community who prefer absolute evidence of how these things work. Many naysayers will say it’s just psychology and that she almost cold reads people telling them what they want to hear and the rest is the psychology of the person interpreting things to fit the picture they really want.

That is certainly plausible but even with the writers extensive knowledge of human psychology we are left wondering can a 68  year old Macadonian woman really have such extensive knowledge of pyschology, hypnosis and cold reading to be able to dupe intelligent people in that way ? Yes she does add her opinion to things but that is very easy to recognize and filter during the reading, in fact it is important to be aware enough to do this and not take her opinions as the truth or the message but the signs she gets.

So how does this stuff work?

Our very basic analysis and suggestion is that the the coffee cup and coffee is just a tool, a method if you like of interpreting and delivering information that is recieved from the ethereal dimension. She is just an instrument a receiver who has a particular method to  get the information, others use tarot cards, others use tea leaves, palms and many other such methods, her method as strange as it may seem is coffee.

So where does the information come from?

It comes from us!

Spiritual body on Dean and AngellaIf you can imagine when you sit in front of her sipping on your coffee your physical body is there but so is also your spiritual body or your energy if you like. Some people call this the aura. Along with all that spiritual energy that our eyes cannot see is all the information about you as you are connected on a different level to the spiritual field, universe, zero point filed or quantum resonance field as more scientific follower are refering to it these days, and that field is vibrating with energetic information about you, past, present and dare I say it but future as well.

The reader has a particular intiutive ability to pick up on this energy information and receive it and then intepret it as signs and then deliver those signs to you. You might be able to see now where you can get good and bad readers because it is the purity of reading the signs that is important and not adding their own pyschological/egoical interpretation and also the reaction they get from you that is important.

It’s nothing new really

History tells us that this type of practice has been around for millennia all over the world. From Ancient Egyptian rituals to Greek astrology, tarot reading and the IChing divination and prophecy has been an integral part of human culture. It’s just that in more recent years Science, The Church and Industry has taken precedence especially in the West.

Without wishing to cause an argument and with utmost respect the fact is religious controllers outlawed much of these belief’s and practices for centuries and fuelled much of the skepticism we have today in the West. We seem to have cycles of resurgence in more escoteric and spiritual viewpoints only to see so called rational thinking suppress it into seeming stupid, childish and unrealistic.

Asia is more positive

praying to budhhaWhat is interesting is that Asia has been relatively unaffected by this skepticism as much of history’s oppression of such matters has been centred in Europe. This is why when you travel to Asia you see spiritual practice, belief and respect on a daily basis with no real scientific explanations required. It is accepted as an integral part of their culture and life.

But the West has been changing again in recent years. As the scientific community begins to draw closer to spiritual ideas that are now backed up with scientific evidence more and more people are admitting their interest in metaphysical matters. It would see that in fact many people actually want there to be something in it all as it gives hope to something more in life.

Is there something in it?

Having had many experiences between us both in Asia and the West we have both come to believe that there is something in it. It’s hard to deny the accuracy of the coffee cup readings as well as other readings we have had. Wishful thinking aside even some of the negative things have been true.

For us we will continue to have these experiences and continue to research, learn and experience this amazing life and all it has to offer.


2 hearts 2 years 2 Day

It was 2 years 2 day on October 22 that we first met and 2day is our anniversary….lol. Do you see we have a slight interest in the number 2…..well 22 actually but we do have a love of numerology and this number has been very focal and positive in our life.

Dean and Angella and number 22

We are so happy right now to celebrate our anniversary especially as we are now together on a permanent basis.

It is a strange feeling sometimes to know that we no longer need to worry about visa’s running out, time running out and trips to the airport to say our goodbyes until next time. Sometimes next time has not been confirmed and so it takes a lot of strength to face those moments.

But now we have passed that stage…that stage we thought would never pass. The saying all things must surely come to pass is so very very true but at the time it seems a lifetime away.

We know there must be many other couples out there who have similar situations, who have to be apart, who don’t know when they will be able to meet again or even meet for the first time. You have a love, you have a hope and a dream for the future but your present does not support it. We know, we have been there and we know how hard it can be.

What we can say is you must keep your faith and belief. If your love is meant to be then it will happen but you need to show you are worthy and have the strength to own it. Sometimes you must be prepared to pay the price and love is no different really. Everyone believes love should be so easy that once you find “The One” then everything will be allright.

Dean and Angella anniversary

It doesn’t quite work that way is what we have learned but it can work out and it can be as wonderful as you hope it will be.

We hope that our celebration can give you hope and if you would like to read more then read our post over at our other site as we talk even more about this topic.


For now wherever you are in the world and whatever your situation is, we wish you love, hope and inspiration for the future.
