Before you can captivate the heart of your true love, you first have to find that true love. This quest seems easy for some and challenging for others; we might go years without finding a person with whom we connect to on a deep and devoted level. However, love is all around us in many forms, and we often miss it because we are looking in the wrong place for it.
Tuning your instincts to look for the right kind of love in the right place is essential for your health and happiness. If you know where to look and what kind of love you need, you’ll be that much closer to finding someone you consider to be your soulmate.
Here are a few ways you can practice attracting your soulmate and trusting your own instincts at the same time:
- Visualize the person you want to be with. This can be a challenge, since most of us are still figuring out who we are and who we want to be. However, there are qualities you know you want your life partner to have. Write these characteristics down and keep them in your mind; part of having this list is actually sticking to it. By visualizing who you want to be with and then actually seeking those people out, you set yourself up for success in love.
- Find peace within yourself. Sometimes this can mean taking a step back and breathing in and out. Find your center, your zen, or your happy place. Recognize the health and strength inherent within you. You are perfect, you are enough, and you are worthy of love from yourself and from others. If you can, dedicate ten minutes or more a day to quietly meditating on your own. This time can give you some much needed mental and physical space away from other people, and give you the chance to really focus on who you are and what your body needs.
- Pay attention to your surroundings.P We often pass coincidences off as just that- random happenstance. However, the universe has strange ways of working, and we could be missing out on love by not paying attention to who is around us. If you find yourself around a certain person or feel drawn to them for no apparent reason, pay attention! This could be the universe showing you someone special who has been right under your nose this whole time. This person could very well be out of your comfort zone, too, which is always a place of learning and growing.
- Be aware of yourself. We don’t give our bodies and minds nearly as much attention as they need. Pay attention to your physical self when you are around others- do they excite you, or do you clam up and pull away? Our physical reactions can occur subconsciously, but we owe it to ourselves to pay attention to these physical triggers our bodies are displaying for us.
There is so much we can do to attract love into our lives. Think of these four ways you can improve your life and find what works for you. You may just find love in the least expected place!
