As Valentine’s Day approaches, love is in the air and on the mind. You may find this season causes your soul to crave companionship and feel pulled to join with that one individual the Universe has created for you: your soulmate.
Every choice you make helps the Universe lead you into the relationship of your dreams. The “real” goal as you manifest your soulmate is to prepare yourself to receive that which the Universe has already created for you.
When you nurture yourself by working on the deeper issues of forgiveness, appreciation, intention, and openness, you make room for magic to occur by allowing space for the Universe to hear your call.
Working these five steps will help you feel empowered to become a clean slate, ready and open for love.
1. Forgiving & Releasing Your Past
Knowing that your soulmate is on their way, you need to make room in your life and your heart for them. One of the most powerful processes you can do for self-care and positive manifestation is to forgive and release all that has come before. What you resist persists. Forgive the past loves who have hurt you. More importantly, you must forgive your past self for poor judgment, poor choices in relationships, or anything you have done to cause harm. Your past has shaped you; your relationships have shaped you, your loves have shaped you, and your mistakes have shaped you – but they don’t own you.
2. Appreciating What You Have
If you want to manifest your soulmate, acknowledge all the other blessings in your life before asking for more. Gratitude allows us to reframe our thoughts to focus on what we have instead of what we don’t. If you train your mind to be grateful for all the beautiful things you already have in your life, you will always have what you want, and be more in tune to be able to manifest the things that you desire to bring into your life. Try beginning and ending every day by expressing your gratitude for one thing in your life. It’ll train your mind to open up to all the blessings you already have.
(Gratitude for your challenges or the things in your life that you might label as “bad” is one of the quickest ways to shift your energy and attract positive manifestation into your life!)
3. Focusing on What You Want, Not What You Don’t
Be very clear on what you want and don’t want. Take some time to meditate and understand precisely the person that you want to manifest as your soulmate. Ask yourself what traits your soulmate could have that are complementary to who you are and who you are becoming, and what things would blend to create a wonderful life together for you both. Once you are absolutely clear about what you want, reflect on the opposite. Know your desires as much as what you would like to avoid. Then set your intention and always focus on what you do want, rather than what you don’t want. Remember that like attracts like, and what we focus on expands, so keep your mind in the light!
4. Falling in Love With Yourself
It is entirely natural to want to have a fulfilling relationship with your soulmate and experience love in that fashion. But when manifesting your soulmate, it is essential to fall in love with yourself first! You are as deserving of your love as your soulmate is. Loving yourself well and falling in love with who you are breeds confidence. That confidence is deeply attractive to everyone in your life, and it will be especially attractive to your soulmate when they arrive. Appreciate all your positive aspects, talents and gifts. Send them your love and gratitude.
But also allow yourself to focus on things that you don’t like about yourself or would like to grow or change. You are going to send these areas love and light. Instead of resentment, how can you find and grow a sense of love for these areas? Loving your past challenges, resentments and dislikes are where you can affect the quickest changes in your life.
5. Being Open to Receive
Finally, self-love requires being open to receive love. The universe only reads vibrations. The vibrations of resistance and doubt repel, whereas hope and faith attract.
Love comes to us in so many forms. Learning to wholeheartedly embrace the love that is already in your life right now will program you to be open to the possibility of love anywhere around you. Expect that the best is yet to come.
The Universe is ready to unite you with your soulmate in unbelievable happiness. The relationship of your dreams will move swiftly towards you. You’ll move into it with a spirit of forgiveness. You’ll have an infectious sense of gratitude as the basis of the healthy love you’ll find. You’ll focus on positive desires, and define things in terms of what you want rather than what you don’t. You’ll continue to fall in love with yourself daily, and find that it is the overflow of this love that we can share with others and use to build loving relationships. May your new practice of self-love manifest the soulmate of your dreams!
