Human beings are made for love. It’s awesome when you can share your life with someone you have a strong connection with and are attracted to physically. Everyone wants affection in their lives. So if you feel you are lacking in this area, and want to attract more love in your life, perhaps all you need to do is open yourself up to it.
Unfortunately, your love life can stall at any time whether you are in an existing relationship or embarking on a new one. But if you open your heart to love, you can attract more love into your life.
When I think about opening up to love, it reminds me of that movie, “He’s Just Not That Into You.” The main character in this romantic comedy tried so hard to find true love. But her love life was a series of one romantic blunder after another. Finally, at the end of the movie, she found love right under her nose after she opened herself up to it.
Love is one of the most exhilarating feelings we can ever experience. The emotion of love vibrates at the highest frequencies of all the emotions you can experience. That’s why you feel so energized when you fall in love. Love is the ultimate, healing emotion.
So it stands to reason, if we attract more love into our lives, we not only bring more happiness but more healing.
How To Attract More Love and Find Your Soulmate
At times we get so busy and focused on daily routines and responsibilities, we don’t pay attention to our love life all that much. You may have even reached a point where you have become complacent with the status quo. Suddenly you realize romance has taken a back seat in your life.
What if you could energize your love life and create a spark to attract more love into your life? By opening up to love, chances are, you’re more likely to attract more romance to you.
And if you are looking for your soulmate, opening yourself to love is essential to attracting that special someone that you feel a strong connection with.
If you’re ready to find true love or bring more romance into your life, here are a few ways to help you find that meaningful relationship.
5 Ways to Open Yourself To Love And Find Your Soulmate
1. Love When You’re Ready. Not When You’re Lonely.
The truth is you must first love yourself before you can truly love others. Man can only be what he sees himself to be. If you don’t love yourself, how can you expect others to like you?
Loving yourself initiates a vibration that attracts more loving situations to you. You may have heard of it referred to as the Law of Attraction. If we are focused on something, we have the ability to attract it into our lives.
Stop focusing on the negative! When you wake up and look in the mirror, tell yourself, “I love you.” If you want to make a change in your life, it begins with you. Fall in love with everything about you.
Be sure to speak highly of yourself. You are often your own worst critic. You feel you’re too old, ugly or fat for anyone to be attracted to you. When you speak negative about yourself, you attract negativity.
Start a new vibration of love and happiness by speaking the words out loud. “I am loving. I am happy. I am a beautiful person.” It impresses upon the subconscious mind that you are a wonderful human being.
2. Open Your Heart With The Energy Of Forgiveness.
Forgive yourself and all that you ever did. But don’t stop there. Forgive anyone who ever hurt you. Stop blaming yourself for past relationships that failed. Envision yourself and send love to that younger, more vulnerable image of you.
Don’t be so hard on yourself by blaming yourself for past transgressions; it blocks you from experiencing a loving relationship. It’s like putting up an energetic shield to protect your heart. It builds a wall that prevents love from entering.
Take a moment and think back to those traumatic experiences and forgive yourself. Send love to that vulnerable, younger you.
A certain level of release occurs just by bringing up old emotions you experienced in the past. If you can set free these emotions, the barrier begins to crumble around your heart. Once the protective wall has broken down, it allows more love to enter.
Be sure you forgive anyone who has ever hurt you. Harboring angry feelings towards someone else doesn’t hurt them as much as it cripples you.
Most likely that person has moved on. They are not aware you still harbor negative feelings towards them. It only becomes a burden to you, not them. If you are unable to forgive that other person, you are only harming yourself. Don’t build that wall around your heart to protect yourself from others. If you forgive yourself and others, then the love will flow.
3. Let Your Inner Child Come Out To Play.
Who says you have to grow up? Give yourself permission to open up and be playful. Let yourself go in mind, body, and spirit. Take the time to be playful, fun, and loving.
Too often we forget our playful side when we are bogged down with responsibilities. By giving ourselves permission to engage in the lighter side of life, we bring joy and pleasure into our lives.
4. Be Interested and Interesting!
I saw a quote recently that said, “Nothing compares to a beautiful conversation with a beautiful mind.”
If you want to be engaging with others, you need to be interested in something. Any interested person is an enthusiastic person. Being enthusiastic is like having a magnet attached to you. You are drawn to them, and they are attracted to you. People are captivated by passionate people.
Also, by not having any personal interests, you tend to gravitate towards other people’s affairs. You are energetically telling the universe that your life doesn’t hold enough interest. Why would anyone want to approach you?
Find something to be interested in and be enthusiastic about it. Others will take notice and be attracted to your beautiful mind!
5. Expect Love And Beautiful Things Will Happen.
If you’re not experiencing enough love in your life, expect to. When you shift your expectations, you change your conditions.
If you expect a lack of love and can’t imagine it ever happening to you, a habit begins to form. You develop a pattern of waiting for the lack of love and failure. We’ve all heard someone say, “It’s too good to be true.” This attitude will not attract anything positive.
But when you begin to act as if you expect happiness and greater love, beautiful things do happen. Prepare for it … and it will come.
Give yourself the perfect gift. Give yourself the gift of love by incorporating any or all of these five things. In time, Cupid will point his arrow at you, and you’ll attract more love in your life than you ever imagined.
