If you think that using positive thinking to attract what you want is too good to be true, think again. As someone who used to doubt the validity of the Law of Attraction, I have come to learn that the demonstration works. I will steal that needle from my mother as a little girl and consider myself as one of the writers. And here I am today, bringing you this story and getting paid to do what I love. I presented it unknowingly, but if wonder has entered your life, you probably have too.
According to contemporary expert Rhonda Byrne, manifestation is about putting your intentions into the universe and waiting to receive them in anticipation. This builds upon the principle of the Law of Attraction, which states that what you think is what you create. From this point of view, there is no limit to what you can bring into your life – whether it’s a dream job, more money, or even that special someone.
That being said, if you’re wondering how to start manifesting your true relationship, you’ve come to the right place. With these six simple steps and practical tips, you can make your dream partner into your life. Keep reading to learn how.
How to show someone in your life
1. Select who you want to display
When it comes to dating someone, you first need to find out what your ideal partner is like. Think and write down everything you want in a partner, including what kind of person you want them to be, what their interests are, and everything in between. Nothing is forbidden. Then, go through the list and identify the qualities that are most important to you. You may think you want to date an entrepreneur but know that you really need someone who will be around to support your dreams. Or, you may find that you need someone who makes you laugh more than anything. Either way, knowing exactly who you want to impress will make it easier for them to enter your life.
2. Journal about who you want to present
Once you know who you want to feature, you can write about them. This can be done by writing positive affirmations, listing the qualities of your future partner, or writing your affirmations several times a day. Regardless of the presentation method you choose, it is important that you define it and write down everything that is present. For example, instead of writing “I want…” write: “I am looking for someone who is kind to others, makes me laugh, and likes to travel as much as I do.”
Writing in the present tense will also appear on your display will do do that is do-not with you wanted it will happen. This also goes for speaking. Talking about your ideal partner as if they are already in your life will make it easier for you to find them. Your words hold power, so use them carefully.
3. Make a social vision board
It’s also good to make a complete vision board of romantic relationships like you. This can include romantic dinners to have, places to travel, activities to do together, engagement rings to give or receive, dream homes to share, and things like again. Entering into a vision will help support the exact type of person and life you want, which will make it easier for you to manifest with your mind’s eye. Seeing is believing, after all.
That being said, don’t be afraid to keep your vision board where you won’t see it. It may seem silly, but this will allow you to let go of the person you are trying to impress, which is the main thing that gives them the opportunity and energy to come in. Remember: You want to keep them where you have them—not that you need them.
4. Look at your life with them
Visualization is a great tool for presentation because it makes your goals feel tangible. Take time each day—even just three minutes—to sit quietly, close your eyes, and envision your life with that special someone. Think of all the things you will do together, whether it is traveling, getting married, having children, buying a house, etc. Be true to yourself in every situation, and allow yourself to truly feel. For example, if you are having dinner in Mykonos, feel the breeze from the Aegean Sea on your body and taste the salt from the olives on your tongue as you look across the table at the person unique body.
5. Believe that you deserve them
If you really want to show true love, it’s important that you believe you deserve it. For example, if you say “I never seem to have good luck with partners” you will be showing a bad point in your love life. So take some time to go inside and do some self-reflection. This can be done through deep breathing, meditation, yoga, or reflective journaling; try to identify any self-limiting beliefs about love. Allow yourself to sit with these beliefs and realize they are false, and say adieu to them for good. Taking the time to raise your vibration will lead you to a place where you are ready to receive the person you are looking for. Likewise, seeking help with daily self-love affirmations can also be beneficial because they will remind you exactly how ripe you are for that kind of love once in a lifetime.
6. Be realistic
Fortunately, sitting down and talking about your dream partner doesn’t mean they’re going to ring your doorbell the next day – you still have to work for them. So take action and put yourself out there. Sign up for a dating site that matches what you’re looking for, let your friends set you up, and gain the confidence to ask someone you think is attractive. Sign up for a clay class if you want your partner to practice; Join a group of lovers if you are looking for someone outside. And most importantly: Really go on a date!
In the meantime, keep working to become the best version of yourself. Being able to advocate for yourself will make it easier for you to engage with another person and have a fulfilling relationship when the time comes. Focus on doing more things that feed your soul, build self-love, and let go of things that no longer serve you (think: a nightmare that leaves you questioning all of life’s choices ‘tomorrow). The timeline is different for everyone, but do the work and trust the manifesting process; when the time is right, the universe will send you exactly who you are looking for.
