5 Ways To Use The Law Of Attraction In Long-Distance Relationships
Being in a long-distance relationship is increasingly common—perhaps in part because of increasing willingness to travel for work and in part because all of our technological advances make it easier to maintain a relationship without as much in-person contact.
Nevertheless, being apart from your beloved definitely comes with plenty of challenges, and creative thinking is required to maintain that crucial spark. Here are five ways to use the Law of Attraction as a tool to help you stay close to your partner across the miles.
1. Make A Relationship Dream Board
As you probably know, dream boards are visual representation of your aims and goals. As a result, you can use them to illustrate your hopes for your relationship. A cork board is ideal, allowing you to use pins to attach items.
Choose magazine cutouts that represent the love you want to maintain, put up inspirational quotes related to successful long-distance relationships, and feel free to add your own artwork or photographs as well.
Place the board in a prominent location, and look at it often. You can also work with your partner to create two of these boards—one for each of you.
2. Create Positive Lists
When you’re fighting fears about relationship success or sadness related to feelings of loneliness, Law of Attraction advocates would suggest that you try to tackle this underlying negativity.
One way to do this is to make a list of ten things that you like most about your relationship, or ten of your happiest memories of times spent with your partner. You might also write down ten of your most positive beliefs about your relationship (e.g. that you’re always honest with each other and that you work hard to show appreciation).
These lists, like your dream board, can be placed somewhere where they’re easily seen, or they could be kept in your wallet or briefcase to look at whenever you need a reminder that bolsters feelings of hope.
3. Design Relationship Affirmations
Ideal affirmations for long-distance relationships include “we may be apart, but our hearts are as one” and “our love is strong and we will be together again soon.” These affirmations can be recited at night before going to bed, or said first thing in the morning to set you up for a positive day.
Consider saying them into the mirror to maximize their impact. If your partner is also open to the idea that the Law of Attraction can be used to shape beliefs and attitudes, you might also consider designing affirmations together (perhaps based around terms of endearment that you like).
4. Practice Creative Visualizations Of Love
If you’ve been using the Law of Attraction for a while now, you’re likely well-versed in the art of using creative visualizations to build up a detailed image of your ideal life. You can easily turn this technique towards your relationship, focusing on creative visualizations of you and your partner.
You might want to picture what life will be like when you can finally live together (down to all the sights and sounds of a shared home), or you might want to recreate an image of one of your most loving moments—perhaps an airport reunion or a first kiss.
Once again, all the better if you can share this idea with your partner, encouraging them to visualize as well. It can be especially romantic to agree on a time of day when you’ll both be inhabiting the same creative visualization.
5. Hold Onto Objects That Represent Your Love
Any item that you associate with positive memories and feelings about your relationship can be used to help you stay optimistic and happy about your love. Handwritten letters, favorite mementos from vacations, plane tickets and meaningful pieces of jewelry are all great examples.
Think of the best ways to use these to keep you feeling continuously in tune with your best thoughts and convictions about the relationship.
Whether you sleep with a special stone under your pillow, wear an engraved necklace every day or like to hold onto a photograph while you do your creative visualizations, you’re doing something concrete to keep yourself feeling connected with your partner.
