6 Law of Attraction Exercises That Can Help Your Relationship
If you are just starting to learn about the Law of Attraction, you are probably focusing on how it might be used to enhance the most important parts of your life. As a result, you may naturally start considering whether the Law of Attraction can help to strengthen your marriage.
Are you interested in improving communication, creating more intimacy or tackling areas of conflict? Here are some useful exercises that can help you to start using the Law of Attraction to make a positive difference to your relationship.
Exercise 1: Use Creative Visualization (Together Or Apart)
If your spouse understands the Law of Attraction and is willing to participate in a visualization exercise, the results may be more powerful than they would be if you did the exercise alone. However, creative visualization is incredibly effective no matter how many people are visualizing the chosen outcome.
Set aside a particular time of day when you feel relaxed and receptive, and spend 5-30 minutes visualizing how you would like the relationship to be. Picture the relationship as happy and close, imagining that your current difficulties have been overcome. You can also tailor the visualization to suit your particular problems, whether those relate to sex, mutual understanding or a sense of having grown apart.
Exercise 2: Work On Rejecting Your Inner Critic
Most people who are in the beginning stages of using the Law of Attraction report encountering problems when trying to stay relentlessly positive. Specifically, you may have an ‘inner critic' that whispers negative, critical things about you and your relationship, and this inner critic may prompt you to be negative in conversation as well.
To get the most from your affirmations and creative visualizations, you will need to work on reducing negative thoughts about your spouse and your marriage and focus on believing that you really can improve the relationship.
Try making a daily list of five pleasant interactions that you've had with your spouse or five positive thoughts you've entertained about the relationship. In time, this habit helps to reshape the way you think about your relationship and helps you harness the real power of the Law of Attraction.
Exercise 3: Recite Affirmations Before Spending Time Together
Affirmations help to transform your mindset, cultivating positive beliefs and emotions, and you can design them to reflect what you want to achieve. Once again, this exercise can be done alone or you can encourage your spouse to create their own affirmations. For example, if you and your partner are struggling to avoid bickering, you might try saying “I will be compassionate and patient with my spouse today.”
Alternatively, you might look at yourself in the mirror before going on a date and say an affirmation like “I am a loving, open person and I am going to have a wonderful time tonight.” These affirmations can change your habits and help you focus on nurturing the good in your relationship.
Exercise 4: Use Stones And Crystals Connected To Love
Depending on their meaning, specific stones can be used when trying to use the Law of Attraction to improve your marriage. You don't need to be an expert on healing crystals to benefit from this exercise, and there are many stones that are strongly connected to love.
For example, Shiva lingams are Indian stones that represent romantic union and togetherness. Meanwhile, eye agate and fire opal are linked to physical intimacy and sex drive. You might want to place one of these stones near the bed you share with your spouse or carry one in your pocket to remind you of the things you need to do to meet your goals. Some people also benefit from placing a relevant stone in the palm of their hand during a creative visualization session.
Exercise 5: Start Keeping A Journal
First, find a notepad or journal that connects you with your happier thoughts about your relationship. It might be a book with a peaceful nature scene on the front, or its colors could remind you of the color themes you chose for your wedding. Next, make your ideal relationship with your spouse more concrete by writing about it in the journal.
Describe how things would be between you if you overcome your problems, including vivid descriptions of your fantasies, and be sure to note down the types of images you see in your visualizations. You might also want to chronicle all of your marital joys and any turning points that you reach with your spouse.
By keeping this journal as a safe and positive space for your ideas, you sharpen your focus on your goals and increase your ability to use the Law of Attraction more effectively. Anytime you feel down or worry that you cannot meet your relationship goals, return to this journal to receive a hefty dose of encouragement.
Exercise 6: Dream Of The Future With Your Spouse
Finally, whether or not your spouse is interested in trying creative visualization, you can attract more positivity to your marriage by dedicating time to your hopes for the future. Consider spending at least an hour a week simply relaxing with your spouse and trading ideas about what would improve your life together.
For example, you might reminisce about the past and discuss how to rekindle the experiences you enjoyed in the early days of your relationship, or you could make a list of goals you want to meet within the next year. However, try to avoid criticizing each other or spending too much time on depressing thoughts about why the relationship has encountered difficulties.
If you struggle to avoid negativity, you might try spending time appreciating the present by discussing ten things that you love about each other (and explaining why those traits are so significant).
The main point of this type of exercise is to turn your shared attention to happy feelings, affection for one another and the belief that the relationship can succeed.
