Six Visualization Exercises For Finding Love (That You Haven’t Tried Before)
If you’re looking to find love using the Law of Attraction, it’s likely that you’ve already tried all the basic visualization techniques. However, if you’re looking to increase your chances of success, there are several more creative approaches that are worth trying.
Try the following six visualization exercises to help boost your manifestation abilities and attract the right person into your life.
1. The Pink Balloon
This is a simple but powerful visualization technique you can use as you’re falling asleep at night.
As you start to feel sleepy and begin to draft away, imagine a pink balloon (representing love) slowly inflating with your intentions to manifest love. Then picture letting the balloon go, allowing it to drift up into the universe and find the one who is right for you.
2. Visualize Through Writing
Most love visualization exercises encourage you to hone in on a vivid image of what it’s like to be with your beloved. However, to make these mental pictures as clear as they can, you need a maximally coherent idea of what your true love will be like.
If you waver on the details, you send out mixed signals to the universe, and it’s harder to manifest what you really desire. Think of the process as akin to ordering from a catalogue—if you send in an unreadable order form or one with conflicting requests, you’ll get nothing back, or (perhaps worse) something you don’t want!
Visualizing through writing helps to ask the universe for something clear and real. First, get a pen and paper and write down all the qualities you want your soul mate to have—good sense of humor, love of animals, great parenting skills, sharp wit… keep going until you have a complete picture of their traits.
Next, write down a second list of all the things you want to experience in your relationship (such as compassion, empathy, laughter, patience, and excitement). You’ve now created something solid, and the next time you do any mental visualization exercise you can try to make sure all of these traits and experiences are somehow captured in your imagined scenario.
3. Open Your Heart By Opening Doors
You may have tried a visualization exercise that involves opening your heart by focusing on the center of your body. However, a more metaphorical approach can also be very powerful.
For example, visualize yourself standing in front of a door—imagine the door in detail, ensuring it represents your hope and excitement about the future. Then picture yourself opening the door, and seeing your destined other half waiting on the other side.
4. Align Hopes With Expectations
This visualization exercises helps you to see whether you’re really fully committed to the idea of finding your soulmate. Once you’re sitting with your eyes closed in a calm and quiet place, begin by imagining the type of person and relationship you would like to have in six months.
Allow yourself to fully inhabit that image for a few minutes. Then, clear your mind and begin to imagine the type of person and relationship you expect to have in six months.
Is what you expect different from what you’d like to have? If so, why? A mismatch in your two visualizations suggests that you’re not yet “living in the knowing” that your perfect love is possible.
To start exclusively tuning into the vision of the relationship you really want, imagine your less pleasant, “expected” relationship fading from view (some people imagine it turning black and white, while others find it cathartic to see the image dissolve before their eyes).
You might even want to place a wall around these negative expectations in your mind, or box them up and imagine them being shelved for good.
5. Visualizing Through Music
The idea here is simply to find a song that immediately triggers the deep and intense feelings of love that you hope to enjoy with your soul mate. Every time you listen to this, allow your mind to generate a montage of gorgeous images that reflect the relationship you know you can have. Repeat this process by listening to “your song” at least once a day.
6. Mentally Clear Obstacles
Finally, what are your obstacles to finding love? What limiting beliefs have held you back? Visualize a mental representation of these obstacles, and find a cathartic way to get rid of them. For example, you might burn the symbolic objects in your mind’s eye, put them in water, write them down and ball them up, or crush them underfoot.
Feel peaceful, determined and certain of your own success as you do this exercise. Regardless of how you mentally clear obstacles from your path, doing so sends a message to the universe that you’re ready to move on and manifest the love you desire.
