#2 BEING PRESENT and OPEN: When we are truly PRESENT in the moment, we are OPEN to meeting the love of our life.
Instead of planning out what we are going to say next, or worrying about how we look, active listening involves being 100% present and focused on the other person while they are speaking. When we are tapped into our Divinity, we know what to do, where to go, who to talk with, etc.The exterior suit a Soul wears (body type, profession, etc) are superficial and are not the source of future happiness. Back when I was a child, nothing was more fun in the summer than to go to the pool, or the lake, or the ocean - anywhere you could swim on a hot summer day.Whenever we went, my Mom would always make sure that my best friend could come with us.We tend to be attracted to people that we identify ourselves with.I wasn't looking for someone who would complete something I was missing; I was looking for someone who matched the best part of me: my Soulmate, a partner for lifetimes. I had found relationships, but they didn't have the spiritual element that I needed.We all have our divine counterpart, but where was I to find her?
I am a believer in love and while I believe that opposites can attract on the physical level, I also believe that the spiritual level is defined through resonance and alignment of frequencies.
Invariably, just before we ran off to dive in, my Mom would yell, "Remember the Buddy System! The idea is that since water can be dangerous, you needed a "buddy" who would look out for you while you looked out for them and, as a result, the pair of you would be safer than if each were swimming alone.(This did not mean that a pair of children could not get into more mischief than one alone, but at least we were safer while doing it…)As I grew older and reached new stages in life, I started to realize that it was more than just companionship in what I was pursuing as an ideal relationship.
I needed a "buddy", a special someone that would understand not only my physical and emotional needs, but my spiritual needs.
#4 BEING REAL: Being real means letting one’s guard down and getting out of ego; being oneself without trying to impress or show off.
By expressing our true selves, we send out that energy to the quantum field and magnetize a partner that is also being REAL!
I knew that the person that I want to spend the rest of my life with would not be someone I would probably meet in a singles bar and the regular dating sites proved no better.
