The Law of Attraction states that you will attract to you those people, events and experiences that match your state of being. If you focus on having gratitude for the love, companionship and joy you have in your life right NOW, you will attract more of that into your life. If you focus on what you don’t have, you will send out a message of lack and you will attract more lack into your life.

In the movie conversations with God, the character Neale says to God, I just want my life back. And God says to Neale, You can’t have anything that you want. They then have an entire dialogue where God explains to Neale that by ‘wanting something (or someone)’ all you get to have is the experience, the feeling of ‘wanting.’

As part of the preparation to manifest your soul mate I suggest that you begin the process of “living as if.” This means that your daily actions become congruent with your beliefs. For instance, I once heard a story about the great actress Della Reese. During the time she was waiting for her soul mate to arrive, she would set a place at the table for him each time she had a meal. Eventually, he arrived. Della had sent a clear message to the Universe and the Universe delivered.

Next time you are shopping for greeting cards, begin to buy some that express your love and joy for your beloved knowing that someday you will give them to him or her. Are there things for your home you are waiting to buy (or hoping that you will someday get as wedding gifts)? Buy them now! Imagine that you have been selected to host a King or Queen. What would you need to do to prepare your home? New sheets? Towels? Dishes? Plant a garden? Clear the clutter? You’ll know when you really, really believe your soul mate is on the way because creating the space for them in all areas of your life will become a priority.

The period of time when you are waiting for your soul mate to arrive offers an important opportunity for self-reflection. Consider this: If your soul mate had the ability to see your life right now, would you (and they) be happy with what they were observing? Are there things you would change once they arrive? Begin to live your life today AS IF they are already here. This may mean that you give up casual sex with your ex-lover or neighbor.

Remember, the process of attracting your soul mate is one of magnetism. When you make the choice to live as if your soul mate is already a part of your life, you send out an irresistible signal to the Universe that you are ready now. (As opposed to sending the signal that you’ll be ready someday – when you work less and your house is clean and you’ve lost ten pounds). Remember the famous line in the 1989 movie, Field of Dreams .starring Kevin Costner? “If you build it, they will come.” Living “as if “ is like flipping on a light switch inside your heart. This is the light your beloved will use to navigate his or her way to your door.
