Why Finding Love is Possible at Any Age

Finding love can seem impossible, as if we’re up against an unbeatable clock. But true love is out there and is attainable at any age or stage of our lives.

Is it your dream to find a soulmate? A life-partner who will love, cherish and adore you?

As someone who didn’t meet and marry my soulmate until I was 44, I learned a lot along the way about what does and doesn’t work in the world of love and romance.  

Here’s what I know for sure: finding true love is possible for any one at any age if you’re willing to prepare your self, on all levels, to become a magnet for love.

This wonderful Universe of ours is set up to deliver the people and things we draw to us that our consistent with our personal belief system.  If you don’t believe you will ever find The One, then, guess what? You get to be right…you probably won’t.  

If, however, you learn to believe that The One is not only out there but is also looking for you, then true love can be yours.

When I was in my early 40s I decided to manifest my soulmate using everything I had ever learned about manifestation, psychology, spirituality and the Law of Attraction. My intentions became crystal clear while I simultaneously cleared out the clutter in my house and in my heart. I learned and invented techniques, rituals, visualizations and prayers that helped me prepare my body, mind, spirit and home for an amazing relationship. And they worked. I met my husband, Brian, who has exceeded all of my desires and expectations. He was and is everything I ever wished for.   

What if I told you that it’s not your job to know how your soulmate is going to appear? What if I told you it’s only your job to be ready, willing and open to love. Think about it this way: you really don’t know where air comes from but you do believe that it’s always there for you, right?

The same is true for love. It’s there for you. It’s always been there for you. You just need to remember the love that you are and once you do, the Universe will deliver to you the perfect soulmate.  

The basic Law of Attraction states that you will attract to you those things that match your state of belief. 

Believing that your soulmate is out there is critical to the preparation of manifestation.

I believe that the Universe is always mirroring back to us our beliefs about our selves and the world. If we believe the world is a loving and friendly place, then most of the time that will be our experience. But, if we believe the world is a chaotic, stressful and fearful place, then that becomes our reality. So, believing and knowing that your soulmate is out there is the most important part of the formula.   

Prior to meeting Brian 10 years ago, I had a daily ritual in which I would light several candles at sunset, put on my favorite CD of Gregorian chants and sit in my big, cozy chair. With my eyes closed I would drop into the feeling of remembering the joy of having my soulmate in my life. I would experience these wonderful feelings in every part of my body knowing that he was on the way. There were days when the thought that he was very late did cross my mind, but I would just let those thoughts go and get back into a state of grace….feeling and knowing that his arrival was assured. large horizontal af-7wk-10-2013-728x90 (1)

To manifest your soul mate here are the 10 top things to do and remember:  

  • Be the loving person that you are. Find ways to express more love to everyone in your life. 
  • Live in the knowingness that you are in a loving, committed relationship.  
  • Live that truth every day as you savor the waiting for your beloved to arrive.
  • Create a “vision map” of your romantic vision and look at it daily.
  • Write a list of the most important qualities your soul mate will possess.
  • Heal your heart of any past hurts that will prevent you from magnetizing big love. 
  • Clear out the clutter in your home and create space for your beloved (especially in your closets).
  • Create an altar in the relationship corner of your home.
  • Listen to your intuition to take action when opportunities present themselves.
  • Fall in love with yourself. Know that you are lovable.

Big love is possible for any one of any age if you are willing to become a magnet for love. Continue to live each day in the knowingness that you are in a loving, committed relationship as you savor the waiting for your beloved to arrive.
