Dating Over 40: The Evolution of an Affirmation – The Law of Attraction in Action

My matchmaker friend from Vermont, Nicole of Compatibles, sent me this quote today that sums up how affirmations transform to become your reality.  Based on the Universal Law of Attraction which states "Like Attracts Like," the idea is really pretty simple. In order for your dreams to become reality, you must BELIEVE it’s possible for them to do so. And then your belief, morphs to become a true part of your psyche.

"It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen." –Anonymous

In other words, your strong belief and deep conviction in the possiblity of love, magnetizes and draws it to you.

When I was dating, I found a small needle point pillow with the word "Believe" stitched into it. I placed it on my bed every day as the last touch of making it.  Looking at that pillow, I worked at believing, envisioning, that love would find me.  I admit there were times when I wondered.  But not for long.  I wouldn’t let myself indulge in this negative thinking.  That thinking had already kept me single for too many years.

The right man was out there for me.  I knew I had to make myself believe.  At first it felt silly and false  But with time, I started feeling that it was possible.  That I could find a good man and have a loving healthy relationship. And we finally did meet each other with the help of his sister and a mutual friend who introduced us!

Take time every day to start believing.  Draw this concept deep with you so that it becomes a strong conviction.  Consider that there is no other reason for you to be going through all the work of dating and meeting new people if it weren’t leading to this loving conclusion.  Imagine how it feels to be with the right man right now. Be grateful today, in this moment, that everything is falling into place. Know within your heart that this is true.

Wishing you love!
