True love will not fall out of the sky and land in your lap without significant effort on your part.
So, if you are really serious about finding the one who will love you like you have never been loved before, care for you like you have never been cared for before, and be one of the best gifts the universe has ever given you, then you need to be proactive and ask the universe for exactly what you want in a partner.
And by this, I do not mean shallow wants like he should have six-pack abs or she should sing like a nightingale.
I am referring to non-negotiable personality traits that you require in a romantic partner to feel happy and content in a relationship.
Traits like honesty, reliability, ambition, and more.
But a plain list of traits isn’t going to cut it either.
Because to manifest something in your life, you must believe with absolute certainty that it is already yours.
And how do you do that?
By writing stories as if it has already happened.
As if you are already with the love of your life.
As if you have already experienced all the incredible things you have always wanted to experience.
That’s what this exercise is designed to do. Help you write “journal entries” about various experiences with this true love of yours.
You Will Need
- A brand-new journal – Do not use this for anything else other than writing stories about your “experiences” with your true love.
- A good pen that writes smoothly.
- A peaceful 15 – 20 minutes of writing time every day or at least thrice a week. (I recommend scheduling this time so you stay committed to it.)
- A journaling prompt from the list provided later.
1. Start by choosing one of the journaling prompts from the list below and write a headline related to it on top of a new page.
Be creative with this headline. Write as if you are writing a short story.
For example, if you have chosen “How will he/she treat you when you are sick?”, your headline could be “He Nursed Me Back to Health!” or “Girlfriend’s Chicken Soup for the Soul”.
2. Then write the actual story.
How did the day begin?
How did it progress?
What did you feel?
What did you see, hear, touch, taste?
Make sure you feel every emotion while you write this story in your journal.
And write in past tense as if it has already happened. In fact, pretend it happened the previous day!
That’s the key to manifesting – you must believe you have already experienced it!
Tip #1: You can pepper your story with witty banter and dialogues to make it seem more real.
Tip #2: Add mundane details to make the story real. Like, going to the bathroom, eating regular food, getting a text from a boss, and more.
3. If you don’t feel the emotions, don’t force it.
Instead, close your eyes, take in three deep breaths, and ask yourself why you feel the way you do.
For example, if you are writing a happy story but feel discomfort in your belly, ask yourself why?
Most often the answer will be something like this – “Who am I kidding? Things of this kind never happen to me!”
And they won’t either, until you work on your self-esteem and believe that you deserve good and happy things too.
The thing with manifestation is that you can’t force it. If you are not ready to receive what you are asking for, the universe will not send it your way. So, take these moments as a sign that you need to work on yourself and strengthen yourself for within, whether by cutting wrong beliefs from your head or by healing your heart wounds and baggage.
4. At the end of the story, dedicate one paragraph to thanking the universe for making this happen.
Dear Universe, thank you so much for bringing me this wonderful human being. I am so grateful to have someone so loving and kind in my life. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Tip: Three time’s the charm. So end the gratitude note to the universe with the three thank you’s.
5. Sign your name at the bottom of the page.
Don’t be formal here. Sign your real name or the one you like to go by. Think of the universe as your friend and sign your name accordingly.
List of Storytelling/Journaling Prompts to Help You Manifest True Love
- How will he/she treat you when you are sick?
- How will he/she react when they find out someone close to you has died?
- How will he/she react when they learn you won something or did something great in your career?
- How will he/she react when you share your deepest darkest secret with them?
- For those who want to have kids in the future (or already have them) – A regular school day starring you, your boo, and your 8-year-old kid. (You can also do this for other ages. Just choose a random day, not a milestone day like a birthday.)
Tip: You can come up with your own journaling prompts related to how your true love will behave with your children. Like, how will they help the kid learn to ride a bike, or bake cookies, or get back on their feet when they get a big, fat zero on an assignment.
- Your first date.
- Your first kiss.
- Your first vacation together.
- Your first time together sexually.
- Interacting with each other’s friends.
- Interacting with each other’s families.
- Spending the holidays together.
- A bad day at work.
- Trying something new.
- Your first fight.
- How will you react when they achieve something incredible?
- Dealing with nosy people.
- Challenging each other to let go of bad habits.
- Handling money and spending it.
- What kind of family will you create with them?
- Giving each other gifts.
- Doing things for each other.
- How creative are you as a couple?
I could go on and on. But I want you to come up with your own prompts.
Just remember: life isn’t about grand gestures. It’s about the little things we do every day. The routines, the regular boring details. And you want these regular details to be extraordinary.
So, tell stories about these moments.
But don’t forget to dream about the big moments!
They are the icing on top of the cake. And I, for one, love icing a bit too much! 😉
