Love, love, love

Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.

—Lucille Ball

 

Are you ready for your close encounter?

Sometimes it may seem like you are an alien on a distant planet when it comes to finding your true love. But never fear, my dear. You are in good hands. You have done the work required to shift your experience and expectations to one that is more into line with who you want to be, and who you want to be with. The Universe has heard your request and answered you. The work is getting yourself excited and ready for what's been created by your request.

The more positive emotion, excitement and even humor you have around your pending ideal relationship, the more easily it will come into your experience preceded by wonderful signs and inspirations that give you hope. Make yourself ready by doing the work, telling your new story, and loving yourself. Be the person that your ideal mate wants to be with and celebrate who you are and all of the love you have to give.

You Never Know How it will happen...

To get you feeling good and looking for the lighter side of dating and finding your true love, here is a hilarious TED presentation featuring humorist John Hodgman sharing a story about aliens, physics, time, space and how a series of disjointed events contributed to his sweet, perfect memory of falling in love.

In anticipation of your ideal relationship, what are you most excited about? This Play may seem simple at first glance, but it is incredibly powerful at boosting your mood and getting your compass needle spinning toward your Magnetic North. It uses all of the Compass Playbook creative problem solving techniques and then some. You can design the way you want to approach this Play, and come back to it again to add more to your growing collection of things you are excited about in anticipation of your true love coming to you.

Imagine and use at least two creative problem solving tools (list, mind map, storyboard, draw, write, visualize) to respond to this question:

"What are you most excited about doing/being/having when you are with your ideal partner?"
