What’s the best thing you can do for yourself when you’re looking for love?
I’ve written many posts about finding love with Feng Shui. But Feng Shui for romance is sometimes more than looking at the Bagua, arranging furniture or choosing the right colors.
Overall its goal is to help you achieve happiness and success in every part of your life, so sometimes we need to step back look at the “big picture” of Feng Shui.
In terms of Feng Shui, the best thing to do when you’re looking for love is to Love Yourself.
Look at this sweet and innocent child, who sees himself in the mirror and isn’t at all shy about loving himself!
This kind of “true love” attracts smiles and love from every adult in his world — it’s a healthy self-regard that will eventually evolve into the vital ability to love others as well.
In fact this is one of the reasons that mirrors are so important and widely used in Feng Shui — they remind you of who you are, and to take the best possible care of yourself.
There are as many ways to love yourself as there are things you enjoy doing.
- Satisfy your curiosity by taking classes, exploring new places, attending lectures and other events.
- Indulge in your favorite foods — in moderation, perhaps — and share them with friends.
- Awaken your inner child by making a nice long list of the things you loved to do when you were young. Surprise yourself by doing some of them again!
- Appreciate the things you’re grateful for by keeping a Gratitude Journal — listing just five things you’re grateful for each day can be enough to keep you smiling and contented.
A happy person attracts other happy people — one of whom could become that “special someone” in your life.
What are your favorite ways to treat yourself like the special person you are?
