3. Heal from your past

Knowing that you deserve amazing love works hand in hand with healing from your past. You can’t move forward if old pains still weigh you down; you will remain permanently fixed in an unhappy place. Healing from the past involves much introspection, forgiveness, and the eradication of fear and resentment. Shedding negative emotions and misconceptions opens the channels of love to flow freely.

The easiest way to do this is to keep an “emotion log” throughout the day: jot down how you feel periodically as your day progresses, paying attention to negative emotions that keep cropping up. Who and what is causing you feel bad, and how can you keep it from happening?

Abandon your old ways and bad habits that have led to failed relationships. Make a note of the mistakes you’ve made in previous romances, and remain vigilant not to repeat them. Close open doors, like not remaining in contact with former flames or dwelling on heartbreak you suffered long ago.
