7. Practice rituals

I’m a firm believer in the strength of affirmations, visualisations, and manifestation writing. Tell yourself each morning that you release your impediments and that you welcome in new love. Breathe deeply and imagine any negativity escaping as you exhale. Affirm to yourself constantly. You can say things like, “I am inviting genuine love into my life” and “Today is the day I meet the man who completes me.” Affirmations rewire the neurons in your brain so that they form pathways to more positive beliefs in time.

Close your eyes and see yourself meeting a wonderful person. How will he or she look? What will you be wearing that day? Where will you be? Take your time and indulge in the details of your daydream. Then, write it all down in the present tense, as if it were happening right now.

Maybe you won’t meet your soulmate exactly in the manner you envisioned, but I promise you that you’ll have picked up some pertinent details! Most importantly, when your intentions begin to take shape in the real world, don’t miss a single opportunity: let your friend introduce you to that person she thinks you’ll like, have a chat with the stranger who keeps smiling at you, and ask your crush out for a coffee.

When you’ve been practicing empowering rituals, miracles can happen.
