“You become what you think about most… But you also attract what you think about most,” wrote author Rhonda Byrn in her 2006 bestselling self-help book, The Secret. That is the power of manifestation, a force that guides people to acknowledge their deepest desires and turn them into reality, with belief and intention. The roots of manifestation may go back to spiritual and philosophical traditions, but the modern-day understanding of manifestation has gained momentum through the works of renowned authors and self-help experts. This has given rise to more people trying to learn how to manifest love, their dream job, the perfect house or even inner peace. If you are willing to give manifestation and the law of attraction a fair try, we’ve got some tips for you on how to manifest love.

What does it mean to manifest?

Manifesting refers to the practice of bringing something into your life through focused intention, visualisation and belief. It is based on the idea that your thoughts and energy have the power to shape your reality. By clearly defining your desires, maintaining a positive mindset and taking aligned actions, you can attract and materialise your goals, dreams, or desires into your life, explains mental health and wellness counsellor Suman Agarwal.

How to set goals to manifest love?

Clarity of goals is crucial in manifestation as it provides a clear direction for your intentions. When manifesting love and trying to attract someone you love, having clear goals helps you focus on what you truly desire in a partner and relationship, increasing the likelihood of attracting a compatible match, says Agarwal. When setting these goals, remember:

1. Be specific

Clearly define the qualities, values, and experiences you want in a romantic partner and relationship, unless you already want to manifest love from a specific person.

2. Stay positive

Frame your goals in a positive light, focusing on what you want rather than what you don’t want.

3. Be realistic

Set goals that are attainable and realistic. It is integral that these goals and aims are aligned with your values and desires.

4. Be open

Stay open to unexpected opportunities and experiences that may lead to love. An open mind may help you discover many things about yourself as well.

5. Trust your instincts

Listen to your intuition when setting goals and making decisions related to manifesting love.

How to take action while manifesting love?

After setting your goals for manifesting love, the next step is to take intentional action towards those goals. “Making a list can be a helpful tool in this process,” says Agarwal. Here’s how you can proceed:

1. Create a vision board

Gather images, words, and symbols that represent your desired relationship and create a vision board. Display it in a place where you’ll see it daily to reinforce your intentions.

2. Make a list

Write down the qualities and characteristics you’re looking for in a partner. This can serve as a reminder of what you’re seeking and help you recognize potential matches.

3. Think of actionable steps

Break down your goals into actionable steps you can take to attract love into your life. This could include joining social groups, trying new hobbies, or practicing self-care to boost confidence.

4. Remain open

While it is important to take proactive steps, remain open to unexpected opportunities and connections. Love can come in unexpected ways, so stay receptive to new possibilities.
