The universal Law of Attraction states that we draw to us those people, events, and circumstances that match our inner state of being. In other words, we attract experiences that are consistent with our beliefs. If we believe that there is plenty of love in the world and we are worthy of giving and receiving that love, we will attract a different quality of relationships than someone who believes in scarcity or feels unworthy of happiness. If we believe the world is a loving and friendly place, then most of the time that will be our experience. If we believe the world is a chaotic, stressful, and fearful place, then eventually that will become our reality. So, believing and knowing that your soulmate is out there is a critical first step in the formula for manifesting him or her into your life.

When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and argument. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change.

The more I wonder, the more I love.
~ Alice Walker

The most wonderful of all things in life, I believe, is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a glowing depth, beauty, and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing, it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of Divine accident.
~ Sir Hugh Walpole

A five-word sentence that could change the world tomorrow is What would love do now?
~ Neale Donald Walsch

The laws are very simple: thought is creative; fear attracts like energy; love is all there is.
~ Neale Donald Walsch

The light of unconditional love awakens the dormant seed potentials of the soul.
~ John Welwood

We no longer vibrate to fear when we're attuned to love.
~ Frank Whitney

To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.
~ Oscar Wilde

Everything we do is either an act of love or a cry for help.
~ Marianne Williamson

Growth is a detox process, as our weakest, darkest places are sucked up to the surface in order to be released…often, it is not a change in partners but rather a change in perception that delivers us to the love we seek.
~ Marianne Williamson

Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love. The real miracle is the love that inspires them. In this sense every thing that comes from love is a miracle.
~ Marianne Williamson

We are not held back by the love we didn’t receive in the past, but by the love we’re not extending in the present.
~ Marianne Williamson

We were born with a natural tendency to focus on love. Our imaginations were creative and flourishing, and we knew how to use them. We were connected to a richer world, a world full of enchantment and a sense of the miraculous. What happened?
~ Marianne Williamson

When love isn’t in our lives, it’s on the way. If you know that a special guest is coming at five o’clock, do you spend the day messing up the home? Of course not. You prepare. And that is what we should do for love.
~ Marianne Williamson

Ignoring your passion is like dying a slow death…Passion whispers to you through your feelings, beckoning you toward your highest good. Pay attention to what makes you feel energized, connected, stimulated- what gives you your juice. Do what you love, give it back in the form of service, and you will do more than succeed. You will triumph.
~ Oprah Winfrey
