I love HGTV, especially the house hunter episodes. Usually it’s a couple, searching for the perfect home for their family. Getting on the same page with the wish list is sometimes a challenge, but by the end of the show, they’re happily at home in their new abode. One thing all house hunters have in common is that they know what they want. They don’t randomly wander around looking at houses in every neighborhood and in every price range.
What do you want in a relationship? If your answer is “love,” that’s a great start. But until you set more specific intentions, you may be frustrated by the kind of relationships you attract.
Love takes many forms, not all of them good. For instance, you may have experienced this: someone who says “I love you,” but out of your sight, he doesn’t think of you, he neglects to call, text or schedule time with you. Love for this person is a feeling but it doesn’t translate into behavior that nurtures love.
A more specific intention for love might sound like this: “My intention for this year is to attract someone with whom I can share a positive, nurturing love relationship. We share common values, we are totally committed to one another, we share our lives in all the ways that matter to us, and our behavior reflects the love that we share. Our relationship grows naturally, easily, and gracefully as we progress toward marriage.”
The one thing that will transform your relationship life this year is to set very specific intentions for what you wish to attract. Then, apply all your passion and commitment to sticking with that vision. Never settle for less than your highest and greatest intentions for a truly good relationship.
Quickly move on from relationships that don’t align with your vision. Each day, remind yourself of your relationship intention so that it is ever present. Now, go out, meet people, and relax. Trust that with the right intention, you will naturally and easily move toward that wonderful relationship.
