To simplify, here is Conscious Dating condensed into five core truths:
1. You deserve to love and be loved
What you believe you can achieve. When you truly believe that you deserve to love and be loved you will find and choose someone who adores you exactly as you are who will be the true love of your life. Pull or magnetize the love you want and stop (unconsciously) pushing love away by overcoming the self-doubts and fears that have been preventing you from finding your soul mate.
2. Be ready and available for commitment
Your soul mate is seeking you at the same time you are seeking them. Finding the love of your life will happen when you have cleared a space in your life (and kept it open long enough) for it to be filled with what you really want. Contrary to what you might fear, when you're ready this happens faster than you can imagine.
3. Honor your deepest needs and requirements
Be "The Chooser" by acknowledging your requirements, needs, and wants, and actively find the relationship that meets them. If you settle for less, you get less, and you won't experience the love and connection you really want. Let your motto be "I'd rather be single than settle!" (Trust that you won't be single forever!) Trust when your intuition gives you a strong, unambiguous "YES!" when you have found the love connection that meets your deepest desires.
4. Be your true self
Be fully authentic, allow yourself to be vulnerable and reveal who you really are (including the parts you don't like) so you can connect with others and experience who they really are. This will allow you to find and attract your soul mate who will adore you exactly as you are.
5. True love requires risk
If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got. Your understandable desire to stay safe and hope love somehow finds you will not work. Finding your soul mate requires leaving your comfort zone, putting yourself out into the world, and taking emotional risks.
