Daring Act of Love: Take Yourself Out On A Romantic Date, Ask Yourself What You Really Need, And Listen. When’s the last time you had a heart to heart with yourself. How long would you put up with a person you were dating or married to if they weren’t having deep and personal conversations with you – hopefully not very long! Create intimacy with yourself by spending the evening journaling on the question “What do I really need right now? To feel loved? To be happy? To be healthy? To feel safe and secure? To feel seen?” Then after you get all that information from yourself, make a promise to yourself to make sure you receive the love you need.
Love Rule #3: Love Always Creates More Love. Not getting the love you need? Then BE LOVE. The energy you feel inside and that you put out there into the world comes back to you – simple Law of Attraction.

Daring Act of Love: Be a Love Generator and make love for yourself. Don’t wait to receive love from someone else – you have the power to create it right now for yourself. Here’s how – do a Self Love Soak every morning! Before you get out of bed, close your eyes, curl up in a loving ball, hug yourself, and tell yourself, “Your Name, I love you.” Keep saying these love words until you generate love, until you feel that warm tingly feeling of love in your body. Even if it’s just a little bit at first, keep generating love this way until it comes naturally and in big waves. Fake it til you make it – make love that is!
And here’s a bonus rule – Be unafraid to admit you need love – we all do. If you fear people thinking you are weak for needing love, then you weaken your ability to receive it. Be daring – desire love, need love, and let love in when it shows up at your heart’s doorstep
