When the book The Secret came out, lots of people thought it was the answer to their prayers on how to find love. The powerful messages about how to attract love exploded in readers' minds and hearts, and it all led to one amazing conclusion: finding love was truly possible—but it starts within.
In this week-long YourTango Experts Spotlight, we're taking a holistic look at love to see how you can transform those pesky beliefs about yourself from negative to positive in an effort to be the love you want to attract. Whether you're single or married, the work this week will be the same: how can you look inside at the beliefs and attitudes you carry around and let go of ones that don't serve your highest goals for your love life?
