Craving a love affair as passionate as a couple on Grey's Anatomy, Mad Men, or 50 Shades of Grey?
How would you like to transform your less than luscious love life into a juicy and delicious love affair? The key to a love life full of romance, passion and soul-to-soul connection is YOU. Whether you are single or coupled up – the key to happily ever after can be found in these three secrets:
1. Sparkle— The first place to start is getting back your sparkle. This means being in love! Many people interpret "being in love" in another oriented way — I'm in love with my husband/boyfriend, I'm in love with my job, I'm in love with my dog — but in truth when you allow yourself to be who you are, in the present moment here and now, and you allow yourself to fill up with love, becoming love; you are now, "being in love"
There is no focus or dependence on anyone else being the catalyst for you enjoying this extraordinary bliss. When you are in this state you sparkle. You're happy, excited, having fun and giving an abundance of authentic love to everyone you see. This is a fabulous place to be! From here you not only nurture the partnerships you already have — you attract relationships, friends, and situations that are equally as loving.
2. Confidence— Men find women with confidence positive, irresistible, and sexy. Confidence says you genuinely love and respect yourself. You exude an energy that's magnetic, magical and mesmerizing. You know who you are and what you want. You don't expect others to create your happiness. You take responsibility for your joy and you know how to create your joy, independently of others. This takes the pressure off your significant other and lures them in to your wild and wondrous web of fabulosity.
3. Laughing— Give yourself permission to unleash your playful feminine spirit because to live a life of pleasure you must first know pleasure! So get in touch with your inner child. What did you like to do when you were young? As we grow older we often get way too serious. There is no room for frivolity if you are structured and severe. If you are having trouble recalling what brought you happiness as a child, take a few minutes to sit down and reminisce about what you loved to do if you had even 10 extra minutes as a kid. Did you dance, draw, read, sing, bake? Chances are whatever you liked doing then you will still enjoy today.
Another fabulous benefit from laughing is that it opens the mind and heart, oxygenates your cells and gives you a fantastic glow, not only making you feel light and young, you will look years younger too! Making fun and pleasure a priority is essential to your happily ever after. Embrace your passionate, playful side and you will free yourself to live, laugh and love fully self-expressed. In addition, bringing play into your relationship adds fun adventure, lightens any mood and opens the heart creating a nice bonding experience. Plus, it will get your man to open up and talk more. If you are frustrated by your man's lack of chit-chat get him relaxed and playful - believe me, he'll start yappin' up a storm.
Reconnect with the real YOU – the you that glows with Divine Love – from this place you take back your power. So go find your playful, confident, feminine spirit and you'll turn your lonely, dull and disappointing life/relationships into fireworks!
