Look For A Mirror: Before You Look For Love, Look For A Mirror

The most powerful observation you will make is to look for a mirror if you are looking for love. Why? All too often we can come out of a relationship and blame the other person for the problem. But no one is responsible for all of a relationship. So we need to accept responsibility for our part of it, but more importantly learn from it.

The problem if we don’t do this is that we are bound to make the same mistakes over and over. We may even date men with the same issues again and again.

Like Attracts Like

A closer look in the mirror may also show that we are attracting the energy that we are putting out. This is difficult swallow but necessary if you want to raise your vibration and find soul mate love. The universal laws of the Law of Attraction demands that ‘Like Attracts Like’.

The end of a relationship is not necessarily a bad thing, if you take time to learn from it. You can do this by looking at your past relationships as an observer instead of as a participant.

Look at it with fresh eyes. Why would have attracted a person that wasn’t the best fit? Then look at yourself to see if you have the same qualities.

The most powerful lessons I learned have been at the end of a relationship. I was with a guy and I found him so frustrating but the funny thing was, those same things was what frustrated me about me.

The realization was that the universe had sent me a lesson in the law of attraction as in this case ‘like attracted like’. I made a promise to myself then, to change the things about myself that would embody the person I wanted to attract.

Bottom line: If you are looking to find love then look for a mirror first and change what you need to change. It may highlight some of the beliefs which are limiting you chance to find new love, resolving your limiting beliefs will give love a chance to flow.

This is the best way of raising your love vibration. You may need to put some work in but if you do you will also reap the rewards as your heart will be open to accept healthy soul mate love. Isn’t that the relationship that you deserve? Why settle for the crumbs of love when the feast is available to you.

It is true that we match our own energy at some level, even when we don't realize it at first. If for some reason a person doesn't feel completely worthy of respect and love, he/she will be treated accordingly. So you really do have to look in the mirror and see yourself. Thanks for the great article.
