In need of a little relationship lift? Sometimes the right advice can be hard to come by – and that’s where we come in. Check out 11 of our tips on how you can give your relationships a spiritual makeover. It’s our pleasure…
1 Make friends with love
Open your heart to romance, and invite love (and a lover!) into your life by imagining love’s a person you’re going on a date with, and visualising the two of you having lots of fun together. Pretend they’re your perfect partner, knowing your actual one will soon be along.
2 Create space for Mr (or Mrs!) right
Let the universe know you’re ready for love by de-cluttering your home, and leaving a bedroom drawer or bathroom shelf empty for them to fill with their belongings.
3 Crystallise your relationships
Treat yourself to a piece of rose quartz (associated with love and compassion), and wear or hold it by your heart chakra to deepen your bonds with others.
4 Boost your love life – goddess-style!
The next time you’re feeling down about your relationship or being single, ask the Greek Goddess of Love Aphrodite to bless you with love. Simply light a pink candle, burn some apple-scented essential oil, and call on her guidance.
5 Spice up your relationship
Rekindle the passion between you and your partner by sprinkling some chilli powder, paprika and cumin onto a piece of paper, and leaving it under your bed to encourage lots of red hot love action!
6 Heal a broken heart – and prepare for love again
Overcome the end of a relationship by placing both hands over your heart, and imagining a beautiful pink flower opening inside it. Picture the petals extending outwards, and healing your broken heart.
7 Attract new friends
Widen your social circle by placing images of groups of deer (associated with love and purity) around your home. Opt for ones in a nature-inspired or countryside setting for maximum effect.
8 Manifest your happy ending
Write your own love story by making up a fairy tale, and imagining yourself as its central character. Illustrate the narrative with pretty pictures from magazines, and visualise yourself meeting the man of your dreams, and living happily ever after.
9 Maximise your love luck
Increase your romantic chances by creating your own love altar. Simply place a coffee table in a prominent area of your home, and decorate it with items you associate with love. Images of cupid or couples together, and fresh flowers (especially pink and red roses) are particularly good for this.
10 Attract a partner
Jot down the qualities you’re looking for in an ideal partner, and go through each one carefully to see whether you’re practising the traits you’re seeking. If not, make a point of developing them. Keep the list somewhere safe, and read through it every week to remind yourself what you’re searching for.
11 Domestic bliss
Nurture your relationships with loved ones by planting some love seeds. Take a handful of wild flower seeds, and scatter them in a pot or patch of your garden. Cover them with soil and a sprinkling of water, and imagine you and your family bathed in a beautiful pink light.
