How to Deal With the Challenges of Dating As a Vegan

Published

on

vegan dating Image

Dating, including vegan dating, should be fun. This interaction might someday involve courtship and engaging in social activities together (mountain climbing and visiting animal sanctuaries get better together).

Ultimately, you would want your dating time to enable you to assess a suitable intimate partner for a long-term relationship. But what happens in vegan dating; especially if you are vegan and your date, is not? Are you the one to compromise or your date?

Cruelty-free dating is a challenge that vegans face when finding potential life mates. If not careful, the dating experience can be very disappointing.

Cruelty-Free Dating

Generally, we vegans make a lifetime commitment to live a cruelty-free life. This means that the restaurants we frequent should humanely handle animals. The brand of clothes and footwear we wear should have the bunny logo. The entertainment spots we visit should observe animal rights especially if animals are used to provide the entertainment.

And last but not least, the food we eat should be 100% vegan. No life is worth sacrificing for a dinner plate, right! When two vegan people date, they tend to reinforce each other’s choices. But this can be challenging when we choose to date a non-vegan.

How Do We Handle Vegan Dating?

So you think you have finally met the one and you are going on your first date. How will you explain your hesitation to visit his favorite restaurant? Should you just come out straight and tell your partner that you are vegan? Will you tell him (her) that the last time you were in a restaurant the smell of ribs barbequing almost made you cry?

You don’t have to!

Structure Your Priorities

The first rule in vegan dating is to never make the dinner table the center of your relationship. You have so much you can share as a couple including getting to know each other better, sharing each other’s plans and ambitions, and even playing silly games and laughing. Make a conscious decision to dwell on the relationship.

Focusing on what to eat and what to avoid dilutes your quality time with your partner. Let your partner discover your healthy lifestyle orientation when you order your chickpea flour omelet with spinach, onion, tomato and bell peppers while he orders his cheese and ham omelet. Even when he brings up the topic, you should not dwell too much on it. Instead, just briefly let them know that you are a vegan by choice and that you enjoy your lifestyle and respect those who do not live the vegan way. Remember it is your first date. You have many more dates to change them.

You Don’t Owe Anyone an Explanation – Your Life Your Choices

Another challenge that vegans face when dating non-vegans is the need to always explain why they prefer cruelty-free options. This happens more often when going on a group date like camping with friends. Remember that not all non-vegans will take your reasons positively. Some may even make derogatory remarks about your choices.

So this brings us to our second rule in vegan dating. Respect matters a lot! If you and your partner can respect each other’s preferences, then you will be able to tolerate one another.

Do You Have Anything Else in Common?

The third rule in vegan dating is to focus on your shared interests. Does your partner like doing yoga? Turn your yoga session into a date. Does he like rock climbing, hiking, or bowling? Or maybe he is an animal lover like you. Then spend your date in an animal sanctuary. While at it, discuss the reasons why you love doing these activities.

An action-packed date is a great way to release tension between the two of you. With time, as you share more and more interests, you may find your partner also liking the vegan lifestyle because as you continue dating, you grow closer to one another.

Change Begins at Home

vegan cooking image

Are you planning to move in with your partner? Address the changes that need to be made in your house first. You may have to use separate sets of utensils and pans and agree on where to store your kitchen food supplies if your partner is still non-vegan when you decide to move-in. Discussing these changes will make your stay together as comfortable as possible.

Don’t Push Your Lifestyle Too Far

Another challenge we vegans have when dating non-vegans is that we are too passionate about our lifestyle. We might find ourselves preaching about it while on a date!

So rule number five: never turn a date into a vegan crusade. Dietary differences tend to create dating discord. And trying to convert your partner into a vegan will make it worse. Stop reminding your partner how awful you felt about the chicken he ate. Give them time and let your partner be the one to initiate the interest in your healthy lifestyle habits.

Don’t force them to eat the vegan meals they don’t fancy. You’ll end up alone. When your partner sees how happy and healthy you are in your lifestyle choices, he or she is bound to be attracted to it. Then when he (she) shows interest in a vegan diet, that’s your opportunity to show your kitchen prowess by fixing him (her) a delicious vegan meal.

Be Flexible

vegan couple image

Stay honest and open to possibilities. Even as you are trying to accept your partner’s choices, he (she) is also doing the same for you. Trying to look good by pretending to like everything your partner does will cut short your dating experience. When he suggests that you attend a circus involving caged animals, be honest, and tell him how you feel.

One of the benefits of dating is getting to know each other and accommodating one another. There will always be opportunities whereby the two of you can reach a compromise. So still, have an open mind as you date.

In Conclusion

Dating difficulties exist in every relationship, whether similar lifestyle or vegan dating. What matters is your perception. Work towards growing your relationship into an intimate one. Don’t let the romantic fever the two of you be put off by issues about being vegan or non-vegan.

Feng Shui For Love: 5 Simple Steps To Attract Romantic Relationship

Published

Feng Shui For Love Image

If you are unlucky in your love and romantic life and you don’t know how to find your soul mate, then you might want to try a little feng shui to help with the disharmonious atmosphere in your house. If the energy of your home doesn’t radiate love and romance, it’s not easy for you to attract a decent life partner. Feng Shui for love offers many proven formulas and methods of harmonization of the energies around us. These methods are quite simple. We can successfully apply them in life and achieve amazing results!

In this article, I want to share with you 10 proven tips to bring romantic luck into your life by harmonizing the energy of your home with Feng Shui methods!

Let’s get it started!

Step 1: Cleaning Out Space Around You

Cardboard boxes in room image

No matter how boring it may sound, before you start attracting the long-awaited love, it is necessary to properly clean the space around you. Your home is your temple, where love lives. Therefore, the attitude to the house should be appropriate. Create a temple of love in your house!

Good Feng Shui for love always begins with cleaning your house and getting rid of old and useless things. Remember that every little thing in your house has energies. However, these energies are not always positive. Look around! Do all the things that surround you make you happy? Without regret, get rid of all those things that do not cause love vibrations in your heart!

It is especially important to get rid of all the things that your ex-partners gave you as gifts without regret! Do not keep those things that are the symbols of a long-gone love. Until you get rid of these things, your past will pull you back, and the energy of these things will only attract problems in a new relationship! You need to remove all the cords to the past to open the door for a brighter future!

I assure you, you will feel great relief after throwing away all those things that no longer bring you joy!

Step 2: Fill Your House With Positive Energy

It would be great if our parents taught us this simple rule. But, unfortunately, only a few people are aware of the necessity of the bed linen replacement after the breakup of the relationship. It is very difficult to bring to life a harmonious relationship when we sleep on the same sheets on which we slept when we were in past relationships. I, personally, follow a strict rule: new relationships – new sheets! Why bring the old energy of a long-gone relationship into your new relationship?

Take a look at your bed. How attractive does it look? Update bedspreads, decorative pillows, place aromatic blend with rose scent into your bedroom. Give preference to the soft warm tones for linens – peach, warm beige, etc. Make your bed radiate love and invite love. The bed should always be clean and tidy!

By the way, for married couples, there is also an ancient proven way to refresh the relationship. To do this, the masters advise that you throw away the oldest sheets that you have in the house. Thus, you will cleanse your relationship from negative and stagnant energies! This method is often used to stop fights and abuse between spouses.

Step 3: Add Some Light

sun light window image

Southwest sector of your house represents your romantic luck and love. Therefore, make sure you don’t store suitcases here, and that this sector is clean and free of dust and trash can.

To attract love we should make the southwest sector light and bright. Make sure it has enough natural light. If it doesn’t, use extra electric lights there to keep it light. This light attracts romantic luck into your life!

If you don’t have a Southwest sector in your house, you can activate it in the living room. Simply find the Southwest corner of your living room and make sure it’s clean, bright and light.

Step 4: Activate Romantic Luck

Love is alive and very strong energy. Therefore, the Southwest sector is not just a part of your house, but a magical island of love, radiating powerful vibrations of love and attracting romantic relationship into your life.

Here is a list of talismans that project a powerful message to the Universe that you are ready for love and happiness and open for a romantic relationship. Place the talismans that you like most in the Southwest sector, and expect wonderful miracles to happen!

Windchimes

Feng Shui for love requires you hang a special windchime in the Southwest sector of your house.

Windchime is a great energizer of positive Chi.

As soon as you hang the windchime in the Southwest sector of your house, rest assured – the love energy has been activated for you.

A very effective method is to hang a windchime next to the picture of your dream man/woman (the picture cut from the magazine or printed). I know a lot of people who in a short period of time attracted real miracles! Suddenly they met love partners and created a wonderful relationship that brought a lot of joy. Moreover, the appearance of their partners was very similar to the appearance of the people depicted in the picture! It sounds fantastic, but it’s true! If you have a certain type that you want to attract, feel free to use this method! The universe loves clear requests!

Crystals

Сrystals are actively used in Feng Shui both to dissipate negative energy and to activate positive energy.

The traditional method of Feng Shui for love is to put the crystal in the southwest sector. It is best to place the crystal in such a way that sunlight falls on it. On a nice sunny day, you can play with the crystal, turning it and allowing shining rays to illuminate the walls, ceiling and all objects in the room. This simple action brings positive Chi energy in your house.

Another way to place the crystal in the southwest sector is to hang it. However, be careful there are certain rules on how to hang the crystal in feng shui purposes:

1. hang your crystal on a red thread;

2. the length of this thread must be a multiple of 9. That is 9, 18 or 27 cm (3.54, 7.09, or 10.63 inches). This is because the number 9 is a sacred number in Feng Shui that combines the power of heaven and earth;

3. when hanging the crystal, it is necessary to charge it. Simply turn to your crystal and ask it to protect your house from negativity and bring love, peace, and harmony into your life.

Pair Talismans

Mandarin Ducks Image

Traditional Feng Shui suggests placing mandarin ducks or a pair of cranes in the southwest sector. The mandarin ducks symbolize a long and happy marriage. The cranes carry very strong energy of the happy couple that cannot be separated. They symbolize immortal love and loyalty.

A Couple Of Candles

This is just the perfect love sector activator! Place a couple of red or pink candles in the southwest sector and light them approximately once a week with the intention to attract love into your life. While the candles are burning, it is very useful to meditate, looking at the flame. Imagine how this flame ignites the fire of love in your heart.

Rose Quartz Double Heart

Rose Quartz Double Heart Image

Rose quartz is a stone of love, which is a radiator of love and romance  and which we always use in Feng Shui for love! Place a rose quartz double heart talisman in the southwest sector of your house and you will activate the energy of love, tenderness, and romance in your life.

Dragon and Phoenix

In the Feng Shui symbolism, Dragon and Phoenix are the two most powerful exponents of favorable Qi energy. These are heavenly creatures that symbolize the pinnacle of luck.

The Dragon symbolizes success, courage, leadership, and higher fortune. Phoenix symbolizes new opportunities, luck, change, and rebirth.

Dragon and Phoenix placed together represent a strong Union of Yin and Yang, embodied in the life of family happiness. This is an effective means of improving romantic luck, both for already married people and for those who are in search of love.

Place the Dragon and Phoenix in the southwest sector of your house or in your bedroom.

Step 5: Fill In Your Bedroom With Love Energy

Feng Shui Bedroom Tips Image

Make your bedroom your own little sanctuary! Let it be the most peaceful and harmonious place for you. Follow Feng Shui bedroom tips in my article “The Best Feng Shui Bedroom Tips For Love, Romance, and Happiness”.

Bottom Line

I’ve never met anyone that Feng Shui for love wouldn’t help. Feng Shui changes lives! It doesn’t always happen immediately. Usually, changes come gradually. Although sometimes people see the results the very next day. Everyone is different, so it turns out the results are different. But one thing I know for sure: Feng Shui works at all levels of our lives! It brings joy and hope for a new happy and harmonious life. Feel free to accept “the friendly hand” of your new friend Feng Shui! Use these simple steps and see how your life will change!

Open your heart and go towards your dream of a harmonious romantic relationship, towards true love, towards yourself!

Activate Romantic Luck With These Powerful Love Affirmations!

best love affirmations image

Love is the main creative force, the binding fabric of the Universe. Everything alive on our planet is circling in the eternal act of love. And our spiritual development can only progress through love. When we fall in love, it means that we connect with the whole Universe in a great dance of creativity. It gives us strength, inspiration, birth to new ideas and impetus to our development. Before I share my favorite love affirmations with you, I would like to say a couple of words about love.

Let’s Talk About Love

The greatest secret of happiness is to love yourself, be in a good mood and think positively!

If you love yourself, you will never suffer from the loss of love. You have to understand that your relationship with yourself is reflected in all your other relationships (with your partner, family members, colleagues or friends).

powerful love affirmations image

I’m sure you noticed that the most attractive energy comes from people who sincerely and unconditionally love themselves. And there is nothing surprising about the fact that the better you treat yourself, the better quality of relationship you attract. In this regard, “better quality” is shown in not allowing yourself to have those relationships that are unworthy of you, in which you humiliate yourself or suffer. “Better quality” means always to choose the best for yourself, never compromise with yourself and never sacrifice your self-love!

How Do Love Affirmations Work?

First of all, let me tell you that in my opinion love affirmations are the most effective formula for finding love. I’m 100% confident that affirmations work for everyone who has enough discipline, willpower, and concentration for everyday practice.

Affirmations are positive statements that program your subconscious mind to fulfill all your desires. In accordance with this program, joyful and happy desired events will gradually enter into your life.

Most people can’t even imagine how effective affirmations are! Affirmations are your main key to reprogramming your consciousness. That’s why the trick is to keep repeating them again and again until they are firmly imprinted in your subconscious.

How To Practice Love Affirmations?

In this article, I decided to share with you the system that I created for myself many years ago when I was suffering from unrequited love. Later I discovered that this system works amazingly not just for myself but also for my friends and students.  This system helped me not only to meet my great love but also learn to love myself! That is why I recommend you start practicing with self-love affirmations and then move on to Universal love affirmations and Love affirmations for attracting a partner.

love words image

My Love Affirmation System includes 3 groups:

1. Self-love affirmations
2. Universal love affirmations
3. Love affirmations for attracting a partner for romantic relationships.

Read these affirmations in the morning immediately after waking up and in the evening before going to bed. Practice the first group of affirmations for 21 days. Then (after 21 days of daily practice) add the second group to your daily practice. Read both groups of affirmations for another 21 days. Then add the 3rd group of affirmations. Practice all 3 groups of affirmations daily until you see the result.

Group 1 – Self-Love Affirmations

Start practicing love affirmations with this group.

We always attract what we radiate. That is why – in order to attract a partner, you must first become a source of love. When you radiate love you become a magnet for love. You become more attractive not only on an energy level but even your appearance will start to change! When you love yourself you become a source of joy and inspiration for others. You look attractive, happy and calm. In my article “5 Simple Steps To Boost Your Self-Love” I share how to love yourself. Don’t forget to check it out!

The following affirmations will help you to boost your self-love.

self-love affirmations image

  • I LOVE and accept myself for who I am!
  • I LOVE my personality!
  • I LOVE my body!
  • I LOVE my behavior!
  • Every day I become more and more attractive! I can see it and people around me can see it too!
  • I respect myself!
  • I think about myself only in a positive LOVING way!
  • I talk about myself only in a respectful and LOVING way!
  • I am LOVE!
  • I’m in LOVE with myself!

Group 2 – Universal Love Affirmations

Continuing the theme on how to become the source of love. We need to learn not only to love ourselves but also to love our lives and everything and everyone around us!

The following love affirmations will help to tune into the energy of love towards the whole world.

universal love affirmations image

  • I radiate LOVE!
  • There is LOVE inside and around me!
  • My life is full of LOVE!
  • I LOVE myself and the whole world!
  • I am a source of LOVE!
  • May my LOVE fill the Universe!
  • I’m in LOVE with my life!
  • I LOVE everyone I know and everyone who knows me LOVES me! I feel it!
  • I LOVE the whole world and the whole world LOVES me! I feel it!
  • I LOVE the whole Universe and the whole Universe LOVES me! I feel it!

Group 3 – Love Affirmations For Attracting a Partner

Finally, we come to the last set of affirmations – and probably the reason you began to read this article – love affirmations to attract a partner.

love affirmations for relationships image

  • I let go of my past and open up myself to LOVE and new relationships!
  • I welcome new relationships and new LOVE!
  • I am open to LOVE unconditionally!
  • I am open to receive LOVE!
  • I’m grateful for LOVE!
  • I have a big respect and LOVE for men (women)!
  • I’m in LOVE and I am LOVED! I live in peace and harmony!
  • I attract harmonious and happy relationship into my life!
  • My partner respects me and loves me as much as I love and respect him (her)!
  • I am happy in LOVE!

The Bottom Line

There is nothing more important than love. In order to attract love, we have to become its source first. It’s not difficult to do if we keep our focus on it. Affirmations are a great tool which helps us not only reprogram ourselves from negativity to positivity, from self-hate to self-love, from misery to happiness but also to keep our focus on only what we desire.

If you want to attract love, first of all, you should stop focusing on your loneliness but start focusing on LOVE instead. While reading love affirmations visualize that you already have what you intend to attract: self-love, acceptance, romantic relationships, etc. Not just the positive words of love affirmations but also the feeling of having what you want attracts the desired results! Combine the power of thoughts with a power of words and a power of visualization and you will always attract what you want into your life!

These 5 Love Mantras Will Change Your Life!

Published

on

Love Mantras Chanting Image

Sometimes our romantic life doesn’t quite go the way we would like it to. Some people start to fight for their happiness, some –  give up and resign themselves to fate, and some – appeal to a Higher power to help them understand why they are experiencing this life lesson, learn it and continue their path. Love mantras help to overcome the difficulties and troubles in relationships, to find a life partner or soulmate, to fill with passion, fading relationships. In other words, to change our romantic luck for the better.

Written in Sanskrit verbal codes that came to us from Tibet and India are designed for different situations. Powerful coded information, which is hidden in every sacred syllable of love mantras, allows you to improve your romantic luck and get rid of loneliness.

How Do Love Mantras Work?

Ancient Tibetan and Hindu knowledge allows us to discover new spiritual horizons and significantly improve our lives.

Mantras came to us from ancient times. Mantra Chanting helps us to attract love, tenderness, and passion. Some people think that this practice is not for everyone. But it’s not true! Mantra chanting is a universal method of praying that is available to everyone. Absolutely everyone can chant mantras. And this is a very significant advantage of mantras – they help everyone who wants to change his or her life for the better, regardless of age, sex, and religion.

When we pronounce mantras in Sanskrit, we have the opportunity to restore harmony and connect with the cosmos. When you chant love mantras consistently you become more and more connected with the Universe. This connection creates love vibrations in your body. And these vibrations attract your soulmate into your life; passion in your relationships; tenderness in your feelings;  etc.

Each mantra contains a very powerful energetic particle of the Universe and the potential of the realization of the desired result.

In this case, when it comes to attracting love luck, love mantras will be your most powerful tool.

How To Chant Love Mantras?

It is recommended to chant mantras 108 times. This number is considered to be magical, carrying a very important sacred meaning. By repeating love mantras 108 times, you reveal the meaning of each number, allowing it to work for you:

1 – the symbol of the Highest Energy that contributes to the realization of the desired result;

0 – the symbol of the perfection of God’ Creation;

8 – the symbol of infinity.

When you’re chanting love mantras it is recommended to use prayer beads (108 beads). Thus, you will not be distracted from the meditation and will be able to tune in the right way to attract the desired result into your life.

Meditation and a good atmosphere are also considered to be very important. It is best to chant mantras early morning and evening hours. The room where you practice mantra chanting should be calm and quiet.

You can reach the excellent results if you combine mantra chanting with certain actions. For example, you can apply the following schedule: get up early in the morning and drink a glass of warm water on an empty stomach; sit down and chant love mantras. Supplement the session with several favorite yoga asanas (optional). And complete the ritual with a short-term relaxation lying on the back on the floor with closed fingers – thumb and index.

After reading these simple recommendations you can start your mantra practice. Believing in the power of love mantras and showing respect for ancient Tibetan and Hindu knowledge, you will forget about all your problems with relationships.

The Most Powerful Love Mantras

Green Tara Mantra

This mantra brings the soul to a state of balance, reveals femininity and attractiveness. While chanting the mantra you should mentally refer to the goddess Tara and ask for assistance in finding your soulmate. This mantra is considered to be a mantra of the fulfillment of desires. That’s why it’s Dalai Lama’s favorite mantra.

Om Tare Tuttare Ture Svaha

Mantra of Love

This is a very beautiful mantra of love and tenderness. This mantra fills your soul with the light of love and harmony. It helps to attract love into your life. If you had a fight with your beloved, chanting this sacred mantra will help you to reconcile. Crying while listening or singing this mantra is a very good sign of cleansing your aura from negative vibrations.

Tumi Bhaja Re Mana Tumi Japa Re Mana
Om Shri Ram Jaya Ram
Japa Re Mana

The Vibration of Love

These sacred sounds raise the internal power of women, creating in them a vibration of love. Magically, you will become a magnet of love for others if you sing these sounds for three weeks. This mantra connects you with energies of Sun, Moon, Earth and the Infinite Spirit. Through this connection, you experience deep healing.

Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung

Mantra for Attracting the Attention of the Opposite Sex

This mantra attracts potential partners for relationships. You can chant this mantra while thinking about a perfect partner for yourself. Sacred sounds of this mantra create a glow around your aura, which is impossible not to notice. Sing constantly to achieve results.

Om Kurukulle Svaha

Mantra for the Reunification of the Feminine and Masculine

This powerful mantra helps with the reunification of the feminine and masculine. It helps to create the inner harmony, fertile ground for love, tenderness and long-term relationships.

Kang Kalika Hum Shivaya

Purusha Prakriti

Kang Kalika Hum Shivaya

Om Mani Padme Hum

The Bottom Line

As you can see the mantra practice is not so difficult! However, the result of this practice is simply amazing. Try to make love mantras chanting your daily practice – and you will see how much your life will change for the better. If you correctly repeat each sound, syllable, word, then it is possible to attract improbable favorable changes in your life very quickly!
