Finding your Beloved, I think is one of the hardest and yet at the same time easiest things to achieve - with God's help and the inner guidance that comes with meditation - which is in fact, Listening to God... For so long I tried to demand God that he bring me my soulmate NOW- until i surrendered and released the problem to God - after making my soulmate list 2 years ago August - I made it - actually sitting in Barnes and Nobles and drinking ice coffee and just said Ok God you take care of it - this is what I want - if you bring someone in fine - if not I accept that too, whatever is Your Will. The moment I did that I knew he would come - and he did one month later! My list was specific and full of intangibles - kind, loyal, emotionally available, ready - nothing about wealth, looks, etc. That's the key, I think - the intangibles - qualities of character, heart, mind and soul that are already there and that last. Also, being in a place in your life where you feel Ok about yourself - your looks, your work, etc. Never, never looking for someone to rescue you - only you and God's love can do that.
Three Years before I had gone through the dark night of the soul - poverty, 2 serious illnesses, depression - and came out of it by realizing the power of God's love - that I was loved and always will be by God.
So - make your list and know that God does answer prayers.. I am living proof of it - married and so very, very happy and loved by a wonderful, kind man - even at my age!
