I used to have a lot of negative beliefs surrounding my love life. Fears of rejection, of not being ‘girlfriend material’ and all that. I still do to some extent, but I am very aware of them and am trying to replace them with better feeling beliefs and thoughts.

Now usually, I get infatuated very easily, and this is where I have most seen the Law of Attraction in my life (in a negative way). I’d meet a guy who seemed really nice and was into me, I’d get totally infatuated, triggering all my fears and negative beliefs, and subsequently lose him for no apparent reason. Law of Attraction in action, of course.

Now I have met someone who seems exactly like I’d envisioned my ideal man to be, and I am falling into infatuation fast. This did trigger some ‘stuff’, which I am working on with Focus Blocks and other techniques. Thing is, I always get waaaay ahead of myself when I fall into infatuation. Imagining the whole relationship after only a couple of dates, marriage, kids, the whole shebang. And I can’t shake this paranoia that my daydreaming will sabotage the whole thing and it won’t work out for just that reason.

So – how do I work around this? Is it ok for me to daydream about our potential future as long as I keep focusing on clearing the issues that it brings up, or am I just setting myself up for disappointment? How can I get excited about this potential relationship without becoming desperate for it?

I strongly suspect I already know the answer deep inside but if one of you IQ’ers would care to remind me, I’d be happy :)

Oh cassiopeia, I've (very recently) been exactly where you have been....Due to my limited time, I'll give you an answer within a few days, but for now, even if 'the worst' happens, realise negative dark feelings will eventually pass. And this crap regarding "not being worthy girlfriend material", don't even worry of that. If I could hug you I would, because yes, you'll get your dream man.

It sounds cliche, but at the moment if you are desperate for answers, go on the journey to LOVE YOURSELF

Yea, that's what I've been trying to focus on for a long time now: the journey to loving myself. My increased self-love has been reflected in my manifestations of relationships, which is great :D

Although it's still hard not to get carried away...I'm trying to focus on my work now but keep feeling tempted to log on to Facebook for the 1,000th time to look at his photos and imagine what our babies would look like! Sigh. I feel kinda silly!!

Centering myself helps, so I think I'll do that now :)

I don't think there is anything wrong at all with dreaming or imagining a potential future as long as you don't get too desperate like you mentioned. It sounds like you are putting too much pressure on yourself and too much pressure on how the other person needs to fit just the right way.

The best bet would be to just let go of all expectations and let someone flow effortlessly to you.

There is no need to put stipulations on how you react or how he may potentially react in the beginning stages. If you could just start to focus more on having fun and enjoying each others company, instead of letting your negative habitual beliefs kick in, then you will feel the relief inside of yourself and also put yourself into the "allowing mode" instead of the "worry mode."

Fears of rejection and not being girlfriend material are worrying. When you are putting your laser beam focus on worry every time this situation comes up, one way or another, you will obtain the same unsatisfying results.

Continue to change the negative beliefs in the best way that works for you. Be repetitive in inserting new beliefs and do it with a joyful feeling. Don't ever make it feel like work or some job you have to do because there will be no positive feeling in the affirmations or whatever technique you use.

Every time you have these habitual beliefs pop up you need to try and eliminate them in the Now moment. I mentioned something similar to this with the Stop, Drop, and Roll method.

If you can become aware of what you are thinking in the here and now moment, you can begin to neutralize it with consistent conscious awareness of what you are thinking and how you are feeling.

So in other words, when you start thinking things in this very moment like, "I have a fear of rejection" - you could instead say...

"I know this situation will work itself out in the perfect way and I am going to enjoy every minute of it no matter what happens."

When you start thinking things like, "I'm not girlfriend material" - maybe you say to yourself...

"I love myself for who I am and I know the perfect guy will find his way to me when the time is right"

These are quick and simple examples to get you started in the moment when you initially think of your unwanted belief. If you can start to even slowly change the negative thought on the spot with a new positive statement, you will eventually get to a point to where you pause for even a split second, and think about what you really want to say or how you really want to feel about yourself.

Continue to stay aware of these thoughts like you said you were doing. As soon as you are aware try to neutralize them at that moment with new positive input. Use EFT, Focus Blocks, or even simple affirmations that give you a feeling of happiness and relief.

Stay consistent just as you would while picking weeds from your garden. Every time you see one pop up, instantly get rid of it so you have fertile soil to sows your new seeds. Then eventually with enough attention and watering of your crops, you will reap the harvest of the perfect man in just the right situation that works best for you.

Go into the whole process to have fun and enjoy your time with him and leave it to the universe to figure out. Keep it simple and just feel good by enjoying each other's company and leave it at that. Just let go of all the other baggage that you are unnecessarily putting on your back.

Great answer Cory. I especially like the weed analogy. Sometimes I expect to be able to eradicate all my negative beliefs instantly, and when they do pop up, I get very disappointed and think that I'm right back where I started. But when I compare the type of men and relationships that I am manifesting now as compared to a year ago, well, there's a world of difference, so I must be doing something right! Stop, drop and roll... I will remember that! :)

@cassiopeia If I could sum up my message in a simple way, it would be to ease up on yourself, have fun, enjoy the moment, and let the wind take your sails into whatever direction it chooses.

Don't get disappointed if you are even making the least little bit of progress. Appreciate and thank any and all progress that you make because that awareness of gratitude and appreciation will only snowball into more joyful and better things in your life. Take it one step at a time and never give up.
