Why You Aren’t Attracting Your Dream Partner

A curious reader posed this question to Henk Schram, prompting him to write a concise ebook titled “General Perspective on Relationships” in response. This book is one of three insightful guides all of which are designed to facilitate a deeper understanding of how to effectively harness the Law of Attraction in everyday life.

I would like to discuss the notes I took while reading the book and share the solutions I came up with for the exercises.

How about relationships?

The book suggests that encountering different individuals presents chances for personal development. The connections we form with others are a representation of our inner selves. Each person serves as a reflection, revealing aspects of ourselves that we may need to acknowledge.

According to the book, this reflection is an honest mirror that reveals the aspects of ourselves that require attention. It highlights the issues we need to confront and overcome. Often, relationship problems arise when we shift the blame entirely onto the other person, failing to acknowledge our own role. In reality, we bear full responsibility for the state of our relationships, whether they are nurturing or detrimental.

Based on what I have observed, it can be challenging for individuals to acknowledge their level of responsibility. It is often simpler to shift the blame onto others rather than accepting it oneself. Taking ownership of one’s actions make you realize the amount of effort required to address any shortcomings.

To improve your relationships, it is essential to assume responsibility.

How can you use this information to enhance your relationships?

Confront your shadow

The root of all relationship issues lies in a deficiency of self-love. The affection and care you receive from others is a direct reflection of the love and respect you have for yourself, suggesting that a strong sense of self-worth is the foundation upon which healthy relationships are built.

I had the opportunity to attend a relationship workshop, where the instructor introduced the concept of a “black shadow” within each individual. This internalized wound stems from unconscious scars, often rooted in past events. When someone in our life unwittingly echoes this trauma, we instinctively react with defensiveness, bottling up our emotions and accumulating emotional pressure as a result.

Due to this tension, you may respond defensively or aggressively. I have observed this defensive and reactive behavior among my friends where they become easily angered in response to actions or words that remind them of past trauma.

To cultivate more positive connections, you must first introspect and acknowledge your own emotional patterns. Breaking free from ingrained reactions that have developed over time can be a significant challenge, but developing self-awareness is a crucial step. By cultivating mindfulness, you’ll become conscious of the ways in which your emotions dictate your actions, rather than the other way around, and gain a deeper understanding of your own agency.

Failing to have self-awareness leads to missing chances for growth. Continuously dealing with the same problems can hinder progress until you are able to surpass them.

How can you prevent this cycle? What steps can you take to be more self-aware?

How to attract your ideal romantic partner

I’d like to share an exercise with you that I found in the book.

Step #1

To discover your ideal partner or improve your current relationship, compile a list of qualities you desire in a partner. This list can assist you in determining if your current partner aligns with your preferences.

Step #2

Despite this, the true value of this activity lies when you pause to reflect on this crucial question:

To draw this individual into my life, what personal attributes do I need to embody or develop?

Are there any aspects of myself that I should transform or improve to make myself more appealing to them?

This exercise will guide you in identifying the necessary adjustments in your thought process and behaviors to achieve your goals.

Step #3

Attracting your ideal partner can be challenging if you are not actively working on yourself.

Personally, I aspire to be with someone who values openness, honesty, and authenticity, and who communicates freely. I understand that to draw such a person into my life, I need to embody those qualities myself by being more transparent and truthful.

One method to improve relationships in your life is to:

  1. Identify the underlying patterns or shadow that silently undermine your connections.
  2. Next, you clarify your true desires and expectations for a romantic partnership.
  3. Understand that in order to receive what you desire, you must be willing to offer it first.

This is the most effective approach for asking for a potential romantic partner.
