Love as a Magnetizer
Love can serve as a powerful magnetizer for manifesting. Here's the way it works. Because of the hormones that are released in your body when you are in love, your thoughts become highly magnetized. When you first fall in love, you may feel crazy and even somewhat obsessive. All you can think about is your beloved. The other person may, in fact, be thinking of you at the exact moment that you are thinking of her.
Whether it is altruistic, romantic, or compassionate, love seeks expression. Passionate love is the driving force behind magnificent works of art, architecture, literature, and music as well as procreation. Many of us became the expression of our parents' love for each other. Love can draw into your life a romantic partner, meaningful work, pets, and friends.
Mexican artist Frida Kahlo depicted her suffering, anger, and loss in her work. At the core of her life was a passion for art and love for muralist Diego Rivera, and her work intimately reflected this. Some of her pieces are difficult to look at, yet her work is well known and collected.
Some artists who have not yet experienced success may feel a love for their craft but do not have the optimism, confidence, and sense of expectancy that they can create something unique and exceptional. Perhaps their love for their craft is not as strong as their sense of defeatism or failure, which can sabotage their efforts. And yet, others use their pain and suffering as images in their work. Love pulls them into their work and passion serves as the catalyst that ignites their vision for what they desire to manifest. Such artists may become highly successful, turning out magnificent and unique works as their gifts to the world.
When you calm your mind, cultivate a positive mood, center your thoughts on the outcome of your desire, and love what you are doing, you are in a position to optimally manifest that which your heart most desires. Wallace Wattles, in his 1910 book The Science of Getting Rich, noted that when you live closer to the source of wealth and abundance and align yourself in harmony with that, you get more of what you seek from the source. Living closer to the source, as Wattles calls it, might prompt thoughts of appreciation, gratitude, and love toward the unnamed, unknowable source. Such emotionally charged thought attracts more of the same to the individual.
How can an artist use love to create?
A passion for mosaics, for example, can lead the mosaicist to learn everything involved in the craft, study classical works, and develop a vision for creating his own masterful and unique works.
