Q&A: How to Manifest a Marriage Proposal
I’ve seen my share of beach weddings in Maui this week, so it seems serendipitous to post this reader’s question about what it takes to manifest a marriage proposal.
Here’s the question from an LOA-savvy aspiring bride:
I feel like I’ve tried everything to manifest a marriage proposal from him, and while over the last year I seemed to get close (he brings it up and talks about our future, his mom even mentions it) – I still haven’t been asked.
In fact, a number of the girls in my life have gotten engaged in the last 5 months!
So if I’ve been thinking about getting engaged to my boyfriend for the last year, why hasn’t it happened yet?
- I’ve tried visualizations of him proposing night after night for months
- I’ve tried living my daily life as if we were already married
- I’ve tried making myself feel the actual feelings I would have if we were already married
- I’ve tried letting go of the expectation and just being happy with what is now
… and everything in between. It’s just not coming.
I’m aware that my focus is so hugely on the fact that it’s not here, and that is a main part in the reason it’s not here.
But even when I try to not focus on that and be happy with the now, it seems I can only keep that focus for so long until my mind goes back to what’s not there – a ring on my finger, from him.
I’m hoping you might have some words of wisdom for me or tell me to try something that I haven’t tried. Just anything! I really hope to hear back from you!
Okay, readers, you’re up. Let’s help a sister out with some LOA friendly tips.
