While for some this question might come across a little to “woo woo”, for others the question makes complete sense. Let’s face it, when it comes to attracting (or repelling for that mater) people into our lives, a lot depends upon the kind of energy that we not only give off, but also are able to receive. Understood this way, balancing chakras in the hopes of attracting a soulmate seems completely appropriate.
In this latest Time Out Dubai post, Vineetha Menon talks about her recent experience with a workshop intended to help her unlock her heart chakra in the hopes of attracting true love. According to Menon, although most people believe that each person has only one soulmate, in reality a soulmate is a person who is most compatible to where you are at right now.
It’s been a while since I meditated, so when we’re asked to imagine a ball of light travelling through our body and opening up our chakras, I see mine on fast-forward, hurtling about inside and my chakra lights lighting up like a rainbow pinball machine. It’s unnerving but supposedly quite normal; I should get better with practice. The deeper we get into the workshop, the more interesting it becomes, particularly with a partner reading, where everyone pairs up with the intention of seeing into each other’s hearts. Yes, I know, but hear me out. We hold hands, look square into each other’s eyes, ask for ‘permission’ to look inside their heart, and then close our eyes and focus. Initially, I sense my partner (who, by the way, is engaged) is kind and caring, but I focus harder for something more specific and feel that he’s good at making decisions, does a lot of charitable acts, and that he financially supports his family. I don’t know why I sense this but I’m surprised to hear from him that it’s true. When it comes round to his experience, he explains that instead of him probing, I pull him straight in and show him around excitedly. Without knowing I’m writer, he says I ‘love stories’, am ‘funny and entertaining’ and that I ‘like to cook’. The last one throws me a bit – it’s not something I share openly with others, but then I never thought I’d go around pulling people into my heart either.
