“Many of the things people do for other people are for the purpose of receiving love in exchange. You may have been taught that love was something you had to earn through your good behavior and through fulfilling other people’s needs. You may have trouble setting boundaries with others, thinking that to do so might hurt their feelings or push away their love. If you think love comes to you only when you earn or deserve it, it is time to experience the magnetic quality of  soul love.
“Reflect on your relationship with the person you have selected to soul link with. Are you working hard to earn this person’s love, doing things you do not truly want to do? Are you being pulled between doing what you think the other person wants you to do, so that this person will love you, and fulfilling your own goals, aspirations and soul’s directions? What do you think this person might do, or how might this person feel, if you stop doing the things you’re doing to earn love?
“Sense your heart center, filled with your soul’s magnetic love. It is not what you say or do; it is the love that is the essence of your being that draws people to you and keeps them with you. Fill your heart center with your soul’s love. Soul link and radiate the magnetic quality of love to the person you have chosen. Feel  how magnetic your love is to receiving love in return.
“Translate your soul connection into a statement that defines for you the new way you were going to think about this relationship. You might say something such as, ‘I offer you soul love. Is the most important gift I can give you. I now magnetize the highest and best of our relationship has to offer.’
“…Feel the difference between being magnetic to love and working hard for love. When you magnetize love you stay in the center of your being and in touch with your soul. Love flows out from you and draws love to you. You do not send your awareness out to others to anticipate their needs and moods so you can then behave in certain ways to gain their love.
“When you are magnetic to love you stop doing things you do not want to do so others will love you.
“Instead you do things that are loving to yourself.
“When you’re magnetic to love you’re not dependent upon one person as your source of love; you can receive love from anywhere and everywhere.
“You are serene because you know you can experience an abundance of love by radiating soul love that magnetizes love in all of its forms and expressions to you.”
