Where to Meet New Lovers (or New Friends)
While all this rootwork and spellwork is quite powerful, if you don’t follow it up with putting yourself out into the flow of life for your perfect person to meet you, you are hiding your light under a bushel basket. Together the spellwork and the action will open up multiple opportunities for you and your true love to cross paths. Remember that when you are both intentional and out in the world to receive those intentions, you give the Universe more opportunities to bring you amazing synchronicities.
The following list below is a great resource for you to brainstorm activities that sound appealing to you but also open up opportunities to meet new people. Look through this list and see which things sound interesting to you, Google them and then follow up by checking them out by yourself or with a friend. Try several, make an effort to meet the people who organize the groups or events and then stick with the ones that really make you happy. They will put you in the flow of life, allow you to meet new people and create the space for your perfect love to come to you.
