Who is my soulmate, you ask? On the Law of Attraction and Love page, I mentioned that every time you saw a trait you didn't like in someone you were dating, you sent a "rocket of desire" to the Universe saying what you DID want for a love that IS compatible... and the Universe added that to the "vibrational escrow" of your ideal relationship, just waiting for you to line up with it.
So, WHO is my soulmate? Your soulmate is the person that embodies EVERY trait you've ever launched a rocket of desire to the Universe about!
Essentially, the Universe already knows what you want, but do you?
The first step to manifesting your soulmate is to KNOW what you want. And, no, you can't have Brad Pitt; he's taken. LOL. You can start manifesting your soulmate RIGHT NOW by creating your ideal compatibility list! Let the Law of Attraction find you love!
Plus, to discern the right guy from the wrong guy, one of the best pieces of dating advice I can give you is to make this relationship compatibility list and then see how your dates stand up to it as you go out and get to know them.
Having a "Who is My Soulmate" list and sticking to it will keep you on track towards finding compatibility with a GREAT match and keep you out of relationships that will make you unhappy.
Another benefit is that creating your "Who is My Soulmate" list sends laser-focused asking to the Universe. In other words, you could ask for a man who has plenty of free time to spend with you, but then you may end up with a man who is chronically unemployed!
The key is to be specific about what you want, and then in another section, we'll work on any resistance you might have to believing that you can have exactly that. You deserve to have true love with someone compatible!
In her book, Are You the One for Me?, relationship expert Barbara De Angelis describes one of my favorite processes for creating a "Who is My Soulmate" list - categorize what you want in 10 different, but very important areas.
Make sure to write your "Who is My Soulmate" list down so that you can frequently look at it (as a way to make yourself feel good). It's best if you can type it up in a Microsoft Word document or something so you can revise it whenever you like.

Take about 30 minutes to sit someplace quiet and write down 5 to 10 or more qualities you want a compatible match to have for each category and I'll give you some examples for each:
WHO IS MY SOULMATE:
- Physical Style: This is appearance, eating habits, personal hygiene, and exercise
So, you might have under physical compatibility - exercises regularly, doesn't drink, smoke or do drugs, taller than 5' 8", cute/handsome (to me), cooks healthfully
- Emotional Compatibility: Attitude towards romance and affection, how he treats you, how he expresses feelings
For example: Very affectionate, and ok with PDA (public displays of affection), supportive of me and my dreams, likes answering my questions, warm, caring, generous with his feelings
- Social Style: Personality traits and how he interacts with others.
For example: Outgoing, likes socializing with friends, good sense of humor
- Intellectual Compatibility: Educational background, attitude towards learning, culture, and the world
For example: Likes learning new things, enjoys going to museums, enjoys philosophical discussions, college educated a +
- Sexual Compatibility: attitude, skill, ability to enjoy
For example: Loves my body, is a great kisser, very sensual, likes to cuddle, no hang-ups, takes direction well
- Communication Style: how he communicates and attitude towards communication
For example: Very articulate, good writer – writes me sweet notes, texts and emails, loves to talk, and tells me what is going on inside him
- Professional/Financial Style: relationship with money, work and organizational habits
For example: financially responsible, enjoys his career and is doing well, honest and ethical, ambitious and has goals, generous with himself and others
- Personal Growth Compatibility: attitude toward self-improvement, willingness to work on relationship
For example: committed to learning about self, reads books, blogs, etc. about growth and relationships and implements them, makes concrete changes
- Spiritual Compatibility: attitude toward higher power, spiritual practices, philosophy of life, moral views
For example: believes in god or the universe, meditates, optimistic outlook on life, believes in Law of Attraction
- Interests and Hobbies: For example, loves the same movies and tv and will watch and snuggle with me, loves to hike, eat out, walk, enjoy sunsets, and play in the ocean
Who is my soulmate? One way to be REALLY thorough is to look back at previous relationships and see what WASN'T compatible and then put the OPPOSITE on your compatibility list. So, if your last boyfriend was a morning person and you don't roll out of bed 'til noon, add "night person" to Social Style.
Notice here that something like their financial picture is only 10% of the entire list and the physical is also only 10% of the entire list. Also, if you have anything that is negative, you need to turn it into a positive. For example, "He is not a crazy driver" should become "The man who is my soulmate drives like I am precious cargo" and "He is not commitment phobic" should become "He is capable of being in a serious relationship with me".
