Is This Guy THE ONE?


I have just recently met a guy. Is he the one?

Dear Keeley, Only you can find the correct answer to your question.

Here’s a good way to do it: At the beginning of your daily meditation time, pray to receive an answer to your question. Then set the question aside, breathe, clear your mind and open your heart. At the close of your meditation, ask your question again, and wait peacefully to hear the answer. Try not to be attached to whether it is yes or no.

If you don’t get an answer immediately, ask again at your next meditation session. Sometimes, the answer will come later, when you are not expecting it. But you will recognize that it is true, whenever it does come, because it will be from God and not from your own mind.

Another thing you might try is to say the affirmation below as instructed:

Paramhansa Yogananda’s Affirmation for Selecting a Life Companion
“Heavenly Father, bless me that I choose my life companion
according to Thy law of perfect soul union.”

“This affirmation is best practiced just after meditation. Say it loudly a few times, then more softly, then whispering, then mentally, then subconsciously, and finally superconsciously. Work with this affirmation for at least six months, with deep faith. If you have established a real attunement with God through meditation and continuous affirmation of this prayer request, you will find a suitable companion; or, if you have been drawn toward one who is fundamentally inharmonious, the Divine Father will bring about circumstances that will prevent your making a wrong choice.”
