What does the Beltane Festival have to do with modern love? First, let me explain what Beltane is about.
The holiday dates back before Christianity to Pagan origins and celebrates fertility. Beginning on the night of April 30th with fire ceremonies, the holiday runs through May 1st ending with a traditional May pole dance.
Celebrate the Sacred Union
The Beltane Festival is also called May Day; an event that represents the sacred union of the God and Goddess at the peak of spring. Basically, this is a celebration of abundance, fertility, sexuality, passion, vitality and joy.
The focus is on conception and moving into action. Centuries ago, couples were bound together for a year and a day during this festival, and then free to part ways afterwards or remain together.
If you are single and reading this, you probably think the Beltane Festival has nothing to do with you. But, it sure can! Here are five ways to harness the energy of this ancient holiday to manifest love in your life now.
The Beltane Festival celebration is focused on fertility and abundance. What if you could tap into that abundance to attract lots of men to date? The more people you meet, the better your chances to find one good match.
Women often complain about a shortage of good men. Shift that perspective to imagine abundance and watch the magic unfold! And the potential suitors show up!
As the temperature warms up, people emerge from winter hibernation and naturally become more social. That’s why this is the best season for dating. Singles are innately friendlier this time of year, so you have more opportunities to meet people.
Every man you meet brings you one man closer to “The One” for you.
I’m sure you’ve heard how love blossoms in the spring? It’s the traditional time to fall in love, hearkening back to the beginning of living a more stationary life with the advent of farming. Many animals are born in the spring as well.
This timing for coupling up and love is embedded in our very cells and DNA.
That’s why you want to take time to “conceive” your own love story and nurture it into reality. Leverage the Beltane Festival’s fertile energy to manifest your heart’s desire.
The more time you spend envisioning a happy love life now, the faster you can attract it. This is exactly how the Law of Attraction works. Like attracts like, so start picturing and feeling your loving partner as a real possibility today.
What are you passionate about? Do you love to take walks, paint, or learn something new? Maybe you enjoy cooking, close friendships or are driven by causes? Now is the time to get busy.
When you dive into your passions, you spend time doing something you LOVE. In turn, that makes you very attractive to others who are also involved. Following your passions is a great way to meet new people, so enjoy!
One of the best ways to feel more joy is to appreciate the little things in life. What makes you smile? Perhaps you like to feel the sun on your face, walk in the rain or breathe in salty air from the ocean. Time in nature helps people relax, feel more connected and hopeful.
You can find lots of articles about “earthing” or “taking a forest bath” which tout the benefits of time spent off the grid and man-made pavement.
There is no question that being out in nature has a positive impact on your energy, making you feel more alive. Did you know joyful people are far more attractive to the opposite sex? Whether it’s going outside to find your joy or reading a book on the couch – go for it!
You’ve already “conceived” of the idea of falling in love, so the next step is taking action to make it your reality. What can you do? Here are three proven methods to connect with new people, mingle with men and find love.
Walk Your Dog
Dog owners tend to be very friendly. Strike up a conversation with an owner at a dog park or any outdoor area. Talking about a person’s dog is a great opener. I personally know two couples who met this way.
You don’t need your own dog to make this work either. Walk a friend’s dog if you have to!
Make Someone’s Day
When you smile at others, you not only make their day, but you feel happier too. When was the last time you smiled at a man walking by you?
You can also “pay it forward” by covering the cost of a coffee for the person behind you in line. Bringing more kindness into the world will brighten your day for sure.
Open a door for someone with a big smile. Moments of connection and joy like this make your life far more enjoyable so don’t miss out. Try any of these ideas with the men you notice too! These actions can be great conversation openers.
Beltane Festival time is perfect for this sort of thing.
Get Fixed Up
Most people know about 250 people between family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, church members, etc. So, if you know 250 people, and they each know 250 people that’s 62,500 people who might be able to fix you up!
At 41, I met my husband on a blind date after meeting his sister in a bar. Blind dates WORK which is why it’s time to ask your circle of friends to keep their eyes open for you.
Certainly with everything you’ve just read about the Beltane Festival and spring time’s natural urge to fall in love should help convince you that this is a great time to look for and attract love.
I hope this has spurred some of your own ideas as well and you feel more motivated to get involved in creating the love life you dream of. Most singles do little to meet new people, so I’m hoping to light a little fire underneath you!
