The founder and CEO of I Deserve Love, which offers online courses for people looking for love, and the author of various books, including Attracting the Love of Your Life: 30-Day Manifestation Guide, Jacqueline knows a thing or two about love. Education aside (she studied psychology with a focus on Neuro-linguistic programming), Jacqueline knows from personal experience what it’s like to feel let down by love and relationships. After working on herself and “manifesting” a healthy relationship, she met her current partner and father of her child.

Jacqueline told a little more about love manifestation and how it can help people find and maintain healthy relationships.

“Manifestation is to create the outcome that you want,” she said. “Love manifestation is to create love and bring a person into your life.”

Simply put, it’s the idea that one can find a partner solely by thinking about him or her. For those not entirely convinced by this, or who would be quick to call it “airy fairy”, Jacqueline recalled her own experience.

“I know that manifestation is real because I have seen it work firsthand for myself,” she explained. “If you would have told me six years ago that I would be happily married with kids, I would never have believed you. I’ve seen the techniques work for my clients and my friends, so I would say manifestation magic is real.”

Manifestation is a growing trend on social media, especially among younger audiences. But Jacqueline, as well as fellow manifestation believers Roxie Nafousi (author of Manifest: Seven Steps To Living Your Best Life and Manifest: Dive Deeper) and Rhonda Byrne (author of The Secret), to name but two, are pushing the idea into the mainstream. It’s not just for Generation Z, they seem to be saying.

So, how can one go about manifesting love?

“One exercise that I have my clients work with is visualisation, where they do a mediation and picture their ideal partner,” Jacqueline explained. “I also ask them to practise creating a list of eight qualities they want in a partner. When doing both these exercises it’s extremely important you are specific and reframe from listing surface level qualities.
