I usually say oms not bombs but I’d change my tune for love bombs. Everything is better showered in and softened by love bomb dust. The boffins at insta must’ve been reading my mind when they created the ‘Heart Eyes’ filter. You can’t help but feel loved-up when you imagine love arrows and hearts coming to/ through/ from the person/s in front of you. Sometimes it might be easy to picture (exhibit A: hot guy at the gym) and sometimes it might be harder (exhibit B: accountant giving you extortionate tax bill) but either way it is helpful.

You can even send love bombs ahead of time. Marianne Williamson, spiritual teacher and giver of many Oprah ‘a-ha moments’, recommends we “blast people with love.” This means, before we go on a date, into a meeting, on a job interview, or anything else in life, we should send love in our minds to the people and the situation. We can say, “the only thing going on here is, I am going to bless that person, they are going to bless me. I don’t know if I’m supposed to get that job. My only agenda is that God’s will be done”. Substitute the Universe/ Taylor Swift for God as needed.

Everyone you come into contact with is your teacher and the only timetabled subject is Love Bombs 101. Rejection by gym guy? Forgiveness instead of anger.  Invoiced by accountant? Patience instead of frustration. Marianne says there is a something at work called ‘Divine Compensation’, where if anyone does something to harm us, the universe jumps right on it because it is ‘self-organising and self-correcting’. This means the universe will make sure that if something is taken from us by another person in the material world, it will be given back to us. But if our hearts remained closed, we won’t be open to receive it. So I’ll be trying to stay open hearted to receive my love, dignity and thousands of dollars back.

To get into this open-hearted state, it is helpful to meditate. Visualise love bombs flowing to/through/from you, breathe love-love-love in and out, send love ahead to the places you’ll go and the people you’ll meet and have love in your head and love on your feet. To stay in this love-bombed state throughout the day, listen to loved-up music (shouldn’t be hard to find, it’s only 99.5% of all the songs ever), try to choose the most loving thoughts and actions you can in each moment, draw love-hearts on everything and see everyone with the Heart-eyes filter even if they complain to the gym manager about your staring.

Try it and see. Life looks extra purdy with a love bomb haze and if the running man’s not keen maybe the cycling guy is.

Lyrics: I thought you into my life, woah
Look at my mind, yeah
No better place or a time
Look how they align
Universe must have my back
Fell from the sky into my lap
And I know you know that you’re my soulmate and all that

I’m like ooh, ooh
My whole life got me ready for you, ooh
Got me happy, happy
I’ma be happy, happy, yeah
I’ma be happy, happy
Won’t get no crying from me, yeah
