I am a romantic, I always have been. I believe in fairy tales and happily ever after. I believe in the power of love to transform and heal. I believe that when love is involved, miracles can occur. So it should be no surprise that I watched the Royal Wedding Saturday. I did so with joy, and in celebration, because what better to lift the resonance in the world, then love?
I found the Reverend Michael Curry’s speech to be so profound, and a further reminder to what I made mention of last week. He said, “There's power in love. Don't underestimate it.” He goes on to detail all the ways the world can change “when love is the way,” ultimately culminating with it bringing forth “a new earth, a new world.” And isn’t that what we want? When we grow spiritually, when we find our way out of our old patterns, when we ask for healing, when we search for more meaning, we are asking for more love in our lives. I’m not talking romantic love, I’m talking about the pure energy of love itself. Love can pierce the illusion of darkness we find ourselves in sometimes. It is a way out of the pain, fear, and separation we feel at times.
As I said last week, “love, bigger and bolder then you ever have.” So what does that mean exactly? How do you “put your love into action” as I called you to do?
First, take a moment and think about someone or something that you love. Even if you cannot think of a single person who elicits a love reaction in you, center yourself and think about something that moves you: a sunset, being in nature, animals, and connect to that feeling you get when thinking about this. The heart opening, an elevated feeling; that’s love. It doesn’t have to look like fireworks and an angelic choir; it can be soft and quiet. It’s a feeling that takes you outside of yourself and into something more. Now sit with that feeling for a moment. Let it lift you. Feel how good it feels. From there, move forward in your visualizing, in your creating, in your prayers, in how you move through your day. Let love be the platform from which you leap.
Maybe your heart has been broken so many times this scares you. What if love lets you down again? Well, what if it doesn’t? What if you connect to the energy of love itself vs. the expression that came through someone who might’ve been wounded. People can distort what love is, but recognize that when it is a distortion, it’s not really love. It may have been called love, but it’s not. Be willing to open your heart, even a little bit, as scary as that might feel, and connect to a love greater then what you’ve seen. Just be willing to find love in even the tiniest acts of compassion or goodwill.
Even if you are open already, you can always be willing to allow more love in your life. Every little thing you do can be infused with love, if you let it.
This most importantly pertains to self-love. How can you love yourself more this week? Just explore that. Maybe, instead of getting mad at yourself for xyz, you love yourself instead. How much better will the world, and your world be, when love is more present, more visible, more active.
As I said last week, when you align yourself with love, miracles can occur. Allow yourself more love.
Me, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
