When you feel love - I mean really feeling love from within, to the point of being grateful to live your life - you begin to see and embrace love in everyone and everything.
Living in this compassionate space isn't something you have to rely on others to give to you, nor is it something you just go out and get. Filling yourself up with love is not like going to the store and buying a box full of heart-shaped chocolates, even though that is a good start to personally winning over my heart.
Love is a connection to the divine.
Love is the divine and part of who we are at the very core of our being.
Love is also a choice. There is no need to wait to feel love; you can choose to fill yourself with love TODAY!
A couple of years back, I connected with someone who has always left a beautiful imprint on my heart. She was just so insanely happy. Not fake happy either, she was full of pure joy and bliss. Her butt even wiggled a bit, like a puppy dog, when she hugged you. I can still envision that big smile on her face and feel the joy that radiated from being in her presence.
Curious, I asked her about this happiness. She shared that life wasn't always good to her and she woke up one day and decided, “This is it, I'm going to be happy!” She never looked back. This is who she is from the core, and everyone receives the gift of pure love, simply from being in her presence.
For those of you trying to evolve and initiate spiritually in life, the one thing that holds most of us back is self-love. Many get stuck in this place of self-judgement, self-criticism and old, outdated beliefs about ourselves.
If you desire to feel more love, feel more compassion, and experience more laughter and joy, here are some tips to help you begin living from this place of pure love:
- Write down all of the things you love about yourself. (When you can write things down, it makes it more concrete and imprinted upon your mind.)
- Take it a step further . . . write down everything that brings you joy.
- And, finally, write down everything that you are grateful for.
From this list, I want you to take inspired action daily by:
- Looking at this list daily, adding to it as other things come to mind.
- Looking at yourself in the mirror each morning and evening, and out loud or in your mind, say something you love about yourself. (This isn't about filling up your ego, this about expanding your heart!)
- Begin smiling at people daily. Start with one person. Just smile and say hello. Connect with the reaction you receive. It's incredibly heart-warming.
- Taking it a step further by asking one person this week, how you may be of service.
These small actions will create a ripple effect of subtle changes that will begin to expand your heart and unconsciously send out a vibration to others and your surroundings, attracting and illuminating positivity in your life.
When you feel into your heart, embracing unconditional love and expressing your gratitude for every little, beautiful gift the Universe has bestowed upon you, you will begin to walk a path sparking miracles and synchronicities in your wake.
You have access to love 24/7.
There is no need to look outside of yourself. Your natural state is one of joy, happiness, and pure bliss. When you begin to access this from within, your outer world can't help but raise its vibration to match.
Life is meant to be lived passionately, joyfully, peacefully in connection with oneness - which is pure joy, not in so-called comparison in the judgement of others or yourself.
The provoking questions I want to leave you with today are. . .
How can you begin to love more than you could ever imagine? And, how can you begin to offer this love, in service to others in a way that feels good and right to you?
You hold the power to raise the vibration of everything in the world that surrounds you, all through love.
Sending you much love & gratitude today and every day.
