How Can I Love You?

Five words that could change the way you think about how we communicate and listen to the ones we love.
This past summer I had the privilege of attending a PSI (personal development) seminar. It was a wonderful experience that I was fortunate enough to attend with my spouse. There were interesting break-out exercises .that resulted in many personal insights. One of my favorite sessions was the “How can I love you” exercise.

How can I love you? Say this to your loved one and see what happens. Sit across from each other… hold hands and look into one another’s eyes. Just enjoy looking until you feel connected. You can whisper or ask out loud. How can I love you? Sit together in a safe space and be fully engaged in active listening. Fully and completely. Listen. Give your partner plenty of time to reply, as some may have never been asked and have to think about it. When your partners is done speaking… ask again How can I love you? Continue as guided. Change places. Does it feel empowering to clearly state how you feel? Was it easier to listen or speak? What a fun and creative way to fine- tune our personal relationships.

Shining Your Light for Others

(Reposted with permission from Ann’s Website, Omnigirl.net)

You always give love to others and try to support them,  but one of the most important things you can do for others is to love yourself. When you totally accept who you are and forgive yourself for perceived wrongdoings in the past, you can truly start loving yourself. This shows in everything you do and say. You automatically attract others who want to be around you. They can feel your “positive energy”  giving them a sense of calmness.  Many of us believe that if we love ourselves, others will think we are boastful. This does not mean bragging about yourself, it just means being yourself and sharing the love with others. When you truly love yourself, you can give love unconditionally to others. You do not need someone to  “complete you and make you happy”- you already have that from within.  It is such a free feeling to be around someone who does not expect anything from you to win their affection.

This quote by Marianne Williamson https://marianne.com/ is one of my favorites in remembering how to love myself: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s for everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

You do not realize how much a kind word or action can mean to another person. The story ” A Simple Gesture” by John W. Schlatter tells of a boy in high school who was contemplating suicide. Another boy came by on his way home from school and helped him pick up some things he had dropped. They talked and became friends. He later told his friend that by his kind actions, he decided he  wanted to live that day   http://www.chickensoup.com/book-story/36173/a-simple-gesture

Recently a close friend of mine told me that my kindness in junior high school had a big influence on her life. I did not realize it at the time. I tend to talk to everyone- just ask anyone who knows me. By the simple act of being a friend who listens, I changed someone’s life. What more could you ask for in this earthly plane, than to make a real difference for someone else?  It is amazing how wonderful people are, even the ones that don’t appear to be on the outside. If you take a little time to get to know them, you can learn and grow from everyone you meet.

When I was trying to decide whether to go to a workshop on publishing an e-book, I told a friend I didn’t have anything to write about. She said,”Yes you do! Do you know how much your behavior influences others?”  I had double knee replacement 5 years ago and kept going to physical therapy, even though the pain was unbelievable, so I could go whitewater rafting on Class 5 rapids six months later.  She told me that my actions made her determined to start walking and lose weight.  She realized that her excuses were small compared to mine for not taking care of her health.

The next time you think a kind thought about how nice someone looks, how kind their smile is, or how they make you feel, tell them. It only takes a minute of your time. It could be a major impact on their lives. Never underestimate a smile or kind word – it is worth more than you know.

If you would like to begin your journey to self-love, I would suggest starting a 10-minute meditation practice daily. Begin your day with at least five things you are grateful for. Also, think of five things you love about yourself. Over time, it gets easier. The time you invest in yourself will be manifested in your life many times over.

Navigating This Shift… to ME

We have definitely shifted into a different space. The trip I took to Mt. Shasta in September was so powerful that I haven’t been able to fully return into my former home reality. I no longer feel like there is a specific place that I can call home. I keep longing for something that I can’t put my finger on.  I have this feeling I should move, but every time I think I’ve found a place that would be good, it doesn’t feel right and the search begins again.  There doesn’t seem to be a place that captures what I’m feeling inside.

In addition, I’ve been faced with issues that I thought I had worked out. Feelings of victimization, self-loathing, abandonment, loneliness, judgment, not being heard, fear of confrontation, feelings of self- sacrifice, self-judgment, feelings of worthlessness. Heavy stuff, things that I didn’t realize were still profoundly affecting me. I mean, how much of this do I have inside? It feels insurmountable at times. I have been brought to my knees AGAIN.  Almost every relationship showing me things  to shift, but yet are so challenging to face. The relationship with my parents and siblings is at the moment the one that has been mirroring issues for me the most. I knew that I had been changed forever when in Shasta but I had underestimated how much. I really thought that I could come home, take a couple of weeks to re-acclimate and go back to my routine life. But that isn’t the case! There is no such thing as “going back to routine.” That time has passed, and I am writing this so that all who read this can find comfort in the fact that so many of us are currently feeling the same way. Everyone I’ve spoken with has a similar story. We are all being pushed so hard to step into our full Divinity, our Truth. So many mirrors being put up so that we don’t stop moving forward. The Universe is no longer waiting around! It’s been doing this for some time, I know, but I feel we’ve gone into warp speed over the last couple of months. When I can finally get my head above water, out of all those feelings of separation, I can see all of it from a higher perspective. In those moments of clarity… my goodness, how beautiful and perfect it all is!

It’s only when I get out of mind and sit in the vibration of Love, the vibration that is ME, that I get the clarity. That’s when I get the peace. Although, I have to say, those times have been few and far between. There are many days, moments within the day that I have to constantly remind myself to allow and flow, and man, that has been really hard to do! Ego is holding on with a death grip! It’s been a challenging time fighting it. The thought of just going back to the way I was would be so much easier… but that isn’t an option, because the feelings of being stagnant are even more terrifying than the self work, which I know will end in something wonderful.

The perfection is that all of the things that I am being shown are exactly what’s standing in my way of true self-love, and it is only through this that we will be able to do what we came here to do. It’s only when we get through every last thing that gets in the way of loving ourselves completely as the perfect Divine beings we are, that we’ll be able to go forward without fear or doubt or anything and be exactly what we were created to be, pure Love. Love that knows no boundaries. Love that encompasses all. Love that is our Oneness. Love that needs no words, or thoughts, or physicality. Love that will just Be, Be the Divine that we already are but we can’t yet see because of all the blinders we’ve put up. They are falling away. This is what we are all being pushed to realize. Because there is no work to do really; that’s just an illusion. Everything we are being shown for us to shift are just messages to ourselves, reminders, the bread crumbs we have left so we can find our way back.  All of it so we can remember WE ARE already all of it. We are the Divine. We are Perfect. We are ALL.

Love – Outside of Space and Time

I hear it all the time…outside of space and time. Indicating that if you can’t be present at the appointed time, you still can achieve the same results. But I have never really thought about what it means other than whenever it works for me in my timeline. But that still involves time. And I think about connecting to whatever is outside of space and time, so in my mind that still involves space. What truly is outside of space and time? I see removing time and space from my life leaving me with only vibration. Universal, Eternal, Being. No limits, conditions or judgments. Actually not even words.

As I move towards living knowing that I am everything and that the Universes within me go as far in as the Universes outside of me go out, everything is up for redefinition.  And what better place to begin that process than with myself? How do I meet myself?  I begin outside of space and time and the obvious answer is in pure love. And since there is no space and time, what does that vibration feel like? It is the vibration of me at my core level. The Me I always have been for eons even before space and time. Me as pure potential. Me as Love. True self love. Pure, simple and powerful.

Redefining myself as this vibration brings about the crumbling of all aspects of me that are no longer supported in this vibration. How freeing?! What an opportunity?! And chaos!! I find that staying outside of space and time as well as trusting my vibration is crucial to allow this rebirthing to occur. Those aspects of my life and me that are in harmony with my vibration are magnified and attract other like vibrations. Easily. And those that aren’t fall away and disappear. Easily, all based on self-love outside of space and time.

I also trust that everything that is in my life has meaning or a message for me. Created and sent by me. I listen and feel into the vibration of it and allow it to align with my self-love or not and fall away. It is a new way of moving through space and time. My new way of Being, living and honoring my unique vibration within the symphony of the Multiverse.

Living Self-Love outside of space and time within space and time.

Agelessness, Purpose, and Love

This year, I wrestled with the thought of getting older the weeks before my birthday, freaking myself out for a little bit! I ask myself now, what was that all about? I’m still here, the same person I was yesterday, but with a renewed sense of purpose.I am still experiencing life fully, I love myself, I am able to learn new things, and life is exciting. I have so much to be grateful for!

We place so much value on age and being “forever young.” It’s not about our age, it’s how we feel within! I (literally) “tripped myself up”… I fell in a hole off the sidewalk while outside walking a few days after my birthday. I felt handicapped, not being able to move around freely and pain free. However, it gave me the time and a chance to look at my life and see that there is always something new to learn, to love myself and be grateful for, at any age or place in my life. For ALL of us, it’s never too late to change directions or to learn something new… including something you might have been putting off or on hold for a long time, because you kept yourself too busy to look at new possibilities and chances.

Where in your life are you out of balance or harmony? Where do you feel stuck, inflexible and undervalued? Do you need a change in direction? Is change difficult for you? Do you feel guilty in experiencing joy and pleasure?

What gives your life purpose and direction? What is preventing you from moving forward? Are you present in the moment?

Make a decision and start moving forward towards the new goal, even if it is baby steps, one step at a time.

My new mantra is:

I step forward in life with joy, grace and ease, balance and harmony.

I am willing to change with the times. I accept and give thanks to all the pleasures life has to offer.

And so it is!

Here is a little poem that came to me:

Love is pure.
Love is true.
Love is forever.
Love is unconditional.
Love does not depend on age, looks, money,
Jobs, status, loneliness or
fulfillment of expectations…
your own or others.

Not wanting to look deeply at
ourselves in the mirror,
our own perceived lack,
our “needs and wants” to fill that hole within.

We are whole already.
Love starts within. With full acceptance of ourselves.
Being happy with who we are, even if we believe we are not perfect.
We are perfect in God’s eyes, here to learn and Love.
We are divine beings connected to all there is.
We are Love!
