In life we experience one of two things: Love or fear.
We know we are experiencing love when we feel good, life makes us happy and we are deeply satisfied and content.
Unfortunately for most people, this kind of experience is only fleeting, if existent at all.
Because we live in a fear-driven society.
We are brought up to fear money, to fear sex, to fear other people, to fear losing our job, to fear having our heart broken, to fear life itself.
It’s bred into us at a young age.
And so we go about our lives experiencing fear-induced results such as anger, abuse, disease, pain, greed, competition, addiction, selfishness, obsession, corruption, guilt, violence and war.
Sounds horrible, but this is how many people experience life.
Yet we can make the choice to choose love over fear in everything we can do.
Really we can!
Every time we feel a negative emotion we can make the conscious decision to love instead.
To feel love in our body.
We are love at our core, so it’s simply a matter of learning how to reconnect with that loving part of ourself that has the ability to drown out the fear.
To rescue us from our own undoing.
I believe all of us could do with more love in our life, because love heals.
Love heals us of our mental and emotional wounds.
Love has even been scientifically proven to heal people of serious life-threatening illnesses.
Those who have lots of love in their life barely ever get sick.
The fact of the matter is this: Love heals.
That way you can let love in and heal you of your fears and concerns.
Letting love into your life may seem like some woo woo concept made for hippies.
Yet it is far from it.
When infants aren’t held they become sick, even die.
It’s universally understood that children need love, but at what age are people suppose to stop needing love?
Love is as important as oxygen.
When we stray from love we feel it.
Our life reflects it.
We start comparing ourselves to others, we experience lack, pain and struggle and life becomes one uber scary place.
Yet when we come from a loving space, we attract positive people and positive opportunities into our life.
We’re more easily able to materialise a life we’d absolutely adore!
Of course learning to love means being willing to surrender our old ways of thinking about ourselves and others.
When someone lashes out at as in a negative way we can recognise it as what it is: A call for love.
When someone acts from a fear space, it’s because they lack love in their own life.
Our only job in every situation is to let go of our resistance to love.
Stop making love conditional, and love because you CAN.
The places in our personality where we tend to deviate from love are not our faults, but our wounds.
Yet whether emotional of physical, these wounds we carry around with us, can be healed.
Love heals ALL wounds.
The only real problem in our life, and in this world for that matter, is a lack of love.
So my advice is this lovey-dovey month, is love like you’re never loved before.
If you do, I promise you will reap the rewards xx
