Did you ever wonder why some people have lives that just sparkle?
It has certainly piqued my interest. So I started looking into what makes the difference. The answer was really right there in front of my face. And it is the most basic and profound of all needs. It is love. Loving. Living in connection. So what is love worth to our lives?
I think we have all had moments in our lives when we knew that sense of longing. When it seemed that we were not very loved. Or loved ourselves. And when we spiral downward into not feeling loved our entire make up changes. It is amazingly profound how much we need that connection.
Have you heard the expression about failure to thrive babies? It is when the infant has not had that close intimate holding and vibrational energy of being loved. Without that closeness, the infant starts to shrivel, it won’t eat, will not grow, it will not interact.
So if we do not have that as the basic start to our lives. We do not thrive.
How do we find it and keep it in our lives?
LOVING & THRIVING
When we are feeling loved this is what happens:
1. Better relationships
2. We feel better about ourselves
3. We feel healthier
4. Everything in our world is better and changed for the good
5. We participate in ways that lift our endorphins
9. We want to share this joy
11. It is the acknowledgment that we are in the connection of something much larger than us.
12. We are much more self compassionate. We do not judge ourselves. And that in turns leads to no judging of others.
13. Be prepared when you step in your soul’s purpose to feel and live in a complete natural high.
Learning how to surround ourselves with supportive, caring, giving thoughtful people is the answer to thriving. Because that in turns changes how we are thinking about ourselves. And although thriving is an internal mechanism, it is started by a simple act of love.
HOW DO WE ENTER THIS STATE?
For me it began when I was willing to be willing, to hear something new. And that is a vital component. If we are not in a space of openness and willingness we might just miss this life changing opportunity.
For instance, when I started this blog, I just had a feeling pulling me to do this. I had not a clue what might be coming forward. I just followed the pull. In doing so, I have accessed an amazing global community and felt support in ways that I could only dream about.
And as I traverse this forest of words, (an expression I just heard, isn’t it lovely?). I am astounded by the growth and inner love that is just flowing forward and jubilantly sharing.
And in this process, I found my true voice. The voice of my heart. I am in complete gratitude, that, each day feels like a high, a sweet buzz that is just naturally flowing. I am completely amazed by this transformative walk that happened just because I was willing to listen.
That is the most major component. That I walked out of what was, to walk into what could be. Huge step! And it happened because I side stepped my own lack of, to step into my abundance basket of love.
I was able to walk into my soul’s purpose of love because I have a community that offered me the chance to see it. Which in turn made it 3D to me. And that is where the thrive and love become the reason to live.
It’s a feeling that is unlike anything else. It propels us to climb beyond mountains. It allows us to see to new Universes. It brings us the connection of more gifts of our own universe.
In this connection, we feel the expansiveness of joy, gratitude, and love. What better way to live is there?
And when we live in this space, we share this light. And that changes the world. Incredibly powerful, yes?
This is not hyperbole or empty words. This is truly living in our soul’s purpose. And when we are willing to reside there our lives changes in a snap.
Because when we love our life, we are changing the surrounding energetics. Our immediate world changes. We are actually the love that is giving the young infant the ability to thrive.
You know what I mean, I know you have had the experience of feeling like we are living on a mountain top. So what would it be like if we lived there every day?
Now how else would you want to live your life?
Being in a loving space:
First off wrap your arms around yourself and literally give yourself a great big hug!
We are striving to thrive in love. So with this meditation we are going to find that piece of us that is awaiting our love.
Find a comfortable place to be.
Please take 5 deep breaths and exhale slowly.
Then begin to say :
I breathe in joy
I breathe out love
say this at least 7 times.
Feel the changes as you utter these words. Notice how your body is becoming softer and more relaxed.
If you do this twice during your day, you will be seeing great changes in your world. It will allow you to be in the space of thriving and loving. And much more at ease.
Let me know how this works for you.
What is love worth? Everything. Priceless. It is the elixir of life. It is the soul’s purpose. It is the search that we each engage in. And it is not necessarily the romantic love. It is the love of self and possiblity. It is the magic salve of connection, of being part of something much larger than us .
So how do we foster this kind of loving life? By opening our hearts. Letting go of any distractions that are laced in drama or old stories. Allowing ourselves to be the change agent and to shower others with the light of love and thrive.
The joy of being of service, feeds us also in ways that are palpably growing our hearts. So go inside and be your own thriving mechanism and then spread it and share it. It will be an most amazing journey.
Do let me know what you think of all of this please. What are your experiences to what the power of love is?
