Songs have been sung. Poems have been written. Scriptures have been spoken. People have professed it in creative ways. It is used to heal, it is used in celebration, it is used in mourning, and it is used to connect souls.
The statement “Love is Love” is true in the simplest and the most complicated form. Love is energy, it is feeling, it is emotion, it is light, it is “being”. Love is energy focused. It can heal the wounded. It can lift the lowest souls. Love rescues. Love moves you to courage again. Love is freedom. Love gives us the vision to see the things that feel far away and love’s energy draws us into those who support us. Love erases all the blurriness and sees the truth. Love gives us grace and courage. Love is strength and our anchor, love is hope and never fails. Love is a feeling, energy, movement, an action, it is a smile, a hug, a word. Love is strength, hope, laughter, it is tears, and it is healing. It is the most powerful energy we know. Love is a fighter. If you love, you will fight for what you love. Love becomes your purpose, your “why”
Now that we know all these wonderful things about love, let’s explore the feeling we have when love is felt? It will be different for everyone so it is hard to describe and have it be consistent across life and souls. How we receive and give love has everything to do with our experiences and how we were taught about love.
Or is it?
Love is free to give and receive, what tends to happen is at times we place meanings and conditions on love and it changes pure love into a game with expectations and it is no longer free unconditional love. What if we were to set our intention to shift that love to pure love and avoid expectations then and only then we are open to receive love in its pure unrestricted meaning. Expressing love can be a tiny bit tricky because of these expectations and rules placed on the word. Can love have a fear component? Absolutely. I mean what if your love is rejected is that a reason to not love? I say heck no. Love is your gift and if it is not accepted, it’s still ok; you have sent the unconditional energy of love out to others, there are no conditions.
I want to focus on the love that heals and the power of focused love energy and just how powerful it can be. I am sure we have all heard the statement “sending you love” this could be across town, across the country, or perhaps even across the ocean deep. So how does one receive that? And why do we tend to show love and affection to those who are sick or dying or those who have lost or are suffering? Does it go back to us being scared? But of course! What if we place an entirely different meaning on those expectations of love, and simply express love as well as take in the energy of love. How amazing does that feel?
Picture this. Arriving for a yoga class the teacher whom I have met only a couple of times, takes the time to remember me by name, smiles and freely gives me a hug. It is not just a hug, he takes the time to make a connection with me and remains present in that moment. The beautiful love energy was intense. There were no expectations or meanings associated with this hug. It was pure joy and love energy, I giggle and say I didn’t want to let go. Just for the simple fact, there was a genuine unconditional connection that is full of love.
Now, what do you suppose would happen if we as a collective sent this pure unconditional love energy out into the world with this same intense focus? Through the power of focus and intention just like the power of prayer many people sending love energy or praying for another send that energy to that person. When I say energy I mean actual energy that our emotion creates which creates motion. As stated above, love is the energy we send from our entire being not just our hearts. What is amazing is we can share this energy with others if we simply just focus our love. I have had experiences talking to people across oceans feeling the love I send because it is focused; It is felt through words, images, and smiles.
Now there is the other side the most important side and that is accepting the love you are given. Yep, I said it! I say let the energy of love crash over you and heal you with powerful energy. Healing begins with love. Love from self, others, the universe, or God grounds us and brings back to present life so to speak.
All we need is love and we all have it In us to provide it to ourselves and to others but at times we are challenged to find the love within ourselves and that is when we need another’s love more than any other time. Now is not the time to reject love and remember fear is the most intense blocker of love and healing.
If we live in our whole hearts we are more accepting of love. We can give it freely. We cannot have an ego and love at that same time. It is like gratitude and ego; you have to pick one or the other, you can’t have both,
Love is so important and beautiful to me I wrote this and have it tattooed on my back as a reminder to give and receive love;
The purest and highest vibration is unconditional love because there is no judgment, there is no agenda, there is no doubt, there is pure friendship, acts of kindness, courage, bravery, integrity and honour, this is the place where you shine your authentic light. It isn’t about money, glamour or popularity, it is about your whole heart and how you share it as you touch everyone throughout every decision you make.
Believe in the power of focused love and you will begin to live in your whole heart.
