I have been receiving some lessons and guidance around needing to feel acknowledged and valued, and the omnipresence of Love. I’ve been allowing myself to slip into feeling like a victim, and anytime that happens, I cut myself off from Love. Losing my center, I topple into addictive fear-based thought patterns and go into protection mode. My fight or flight response is activated, and I point my finger with shame and blame. You see, I am so damn human. And I just want you to know I fall all the time too. Consciously allowing my shadow to dance herself silly, okay maybe a little reckless, and then complaining about where I land and the darkness and loneliness that meets me there.
When we stray into the shadowy corners of our existence, when we start to separate and move into isolation, where it gets murky and unclear on our path, we feel less loved and lovable. While we are never separate from Love and Source energy, we can choose to focus outside of it, leaning away from it. If we didn’t fumble around this way and falter out of our harmonic Divine alignment however, we wouldn’t learn that we could come back, that it always existed, that an inextinguishable flame of Love burns pure and true at the center of our essence, ready and willing to hold and fuel us. The Source of our Love, our core well, is our Divine and holy truth.
When we reach out in striving for something that is not aligned in our Highest, that is external of ourselves, that is not our truth, we are like cut flowers. Finding water, sunlight and maybe even some appreciation can help us survive, but we will easily wilt, and we will be working hard to continue to live on fumes of life force, of Love. A flower that is never cut from its stem, root system, who knows its home, can grow with relative ease and grace in the unfolding of its Divine path, it can thrive.
Are you thriving?
What are you expecting from Love? Where do you feel you’re missing love in your life? Are you seeking or blaming someone or something outside of yourself for the lack of Love you’re feeling? Are you resisting Love?
Did you know you are made of Love?
You determine your experience of Love, given and received, and the level in your love tank at all times. You can choose to be fulfilled by Divine Love, it is within your free will. Love is the most honoring and enduring force there is, it doesn’t have preferences or rules. It is always free, always abundant, always willing to show up anytime for anyone. Love knows when you need it, and flows perfectly. It wants you even when you feel ashamed. Love is there when you are doing the shaming and when you’re in your shadow. Love is there when you try, when you fail, and it’s there when little you can’t love. Love utterly tests us with its unconditional acceptance and truth. It is THE force to be reckoned with. Don’t cut yourself off from this well. Choose Love.
Be a vessel of Love.
Feeling Divine Love can be overwhelmingly intimate, it can be challenging to allow, and to be with, especially if we aren’t feeling worthy. Resistance to Love builds if we’re stuck in the idea that we are separate from it or that we are not made of it. Love asks for nothing other than for us to receive it fully and allow it to flow out and bless the world. Try being as open as you possibly can to Love today, and watch it edge out the hardening. Watch it soften, hold and center you. Let it brighten your clarity. Love will remind you of who you are, and it will guide you to be and experience everything your Soul was designed for this lifetime.
Try this each morning, and anytime throughout your day that you are feeling resistant to Love or seeking it from outside of yourself: Close your eyes, put your hand over your heart. Let warmth radiate from inward that is palpable to your hand. Feel yourself immersed in golden light. Repeat: “I am radiant Love. Love is all there is. Divine Love flows through me now.” With conscious repetition, you’re strengthening your connection to Divine Love.
