“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance.” John Lennon
Living in love creates a constant flow of positive energy which dissolves fear, insecurity and negativity. We are love-a whole and complete energy without limits or boundaries. Living as the embodiment of love, we obliterate all negativity and sustain all that is well and good. It lifts us beyond the drone of the human condition and reminds us that we are this divine energy source capable of creating a fulfilling and purposeful life.
How do we live in the flow of love? By practicing these principles everyday as consistently as possible.
Begin with the inner knowing that you are love so everything you positively intend is open and possible. Let every thought resonate with an intention of love to support yourself and others without harm or hurt. Catch or change any negative thought as soon as you become aware and replace it with a loving one even if you are still angry, upset or irritated. Then, repeat this mantra until the feelings dissipate or subside.
Wake up everyday in gratitude which is an aspect of love. Acknowledge the blessings of who you are and what you have even if you are having difficulty feeling this way. Begin each day with an image of the best your life has ever been and create from there no matter what has happened in your past.
Include instead of exclude. You’ll be surprised how much more love will come into our life. Share, open and include others to play. Let go of any attachment to having it a certain way, coveting a particular time or experience or holding on to a person or thing.
Listen to the inner voice of spirit and make discerning choices in alignment with your true being. If someone or something doesn’t resonate or feel right to you at this time, then it isn’t in the flow of love. Shift it, dissolve it or move out of the situation as soon as possible.
Find the awe and wonder in the simplest experiences-a rainbow, a child’s smile, a favorite piece of music or a loved one’s warm embrace. Do whatever makes your heart sing and thread these delights throughout your day. Take the necessary break to close your eyes and see a favorite image of a sunset or person.
Let others be. Focus your energies on yourself and your own life. Stop micro-managing others and make the choices to change your life and create it as an expression of love-every thought, feeling and action. Be the flow of love in your life so that others will shift by example.
