This is an article I wrote about love. Love is the antithesis of love so I thought I would share it with you …… Enjoy!

Love

Perhaps love is the process of being lead gently back into ourselves.

Love is often easier to describe than define.  When I describe love I use words like gentle, kind, patient, soothing, nurturing, expansive, freeing, generous, big, safe, cuddly, all encompassing and – I could go on and on.

Before I released some of the emotional garbage attached to the word, I thought love was frightening, often painful, and something to be avoided.  I am so glad that is no longer true for me.  You can define love for yourself; if your definition causes you pain, change your definition.


Energetically, love is expansive and unconditional.  Love allows us to see the infinite number of possibilities available to us at any given moment.  One of the most important decisions you can make in life is whether you choose to believe in a safe universe or a hostile one.

When I believed in a hostile universe I was often unhappy, frequently depressed and fearful most of the time.  When I decided to believe in a universe that was very loving and safe my life changed completely.  I was able to experience a sense of freedom and joy I never thought possible.

Yes, my body can be harmed and die, but the essence of who and what I am cannot.  I now know I am a spirit within a body, but I am not my body.  I am limitless, eternal, immortal and infinite; I am free and love becomes a way of living.

As with all of our emotions, love is self-generated.  It is not dependent on another person’s actions or on external events.  When we act and think in love, rather than fear, our lives can become a glorious, fun filled experience.

Exercise:

How would you like “love” to be defined in your life?  Our experiences in life do conform to our definitions – if you want to change an experience, change your definitions.

Think of the feeling of love.  You might want to start by thinking of something or someone you feel loving toward: a puppy, a kitten, a child, a sunset or your love interest.  How does it feel in your body?  Is your chest relaxed or tight?  How
does your stomach feel? 

Really notice how your body feels.  Start at your head and scan every part of your body. What are you physically feeling in your body? 

Now practice creating that feeling of love in your body.  Practice until you can do it easily. 

Once you can do that think of someone you are upset with or a situation you find upsetting; then generate the feeling of love.  Do your thoughts about the person or event change?
