Unconditional love says there is a special place of healing and connection–
you may always meet me there, regardless of external.
There is a story I would like to release. Something “dumb” that I used to believe in until this past Tuesday (wow, yesterday–seems a lifetime ago!). To understand the power of release, I do not need to explain to you the details of the day’s events. I shall, however, share with you the ‘story’ in case you buy into it, too, and would like to release it with me.
This is what happens within a community of love and friendship: we share through vulnerability so that we may encourage each other to open our hearts beyond ‘external’ to create beauty and joy and magnificent everything! (Thank you for your participation within this community!).
The story: the people closest to me are the ones who hurt me most. Bull. Drop it. Smash it. I just did and what I found is freedom and expansion.
(And gratitude. Abundant gratitude!)
There was a moment in that particular day in which I felt my heart metaphorically splinter. A depth of energetic pain I had not yet felt in life. In attempting to understand this foreign pain, my mind immediately said “oh, the people who are closest to us hurt us the most, so of course, this “makes sense”. This being someone I have let in closest, my mind said heart splintering is perfectly appropriate then. And, I almost accepted it as so.
Almost. Dis-empowering thought.
But, I don’t do dis-empowering, and quite frankly this person taught me not to accept less than excellent. Metaphorically splintered surely is not “excellent”. (And, neither do you. Do dis-empowering or less than excellent. Thank you for joining me in magnifying empowerment and excellence!).
I create this moment; I choose what I allow to be in this moment. When I create, I bring external to a centered place of peace and create from there (rather than allow mind to react to external). So, I opened through energetic pain and I brought this external to my heart space; what my heart knows is that love does not hurt. Love: enriches, enlivens, grows, expands, frees, illuminates. The people closest to me (to you) whom love us more than anything in the world…those people…use love to build up, inspire, encourage, heal.
When we create from heart space, we release struggle and embrace flow. We tap into the power offered to us, when we open our hearts to it. Together, then, may we release the mainstream story and embrace a beautiful affirmation:
Those who are closest to us share a love that is based in trust, truth, transparency, and vulnerability. This love is life enriching, spirit enlivening, encourages us to reach beyond what we know to soar far above the moon, and to enjoy each and every moment of the way.
And so it shall be, for what we focus on grows and guides our actions.
I invite you to join me in allowing this affirmation to become your reality; when it is reality, may you share gratitude and allow that gratitude to magnify love (and dreams and spirit and life!).
Oh, and by the way, unconditional love does not say, you hurt me, bug off. Unconditional love turns it inward and says how did I allow this to be present in my life? How may I open my heart through this. Then, offers the above invitation: there is a special place of healing and connection–you may always meet me there, regardless of external.
Much peace and abundant love,
Reminder: Experiment. Explore. Experience.
