Be More Love. Feel More Loved. Open Your Heart to Receive More Love.

 In Self Love, Transforming Your Relationships

Watch this video to invite more love into your life – MORE LOVE for yourself, starting with the love from yourself. Open your heart to receive more love.

Happy Month of Love! I am OVER THE MOON to be writing you today to kick off one of my favorite months of the year – February, the month of LOVE. For me February is a month that naturally brings people’s attention to love, which is a beautiful thing.

However in our mainstream culture, most of that focus is on receiving romantic love from another. And so, if you are single, you feel lonely and like you are missing out on something. If you are in relationship, often we put unrealistic expectations on our mates to shower us with love on one day, and of course get let down. For a month that is supposed to be about love, we shouldn’t be experiencing such suffering or disappointment or pressure.

Add on to that the current definition of self-love is “conceit, vanity and narcissism” and that even though our children and we have more self-esteem than ever, there is still a stigma to giving love to yourself. Okay to give to others, but to yourself, even for those that practice it every day, we can still feel guilty, like we are bragging or selfish.

I believe that we each have the power to change the collective consciousness by changing our own choices and perspectives, and today I am inviting you to join me in thinking of February as a month that we can ACTIVATE and AMPLIFY LOVE for ourselves and the world, and as a result stay connected to love all year long.

So that in those moments where fear, shame, blame, guilt, pressure, stress and criticism show up, you can find your way back to love. And so that by years end you have access to more love, you are wealthier in love – sound good?

Let’s make this a year where you FEEL MORE LOVED, okay?
And as a result help more people all over the world FEEL MORE LOVED to? Love wealth for everyone!

There is a special super powered love meditation I’ll take you through at the end of the video so you can see and feel how it’s easy for you and hard for you to GIVE and RECEIVE love. This will help you open up to be and feel more loved. So watch the video and then share… how it is easy for you to receive love and how it is hard.

SHARE ON THE SELF LOVE BLOG… “My heart easily opens to receive love with/when… and My heart has a hard time receiving love when…” -I’ll witness and send your heart a prayer to open to more love!

I’ll go first… My heart easily opens to receive love from my four legged friends, my heart is completely open to animals. My heart has a hard time receiving love when I am not being compassionate with myself… because when I am not compassionate with me, I become critical of other people as a way to keep them and love away.

 

Now your turn….POST ON THE BLOG open up your heart to love by sharing where your heart opens easily and where is shuts down.

    The amazing thing I felt going through this exercise was a immediate feeling of relaxation when I turned the mirror around. I noticed my shoulders suddenly relaxed and my breathing slowed down. Unfortunately then I started doing what I tend to do-analyse what just happened-and it went away. So, I guess I need to work on how not to immediately negate this type of love.

      Right – anger Julia also kills the love – darn that anger. I am seeing your heart starting in meditation in the morning and keeping that feeling all day long so anger is no longer needed except when its in love. xo

    Hi, During the meditation, I saw my granddaughter holding her fluffy kitty and I felt the warmth and how easy it is to love her. It’s hard to love critical people, so this year I am working on that

      Mary – and most of all hard to love ourselves when we are critical of ME. Be less critical and more accepting of you and you’ll find less critical peeps in ur life. love to you.

    Hard to receive love. Just ask Why? Why me?
    Letting go is ha rd to let go and receive love.
    Just in a state of self loathing most of thetime.
    \overweight , ugly , old . how can you love that.
    Hard to give love sometimes . Showing my vulnerable side.

    So so easy to shower love on my beloved children, so easy to revive the love they give me.
    Wildly uncomfortable to have the unconditional love I give my children given to me!
    Thanks for the mirror idea! So surprisingly useful and reflective.

      Chaya – here is to YOU receiving that unadulterated, pure love that a child gives so freely, but directed at YOU. xox

    Thank you for this opportunity to do a little soul-searching.

    My heart easily opens to receive love when I feel safe and comforted and my heart has a hard time receiving love when I feel self-pity.

    What’s hard for me in récriving love is that I feel indebted, like I *have to* repay it.
    À second thing that is hard is that I sometimes feel undeserving, like unworthy, like I actually have to *do* something to receive love.
    And the last is probably the trickiest bit : I am afraid of becoming lax, permissive and indulgent to myself, like doing stuff I consider wrong.
    This bit I have to clean away, because… In fact it doesn’t work like that. It’s exactly the other way around !
    First, you do not become permissive, cause now you *feel* very clearly when you are doing something that doesn’t honor you. But not in a guilty, judgmental way (and that’s the good news !). You feel it clearly in a “ow, it hurts, I don’t wanna do this, it’s bad for me, it’s not going any good”. And so… Little by little, you stop acting from a place of guilt, and start acting from a place of CARE. Which feels a wooooooorld different (and better).
    BUT it’s hard to remember that non, you are not turning into a permissive person. So I have to do this little “gymnastic” every time I tend to be afraid of becoming permissive… And it’s worth it !

    What’s easy for me in receiving love -> It was really easy to feel the love reflected back from the person I was reflecting it towards because we share such an unconditionally loving friendship!

    What’s hard for me in receiving love -> What’s hard is imagining the possibility that most of my relationships could be this way. I still feel like *real love* is rare, which makes me guarded and scared to express love or welcome it in.
