EASY LOVE

Sometimes realizing you are in love feels like you are out of control, it can feel like you are falling down the rabbit hole. However, it doesn’t have to be this way if you TRUST YOURSELF. You get to set the pace, you get to take small steps so it’s a natural, gentle progression for you. Love should never be forced, it should be comfortable and easy. What is there to rush too anyway? If you stay centered and follow your heart it will always guide you to exactly where you want to be.

There does come a time where LOVE will ask you to grow and stretch yourself. This will inevitably happen. However, no matter how scary it may feel initially, it is important to stay present and open during this time. It is your soul calling you to reach higher, desire more for yourself and your life and encouraging you to TAKE RISKS. Its about expanding your comfort zone. If you lift weights when you go to the gym, after a short while it’s comfortable to stay at the same weight time after time however if you just raise the weight even 5 pounds you will be pushing through your comfort zone. The benefit of this is HUGE. It not only gives you the confidence to go even further the next time, you also feel really good because you have accomplished something that will greatly benefit you and will bring you closer to what you want.

Try this affirmation and really feel the word “ease” and exhale as you say it – “The relationship I want is one of ease.”

My picture this week came to me while I was shopping at the mall… Its delicious and one of the most magical things in life!!

FOCUSING ON LOVE

Logo reduced for Website .com

It’s important to focus on your desires about love. Otherwise we can find ourselves at old default thinking. What is it you want? Choosing words that are general can really help when you don’t know what the specifics look like. Thoughts like: I want a relationship that is easy, comfortable, soft, gentle and sure, real, honest and true, passionate, vital and alive, full, certain and secure, confident, open, expansive and delicious. (These general words come directly from the wisdom of Abraham through Esther Hicks. You can hear more of their genius on YouTube.)

Distractions and drama can show up unexpectedly in our daily lives if we are not consciously focusing on what it is we want. Sometimes it takes effort to consciously choose our thoughts and pay attention to what we are focusing on, rather than allow negativity to take over us. If we want to see improvement in our lives and in our relationships, positive focus is a necessary step to take. I know that has led a lot of the top athletes and sportspeople to success. Over time they have developed laser point focus. I know we are all capable of this powerful focus when it comes to CREATING GREAT LOVE in our own lives.

Let’s remind ourselves this week to only focus on what we truly want.

My picture this week is a sweet gift given to me by one of my dearest friends…a great reminder to love.

LOVE RULES

I often read the daily news online at Yahoo and it is guaranteed there is sure to be an article somewhere on there about love and relationships. Often times it’s a ‘how to’ piece. Like how to have a successful marriage or what to do on a date. This week though was different. I came across a piece about a woman who is successful, has a good career, owns her own home however she was unmarried. She went on to explain that the people around her constantly question what is wrong with her and why isn’t she married with children. It was so refreshing to hear her say that she felt like people do not question marriage or relationships or having children that they just expect that is what everyone should do. Often times it’s out of tradition not necessarily because we actually want it.

I agree wholeheartedly that we must really look at our own individual situations and lives and ask ourselves questions like: Do I want to be married? Do I want to have children? Do I want to have a committed relationship? When it comes to creating great love THERE ARE NO RULES! That is the gift we have been given as humans – we get to choose. We get to decide what GREAT LOVE looks like to us. It does not have to conform to anyone else’s view or opinion. It is such an individual choice. Thank goodness we no longer live in the times of Jane Austen when women had to marry well to secure their future. Instead now we get to create our own future exactly as we want it to be. What a relief!!!

This week’s picture was right beside me on the freeway in Los Angeles. I find the words such a great reminder and I just adore that the car is red!!!

SACRED LOVE

For a long time I knew that I desired a relationship based on SACRED LOVE. What does the word sacred mean? “Sacred is something that is held in high regard. Something beautiful and untarnished. A thing that is left undisturbed so as to be an Inspiration to others. Something loved and revered”. That describes it PERFECTLY! The part of this definition that resonates so deeply with me is SO AS TO BE AN INSPIRATION TO OTHERS. That is so important to inspire other people to show them that we can have beautiful love relationships. That they are real. That they do exist and here is an example for you to see. It’s about what you demonstrate and show to yourself, your partner and the world.

GREAT LOVE is very pure it cuts right through all the illusions of fear, lack, scarcity to the truth at the center of our being.

One of my all time favorite quotes about love comes from the movie “Moulin Rouge” by the brilliant Baz Luhrmann. “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return”. I am beginning to understand that there are a lot of people in this world who don’t realize they cut themselves off to some of the most magical and wonderful experiences of love. They think they will be safe and protected behind the wall they have created around their heart. However, once their heart and soul has had a taste of GREAT LOVE there is no going back. Once you know even a little, how wonderful true love can be, you can never deny yourself that pleasure ever again. The next step is to be courageous and let it happen.

This week’s picture comes directly from the beauty and sacredness of Mother Nature…truly amazing!!!

POWER OF LOVE

We have all heard the saying “Love is Greater than Fear”. We can hear these words over and over again however the key is to truly believe in them. Love truly is the strongest force on the planet. Love creates the miracle of human life.

When GREAT LOVE exists between two people it really does have the power to move mountains. Simply put – being loved makes you more powerful. When you know you are loved it gives you the courage and strength that you never realized you had. Knowing there is another person who supports you 100% means everything.

Sometimes relationships can get complicated and even a bit messy, however through it all the power of GREAT LOVE is the one and only constant that is always present. When you have that as your knowingness, your foundation and your truth, any illusion of obstacles can be overcome.

You don’t need to know how, you just have to be willing. That’s all it takes is a willingness to open to the power of love and let it guide you because it will if you let it.

My picture this week came to me right outside my front door. It is the most simple and easy expression of LOVE that was there to greet me…the beauty of a couple taking a walk with their dog with his arm gently draped over his sweetheart…that’s true bliss in my book!

FEELS LIKE LOVE

Great Love feels like sweet gentle kisses on the nape of your neck. Great Love feels like intertwining your bodies together from your toes to your legs, arms and hands. Great Love feels like lying on the sofa holding hands while watching TV together. Great Love feels like you are home when you are with your sweetheart. Great Love feels like never giving up. Great Love feels like long hugs where your heartbeats combine. Great Love feels like you just want to be close. Great Love feels like wherever they are you just want to be there. Great Love feels like contributing to each other’s lives making them better in some way. Great Love feels like staring lovingly into each other’s eyes from opposite sides of a room filled with people. Great Love feels like your sweetheart cooking a meal for you just the way you like it. Great Love feels like having a new adventure together. Great Love feels like having an intimate conversation with each other regarding a topic you are passionate about.

When you find your Great Love you just know. It is a feeling deep inside. No matter if there are obstacles to overcome, you are certain they will be solved. No matter how or why. No matter the time, space or distance. No matter what. Where does this knowingness come from? It comes from your soul. From the deepest part of your intuition. From the light that is within you.

My picture this week came to me as I was walking out my front door. Just a day before there was nothing and then today – full bloom – a bright shining sunfilled light. I am certain that Great Love went into the creation of this….
