Often many people in these days feel cut off, isolated from themselves and fellow beings. Everyone appears busy achieving, doing, and experiencing. There is not too much simply “being” around. I see a great many people who say that they cannot feel, others say they do not feel or know what love is. Does this sound like you or are you one of the few who loves, is loved and is aware that you are loved?
So we are back once again to ourselves and getting in touch again with love. Often people are deluded and labor under the misconception that love is to be found outside of themselves. Many wonder if it exists, can it last, do they deserve love, are they good enough, and hope that if they keep working, striving, praying, and searching long enough, that it will come. The truth is that you are love, you are all that is. You may need to clear and put aside all doubts, fears and pains that make you not believe that this is so. There are those who can help and guide you, there is much that you can do yourself. Isn’t it time now to say no to pain, and yes to love?
We need to love ourselves completely and without condition. These are easy words to say and to know, but it takes a commitment on an every day basis before this becomes a definite reality and way of experiencing life and ourselves.
Our culture does not make room or time for self-love. We are taught to put others first and to be selfless. We need to love ourselves completely and without condition. These are easy words to say and to know, but it takes a commitment on an every day basis before this becomes a definite reality and way of experiencing life and ourselves. Our culture does not make room or time for self-love. We are taught to put others first and to be selfless. I regularly meet people who are in great pain, often “healers”. These people want to help others, feeling perhaps that if they do enough for another, it will come back in goodness for them. What these people need is to help, heal, and love themselves first. Digest these words and if they ring true for you, then it is time to move on. When you love and are not loved back, it is very painful, it makes you loose confidence in yourself and brings up all the other times and instances that this has happened before in your life. It brings with it deep inside of you a lot of fear, fear of rejection, fear of not being good enough. Yet this is not so, it is an illusion because we are perfect and we are love.
Have you been crippled with fear about asking for what you want and need from the ones that you love? Afraid to ask for what you need because you are so busy protecting them and putting you aside? The caretaker syndrome! Do you feel that you have a hole in your stomach or a weight on your chest? Do you over eat just to feel safe? One or two sessions of rebirthing could well be the answer for you. The Rebirthing therapy involves connected breathing from the stomach, the solar plexus and seat of our emotions. It is powerful and works to clear past built up pain, trauma, fear and angers. You may cry, or react with anger during the session, or you may be quiet, but you will release and be reborn.
I often notice that people who stay on their own, who don’t want to mix with other human beings, who have had enough of pain and rejection, have come to the conclusion that to shut themselves away from others is the only way for them to survive. The many people, who put their pets in the place of other human beings as they receive unconditional love in return from these animals, feel this is the one way they can love and be loved without pain. It’s one way of doing things, but do you realize that we are all one, and all those that you shut out are different living expressions of yourself? So you limit and close off yourself. As a multidimensional being this cannot be the way to move forward. All people need to live and love again. We all want to be happy, to be fulfilled. We want to love and be loved. We can have all of this, but we are going to have to use the courage that we all have inside of us and face all and everything that stands in our way. It is an absolute that we have endless strength and inner knowledge.
We are now in the season of spring, the glorious sun of summer is just around the corner. Isn’t it time you shone and glowed as the happy fulfilled and vibrant being of pure light and love that you really are? Isn’t it time to move on? Time for change? I would like to close this short piece by welcoming us all back to love and with the wish that this summer we will all shine with the sun more brightly than ever before.
