When I slide into these words, I’m not expecting or needing anything from the world around me, I find myself experiencing it all. Being it all. I feel the firmness and the fluidity of this freedom. I am this freedom. You are this freedom. What would happen if we all looked at love this way?
I’m for sure not an expert at love. And I’ll be the first to admit that this life giving essence has been one of my most complex learning curves, but darn if I don’t keep on trying. Along my healing journey I have done some amazing work with my teacher Tom and various other heart centered healers, and something we always identity in our work is the old belief (conclusion) and because of this conclusion, behaviors that accompany this way of being. These two identifications are pivotal to the work of Heart Centered Hypnotherapy. What am I believing and because of this belief, how am I then behaving in my life? These are always two great questions to ask in the face of love.
At various points in life I feel like I’m enrolled in the remedial courses on love. Not in a poor me way, but as in the, ‘Oh, isn’t this reaction interesting,’ or ‘Oh, look at my scared self trying to run the show again,' or "Oh look at my 5 year old unhealed self attempting to be in this adult relationship.' At this point in my journey there is much more love present than there used to be, as well as compassion for the parts of self that are still fragmented.
Expectations drop and I reconnect to my breath. I realize my suffering comes from wanting myself and others to give or receive their love in a particular way. Can you relate? As we move towards the end of 2017 and into the arms of 2018, I think it so important to sit with this idea of love. How will you be able to see the Beloved all around you in 2018? Maybe it's simply our jobs to notice where we could practice 'being' more instead of needing to receive or give in a particular manner? “Being in love means seeing the Beloved all around me.”
Cheers to the journey!
