The Love Connection
Valentine’s Day falls on a Saturday this year so the excuse that your business schedule is grueling isn’t going to fly.
Let’s do a quick exploration of your current thoughts and feelings regarding this subjective holiday that will require an expenditure of your energy to bring your softer nature into the foreground.
Is the thought of exercising your heart muscle all too intimidating? Is it hard to muster up the exuberance and confidence to showcase your deepest, intimate feelings so that your husband, wife, or significant other feels loved and cherished on this one official love day of the year? Or are you, at the present time, a party of one in a Noah’s Ark world?
No matter which description fits you, in honor of Valentine’s Day, we are going to take a quick trip into the past to excavate your personal storehouse of love energy.
Your love memories may be buried and therefore unusable as a source of heart-filling, energizing awareness of your capacity to be in love and loved by your life.
Imagine that you can easily rewind your mind into the past. Here is your task. Begin to invite back those memories of pivotal points, magical moments, take your breath away encounters and sacred interventions that transformed the mundane into memorable. The good stuff of life.
You’ll only need to lightly trace over these events because the real intent of sending you back in time is to reconnect you with those specific experiences that you know were destiny manifested.
In everyone’s life there are those moments, those chance meetings, those events that have our name on it. It is those moments that change the quality and experience of our lives forever.
I want to pause here, to give you time to recall three major change points that opened and expanded your sense of yourself as loveable, capable and in step with your life path.
Not one. Three. There is no room for stinginess here.
Now bring your mind into the present. Who has been or is presently a part of your life that you can genuinely say: “I wouldn’t have missed the experience of you for the world.” What projects, opportunities or tasks have you been or are you presently involved in that you can honestly say: “I wouldn’t have missed the experience of doing this for the world.”
If you can discover just one person, one task, or one experience that you accept wholeheartedly, you can then recalibrate and expand your capacity to deeply connect yourself to the basic rightness of your present life.
Simply admitting and embracing even one full, clear, yes-moment in our lives can naturally and fully open us to an ownership of the following basic truth. The truth is that every single event and experience we have had the fortune or misfortune to have, had to happen exactly when, where and how it did so that we would be in the right place to meet that special person, land that ‘I was made for this’ job, live in our personal paradise, birth the baby, idea, business, and relationships that infuse our lives with love.
When we find ourselves impatient with life, numbed by the mundane, or longing for the magic of synergistic life events, take a deep breath, let it go and remember this: Whatever you are seeking is also seeking you. Happy Valentine’s Day.
