Have you ever reflected upon how you love another? I don’t mean in the conventional sense of the things you do to express love. What I am referring to is how you approach love at a deep level.
We often approach love as a formula. If we do x then we can expect y as a response. In other ways, we somehow believe that love comes down to how we feel about another. If the feeling is positive, we are willing to put more effort forth. On the other hand if the feeling is negative, we withhold love and affection. Can you recognize this pattern in your own life?
Yet love is deeper, magical, and more mystical than human emotion or some formula. Love calls us to recognize, honor, and reverence the divine in another. We are called to love someone for who they are and not how they are or what they do. The magic unfolds when we offer genuine love without strings attached. When I offer love to someone for who they are, it calls forth the very best of them. They unfold before my eyes like a flower beginning to open. Love is the magic key that unlocks the greatest human potential in another. It gives them permission to be who they are and in return, love is multiplied.
It’s when we love in this way that we awaken the divine within and unleash it’s true power to transform not only the life of the other, but the greatest potential of the connection between two human hearts. Too often we step into a relationship hoping to change the things we don’t like in hopes we get more of what we do like. No one though is perfect and if you focus only on what you like and discard the rest, you often end up discarding the very elements that make that person unique and special. Just because it doesn’t appeal to you doesn’t give you permission to try and stamp it out in them.
I encourage you to examine the relationships in your life. Are you playing the math as if a formula will do the trick or are you honoring others for who they are in their entirety. If you are being selective, then it’s not love that you are living in, it’s simply affection. It’s only when you can embrace the whole person that authentic love springs forth.
One last thought. If there are things in another person that are counter to your values or authentic self, then perhaps this isn’t a relationship that calls for the depth of love that characterizes strong connection. You can share love, light, and respect for others while recognizing they don’t align with you. It doesn’t make that relationship wrong or bad, but it’s not one that feeds and supports you – move on. Not every relationship is called to be the kind of deep connection you may find in a soulmate or romance. Don’t force something that isn’t meant to be.
I believe in the transformative power of human connection to elevate joy, restore balance, and support inner healing as you seek your highest purpose. My purpose in life is to be a guide, to share the wisdom of the Universe I’ve been gifted with, and to see others succeed. Nothing brings me greater joy than to see others step into their purpose in a vibrant and highly energetic way.
