Love, seems like such a simple word, yet this word that we hear so often, really contains so much power. In fact the love or the lack thereof in your life, is effecting you drastically whether you realize it or not.
More and more science is proving that actions of the heart can effect our health and well being. A patient in a coma, is known to revive and pull out of their situation, when there are family members or loved ones around, reassuring them that they are there. People who refuse to forgive, who are angry and carry bitterness are known to carry ailments in their body and until they release it, the ailment remains. We’re very much aware that stress is detrimental to our body, so we look for alternatives to help relieve us from the pressure and prevent the harmful effects of it.
All this goes to say, “Hey what’s going on inside is resulting on what you’re experiencing on the outside!” But the journey of love began for you a long time. You see, how we were raised as children and how love was taught to us, implements a pattern that we live life out of. Paying attention to how you were loved then, is huge to the outcome as to how you receive love now.
Did you receive love based on conditions? It’s no wonder why you may spend the rest of your life looking for affirmation, based on the guidelines of performance. Was love not a safe place? Perhaps the walls that you constantly throw up now, come from broken places of the past?
While I’m not here to analyze your upbringing, I do want to bring an awareness to you, to get you asking okay “Is receiving love now a bit difficult for me?” IF so, look back at your history. Whether or not you received love, how you allow love in in your present, doesn’t have to remain dormant or non-existent because of your past. You can start opening yourself up to love today.
Knowing You Are Loved is one of the most powerful gifts you will ever be given. In America, we’re a very Performance Oriented society. What we accomplish or don’t accomplish, weighs incredibly on our worth. How we look contributes many times, as to whether or not we feel worthy to receive love. But the truth is, who we are, the person, that is where we derive our true worth, its that person who is worthy to be loved.
