Would you like to create more healthy loving relationships with everyone around you? Do you want to experience a greater sense of love, and feel more secure and confident about yourself? Would you like to bring out the best in others? Do you want to feel more energized every day?
Your own happiness is your greatest tool for creating a daily life of joy, ease, and flow for yourself and others. It all begins with you, because you create everything based on how you feel. When you are authentically happy, you radiate a profound energy of light and love that has an uplifting effect on everyone you meet. Focus on feeling more light-hearted, having more compassion (not to be confused with any kind of pity), and being kind towards yourself and others. As you do this, your relationships with everyone you come into contact with will always change for the better.
So, how can you come from a space of continuous love, all the time? How can you increase your joy and respond with love and laughter in all of your experiences? How can you let your passion for life shine through you, in both personal and professional situations?
1. First, you must ask yourself this question right now: Can I love myself more? If the answer is yes, it’s time for you to heap a large dose of self-love onto yourself.
Use this simple technique. Just put your hand on your heart right now, close your eyes, and imagine breathing in love. Feel love for yourself as you inhale. Do this 3 or 4 more times. Now, repeat in your mind or out loud:
"I know that I am worthy of my own self love, I am deserving of my own self-love. I am a brilliant, unique and magnificent being all rolled into one amazing and magnificent package. I love myself."
Do it several times until you fill your entire body with the sensation of love and calm. On each exhale, feel love floating out all around you. FEEL how good you feel, perhaps even warm and tingly as your hand covers your heart.
Now, you will more easily be able to choose the path of love for all things and everyone. You will unleash your most powerful gift to everyone around you... your own light of love that shines from within you. Remember, you can never be too warm-hearted and genuinely loving with others. They will be the beneficiaries of your love, and so will you!
2. Second, be aware of situations that feel less than joyful to you, so that you can move forward toward love. Feel more and think less. Learn to focus on how you feel and on finding the loop of love extending from you to others.
Know that everyone has a spark of genius in them. Enjoy the differences in others. Allow them to flourish in their uniqueness, just as you wish to elevate your own. You can help others awaken and inspire them to hold a more positive outlook too. How?
3. Third, see the best in others. Only when you allow everyone and everything to be as they are, knowing that they are perfectly on their own path, can you begin to feel the joy of that relationship. See the beautiful light and goodness within everyone you meet. For the special people in your life, be sure you write and consistently focus on a story about the brilliance of who they are. Keep your conversations filled with positivity as you interact. Do not participate in anything less. Use only words that are in harmony with the outcomes you desire. Encourage others and share with them what you know to be their gifts and talents. Point them in the right direction by supporting them with your words. Only then can you appreciate that relationship for what it truly has to offer. When you step back and change your focus, when you send love to any situation that you wish to be different, then your relationship can blossom into something authentic and unique.
Practice loving yourself more and you will see the results you want with others around you. Yes! I will say this again and again and again. ☺ True self-love and self-care have the most profound effect on yourself and others. As you practice self-care and love yourself intensely, you will tap into the greatest power of all that you hold within, the power of love. It is your greatest gift and treasure. When you lead with love, and genuinely share your heart with the world around you, you have an amazing affect. Whatever you tell yourself, inside your head, day in and day out, becomes the reality of your world around you. When you think only loving thoughts of others, you expand that love even further. So, be sure your thoughts, words and actions are aligned to get what you want. As you feel genuine love for others, you will receive even more in return.
Have an absolutely magical day full of love, gratitude and fun!
