I was taught in some point in my life that being too loving or affectionate, was a sign of weakness, and that it was not necessary for happiness or survival. It takes a lot of courage to love fully and completely; to say I love you to someone who is uncomfortable with the words, and who would probably not say it back.
For some reason, these three little words I love you makes people feel very uncomfortable. I find it so very sad that for some of us, it's easier to say, I hate you, then I love you.
In my thirties, I held back my love for the fear of being too needy, and then I allowed myself to love a little. I soon realized that loving a little, was also feeling a little. I was not being true to myself. I was not fully living my life. I felt small. As soon as I made the decision to love fully and completely something amazing happened. I became more and more of who I really am. I found my true purpose, the meaning of my life. I opened my heart to God and heard whispers. I was ready to be me; the real me. I opened the doors to my own yoga studio, a place where I can share my heart and thoughts. I published my first book which helped me to embrace my story. My book enables me to connect with the world and becoming a voice of hope for many who had similar challenges. I am now moving forward with my dream, as I really want to participate in making a difference. I am enrolling into a two-year spiritual psychotherapy program to continue with my purpose, which is to help others to recognize their own power, potential and inner peace.
Loving fearlessly, living your life fully is the most courageous thing we can do, because we are allowing ourselves to be vulnerable and real. Don't let the fear of exposing your insecurity, or the fear of being hurt, or the fear of rejection to hold you back. Love with your whole heart, love what you do, love yourself, love your neighbour, and see the change you are creating not only in your own life, but all around you. Begin to love now. When you choose to express, share, give, and receive LOVE, life will support you in every possible way, and you will no longer feel separated. This reality begins within us and then spread out into the world. It will transform how you feel inside, how you see life, how you relate to others and how you live your life. But first you have to make the conscious decision to live in your heart.
Be as loving as possible,
Love & Light
