The Gift of Loving

When I was younger, I kept waiting for someone to love me the way I wanted to be loved. Needless to say, I was often pretty miserable and unhappy.

Most of my life’s journey has been about finding love; the right partner to love me, to have my children love me, to feel loved by my parents. Actually, I wanted everyone to love me. I was always grateful for my sister who has always loved me, even though I was a bratty kid at times.

After many years of psychotherapy, healing work and shamanic work, I’ve come to a very different place about love.

Love is the core of who we really are in the very center of our Being. It is our nature, our essence. Our journey in life for many is about being willing to love in spite of the pain, the wounds, the heartbreak, the violations, the betrayals we’ve experienced. Yes, I’ve experienced all of those, just like many of you.

It is a choice to let down our walls and our barriers of so-called protections that make us feel more alone and isolated. There really are safe ways and places to go on that journey to Love with teachers and facilitators who can hold that heart space for us.valentine-tree10-01-111413-2799.eps

Healing and transforming those wounds so we can experience that feeling of love is miraculous to me. My journey has shown me that if we want love, we choose to love no matter what happens. That doesn’t mean allowing people to treat us badly. It means we choose to be around more positive, caring, nurturing, reciprocating people who want to be with us.

It means we focus on love, that sweetness, tenderness, the feeling of a baby in our arms smelling of baby powder, or nuzzling a puppy, or the beauty of majestic trees as they touch the sky at sunset. I sometimes feel like I’m looking at a God painting when I experience the beauty in nature. Waterfalls tumbling down rocks, the coolness of the water during a hike and enjoying the laughter of children playing, my grandson playing – this is God and love to me.

When we allow ourselves to open so deeply to Spirit and the Celestial realm, we hear the angels playing music inside us, the rhythms and sound of tenderness touching our soul to continue that awakening; that joyous opening in our Being, for which I am so deeply grateful

I hear in my head, “She walks in beauty and Grace.” And I feel compassion and grace inside me. I’m sitting here writing this after a very frustrating day of numerous things going wrong. And yet, I decided to do a healing group and start with one about love, since it’s almost Valentine’s Day. This is what emerged.

So I’m sitting here with tears in my eyes feeling how grateful I am for where I’m at now; the people in my life, my sister and her family, my daughters, my grandson, my son-in-law, my shaman, my coach, my friends, my assistant and intern, my virtual assistant team, and so many more who affect me.

Thank you for teaching me about the gift of loving no matter what occurs externally. The trials and tribulations of life are just practice to experience the gift of loving unconditionally no matter the circumstances.

Will you go on that journey of love with me? It’s really delightful and JOYOUS!
