What Would LOVE Do?

I invite you to stop frequently throughout the day today and question: What would Love do? Question your intentions, listen for the whispers of your Heart and Soul. Pause long enough to hear the silence as it speaks to you.

Angry at someone?  Ask yourself, what would Love do? How would you act if you were acting purely out of Love and not fear or ego? Would you still be angry?  Use this technique to uncover your real feelings and core issues that lie deep beneath the surface anger.

Frustrated with your life or a current situation?  Ask yourself, what would Love do? If you were to view this circumstance with eyes of Love and pure light energy, would you see it differently? Is there a way to find opportunity in this challenge presenting itself? Life happens for you, not to you.  Everything is a mirror, showing you ways you can grow and learn more about yourself. Is there a way you can find appreciation for your circumstance, rather than create more tension around it? Remember, your thoughts and beliefs become your tomorrow.

Feeling insecure or not worthy?  Ask yourself, what would Love do? How does God see you? How does your Inner Being, your Higher Divine Being see you? If you were to see yourself in this way, you would just fall in absolute love with all that you are (and aren’t).  Even your “flaws” are perfectly suited for your life’s mission(s) and purpose.  You are a masterpiece, crafted in pure Loving energy. The non-physical part of you just adores your “human.”  You’re quite a character, you know? Really.  You’re fabulous.  Start believing it.

Don’t have a Love life? Think again.  Be your own "Someone Special", first and foremost.  Give yourself the Love and attention you crave.  Teach others how to treat you by how well you treat yourself.  Then, extend that love out into the world through Kindness and Compassion.

Today (and everyday), try to appreciate all the Love that there is in your life, no matter how that looks: kids, friends, family, loved ones, spouses or significant others, animals, businesses, hobbies, passions… the list is endless.  Love takes so many different forms.  If we look close enough, we will see so many examples of how much Love we have right Now.  And don’t forget to take time to treat someone special (YOU) to some extra TLC. The world will be a brighter place: the better you feel, the bigger your shine. The bigger your shine, the greater positive impact you have on the whole of humanity. We all need you to continually ask yourself, what would Love do? 

As You Move Through Your Days, Be Gentle...

When you open your eyes in the morning, be grateful.  Be still.  Set an intention for the day, repeat a mantra or commit to working on something you struggle with.  Each day, maintain your baby steps towards a better you, to feeling better and reaching for those good feelings and thoughts. Try a little harder, but be loving towards yourself each step of the way. Stop beating yourself up over everything.  Be gentle.  You are a beautiful soul, and your expansion, transformation and self-development are a process. Everything takes time.

This physical life is very temporary. It's time to see who you really are and why you came here. To realize your brilliance, and allow it to shine. It is very wasteful to spend your days harboring bad feelings and limiting your expression of light and love. There is no value in that whatsoever and only brings pain. 

Check in with yourself throughout the day to see how you’re feeling, where you’re at, and how you can change directions if you’re struggling. 

Allow. Allow your love and passion to flow. Allow creativity to be born through you. Enjoy what is. And dream for more. Live an authentic life, practice freedom of expression in all forms. 

Respect your body for the incredible vehicle it is, it houses the most priceless gift of life. Move, walk, dance and sing. Have fun doing it.  Enjoy nature. 

Stop focusing so much on what's missing, and what doesn’t feel good. Start to feel good about what is (and isn’t) and how miraculous it all is. It is okay to not have it all right now. We always have what we need in each moment. There is beauty and love and abundance around us at all times.  All we have to do is open our eyes, and shift our focus and perception.

Practice acceptance and surrender (pseudo) control. Not everything means something. And not everything is personal. Meet challenges with Grace, and live with integrity. Be kind… to yourself, to others, to animals, to the Earth. We are all in this together.

When you go to bed at night, quietly reflect on the day.  What challenges did you face? What could you have handled more gracefully? What can you forgive yourself for, or someone else, to move towards true healing? What can you shed light and love on to transform and absolve for a fresh start tomorrow? Honor the gifts bestowed upon you, focus on what felt good, and intend to strive for your desires, again, when you rise for a new day.

Again, be gentle with yourself. And life. It's all a process. But it’s all so very magnificent.
