Have you ever heard of anyone saying “I feel so loved” or, “so many people love and care about me”!
I certainly have not come across that but what I have come across is, “Nobody loves or cares about me”, “my parents didn’t love me”, “my husband doesn’t understand or love me”!
These erroneous beliefs do not come from our Higher Self, but rather from our personality because we do not see the bigger picture. We are looking through the eyes of a wounded person who has latched onto a negative way of thinking and like a Pit Bull, does not want to let go!
The truth is that we have simply interpreted situations in such a way as to ensure we do not “feel loved”.
From a spiritual level, we are always loved without judgment. We are always connected to God, the Universe and Spirit however, we may have chosen to let go of our connection and separate ourselves from this love by buying into negative beliefs about love and choosing to hold these as our truth!
How many people die feeling unloved and alone? How many empty lives full of addictions and mental illness are due to “not feeling loved?”.
The thing is, love is all around us. If only we would look for it, we would find it. For, what you focus on, you increase in your life. Imagine then that we could live a life of abundant love instead of dying feeling like a pauper BUT, we have to choose this!
What happens is that we have made up our own rules as to how we may feel loved. If the people we share our lives with do not show their love according to our rules, we then choose not to receive the love that is actually being offered; we literally cannot see the love because we are so blinkered, expecting love to come to us according to our demands that we miss the love that is waiting for our acknowledgment and choose instead to complain that we are not loved!
What a shame! Instead of questioning our beliefs, we choose to beg for love everywhere and yet receive none when it is always on our doorstep awaiting our recognition.
How many people die of a broken heart not knowing how loved they were?
Right now, people all around you love you. Will you choose to accept their gift or will you deny it and prefer instead to bemoan the life that nobody loves you?
Wake up people – let us begin looking for instances of love everywhere. If our spouse cannot show us love the way we demand it to be, it doesn’t mean they don’t love us; it simply means we are unwilling to receive love in the way they are attempting to give it to us!!!!!
Let’s drop our ridiculous rules in order that love can finally find us.
Let’s make it easy for ourselves to recognise all the ways we are loved. A smile from a stranger, a lick from your dog, your spouse doing the washing up, someone giving you a compliment – all of these are ways people love us BUT we take them for granted so much that we do not recognise them as acts of love!
Why not start today to create a Love Journal. Notice and document every instance of love in your day, everyday and see how loved you feel after a week! Stop moaning about the lack of love and start receiving the abundance that is yours. And, while you are at it, see how much love you can contribute to other people each day!
Let’s create a World Of Love together by finding small ways to cheer others, to inspire and uplift them so that they also know that “there is only Love” and that everything else is a lie!
Until next time.
Lots of love to you
