A Life Long Love-Affair with Yourself

With this February newsletter, I thought I would check in with the Posse of Angels and ask them what they thought of the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday. Well, The Posse of Angels was very amused and they asked me, “Why don’t humans have a National Breathing Day?” and “Why isn’t there a National Beating of your Heart Day?” Breathing and the beating of our hearts are similar to love, as they happen naturally. And most of the time, they occur without us even realizing it. I guess their point is that to love and to be loved is a natural thing that all human beings have, and that we can have love in our lives in any second if we choose to receive it. But most of the time, we are so dead set on preaching to the Universe how love is supposed to be in our lives, that we diminish and close off the possibilities of how and when we can experience love. If we buy into the vision of love perpetuated by the greeting card companies, the chocolate manufacturers, the florists and the jewelers, we can get caught up in a very, commercialized form of love that is built around conditions and expectations. For instance, some of these conditions might have us thinking that: • My partner loves me if he buys me flowers. Or, • If he really loves me, he will buy me flowers and a diamond ring. Or, • If he truly loves me the most, he will buy me flowers, a diamond ring, a new Ferrari and a villa in the South of France. The whole point is that once we start to play this game, it is difficult to know where to stop. Appropriating a single day to show love is so insanely ludicrous because at the most profound depth of whom we are as human beings is the fact that WE ARE LOVE in every single second! In fact, we are so inextricably linked with God that even if we do not think we are love, this connection of divine love always exists underneath any false premise that we choose to perpetuate. And if it is dormant and asleep within us, love can be re-awakened in the blink of an eye. And counter to what all the great romance novels and romantic movies have shown us, love does not happen because of who we are with, love happens because of who we are. But, it can only happen with our permission. Many times, we deny that we are love because we are replaying old programs of believing someone else’s words that caused us to feel not worthy or not deserving of love. But deep within, underneath any negative belief system, the angels want to remind you that you are not only love but you are more beautiful , more powerful and more magnificent than you could ever possibly imagine. In fact, as a child of God, you are loved, not only on a specific day, but in every single second of every single day, every single month and every single year before you were born, since you born and will be forever. This is not dependent on what you are given, what you own, what you drive, what you wear or if you ever produce, create or even if you achieve anything. This love is indisputable, unconditional, constant and un-wavering. How extraordinarily fortunate are you!!! If your life is not representative of these words, it may be because you have forgotten who you are and are allowing external expectations and conditions to dictate if you are allowed to be loved. Actually the hardest I have ever seen the angels weep, is for those clients who have completely forgotten who they are; as they have forgotten the love of God inside. Because when we forget who we are, we stop loving ourselves and stop seeing ourselves as having any importance. Once we stop acknowledging our importance, we then begin to seek and find our identity in other people and things outside of ourselves. This sets us on a perpetual carousel of giving our power away. So remember, if you have been disappointed by love on Valentine’s Day or any other day of the year, ask yourself where in your life that you can put more focus and attention on the creation of your importance. Perhaps you could: Write that book that you have inside yourself? Dare to switch to a more honoring job? Take that holiday that you’ve dreamed about? Honor your gifts and talents and share them with the world. And if you wake up on Valentine’s Day morning and do not find your new Ferraris parked in your garage, or your breakfast tray does not come with a diamond ring on it nor two plane tickets to your villa in the South of France, remember that love is not something that you are given or have to search for; love is something that you already are. Until next time, remember that by having a life-long love affair with yourself, it will constantly bring you the richest fulfillment from the inside out.
