What is Love to You?

What is love?
 What is your personal definition of love and what does it mean to you?
 Where in your life do you feel the presence of unconditional love?
 How do you show love to yourself?
 Where and how can you show more unconditional love in your life?

love heals all

These questions help us to take a step back and become aware of our true thoughts and feelings surrounding love.  At our very cores, in our most natural form, we are love.  Part of the reason love feels so good is because we are allowing our inner selves to be seen in it’s most vulnerable form.  When we allow our ideals about love to be shifted and skewed by another’s perspective we find that the love in our lives does not feel fulfilling.  We feel as if we are lacking love, or we feel as though there is struggle or work associated to the love in our life.

Truth is, these feelings of lack and unfulfillment, struggle and work are illusions we’ve allowed ourselves to believe through altering our own personal essence to be shifted to fit or be boxed within another’s.  

Remember Love comes in all shapes and sizes,
through daily monotony and surprises

Love is the connecting link to all that is life
not just a family, or husband and wife

Love is what we are in our purest of forms
True love never ever expects us to conform

Unconditional Love is the main ingredient
in our quest for inner and outer peace
Which is why it is so important to make sure
it is something we always practice and never cease.

So this February, as we begin to see

THe Reds & Hearts
HUgs & Kisses

While recalling those chick flicks and stereotypes that portray

The feelings behind a new Mr. & Mrs.

It’s important to remember that love is more than that….
Whether it’s seen as:

A deep rooted emotion
or An enticing game
that when sparked has the potential
to ignite an everlasting flame

Alll those..

Roses & Candy
Dinner & Dates
Are nice but not always needed
in the union of two inevitable fates

Because Love…

which usually appears as a deeply felt attraction


Is as unique and special as the two souls exchanging it

A Secret language between two
and an irreplaceable bond amongst the one you love and you

 

I hope this portrays to you that even in all the fluff, superficial, and material forms our society pushes into LOVE on this Holiday….that it is more than that.  That while gestures and gifts can be comforting and make you feel good, the BOND you share, in true UNCONDITIONAL love is all you need.

So RELAX…take the pressure off your relationship today (Even if you are choosing to HONOR the one you have with yourSELF) and immerse fully into the unique connections your lover and you share. It’s IRREPLACEABLE, one of a kind…and whether it stands the test of time matters not; for on this day, in this moment you are in LOVE.  You are enamored by their presence.  You want to EXPERIENCE life with them by your side.  In all reality at the CORE of your love it matters not what surrounds you.

The GREATEST thing about love and being in it is…when it comes right down to it, it’s a UNION of you and your partner and that is all you NEED.  Like the famous Beatles Song:

All you Need is Love”
So go out today…and every day really….and…
~BE LOVE ~
let it flow freely through all that you are
~Be Open to the Love that Seeks You~
allow it to find you and wrap you in it’s warmth
~Be Grateful~
for all the presence of love in your life

Because…

At the deep dungeony depths of our heart’s desires
All we truly want is to LOVE and to BE loved
in ALL forms.
So
~Honor~
your HEARTS wishes
and make every MOVEMENT today
from a place of LOVE

Love is the energy that connects us all

A year ago at this time, I posted this quote on my lifecoachrenee facebook page: “A greater understanding of self-enables a greater understanding of the world we live in. That holds true for us today as well.

The new year is always a good time to learn more about yourself, your neighbors, your friends and even who we might consider our “enemies” as the media would want us to think. Those of us who are perceived different because of race, religion, beliefs, and cultures are constantly pitted in an us against them scenario.  For quite some time now, I have put myself on a media diet and like most diets I would yo-yo back and forth between watching and reading news and not.

These days I have found a new solution that appeases my heart and I believe my soul as well as long as I leave my head out of it. When I find something out that hits home or across the world-I write it down and then I take it  to my meditation time and give it up to God.  I always ask for the highest and best outcome for the person, place or situation but I like to think that just taking that little bit of time out of my day or some times week actually”helps things along some how”. In some ways, I believe being aware of what goes on in the world, and not being attached to the outcome enables me to understand myself and the world better so that I can act from that place of understanding AND actually make a difference in the world.

I have made many promises to myself this year to be a better person, to be of service more, to worry less, to be more productive, to get my message out to a bigger audience, to have fun more, to actually write letters to friends and family in a digital age-the list is endless. And yet all of these things, whether I fulfill that promise or not, enables me to understand myself better and the world we live in as long as I am not grasping at the outcome.

My most recent lifecoachrenee post reads  ” I am one with every living being because we are all in and of the same consciousness. Thusly I can never be separate from love for love is the connecting energy of all things within that one”-Arcturian Council

I would like to think that in my feeble little brain of possibilities and imagination, that some day we ALL will understand what that means for everyone. But we still have a long way to go and we can start by understanding ourselves so that we can really begin to understand each other.

For we are all in this together, no matter what our race, religion, culture and or belief, we all know love, we all are love, and we all come from that same divine source of consciousness that is love expressing itself through us on this beautiful blue marble that we call our home….. and by golly if that is not inspiring us to live from the Heart Center-then I don’t know what can……..
