“The energy of love is abundant, waiting to be called upon. Mindfulness helps us generate the energy to love and understanding. True love has the power to heal and bring meaning to our life.” Thich Nhat Hanh
Such truth in those words. My happiest moments are when I was loving and loved. As I am finding out, love is the most powerful energy in the world. It is love that helps bring vibrations in our body up and helps propel us in new directions and fresh adventures. Love gives us strength, courage and helps us become strong, more compassionate, and heal us.
When we do not feel love or find that our love is being taken but not given back… we see illness enter our world. Pain and so much more enter our lives that cause depressed feelings, resentment and anger, as well as we tend to shut down. Love brings up vibrations in the body. It has shown me this energy from these vibrations heals and brings joy.
I Corinthians 13:13 came up today. One of my favorite verses in the Bible, and yes, just because I am a witch doesn’t mean I haven’t read the bible, oh, and I did master in religion just an FYI. I love this verse because it speaks to my heart from my heart.
13 If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of Spirit’s Secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing. 4 love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boasting of proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice, but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
8 Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge, we become useless. But love will last forever! Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, reveals only part of the whole picture. But when the time of perfection comes, these things will become useless.
11 When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as Spirit nows knows me completely.
13 Three things will last forever–faith, hope, and love–and the greatest of these is love.
The greatest memories in my life were the love I have felt, to be around love, to be loved. No amount of money or materialistic shit makes a hill of beans when there is no love. Love is an energy. It’s not a word, a noun or verb. It’s an amazing energy. It heals, it puts wrongs right; it moves mountains. Love moves us, directs us, helps us grow to move forward on our journey in life. When we lose love, it can destroy countries, families and friendships.
The energy of love feels like you won the lottery, gives you courage, brings peace, and healing. It connects us to our higher self.
I lost my love energies, and I know that I am searching for love, but here is the thing: I will never find it outside of myself. Everything I need is within me. Spirit lives inside of me. I do not have to look to others or outside of myself to find love. I feel right now that my love that I have given has been crumbled up and thrown back in my face. I don’t believe it is on purpose, but comes from their lack of love and compassionate within themself. Love starts first within yourself.
As I look back at my relationship, I see it being one sided, and they did not receive the love I gave or appreciated. In fact, as I look back, I see how it was ignored. That love being destroyed when it was ignored or taken for granted.
As I see this now, I realize this is causing me to suffer, and is hurting me.
It’s hard to move on and stop waiting for this relationship to awaken. No matter how hard I want to make this relationship balanced and work. I can not help others who do not know how to receive love and do not want to know how to give it back.
The human being is the spirit in this human form, loves to give and give back. I give and I want back what I give. It is not natural not to want back what we give. And we should never feel guilty for wanting love back. NO! You can not keep giving and not get anything back. That is impossible and whoever says this is very limited in their thoughts. You need love just as much as you need to love. You are worth their time and respect, and if you are around someone who treats you with no respect or love, GET AWAY FROM THEM!!
But here is the thing: you need to start with yourself first, because you can only love and understand another when you have practiced love and understanding yourself. To love means to be there for yourself! Everyone wants to be embraced by the mindful attention of the one they love, including yourself.
It is time to stand up, love, respect, protect, honor, and strengthen yourself. I have been working on that.
“Your presence is very precious to me and is crucial to my happiness. To hear I am here, I recognize my presence. I offer my presence to you, my beloved one. This is the best gift a lover can make to their beloved one. Including yourself. With mindfulness, you can make your presence more pleasant, more loving , and you can offer that wonderful presence to your beloved one and make happiness for both of you.” Yet, both of you must be on the same vibrational wave. Both need to want to give 100%.
