Inside you is a magical child (Emmet Fox). The child is not programmed of all the false truths our society has come to belief.
Deepak Chopra calls it the Wizard. “Therefore, in accepting the world as it is, the wizard views everything in the light of self-acceptance, which is the light of love.” The magical child accepts everything with love. So does your dog. So does a sunset or a spring flower. So go ahead and celebrate the child within and JUST LOVE.
UNCONDITIONAL POSITIVE REGARD. A term coined by the famous psychologist Carl Rogers. It is being fully present for others, paying attention to what they are saying, eye contact and genuine interest. I would call being authentically there for the other person. This attention to another comes from the heart and the other person can feel the energy and it can have a healing effect. Being heard by another is life affirming. So today please give your undivided attention to someone you care about and spread authentic love.
The story is called THE CRABBY CASHIER.
She is rude, curt and down right mean in her behavior towards you. Like you are really, really bothering her and annoying her and you have done nothing to provoke this.
So you decide to run the story in your mind: “Oh the poor thing. This morning when she woke up her boyfriend had left and taken her dog. When she went to get in the car to go to work it had 2 flat tires. Now she was late and she was rushing to work because she was already under probation for being late and rent was due. She was starving so she whipped through the drive through and on the way a driver cut her off and she spilled the coffee all down her front. When she finally pulled into the parking lot at work someone was parked in her spot. As she ran to get into work her heel broke and she twisted her ankle…..”.and on and on you can go with this story in your mind.
All of a sudden YOUR vibration shifts and a large wave of compassion washes over you and the cashier. She changes right before your eyes. Try this, it works like magic and it is fun to make up the worst case scenario you can about someone that is taking their day out on you.
LOVE IS the delightful giggle of a small child. LOVE IS the soft kiss of a puppy on your cheek, LOVE IS the neon hues of a glorious sunset. LOVE IS the beauty of a snowflake. LOVE IS everywhere, just look and you will see.
Some of you may remember the book “I’m OK, You’re OK. Or how about the chidrens’ book, The Little Engine That Could. ” I think I can, I think I can.” As we learn the power of the thoughts we hold in our minds and hearts and raising the vibrational energy in alignment with harmony, those stories hold very powerful lessons. So much of your precious energy is wasted on thoughts of what is wrong with me, or with her, or with him. Precious energy that could be used instead to draw upon the power of love. If someone or something is irritating you today change your perception of them which will change your vibrational energy and JUST LOVE.
“MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL, WHO DO I LOVE MOST OF ALL?” Louise Hay is one of my mainstay gurus on Love and her tool of mirror work is very powerful. Here is what she advises you to do: Go to the mirror or have a mirror with you and look deep into your own eyes and say: I LOVE YOU, I REALLY, REALLY LOVE YOU”. Notice what comes up for you.
Is it the critic, that part of you that so loves to judge you and keep you locked in the grips of the ego? Does it feel strange and uncomfortable. Yet, if you observe radiant, happy and well adjusted people, what do you think they say to themselves when they reflect on their own image?
Try it and don’t give up, It shifts your perception of yourself. A change perception changes EVERYTHING.
Love means to thine own self be true. When you are in alignment with the truth of who you are you will no longer judge yourself. You will still the critic in your mind chatter. Your heart will expand and you will feel the pulse of aliveness.
When you are not being true to yourself you will feel constricted and you cut off the higher vibrations of love pulsing through your mind, body and spirit. It is just so, so simple. JUST LOVE.
