As soul beings, we are here to love deeply, AND be loved deeply.
Both sides of this coin make up the wholeness of what we are, why we are here, and the wholeness of what we NEED.
Most teachings in spirituality focus on the love deeply aspect of this, which is why many spiritual seekers are highly imbalanced because they are very strong in how to be loving, but have no idea on how to be loved. They know how to GIVE, but know nothing to very little about how to receive.
And it is receiving that nourishes you the most.
Receiving the energy of your own soul (which is Love), instead of always giving it away.
This imbalance has led to most seekers feeling drained, exhausted, unfulfilled/unhappy, and often manifesting some type of illness of disease, and not knowing why.
This is why I teach selflove so adamantly. Selflove is how you receive. It is the practice of receiving - receiving the energy of your own soul (love).
This is also why self-love is a healing work + an evolutionary practice. It will bring healing to you because it helps fill you up with the energy of your own soul and restore you to the healthy balance between giving and receiving.
And it is an evolutionary practice because once you learn how to receive (be loved) everything in your life transforms for the better, you start attracting more consistently and frequently what truly tastes delicious to you, and your own life starts to feel like heaven on earth.
Your soul is the greatest source of wisdom available to you.
Because it is literally connected to every soul that exists - the ones that are currently living, the ones that are no longer living, and the ones that never incarnated into this dimension.
This is why it’s so important to trust the wisdom that comes from your soul, more than the external information you may receive from others.
Yes, take external information, listen to other people, ask for counsel from other people who may know more about something than you do currently. But, also use your soul as the barometer to decipher and decide what you will ultimately follow.
You’re soul has the broadest perspective available, and it’s wisdom is always love-based. It is the highest and deepest wisdom around, and it is ALWAYS, only, focused on your well-being.
Often, external information is fear-based - guided and steeped in fear or shame. And not always focused on your well-being.
My rule of thumb is always: my internal intuition over external information.
In this dimension, the only person you can truly practice unconditional love with is yourself.
The rest of the relationships you have with other people will be some form of conditional love.
Can you never leave yourself, no matter what?
With another, you may need to leave them depending on their relationship to honoring your boundaries, and meeting your needs. If it’s harmful to you, you may need to end the relationship with them. But you? No matter what you do or don’t do, unconditionally loving yourself means staying in relationship with yourself, not neglecting or rejecting yourself, not shaming yourself, always, only viewing + treating yourself with unconditional positive regard. ❤️
It’s about clearing/cleansing your energy of what is keeping you from embodying the vibrations of peace, freedom and well-being, which are all facets of Love Energy. Forgiveness brings you back home to Love Energy, which is your True Essence. It’s the energy of your soul.
Which is why it’s so important, because being disconnected from your True Essence is not benign; it ALWAYS manifests suffering - in our external lives, and in the health of our bodies.
There is no well-being or wellness when we are disconnected from our true essence, from our Home Energy.
Forgiveness brings us back to our Home Energy, no matter what they did or didn’t do.
We take them out of the equation altogether, and put our well-being and wellness back in the center of that equation, where they belong.
And return home to yourself.
[P.S. if you need help with this forgiving process, watch my YouTube video on “Forgiveness.” It walks you through the steps]
It’s the frequency of who we truly are - who/what are soul is. And it brings ALL the good things.
What most don’t know is that The Universe sends all our highest good (ALL the good things) to our Home Address.
So when we come Home, we receive our desires, our dreams, our good. And in abundance.
The key is to come Home.
To connect with our True Energy.
We cannot receive what is authentically ours if we are not Home, where it’s all being sent.
Here are a few ways to connect with your True Energy:
✨ meditate more
✨ go for long walks in nature more
✨ forgive everyone, for everything
✨ work in your passions
✨ do something you find really fun, daily
✨ say what you need/want/mean to say
✨ communicate + honor your boundaries
✨ write in self-appreciation journal
✨ have the courage to be/express your True Self
✨ spend more time with people who really love you
✨ healing your trauma
✨ rest + relax
Just come Home.
And the frequency of being home will attract everything else. ❤️
One of the many sacred results of loving ourselves is that it frees the people around us. They no longer have to try and rearrange themselves, or edit themselves, or hide or suppress parts of themselves, or pretend to be something they are not in order to be liked or approved of. Because the more we love ourselves, the more our very presence is an energy of acceptance, and people feel safe within it, and relax more into their truth.
They let their guards down, and allow themselves to be seen, as is.
This, alone, is a medicine.
It is a healing presence.
But we cannot be this presence fully for others if we are not it yet for ourselves.
Becaus if we are still judging ourselves, picking apart ourselves, shaming ourselves, rejecting aspects of ourselves, making ourselves feel like there’s something wrong or unlovable or not enough about us, then somehow, this is the very thing we offer and project on to others.
For what we cannot be with about ourselves, we will not be able to be with in others.
But what we’ve learned to love and accept in ourselves, we will offer that same love and acceptance to others.
Life loves YOU. But many of us have been socialized or traumatized out of trusting this, so we don't manifest a lot of evidence of this in our lives. But, the moment you dare truly trust this again, your entire life begins to transform before your very eyes. Often, miraculously so.
Trusting Life loves YOU is a game changer.
Leave a ❤️ in a comment below if this is the next step in your spiritual growth.
The Universe will rise to support you in giving you whatever you need to stay in your Home Energy because IT NEEDS YOU THERE!!!
Your Home Energy actually feeds The Universe, expands it, and causes it to become more than it is.
Without it, The Universs becomes stagnate and diminished.
Your Home Energy is Love. The Universe wants you to be home in Love. Embodying the Energy of Love and loving your life from this energy, as much as possible.
It needs you to.
So when you take a step to being home, and you need some support in order to stay there, IT WILL BRING IT TO YOU.
Whether that support is money, guidance or clarity, people who support you, healing help, etc, whatever you need to be in the energy of Love you will receive.
But only after you take the step to say: “Love is who I am, and being who I am is important to me. I want to feel most like myself, and I’m willing to do now what it takes feel this way, and to stop not feeling this way.”
The Universe cannot support you until you do this step. You are not waiting on The Universe, it is waiting on you.
As a soul being, you are here to be love, AND you are here to RECEIVE love. To be LOVED. Most spiritual teachings focus on being love (giving love to others), but very, very few teach you how to be LOVED. What it means, what it takes, and how to move through life in a state of receiving love.
And this is why so many spiritual seekers are imbalanced. Most spiritual seekers energy is primarily focused on giving, and is very, very weak (even blocked) on receiving.
This is why I teach self-love.
Self-love is the practice of receiving.
The more you love yourself, the more you become a balanced being.
