The goal of this article: To help you understand the #1 essence that drives everything in our lives. This emotion and state of being is the #1 driver of your life and you’ll be damned if you don’t steer it in the right direction.
Disclaimer: This is not a mushy-gushy article about unicorns, being overly positive, rainbows and ponies. My goal is to open your eyes and your heart to love, so you could see and feel how it affects ALL aspects of your life. This blog article is long overdue, and hopefully with this knowledge, you can make significant changes in your life now and forever.
We Are a Tribe Who Sing for…
In the book, Gila: Life and Death of an American River, the author writes about a moment when an anthropologist once asked a Hopi why his people’s songs were often about rain.
The Hopi said, “Because water is so scarce. Is that why so many of your songs are about love?”
Think about this for a moment. Have you ever noticed that majority of the songs in our society are about love? Our society is thirsty for love.
Why we crave to feel, give and receive love
We sing and talk about love all the time, yet often times, our hearts are completely closed to give and receive love. Why is that? What changed? Was it always like that? When was the last time you felt pure, unquestioned, fully accepting, non-judgmental and authentic love? When was the last time you had a long period of time where you felt passion and drive for what you’re doing for yourself and for others?
This article is about all forms of love, because love lives in many forms, such as:
Love lives in all (and more) of the above forms; it’s the drive that fuels your ambitions and pushes you to achieve your goals.
Many of us live everyday without embodying the true essence of love and then go through our days complaining for the lack of love (romantic or not) that we have in our lives. We lack love, because we are not embodying it. If you are not creating love within, it will be difficult for you to receive and experience true love. It’s as simple as that. If you don’t embody and live your life with love, love will have a hard time finding you.
How to create more love in your life…
Below is a simple meditation, which can help you create more love in your life. Whether you aim to create love in your personal or professional life, I challenge you to try the following meditation.
- Sit up straight (cross your legs if that’s the most comfortable position for you) on a yoga mat or a chair.
- Close your eyes and imagine a beam of light appearing from the cosmos, entering your heart.
If it is hard to imagine a beam of light, don’t force it. Instead, let it come naturally with very little effort.
- As thoughts come, let them go with each exhale.
Focus on your breath and on the beam of beautiful warm light entering your heart.
- As you feel the light, say to yourself, “I open my heart to give and receive love.”
Stay in meditation for 15 minutes if possible (or 5 minutes to start with and then increase with time).
Some of my clients get a lot of inspiration and clarity from this meditation, not to mention an urge to sit in meditation for a longer period of time.
This meditation only scratches the surface of helping you discover and attain love, drive and passion in your life. Imagine the possibilities…
If it is your first time mediating and your mind starts to wonder too much, don’t get discouraged. This only means that your mind desperately needs peace and quiet. Reach out to me and let me know how I can support you.
Until next time…
