It is hard to change a perception, isn’t it?
Hubby and I were discussing last night, the ability to focus on the positive attributes of someone, rather than on the negative.
For example, I could rant about my hubby in my blog…about the things that he does that irritates me….but I don’t.
Because I have come to realise that me focusing on the positive aspects makes him feel good, and by making him feel good I achieve what I set out to do. So instead of a grouchy, unmovable, stubborn husband…I have one who is willing to listen, learn and love.
The way I see it is this – I am filling him up with so much love and positive energy…the negative energy eventually dissolves…it has nowhere to live inside his body.
Think about this…when someone praises you…it makes you feel good and you are happy to be in that person’s company.
It might not get rid of the little irritations that exist between you, but eventually the love cancels out the irritations…which would grow if you focused on them.
Simple, isn’t it?
But for most of us it is an intellectual concept. I know I harp on about this but until the body understands the concept, you ain’t really gonna change how you feel. And in order for it to work you really need to actually feel it without doubt. The mind cannot make these things happen unless the body is in sync or alignment. All knowledge that is in the mind and not in the body…simply is intellectual knowledge.
For years I remember wondering how on earth it was possible to love hubby when all I felt was anger resentment and dislike. Finally after all the emotional clearing I did…yay, my body eventually understood and hence I became a living expression of that understanding without any noticeable effort on my part (except for the hundreds of years run up to that understanding....hehe).
Do we have arguments…yeah of course we do. Show me a couple that doesn’t. But we resolve them quickly…because the energy of love doesn’t leave much space for anything but resolution.
I am the pure embodiment of love
I am perfect whole and complete
Love is everywhere and I am loving and lovable
The world is safe and people are kind and caring
I still chant this mantra to myself every day and through sheer determination and will power…my body finally understood the concept of love. Love in spite of shortcomings. Love that loves in spite of any differences. It is a love of acceptance and tolerance…but doesn’t make you a push over. It is the kind of love that makes you strong when you stand in your power, but flexible when needed.
Treat everyone in your life with love and respect and if you really feel it in your body…it will come back to you a hundredfold. If you don’t feel it…keep on persevering…one day it will suddenly become a reality.
Please don’t beat yourself up if you don’t feel it yet. You will get there…I did and I am so pleased I persevered. I reap the rewards of the hard work over the years. The energy flooding the earth is helping all of us to get where we need to be.
May the sun shine in your world today and fill you with love.
I gotta go…my kitty is demanding her share of love and attention :-)
Have a fab weekend…and for those of you celebrating Mother’s Day…have a wonderful day.
