Love Begins With You
Thursday, January 21, 2021
Is your heart open and warm toward the people you care about, if so, express your love to them today. Sharing with your loved ones just how much they mean to you might give you a chance to bring you even closer to them. If you can let your feelings emanate from within your heart by doing a loving-kindness mediation today, you may notice that your expressions of love can become much more genuine and heartfelt. Sitting quietly, try to bring your attention to your heart. With each inhale, imagine that you are being filled with unconditional love from the universe, and on each exhale picture this love enveloping you. Doing this first for yourself and then for each person you care about can allow you to open your heart to others in an extremely profound way.
If I were to ask you to name all the things that you love. How long would it take you to name yourself?
Loving ourselves first through the powerful tool of loving-kindness mediation helps us generate loving feelings for others more deeply. When we cultivate feelings of compassion for ourselves, we begin to embody what love truly is. Our expression of these powerful emotions to other people then becomes an extension of our own loving nature, and our words, thoughts, and actions will in turn show our truest intent. Manifesting love within fuels our ability to demonstrate our love outside of ourselves. By envisioning yourself filled with affection, you will generate a potent energetic force filled with unconditional love that you will be more able to express to others today.
