Do you want love? You got love.
All the love you could ever want is lying dormant deep inside of you. Let’s introduce you to your love. Imagine there is a little four-year-old child living inside you. This child is very loving, caring and is very sensitive.
You are responsible for this child’s wellbeing. What kinds of things might you tell this child to assure him or her that you will do everything you can to keep him or her safe? How would you make sure that the child was cared for? How would you make the child feel respected, self-confident, happy, and loved?
Are there things you could do to make the child feel at risk? Could you do or say something to the child to make him or her feel fearful, neglected, uncared for, unloved, or maybe even wish he or she had never been born?
While this might seem like a silly exercise, there is a little one who lives inside you who wants to talk to you. Your inner child is that little, neglected version of you, who is afraid, tucked away deep in the shadows in you, hiding from you and doesn’t want to burden you. Until now, you have neglected this little child who is hidden between you and your heart.
Isn’t it time you met your inner child?
As you get to know this child better, loving, caring, and making him or her feel safe, secure, and enthusiastic about wanting to come out and play with you, the more love you will have for yourself and others.
If you continue to neglect this child, the love you have for yourself and others will wither away. Left alone, your inner child might find ways to interrupt normal life by pitching a fit or throwing a full-on tantrum.
Loving yourself, filling your heart full of love, is the only way to have love to share with others. You can go through the motions in an effort to express love to others, but to share authentic love energy with another being, you must first possess the love energy to give or exchange it. To love without the energy is just being nice, and there’s nothing wrong with that, if that’s all you can do.
That child within you is longing to be loved, and your act of loving that precious little child builds love’s energy inside of you. The more you love your inner child and yourself, the more love you have to share with others.
True love starts with you. You must honor and cherish yourself before attempting to love someone else, or expecting to receive love from someone else.
If you have no love inside, and someone else’s love makes you feel good, that good feeling that you feel will fade away. It is unsustainable if your heart is not overflowing with love. This is how you can become a love addict. Constantly seeking love from outside yourself, because your heart is empty inside.
The exchange of energetic love is the only way to experience true love, where the love inside of you overflows to the others, your love is reflected from them back to you, and it’s so much better if they are also overflowing their love energy to you, and it is reflecting back to them. This is the amazing, authentic love which is awakening in mankind at this very moment.
You have and are all that you need for true love. You are complete and whole in yourself. You don’t need to find someone to complete you or be your other half. You are not broken or incomplete without anyone else.
If your heart is full of love, you never have to seek love outside yourself, though the spice of life can be found in the reflection of love’s overflowing and intermingling with another.
Love is not about struggle, strain, or about manipulation or gain. You don’t have to work so hard to get the love, attention, or security you seek. When love is abundant, there is no need to covet, conquer, bargain, or control. Love is sacred, fearless, only trusts, protects, honors, is hopeful, and is safe.
Love seeks its own level. Love goes where it overflows.
True love is likened to the love between a loving mother and her perfect newborn baby. There is no jealousy, contractual agreement, trading this for that, no guarantees or expectations. Only pure, fully open, overflowing love as they gaze into each other’s eyes.
Are you ready for better, more authentic love?
