With Valentine’s Day celebrated today all kinds of hearts are made in various forms and shapes from chocolate to plastic, encouraging us to show our love in some material way. However, material gifts can only be valued when given from the heart with intention of love and gratitude.
Beyond the gifts, can we think about being loved and expanding love into our relationships?
Love doesn’t have to be loud and flashy. Its presence can be felt when we are in a quiet space and in touch with our true loving nature. Love can be felt when we spend time alone, when we meditate, when we emerge ourselves in the enjoyable activities, or when we help other people. Self-love can transform your world and your relationships.
The following practices can help you shift into a higher frequency of love and naturally amplify quality of your relationships.
Clear Your Love Corner
Based on the Feng Shui Baqua Map, find the Love and Marriage corner in your house. It is located in the far right hand corner of your house.
Place two objects in this area which would symbolize your romantic relationship (for example, two crystals, two hearts, or a picture showing two birds). This will energetically bring your attention into the area of the relationship. If you single, your can focus on creating a loving, and caring relationship with yourself.
If this area of the house is cluttered, discard unused items, remove the old photos, especially those that reflect your past relationships. The pictures of your children who left the nest should not be placed in this area of the house.
Fall in love with Yourself
Remember, we weren’t born with the knowledge about how to love ourselves. Some parents and our environment conditioned us to ignore our loving nature. Many of us can feel guilty when we treat ourselves while others are craving for our attention. This guilt takes us even deeper into denial of our own needs and we give up trying to be kind to ourselves.
The following exercise will tell you if you have problems in the area of self-love:
- Come to the mirror and look into your eyes.
- Say these phrases out loud while looking into your eyes in the mirror:
- I completely forgive myself for everything I have done wrong to others or myself.
- I totally and completely accept every part of my being.
- I treat every part of my body with love and respect.
- I am perfect just the way I am. There is nothing I need to change about myself.
- Repeat the last phrase 6 times.
If you have tears or resistance while saying these phrases, it means your conscious intentions are not in harmony with your subconscious mind. This can be a problem when you are trying to change something in your life. You would always roll back to your old patterns.
Remember, all choices you make in life are made based on your subconscious beliefs. You need to focus on shifting the beliefs that don’t serve you in the current situation. Energy therapies, such as EFT, EMDR, meditation, Past Life Therapy, or Energy Healing can help with letting go of the old belief system and replace it with healthy intentions.
Cultivate self-love on daily basis.
