Everything we are experiencing in life can only come from one of two places: We are either coming from love or fear. And all that fear is, is the absence of love. So therefore, there is only one energy in the universe, and that is love.
When you come from a place of love, you are in connection with source, the universe and your highest self. Being in a state of love equals being in a state of alignment. And being in alignment is what we should all strive for in order to live a happy, fulfilled life.
We have created this article for you to join this journey of love. Love for yourself, for others, for life and the Divine.
LOVE FOR YOURSELF
Self-love is the root from which everything grows.
We have all heard it a million times already: “Just love yourself”. But what does that even mean? Most people assume that loving yourself means taking a bubble bath and speaking daily affirmations. And yes, we agree that that’s a great way to practice self-care, but it’s not all self-love is about. Self-love is unconditional! It’s easy to state we love ourselves on good days when everything seems to fall into place so easily. But what about the bad days? What about those days when you feel depressed, unworthy, unloved? True self-love is the same on good and bad days and is never dependent on 1. your outer circumstances and 2. your current emotions.
A great exercise to implement into your life is to constantly ask yourself: “What would I do today if I truly and genuinely loved myself?”. The answer will come to you as an immediate flash of intuition and you’ll know what you have to do. Start making decisions based on that mindset and you’ll see how your life changes. You’ll always act from a place of love and therefore open up your heart to the universe. All its energy will rush into you and fill you with so much joy and love. More love than you could ever imagine.
LOVE FOR OTHERS
The beauty you see in others is merely a reflection of your own. True self-love is only achieved when being able to acknowledge someone else’s beauty, success and happiness without questioning your own. Loving yourself for what you are means loving others for what they are. Someone who truly and deeply loves themselves would not look down on another person with hate or judgment. Instead, they would fill the whole world with love and compassion. What you radiate out into the universe, will come back to you in fascinating ways. We are all just souls inhabiting human bodies and trying to figure out this weird, but beautiful thing called life. Let’s stick together.
LOVE FOR LIFE
Be grateful. Most people constantly rush from one thing to the other not even realizing how truly magical it is to be walking around on this big blue dot called “earth” spinning in vast nothingness. Being alive is the greatest gift that has ever been given to us. So, whenever you find yourself going through a tough or stressful time, remind yourself of what it is that is really important in life. Go out into nature, look into the night sky and speak to yourself: “I am here. I am alive and blessed with this life experience. This is all that matters.” You are here to experience the beauty of being human. And being human is both; joy and pain, love and fear. Appreciate both, because we need one to feel the other.
LOVE FOR THE DIVINE
When you come from a place of love, you are tapping into the connection with source, the universe and your highest self. Love is the greatest energy in the universe, so whenever you act in the most loving way possible, you are living in alignment with your Highest Self. Your Highest Self is inseparable from that which we call Source Energy. It is all that you have ever been and all that you are. But why should we even strive to live in alignment? To live in alignment means to only hold positive thoughts about yourself and the world around you, thoughts that radiate the same frequency as your desire. So, in order to manifest your dream life, it is essential to live in alignment with the Divine; your Highest Self.
Visualize your Highest Self; The best version or yourself; The person you’d like to become. What does she do on a daily basis? What thoughts does she think? What foods does she eat? What people does she surround herself with? Write it all down and then actually start implementing it as much as possible into your life. Constantly ask yourself: “What would my Highest Self do in this situation?” And then do it.
This is what living in alignment really means. It is expressing love for the Divine. As soon as you start doing this, you’ll witness your life changing into the direction you want it to go. You’ll see all areas in your life fall into place peacefully and suddenly you’ll find yourself standing in the middle of your dreams. Always remember: What you send out, will come back to you – so make sure everything you say and do comes from a place of love.
