I will thank you in advance for falling deeply, madly, unabashedly in love with yourself. For as you do, you will also love me and the rest of us. This is alchemy at its finest.
I feel a bit like singer/songwriter Paul McCartney as I write this post. In one of his late 70’s songs with the band Wings, post Beatles, he croons “You think that people would have had enough of silly love songs, I look around me and I see it isn’t so, oh no…” In fact I hear it playing in some far off corner of my mind. And this all because I am about to write to you about love.
Here is the situation. When you arrived to the planet, you came front loaded with love. In fact, it was all you ever knew. Where you are from, there IS only Love. It is the gas in the vehicle by which you got here in the first place. And it is the electromagnetic stuff, some like to call God Particles, of which your atoms cling unto one another. To be sure, love goes by many names.
If you want to consciously manifest experiences in your life that give you a sense of meaning, belonging and connection, all attributes of love, then love itself has to be first applied. Liberally in fact. If I were you I would stop worrying about sunscreen and start slathering on love. In every way imaginable.
Ah, now we come to the most important part. You can see the conundrum of the last paragraph above. Just HOW does a human apply love? While any kind of love is good love, none of it can cling to you and grow you until you have begun to practice and master one thing. SELF love. Uh oh.
And guess what you promptly forgot when you got here? Self love. In fact to be sure you forgot it, most world religions and cultural norms and mores in industrialized nations enforced the message. Do Not Love Thyself. Nope. No way. Just do not do it. Love others, yes, but while its a great idea to groom yourself and exercise each day, keep self love out of your personal equation. Unless, of course, someone else is willing to give you some of theirs.
Note: This is not the blog post where I explain why others do not give us love the way that we are taught. Not possible. Nor is it even possible that we can love another without first loving ourselves. This position will raise a few eyebrows. I will try to write on this soon.
Now back to my premise. To make it even more unlikely you would love yourself while on earth, you were advised to experience shame at the idea of doing so. As a matter of fact, some of you clearly got the message to do the opposite of loving yourself. Hate yourself. Or atleast parts of yourself. It all adds up to the same result: a drained life force. Remember, love IS the juice of life. No juice. No life.
How many of you hate how you look? Your weight? Your job? Your family members? If hate is too strong a word, how about any of its cousins, reject, dislike, disapprove, eschew. I could go on for days with words that oppose love. It is easy since I am a human living in the third dimension. Too easy. Its a frequency that has a well worn path, a groove in our collective mindset. The neural pathway to this condition is almost unbreakable. Almost.
So here is my proposal. Decide to do everything out of love for Self. Anyone reading this is a Service to Other soul and understands that we are One. We live, and have for thousands of years as reincarnating souls under a patriarchal, Service to Self/Power over Others energetic template or framework. It has been excruciating. And at times horrifying.
Within the understanding that we are One, the quantum mechanical story tells us that what you first do for yourself as a receiver ripples then out from you as a transmitter to those around you. As you heal self, you heal Us. As you love yourself, you then love Us. As you love you, you simultaneously love me. Even if I never am lucky enough to meet you.
Sending this off highly encoded with Love in the Highest. Because I can. So I do. — Amber
