It’s wonderful when you get to see and feel the difference your love is making in someone’s life. It’s great to see them bask in the glow of your love. It’s fun to know you’ve put a spring in someone’s step, helped them see the best in themselves and shine their own light a little brighter.
It’s awesome when this happens, but what about the times when you give your love to another, openly, consistently, joyful and …. nothing. What then?
We don’t always get to see the difference our love makes, but that doesn’t mean it’s not making a difference.
Alice* is a body-worker. She’s been in practice for many years. A few weeks ago she told me that when she was first starting out she worked in a clinic and took whoever they gave her. There was a older woman who came to her who was grumpy all the time, and no fun to work on. There seemed to be no pleasing this woman. Even though she didn’t seem happy with the treatments she kept returning. Since Alice was new she kept working on her, even though it was unpleasant.
Then one day, before the grump arrived, Alice realized something. What this woman really needed was love. So Alice decided to love her that day. She didn’t say anything different, and she worked on her body in the same way. But as she did it she loved her. She had no good or easy reason to love this woman – she was a bitch. Alice drew from the love that was inside her already, and it was there because it’s always there. Love is what we are. By tapping into that core Alice was able to love this woman without saying a word. The session was done and the woman left.
While Alice prepped her room for another client the receptionist came in and said, “What did you do to her in here? She was an angel.”
Alice had the good fortune to hear second hand that her love had made a difference. We don’t all get that gift. So when you’re giving your love bombs and you don’t know if it’s working – TRUST.
Love is what you are, and by actively accessing that love you’re accessing the truth of who you are.
*Alice: The name isn’t real. But her love is!
Let me be clear about one thing:
The person you choose to love bomb during The 30 Day Love Explosion does NOT need to choose you!!!
I just learned that some of you want to do this but the person you chose isn’t sure about this whole whacky idea, so they don’t want to commit.
That’s perfectly fine. Love Bomb them anyway.
I never meant for this to be reciprocal, though it may be that way for some of you. The idea of this is to Pay Love Forward. You are doing this for the person you choose with nothing expected in return. You’ll find that you’re also doing it for yourself. By feeling and expressing love, you’ll experience more love in your life.
It may not come from the person you have chosen. That’s perfectly alright. You’ll be tapping into the love that is already inside you. You’ll experience more of the truth that ~ You Are Love.
Pay close attention to the person you’ll be love bombing, look for the many reasons you love them.
Also, pay attention to yourself. What do you notice about yourself, as you pay love forward? It may be wonderful. It may not all be pretty. If you can remain curious and loving with yourself it may teach you much about the person who needs your love more than anyone else – You!
If you’ve signed up for The 30 Day Love Explosion you may be thinking of a number of people you’d like to Love Bomb all month. But I strongly recommend you choose JUST ONE.
If you’re like most people you’re already being pulled in too many directions, you’ve got too much on your plate and there often aren’t enough hours in the day to do what you want to do. Hey, life is complex.
This is Simple.
Choose just one. For 30 days you’re going to be focusing your attention on that one person. And great things happen when you pay attention. You’ll be noticing the things they do and the ways they are that you really love and appreciate. You’ll be noticing how their ways make you feel, and you’ll be expressing it daily. By keeping it to one person you set yourself up for success.
You’ll be amazed at what this simple focused act will bring to your life. More on that later….
So, who you gonna choose?
