"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." -Rumi
I built a protective barrier against love after I experienced a traumatic loss of loved one when I was a teenager. Back then I believed that love causes pain. I built this barrier to protect my heart, but it also prevented me to really give and receive love. Once I started doing inner work, I realized that Love doesn't cause pain and found the courage to take down that barrier brick by brick...
Now I want to share with you three essential steps towards abundance of Love. I have listed a couple of questions that can help you to establish what's blocking you..
1. HEALING THE PAST
When you think about your past relationships, what comes to your mind? Sadness? Anger? If we don’t take time to heal the past, we will bring the ghost of the past relationship to our new relationship. Each person and each relationship in our life teach us something, aim to find out what your past relationships taught you. This might help you to release the emotional charge and you can slowly move towards gratitude.
When you look yourself in the mirror, what do you see? What do you tell yourself? Be aware of the language you use when you talk to yourself. Open the door to kindness and start treating yourself lovingly. Give yourself a gift of Love! Start seeing your unique beauty, your light and your big heart that has enormous capacity to love! Once we love ourselves, we start glowing and we start attracting love. Let’s make the Year 2015 of Your Self-Love!
Can you see yourself in a loving relationship? What would you do together with your partner? Start building the image of your ideal relationship and start preparing yourself to share your life with a partner. If negativity or fear come up (for example my partner will leave me), just acknowledge those thoughts and write them down. These are just thoughts and they can be changed, if you choose to work on and resolve them.
I believe that it’s possible to everyone to find Love in this life. If we are ready to do the inner work, we can truly open our hearts for Love. Believe in Love and Love will believe in you!
