“Life is Short. Kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly.” –Paulo Coelho
This is a powerful quote from a great author, but what if you feel that love is missing from your life?
Are you waiting for some great love to show up at your door, hoping your significant other will change so that you can experience more love, or relying on someone else to make you happy?
If so, you may be missing a key point that is blocking love from your life. You’re giving all of your creative power away to some outside person or circumstance. It’s time to take back your inner power and create more love in your life. This article will not only help you improve your current relationships, but it will also help you create new, more fulfilling ones too.
Let me ask another question to make a point: If you are feeling angry, bitter, lonely, needy, unlovable, unattractive, etc., would you want to hang out with yourself? Probably not.
What you feel inside creates your life around you. Instead of waiting for others to make you happy, you must become a happy person—then, happy people will flow into your life. If you want to go more in-depth on this subject, I write all about this in great detail in my latest best-selling book, Stressless Success: The Surprising Secrets to a Life of Passion, Purpose, and Prosperity.
In its most simple terms, this concept is similar to the sixth sense you can have about someone. If someone is warm and joyful, you sense it and want to be around them. If someone is angry or frustrated, you run for the hills. They don’t even have to say anything; you can just feel it.
In my book, I proceed to explain that the energy you give off from your feelings affects everything in your life around you. It’s not just your mind, or your thoughts — as everyone else teaches — it’s your mood. This understanding is far more powerful and effective because you can continue to try to force a positive thought about something you’re unhappy with, but if you’re not feeling positive, then those forced thoughts can be harmful instead of helpful.
The key, then, is to create good feelings within you. When you learn to do this no matter what is happening around you, you begin to create more reasons to feel good in your life.
1. Whether you are in a relationship or not, notice if you are focusing on all that is wrong or all that is right. Depending on which you choose, this can completely improve or implode your relationship. If you’re not in a relationship right now, are you focusing on the lack of one or focusing on all of the incredible things you do have in your life?
2. Cultivate more feelings of love from inside of you. Begin to fall in love with yourself and your life. Appreciate all of your wonderful qualities and be thankful for every inch of you. You are created by your creator and therefore, are incredibly interesting and beautiful. Begin to love everything about yourself unconditionally and bring the warmth of love into any area that you feel needs it most.
3. Know that you are loved unconditionally and never alone. You are a child of God, or whatever you believe in. Your creator loves you more than you will ever know. Your soul or higher self—whatever you want to call it—loves you unconditionally and is with you always. Tap into that energy and reconnect with that wiser, eternal, peaceful, all-loving part of you. Allow your true inner being to become your best friend and significant other. As Esther Hicks once said, “If you want to attract your soul mate, you must first mate with your soul.”
4. Open your heart and begin to send feelings of energy and love out into the world. Take the time to do something that you love every day. Love the life that you are living by putting extra love into everything you do. This idea comes from my Accelerated High Performance Success Coaching program, where I help my clients live with more purpose and passion at all stages of their lives. Know that what you give out, you get back. So, if you want more love in your world, then put more love out into the world.
You deserve great experiences and great companions in your life. Crowd out the energy of lack, and instead, cultivate an energy of wholeness and fulfillment from within. Become love and radiate the energy of love. The more amazing you begin to feel, the more you will want to share your love with others.
Every day is a fresh new day.
