Creating Loving Feelings

I Have Loved

All Love We Feel Comes from Within Us. If We have Ever Loved – Anybody or Anything, We Can Recreate those Loving Feelings. Whatever love we have ever felt – whether for a child, lover, family member, or a pet – or anything that evoked a sense of love within us like our home, a walk, our garden, art, music, the sunset, or the exhilaration of a sport – the feeling came from within us, even though it was activated by something outside of us. If we have ever felt a deep sense of contentment – this feeling also came from within us, even though it may have been activated by outside circumstances that caused us to feel satisfied. If We Have Ever Felt Love Activated by Externals, We Can Feel Love from Within Our Self Some people actually live life feeling love all the time. However, for most of us, it is triggered by someone, something, or from a fond memory. Still, knowing/remembering that we have loved – that we have the capacity to feel love is a great comfort. Lately, it has been for me. To keep emotionally above board throughout the pandemic I upped my meditations practices. And since I use mostly guided meditations (I’m simply too hyper to meditate quietly on my own; I need assistance to get me in a quiet state 😊), I have discovered some new ones. One of these has been Louise Hay’s morning meditation, which focuses mainly on appreciation. About halfway through the 25 minutes, we are asked to spend a few minutes appreciating the people, things, and experiences we now have, or have had, in our life. Here is the link to Louise's meditation. (These blog posts are all based on my books. About My Books and purchase info is found here  (a list of my books is at the end) I am also a copywriter and offer writing services. About my Writing Services see here) Over time, my appreciation turned into remembering fondly; then it turned into really feeling the love for what I have, or have had – for people, things, and experiences in my life that brings or has brought me joy. At some point, I realized that I Have Really Loved – and have gotten pleasure from so much in my life. I LOVED having children – the fun of it all; I no longer remember any of the hard parts. I have loved my homes. I loved my dance classes, and I still love to dance. I love to paint. I have loved hopping on my bicycle at the end of the day and driving along the Lakeshore. Cooking for my family and hosting family/friend gatherings has always brought me great pleasure. I have loved all my gardens – creating them and enjoying them, and I now love my balcony and window boxes. I love waking up in the morning and looking out the window – whether rainy, cloudy, or sunny. Sitting in my solarium in [...]

Creating Loving Feelings – Expanded Version

2022-02-15T04:35:12+00:00

  So pleased to be able to say that this essay I submitted to the Love Foundation for their May 2020 Global Love Day Received an Honorable Mention. (You can read it all here on this blog page, or Here on The Love Foundation's website. It is an expanded version of a previous blog post of the same name.) Creating Loving Feelings Most of us aspire to be positive and express love out into the world. However, sometimes we simply cannot feel love in our heart, at least not enough to be loving towards others. We were intended to live connected to love, effortlessly tapping into joy, and naturally able to express love outwards into the world. Eons ago, we could. However, at some point in history, negativity arose, and as this played out, our connection to joy and loving feelings inadvertently became weakened. Many of us were victims of and/or inherited these ways of being from past generations, and so our connection to loving feelings may be weak, or even blocked. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This article/blog post is based in concepts from my books “Your Journey to Peace … “ About Book  here  and “Why We Are the Way We Are”  About Book  here (Book cover images at end) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ We now know that light, positive, uplifting high-vibrational thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors create feelings of general well-being. They burst through any weakness or blocks we may have to loving feelings. They send sparks of light and love to our whole being. This allows us to reconnect to loving feelings. The more we embrace high-vibrational thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors, the better we feel. The better we feel, the more easily we can express love out into the world. For those of us who cannot easily tap into joy or loving feelings, we can conjure them up. Creating Loving Feelings We create loving feelings by passionately evoking loving feelings with our thoughts, words, attitudes, and behaviors. Doing so with gusto, relishing, delighting in, reveling in, and with exaggerated feelings gets the ball rolling. We are attempting to override years, generations, and even eons of our feelings of love being dulled and subdued, so we must approach this with enthusiasm. Hug yourself or your pillow. Create a practice by summoning up love feelings as if you were hugging a baby, your child, your most precious loved one, a cute kitten, or whatever will create pure, unabashed childlike pleasure within you. This creates love feelings within your being, which you can later connect to more easily. Embrace joy and light-heartedness. Regularly do what brings you joy. Bring fun and light-heartedness to whatever you do, as this creates a sense of joy around it, anchoring joy into your being. Joy then becomes part of your make-up. Be passionate and bring abandon to all you do. Being passionate and bringing abandon to whatever you are doing creates a positive vortex around it. This makes every-day tasks pleasurable. The mundane starts to feel extraordinary. Life starts to feel extraordinary. Delight [...]

When you allow yourself to delight in the small things in life, like the bubbles in the sink, spring’s first bloom, or a baby’s smile, you are evoking loving feelings. This creates a sort of love muscle memory, and you will automatically start to feel sparks of joy and loving feelings in small things, each time strengthening your connection to love. Allow for wonder and awe. Whenever possible, embrace what creates wonder and awe in your being. Whether it be the sky and [...]
