Day 4 – Feeling Love

Today is day 4 of our 21 Day Happy Adventure together! Please join us any time. You can read more information in the first blog post here.

Every day I plan on meditating and using a new Close to My Heart stamp set.

Wild About Love
Today I used the February CTMH stamp set called “Wild About Love.” I thought it was appropriate since our meditation today was about feeling love. The colors used in the sample are “Cotton Candy” and “Gypsy.”

I was having fun playing with some different techniques to see which one I liked best. Below I stamped different versions with some heat embossing powders.

During meditation today we learned the path to happiness is best accomplished by releasing preconceived notions of love. Instead of thinking of love in terms of something we “seek,” we can shift our concept of love to something we “are.” Instead of wanting and searching for love outside ourselves, we can simply make a paradigm shift to understand that “we are love.”

Deepak teaches us that once we are able to discover that love is the core of our true self, then we can transform “I want love” into “I am love.” This is something that can never be taken away from us. As our  awareness expands, we can begin to recognize that we are connected to everything.

Our centering thought for today is: I am Love

I am Love Centering Thought
What a liberating concept to know that I don’t need to continually seek out love that simply put… “I am love.” I haven’t quite captured this awareness in my heart yet but it was liberating to meditate on it and try my best to comprehend it. Personally, I have always thought of love in terms of:

  • How can I love myself?
  • How can I love someone else?
  • How can I make someone else love me?

The journal prompt today invited us to think about how this shift could change the way we relate to other people. I think that this new way of thinking  could move me away from my need for giving and receiving love into a more open concept of simply “being” love. This frees me up to radiate love more openly.
