Are You Choosing Love

Love Lights Our Darkest Nights.

In each of our lives, we will experience love through something.  It can be through another individual, a career, a pet the sky is the limit.  The famous phrase “love is blind” focuses on the fact that when you love unconditionally, negativity soars right past you.  Love allows you to only see the good in something outside of the flaws that may be more upfront.  While we can focus on the negatives that come from being that open, the positives are what the purpose of life encompasses.

What Are The Positives?

Unconditional love works wonders when it’s reciprocated between two parties.  When both parties are open and able to say to themselves “My body speaks my mind, my body is a reflection of my mind, my relationships are an expression of my mind, my behaviors are a reflection of my mind.”

Choose Love In The Face Of Fear

Love works subconsciously when it’s genuine and done right.  Our body acts as a showcase of love for us through all facets, even when we’re not paying attention.  Think about a time where you have been hurt, down low, and felt the feeling of being alone.  When it was time for you to emerge from the darkness, your walls weren’t completely down.  Your subconscious mind mentally and emotionally protected you from certain things that could bring you that same heartache.

Now regardless of if the heartache were to occur again, you were never intentionally trying to give yourself these emotions, the love for yourself subconsciously built those walls to enforce protection and self-worth.  Love can be a scary thing, but it’s the right thing to do in the face of fear.

“More than anything, above all, and in the very first instance, choosing love has to do with loving the self and because of this love having developed the firm inner conviction that you can deal with any of the cards that life throws you.” –Gabriella Kortsch, Ph.D.

Action Items

  • When you face a battle, ask yourself – am I choosing love?
  • Prepare yourself mentally by providing self-awareness to your being.  Are you your best self?  Are you acting on emotion and not out of love?
  • When in doubt, trust your body.  Breathe and shut off your mind.  Align your spirit with your body and heart.  What does your body tell you to do once you’ve come to peace with yourself?

Let Go Into Your Heart or Be Dragged By Your Mind


Let go into your heart or be dragged by your mind. Right now, the ability to find contentment within anxiety, confidence in moments of uncertainty, and abundance amongst scarcity already lives within your heart. To let go into your heart you must first trust its wisdom. The ability to feel the colors of the rainbow, see the musical patterns of a song, or hear the whispering passion of a fragrance is only one heartbeat away.

Did you know that your heart didn’t begin to develop until the 21st or 22nd day after conception? To be able to support the massive undertaking of forming your entire body in 9 months time, your heart directed – and continues to this day – the pumping of oxygen rich blood and nutrients to all of its tissues and carries away carbon dioxide and waste products.

To carry out this miraculous orchestration, your heart must first provide life support for itself. It does this through specialized blood vessels called the coronary vessels. The coronary blood vessels form in order to supply blood to and from the heart itself. The coronary blood vessels are the heart’s way of emotionally reflecting that if we desire to give love or be loved we must first begin with self-love.

Self-love is the secret sauce and by far the most powerful healing energy in the Universe. Make a commitment to yourself today to own your power by loving who you are and where you are right now. Even though you may not be exactly where or who you want to be – like the coronary blood vessels to the heart – nurture and nourish yourself first. You’re exactly where you’re supposed to be. Make the decision and courageously let go into your heart one step at a time.

Say it like you mean it, “I am letting go into my heart feeling the power of self-love!

Keep shining bright!

With Infinite Love & Gratitude~
