Sweetness Of Life

Recently I pondered, “What brings sweetness to my life?” The answer I received was, “Love.”

The message was more than about my inner worth or my relationships. It was about putting my heart and soul in the endeavors I undertake or experiences that come my way.

Next, I questioned, “How do I create more love and passion in my life for all I do?” Here are some of the ideas that flowed for my unfolding.

Whenever we take on something, a project, a job, organizing a closet, we feel some stirring in us. We may not recognize it as love, yet, the inner stirring to move in this direction is what I am calling sweetness of life. When we allow awareness of this level of tuning in to ourselves, we move beyond challenges in our lives, with finances, health, relationships, or jobs. These responsibilities move to a less urgent place.

Possibilities open up and inner healing is available when we are in the flow of the sweetness of life. In an instant, life's past can be transformed.

If you are stuck and need a nudge, you might need to lean on another. Create a list of several people who care about you, whom you will call or email when you need help beyond helping yourself. Even making this list can potentially give a boost because we forget sometimes that we carry love with us from these friendships and close relationships. I am a fan of therapy, joining a group, taking a class, and on-line help as well.

Here is a process I use often to refresh myself

1. Breathe as deep and soften or close your eyes.

2. Notice thoughts going on in your mind without judgments.

3. Let the thoughts come and go; do not pay attention to them as you relax and clear your mind.

4. Chose an intention for the day

5. Image already experiencing this intention; feel it strongly.

6. Allow resistance or only holding the intention briefly.

7. Keep breathing deeply as you open your eyes.

8. Smile to yourself.

Writing can also intensify the inner experience and help you feel it. Every time you feel the sweetness of the intention and feeling as if it is already true, you deliver a positive message through your neurons to your brain. Each intention sets you in motion to move forward to manifest it.
