When our wanting feels like not wanting…and we don’t do what we want to do.
When we don’t feel like doing that which we know will be good for us.
When you start eating exactly what you want in life: the resistance will decrease.
This is a giant block of whatever is most difficult for you to carry & trust me on this, you’ll carry it more times than you can count until you decide that’s exactly what you want to do most & then it won’t weigh a thing anymore.
We all have our own limits of how we give and receive love. We have our programs and systems, and ways of blocking love in our lives.
We don’t let love in, even when it’s staring at us.
We all want more love…so the question becomes, how do we get it?
We start eating it!
Ask yourself, What is the loving thing to do for my life? Take some time to digest the reality of your current life experience. What does your life look like? What do you want it to look like?
What if we took more responsibility to have more love in our lives? What would be the loving thing to do for our body? Our financial health, our relationships, and our future? Whatever the answer, start eating on that.
Be forwarned, you won’t feel like doing the loving thing. It won’t taste good at first.
Why? because we have to change the old system (patterns, defenses, behaviors), and change takes energy. The new system will not feel comfortable, it will not feel normal, and it’s not going to (until it does), because it’s new.
And most of us are afraid to let love in! such madness we create for ourselves.
We change our body system, our financial system, life system, and relationships by loving them a little everyday. We allow more love to be present in our lives by engaging in exactly what we want.
Take your time. It can be a slow process. Eat a little love everyday until it starts to taste good. Continue to eat, to engage, to lean in, until it’s your new normal.
It comes down to which type of discomfort you want to live with –
1. The discomfort of carrying around the giant block.
2. The discomfort of starting to eat more love.
Which do you choose? and the latter eventually feels amazing…just sayin’
Happy New Year!
