“The conclusion is always the same; love is the most powerful and still the most unknown energy in the world.” – Teilhard de Chardin
“Love heals all wounds”. I am beginning to truly believe that statement. Justifying our anger or allowing our ego to control us is not healing, it is and will always be love that heals our wounds.
Love, the great mystery of love, romantic love, motherly love, the magic of love, there are so many forms of love. Love is the province of life, in which we all participate in various ways.
We all emerge from our childhood experiences with a longing to be loved. Some more than others, depending on how you were taught to love. Love wounds are not just restricted to the broken-hearted or love struck. They are deep wounds from the beginning of birth for some and when we have been hurt over a long time, we start to build barriers around our heart to protect it.
The dilemma is that love requires us to be present and vulnerable and this can be very difficult for those who have been hurt. For it is often when we are vulnerable that our wounds begin. In order to break down the barriers we have built within us, we have to learn to trust others again and let others in.
“The strongest love is the love that can demonstrate its fragility.” – Paulo Coelho
Start by being kind and attentive to yourself. When we nurture, love and accept ourselves, it will help begin to dissolve the barriers we have built. If we continue to hold onto our pain and past hurts, we cannot receive the gift of love and abundance that we deserve. We need to forgive, let go and allow.
“To share your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable; to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength.”
If you feel that you are not loved, if you feel you are not appreciated, or that you do not deserve to be nurtured, then become conscious of your thoughts coming in and going out. What is it, from your past that is stopping you from receiving the love you belong to.
Seek out those who are experienced in helping you let go of past wounds and pain and open your heart to receive the abundant love waiting for you to receive.
“I love you, not only for what you are but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me, that you bring out.”
You are more than you think you are. You are more than you believe. When you believe you are love, when you believe there is only love, you can heal.
