Acts of Love

FOR YOURSELF

We usually think acts of love involve doing something for another. Before one can give love to another, one must love oneself; you cannot give to another what you do not have for yourself. If you are a caretaker or an empath, it is even more important to care of yourself first. Here are some suggestions:

Laughing at yourself or something you did. This takes you into a higher vibration and a much better alternative to sadness or being down.

Cleaning things out and getting rid of the old. This also lightens up and expands your energy.

Being in nature. Take a walk, sit on a hillside or explore a new place away from your hectic life. Watch and listen to nature; it can teach you how to live and it also assists in clearing your negativity. It’s a great reset.

Letting your inner child play. Whether it is playing in the sand, painting or whatever else your inner child likes to do. Ask your inner child what he/she would enjoy doing with you.

When you show love for yourself through action on a regular basis, you may find that other areas of life flow more and life’s problems aren’t as big as they seem.

Wishing you love, joy and peace in your life, Mary

Love Is Across the Dimensions

WHAT IS LOVE?

Third dimensional love usually refers to emotions or affection for another. A fifth dimensional love is one of love for each other and humanity; creating and co-creating in and with love in community. From there it becomes love for God, the Universe or whatever you choose to call your power source.

This three-part series introduces the reader to the various levels of love as humanity is choosing to change this world of duality. Third dimension no longer works for everyone; people are choosing to change it to something better than. This new world is all about a new kind of love.

THIRD DIMENSIONAL LOVE

Third dimension on planet Earth is one of free will and free choice. You can choose how you want to learn your lessons. At this level, one often chooses to learn love through a relationship with another. For some, it is a very caring and affectionate relationship. It may even be a very intense, emotional relationship. Many years ago a co-worker spoke about how much she loved her husband and missed him so much she could not wait to go home after work. It was all she could talk about.

Love can be perceived in many ways. The birth of a child can bring a strong emotional bond or relationship. Our pets can also be a vehicle for experiencing love, just as our friends and family can.

For some individuals, they choose to experience an abusive relationship. They may have come into this life with a victim archetype from a previous lifetime. It might be that one grew up with the abuse by a parent and related the abuse with love from the parent. From there, the individual may seek a relationship which is also abusive. Abuse can be mental, emotional or physical.

Why would someone want to learn love through an abusive relationship? Third dimension is one of duality which allows one to learn lessons faster than elsewhere. Learning what you are not allows you to make a better choice. Often times people do not know what they want or may not have ever experienced love.

DISCOVERING LOVE

Others cannot give us what we do not have for ourselves. We must first find our own love. Where do we find our love? Love comes from within. We contain the love and light that we seek. It is found within and without and all around us.

One method is to think of a time when you really felt love, even if for only a moment. It could be from when you first saw your child after birth, from a spouse, a family member or from a pet. Focus on that inner feeling. Practice this and try holding the feeling for a longer period of time until you can call the inner feeling forward to replace unsupportive thoughts. You can also use it in uncomfortable situations. You are really remembering the love for yourself and bringing it forward.

Another method is meditating on the warm, fuzzy place in the center of your chest−the heart which is a hub from which all roads lead. Creating with a one-point focus is also a meditation. This would include various forms of art; such as painting, drawing, sculpting, writing or any other form of creating.

LOVING YOURSELF UNCONDITIONALLY

How do you determine whether you love yourself unconditionally just as you are? Recognize or be aware it is not the other person or the outside world which gives you love. They are just bringing the love you have within forward for its internal recognition. You cannot share with another what you do not have for yourself. You can only receive from another a level of love that you have for yourself. This is the path that calls to you and to all who seek. It is the path of love. Love for self unconditionally is where you need to be to make the shift as Earth and its residents move into the fifth dimension.

Love heals all things. Love is the ultimate path. It removes all else along the way. It rises up to meet that which is less than and keeps it at bay. Love for another can be very powerful. All humans at one time or another experience it. For some, it may only be fleeting moments, but it is there to remind you who you are. All is love. All of you come from love and return to love. It is your nature. It is the nature of all beings and all consciousness. Archangel Michael
