We have all heard that saying in the spiritual community, “Give and send love”. Even though I’m spiritual I don’t really find myself fitting into that community and some ideas are hard to process. Giving love felt a bit fake to me especially if I was upset or felt really hurt by someone. Tonight, I found some understanding in the process of giving and sending someone love.
Sending love seemed like a farfetched idea. If I just send that person love all the pain would disappear? Ummm no! The thought of not dealing with the repressed issues made me even angrier and so I couldn’t just send them love. I would need to connect back to myself and show myself self-respect and understand why I allowed the situation to occur to begin with, but tonight something shifted and I needed a solution a bit sooner then diving deep into the emotions of it all.
I was feeling very disconnected to a very important relationship in my life. I thought to myself, how can I find connection or love if this person shuts down or is closed off due to their own personal fears, its just exhausting (I get it being human is super hard!!). So as I sat with this feeling, I realized my only option was to send them love. Woohh what?? Send them love? Let’s be real I call myself a “life and spiritual coach” because I question and have to make sense of everything. So there I was, ready to send love. I thought about how I could give this person the understanding that they are not alone, that I want to validate their experience and show them support. So I grabbed my journal, sat in my meditative space and wrote them a love letter. In the letter I made sure to express my unconditional love and validate their experiences.
Wow what a release I felt! I felt alive and in control of the feelings. Here’s the deeper understanding, if everyone is a reflection of me then those letters are to me as well. Vibration speaks loud and heals more then we understand. Sometimes it is in the silence that we can deepen our love.
So, I guess send love, but send love to those aspects of you that need awakening and healing. As for the person I sent love to, I know they felt my silent touch of love.
May love and light guide you home.
