How to Give Love to You, and Receive it! (You Deserve It.)

Give Love to You — and Receive it! You Deserve It.

Hi everyone. Happy April, and Happy Spring! In this post, I want to talk about appreciating and giving love to yourself, so take a moment and get ready to receive some love. There are two aspects to giving love to yourself. One is giving, and the other is receiving. Now you can try to give love to yourself, think positive thoughts, write out affirmations and all of that, but if you don’t take time to receive that love that you’re generating and giving to yourself, then it’s not going to quite click.

There are different ways to stop and really receive love, and it’s not linear. You don’t have to give yourself love before you receive the love because it’s already there and present. There is nothing you to need to do in order to experience love. There is a lot of love available to us from the divine, and from the people around us that we just need to allow ourselves to receive. It’s already there. Many spiritual teachers will say that love is in fact our nature. There are different ways you can receive the love that is available to you, and it’s going to be different for everybody.

I would encourage you to take some time to think about what gets you into a mode where you can really easily receive love. Think about your past experiences and when in the past you might have experienced being really, really loved. What happened right before that and right after that? How did you allow yourself to get into that mode where you were able to receive that love?

One technique that is good to try is breathing. Just stop and take some deep breaths, and feel in the center of your chest where your heart chakra lives. This is where your heart energy has its home. Think about people that you love in your life. Think about people that you know love you even if you don’t feel like they love your right now, or you maybe have a story about them and about their love for you.

Think of somebody who you know loves you. Just think about the fact that this person really loves you. And it could be yourself. Think about the fact that you have tried and tried if you’ve been on this journey of self-love for a while. Think about the fact that you have come again and again to put in an effort to loving yourself, and just sit and feel the warmth of that. Feel the joy of that.

Recognize that when it comes down to it, none of us are isolated. No one is a single unit. We’re all connected, so by giving yourself love, you are putting more love into the system. If you’re having trouble loving yourself because maybe you’re in a self-sabotaging pattern or things aren’t going the way you want them to — whatever those blocks may be — just remember that you’re part of a whole system.

Think of someone that it is really easy for you to love. Maybe it can be a child or a pet. Just focus on that being who is so easy to love right now. Feel the sensations that occur in your body when you think about loving this being.Now recognize that you are not separate or disconnected from that being. You have your own entity and your own energy, but you are always innately connected. Think about the fact that if you experience more self-love, that being is also going to benefit from that. As a parent or any kind of caretaker, this is really obvious because when you feel energized and good, you have more to give to this one that you love that you’re taking care of. Just remember that and let that strengthen your belief that you deserve that love. You deserve that care. You deserve to take the time for yourself that you really need.

Go ahead and bring to mind something that you really need right now. Just imagine what it would be like to give that to yourself. Make it something that you can give to yourself, not something like, “I need this person to stop doing that, or to do something differently.” Look deeper. Maybe what you really need is peace or acceptance. Breathe into that for a few moments.

I’m going to close out this month’s post with a song that I just made up. You can listen along here, and follow the lyrics here:

There’s a fire burning in my soul
And I am gonna let it go
And light my way

There’s a fire burning in my heart
And I am gonna let it start
And light my way

There’s a fire burning in my soul
And I am gonna let it go
And light my way

There’s a river rolling in my soul
And I am gonna let it go
And clear my way

There’s a river flowing through my heart
And I am gonna be a part
And find my flow
And find my flow

There’s a river flowing in my heart
And I am gonna be a part
And find my flow

And the ground is here beneath my feet
The air is flowing, there’s a breeze
And I am gonna meet it now
And let it move me
And let it move me
