Love

Reading at the Soulful Living site this morning I found this: by Judith Orloff, M.D Love creates an irresistible charisma, a warm glow that makes us and others happy. You can send it in any situation, a nurturing that won’t drain us. How? Focus on your heart center, and envision something you love. A flock of seagulls. Your son’s smile. A blooming rose. Then, during a conversation, inwardly ask, “Let love flow through me.” Feel it rise from your chest; notice a sense of heat, serenity, a radiance. These vibes move outward. People soften around them, feel safe, want more.

There is a lot more to the article but I really enjoyed and took in this part. Sometimes it is easy for me to get caught up in the emotions of the day, feeling hurried, maybe grumpy sometimes. But I think this hits the spot with how I feel about the Law of Attraction and how "I" can influence interactions, relationships, connections. I really think I need to work on this one point more. Focusing on my feelings and bringing love to any situation from an internal perspective. Not just "being nice" but feeling love and emanating love can change things.

This is very interesting.. I too delve into these sorts of things, and it's when they move from concept to practice to reality that is so profound. For me, this hit home when I was grieving for the loss of my father. I realized I was doing all the same things but without the usual rush-rush, without the typical raised anxiety, and almost without consciousness I was giving out vibes of love and extreme tolerance and healing connection because that's what I was so desperately needing the world to be filled with during that time! When it all became more cerebral, later, I realized how profound that was - and how much I learned about the choices we make when we live in those grumpy, rushed, frazzled places.

Cool stuff. Thanks for spreading it around!

Thanks for posting this excerpt. Dr. Judith Orloff does have a way with words. I just finished her book Second Sight and found it mesmerizing.
