Celebrate the Love You Are

“To love another person is to see the face of God” ~ Les Miserables
February is the month to celebrate love! Though I feel it is to be celebrated daily, it is a wonderful time to reflect and do something special for those we love. I usually buy a special treat for my children and make one of our favorite meals. I will also do something special for myself. Valentines is a  special time to celebrate and let those I love know how much I love them.

I have some self-reflection questions for you this Valentines.  Have you included YOU in your Valentines celebrations”? Will you be doing anything special to celebrate who you are and what you have to give others? When we give to others we are sharing a part of ourselves. Whether we give through a gift, a kind gesture, or share our affection, it is an extension of who we are. We are celebrating and sharing the love we are with others.It is also wonderful to receive from others. The perfect balance of giving and receiving allows us to feel whole and complete. It reminds us of the divine love within us that is eternally connected to God.

Self Criticism and negative thoughts create a barrier to love. Love can’t get in or out.  When we have a deep sense of self love, we can genuinely love those around us completely and without conditions. Self criticism spills over into your relationships like poison. Learning to master your self talk takes lots of practice! As you are persistent with mastering your thoughts by choosing the positive ones, the love that you are will shine brighter!

If you struggle with self criticism here are some steps to help you release them and become free:

1. Write down three negative thoughts that continue to pull you down and block you from giving and receiving more love?
2. Reflect on how long you have had these thoughts. How old were you when you started to believe them? Who did you hear them from?
3. Reflect on how these thoughts make you feel. Write down your feelings on the paper.
4 Ask yourself if the negative feelings are serving you in anyway? Then reflect on how you are being limited buy believing these negative thoughts and feelings.Are you ready to let them go?
5. Write down on a separate piece of paper what positive thoughts you want to choose to believe about yourself, about love, and who you are.
6. Destroy the paper with the negative thoughts. You can burn it, tear it up, or crumble it up and put it in the trash. Allow yourself to be aware of what you feel in your body when you do this.
7. Repeat your positive thoughts out loud ten times. Notice how your body feels when you do this.
8. Repeat this as often as needed to get rid of negative thoughts.

This is one of the most powerful tools I share with my coaching clients to help them break free from self criticism. It has been a powerful tool in my life and allows me to celebrate who I am and express who I am in the world freely. I share this with you because I know you have an infinite amount of love within you. This world needs your love! Those around you need your love! Your love  is powerful and can make this world a better place. It begins with changing YOUR WORLD through loving yourself first. So I  invite you to let go of anything that is in the way of you fully embracing the love that you are. The time is now to celebrate who you are!

Sending my love wrapped in peace and joy!

Blessings,

Loving Life

Sunday I felt a warm blanket of love and support around me, cradling me gently into a space of detachment. I could feel my thoughts disappear and my soul expand without limitations. I could feel the light within expanding, dispersing thoughts and beliefs other humans had projected onto me. There was a deep power within pulling me inward allowing me to reflect from the light within me. My inner light was beauty, glory, bliss, peace, and love. I could feel perfect beauty. I could feel the connection of light I am with all life. There was a greater awareness of connection to humanity at a deeper level than I have felt before. There was purpose for my light on earth without my mind trying to perceive or understand what it is.  My soul comprehended my purpose in such a way that I have no words to explain it. It is that glorious! My whole heart and soul was open to Christ and the glory of his love emulated through me and through everything and everyone on earth. I have often felt my light and feel and see the light in all creation, but this time the light is brighter. This time the capacity of my light, connection, and love had expanded.  Thoughts of the past had disappeared; all that was within me was the love, truth, peace, and knowledge from my experiences. These precious moments of life that allow me to feel the essence and beauty of my soul. There are my treasures from heaven, the heaven on earth within me.

The spirit that moves me in these experiences is the spirit that has moved me to create the products and services at Andreas Home Heaven on Earth. It comes from a love within me, to have those on the earth feel the love, peace and connection through God, each other, and the earth.

I share my spirit with you through my blog to honor the light that is within me and within you.  I am loving life and I would like to invite you to reflect on the experiences you are currently having in your life. You may or may not be enjoying life right now. Whatever you are experiencing, just allow yourself to be aware of your thoughts and feelings. Take time to be still and listen. Remember you do have a choice on how you think and feel. You have the power to change your life through your thoughts, emotions, and the direction of your heart. If you are loving life, then keep doing what you are doing. If not, are you ready to let go of the thoughts and feelings that get in the way of experiencing the full measure of your creation? Are there thoughts and emotions that have power over your life, that no longer serve you? Can you open your whole heart, body, and soul open to beauty of Christ’s love? Can you be willing to detach from the teachings of the world and be still to discover the truth and beauty that is within? I have taken the journey within to find beauty, love, peace, bliss, and the glory of God to experience life to the fullest. I invite you to take the journey within and access what your soul has to offer in the present moment. There are few things you can do to create that space for yourself. Some examples are to meditate, write in a journal, listen to affirmations,and spend time in nature. These are some of the ways to align yourself with God to feel connected and loved.  Try it and see what happens. You may begin to love life too!

Love and light,

Johnna Andrea Tuttle
