This month we have many celebrations to share: Pooja, my daughter graduated from college, got her job, Limitless Life Transformation retreat, my son Nishan’s acceptance in to the Doctor of Education in the College Teaching in Art Program at Columbia, Teacher’s College and last but not least I am celebrating my 50 years on this planet. I feel so blessed and am very grateful to the Universe.
It has been 50 wonderful years and I am feeling younger and younger as the numbers of age are moving forward. It took me 40 years to find my inner self, and my life purpose, to manifest what I want from my heart. I found the fountain of Unconditional love that existed all this time within me. It’s an amazing feeling to find this priceless treasure and we all have this treasure within us.
This past decade was filled with exploration and self-discovery, to know who I am and why I am here, what lessons I learned through my life experiences. Most of my life I was using my head and now I am manifesting from heart. I feel I am getting closer to my 18” journey, which is from the head to the heart. And we all are traveling to the same destination, but everyone is at different places at different times.
Recently I explored and learned this amazing human design blueprint. It is like a “human operating manual,” just like when we buy appliances, or technical items, they come with a user manual; this is like that. It is a human manual. It is the science of differentiation. I will be talking more about this topic during our open hour call this month and I will have a special bonus, so stay tuned….
So how do you manifest from your heart through unconditional love?
First let’s talk about what is Unconditional Love.
Unconditional Love begins in our lives with Unconditional acceptance. The first place that this is experienced in a person’s life is in the context of the relationship with one’s parents. From the first glaze and smile that is focused on the mother and father, the infant experiences the truth of what unconditional love is. It is the process that happens without benefits or impediments of language, experiences wholly through the open-heart space with which we come into this world. Unconditional Love is the divine expression of our true nature.
How do we disconnect from Unconditional Love then?
The conditions that a parent puts on the child manifests as expectations, often undermining their ability to love unconditionally. The emotional baggage carried from having the parent’s needs placed upon the child can be significant in the relationships that the child will later engage in. The conditional love children receive from parents also manifests in feelings of unworthiness and lack of self-love. Children grow up and often use the template of their parent’s love to understand future relationships.
Such experiences in childhood can lead us as adults to become distracted by our own fear and emptiness, which come from the void within us that cries for love. We then often react to others through this lens of fear and pain. We may do whatever it takes to fill this emptiness, including creating relationships for the sake of easing our pain. Relationships based on filling our emptiness through being with another can lead to behaviors such as clinging, attacking, acting like a victim, lying and running. In the desperation to fill our voids of love, we also often search for a temporary relief that feels good in the moment. Imitations of love include praise, pleasure and power through such things as sex, money, alcohol, and drugs.
Conditional love can be passed on throughout many generations. We may learn what conditional love looks and feels like and then lead our lives from this same state, conditionally loving ourselves and others. We do so because we do not know any other type of love well enough to create it in our lives. So we love ourselves, others, and the world in limited ways.
These pains remain unprocessed within us as energetic blocks which affect our emotional, mental, and physical patterns. While we were once open to life, we begin to contract toward it because of our pain. We may then become paralyzed by our past hurtful experiences and keep our hearts shut off to the world. While this is oftentimes not a conscious decision, in shutting ourselves off from pain, we also shut ourselves off from love. The blockage that come from experiencing pain set up boundaries for how much we are able to experience the energy of love. It may seem impossible to the ego to love without boundaries. How could I Love the person who raped me? How could I love those who have murdered others? This is an extremely difficult area for many of us. It is in exploring how far we can allow our hearts to expand in love that we can connect with our boundaries of love and then heal them. Where are your boundaries of love? How do you dissolve them so that you can move into unconditional love?
By making a choice to reconnect with Unconditional Love.
Everyone you meet in your life is a practice session of Unconditional Love.
There seems to be, for many, a certain point on the spiritual path when we realize that all we can do it surrender. We experience limitation, ours and others, and we feel powerless, yet we know we are capable of living a different was. Now we are ready. When we admit that the mind cannot solve this riddle, we can surrender to the heart, where our true wisdom lies. This is a very important turning point in spiritual and personal growth for many.
Surrendering to love can begin simply by saying “I surrender all to love.” This is a powerful statement.
When we decide to place our hearts above our intellect in our daily life, there is an experience of “rightness” and we know we are on to do something. When we make this choice, our heart chakra automatically begins to open up, and the shift in awareness can be instantaneous.
It can be a powerful practice to perform, a special outdoor ritual in which you commit your life to love. You can make this a ritual in which all your favorite symbols of love are combined and you affirm your love for yourself, the earth, all beings, and the spiritual realm. As you experience this, you will feel the wave of unconditional love embrace you, and you will rest in love. Let your mind be still and your heart be open, as your senses detect the eternal beauty of life in all its complexity.
You may experience being a divine lover, as you blend with all energies in creation. Listen closely for the rhythm of love as it pulses through you from heart of God. Make the choice to be a love warrior, a love radiator, loving all beings as they are, even if you do not understand them with your mind. Make the commitment to accepting yourself just as you are. Find your own unique way to make this choice. This is the path. This is the practice. Choose Love.
