If you’ve ever wondered what the greatest gift of all is, I have the answer. It’s the gift of love, of course!
Why is this the greatest gift? Because whenever you feel love for yourself, your life, your partner, your friends, your pets, your family, or anything else that inspires feelings of love, not only do you benefit from this amazing gift, everyone around you and ALL living beings are also uplifted by the positive and healing vibration of your love.
It’s not always easy to feel appreciation and love for your life – especially if you’re going through a challenging time – but it is always possible and it is always a choice.
Dr. Wayne Dyer said: “Love is my gift to the world. I fill myself with love, and I send that love out into the world. How others treat me is their path; how I react is mine.”
I believe one of the best ways to fill ourselves with love is to intentionally live a life we love. When we are living a life we love, we feel joyful and at peace. When we’re living a life we don’t love, we feel unhappy and stressed out.
But even when outside circumstances seem to limit our ability to enjoy life, we can still tap into – and feel empowered by – the essence of life. Some of the most powerful historical figures known for their positive influence, such as Viktor Frankl and Nelson Mandela, found meaning in life even in the midst of horrible sufferings that you and I can’t even fathom.
They were able to stay aligned with their truth and focus on the gift of life. Life is a gift and YOU are a gift of life.
You are unlike any other human being and an essential note in the song of the Universe. The more you’re able to step into this truth and claim your magnificence, the more joy and love you will experience…in your life and in your relationships!
So in this holiday season of love, light and celebration, I invite you to recognize and appreciate your life as an amazing gift from the Divine (or whatever you want to call It), and fill yourself up with love.
To help you get started, it is my honor to share “Finding the Gift in All Things” by Linda Jackson (from an article in Science of Mind magazine). If you’re in a space where you can read it aloud, I highly recommend doing so:
“I turn within to the inner sanctuary – far greater within than anything in my outer world. I take a moment to center myself and sense the expansive, unlimited potential of Life. This all-good and ever-grateful nature of Life is always giving of Itself, ever becoming more and more of Itself – in, as and through me; in, as and through all living beings.
It beats my heart, It breathes my breath, and It prays this prayer. I have come to know this Life Source energy as the Life of God living through me. It is the truth of who I am.
Knowing that all God is, I am – I know unlimited gratitude as the essence of my being. There is infinite source and supply, infinite possibility, unlimited opportunity right here within.
All the right ideas and all the right resources are here now. I know that all my needs are met. My heart expands with gratitude, as I overflow with the abundance and the goodness of Life itself.
I am sourced, I am prosperous, I am in overflow and I am grateful. As I cultivate this attitude of gratitude, it becomes an exponential experience of itself. It multiplies, rippling out and expanding upon itself. The more gratitude I express, the more good I experience. And the more good I experience, the more grateful I feel. More and more gratitude, more and more good. More and more gratitude, more and more good.
I sit in appreciation of this high vibration of gratitude and the multiplying of good in my life. I am grateful that the speaking of this prayer has aligned me with my Truth. I say yes to It and let It have its way with me. And with a grateful heart, I release these words into the Law that always says yes. I let it be so, and so it is.”
Isn’t that powerful?!! Every time I read it, I am moved by its inspiration. I can’t help but feel love for my life as the beautiful gift it is, and I want the same for you.
Why? Because I believe this is our Universal purpose…to live a life we love and then share that love with others in whatever way comes naturally through our personalized expression of love. The more you love and celebrate your life, the greater your life and the lives around you will become!
If you’re currently going through a challenging phase in your life, the idea of loving and celebrating it may not sound so doable, but please remember…this too shall pass. And know that learning how to transform old painful patterns into new empowering patterns will allow you the ease and freedom to embrace the amazing life that is waiting for YOU.
You have the power of love within you, and it’s the greatest gift of all! It’s up to you to allow yourself to receive it, fill yourself up and share that love with the world.
