I’m sure that most of you, if not all of you reading this article know that love feels good, so much better than fear. And I imagine you know that there are only two emotions in the world – love and fear. Every feeling we experience originates from these two emotions. Both are powerful and steer your life according to the foundation upon which you build each thought and word – from love or fear.

Love expresses as compassion, understanding, appreciation, acceptance, forgiveness, abundance, peace, harmony, caring, commitment, expansion, freedom, magnificence, empowerment and joy, whereas fear expresses as anger, jealousy, criticism, judgment, lack, discord, unhappiness, procrastination, low self-worth, confinement, smallness, retaliation, guilt, hurt, blame and shame. It is obvious which expressions are more favorable and which ones you would rather experience.

You probably also know that whatever you send out every day – the energetic vibrations of your thoughts and actions – is what comes back to you many times over in the experiences of your life. Anger begets anger; judgment begets judgment. It’s a scientific fact that you cannot change the energy midstream and receive positive results from fear-based thinking. However, if you change your original base of thinking into positive thoughts from love, you can then shift your entire outcome into something good.

I know you’ve heard this many times before, but have you listened to it and accepted it as a truth? You may have great head knowledge and can spit out the perfect words that tell others you’ve got it, but do you really get it? Is the inner knowing of love-based thinking and actions really a core in your being so that everything you say and do has a root in love?

Some years ago as I was searching for the perfect decorator items for the opening of Where Miracles Happen Quantum Healing & Empowerment Center, I came across the words in the title of this article. It was scripted on a framed piece of art with the background the exact colors in the center. It was an instant internal knowing that this was something I had to purchase because the words were exactly the basis of everything the center stands for. I placed it in our downstairs restroom where individuals could see it as they washed their hands. Many people commented on what a great piece this is.

So let’s dig into this thought for a moment. Every thought you think is made of energy, and once that energy is formed, it continues to circulate around the universe picking up more of the same energy; it is constantly in motion and never dies. So if you’re thinking hateful thoughts about someone, maybe in the form of anger, that energy spins out from you and gathers all kinds of other angry thoughts, getting larger and larger in the process. Pretty soon there is a massive energy vortex of anger circulating around you and all the other beings with those thoughts. It will hover over you like a huge cloud of darkness because anger is dark energy based in fear.

On the other hand, if you are sending blessings to people and appreciating the individuals in your life, and thinking how blessed you are, you will radiate that energy out to the universe and it will attract more of the same energy of blessings and appreciation. It also will grow larger and larger as it collects the same energy and it will create a massive halo over you of light and goodness. So which would you prefer hanging over your head?

I feel sure you’d rather have love hanging over you than fear, but perhaps you find it hard to feel love

or be love. In order to receive love you have to give love, so how do you do this in such a fear-based world?

It requires a big shift on your part, shifting you from negative thoughts to positive thoughts. It’s not an easy task since you’ve been programmed from fear all of your life, making much of your foundation negative. So the key for you is to step out of that old programming and create something new.

Your first step will be to pay attention to what you are saying, because your words were first thoughts, and your thinking is where the change has to take place. Listen to what you think about all day. Think about the words you speak. Are they thoughts and words that are loving, or are you judging, gossiping, criticizing, complaining, and feeling frustrated throughout your day? Here is your point of origin, for in order to change your life from fear-based to love-based, you have to change your thinking.

Like so many things, being able to give love is an internal job. Love isn’t about doing or saying; it’s about being. You cannot give what you do not have. So in order to give love, you have to be love. How can you be love?

You must love yourself before all else. Remember, you cannot give what you do not have! So in order to give love you must love yourself unconditionally just as you are. But many individuals don’t feel too good about themselves and suffer from low self-worth, something taught them through their programming, the “not enough syndrome” of: not good enough, not smart enough, not pretty enough, not wealthy enough; not able enough. So you find it difficult to value yourself or even love yourself because you feel defective.

However, every one of you is a priceless, unique, one-of-a-kind masterpiece worthy of all good. All of you are part of the same energy of the universe and were created from the essence of love. Love is your birthright and what you are made of, but when entering this world it is forgotten, and fear reigns.
Your task then is to return to your essence of love and create a life from that base, accepting your inborn power to create what you want and be the love. It will mean you must let go of all the old programming that says you are defective and have limits so that you can remember the love from whence you came.

How can you love yourself? Accept yourself as a perfect specimen of creation, born with the power to create the life you want. Appreciate who you are and all the gifts inside of you. Operate your life from a base of gratitude for everything, even the challenges. Practice forgiveness. Flow with life and whatever it brings you; quit resisting. Look for the opportunities in any challenge. Always help others.

Who do you gravitate to – the person with a scowl on their face and daggers darting from their eyes, or the individual who is smiling at you with sparkling, inviting eyes? Your answer is obvious. So it’s up to you to become the person wearing a beautiful, inviting smile that emanates from a heart filled with love. By being this individual, you can then attract the same unto you. Love is the only thing that ever heals, and it’s who you truly are in the first place.

If the harvest you dream of gathering for your life includes all the expressions of love, then begin today, right now, to shift your entire internal dialogue from a negative fear-based mindset to a positive, filled-with-love thinking. As you do this, you will gather the most amazing harvest of love!
