In early 2015, I attended a Sacred Esoteric Healing Level 3 workshop presented by Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. I have attended this workshop many times before and every time I gain enormously and learn a lot.
At one point we looked at how each of us would express “I love you”. It was presented that for many of us it is not a natural thing to express it in the form of only speaking the three words “I love you”, but we do so because we grow up learning this is what is expected and needed from friends and family to say it in that way.
Because it is not our naturally complete form of expression, even when we speak the words our loved ones do not receive all the love and feelings we are wanting to truly communicate to them, the three words are essentially only expressing or capturing a part of what our whole body is otherwise wanting to express from deeper within. In another example, often we can express our love in a gesture or simple action, instead of words, and our partners don’t recognise it, as they are looking to hear it or see it in a way they have been conditioned to receive it, and so, love-expressions can be missed or misunderstood.
It is very joyful to feel and acknowledge the many beautiful ways we can share and receive love with others.
This morning I was on my daily walk with my gorgeous husband Christoph when it started to rain. I was feeling a little tired and not able to walk very fast. As soon as it started to rain he insisted on giving me his hat to protect me. Then when the rain got heavier Christoph took off… ran ahead, went home, got the car and came zooming back to pick me up… even though by then I was only about 3 minutes away from home, enjoying the walk and the rain had stopped!
What I felt was his humongous love and how he wanted to take care of and protect his precious wife. To my ears this was Christoph shouting ‘I LOVE YOU’ from the rooftops with a megaphone. So of course I joyfully got in the car to be with this beautiful loving man.
I then imagined another scenario where I could have responded with anger and said ‘why did you run off?’ I could have said ‘you idiot I am almost home now, I want to keep walking and it is not even raining’. Then I would have missed out big time and he could have felt rejected, then reacted to that hurt and we would have missed that beautiful moment and might even have ended up having a fight.
It also occurred to me that many wars and fights could well (or rather unwell) come out of people not being open to love in its many forms and expressions and how completely crazy that is!
The more I am open to love and allow myself to receive it and express it, the more I see it everywhere… in myself, in others and in nature. I then start to see more clearly how everyone is pure love in essence, and when not expressing in this way it is because they are in reaction and protecting a hurt or imagined hurt – perhaps even from long, long ago.
Love is such a fascinating subject because it is ultimately something we all want but really all already are!
