DAILY LOVE TIP – Saturday July 23, 2011

Today my sharing is in response to some Comments that have just been posted. The richness of what people are saying in the Comments and what they bring up for me and then my response is something that I have thought about sharing for a long while as my hunch is most people don’t read the Comments. I may be wrong about that. If you don’t my suggestion is to include reading them.

Comment from VIVIENNE on Friday’s post:
“Dear Susie, Lovely to come ‘visit’ with you after a too long absence. Thank you for all you do, for being a prophet (by their very nature prophets often feel alone and like giving up because they are so far out in front of the pack) and for being a constant source of inspiration. I am going to do the 30 day being love program and I am starting right now by going to snuggle up with my gorgeous husband Andrew on this misty cold winter Melbourne morning xxxx Vivienne”

My Response:
Dear dear Vivienne, I loved that you ‘visited’ today. Yes it has been too long an absence as your affirming words went straight to my soul. Your words were so soothing and tender to me. And to be fully real with you my heart opened up and I cried. I didn’t know those tears were there…..
I’m recognising I really needed to hear your words and there is a little part of me that just loves (and needs) to be seen and acknowledged. It feels sooooooooooooo nurturing and validating. I tell myself – or I tell that part of me – that I just need to serve unconditionally and follow my dream and purpose and that is enough.

Yet you’re right in that some days I do feel so alone in what I do and wonder whether it would make any difference if I didn’t do it. That voice says….”well hardly anyone would notice”.….And yet another part knows there are many ‘out there’ reading and being touched and nourished by my writing and teaching ……”being a prophet”….well I’ll think about that – My Wise Inner Bear, GEM thinks it is cool :O)!

And then, just now as I am writing this I get another Comment from Radiant REBECCA:
“Thanks so much for these Susie, I find them absolutely beautiful and love the gems of truth they hold. I always look forward to all of your posts, and love to read and ponder them, make changes because of them, and keep them for later reference too, in case I forget or need reminding! Thank you so much for all your effort, time and inspiration that goes into creating these messages that fill the hearts and minds of so many of us with love. Love you!”

More tender words for my soul from this very wise 20+ something beautiful young woman. Reminders coming in from all places –my dear SHELTON sends me a special comment; the phone rings and it is someone who wants to say thank you for how life-changing the workshop was that they did 6 months ago….and more. I do feel so blessed by the community of all you wonderful people visiting and reading my pages and valuing me.

What was I talking about just a couple of days ago♥……”The universal Law of Attraction states that we draw to us those people, events, and circumstances that match our inner state of being…….” My inner state of being knows what I want more than my outer state. LOL!

Words of Affirmation is one of my ♥LOVE LANGUAGES (I’ll talk about LOVE Languages another day) so let me out loud acknowledge my need for affirming words and how FULL and energised and encouraged and strong and ready to take on the world I feel when I get them….. And I am stating loud and clear I do want them!! NO to being inauthentic here.

So if you are wondering if there is a way you can give me some ♥LOVE-ing and support and encouragement Affirming, Acknowledging Words is it. In fact all of The 8 A’s from our Communication TOOLBOX-TREASURE BOX
THE 8 A’s
Advocate for
                                          Give Affection
                                          Give Attention

And it can be anywhere along the spectrum of on one end – long erudite and scholarly tomes to the other end of – Like it! By the way I do love the ‘Like it’ option on Facebook. It means I can always make a comment and acknowledge the other when I am pushed for time. You commenting also lets me know you are there.

Questions for you:
Are Words of Affirmation important for you♥
Are you getting the words you need from those close to you♥
Do you know how to ask for them♥

♥PERMISSION SLIP: To ask for the words you want to hear
♥MIRRORING TOPIC: Affirming words I love to hear and their meaning to me.

Also Vivienne thank you for the reminder of the new 30 Day Being- ♥LOVE Campaign for AUGUST coming up. I am near completing setting up the structure for enrolment for this which I am planning on finishing by the end of the weekend.
