DAILY LOVE TIP – Monday August 22, 2011 

Hello beautiful people,

This patchwork below of kind and LOVE-ing messages was in my Inbox today and I thought I would share it with you. The messages in it are fabulous for dialogue starters….check out the list and see which ones impact you strongest….ones which you are needing to hear loudest right now – the ones that are hard to hear, messages that you don’t believe, ones that make you squirm, ones that make you melt and go all tender……ones that go right into your soul………….. and noticing other ways you are impacted when you read them…..sharing about what comes up for you with your Beloved and friends……..or in your journal is good too…..

you are enough
you are so full of love
let it go
you are perfect just the way you are
you can choose
you don’t have to have do it all
love what matters
i believe in you

A great exercise to do with a friend or other people who you care about is to take it in turns and for one person to go into a mindful, receptive place – that is, sitting in a relaxed place with eyes shut without distractions is best….and when you are ready ask ‘the other’ to say each message one at a time and for you to notice how hearing it impacts you –

notice your thoughts…, feelings…, sensations…, memories…, impulse… and anything else that comes up….

MIRRORING EXERCISE: when you are ready share what came up for you with ‘the other’ by having them MIRROR you asking you from time  to time – tell me more – sharing for a minimum of 5 minutes.

A reminder that when we MIRROR we give ‘the other’ our undivided attention and are fully present listening with ‘the ears of our heart’ – we listen with LOVE, with curiosity, with non-judgement and empathy crossing the bridge into ‘the others’ world. The best position is facing each other – knee to knee, eye to eye and heart to heart.

Take your time and be respectful of the depth of these messages and the longing in all of us to hear these and believe them and how most of us didn’t get these messages unconditionally.

If you aren’t able to share this with someone you can do this on your own by going into the same mindful place and noticing what comes up in you…….writing them down is good – using your non-dominant hand can bring forth some amazing buried stuff especially if you let yourself write freely for say a minimum of 3 minutes……..

Todays’ Addition to my list of My ♥favourite things…..patchwork – I just love everything patchwork and collage from quilts to clothes, to art, to pottery and china – I’m not the “it’s-got-to-be-matching” type of girl – the more mixes and variety of texture and styles and materials and design the more pleasing it is for me….as you would see looking at my china cabinet or wardrobe or bookcase or…………my blog for all that matters!! :O)

I ♥LOVE and accept the perfect and precious person you are right now, Susie.
