I often hear the words ”the power of love”. Well I would like to describe what it means to me as a medium and how it has helped on my own life’s journey.
I believe that the power of love begins with us. How can we talk about love when we do not even have the courage to talk about the way we really are, and have been, as we have travelled through our life? Nobody is perfect, and it is my belief that love goes hand in hand with self-honesty. If we are be able to recognise an aspect about ourselves that is not so pleasant we give ourselves the opportunity to take action. That is what I call self-respect, and that has connected me to the creative power of love. To love yourself is to accept all aspects of yourself, to work with them and to use them.
So many people consult a medium believing that the medium, in a short session, can fix everything for them. They believe that this can be achieved without having to play any part or taking any responsibility in resolving their problems. When I am stuck in the arrogance of intellectual or negative emotional mind-sets I inadvertently refuse to listen to the voice of my soul and the power of love that it can offer me. With time I have learnt to tell myself the truth. Slowly but surely I have then been able to free myself from emotional and intellectual patterns that have hindered the development of my own soul and repeatedly taken me back to unwanted situations.
When I dared to place aside my unwanted mind-sets and allowed myself to go into vulnerability I was able to make a choice and give myself the opportunity to see myself in a new way. That meant that I had to dare take a risk and trust that inner voice of my spirit, and trust the love that was offered to let it become a guiding factor in my life. This has brought me closer to the purpose of my life’s journey. It has also made me understand the effect of those unwanted emotional patterns that have held me prisoner of the past.
I am glad I have the power of love as my companion, but there are still times when I do not want to listen, because it is so much more comfortable to stay with old ways of being, but that will always take us back to square one and intellectual decisions cannot help. We must listen to our feelings and listen to the voice that wants to keep us in the dark.
Once you can draw upon that love within and take pioneering risks it is amazing how your own inner potential begins to blossom. When you dare take responsibility for those mind-sets that have hindered you, and have not allowed you to develop various aspect of your innate potential, you then can begin to gain mastery over those old ways of being, taking away the mastery that they have had over you.
I believe that everybody can become a channel for the love that they hold within, but love is not a word. Love is trust, the trust to use that power within and to allow it to have the freedom to become a living and creative thing. Next time you find yourself back at square one ask yourself: How can I learn to accept the hand of the power of love so that I can move forward with my life’s purpose?
