The first secret of getting what you want is knowing what you want - Arthur D. Hlavaty
After a year of dating and learning more about myself, I found new nuances to add to my definition of love and relationships. Each new experience during the year gave me a new beautiful puzzle piece to add to my love puzzle and I created a more beautiful picture of love and relationships that delighted my soul and spirit. I call it "my love list".
This was May 2022 ...
I read "my love list" everyday until it was a part of me. I kept visualising what it would feel like; how wonderful it would feel to be in a beautiful relationship. In prayer and complete faith I lived in the vision I had created. On the 9th of June 2022, he drove into my life and it is early days so all I can say for now is that it is just a phenomenal experience! As I get to know him, I am watching the things that I had visioned come true and it feels sooooooo good. Being with someone you like and someone who likes you back is awesome. Feeling a strong connection with another and finding complete joy in each other's authentic selves is a powerful feeling. It is almost indescribable :-) Being in a space where you have each other's back and each other's best interests at heart is a gorgeous experience. A space with courtesy and a care for each other's feelings. There is the possibility for a mutual claiming of each other in this space; it feels glorious. Someone said mutual weirdness equals love :-)
“We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.” - Dr Seuss
The note today is about the power of knowing what you want. Knowing what you are wanting. Something magical happens when you tell God and the universe exactly what you want. As long as it is true, noble, pure, lovely and admirable; an answer that is in your favour awaits you. Your blessing is always assured.
A scripture I love is Philippians 4: 5-8 ..
It says :
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.
It could be love, success, peace, good health, community as long as it is excellent and good - think about it -and it will find its way to you! So this week, the idea is to take the time to think and define what you want. I find it easy to write lists then update them regularly. Some people choose voice notes whilst some choose to discuss their desires/dreams/visions with others. However you choose to do it is fine as long as you are defining/refining exactly what you want and finding pleasure in the thoughts you are having.
"Suppose you ask God for a miracle and God says yes, very well. How do you live the rest of your life?"
- Walker Percy.
Get ready to be delighted beyond measure. Give all your energy to your dreams and never your fears. The will of God is for a greater expression of life so go ahead and give God and the universe something amazing to work on. Define something spectacular! Knowing what you want is the birthplace of miracles.
I am In Love
My updated definition of unconditional love: I want so much to be the love that is me that I will find a way of looking at this apart from the condition. I am looking for and finding the good in everything and everyone and every situation.
