The Art of Loving – By Jayne Marquis

Most of us grow up knowing we should love ourselves first, in order to love. I have heard this many times, and have said it to others many times.

But not until recently did I question WHY. Why is it so important? And so…down a rabbit hole I went.

I think, that everyone on planet earth is part of a master’s class. It’s why we should be proud of ourselves, just for having the faith and courage to be here. And, it’s why we are worthy of love in its purest form. Every one of us is worthy, infinite, and beautiful.

However, we come in with blinders on to anything more than what we can see, feel or touch with our 5 senses.

We are dealt some cards that leave us uncertain of love, of our true purpose and our true form.

This uncertain way becomes our unique way of looking at the world. It becomes our way of experiencing life, in a way that is slightly distorted… warped by pain and circumstance. It is human existence.

Many ask what is the purpose of life? Why are we here? Maybe it’s to change our vibration, by experiencing life. First, in a way that is limited, reduced, difficult, but to still find love within. Not just love, but brilliant, untarnished, exuberant, enthusiastic love, for who we are.   And with that, we then vibrate at a level that connects us to more. We have achieved joy through a vast maze of fog and trepidation.

I believe, the way we look at the world, and what we experience from the world is like looking in a mirror. If we experience distortion on the inside, it is what happens on the outside.

And so, that’s why, change and love is an inside job.

We can’t tell the mirror, hey!! Change!! I don’t like what I’m seeing!! ”Smile and be happy” Because, if we are still frowning and pained inside, the reflection in the mirror is frowning and pained. We can only change the reflection if we smile first; then what is mirrored back is that.

And so, if we are able to love ourselves, then we would create love for ourselves on the outside. We would only experience what IS loving, and then, we would experience those things, people and creatures with the same loving vibration.

It’s again why I love homeopathy!!   It helps take off the glasses of distortion.  The “glasses” being a metaphor for the subconscious beliefs that each of us hold, that stop us from loving ourselves. The beliefs, that stops us from creating beauty and harmony on the outside, all because of the distortion on the inside. This distortion is just a subconscious belief, a program or conflict. Homeopathy finds the program and treats it.

With the distortion removed, we are able to smile again from the inside, and everything changes; health, well-being, and what happens on the outside.

Its why many people say, “When I took this remedy everyone changed around me”

I’ve always thought ‘wow’, but not until recently did I realize why. It is simply the mirror affect. When we change on the inside, everything changes.

When we love ourselves we give permission to ourselves to follow and do what excites us, and be who we really are.

Is to love ourselves, simply to become more of what we really are?

And so, I believe, this is why it is so important to love ourselves. Because then, we flow, we see more, feel more, share more, living in joy and connection, and definitely changing so much more.
