Good Afternoon. Did you know that Peace is where Romance lives? This post is an excerpt from my healthy lifestyle book, A Gentle Life by Amor Milagre. I sense the world has long been in a tangle. To unwind and release from this static, each one of us may gently be our true self and connect naturally. This is how the universe may feel…just right.
1. Awareness for the Senses
Feel your skin, your body functioning, your heart exhale, and your electrons buzzing all around you. Breathe in…and out. Feel what you love and what you lack. Listen and give. Feel again. Smile with your entire being. Connect with the trees. Feel their energy. Connect with each other. Send and receive loving energy. This is you. You are love. Love your body, mind, heart, soul, energy, and daily choices. Heal the past, be in the present, and open to the future. Love the connections and find pockets of joy in how you can share and grow this love. It’s infinite…and it’s always there…everywhere…waiting to be kissed up and hugged up and embraced fully with every spec in the universe. Burst with love! Let love accompany you during your day. Consume love. Breathe love in…and out. Listen to love as your lullaby. Dream love. It feels good.
2. Date Yourself
Before you can be present and emotionally in tune with anyone else, you can choose to be eternally in love with your inner and outer self. Try out self dates. Go to a variety of places (safely) and become aware of what you love. You may be surprised what you didn’t know you could enjoy! You can easily date yourself at home, too. Even ten minutes is enough time to check in. Explore new experiences. Exercise in gentle ways. What kinds of movement feel healthy? Wander and sense what your soul connects with. Take your time to know and feel and process. Sort it all out. Nourish healthy habits and memories, and let go of all negativity. It’s too heavy to hold, so let go. Adore your body and the mysterious and magical things it can do. You are connected to everything in the universe. What would you like to adorn your web with? People, places, and nature that match your true energy will connect with you naturally when you are living as your authentic self. Connect within. The confidence, sweetness, and fun that you have when alone is felt everywhere by you being you. This is attractive to yourself and the world around you. This is where peace and romance live…within your authentic self. You are all you need to feel wonderful. Always stay aware of the messages from your inner self, your soul, and your body. You can date yourself all your life. It is important to keep up with this respectful relationship, especially when you have others in your life. Communicate in a love language within and with others for a peaceful day. You choose…everything.
3. Express Yourself
Dancing to music you love, singing in the bath or shower, daydreaming, helping others, laughing and playing, crafting and scrapbooking, drawing and painting, exploring, sewing clothes and toys, acting and reading, inventing and building useful things with natural materials, sailing out with oars to float and unwind, sowing seeds and bulbs, playing instruments, writing creative stories and love letters, decorating, cooking and savouring, simplifying, walking in nature, swimming and climbing, being still, and meditating are just a pocketful of ways to embrace your emotions. Feel all of them, process, and release. This positive practice allows air to flow through your energy. Your senses are set free, and you are open to experience this new moment. What do your senses tell you?
For more gentle living, read my original book collection and these journal posts. Listen with your heart. It may tell you something very different than what you think you feel. Listen….and love.
Love, Amor Milagre
