Ain’t love grand? (Of course it is!)
Spiritual teachers of almost every lineage (as well as therapists and coaches) direct people to love themselves and to love what is, but seldom offer any concrete means to accomplish this monumental and most important feat.
So it is no wonder that most of us are still suffering the heartbreak of falling in and out of love with ourselves (and what is happening around us in every moment). But what if we could sustain this ever elusive love, always and forever?
Imagine what life would be like if you loved yourself fully and unconditionally. What if you were in love with everything and everyone, including all parts and aspects of yourself, in every moment. This means the shadow parts, the wounded parts, illusions, as well as your golden shadow, your beauty and power. All of you!
All illusion and separation, which includes self-criticism, fears, doubts, guilt and shame, can permanently melt away through the power of love.
But we aren’t talking about the kind of love that most people associate with the word love. We are talking about that so-often-celebrated slightly-out-of-reach idea of Unconditional Love. But what is Unconditional love? And what is it not?
The Greeks had 8 words for love; Sanskrit has 96, and yet English has 1. No wonder we get so confused about what love really is (and is not).
What is Unconditional Love (and What is It Not)?
True Unconditional Love is not a feeling or thought, doesn’t come and go, isn’t born and doesn’t die, and has nothing to do with what you like, what you are attracted to, or what you condone or want. It has nothing to do with romance, and people don’t fall in or out of it. It’s different than marital, fraternal, erotic, and other kinds of love.
Unconditional Love is a universal love that doesn’t judge or distinguish, compare or contrast or evaluate or measure. Those are realms of the mind and emotion.
Unconditional Love is Infinite, always has been, and always will be. It’s a spiritual kind of love. It’s “unconditional;” It literally has no conditions on what is loved.
For most, it’s a new experience to discover this kind of love and can be challenging to understand and accept at first. For all, experiencing this kind of love changes your life forever!
Unconditional Love Brings More Wisdom/Discernment
With the practice of Unconditional Love comes a deep peace, but you do not become a doormat. In fact, your discernment is enhanced and becomes crystal clear. When we love ourselves, there is a Truth that emerges & guides our lives. Loving your shadow heals and resolves all obstacles to living from the deep wisdom of your higher-self. It’s not necessarily an easy path, as loving your shadows can be uncomfortable, but it’s what they need to fully resolve – and the payoff is the deep wisdom, and true lasting peace that resides in clarity.
As we practice Unconditional Love, our boundaries become well defined and expressed. Our ability to know and speak authentic “yes’s” and “no’s” becomes clear and articulated. Our life purpose becomes clear. Love heals anything in the way of the Truth and anything in the way of your soul’s most authentic expression. It reveals wisdom and deep knowing. This is what we call “the Flow” or The Truth or Inner Guidance. When you live this way, life becomes a continuous stream of miracles.
Avoiding Spiritual Bypassing
Replacing our wounds with the “feeling” of love doesn’t resolve anything, but merely bypasses the wound and replaces it with the temporary sensation or feeling of love. Essentially nothing has changed other than your current state. Unconditional Love is the way to truly bring love to your wounds, rather than pushing your pain down and replacing it with the good feelings of love. When we do this properly, the process often temporarily amplifies our experience of our wounds, which isn’t always comfortable or pleasant. But this Love Warrior practice brings to our wounds what they have always needed, our Unconditional Love, and they can therefore finally resolve, heal, empty and dissolve.
Our Mission: Love
Our mission is to transmit this Unconditional Love to you so that it heals and awakens you to the love that you are. When you are on retreat with us or in a private Shamanic Coaching session, we teach you the process for cultivating Unconditional Love in your own being. We call it The Oneness Method. When you fully realize Unconditional Love (and it is readily possible), you are deeply connected with your humanity and your divinity – ultimately in Oneness with All That Is. All the confusion, shame, separation melts away, and you realize whole-heartedly, you are the One you have been seeking.
