“You come to us from another world from beyond the stars and void of space. Transcendent, pure, of unimaginable beauty, bringing with you the essence of love. You transform all who are touched by you.”… “You are the master alchemist. You light the fire of love in earth and sky in heart and soul of every being. Through your love existence and nonexistence merge. All opposites unite. All that is profane becomes sacred again.” Rumi
Since the experience and effect of love cannot be fully expressed in words, maybe poetry can come closer to describing it. Rumi’s poem seems to provide a very thorough and emphatic description of the incredible transformative or ‘alchemic’ power of love.
The power of love may appear almost magical since thoughts are invisible, however the Law of Attraction being a law explains that love operates in a consistent and precise way with everything that occurs in our lives happening in response to the thoughts that we are thinking. As love is the highest emotion when people do their best to lean in a positive direction with their thinking this is when they open themselves more fully to the universal assistance that is available.
Love is a Choice
Going through situations with love doesn’t mean that someone has to feel love all of the time but rather that they make a commitment to do their best to focus positively.
To go through situations with love also doesn’t mean that it is necessary to love a challenging situation or experience but rather to use our focus, to focus in any way that enables us to keep leaning in the direction of love.
Benefits of Choosing Love
There are innumerable benefits of choosing love. Firstly, choosing love enables positive transformations to happen much more quickly and in a smooth way. It also assists in enjoying the journey as we are moving in the direction of wanted things.
In addition, by going through situations with love it ensures that any transformations that occur will be real and that they will be able to be sustained.
Finally by choosing to love we gain clarity and it becomes easier to see the truth in situations.
How to Choose Love
As thought is the alchemic power, to choose love it is necessary to focus positively.
We can ask the universe for assistance in loving with requests such as “please allow me to feel love in this situation” or “please allow me to see the good in this situation”.
We can also choose to love by distracting the mind from anything that might be challenging us and focusing on what we ‘do’ love in our lives and feel good about.
In addition it can be beneficial to imagine or write about how you would like to feel or what you would like to experience in the future.
Interestingly, it doesn’t matter what thoughts we practice to choose to love as by thinking any good feeling thoughts we allow ourselves to be more in our natural state of love and appreciation in which we feel happier and wanted things can flow into our experience.
As a belief is a thought that we keep thinking in order for any new thoughts to become dominant they may need to be practiced regularly.
For anyone who would like further assistance in transforming their thoughts to feel more love and appreciation, the Law of Attraction Centre has released the visualisation ‘Living in Love’. For more information please see: https://www.lawofattractioncentre.com/living-in-love/
