Newsletter – Luxurious Love

Paradise of the soul - header Dec 2017w

It takes time to excavate our true magical selves. 
But every time we dare to dig a little deeper, heaven applauds us.
Life is about awakening to luxurious love.
Charlotte Common
Last night I sat on the garden bench and admired the magic of a clear sky. The stars shimmered and sparkled in full splendour. This experience warmed my heart to such an extent that I felt some unaddressed issues melting away like ice in the sun. I realised once again how important it is to search within for the place where we can feel divine luxurious love. With my inner eye, I saw the story of my life as a film. The good times and what I had considered bad times took on a new meaning. Every day and every night since my birth were an important part on the journey of discovery who I am in the grand universal design of love.

It became so clear to me how important it is to teach young people what it means to be a world citizen rather than just a member of a small community. A peaceful world is created in our hearts. It requires of us though that we deal with personal issues in all honesty. One of these issues is shame.
In her book ‘Daring Greatly’ Brene Brown points out how destructive the notion of shame is as it erodes our self-esteem. Shame gives us a feeling that we are not good enough. Not being good enough brings about fear of disconnection from others. Brene Brown writes, “Shame is highly correlated with addiction, violence, aggression, depression, eating disorders, and bullying. Researchers don’t find shame correlated with positive outcomes at all…In fact, shame is much more likely to be the cause of destructive and hurtful behaviours than it is a solution.”
The seeds of shame are often sown in families and schools, at times with a smile as a, so called joke. However, the seed of shame can grow into a tree spreading its roots throughout our lives, blocking progress, poisoning our vitality. Once we become aware of how painful shame is, we begin to heal. A large part of the healing process is also the recognition that the shame put on us was only the opinion or the unaddressed inner chaos of someone else in the matter.
Champagne celebrations

In a few days, a New Year begins. 2017 is graciously making room for 2018. This gives us the opportunity to open an imaginary new book with unspoilt pages.  As Champagne flows and fireworks light up the sky there will surely be a moment for utter silence within where we can connect with ourselves and others in a new constructive way.

We have the power and wisdom to create a new world starting in the first seconds of 2018 by giving ourselves divine luxurious love. Only when we love and respect ourselves can we let love flow like Champagne. Honouring that each human being is part of a grand universal design of love will light up our souls in the most magnificent colours flooding the planet with a new life giving energy.

Love is an irresistible desire  

To be irresistibly desired. 

Robert Frost

Travelling with all of you through 2017 has inspired me to learn more and love more. When the clock strikes midnight and the New Year begins, I shall pause and send all of you, luxurious love. May 2018 be the turning point for many to experience life in new dimensions as we draw closer and closer in freedom, love and peace.

Sending you warmth from my soul to yours
