Love Must Come From Within First

By Sheri: As I sit in my quiet corner, I am reminded that life is changing around me and my energy is being drained.  The world is getting so negative in its thinking, its actions and its reality. Why is the Source, my God, so far away from our world right now or is it only my thinking that brings me to this conclusion?

By turning on the daily news, you are bombarded with death, destruction, war, political fighting and continual negativity.  Suicides are up, deaths from stress are up, heart attacks, strokes and mental illness is up.  Where is that happy point that we all long to feel?  Where is that feeling of peace and love?


So many people feel that you can only find love from another person and their whole life is based on what that person thinks of them, what that person feels about them. When the inevitable happens, and it always will in that situation, their entire world comes crashing down and that person is left with such a feeling of worthlessness, that they tend to self-destruct, and yes, occasionally it ends with death.

There are two places you can find love always.  Turn to the Source, your God.  It does not matter what you believe is your God; it is that you believe that no matter what the situation, your God loves you. The Source is always with you no matter what.  You have to be willing to accept that within your soul.  The second place is YOU. Love is found within you and you have to love yourself before anyone else will be able to enhance that loving feeling.

Believe in yourself, love yourself.  God loves you at all times, however, most people are not happy with whom or what they are.  Never compare yourself to another or their life, someone that has something better, and someone that is happier (or they at least appear to be).  What they don’t realize, is that person they are comparing themselves to, is also comparing themselves to another person that they feel is doing better in life. Are they truly happy or is it an outer appearance.  I have met people with and without financial wealth.  The happiest, are the ones without that could accept that life is good and love them first.  They are the simplistic people that don’t have to worry about whether someone likes them for their money only, whether someone likes them because of what they drive or where they live.

I live a very simple life.  My home is my home; it’s not big by any means.  It’s not fancy by any means, but it has something in it that many homes do not.  It has love.  It has love of me, my partner, my animals and special items which remind me of places, people, family, or just plain old make me smile. My home is far from spotless, I have no one to impress and would rather spend time with friends or family than worrying about whether someone sees a dirty dish, a mark on the floor.  Many houses I have been too, (which are spotless), the owner is never satisfied or happy with the home’s appearance or the reflection that they feel the home will have to others.  They are apologizing for the mess or the fact that they have not had it cleaned that day – no matter how clean that home is, they will never be satisfied with it as they have not resigned themselves to just living in the moment.  They are always worried about what someone else will think.  Does it matter that much?  If they are truly your friend, will it matter?  No, it will not and if it does, that person was never truly your friend.

Are there issues that you need to resolve within yourself?  Call upon Source and turn all your problems, sadness, hurt, anger, needs, and wants over to God.  Just let them all go and don’t look at them again.  God will make sure that your needs are met – not necessarily your wants but definitely your needs.  It’s amazing. Be happy with yourself and who you are, not what you assume you should be for someone else.  Love yourself for who you are and you will find that so much of your life will fall into place.  Those ‘problems’ that you perceived, will slowly disappear.  Those ‘issues’ that you perceived, will again, disappear.

Bring love and Source to the forefront of your life.  Move forward with your life.  Live in this moment.  Pass off all the fears and worries about what someone else will think.  Source loves you always and will always answer your prayers, questions, concerns, needs.  All that truly matters is what you think of yourself, and when you love yourself, life is so perfect.

Are you looking for that true love, that ‘one’ that will fill your days and nights with the dream existence?   You must find this person inside of you first as love cannot flourish if you are not truly happy and in love with YOU first.  What you feel about yourself, you are projecting out into the world.  What you think of yourself, you are projecting out to the world. So why not start by loving who you are 100% unconditionally and watch how amazing your love life becomes.  It is all about perspective and law of attraction.  It’s time to give yourself a hug and say “I love myself”.  Life will give you exactly what you put out so make it positive and worthwhile.


Blessings to you always,
