Here’s a great guest post from my friends and amazing relationship coaches Orna and Matthew Walters
At some point every single one of us has been caught in the “LIE” of LOVE.
The lie of love that says we will never feel “this way” with anyone else. The lie of love that fears we can receive love in only this one way. The lie of love that says we can only have love with this one person.
It is easy to get stuck on the details of the past. We all spend time revisiting both the loving memories and the heartbreaks of old relationships. What we forget is that our memories are malleable. They change with time. We recreate them and alter them every time we revisit them. The more we nurture these memories, the more we get attached to the lie.
This lie of love keeps us stuck in the past. It keeps us stuck in our pain and heartbreak. It keeps us from being able to receive love from anyone else.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, the lie of love is an illusion. We decide that love has to exist in our life exactly how we want it. Our love has to arrive on our time schedule or else it is not love. Our love has to make us feel a certain way or else it is not love. Our lover has to express their love in a certain way to us or else it is not love.
This is the path to disappointment, pain and loneliness. And this path is perpetuated in literature, on TV, and in movies. The Truth of love is freeing – it is so much easier and allows us to receive what we truly desire. When we step into the Truth then we become the Master of Love!
What if we could be free from that lie and step into the TRUTH of LOVE?
The Truth of love is that love is everywhere. Love is created by you. No one can give you love, because it is always yours to have. Love has limitless expressions.
We’re not referring to some abstract idea of love. We mean feeling loved each and every day. Receiving that love from your soul mate, and giving that love in return.
The Truth of love is that love is your birthright. You were born perfect and whole. You simply have forgotten that Truth in the pain of experience, so you’ve been trying to become whole again through another person. You’ve been trying to feel complete through another person.
The only person who can complete you is you. And the way to do that is to realize that there is nothing wrong with you. You are not broken. You don’t need to be fixed. The truth of love is found in self-acceptance. Shining the light of love on those dark places inside of us.
It is time to change our relationship to those old memories so we can release ourselves from the lie. Look for the golden nugget in each past relationship. There is a gift for you to take away from your heartaches. Finding that gift allows you to grow and your love for self to expand.
Examine the ways in which you reject yourself. How often do you negate or reject your feelings by not expressing them? Maybe you hold back your true self and present a version of yourself that you believe will be more likeable or acceptable. You will not be loved for who you are until you start loving yourself for who you are.
When you learn to love yourself then love is available to you in each and every moment, and you can create love in your life under any circumstances, then you can experience the Truth – Love is inside of you and limitless.
When we get stuck thinking that LOVE is in the details – we set ourselves up for disappointment. We enter a relationship with hope – and that hope is the last thing to go. Only by releasing that hope (the hope that says love can only be fulfilled by this one person, at this time, and in this one way) can we open up to all the possibilities that love has to offer us.
What if every time your heart broke, it actually expanded and allowed room for more love to enter? When we release the lie, we welcome all our experiences as an opportunity to love ourselves more deeply. When we experience Love from inside of us, then and only then is it reflected back to us through the eyes of our Beloved.
