It’s the month of love! Though romantic love is mainly the focus for atleast 14 days of the month, there is more that we can do besides show some extra love to our partner and eat chocolate with them.
For the rest of the month of February, I challenge us all to love beyond our boundaries. What does this mean?
It means to show love in ways that you have never done before, in ways that you only thought about but then backed away from the idea because it seemed ‘too much’ . Let me just tell you, that there is no such thing as ‘too much’ , and if you are prompted to feed the homeless, give back through a charity, give a helping hand, etc regardless of what others might say, and regardless of who you are helping. Your Love matters. And the Love that you share and want to share with others matters. You never know what the kind deed that you’ve done can do for someone. It can save a life.
So for this month of February. Be Love. Show Love. Speak Love. Act with Love. To every human, animal, and thing.
Here are some tips to help you along!
- Love Your Self.
If we can not show love to ourselves, it will be harder for us to reach out and be vulnerable.
Become comfortable with showing your own self – mind, body and soul – love, by following your heart and giving yourself what you need when you need it. Giving this kind of attention to your self will make you feel better and you will naturally want to share the Love with others!
- Be Still.
In the quiet, we hear the voice of Spirit, the All Loving Source that blows breath in our body and encourages us live authentic. In the stillness you will find a clear mind, a clean and open heart, and a peace filled soul. Walking in and with the presence of Spirit, we are always encouraged to be Love Unconditional.
- Do some Yoga!
As a practicing yogini and experienced yoga teacher – I speak from experience when I say do yoga. Because yoga connects us to the deeper parts of ourselves that we are aware or unaware of, every time you practice you will feel different. Every time you practice you will feel more in tune with who you really are! And all that love won’t stay bottled up!..you will want to get up , go out and do something good for others.The best poses to add to your routine to help Open Your Heart are : Ustrasana (Camel Pose), Urdhva Dhanurasana ( Wheel Pose) , & Natarajasana ( Dancer Pose)
- Random Acts Of KindnessThis is perhaps the one that seems most easiest..but here is the twist. I challenge you to step outside your comfort zone. Every day keep an eye out for the chance to help someone you don’t know. And don’t just give the man on the side of the street a dollar..let the random act of kindness find you.
It is those moments that just show up – and give you the opportunity to help someone. Usually we shy away from this, but I am asking you to feel the fear and do it anyway. The fear will subside and turn into compassion and unconditional love.
