I’ve recently entered into a potential love relationship with someone and it is pushing all kinds of buttons for me. I’ve been showing up more than I ever have, putting all of my real-ness out on the table. And it.is.terrifying. I found myself going into a tailspin of shame, doubt and fear, spending a crazy amount of time worrying about what he wanted and if he was going to choose me, especially now that so much of the real me was exposed. I asked the Uni-verse for a miracle, as Marianne Williamson would put it, a change in perspective and it is happening. I have slowly, but surely been able to shift the focus onto loving and choosing ME. Rather than worry about what my potential new partner was doing or wanting, I decided to do some soul searching about what I wanted. Then, I read Mastin’s post about intention. I set some pretty powerful intentions, made a beautiful photo version of them, and set it as the desktop picture of my laptop to serve as a constant reminder of the love I want in my life. My intention is:
- to be a partner in a loving, committed love relationship
- to love myself enough to show up in my relationships, exactly as I am
- to love and accept others as they are showing up, the way I want to be loved
- to find peace despite what others are doing
As soon as I created my intentions, I immediately felt a sense of love and peace wash over me. It’s amazing what happens when you choose love over fear.
Thank you for helping me along this journey!
