We all need love in our life, yet sometimes that need seems to go unfulfilled. If you are hungry for love and find that the outer world does not appear to be providing it, you might want to practice “putting love in the little things” and build your own treasure chest of love.
I learned the wonderful concept of “putting love in the little things” from my work with Aura-Soma, a magical color healing system that originates in England. The idea behind it is quite simple: if you bring love, tenderness and compassion to the simple things in life, you build up a love bank account. Then you can dip into that treasure chest of love whenever you need it.
Love is the preferred food of the soul. By putting love in the little things, you develop a daily practice that helps keep your soul vibrant and full. You build a pathway to the Divine. Then in those moments when you are feeling lost or sad, your soul can easily find the pathway to feed you back.
The process is easy. As you move through your life doing the chores required each and every day, bathing, driving, cooking, cleaning, shopping (any mundane activity that’s part of life) simply imagine doing these things with presence and with love.
With just a little practice you can develop a direct connection between your hands and your heart. Once this connection is established, you simply “intend” love as you do your work. Because energy follows thought, your intention opens a channel that pours love into the things that you touch. Once a channel is open, the love can also flow both ways. As I began this practice, I was surprised to discover all the love that came flowing back to me right there in the moment as well.
Love has an amazing way of begetting more love. The more we practice “being” love, rather than “needing” love, the more love becomes a way of life rather than a commodity that we bargain for through actions or deeds.
Love is a magical healing gift. It is said to be the dominant frequency of our beautiful blue green earth. It’s not something that we have to work for or do things for. It just is. So practice simply opening your heart to love and allowing it to move through your hands into everything that you do. Then during those times of need, when you think no one is there, all you have to do is remember your treasure chest of love and your soul will shower you with all the love you could ever need.
