Look for the Love

r2g-p1-ai4-Gandhi-webThink about the last time you truly felt alive.

What were you doing? Who were you with? You were probably doing something you’re passionate about or spending time with someone you love—a favorite relative, beloved animal companion, dear friend or treasured lover.

Now think about the last time you felt the life being drained out of you. You probably felt stressed or stuck—a personal loss, unfulfilling job, contentious relationship, financial setback, health challenges or isolation.

While loneliness, boredom and frustration can be common elements in the circle of life, you always have the ability to reclaim your personal power and recapture your zest for living. When you reengage love, you put the life back into your life.

By fueling yourself with constructive core energy based in love, respect, curiosity, compassion and gratitude, you too can create a life of generous, effortless, gracious flow filled with faith, hope, prosperity, peace and joy. By focusing on feeding all nine of your senses—the five outer ones through which you celebrate your external world and the four inner ones of creativity, vitality, spirituality and belonging through which you imbue your experience with meaning—you can restore a sense of balance and harmony to your days.

Give and receive love in all its many forms. Create something new and exciting. Strike up a conversation with a stranger. Visit a park or museum to witness beauty. Help someone in need. Take a walk to expand your perspective and renew your vigor. Express gratitude for your many blessings.

When you give and seek experiences of love, you move yourself forward into a life you love by empowering yourself with constructive, expansive, invigorating energy. The old saying goes, “Everyone eventually dies, but not everyone really lives.” It’s up to you. You are the great decider for your life.

If you want to start really living, embrace everything as an opportunity and, grounded in hope, look for the possibilities. They are everywhere! When you choose to express love in all of your activities and relationships, you will find love waiting for you. Your life will become a fluid Journey to Wholeness grounded in who you are being, not what you are doing. Every breath, thought, word and act will automatically transform every being and situation you encounter. You will, by your very presence, quite literally change the world.

Choosing to live in love starts with loving yourself unconditionally. Being grateful for every aspect of yourself—the attributes that thrill you and those that frustrate you and everyone who knows you. They are all essential elements of your role in unique expression of the Divine. When love transforms your relationship with yourself, it can’t help but transform your personal life, your work and the world.

About djwlifecoach

I am retired from 40+ years of helping individuals and teams build lives and organizations they love. One of the great joys of my retirement from professional practice is having greater bandwidth to donate my professional and creative talents to support and promote animal and social welfare charities. During my 30 years as an organization transformation consultant, I served as a senior partner in four of the world’s largest, most prestigious global professional services firms. In 2005, I took a five-year sabbatical to find healing and peace because non-stop work had taken its toll. My recovery from burnout led to finding my purpose guiding others on their journeys. As a board-certified coach, author, consultant, radio host, Reiki Master and EFT/tapping practitioner, I share hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. 111419 DJW Sid CH Pet Corner Photo ShootI help clients achieve rapid, extraordinary, sustainable results by connecting who they are with what they do, a connection often lost through stress and the sheer busy-ness of daily life. Courageous self-awareness and unconditional self-love lead to honest choices based on priorities that nurture you and those around you on a journey to wholeness. Decades in coaching, consulting, change management, organization development, human resources and mixed media artistic expression honed my business sense, professionalism, creativity, intuition, leadership and communication skills. The result? Practical tools that help you become more insightful, creative, committed, productive and fulfilled. Even the most dedicated and hard-working individuals can shift from frustration to a sense of futility when their values, passion, work, and lives become disconnected. One of the problems with not taking care of our health is that the effects of ignoring it are often slow to show up. We continue to juggle family responsibilities, work and finances until we lose ourselves, waking up one day 50 pounds heavier in body and soul—no good to ourselves or anyone else. I love working with people who are ready to take life-changing action to make their dreams a reality. At each moment, you have inside you all the wisdom you seek to choose your life and your way of showing up. Limiting thoughts, beliefs and feelings can block you from moving forward. An absence of love and concern for yourself can result in negative head talk that holds you back with discouraging messages about who you are and what you can do. By listening and caring deeply, I guide you in connecting with your own inner wisdom. We identify the way you’d like to live. We determine what’s blocking you and release you from the hold those blocks have over you—unleashing the positive energy that will fuel you forward. Together we develop a plan to move you closer to your heart’s desire. My books, blog, radio show and signature coaching programs help individuals and organizations harness the transformative energy of love to turn unexplored possibilities into fulfilling realities and step into their greatness. What’s love got to do with it? Everything! My book, Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life! (Hay House/ Balboa Press 2013) shares my story and the stories of 10 of my clients along with my signature Discovery Framework. For fun, I love reading, sewing, knitting, yin yoga, afternoon tea, opera and movies. I live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my spouse, Wilson Abney, and the cat who runs our life, Maisy Jane.
