What Is True Love?

I was thinking about this photo recently – specifically the words on the front of my T-shirt.

As I sat with my mind, I asked the question “What is true love?”.

The answer that landed – which clearly came from somewhere else other than my head! – was

“True love is a connection with your Soul that is so deep and unique to your individual and personal human experience it can’t be broken”.

Right then.

So as you may expect – or I hope you would have done if you were having this conversation! – I asked the next logical question.

“If it can’t be broken, why do many people feel broken? And is there anything we can do to mend it?”

The answer?

“Over time you begin to believe what others say about you, say to you, say in the media, say all around you. And the energy grows and grows and grows until collectively you believe what you hear.

That love is an external energy. Something that ‘sits’ outside of you, in someone else, or something else, or the job you have, or the home you live in, or the school you send your kids to, or the clothes you wear, or the people you hang out with, or how much money you have in the bank.

Love has become in part a synonym for ‘social acceptance’ – aka do what’s ‘right’ and people / the external world will love you for it.

But True Love doesn’t work like that. True Love comes from inside you. From the connection you have with your Soul, your purpose, your journey in this lifetime.

True Love is you.

True Love is inside you.

It’s your job to go find it.”

As you might expect, I had another question.

“How do we do that? How do we find True Love inside ourselves?”

The answer?

“You find True Love by connecting with your Soul. By communing with it. By listening carefully to what it has to share.

Have a date, drink your favourite drink, have on some music, light a candle, do whatever you feel called to do, and record the conversation you have with your Soul, to capture its wisdom and guidance.

This is where you might get stuck. Because once your Soul has shared her wisdom with you, it’s up to you to do something about it!

What you hear in this conversation you may like. Or you may not. Or you may say ‘Oh I can’t do that’ or ‘People won’t like me if I do that’ or ‘I’m in this relationship / job / family / situation and I can’t possibly follow my Soul right now. I’ll listen to her later’.

We say – Why? Why wait? It’s taken you this long to listen to your Soul, and even though she’s been waiting patiently for this moment, you still deny her wisdom?

Take your time. Ask for your Soul to reveal her truth. Once you start listening AND taking action, you’ll wonder why you didn’t listen in the first place”.

I feel as though there’s a lot more to be revealed here. Stay tuned!

With much love,
