by Terez "Firewoman" Hartmann A Love Manifesto and “Accidental” Key Many years ago when my husband & I had first started facilitating “Allowing True Love” Workshops, I felt inspired to get to the heart (pun intended) of “love”, for even after a lifetime of conversations, I found that there were as many different definitions for “love” as there were waves on the ocean.
Yes, there was romance, attraction, and affection, but for me, I had always felt that the essence of love went FAR deeper than these very surface or transient emotional experiences.
As I started jotting down what came from my soul, I accidentally discovered something else; a “key” for attracting or allowing well-being, abundance, and anything meaningful in all the known universe!
I know this may sound like a stretch, but if you are open and willing to manifest and allow the things that really matter for you or your clients, take a moment to truly consider the ideas share in our “Love Manifesto” below: -------------------------------------------------------------------- LOVE IS EVERYTHING. When you are in a state of LOVE, there is no other state of being that is clearer or more powerful in all the known Universe. When you feel LOVE in all its fullness and glory, you lack for nothing. When you feel LOVE at any time, for any reason, you truly are in a position to do the greatest good for others. When you feel LOVE, good comes to you and you inspire and draw out the best in others, while allowing the best of you to shine through. When you feel LOVE, your work and everything you touch bears the mark of clarity, focus and excellence. When you feel LOVE, your body responds with both energy and serenity, and well-being becomes the rule, rather than the exception. When you feel LOVE, it seems as if the entire Universe is conspiring to give you the best of everyone and everything. When you feel LOVE, you receive great ideas, take inspired action and find yourself in the right place at the right time with the right people. When you feel LOVE, you enjoy your journey every day and eagerly embrace new adventures. And the more you LOVE, the more LOVE meets you. And then... Here he is. Here she is. Here they are. And it feels like s/he/they were there - right there - all the time, waiting patiently just for you. And now LOVE just keeps getting bigger and stronger, for LOVE unimpeded only begets more LOVE. And as you LOVE together, the power of LOVE grows exponentially. And as LOVE continues to flow, it becomes a force of nature and takes on a life of its own. And then you marvel as you see LOVE work its magic; while once immovable, insurmountable obstacles morph before your eyes or crumble to the ground to open the way for you. And then you send a wave of LOVE out into the atmosphere and stratosphere that can and will positively affect more lives than you could even begin to imagine! With LOVE as your compass, you always know the way and you no longer let fear, anger, lack, or guilt cloud your vision, for now clarity is king! With LOVE as your aim, you now reside in the land of infinite possibilities: You let your heart's song be heard, you dance to it with all your being, and you sing it at the top of your lungs! With LOVE as your catalyst, your spark ignites to become a flame, your flame blazes to an inferno, and you help to light the way for all who are reaching for their light. With LOVE as your engine, an unstoppable wind fills your sails – and you become unstoppable: You move boldly and unapologetically onward, upward and forward! You remember who you are. You remember you are free. And you remember that all things truly are possible. This is what Allowing TRUE LOVE can do. Feed, experience, express, celebrate, and allow TRUE LOVE, and every piece of life's puzzle can and will fall into place, all at the perfect time, all at the perfect pace. Absolutely. Positively. Definitely. LOVE IS EVERYTHING. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Another word for Alignment When you really think about it, THIS state of being truly is THE pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and - whether we’re looking for relationships, money, well-being, stuff, opportunities, or epic experiences – EVERYTHING good comes from LOVE and leads to LOVE.
And just as I shared here, LOVE is far more than a Hallmark movie – it is simply another word for being in a state of ALIGNMENT: It is, a mental and emotional state where clarity is supreme, energy is high, your heart is light, you are fully present, and you feel truly connected to LIFE.
There is no sense of loneliness. There is no FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). There is no void to be filled.
In essence, when you feel Love/Alignment nothing is missing = All IS Truly Well.
Law of Attraction and Love When we long for things or feel a sense of lack, anyone who understands the Law of Attraction knows that this is NOT the state that is conducive to bringing the object of your desire to you – and the more “desperate” or “needy” we become, the harder it gets to move even the smallest inch closer to your intended destination; in short, this state of being mucks things up and slows the process of receiving down BIG TIME.
BUT when you find a way to: 1. Get REALLY clear about what you want 2. Do what you CAN do with what you DO have 3. Focus on the PRESENCE of the good (aka the reality of the love, abundance, well-being, opportunities, etc. that you DO have in your life)
You open the door to feeling Love/Alignment as soon as NOW, which sets a domino effect of ideas, great timing, inspired action, productive interactions, and magic into motion that can and will bring THE thing that matters to you!
A Real-Life Example of Love in Action Many years ago, I knew that I wanted to experience what many see as a great paradox when considering the idea of being in a long-term relationship: I wanted to feel a sense of deep connection with my beloved AND I wanted to also feel 100% free to do as I choose, live as I am inspired, and BE 100% me…
…Clearly two aspects that most see as polar opposites or something that clearly must involve compromise or constant struggle if you are in a relationship, right?
But after experiencing the reality that these two aspects could co-existing peacefully, beautifully, and joyfully in my 22+ year relationship with my favorite human in the known Universe, I’m here to tell you that a paradigm of connection and freedom IS possible – and, according to my husband and myself, it is actually THE ultimate expression and experience of LOVE between two beings.
To get to be 100% me (with all of my iterations, imperfections, textures, flavors, and quirks), to feel free to follow my inner muse and guidance, to go for my dreams, pursue my unique path of personal evolution, engage with adventure, and still be loved, supported, and celebrated by my husband (AND, BTW, an amazing circle of friends and “soul family” who also operate by this same principle and who also love and accept this crazy package that is me), feels like a freakin’ miracle!
But if you would have asked me if this was even possible – especially right after having my heart broken for the umpteenth time - I would have said you were on crack!
What was the bridge that made the impossible, possible? I found my way to allowing LOVE by:
1. Getting REALLY clear about what I wanted 2. Doing the best I COULD do with what I DID have 3. Focusing on the PRESENCE of the good (aka the reality of the love that I DID have in my life - including finding more love for my SELF)
And I have since applied THIS same process to attracting and allowing money, well-being, stuff, opportunities, epic experiences, and more beautiful things than I could ever count.*
The Bottom Line: Let LOVE Lead: When it Comes to Attracting ANYTHING, Love is EVERYTHING When you get out of whack or fall hard after a major life challenge, it is all-too-easy to forget what you (inherently) know. We’ve all been there in some form or fashion, and all know the difference between feeling “bad” verses feeling fab. So when we seek a good-feeling thing or experience, doesn’t it make sense that good things are FAR more likely to come to fab party than a sad one? Plus if YOU are feeling fab and are actually enjoying your OWN party, that’s not exactly a bad deal, either! Isn’t it nice to see that when you let LOVE lead, you always DO find your way? What if LOVE really IS EVERYTHING?
