I recently watched a video with Bruce Lipton where he talked about the importance of falling in love.
What I loved about it (pun very much intended) was that it wasn’t so much about the importance of falling in love with another person (which can be good too), but rather, just being in a state of LOVE. No matter what you are doing, to fall in love with that.
Fall in love with your job, your meditation practice, with working out, with doing the dishes, whatever has your attention at that moment.
The other aspect of the video was that when you are in a state of love, your conscious mind stays in the present moment and is focused on that which you desire the most.
We talk at length in our NLP trainings about the importance of the Unconscious Mind and the Conscious Mind. It is the captain of the ship. It is the one telling the crew where to go. So with that in mind, if you fall in love with your dreams and aspirations and live in a state of being in love, your conscious mind is focused on that which you desire the most and the 126 bits of information that you allow to come into your perception will be the very things that you need to achieve your outcomes.
Let me back up. We have 2 million bits of information bombarding our nervous system at any given moment but we can actually consciously pick up about 126 bits. It doesn’t matter whether you are an enlightened being of Joe Schmo, that is just how we work as human beings. This comes from the book FLOW by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. So, the idea is not to increase how much you take in, but rather to get choosy about what you pick up on.
So, if you are in a state of love and focused on what makes your heart sing and you are in that state consciously, your reticular activation system kicks in and you begin to see, hear, and experience the 126 bits that correlate to your desires.
This isn’t just NLP. Many of the wisdom traditions and schools of personal growth emphasize the importance of being in a space of love because it is a high vibration frequency and has a magnetic quality. And from A Course in Miracles, the only real emotion is love everything other than love is just an illusion.
So, with that said dear one, how can you shift into love? Think of it this way. Anything that makes you feel alive, expansive, and just plain good is love! So do more of that. Anything that makes you feel tight, constricted, and yucky is the absence of love. Do less of that. Pretty simple. Follow the yum!
Let’s fall in LOVE together!
From my loving expansive heart to yours…
