Love and light to you all is a common phrase for those with an awakened soul. Here I write about what it means to me while introducing you to the wonderful words of Rumi.
Rumi was a 13th century Sufi mystic and poet, and his words inspire me.
Love and Light
Love is an experience that is full of emotion, sometimes good, sometimes bad. It is also the opposite of fear.
Looking back on my own experience of love, I realise the error of my ways and how Rumi’s words resonate so deeply within me.
In my past, I’ve suffered heart break a number of times, but my first time is still sometimes hard to bare. Being cheated on can be soul destroying!
I still to this day remember feeling the emotional pain and surrendering to the darkness.
I absorbed myself with the feelings of a victim and I chose to dwell on the pain. Moving on and allowing myself to heal was not at the top of my agenda. I was determined to avoid ever feeling like this again.
The problem here is that rather than spend time healing, I buried it for years by placing a barrier around my heart. Not only was I self-destructing, I was severely restricting my opportunities of finding true love. I was also closing myself off to LOVE, which includes self-love.
A broken heart fixed
Seeing the light is the way forward for healing a broken heart. Choose to feel the emotional pain and then move on with lessons learned. I’ll give you a classic example of my own experience.
Trust your intuition and don’t ignore it!Amanda
Looking back for me, all of the signs were there that he was a cheating b*astard, yet I chose to ignore my higher self. Fear got the better of me and it was better to avoid these feelings of insecurity. I didn’t want to picture myself in life without him because I felt at the time that I would be nothing. Ooops!
My first learning lesson was NEVER to rely on anyone else for the feeling of security and love. The light is within me now and I’ve grown my inner strength and self-love. My second learning lesson is to trust my intuition and don’t avoid issues that need resolving.
I acted the victim and in this mode I was soaking up the attention of others as a form of feeling better. I was spending most of my time thinking of all the bad things in the relationship instead of what I once loved. The problem is, I wasn’t seeing the light.
It’s your choice what you focus on
See the light by focusing on what’s positive and moving on. Yes, I know how hard it is to find a positive aspect out of such a deep wound, but they are there. What have you learned about yourself is a question you should ask. This of course does take time and whether it’s 15 minutes or years, it’s right for you if you’re facing it.
Seeing the light is moving away from the darkness and the darkness represents all those negative thoughts, and emotions.
It’s OK to feel the pain of love, but don’t dwell in the darkness and miss out on life.
