Shooting Love ~ XOXO

February 14, 2014 at 10:16 am

Valentine’s Day is a day of love. If we are to be truly honest with ourselves, it is the same as every day, an opportunity to be our self as love. Daily we have this choice to be love. Sometimes people get wrapped up in the idea of what love means. I say, forget about that and just be love. Love is not an emotion as much as it is a frequency. It is how we vibrate.

When I started on my journey of learning of shamanism, I realized the act of love is one we must give to ourselves. Sometimes, we are the ones that resist it the most. We insist on “doing” things of love instead of being love.  So you might wonder, how does one be love and not really do anything?

Shooting love, as I like to call it, is an awesome way to experience love by giving it. Imagine someone you don’t like, someone who has been difficult, someone who is sick, maybe someone you don’t even know. You can do this with your eyes open or shut. Now bring you attention down to your heart. You can do this simply by shifting your attention from your head to your heart. As you do this, you bridge your head and heart, and they operate together. Now…. imagine a ball of white light that is in your heart and shooting the light from your heart to that person you are thinking of. Notice the light going straight from your heart to theirs.

This, my friends, is shooting love. This is a true gift of love. No costs required… just pure fun, love.

What you may notice is how you differently you feel. You might feel more grounded, open, joyful.

Question: So where and when do you shoot love?

Answer: Anywhere and everywhere, anytime you remember.

I do this when I go to get coffee, at the gym while I am riding the bike, during conversations, when I think of someone I love. I do this pretty much whenever I can remember..

It’s fun, easy and the bottom line, it makes me feel like I am helping the world in some way.

So shoot love freely. Have fun with it. Know that the more love you give, the more you will receive.

Sending you love,
Xoxo

D-3: Ultimate Customer Service

February 7, 2014 at 9:55 am

It’s was early December when I heard a description of relationships that was so simple that it caught my attention. I love sharing simplicity because I find it makes application so much EASIER! When things are easier, well then, let’s get it going. Right?

Essentially, love relationships are broken into 3 simple dimensions:
Dimension 1: It’s all about YOU – This is when you are completely focused on yourself in the relationship. What you are getting or not getting out of it. Are your needs being met, etc.

Dimension 2: It’s all about keeping things EQUAL – This is when you are tic of tac in the relationship. You will give but you want to make sure you are getting back at least what you put in.

Dimension 3: Your partner’s needs are your needs. In this dimension you are taking full responsibility for your role and how the other person is feeling. You will do anything to meet your partner’s needs. (I call this D-3)

You be the judge of where you are playing in your relationships. What I can tell you from my personal discussions with those who have healthy, long, and happy relationships is that they are playing in Dimension 3! The key is that both partners are playing in the 3rd dimension together. If there is an imbalance, what soon follows is resentment.

So, being a person who LOVES to experiment I decided to try playing in the 3rd Dimension in my relationship. It all started with one step…. BEING AWARE.

Once I was aware, it gave me a chance to make a new choice in who I wanted to be in the relationship.

Short story: I was in a conference and realized I was hungry. I texted my boyfriend to see if he wanted anything to eat. No response. Typically, I would think, ok he’s busy. He’s not hungry. Blah Blah Blah— I would create a story.

This time, playing in the 3rd Dimension, I decided to buy his lunch and take it to him. I prepared his food how he liked it. I went looking for where he was sitting (in a sea of 5,000 people). After much searching (and self-talk about why am I doing this… oh yeah, this where I want to be), I finally found him. I presented his lunch, and to my surprise, my boyfriend was surprised, happy and most important, appreciative of my thinking of him.

It all seems so simple and right. One slight shift of thoughtfulness.

In talking with a friend who has been married for 40+years, he described the success of his marriage in two words: Customer Service. They both provide unrelenting customer service to each other. You can make what you want of what you think customer service is.

When I think of companies who give great customer service, it’s the thoughtfulness behind it. It’s making you feel special.

Here is something that most people don’t share… but the real gift in the 3rd Dimension or Customer Service is that you are giving from a place that is pure and in service. This makes you feel AMAZING. The appreciation on the other side, and it’s repeat service. Who doesn’t like that? : )

Cheers to making this month a celebration in Customer Service! Playing in the 3rd Dimension and raising your game… and truly raising your vibration.

Being In Sync,
Suzanne
