I discovered this little gem when reading Love Karma, by Char Margolis. The book is designed as a guide for “using your intuition to create and nurture love in your life”, but what I found intriguing are the myths she dispels about love and relationships.
Now I must admit at first I was a little skeptical. After all, Char is a well-known self-proclaimed psychic medium and regularly speaks with dead people. But…if you can keep an open mind – discarding what is contrary to your beliefs while embracing the universal principles about love – you’re going to love this book.
Char gets to the heart of what challenges so many of us in developing and maintaining healthy relationships – that we do not see ourselves as complete and whole individuals, and that we don’t learn to love ourselves first before falling head over heels for someone else. As a result we spend countless hours looking for external validation for our internal insecurities.
In addition to great love and relationship advice, Love Karma also includes an insightful explanation of pre-destination vs. free will. It seems that while “predestination (the road map) plays a part in the path of our lives, free will and choice play an even larger role”. Once again, it is our choices that determine the direction of our lives.
I could go on and on about the things I found interesting, but I kind of want to leave it for you to discover, think on, and then decide if you agree. To whet your appetite I’ve listed below 10 fresh ideas on love, courtesy of Love Karma. Drop me a line and let me know what you think!
Loving on Me as I Love You! ❤
10 Fresh Ideas About Love
courtesy of Love Karma
- All love begins with the knowledge that we are divine and made of love and therefore worthy of love shared with someone else.
- The true goal of all our relationships is to become more loving of ourselves, other beings and of God.
- Anyone wanting to get into a great relationship must first get whole, clear and balanced.
- Self-love is something within us that radiates out into the world. Think of it as a light beam. The brighter it shines, the more illuminated everything becomes! We must be complete in ourselves before we can give freely and fully to another person.
- We do not need anyone else to be complete and whole. If we continually are looking outside ourselves for something or someone to fill us up or to make us feel loved, we are setting ourselves up for a lifetime of hurt and a feeling of emptiness.
- True intimacy is the result of completeness joining completeness, when we bring our wholeness to a relationship with another complete human being.
- Every soul has the chance for love. We are born from love, into love, and our purpose on earth is to better learn how to give and receive love.
- A soul mate is someone who helps our soul to grow. It can be a romantic partner, or a best friend, and we have many.
- The purpose of our soul mates and relationships in general is to learn and grow in love, wisdom and goodness, so that we become more like God.
- When we’re whole and complete in ourselves, we can be happy whether we’re in a relationship or not.
