The Beauty And Power Of Unconditional Love
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- love is one of the best feelings we can experience as humans. A wonderful gift worth celebrating every single day of our lives. It’s an amazing cosmic bond that lifts and heals our spirit. Songs, plays, poems, and books about the power of love have been written since the beginning of time.
Love can take on different shapes and forms. There’s tragic love, one-sided love, naive puppy love, lustful love, prohibited love, friendly love, and the most yearned for kind- unconditional love. This is the kind of love that everyone hopes to have, but few are willing or capable of giving in return.
When you’re in love, it’s usually the first thing on your mind when you wake up, and the last thing on your mind when you go to sleep. Love saturates everything around us with its wonder and grace.
We’re put on this planet to live life and learn how to give love, even when things are difficult. Unconditional love is one of the simplest forms of love, but it can be the hardest to master. This is the kind of love that we should all strive to have and give in our lives.
Most people think of the love a mother has for her child, or the love a loyal dog has for its owner when we hear the words “unconditional love”. Unconditional love for a partner in a romantic relationship isn’t the first thing that pops to mind. This could be because, a lot of time, couples place conditions and stipulations on their partner.
It’s easy to love your partner when they’re rich, well-educated, and handsome; it’s harder to love them when they’re down on their luck, experience a physical handicap, or lose their job.
This is unfortunate because everyone deserves love, and loving someone less because of what they have or don’t have isn’t fair to you or them.
Romantic relationships can be one of the best forms of healing available to us. When you’re in a healthy relationship, your partner becomes your teacher, your guide, your cheerleader.
They can make your life better and show you the beauty in the world that you may have missed before. Don’t let conditions, rules and restrictions rob you of your chance to be with the person who can change your life.
On the flip side, being in an unhealthy romantic relationship can be extremely damaging to your spirit and soul. It can make you question everything about yourself and doubt yourself.
It can make you feel inferior and bring out the worst in you. You can lose yourself in the process of always trying to please someone who in the end, just isn’t the person you’re supposed to be with with.
If you seem to always find yourself in unhealthy relationships and don’t know why, consider getting a love reading by a talented online psychic. They can give you valuable information about why you are attracted to the wrong people and help you resolve the issues that are keeping you from meeting the right one.
Healthy relationships can also encourage spiritual growth. They give you the chance to explore, express and complete each other through love.
Whether your relationship is in a state of peace and happiness, or is experiencing a rough and difficult patch, you’re being given the opportunity to learn how to accept someone besides yourself and develop deep unconditional love.
We’re living in an amazing time of rediscovery. On a planetary level, we’re in the process of redefining what we consider to be pure love.
As a species, we want to love and be loved- the life-giving, soul-filling, unconditional no restrictions given kind of love. A love that extends beyond superficial, shallow and petty issues. A love that is bigger than we are and that seeps out into our everyday interactions with all the different souls we come into contact with.
Unconditional love can be one of the most difficult forms of love to achieve, especially if you’ve experienced heartache before. It calls for you to look deep within yourself, while also thinking above and beyond yourself.
It requires putting someone else on your same level and respecting and accepting them for who they are, regardless of what they may or may not have or what they look like. Once you’ve learned to love someone unconditionally, you’ll see that it thrives even in the darkest of circumstances and can only get stronger.
Unconditional love is an action, not just words. It’s you making the choice to seek the well-being of another person without worrying about what you’ll get in return. Your “reward”, if you will, is the feeling you get when you act with love.
When you love unconditionally, you love that person under all conditions, no matter what others tell you. This doesn’t apply to an unhealthy relationship though, I’m strictly referring to wholesome, positive relationships.
If someone is purposely hurting, abusing, bringing you down, or cheating on you then this is not a healthy relationship and you should not accept this behavior from anybody.
If you find that you can only receive love if you do certain things, look a certain way, or act a certain way then this is not unconditional love, this is love with conditions. If you receive love without reservation and stipulations, this is unconditional.
Loving someone unconditionally doesn’t mean you have to accept or like everything your partner does, it just means that you love them in a manner that surpasses their mistakes.
Unconditional love isn’t something that’s reserved for just your partner, your family, your friends, or your co-workers, it’s for yourself as well. You need to learn to love yourself no matter what you look like, what mistakes you’ve made, your economic status, etc.
In fact, you actually need to love yourself unconditionally before you can give that to someone else. If you can’t recognize, accept and forgive your own imperfections, how do you suppose you can do this for someone else?
It all starts within you. If you don’t view yourself as an individual who is worthy of pure love, it’ll be almost impossible for you to see yourself as worthy of offering that to someone else or receiving it from someone who feels that way about you.
Unconditional love accepts you the way you are, with all your flaws and faults, unselfishly and with kindness, without criticism or judgement.
Always cherish your individuality and authenticity. Every day that you wake up is another chance to give and receive love wholeheartedly. Make it your goal to spread love and leave the world in a better state than how you found it!
