Love is Practical

Apparently I signed up for Audible at some point. I had so many credits built up that I was about to start losing them. SO, I started downloading! One audiobook I listened to was Feel Free to Prosper by Marilyn Jenett. Wow! It was just what I needed to hear. It’s about changing your mindset on work and money among other things. One thing Jennet says is to repeat just the word to get the idea to sink into your subconscious mind. For example, say “wealth,” instead of “I am wealthy.” The point is to avoid the arguments and resistance that your mind will wage, if in fact you are not already wealthy.

I really liked that idea, but after awhile I started using the word “love” instead. I’d repeat it silently to myself as I was going to sleep, waking up, walking, or having negative, brooding thoughts. I instantly felt such a lightness that I’ve been keeping up the practice for the past few weeks. I went with “love” because I realized “wealth, success,” the recommended words to affirm, weren’t that important to me.  They probably should be, as they seem more practical, but they aren’t. Harmony and peace rank far higher for me. Yet when I practiced saying those words, they weren’t quite what I was looking for either because I didn’t feel motivated to say them. So how about love? It encompasses everything. God is love. Yes, “love” felt right.

Ironically I wasn’t expecting anything to happen outwardly. Why would it? Love alone isn’t practical. Or so I thought. However, I’ve noticed I have had unexpected phone calls from distant relatives, more friend requests and followers on social media, unexpected money, freebies, and other out-of-the-blue loving stuff…all because I added a little love, literally. 💖
