Your Emotional Health
By Nancy Elizabeth Brady



Right now is the first time in recorded history that the power of love has been globally organized in order to affect large-scale change. Voices for peace have been heard around the planet, irrespective of nationality or political affiliation. People are forging new relationships as they come together to focus the irrefutable strength of love.

Most people recognize by now that peace versus war extends to a personal level. And what is personal peace? It is not just the absence of warring factions; it is a true and grounded love of self. To be at peace with one’s self is to love yourself as you are right now. You don’t need to withhold love until you satisfy a myriad of reasons you have concocted to deny yourself. If you see yourself as an individual separate from others, you will find reasons to think of yourself or others as unlovable. When you embrace the fact that you are manifested Love, you will recognize the virtue of your humanness.

 The human journey is perfectly imperfect. You are designed to express love in a way that only you can. Taking this understanding from your head to your heart opens the door to healing inner obstacles that have concealed your ability to fully love yourself. If you are waiting to love yourself until you are perfect, stop waiting. Your essence already is exactly as it is meant to be. The questions are, are you manifesting your loving self or do layers of inner pain alter your expression? Early childhood experiences that still echo through you as unloving messages will recede as you choose to love yourself deeply. Yes, the buried pain will rear its head to be dealt with, but by maintaining a strong foundation of love, you will see your way clear to truth. Releasing these past misperceptions in order to resolve inner barriers can be a welcoming journey of love.

I saw an example of this when Jennifer (not her real name) came to see me because she was tired of attracting unloving relationships. Through her process of discovery, Jennifer recognized how she acted in unloving ways toward herself. Her inner awakening opened doors in her heart that had been closed for a very long time. With her new perspective, she was able to embody her own self love and is now in a loving relationship and a new job where she is respected.

Love is who we are. We can use other words to describe love, such as peace, acceptance, or we can even apply words like compassion, understanding and appreciation. Doing this helps us see more clearly the conflict that is playing out in our world today. At the time of this writing, our country has just entered war and hopefully by the time you read it, the fighting will have stopped. Through this world event, we are being given an opportunity to claim peace for our self and others as the world mirrors our collective suffering. The desire for peace lies within the heart of every individual. In our planetary arena, we have immense power to shift the world into a loving place. It requires that we step into our own love and walk that path.

I invite you to look into the face of illusion and claim truth for yourself and all people by being the love you are. Mother Teresa once said “Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand. Anyone may gather it and no limit is set. Everyone is within reach of love…”
