We hide from love. We hide In old relationships, old lives and old beliefs.  In our perceived unworthiness of real love, we shield ourselves with what no longer fits.  We wish on every falling star of love while silently doubting it exists at all.  We write about it, sing songs about it and dedicate our waking lives thinking about it, all the while doubting our own deserving of that which we dream of.  We ache for it and then hide under the blankets closing our eyes tightly. Why are we afraid of love?

What are we so afraid of???

Vulnerability, Surrender, Letting go of control. Believing. Change. Being unworthy, Being real, Trusting, Being seen, Releasing old beliefs, Hope, Rejection. All the components we fight against while desiring to open up completely and let someone in.

We are so afraid of rejection, we swallow our words.  We are so blind to our worthiness and deserving, we swallow our truth.  We are so deaf to the call of our heart, we swallow our deepest feelings, needs, and desires.

Love never loses its way home, it’s within us all along; a shining beacon rooted deeply on our shores.  It’s always flowing to us and inside of us.  Unyielding in its power, unwavering in its belief and undying in its devotion, it never dies.  Our task is to believe in it and not lose faith when darkness rises and it becomes hard to see.  It’s still there, with the power to breathe life and fire into once stale lungs.

Why are we afraid of love - Temple Body Work

Our greatest challenge is to embrace the whole of who we are and love ourselves completely enough to never stop believing in our worthiness of the love we dream of.  When we truly embody the knowledge that love is something real that we are born deserving, it’s easier to have faith in its existence and to not sacrifice ourselves or settle for any less.  It becomes easier to know deep in our hearts that love never loses its way home to us, because we are love and this is all an unfolding path of love. That the real love that is meant for us will always find a way and that trusting in it is part of believing  in love.

And so…. Onward we go continuing our eternal journey deciphering the language of love…..
