It Starts with Loving Yourself - An Angelic Channeling

We’ve all been in love.  Isn’t it the most amazing feeling?  You can barely feel your feet, your head is in the clouds, colors are so vivid, sounds are so beautiful, and happiness envelops everything!!  If only it would stay like that forever!!

Unfortunately, life sets in and we settle into the ordinary.  Our loved ones are human, and sometimes they disappoint us.  The rosy glow begins to fade.  We begin to wonder who this is that we joined up with and if maybe, just maybe, there is someone better out there.  Isn’t that how it seems to go?

This is a universal experience.  We all go through it, sometimes several times in a lifetime.  So why is it so hard?  Love is so powerful, why can’t we hold onto it?

I asked the Archangels if they would help with this.  I really wanted a good answer!!

To my surprise and delight, Archangel Metatron came in with a warm breeze on my chilly legs. He says: “Love is a struggle because you precious humans haven’t figured out love isn’t a thing to have or a person to attach to.  Love is a consciousness.  You have ideas about what love is supposed to be and when it doesn’t happen that way, you think it isn’t love.  The problem, at its core, is that most of you don’t love yourselves.  You don’t love yourselves the way you want to be loved, so there is always a gap in your love experiences.  There seems to always be something missing.  And you think you are going to find it in someone else.  Nothing is further from the truth.  That gap, that missing thing you can’t seem to find with someone else, can only be filled by you.”

I have to admit, I kind of rolled my eyes.  We hear that all the time.  Love yourself.  Others can only love you to the extent you love yourself.  Yada, yada, yada.

I heard Metatron’s hearty laugh, as he went on, “You need to learn to take the time to treat yourself the way you want to be treated.  You have to be willing to show others how you want to be loved.  I ask you, how are they going to know how to treat you, how to love you, if you don’t show them?  You will find a positive response from the world around you when you put yourself at the center of your own Universe.  When you love you, it never goes away.  It does not betray you.  It does not cause hurt.  It fills your life with beauty and joy.  It is from this space that you can share your love with others.  And you will draw to you others who love themselves as well.  This is a Higher kind of Love.  It is Divine Love.  And this is what you are all here to share with each other.”

“I AM Metatron, and I love you.  Invite me to join you on your journey of self love. You’ll come to understand how precious and powerful and life changing your love truly is!!”
