Steve: I’d like to talk about love.
I lost touch with transformative love, probably a week ago now. I’ve been totally out of touch with it.
Do you have any coaching on how to restore that connection to transformative love when I lose it?l
Archangel Michael: Yes and I would encourage you to share this.
Transformative love, heart-centered awareness, expansion, increase in frequency and vibration is not achieved – let me be even stronger – cannot be achieved from a place of defensiveness.
For whatever reason, you as humans have a tendency to say, “This is justifiable. This is not.” It is not about that. When one moves into a defensive posture, you are shutting down your heart.
You are moving to a place where you are putting up your shields, sometimes for a fear of survival, sometimes for feelings of, “I need to be correct.” It is a whole spectrum of reasons.
When you move to defensiveness, first of all you are a step away from offensiveness, and you are taking yourself out of your heart expansion. So rather than, for example being visual, instead of deep breathing you are back in shallow breathing and survival mode.
In that, you cannot feel the heart expansiveness. You do not feel that transformational love. Because you are saying, “I am feeling battered and bruised”, consciously and subconsciously.
What you do, is you stop. You say, “Oh no, I am reverting back and I do not choose or want or desire to do that. Neither does anyone in the universe.”
You reset. In other words, you go back into meditation and ask the Mother to re-flood you. And then simply allow. That sensation of feeling that you need to defend oneself, subtly or actually, will disappear.
Now, on a personal note, you’ve also been so engaged, dear heart, in sacred partnership, in the outward expression and experience of love, that you have been ignoring the inner expression.
So, come back to the balance. It is not an either or. It is a both because both are necessary. So it is not to halt that outward experience but it is to have both. You can have it all!
Steve: I’d like that.
AAM: It is time.
