Loving The Dark Stuff
Reflecting and contemplating on oneself and God is essential to self-discovery and spiritual awakening. Writing down and sharing one’s inner thoughts and feelings supports the process of self-awareness and conscious awakening to the Source Of Unconditional Loving … within.
This LAF Course serves to encourage the inner work of Self Love and Love of God through Meditation, Journaling, and the Application of LAF: Loving, Accepting, and Forgiving.
In ILM, we focus on one simple meditation, and that meditation has one single purpose: to awaken to the divine that we are by going within to have our own direct personal experience. Meditation is being in communion with God; it is simply loving God … and allowing God to love you.
Journaling can be a great support to you and your focus on Spirit. By writing down your awarenesses and experiences that you receive in meditation, you will be creating an intention and focus for living the Loving in your daily life.
Applying LAF (Loving, Accepting, Forgiving) supports you in bringing your thoughts and feelings, your actions and reactions, into the Loving so that nothing separates you from God. There are many ways to approach LAF. LAF walks you through the steps of:
~ Loving yourself … loving all of you and loving God. Loving the parts of you that fear, judge, and go into reaction with yourself, situations, and others, so that you can claim and love yourself and love God – through the fears and judgments, letting them go … and getting your freedom.
~ Accepting and acknowledging the fears and judgments that you are creating, controlling, protecting, afraid of losing, or shunning and avoiding … so that you no longer create a barrier of separation in yourself or between you and God.
~ Forgiving yourself for judging your fears, and forgiving yourself for all the judgments and fears you hold against yourself, others, and God (thoughts and feelings, actions and reactions).
The following is a breakdown of applying LAF:
Diagnosis ~ Protection + Fear = Separation
Prescription ~ Loving + Acceptance + Forgiveness (LAF)
Applying LAF on a daily basis = Spiritual Healing and Freedom!
Through meditation, journaling and LAF, you will begin to open to the Loving that is inside of you; the fears and judgments will slip away and you will begin to live, more and more, the Loving that you truly are.
