Synopsis: This mini-love lesson presents ways to improve love with your thinking in, about and with love.
A Dozen ‘Think Love’ Helpers1. Love thinking is appreciative! How often do you think appreciative thoughts about those you love? How often do you think to look for and find things to appreciate about those you love? Is your positive, appreciative thinking more than your negative, critical thinking? Do you give thought to how to express your appreciation of your loved ones?
2. Love thinking is caring! How well and often do you think caring thoughts about what your loved ones are experiencing, feeling, involved in, and what they find important?
3. Love thinking is sharing! Do you ponder what and how to share yourself with your loved ones? Do you think about how to help your loved ones share themselves with you? Do you think about what your loved ones share with you?
4. Love thinking is kind! Are the thoughts you have of your loved ones filled with kindness? Do you give thought to how to show kindness?
5. Love thinking is affirmational! Do you focus your thoughts on what is good and admirable about your loved ones. Do you value not only what your loved ones do but their essence as well? Do you think about how to convey that you highly value and cheer for the success of your loved ones?
6. Love thinking is appropriately protective! Is safeguarding those you love part of your concern and contemplations? Is thought given to not being overly protective?
7. Love thinking is thankful! Concerning your loved ones are you frequently thinking thankfully about what they do and are? Are you good at thinking about how to express your thankfulness?
8. Love thinking is emotional! Do you give thought to the many emotions love brings into our lives? Do you try to understand the emotions of your loved ones as well as your own emotions? Are you good at figuring out the -guidance messages’ in yours and others’ emotions? In relating with love does your thinking work well with your emotions?
9. Love thinking is joyous! Do you just simply enjoy thinking about your loved ones? Does it cause you happiness to simply notice your loved ones’ way of being them self? Do you think pleasurably about your loved ones’ idiosyncrasies, oddities, and uniqueness?
10. Love thinking is studious! Do you study how to grow love, make love work, improve with love, give and get love better? Do you study your loved ones and how to best do love with them?
11. Love thinking is inspiring! Have you had the experience of being inspired, enriched and deeply benefitted by thinking about love in the ways just described? (If not keep thinking about love and we bet you will.)
12. Love thinking is intimate! Do you think about love in deeply personal, emotionally close and very private ways? Do you frequently and healthfully mix your love thinking with your sex thinking? Can you also connect thoughts about the passionate and the erotic with thoughts about spiritual love?
People who really think more about love often automatically do more about love. Unless their thinking is mistaken and inaccurate, those people are the ones more likely to experience and achieve more in the arenas of love. The reverse is also likely to be true. Those who don’t give love much thought are less likely to get good love results. So we encourage you to think a lot about love and especially how healthy, real love can be made to work, grow and improve lives.
As always – Go and Grow with Love
