#SpiritChat is a journey into friendship, community, and the exploration of the spirit within. All of us who’ve become Sunday regulars have found support for our journey within this community. Years ago when I decided to actively heal from early life chaos and trauma, I consciously made a commitment to forgive and find a better, happier way to live. At age seventeen, when I left home for college, I chose to make love a central theme in my life.
Since that time I’ve become an educator, a mental health therapist, embraced my natural intuition, and my talents for helping others to overcome their inner demons. I am dedicated to living a mindful, compassionate, loving life. What a surprise to find myself asking these three questions: Are you choosing Love? Do you have enough love in your life to create a fulfilling happy life? Are you content?
Early December 2015 my friend Joan Kappes asked me and another friend (Denna J.Shelton) to support her new project. She’d already begun Tweeting with the hashtag #IAmChoosingLove and wanted us to join her as partners in building a community “creating awareness that we always have the choice to love”. Participating felt important, but I didn’t fully understand what was about to happen within me.
My journey deepened. After two or three days of Tweeting #IAmChoosingLove I was bubbling over with positive feelings. I felt good! I felt happy. My heart was opening in a new way. Speaking about my choice to love in this way created an inner expansion that felt magical. I was gaining insight into the true nature of unconditional no strings attached love and the positive consequences of declaring my intention to a world-wide audience.
Because of all of our #IAmChoosingLove Tweets I am less likely to be critical with myself or anyone else. I find myself in a constant state of renewal. I am more in touch with the anger lurking deep within, yet I feel increasingly more care-free. I now use the same hashtag on Facebook and in my writing, and I’m finding ways to introduce others to the experience. #IAmChoosingLove now has a Pinterest board to share photo quotes and Tweets http://www.Pinterest.com/JanetNestor. You might find your picture quotes there if you Tweet with us.
Suddenly 2016 is no longer just a new year; it is a new way of being.
I hope that you choose to engage in our experiment. Tweet with us – @Joan_Kappes, @JanetNestor and @TwentyGems – and add your wisdom, insight, and humor to the steady flow of inspiration found at #IAmChoosinglove. Warning: Regularly Tweeting #IAmChoosingLove will change you in positive ways that will amaze you.
