Hug Like You Mean It

Embrace your beloved as if this is the first and last moment you will share. In embracing with complete presence we release inhibition, judgement, self-constraint, self-consciousness and unchecked fear/s.

To embrace completely we must relinquish the need to control. To control the moment, the ‘outcome’, the other. To embrace sincerely is to bond, reunite, release fear, state your intention and be a beacon of trust and safety for all those you encounter.

To embrace fully, we must choose to release past and present pain, discomfort and tension. We must surrender to that very moment as if it is all that is and all that matters; as if it is the very last moment for our own unique expression to take physical form.

To embrace with depth and substance we must allow ourselves to feel fully. To be vulnerable in our bodies and our emotions. We must add verbiage to what we are feeling and experiencing. To integrate our internal selves with our outward expression and feel the maximal impact of that beautiful and infinite moment.

To embrace with the heart we must know the heart – ours and our beloved’s. To know the heart is to journey deep in to the chasms of possibility and human actualization. It is to ask confidently, to be familiar, to be curious, to be concerned, to be authentic and to be open.

To embrace with childlike wonder and true excitement is to express immersive empowerment and faith in one’s ability to BE love. To allow the entire spectrum of emotion to be both felt and expressed.

To embrace with reverence is to honour and be humbled to your lover and by your LOVING. Men, to choose to bow in humility to your beloved is one of the greatest gifts you can bestow upon your intertwined journeys. Women, to gift your man with your earnest admiration and forgiveness is immensely powerful, soul connecting and enduring.

To embrace with completeness and wholeness is to believe in connection, the art of subtle endearment and cosmic awareness. To not be swayed by internal fracture, past trauma’s or the ignorance of the stubborn ego.

To embrace with a trusting spirit is to surrender to our own innate wisdom and know we are being guided towards deeper levels and expressions of wholeness.

To hold this space and be continuously devoted to being this person is a life worth living, embodying and of course, worth embracing. In simple terms – just hug and hug like nothing else matters.

One is always glad to be of service.

Healthy Intimacy Vs. Unhealthy Intimacy

We all yearn for connection, touch, understanding and a wanting to be seen. We often create barriers to this level of trusted connection due to certain traumatic or painful experiences we have had and the beliefs we have then formed around these experiences.

Man

Thousands of years of compounded behaviour has resulted in the unhealthy and extreme posture and dominant masculine expression rampant in the majority of men today. By describing accurately who we have been is not perpetuating a myth or holding ‘ourselves back’. We are holding ourselves back by fracturing our psyche by not looking at ourselves from a place of holism…

The Expansive Masculine

When my mother sent me some old pictures of when I was child, my heart opened and memories came flooding back to me. I saw an innocent little boy with a massive smile on his face.

Yet the happy times were outweighed massively by the sadness and fear I experienced. Overtime that little boy learned that closing down his heart was the best way to protect himself. Then he grew up to be a man that was shut down because of a his pain.

The Truthful Gaze

It can be difficult to honor ourselves. Self-love and self-honoring haven’t been a priority for the collective. We have become more accustomed to obsessing as opposed to healthy honor and worship of others instead of ourselves.

What if we could use the act of HEALTHY worship of another to provide us with deep insight in to our own worth? What if the healthy, non-attached, compassionate, wise and cosmic worship of another allowed us to see our worthiness and value?

The Divide Between True Intimacy

“Proximity draws us close, near and bonds us. To be proximate to each other, we must remove the unconscious blockages that Dyer is from stepping in to connected and expansive presence”…
