What’s the meaning of life?

Do you ever find yourself asking yourself – whats the point of life?  Not in a depressive, despondent way but in a ‘Why am I here?’ and ‘What am I doing?’

From a young age I have frequently pondered on the meaning of life.  Don’t worry, I’m not going to pretend that I have come up with the answer to that unanswerable question!

However, on a recent break in beautiful southern Ireland (picture above),  I pondered the question:  Life – whats it all about? and what came to me was: LOVE.  That is the meaning of life!

It is about opening your heart energy centre, to fall in love with yourself, to fall in love with the world around you and all beings we share this beautiful planet with, to connect within to the love deep inside us, at our core, that ultimately we are; to express the love consciousness that we emerged from that is the universal consciousness; and to radiate this out to the world.  To be the conductor of love between the heavens (the universal energy field) and the earth we live on.

Raising your loving energy vibration in whatever way that works for you and to then radiate this love out in ripples to the world around you.

“I have compiled a list of some suggested activities to open your heart and help you feel more loving:

  • Feeling and expressing gratitude for all the blessings in your life.  There is always something you can feel thankful for.  This is my personal biggest heart centre opener.
  • Hanging out with babies and young children when they are calm and peaceful: you can feel the love emanating from them. They are amazing for helping you to be very present and in the moment.
  • Watching videos of cats, dogs or other animals having fun and playing around.
  • Watching videos of people rescuing animals and the transformation the animals undergo.
  • Watching videos of babies laughing – real belly laughs.
  • Watching uplifting films, romantic comedies and comedies.
  • Listening to emotive, upbeat and/or uplifting music
  • Spending time with animals: they are loving, intuitive and grounded.  Having pets can be incredibly healing.  Spend time stroking and cuddling them.
  • Physical intimacy with your partner.
  • Helping, being of service and giving to others: this can help you emotionally just as much as it is helping the other person.
  • Thinking of the people you love.
  • Offering your support to someone in need.
  • Performing random acts of kindness.
  • Sending love, healing and blessings silently to people you feel are in need.
  • Cuddling: cuddling releases serotonin, oxytocin and dopamine, the happy hormones.  Try it out…”
