OUR LOVE LANGUAGE
End of one month, beginning of another. OUR LOVE LANGUAGE.
Once upon a time there were two countries, at war with each other. In order to make peace after many years of conflict, they decided to build a bridge across the ocean. But because they never learned each other’s language properly, they could never agree on the details, so the two halves of the bridge they started to build never met. To this day the bridge extends far into the ocean from both sides, and simply ends half-way, miles in the wrong direction from the meeting point.
THE POWER OF LANGUAGE
Language is not only the words and tone of voice that come out of our mouth, language is our energy. Our energy is what we embody and embrace which influences our body language, our style, our likes and dislikes. Our attraction from and with. It is our love. Language is our agreements.
Our agreements ultimately come down to our own unique language to ourselves, our own love for who are. How we embody and embrace ourselves. What we say to ourselves. How we stand in our own authentic language, our truth, our stories, our energy. There are people we have met that don’t even need to speak a word and we already know their language, because we know their energy.
The outreaching of hands, the hug we did not expect, the leaning into a conversation, the presence we feel. The intent listening to understand. These are all languages. These are the greatest form of love languages – to provide an energy that allows another to stand their own unique energy.
When we are not in love and aligned with ourselves, our agreements become our biggest disagreements, our tone of voice changes, our words do not become our OWN words, our fears override our ambitions. Our energy is misplaced. Our bridges are never met.
Language is our touchstone from the deepest place we reside. It is our thoughts which co-create our energy, our agreements, and provide us a way of communicating all that is authentic to us and our meeting point with another.
With that, the quote of the month:
“The most significant conversations of our lives occur in silence.” – Simon Van Booy
