The Explorations of Love IQ Matrix will help you to better understand the power of self-love and how it can be used to open your heart to receiving more love from others. This IQ Matrix provides you with guidelines that will help improve your relationships with others, however probably not in the way you imagine. Creating a loving relationship with another person is really never about the other person, it’s primarily about you and about the self-love you cultivate within your heart. To put it another way, you simply cannot just give love that you don’t have, and you will perpetually resist receiving love unless you first accept the gift of self-love into your heart.
Here is a quick break down of each branch of the Explorations of Love IQ Matrix:
- Loving Yourself: The first three branches of this IQ Matrix explore all aspects of self-love. Some may think that loving oneself is a little strange — a self-absorbing act. But this couldn’t be further from the truth. To love oneself is to accept yourself fully despite your flaws, weaknesses or limitations. It’s only when we lovingly accept ourselves as we are that we free ourselves to accept the love of another into our hearts. Self-love brings with it greater self-confidence and self-esteem. With these in our pocket we are no longer self-conscious or fall prey to victim mentality when our relationships go through a rough patch. Instead we are free to give love fully to the another person. Our focus is on improving the relationship and not on working through our own personal issues and inadequacies.
- Receiving Love: The final branch looks at what we must do to open our hearts to receive love from another. This might seem straightforward on the surface, however opening one’s heart to love is not always easy. In fact, it can be next to impossible if there is no self-love to begin with. This branch walks you through what you can do to open your heart to receiving more love from another.
Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your heart, and you will progressively find the love you desire to experience in this lifetime. You will find this love first within yourself, and then that energy will allow you to attract the love of another to share your heart. However, the love of another will only be as strong as the self-love you cultivate for yourself. One simply cannot exist without the other. It’s a rule of life, it’s a universal law. It can be no other way.
