Today I’m honored to have a very special guest, Dr. Debra Reble, Intuitive Psychologist, back for a second time! Her post, “Being an Ambassador of Love” appeared on my blog back in September 2015.
Her new article, “How Loving Yourself Can Change the World” explains that being kind and loving toward yourself will result in you being more loving toward others. If we all were to harness the energy of self-love, it would shift the vibration of the world and create a kinder, more loving planet. You know this message resonates with me!
How Loving Yourself Can Change the World
By loving yourself wholeheartedly, you can change the world. You become a conduit for love when you fully embrace and express your true nature—which is, and has always been, love. The more you love yourself, the more you eliminate negativity, connect compassionately with others, and become ambassadors of love in the world.
Like dropping a pebble into a pond, loving yourself creates an energetic vibration that radiates outward from your heart center and shifts everyone and everything in its path. When you emanate the highest frequency of love, you not only receive the benefits of the high vibration, but also raise the vibration of others around you. People emitting lower frequencies will rise to the occasion when in your presence by matching that higher frequency.
When you sustain self-love and compassion by being kind, nonjudgmental, and nonreactive—especially when you struggle, make mistakes, or feel unworthy—you are more likely to behave this way toward others. Such positive behavior generates universal love, inner peace, and spiritual attunement with everyone and everything.
This ripple of love begins by accepting all parts of yourself without reservation, no matter how you feel about them. If you are unwilling to do this for yourself, you cannot expect others to do it for you, and you certainly cannot do it for others.
You can wake up in the morning loving yourself, even when faced with the most challenging situations or when you feel tired or uninspired. Focus on the aspects of yourself you love rather than on those you dislike. Just imagine how one moment of self-compassion can change your entire day, and now consider how such moments, repeated over and over, could change your life and the lives of others.
Another way to foster self-love and change our world is by eliminating all of the violent thoughts, words, and actions we inflict upon ourselves. Many of us move through our days berating, shaming, and terrorizing ourselves with our thoughts in ways we would never express to anyone we love. Self-love must be the source from which all our thoughts, words, and choices come from and flow into the world.
Whether it’s a sunny day or a cloudy day, it’s essential you sustain positive thoughts, words, and energy flow. You can pause frequently as you move through any challenging situation so that you remain consciously aware of yourself, your environment, and any reactions that may arise. In this way, you not only soothe your own anger and anxiety, but refrain from doing harm to others through your reaction. In fact, simply by practicing self-love, you can leave whatever space you’re in charged with more positive energy than it contained when you arrived.
We must constantly release anyone or anything that impedes the flow of love within us, and restore peace and harmony in all aspects of our lives. When we harbor resentment, worry excessively, become angry, or feel stressed, we block the flow of energy in our bodies, especially our heart centers, and diminish our ability to express self-love to transform the world.
Begin your day by initiating self-love. Close your eyes, place a hand on the center of your chest, and focus your attention on your heart. Radiate love in the form of gratitude or compassion to yourself and then direct it out from toward others.
If as many of us as possible harnessed the energy of self-love and shifted our negative thoughts and emotions to positive ones, we would have the greatest transformational power our world ever created. Our hearts emanate a harmonic electromagnetic energy field that positively impacts all living beings and our environment. It is possible to do this simply through radiating love to ourselves and then out from our hearts, one love beam at a time. Such love beams can shift the energy of all negativity and bring about the highest and best good for all.
When you choose to love, respect, and preciously care for yourself, you set the tone for others to do the same. Practicing at least one act of kindness toward yourself every day can sustain happiness, well-being, and self-love, while giving you more energy to serve others.
When we emanate self-love, we transcend to our highest level of soul potential. We perform better at work, are more creative, are healthier, and impact our world in a positive way. It is time we realize that we are change agents of love. To transform our planet, we must elevate our vibration and seed the environment with droplets of love. By loving ourselves, we can live in harmony with nature, conserve our earth and its inhabitants, and create a universal consciousness of love.

- In a large online writing community, the “Inner Editor” dominated too many conversations.
- In parenting groups, participants spoke of the “Inner Bully” and, sadly, sometimes of the “Inner Abuser.”
- And, consulting to addiction treatment programs I heard a lot of chatter about “The Addict in the Attic.”
Today I’m excited to share my friend Debra Reble’s wonderful post about choosing to express love unconditionally, through acts of kindness and compassion to all. She believes, as do I, that these acts, when multiplied, can transform the world! Thanks, Debra, for being love personified!
Being an Ambassador of Love
Forget the nonsense of there and here, race, nation, religion, starting point, and destination. You are soul, and you are love.
Being an ambassador of love means broadcasting love in all interactions with others for our own benefit and that of humanity. Love must be the motivation for everything we think, say, and do. Using our power as beings of love helps us reach our fullest soul potential and inspires others to reach theirs, thereby making the world a better place.
We can travel as an ambassador of love by choosing to love unconditionally in every moment, radiating love each step of the way. Traveling as a love ambassador, we can make the places through which we move, whether it is our home, workplace, village, or country, better by our caring thoughts and positive energies. Even a radiant smile can change someone’s day. As Ram Dass said, “I would like my life to be a statement of compassion and where it isn’t that’s where my work lies.” Taking these words to heart, when friends, family, or strangers visit, I prepare their favorite foods, fill their room with flowers, and put beautiful linens on their bed, along with a welcome note to let them know they are appreciated. Through such acts of kindness and compassion, I transform my home into a loving sacred space. Imagine these small acts of love when multiplied by millions could transform the world.
In the midst of our chaotic world, we can be an ambassador of love by energetically creating peace, accessing love, and inviting others to meet us in this sacred space. For instance, at the family dinner table or at a party we can practice drawing people into that space through our intention and by softening our gaze, quieting our voice, and slowing down the pace at which we move and speak. Even in silence, we can offer our whole selves to the experience by opening our heart and connecting to them. By blessing the space with our presence, we become an emanating field of love.
We can wake up in the morning with the intention to sow seeds of love everywhere we go. This can mean something as small as taking a moment to be grateful for a smile from a stranger, acknowledging a homeless person by making eye contact, or blessing the people who made our car before we travel. As we move through our day, we can maintain an open heart and express unconditional love no matter where we are, who we are with, or what we are doing. Keeping our thoughts nonjudgmental, our words kind, and our choices compassionate, we create a sense of universal love and spiritual attunement with everyone and everything.
Through such energetic exchanges of love, we realize that we have an infinite amount of creational energy to share and an untapped soul potential to manifest whatever we need or desire. Acknowledging the blessings we already have in life helps shift our mind-set of scarcity we may harbor and opens us to intentions of abundance. These energetic exchanges of love generate more positive energy and multiply exponentially when our intentions are aligned for a greater good.
Every thought, feeling, word, and action we put forth is a memo to the universe through invisible vibrations of energy connecting to everyone and everything. In other words, we keep loving, positive energy in circulation by what we think, feel, say, and do, and the universe conspires with us. As a result of this spiritual law of circulation, we naturally project love out into the world.
