MAGIC PASSION LOVE© & KINDNESS
As we all know, life can feel very overwhelming and stressful. If we want to move through this moment in time, we must overcome our insecurities and learn to trust ourselves and each other. This is scary; however, it is necessary. It’s affirming to observe that more and more people are stepping up and taking responsibility to live by positive values. With more people choosing to be kinder to each other, the easier it is for more people to follow their examples in making this choice. Being kind is a choice. Making the choice to be kind is easier when you allow your magic, feel the passion in others, and live our love (which, by the way, is the most powerful energy source on this planet.)
There are many important values to incorporate in your life and kindness is one that truly makes the world a better place. It makes people feel happy, supported and loved and the result is FEELING GOOD! The most important person to be kind to is yourself. One more time, keep in mind the importance of being kind to yourself as often as possible.
Kindness is a value that activates Magic Passion Love©. Magic Passion Love© (MPL) is a renewable, sustainable, and positive energy source found within us. When you allow your magic, feel your passion, and live your love – you feel good. When you share your MPL, the results can be astonishing!
There is an amazing lyric in the song, “Gentle with Myself” by Karen Drucker, “I will go as fast as the slowest part of me can go.” As you navigate through the changes and challenges happening in your life and around you, be mindful of how much pressure you are putting on yourself. When you feel drained, remember MPL as a renewable and sustainable positive energy source within you.
Once you treat yourself with kindness, it is easier to be kind to others. Kindness is contagious, and when people are kind to each other, it creates a ripple effect of positivity. Imagine what we can manifest with more positive energy?
Scientific studies have proven the positive effects of being a kind person. Being kind is linked to boosting oxytocin and dopamine, and it can also increase serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps regulate mood. “We all seek a path to happiness,” says Dr. Waguih William IsHak, a professor of psychiatry at Cedars-Sinai. “Practicing kindness toward others is one we know works. ‘The trick you need to know: Acts of kindness have to be repeated. Biochemically, you can’t live on the 3-to-4-minute oxytocin boost that comes from a single act.’
Additional benefits of kindness include:
- Kindness can make people feel good.
- Kindness can reduce stress and anxiety as well as physical pain.
- Kindness can improve personal and professional relationships.
- Kindness can build community.
Kindness is not just a value, but a way of life, a path that we can choose to follow in our interactions with others. When we choose kindness, we open ourselves up to a world of possibility, where anything is possible, and love can flourish.
Kindness is something that everyone can do, and it doesn’t cost anything. It’s a simple way to make a big difference in the world. So, the next time you have the opportunity to be kind, take it! You never know how much it might mean to someone.
