Expressing love is a high priority in the maintenance of loving another

Express Love – Do You Do It?

While it’s fantastic to be head over heels in a love relationship with someone or love a good friend for who they are, wouldn’t you agree it’s equally important to learn how best to express your love?

While my last article of ‘What Is Love’ was about the ingredients of what made up ‘love’, it’s vitally important we also take action and express and show our love for that other special person.

Winston Churchill  …  We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give

How do you express your love – or do you?

The wholeness of life is the expression of love, and actions and interactions we thread through our own life.

Oft times we internally use that old excuse of ‘Oh dear, I meant to do that but ran out of time’.

Sure, we all only have 24 hours in the day.

Knowing love makes up one of the most vital aspects in any relationship, shouldn’t we also get our head around having a specific strategy in how best to express your love to those we, ourselves, love?


Be Stingy

One way to look at a strategy is to decide who you need to be a little more stingy with your bucket of love expression.

You can still love an endless number of people.

It’s more around the distinction between the feeling and the expression of love.


What’s To Do Next Though?

My handy Mac Dictionary defines ‘attention’ as ‘the action of dealing with or taking special care of someone or something.

And the expression of love is exactly that – paying attention to someone with your attention, time, and focus.

Certainly, how you express love to someone entirely depends on the type of relationship you have too.

Bearing that in mind, think of the easy way in paying attention by using your five senses.


The Five Senses

Examples might include:

  • Use those ears to listen.
    • Be completely present with the other person.
  • Give a hug with that magical sense of touch.
    • Hold a hand, caress, or sexual expression
  • Taste or smell – hmm, I’ll let you figure out some interesting areas for those ☺
  • Eyes – undivided attention with watching another

  1. Thanks Martin for this article. How I express love is something I have become more conscious of in the last fortnight. I recently took part in something, not exactly a workshop that has shifted my way of living from being in my head to being in my heart. I focus my attention on experiencing the present moment. I have learnt that when you share love you give energy and in doing that you also gain energy/love for yourself! :)

    I guess the biggest difference is that I am more expressive and articulate. I choose to greet the day with an attitude that I love my life. I experience heaven on earth. I tell people how fantastic life is and what I love about them. I give more hugs. I comment more on what I am experiencing, which is generally more positive because I am not thinking … I am in flow and in touch with my soul and divine nature. My friends have all noted that I am a pleasure to be around, "a real sweetheart" and a lot of fun because there is more spontaneity.

    I love how my life has changed and is growing more as I practice making consiousness a constant part of my daily life. I trust that more people will awaken and become in touch with their souls and expressing love … I believe this is how we will create a perfect world of peace, love, light and harmony.

    Best wishes, with love Emily xx

  2. Great reminder, Martin – thank you.

    I know I use the excuse of being time poor more than I should and sometimes, that's all it is, an excuse for my failing when it really wasn't. Maybe that's something I'm just hiding behind. Well, I think it is now I typed it.

    I initially smiled on the dot point of taste and smell, immediately thinking of the sexual connitation. But you know what, those are under used senses, aren't they? Have you really pondered on the taste of a kiss? The smell of your partner? Of their hair? The smell of them laying next to you, even when they aren't there, I know my partner's smell which brings a smile to my face when I realise it.

    And then there's having the guts to tell them about it which has some powerful bonding and sharing qualities, don't you think?
