September is the month of Labor Day, a symbol of the contributions laborers have made
for the strength, prosperity and health of our country. So, let us look at the idea of a
spiritual labor of love. A labor of love is when someone does something for the benefit of
others rather than material rewards. What if a labor of love is actually to heal and
transform your inner self for the good of humanity’s higher consciousness, then
letting the vibration of that transformation spread and help others to transcend into a
What would healing and transforming your inner self look like? It would most likely
involve breathing in spirit, the love and light of our Source. It may involve meditation for
focusing and clearing. How about doing some energy work? Helping transform and heal
your energy and those around you has a ripple effect of transforming humanity’s
energy and, therefore, consciousness. You can volunteer in an activity that promotes the
healing or serving of others without regard to gain for yourself – you will feel connected
and joyful. In fact, you can form a support group to focus on the
healing/serving of others, and that energy is then amplified reflecting the increase in
energy that a group provides.
Try taking the time to visualize what love would look like in the world. Spiritual labor is
often on the inside and vibrated outward, changing and transforming our environment,
and when we include others in our vision, the energy expands exponentially –
transforming the world. One of the best sources for change is with our heart and mind
connecting with our spirit. This combination is so powerful that it can easily change the
world around us. It just does not look like “labor”, yet can be even more powerful
than manual labor.
We are all connected. So when one of us heals and transforms our energy or help others
do so, we all benefit and move towards humanity’s self-actualization as a whole. We
can all participate in a soulful labor of love – with joy. We can all do our part in this mass
endeavor. And, feel – be – the divine joy, love and peace we are at our core, our soul level
– we are just letting the vibration spread a little!
Quote of the month:
Hard work is painful when life is devoid of purpose.
But when you live for something greater than yourself
and the gratification of your own ego,
then hard work becomes a labor of love.
