The Explorations of Love IQ Matrix explores how to nurture more self-love and use it to receive more love from other people. It’s essentially a guide on how to improve your relationships, but not in the way you might imagine. Creating a loving relationship with another person is never really about the other person. It’s primarily about you and about the self-love you cultivate within your own heart. To put it another way, you cannot give love that you don’t ultimately have within yourself. You will perpetually resist receiving love unless you first accept the gift of self-love into your heart. This map breaks down how to truly love yourself, and then how to ultimately receive love from other people.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Explorations of Love mind map.
- Loving Yourself: The first three branches of this mind map explore all aspects of self-love. Some may think that loving oneself is a little strange, like 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 succumb to playing the victim when our relationships go through a rough patch. We are, instead, free to give love fully to another person. Subsequently, our focus is directed towards improving the relationship and not on working through personal insecurities.
- Receiving Love: The final branch of this map looks at what we must do to open our hearts to receive love from another person. This might seem straightforward on the surface. However, opening one’s heart to love is not always easy. It can, in fact, be next to impossible if there is no self-love, to begin with. This branch walks you through what to do to open your heart to receiving more love from another person.
This map provides a roadmap and framework for finding more self-love and for improving your relationships. Referencing it regularly and committing it to memory will help you to embed these concepts and ideas into your subconscious mind.
A mind map, of course, does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you try to establish new habits of thought and behavior. It brings together key concepts and ideas that help your brain to fully integrate and process this information. The brain, subsequently, rewires itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s an ideal tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your heart, and you will progressively discover the love you’ve always longed for. You will first, find this love within yourself. That energy will then allow you to attract the love of another to share your heart.
