How to feel so much love, and yet still be productive
Last semester, especially during the month of November, I was able to feel so much love for no reason other then the fact I wanted to feel all of that love. It was amazing, I could be alone, and yet just feel so much love. I absolutely loved it, and I dwelled in this state as much as possible.
However, I found that when I was in this state, I didn't care at all about being productive and doing anything. I'd sometime just sit there, and experience in amazement all of this loving emotion and be so high on that emotion.
This state of not being productive is clearly not good for an MBA student like myself . So for the last few weeks of my semester, when I started to have a huge amount of projects due and exams coming up, I purposely disconnected and stopped channeling all of that love energy so that I could concentrate and be productive. I hated it, and I suffered for it, but I managed to do it, and get good grades.
Then during my winter break, my focus was on other things and I never focused on getting into that all-loving state of being. Now I'm back in school, and I'm being (and aiming) to be super-productive.
I really miss now that state where I just feel so much love energy flowing through myself. However, I'm finding myself unable to really feel loving - to channel that love energy as I did. I think a big part of me is very concerned that if I do so, I might go back into that vegetative state I found myself part of the time last semester. If I do that, then my very important goals to do well in my MBA is out the door.
Any suggestions on how I can do this? What am I missing/doing wrong here? How can I channel so much love in me, and feel so much love without just wanting to sit there in amazement and become totally non-productive?

When you feel great and are in the present moment rather than dwelling on your past or thinking about the future, you get into the flow of life.
That's what happened to you when you felt love for everyone.
However, by working hard and struggling you broke this great connection with the universe and started to go against the flow.
This was because your mind convinced you that only through hard work and struggle you will be able to complete your projects well. This is, of course, not the case.
When you are in the present moment and feel joy and love, all problems sort themselves out with little or no action on your part.
But when you start fighting against some problem, you only give more life to it and thus suffer the negative consequences.
So my advice is to live in the present moment and never dwell on negative thoughts. Never worry about things that are yet to come. When they do come, acknowledge, but not fight, them. Soon you will be able to see how to solve this problem.

Hi Seeker 5,
Isn't love the absolute coolest energy to feel!!!
Firstly, congrats at begin able to open yourself to truly feel. What you are feeling is both 'your' and 'life's' base.
Now the thing is that we grow up scared to feel our pain and build a wall so we can only feel limited things. We are not use to feeling love which is an amazingly strong energy and that's why it overwhelms us.
You may only be feeling your own love energy (your true self/spirit/etc), or unknowingly connecting and sharing love energy with one of your SoulMates, this can be very overwhelming.
Anyway, how to keep functioning while you get use to love energy (then it will just make you smile, skip instead of walk and actually make you more productive) merely involves practice.
I'm going to suggest a couple of things so you can tweak and find what suits you.
Get use to feeling generally
Most people think they already do feel, but see how this goes. Do you like showering? Why? Have you ever thought or felt any more than rushing through it and making sure you don't smell? If the act of showering is seen as a chore or merely one of those daily activities you have to undertake, you have indeed missed feeling this experience for its own sake.
Without opening to feel the extreme of love energy, practice feeling the sensations of all different activities.
Reawakening our innate ability to feel freely at all times, changes our lives dramatically. And in your case will build your tolerance of feeling, so love energy won't be such a shock to your system.
Allow yourself to feel it freely
Make time each day to float in love. When you are relaxing in bed is a great time to float in the world of love as you drift of to sleep.
The more you feel it, the more comfortable it will be and less overwhelming.
Tell yourself how to feel
Initially love energy is too strong for you to cope with, but you don't want it to go away so stop blocking it, but when it comes up at inconvenient times talk to it. Saying something like "I love to feel you but am not use to this feeling yet, I will let you come up fully "tonight at home etc."
This is a technique to silence mind chatter until you are ready to do the healing work with it, and should work just fine with energy.
If you get really zapped at a bad time like during a test, and can't settle it you can come straight back into your logical brain mind by doing some logical thinking. Say the 6 times table forwards and backwards (1 x 6 = 6....) a couple of times, or do some math sums.
Whatever you do, know this energy is life energy and the most special there is. As you get use to it you can go outside and feel the birds and trees and hear their messages. You can lay down in bed and float off to sleep in love, and then wake up with love as the first thing you feel. You can smile all day long and love life.
Play with it and you will get use to it very quickly until one day it feels as normal as getting dressed. You and your life then become love.
Enjoy your journey!
