How do you define love?
What type(s) of love* would you like to receive more of?
Philia (Affectionate Love): love without romantic attraction and occurs between friends or family members. It occurs when both people share the same values and respect each other — it’s commonly referred to as “brotherly love".
Pragma (Enduring Love): a unique bonded love that matures over many years. It’s an everlasting love between a couple that chooses to put equal effort into their relationship. Commitment and dedication are required to reach “Pragma.” Instead of “falling in love,” you are “standing in love” with the partner you want by your side indefinitely.
Storge (Familiar Love): a naturally occurring love rooted in parents and children, as well as best friends. It’s an infinite love built upon acceptance and deep emotional connection. This love comes easily and immediately in parent and child relationships.
Eros (Romantic Love): a primal love that comes as a natural instinct for most people. It’s a passionate love displayed through physical affection. These romantic behaviors include, but are not limited to, kissing, hugging and holding hands. This love is a desire for another person’s physical body.
Ludus (Playful Love): a child-like and flirtatious love commonly found in the beginning stages of a relationship (a.k.a. the honeymoon stage). This type of love consists of teasing, playful motives and laughter between two people. Although common in young couples, older couples who strive for this love find a more rewarding relationship.
Philautia (Self Love): a healthy form of love where you recognize your self-worth and don’t ignore your personal needs. Self-love begins with acknowledging your responsibility for your well-being. It’s challenging to exemplify the outbound types of love because you can’t offer what you don’t have.
Agape (Selfless Love): the highest level of love to offer. It’s given without any expectations of receiving anything in return. Offering Agape is a decision to spread love in any circumstances — including destructive situations. Agape is not a physical act, it’s a feeling, but acts of self-love can elicit Agape since self-monitoring leads to results.
*The exclusion of Mania - Obsessive Love is intentional. For this exercise you are encouraged to focus on healthy expressions of love.
What makes you feel loved?
How do you currently express your love for others? Would you change anything about how you outwardly express love?
How do you express your love for yourself? Would you change anything about how you inwardly express love?
When you think of how you would like to be loved, what song(s) do you hear or listen to?
Is there a quote that captures how you feel about love, want to be loved, or how you love others?
Please remember that there aren’t any right or wrong answers to these journal prompt questions. Your responses are unique to you and meant to serve as a guide on your manifestation journey.
May all desires in alignment with your highest good come true.
See you next month!
