In February, the audience gathered to listen to Eva Ruiz’ talk entitled The Language of Love, followed by networking, drinks and great conversations.
In her talk, Eva explored the power of words and how to become more aware of them. She pointed out that there is a link between words and emotions, and explained how she uses this link to help her clients change their narrative around the relationship with themselves, others and life.
She encouraged the audience to think about the following questions:
- How could the language you use affect your life?
- How is that language affecting the people around you?
- What are the conversations you have with yourself?
- Do you have conversations of love?
- How do you then speak love onto others?
Eva kicked off with a strong statement: you are the essence of love in a physical body. When you are at the highest, most wonderful frequency (7th heaven or Cloud 9), what you feel is the energy of love.
She went on by saying that words are also an energy, they provoke a vibration in each one of us. Therefore, when we communicate with the energy of love, the words we use project that energy.
Just think of Nelson Mandela, Mother Theresa or Martin Luther King – they all spoke with this energy, and people follow them to this day not just for their words, but through their energy and love.
Loving yourself is being aligned with that energy – Eva explains.
Questions like “Am I good enough?” however, come from the ego. The ego tries to put everything into boxes. We always have a choice of showing up as either the essence of love, or the ego. We live in ego, but we are the essence of love.
It’s a lot easier to love another person than to love ourselves.
Eva shared openly how she struggled with self harm from her teens. Affirmations like saying “I love you” in the mirror didn’t seem to make much of a difference – she would cry and feel it wasn’t working.
It took her years to realise that people who don’t love themselves cannot accept praise – it just doesn’t mean anything to them.
The energy of words is powerful and that is why we need to be aware of how we speak to ourselves and to others.
Seeing different ways of living can give you the freedom to choose to do things differently. That’s what Eva now promotes through her work.
