SPIRITUAL WORSHIP USING THE 5 LOVE LANGUAGES

WHAT ARE THE 5 LOVE LANGUAGES?

In his wildly popular book, The Five Love Languages, Gary Chapman brilliantly identifies five distinct ways we both perceive love being given to us and how we communicate love towards others. It can be a huge “a-ha” moment when you realize how it is you see actions as either super loving or neutral. This book, for me, and so many others, was a game-changer. The five love languages as outlined in the book, are:

  1. Words of Affirmation
  2. Acts of Service
  3. Gift Giving
  4. Physical Touch
  5. Quality Time

You can be solidly one from this list, or a combination of them with one that stands out as the thing that truly makes you feel like you are wrapped up in a big hug, seen and appreciated, and just fully…..loved!

ARE THE 5 LOVE LANGUAGES BIBLICAL?

Even though Gary Chapman is a Christian author and he draws from his faith while teaching his readers about the five love languages, love is a universal concept. Love is God. God is love. And this can be any sacred title you use that feels most aligned to what spiritual source you feel most connected to.

What IS biblical, as well as spiritual, is continual communication and acknowledgment of the Creator through a daily conversation with the Divine, which we call prayer, and a daily expression of gratitude, which we call worship.

Worship is the act of giving yourself to God, to Creator, letting go of your sorrows, letting go of your worries, and trusting that if you surrender, you will always be supported.

Just like we can use the 5 Love Languages to deepen our relationship with all the people around us, we can also use the 5 Love Languages to deepen our connection with our Creator!

Let’s go through all 5 Love Languages together and see how we can use them to connect with God/Creator/Divine so we can be in a perpetual state of joyful worship and gratitude!

LOVE LANGUAGE #1: WORDS OF AFFIRMATION

When we think of words of affirmation, this can be done through prayer and giving thanks for what you are being given and how God, Creator is supporting you. So for words of affirmation, you can think about:

  • Having a daily prayer mediation
  • Praying throughout the entire day
  • Affirmations acknowledging the loving support and guidance you receive

Words of affirmation are really, really big. But how do you do that? Well, one, you can just simply give thanks. Just say,” Thank you, God, for everything you provide me. Thank you for continuing to support me, and thank you for taking away my sorrows. I am so grateful and I want to give back to you. So thank you. Allow me to be of service directly in the way that you would love for me to be of service.”

I'm ending that prayer with, “Direct me in the way to be of service.” This worship is giving yourself to Creator, to God, to divinity, and that's through your words, deeds, thoughts, and actions.

By saying, “Allow me to be of service,” this is saying, “God, direct me how I can help you, direct me how I can give back.”

LOVE LANGUAGE #2: ACTS OF SERVICE

My main love language is Acts of Service. This one is huge in my life. When someone does something for me, I can immediately sense a beautiful feeling of peace and love pouring over me and my heart just exudes gratitude for this loving-kindness.

Acts of service is also one of the simplest ways to acknowledge the love languages of God because the Creator is always doing something for us. Always. We can easily receive love from Source in this way, but we can also GIVE BACK to God in the same way!

Acts of service doesn't necessarily mean going to church and giving money to the church.

Acts of service could be you doing something kind for someone in your community, giving back to your community in some way, shape, or form, or giving to causes that you are inspired by, that you want to help, that you want to serve. These are acts of service.

I have causes that are near and dear to my heart that I give back to and there are causes I see my friends and loved ones giving back to that mean something special to them. There could be so many causes that pull on our heartstrings that we couldn’t possibly give to them all, but what we can do is cheerlead those around us who can give to those important missions while we give our energy to our own.

Supporting others, and cheering them on, while they support the causes close to their hearts is also an act of service.

There are endless ways to show God our gratitude and love through acts of service. Globally, in our local community, or even in our own backyard. An act of service doesn't have to be to a major corporation, cause, or event in your community. It could be someone in need in your community and you feel compelled to help that person, individually.

Recognize that you're making a huge difference by just giving back to at least one cause or doing an act of kindness for someone in your community. It doesn't have to be major, big causes or big disasters that you're giving back to.

LOVE LANGUAGE #3: GIFT GIVING

Gift-giving is one of the ways that the 5 Love Languages can be two for one! By giving a gift to someone, you are also performing an act of service. I love this! Perhaps you are giving money to a cause you deeply care about, or a meal to someone in need. Anytime you are giving a gift to someone here in the physical world, you are also giving that gift to the Creator!

Gift-giving could also be something that you are giving to recognize the power of God, the omnipresence within you by giving a gift to God. That could be a gift like flowers that you put on your altar to just give thanks, to recognize the beauty or a gift that you are inspired to give back to the community.

Recently, I received the most amazing gift from one of my clients. She gave me a beautiful stone with an imprint of an angel, one of God’s helpers; a symbol of worship that I treasure and am so grateful for. This is a symbol of spiritual worship to me. She gave it as a gift to me, but it's also her worshiping something bigger than herself. It's recognizing that omnipresence within herself as well. This act of gift-giving to one of the Divine’s creations was an act of worship, recognizing the Creator’s desire to love and protect the creation.

Giving gifts to God could be:

  • Bringing some food to the homeless shelter or to a homeless person that you're compelled to give food to
  • Doing acts of kindness throughout the day and telling God, “I do these in your name, for you.”
  • Sending a loving message of encouragement to a friend
  • A simple smile for someone who will receive it with love and gratitude

 

LOVE LANGUAGE #4: PHYSICAL TOUCH

Now, you’re probably thinking like, "How do I physically touch God Creator?" Well, remember, God, the Creator dwells within you. God dwells within everything. You can touch God by just simply touching your heart and breathing in that presence and just saying:

"God, thank you. I love feeling your presence around me and I want to hug you back. Thank you. I hug you with my heart, I hug you with my mind, I hug you with my words, I hug you with my actions, I hug you with my deeds. I am so grateful. Thank you. I love you. Thank you."

And then you can just imagine yourself giving Creator, that divine omnipresence within you a hug.

And because God dwells within everything, you can actually go and physically touch the earth, Gaia, Mother Nature. Touching the earth is also the act of touching God, and worshipping Him through the things that God has created for us to live in this atmosphere, in this shell, our human shell. We are constantly touching God in some way, shape, or form just by breathing, just by our physical touch itself.

Touching the earth is also the act of touching God and worshipping Him.

LOVE LANGUAGE #5: QUALITY TIME

Lastly, the fifth Love Language is Quality Time. Quality Time is the very act of everything that we're doing in all five love languages. By just giving back, by physically touching God, by doing acts of service, by words of affirmations we are spending quality time.

By praying, by doing our spiritual practices, we're spending quality time with our Creator. Making time to meditate every day is spending time with God because in meditation we are taking the time to listen to the answers to our prayers. By just breathing and taking a short break and acknowledging God, acknowledging Creator, you're actually spending quality time with our Creator.

Make time for this because the more that you make time for this, the more that you're going to change your frequency, and the more that you change your frequency, the more that you're going to start seeing changes in your life occur.

Quality time is the very act of everything that we're doing in all five love languages.

THE POWER OF WORSHIP

Worship allows you to really stand in your power, to stand in your divinity, and to recognize your divinity so that you can spread love and peace throughout the world as well. And that love and peace make a bigger impact than what you think. Give yourself permission to worship. Use spiritual worship to feel better, because when you do, your vibration rises.

You do not have to have a super formal relationship with Creator. If you feel that that is the best way for you to connect, do that. But if it is preventing you from fully just allowing yourself to receive and give and do your practices, allow it to be less formal. Creator will always meet you where you are at. The key is to allow your relationship to be authentic so you can use the 5 Love Languages to assist you in worship.

Worship is giving yourself fully through your words, deeds, thoughts, and actions to this higher power that dwells within you.

So that you can recognize that power is not separate from you because we are not separate from it. We are whole and the more that we recognize that wholeness, the more that we can be of service and live our heaven on earth in this lifetime, in this present moment. And the more that you worship, the more that you give back, the more that you allow yourself to be fed with this love and you feed that love as well, the more you're going to see your reality change. You deserve it.

Full transcription of the episode:

Hello everyone. And I am so excited to have this fun twist on spiritual worship conversation with you today. I believe spiritual worship is so important. It does not have to be done at church. If you want to do it at church, that is great. But we can have spiritual worship throughout the day and I think that that's really important. And the twist that I'm going to put on it is using the Five Love Languages.

And if you're not familiar with the Five Love Languages, there's a book called The Five Love Languages and that is by Gary Chapman. He is an amazing author. I will link his book in the show notes below. This is not a paid sponsorship. I just love the Five Love Languages. I think it's really helpful in being in relationship with someone and it allows you to see how that other person feels love. It also gives you feedback on how you receive love as well. So if you're interested in checking out that book, definitely check it out. You can check it out on Audible or you can physically pick up the book or read the book as well.

This for me, gave me a really clear understanding of how I receive love. And I thought that thinking about how we can worship creator God, the Omnipresence gives us an idea of what that looks like throughout the day if we lean into the Five Love languages. And I am a big believer in worship can be done throughout the day. And worship is the act of giving yourself to God, to Creator, and letting go of your sorrows, letting go of your worries, and trusting that if you surrender, you will always be supported. And it's recognizing that support within you and it's recognizing that power within you.

And so worship allows you to really stand in your power, to stand in your divinity, to recognize your divinity so that you can spread love and peace throughout the world as well. And that love and peace make a bigger impact than what you think. And when people think world, you can make one impact on one person by just smiling and being kind, and that person makes a difference with ten other people. So remember, even if you don't think that you are making a difference, you are making a difference. Always be kind and lean into Creator. Give yourself permission to worship. Use spiritual worship to feel better, because when you do, your vibration rises.

So let's talk about what the Five Love Languages are and how we can use this as inspiration to use spiritual worship throughout our day and throughout the month so that we can, one, give love back to Creator, and then two, it can come back to us as well. Because remember, what you give out, you always receive back too. So the five love languages are acts of service, words of affirmation, quality time, physical touch, and gift-giving.

So when we think of words of affirmation, this can be done through prayer and giving thanks for what you are being given and how God Creator is supporting you. So words of affirmation, you can think about as prayer, having a daily prayer practice, praying throughout the day. It can also be affirmations as well. So words of affirmation is really, really big. So how do you do that? Well, one, you can just simply give thanks and just say, thank you, God, for everything you provide me. Thank you for continuing to support me, and thank you for taking away my sorrows. I am so grateful and I want to give back to you. So thank you. Allow me to be of service directly in the way that you would love for me to be of service. So I'm ending that prayer with direct me in the way to be of service. Now, worship is giving yourself to Creator, to God, to divinity, and that's through your words, deeds, thoughts, and actions. So by saying allow me to be of service, this is saying, God, direct me how I can help you, direct me how I can give back. And then that goes into the next love language, which is the Acts of Service.

And one of my love languages, how I receive love, is Acts of Service. It's actually three of them. There's a quiz online, you can go to his website and you can see what your love languages are as well. But mine is Acts of Service. Like, Acts of Service is really big. And so the way I receive love is if someone does an act of service for me and I'm just like, "oh my God, thank you so much for helping me with this." And so for God, for Creator, we can do acts of service. And acts of service doesn't necessarily mean going to church and giving money to the church.

Acts of service could be you doing something kind for someone in your community, you giving back to your community in some way, shape, or form, or giving back to causes that you are inspired by, that you want to help, that you want to serve. And those are acts of service. For me, I love giving back to women's shelters and crisis centers. I also love giving back to the mental health associations that do research and help fund mental health in the United States. And so those are some of the causes that I give back to you because I know that they are really near and dear to my heart and I want to support them in any way, shape, or form.

Now, acts of service can be done through time or an energy exchange. An energy exchange could be you're volunteering your time, you're offering some sort of service or money as well. And so this could be an act of service for you. Also, an active service doesn't have to be to a major corporation or a major cause or a major event in your community. It could be someone in need in your community and you feel compelled to help that person. I know someone in our mom's Facebook group was in a crisis and she was asking for some things that she was really needing for her family because she was in a crisis.

And for me, if I have those things that is going to be an act on service that I'm willing to assist in and it's not to go, "Hey, I'm doing a good job. God, are you watching me?" No. It's from the kindness of my heart and I want to give back. And so that act of service is huge. Not everybody has money or time. They have other things that they can give back to community that can be really helpful for someone in need.

So look at the things that you're really interested in making a difference in your community. And some people are meant to give back in small areas and when I mean small areas, I mean local communities. That's how they feel that they're going to be of the highest service is by giving back to their local community or in smaller communities that they're really interested in helping or communities that have had a natural disaster or something that's going on. For example, like if you're giving back to helping people in Ukraine because they're being displaced because of the war, that is an act of service that is a part of worship as well. So know that you can do something locally or you can do something on a global level as well.

I know some of my friends are very into giving back and protecting the Amazon. I want to protect the Amazon. I love that they're into that. I know that for me that's their part that they really shine in and so I love seeing that for them. For me, I have other causes that my heart is drawn to before that cause.

And so know that you might see a bunch of causes that you want to give back to but you're not able to give back to all of them. And so we cheerleader the ones that are giving back to those causes and communities that you love but you're drawn to a different community. We cheerlead the people that are helping those communities and we use our resources for the causes and the communities that feel in alignment with what we're doing at that moment in time. Know that that might also change. And I'm sharing this because there are so many causes and things that you are going to be drawn to give back to. Recognize that you're making a huge difference by just giving back to at least one cause or doing an act of kindness for someone in your community. It doesn't have to be major, big causes or big disasters that you're giving back to.

Also know that if a friend is in crisis and you're giving back to them, that is an act of service. You listening to that person is an act of service because you're going to be their sounding board. You might save their life by just listening to them. And that is really important because remember, Creator uses us in a way that we can channel special messages and special meaning for people or allow them to see things in a different light that they weren't able to see before. You do not have to think that you were gifted in this. Just you listening and holding space for someone makes a huge difference. And know that that is very much a part of spiritual worship because we are connecting with community and we are giving back to community as well.

So let's go to gift-giving next. So gift-giving, I love this, because gift-giving can be that you're doing an act of service by giving back some money to community. But also gift-giving could be something that you are giving to recognize the power of God, the omnipresence within you by giving a gift to God. And that could be a gift like flowers that you put on your altar to just give thanks, to recognize the beauty. That could also be a gift that you are inspired to give back to community. So you notice that some of them kind of play in with one another, but some of these love languages will inspire you to think differently about the way that you receive love. And so, if it seems like a repeat, it's not, because it's the way that you're going to perceive it as well. And to know that gift-giving can be in whatever way that you want to give a gift that is a representation of your worship to God.

And so, I'll give you an example. I had one of my just amazing clients, and they gave me this really beautiful, I don't know if you want to call it a worry stone, it's not a worry stone, but it's in the shape of a stone, and imprinted is an angel. And she gave me this. And it's a symbol of one of God's helpers. And so that right there is a symbol of spiritual worship to me. And she gave it as a gift to me, which I treasure and I love and I'm so grateful for. But it's also her worshiping something bigger than herself. And it's recognizing that omnipresence within herself as well. And that is a token of her worship. And it's a token that she's gifting to me to show me and to gift it to me in a way that allows me to recognize that I'm protected in some way, shape, or form from lower vibrational forces. And that this symbol of God, this helper of God who is an angel, is here to protect me as well. And so that little gift and that act of kindness go a long way.

But gift-giving could be bringing some food to the homeless shelter or giving some food to a homeless person that you're compelled to give food to. Know that that is a gift that you're giving back to the community, but you're also gifting things to God as well. And so you could gift and you can say, "Hey God, I'm worshipping you today by giving a gift of kindness to ten people today. I'm going to do ten kind things today." And it doesn't have to be that extreme. It could be really something simple, but it's just acknowledging like, "Hey God, this is how I'm going to worship you today. I'm going to give back gifts.” So there's that.

Now the next one is physical touch. Now, physical touch, you're probably thinking like, "Amy, how do I physically touch God Creator?" Well, remember, God Creator dwells within you. And so by you just simply touching your heart and breathing in that presence and just saying, "God, thank you. I love feeling your presence around me and I want to hug you back. Thank you. I hug you with my heart, I hug you with my mind, I hug you with my words, I hug you with my actions, I hug you with my deeds. I am so grateful. Thank you.I love you. Thank you." And then you can just imagine yourself giving Creator, that divine omnipresence within you a hug.

And remember, God dwells within everything. And so you can actually go and physically touch the earth. Go touch the earth. You're giving back to Gaia, you're giving back to Mother Nature. She'll hug you back too. Touching the earth is also the act of touching God, and it's also worshipping the things that God has created for us to live in this atmosphere, in this shell, our human shell. And we are constantly touching God in some way, shape, or form just by breathing, just by our physical touch itself. And we can recognize that through the breath as well. So doing some breathing exercises and physically feeling God Creator in the breath can be really helpful as well.

Now, the next five love languages, one of the five light languages: Quality Time. Now, quality time is the very act of everything that we're doing in the five love languages. By just giving back, by physically touching God, by doing acts of service, by words of affirmations we are spending quality time. By praying, by doing our spiritual practices, we're spending quality time with Creator. Making time to meditate every day is spending time with God because in meditation we are taking the time to listen to the answers to our prayers. So by just breathing and taking a short break and acknowledging God, acknowledging Creator, you're actually spending quality time with Creator. Make time for this because the more that you make time for this, the more that you're going to change your frequency, and the more that you change your frequency, the more that you're going to start seeing changes in your life occur.

And again, the five love languages are quality time, acts of service, gift-giving, physical touch, and then words of affirmation. Now, words of affirmation again can be done throughout the entire day, by just giving thanks. I want to encourage you to use the five love languages not only in spiritual worship but just to recognize that you receive love in different ways and that we can give back love in different ways. So if you haven't checked this book out, go check it out. It's really helpful. Like for me, I know that some of my family members are gift-givers and so that's how they receive love. And so gifts are really important to them, where gifts might not be very important to me, but they're very important to them. And so understanding that's really important. And then words of affirmation, you're going to meet people that they receive love by you saying, “Hey, good job, good job!” And you can do this to God too.

Just so you guys know, my relationship with God is very informal and I want to just let you guys know that you do not have to have a super formal relationship with Creator. If you feel that that is the best way for you to connect, do that. But if it is preventing you from fully just allowing yourself to receive and give and do your practices, allow it to be less formal. So for me, I'll give God a high five, be like, "Hey God, high five on that one. I love you. Thank you. I'm so grateful for you for providing that to me and to my family. I'm so thankful." Or I'll say, "God, like, hey, I'm having a hard time with this, please help me. I don't know even the words to share with you on what I'm asking for, but please help me, please assist me in finding those words."

So the key is to allow your relationship to be authentic with you and you can use the five love languages to do that in worship. And remember, worship is giving yourself fully through your words, deeds, thoughts, and actions to this higher power that dwells within you. So that you can recognize that power is not separate from you because we are not separate from it. We are whole. And the more that we recognize that wholeness, the more that we can be of service and to live our heaven on earth in this lifetime, in this present moment. And the more that you worship, the more that you give back, the more that you allow yourself to be fed with this love and you feed that love as well, the more you're going to see your reality change and you deserve it.

So, alright, my friends, I hope that you worship throughout the day and you allow it to be super, super fun because this can be fun and I look forward to seeing the next episode. Please like and subscribe and share this with a friend. It makes a big difference, more than you know, and it's a huge ripple effect. So alright, guys, I love you very much. See you soon. Bye.
