Love Heals

Love HealsMaslowsHierarchyOfNeeds.svg_ This I know. And so do you. Out of the 40 healing “modalities” I have experienced, learned and taught over the past 30 years the one that stands out, the Healing Code, is based on it.

The Healing Code works because of the transformational power of unconditional love. Naturally there are many other modalities which work on the same principle. And of course we have endless testimonies from renowned spiritual teachers to the same end:

“A thought transfixed me; for the first time in my life I saw the truth as it is set into song by so many poets, proclaimed as the final wisdom by so many thinkers. The truth-that love is the ultimate and the highest goal to which man can aspire.”

Dr Viktor Frankl

Few people have greater credentials for making such a statement than Dr Frankl, the Austrian psychiatrist who survived Auschwitz, Dachau and Thereseinstadt. If you haven’t read Man’s Search for Meaning let accessing a copy be the first thing you do after reading this post.

We can ask ourselves “What is love?” We can (I have, see To Love and Be Loved) explore the Greeks six different varieties of love and indulge ourselves in all kinds of analysis. Dr Gary Chapman (The Language of Love) talks about five love “languages” as ways to express love to those close to us. Whilst there is a verbal component to all of them, only one (Words of Affirmation) emphasises talk as opposed to the four others which are all actions.

It doesn’t take a Non-Terrestrial to realise that the world and all sentient beings are crying out for love. And as this post is about what you can do, as opposed to tackling the negative global forces of the matrix head-on, consider this:

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

Rumi

How many of us can honestly say that they love themselves? Rumi touches upon the barriers we all have when it comes to loving other people. And what is it about loving a higher power, an avatar, God, Source?

Loving another person in an intimate relationship runs the risk that it may all end in tears and for many people that risk is not one they are willing to take. What is it, apart from perhaps “failed” past relationships that has/have installed this “programme?”

The energy of love can be retained by water; plants thrive on it as do companion animals, and in truth all sentient beings.

“The mystery of human existence lies in not just staying alive, but in finding something to live for.”

Fyodor Dostoevsky

Some of you may remember or be familiar with Maslow’s hierarchy of human needs. At the top of his pyramid lies the self-actualised being. See the diagram (top left) for more.

Maybe it is a goal for you to become self-actualised, or to educate or evolve your soul, or to serve or just have a happy and fulfilled life. Can you become self-actualised without having the “lower” needs met? Maslow suggests not. But we all know (include me) those of us who when in love can ignore the bottom two and have all the inspiration they need to propel them to the top. There is much discussion about the merits of Maslow’s theory so I will leave that with you to explore.

Wayne Dyer in his excellent book, I Can See Clearly Now, talks about our existential needs for challenge and nurture. In my worldview, I can take on just about any challenge if I am loved. And if I am loved I am nurtured. And taking on challenges leaves me open to “failure.” And that “failure” may be very painful. Love Heals.

Wasn’t the primary message of Jesus (and no doubt many other avatars about whom I must plead ignorance) that we should love each other? Most of you, if not all of you, will know how unforgiveness and resentment can ruin lives.

I’ll close this post with this rather telling story from chapter 41 of Wayne Dyer’s above book:

“During the course of our many counselling sessions together, Suzi Kaufman related that her young son Raun, previously diagnosed with infantile autism, was completely unreachable… Autism experts from all around the world declared: ‘It is incurable. He is unreachable. We don’t know why, and there is nothing that can be done.’

Suzi and husband Barry hired students and trained them in a method they created, essentially to surround Raun with unconditional love in a contained, safe environment. For 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for months on end, Raun was the recipient of continual loving responses.

In 1976 Barry went on to write a book called Son Rise, which detailed the entire process they developed and how they were ultimately able to see Raun come back to them and leave his diagnosis of ‘incurable’ behind.”

Many of you will have your own stories. Love Heals. Love is Action. It is a learned behaviour. It will change the world.

Any takers?

Namaste, Jack Stewart, 29 January 2020.
