Energy Healing: The Healing Power of Love

heart in sandThere are many aspects of love that affect illness and healing.  Obviously, love isn’t a form of energy healing, but I think it’s so important to understand how love affects health.

In his book Love, Medicine and Miracles, Bernie Siegel explains the impact of love of the immune system and healing.

“I feel that all disease is ultimately related to a lack of love, or to love that is only conditional, for the exhaustion and depression of the immune system thus created leads to physical vulnerability.”1

“I am convinced that unconditional love is the most powerful known stimulant of the immune system.  If I told patients to raise their blood levels of globulins or killer T cells, no one would know how.  But if I can teach them to love themselves and others fully, the same changes happen automatically.  The truth is: love heals.”1

It has taken many years, but the most important thing I have learned on my healing journey, is how to love myself.  In the Release Technique we learn that Love is inside of us, we have the power to feel and be loved any time we want.

If you study energy healing you will see and hear people talking about The Biology of Belief by Dr. Bruce Lipton, it is an interesting an enlightening book.  Here he discusses the importance of joy and love.

This quote sums up two import steps in my energy healing strategy, first you must clear or release those things in you that cause you to feel stress and then you can feel those high frequency emotions like love and joy.

As I discussed in my (thoughts frequency) post, David R. Hawkins, M.D. mapped the levels on consciousness. “All levels below 200, it is destructive of life in both the individual and society at large; all levels above 200 are constructive expressions of power.”3 Since love has the level of consciousness of 500, it would be very constructive, especially when you consider this is a logarithmic scale.

In my opinion, relieving stress and learning to feel loved are critical steps in healing and an energy healing strategy. Many look for joy, happiness and love out there somewhere, but it starts within you.  You need to be able to love yourself even when your body is not yet healed, have no money or are alone, that’s the true test.
