“Love is a tremendous power. One discovers that the power behind love, without question, is far more powerful than the hydrogen bomb.”
– Lester Levenson
Love was one word I didn’t often use, mainly because it’s so misunderstood and there are a lot of misconceptions around love. To be honest with you, I used to get so “allergic” with this one word because I thought it would trap us to emotional dependency.
Only through growth do we understand what love is. Love is an absolutely necessary ingredient on the path. Love is the most powerful energy in the Universe. It is the “purest” form of energy with the highest vibration and the greatest intensity. Everything in the Universe is a manifestation of love. But most of us look at life on the surface.
Human love is that which most people think love is: you give me approval and I give you approval. Real, divine love, however, is a constant, persistent acceptance of all beings in the Universe, and loving them because they are the way they are. Divine love is allowing the other one to be the way the other one wants to be. Divine love is seeing and accepting everyone equally. Real, divine love is unconditional.
What most people call love is simply a need. If we say that I love this person but not the other, we feel that we need this person, and therefore we’ll be nice to this person so that we can get what we want. But that’s not real love. “I love you because you’re nice to me. And I love you because you accept my flaws. I love you because you tolerate me. I love you because you’re beautiful. Oh, I love you because you’re rich. I love you because I feel you complete me. I love you because you’re this and that.” That’s a barter!
When I started to see that, wow, that’s a big AHA moment for me.
Human love is needing the other one. Divine love is giving to the other one. Human love is selfish, divine love is completely selfless. It is the selfless love that gives unlimited joy beyond our greatest imagination. Try it and discover this for yourself.
I think that this is the test of how divine our love is. Is it the same for every person we meet? Is our love for those who are opposing us as strong as for those who are supporting us?
My teacher, Lester Levenson, had stated that real love itself is something we can’t turn on and off. Either we have it or we don’t have it, and with it, it’s impossible to love one person and hate another. To the degree that we hate anyone, to that degree we do not love the others. Our love is no greater than our hatred is for anyone person. He used to say that every feeling, except love, is a non-love feeling.
Hale Dwoskin softened it a little bit. The way he expresses it is, all feelings, except love, are simply love in disguise. Because as you let go, you’ll discover that no matter how angry you are at someone, no matter how upset you are, you’re back in touch with the love that you are with just a few releases.
YOU ARE LOVE
This love is already right within you waiting to be discovered, nurtured and expressed by you.
Many of us are celebrating life with love, giving, and being with those we care about.
Yet on many levels, the world is in a state of high anxiety, stress, and anger.
A great place to start is bringing positive change for ourselves, the people we care about, and the entire human community.
When you fully love someone, you identify with and you become one with that one. Love is only understood when you love. It is the attitude of givingness, with an understanding of and an identifying with others. Compassion is understanding what the others are experiencing without sharing their misery and with a wish to promote its alleviation.
No matter what you are experiencing in this moment, the healing power of love can help you to move beyond barriers and discover true lasting solutions on a micro and macro-cosmic levels.
THE HEALING POWER OF LOVE
The following Sedona Method process is designed to help you and those you care about to liberate the love within your hearts. You can do this with yourself and you can do this process with everyone you care about.
If you simply ask yourself with an open mind and heart, you’ll find the resistance drops with each answer. Your inner doors open and allowing the light of love to shine within you, through you, and around you.
1. Could you allow yourself to welcome any non-love feeling you are experiencing in this moment?
2. Could you let that feeling go or simply turn it to love as best you can?
3. Could you allow the healing energy of love to flow from your heart into your body, mind, experience, and the world as best you can?
Each time you go through these questions, they open you to a deeper and richer experience of the love that is already shining at your core. They will support you in feeling safe and taking courageous and appropriate action.
IT’S YOUR TURN TO ENVOKE THE POWER OF LOVE WITHIN YOU
“The only method of receiving love is to give love because what we give out must come back.”
– Lester Levenson
I recommend you do this process not just with yourself but with everyone that you know who is willing to go in this direction. Think of family and friends, thinks of circles at work, think of organizations you belong to. You can use this process to create a strong loving community for yourself.
If you’re ready to face your feelings, let go of unwanted feelings, and learn more about yourself, you can begin working with the free guided audio I made for you or book a private session with me. Any releaser, who has not already had one, may have a free, no-obligation, coaching session, usually 45 minutes long. It’s my commitment to the field of releasing. Please pass this on and share what you are experiencing below.
