How Love Heals

Updated: Jan 8

Louise Hay asked once, “Do you truly know how to love yourself? Love is the greatest healing and drawing power on earth. It is the very reason for our being and that explains why it is important for people to love something or someone.

Another well-known line from spiritual groups many of you have heard is we have come to believe that a power greater than ourselves which we are a part of is restoring us, to our rightful place, a place of greatness that we never could quite attain by ourselves alone. Let me paraphrase an old scripture. The kingdom of good is at hand. The presence and the power are here in you operating through you right now.

Will you let it in? Will you let it express? Don’t you think it is time?

Spirit within does the healing work. What is ours to do in the process of healing, might be the better question. What can we do to heal? “All healing is self-healing”.

Spirit or this presence, this love needs to be invited into our thoughts, hearts and minds, having that consciousness of unity of oneness.

Louise Hay was clear, when she said “I am not a healer. I do not heal anyone. I think of myself as a stepping-stone on a pathway of self-discovery”. She started out as a practitioner in New York and her book saved my life. She was the most famous Student as some of you know was Louise Hay who wrote the Book you can heal your life.

After years of individual counseling with clients and conducting hundreds of workshops and intensive training programs across the country and around the world, she said "I found that there is only one thing that heals every problem" and that is: “To know how to love yourself”. When people start to love themselves more each day, it’s amazing how their lives get better. They feel better. They get the jobs they want. They start to have the money they need. Their relationships either improve, or the negative one’s dissolve and new ones begin. It’s a very simple premise, loving yourself.
