What’s Love Got to Do With It?
Love is the most healing force in the universe. There are different ways that this is true, but today I’m going to focus on how our energy and love are connected on a cellular level. After 30 years of practicing Chinese Medicine, I’ve learned a lot. One of my favorite aspects of the discipline is the idea that we’re all made up of energy that travels throughout our bodies.
The Power Of Love
This energy acts as the controlling force in our bodies and is the essence that connects everything in the universe. There is a communication system that is happening constantly between our cells and those around us. This communication is powered by love, which brings the cells together and creates a sort of interfacing language allowing them to interact.
Healing That which Ails You
One of the greatest things you can do for yourself when it comes to healing is to focus on love. A lot of times when we are ill we tend to get frustrated and angry at our bodies because we feel like they are being mean to us. We start an internal conflict against our own selves and the natural systems inside our bodies.
It can be difficult, but the best thing you can do is to stop the battle. Start by surrendering to what is happening and realize that your body is your friend. Then focus on loving your body. No matter what is happening to you remember that your body is your friend. If you have a hard time focusing on loving your current illness, try to find something that doesn’t hurt right now and love that. You can even massage it and tell it how much you appreciate that it is healthy.
Learning to Love Yourself
Any amount of love and appreciation toward your body’s health will help. This can be a challenging concept to put into practice though, especially when you are in pain or feel like your body is not cooperating. It can be hard to accept that your body actually is your friend. However, if you work on this in small increments it can be accomplished. Even as little as two minutes a day just focusing on loving yourself is enough to encourage your cells to connect with each other. When that cellular communication starts again, healing begins.
