Our postulate for today:
Love- The 300% solution.
I have spoken in great depth about the impact of stress on our health.
And, incredibly, a study out of Denmark found evidence suggesting we have a 300% greater chance of developing illness and disease, by middle-age, if our relationships are in conflict.
Because conflict and unhappiness create negative stress-energy within the body.
Therefore, our relationships have the power to create both positive and negative energy signals, and this energy stores in our cells; our cells remember!
The World Health Organization announced that (based on current research) we can expect a 50% rise in cancer, to epidemic proportions, in the next 20-years. The world Is facing astounding levels of stress, uncertainty, and fear, particularly since the rise of the covid-19 pandemic.
It is no wonder we are getting sick.
The reason I want to share this is because healing our relationships is so important to our health. Living in love can keep us living happier and healthier lives!
So, here is a bonus ‘episode’ in our anatomy of love.
We have discussed:
Today, I want to bring everything together.
If you practice everything we have covered to this point, you will reach the 300% solution- true love.
And, as we know, true love requires empathy, submission, staying tethered, and actively choosing not to give in to our addictions or habits.
Let’s look at the cascade into negativity again-
1. A circumstance occurs that causes pain.
2. We go into fear-based reactions, such as fight-or-flight.
3. We hit ‘failure mode’- negativity.
4. We reach for love substitutes- habits and addictions.
Without even intending, we can easily become untethered and turn to negative patterns of behavior.
I want us to focus back on energy for a moment.
Amplitude + Frequency = Outcome.
You might be wondering what this means.
Think of a frequency counter; if you put it next to anything it will give you a frequency reading.
Love, hurt, joy, peace- they are all frequencies; as are hurt, pain, anger, and sadness- everything in the world has a frequency and amplitude (power).
If you put me into a boxing ring with Mohammed Ali (in his prime!) one frequency is me and one is Mohammed Ali. However, what do you think is the difference between our amplitudes? He is going to hold a much greater amplitude in this instance.
Another example is anxiety. If anxiety is operating at a frequency, its amplitude is the scale of the anxiety felt.
So, if the frequency is joy, we need power behind it. The problem is, we have the potential to wake up with 100% energy potential behind us every day, yet we often wake up feeling half full!
If this sounds like you, you’re probably living your wrong life.
Energy is never destroyed, it just changes form.
And true love drives out fear.
So what is the answer? We need to actively choose love because love heals all.
Gandhi once said-
‘When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall- think of it- always.’
“Paul the Apostle tells his readers in Romans that love is the fulfillment of the law...and the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the law and the prophets hang on these two commandments.”(MATT 40:37-40 NIV)
In other words, every ‘have to’, ‘should do’, ‘need to’- if you do them in love, you’re doing it right.
I want to leave you with this:
Anything else loses.
What is your choice today?
Have a blessed, wonderful day!
