Recently I made a comment to a friend, “Love is the ultimate healer.” She said, “Don’t make absolute statements. That’s not my experience. Love isn’t always healing.” At first I was surprised, but then I realized that she was talking about romantic love. I was talking about Love without conditions. The first CAN and sometimes does help to open a person’s heart to experience the latter, but not necessarily.
The word love has come to mean romantic love in our society, and this kind of love is most often very conditional: “I’ll give so much love to you if you give so much back to me. If you don’t love me back, I feel rejected and worthless at my core, and I may take this out on you—and the rest of the world!”
This is the opposite of healing Love. Love without conditions says, “I love you just as you are, without judgment, and you don’t have to give me anything back. You don’t even have to know or like me.” It holds a mirror up to the other person, saying, “Look how beautiful you are! This is how I see you! This is who you are!” Love without conditions is not an emotion, it is a state of being. In this state of being all healing happens, for imbalances, whether in physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual bodies, are ULTIMATELY the result of not loving our Self, of feeling less than, unworthy, bad, unlovable.
In my experience (especially with doing Soul Wisdom energy clearings), pretty much everyone on earth who is not an avatar in disguise (and possibly some of them as well) has these feelings buried deep in the psyche. Some spiritual teachers say that this comes from the first separation from Creator/Source/God-Goddess-All-That-Is. When Source sent out sparks of Itself which became us, we became aware of being individual, which felt separate from Oneness. We are never separate, but it could feel like this, and some further interpreted it as rejection.
Those beings who would control us, in order to feed off of our fear energy, built on this small uncertainty within our subconscious in many ways. One of the most potent was through religion. Most of the world’s religions have a core of Love—Love without conditions. However this core has been subsumed under layers of man-made dictums, influenced by the aforesaid beings, telling us that we are sinners, we are not enough, we are dirt, we need to be “saved” or we will go to a fiery hell, or a freezing hell, or whatever. Some even tell us that there is nothing we can do to change our fate—only a few will be “saved” through the grace of the God they describe, and anything we do cannot influence this. It is foreordained. This is a lot to handle, especially when you are fed it at a very young and impressionable age.
These beings also denigrated the feminine wherever possible. This split humanity. We all contain both feminine and masculine energies within, in varying proportions. Both must be in balance within us in order for us to understand who and what we truly are—divine beings of Light having a human experience, learning to hold spirit within the physical at a high vibrational rate. This is called ascension. These beings do not want us to ascend; they fear the loss of their sustenance—feeding off the fear and other non-Love emotions of human beings.
