To See People Differently.
As we end this year and our review of the 12 Attitudinal Healing Principles we are now to look at our relationships. Do you have any relationships, especially during this Holiday time, that you feel stressed with? So many people do in their families, with friends, or at work.
Do you see any of your relationships here?!
When I first became acquainted with Attitudinal Healing, I thought this concept / principle was the most profound. And I still find it to be one I think of very often…well, every day as I encounter situations in my fear base. In every situation or relationship, we are either extending love or giving a call for help. The practice of this principle brings meaning and purpose to every human encounter and every human circumstance. This principle does require the integration of all the other 11 principles; accepting the healing power of love, giving and receiving, living in the NOW moment; forgiveness, focusing on love, with the intention of inner peace as our only goal.
DO ALL THINGS WITH LOVE.
INNER PEACE IS OUR ONLY GOAL.
In the previous 11 principles, we have talked a lot about feeling the essence of our being and extending love to our self and others. And that love is the greatest healing force in the world. We have been called to remember when we have felt a deep love for others and when we have felt that from others in our life. Simply, the extending of love is through kindness, understanding, patience, etc., and feeling our inner light and spirituality. It is a state of non-Judgment (there’s that “J” word again!). When we are in the state of love, which is a pure state, then we can find inner peace…that passes all understanding. It is simply felt and enjoyed. We all want to feel that feeling and I find that I don’t want to “leave that feeling” when I “find it”. I find it in the love of family and friends and in prayer / meditation with connection to God, and every time I send loving thoughts. I’d just like to stay there…wouldn’t you? How can we feel that love? At any point in time, we can “give ourselves a hug” through a positive affirmation for safety and love. (See affirmations below.)
Call for Help – Healing our Wounds
Whenever we are NOT in that position of extending love, we are in a FEAR state. Whether it is about ourselves or another person, it is the same. It is a call for help because it can be so hard to get back to the state of love we all so long for. We have all been wounded during our lives which has taken us away from our original essence of love, of feeling safe, so the call for help is a call for love and healing of our past wounds.
It is through inner guidance that we learn how to respond to a call for help. The call for help has become a natural reaction in our human fear base, and we act it out in ways that are not loving and connecting. Then the other person’s reaction to that is from their fear base…and back and forth…which is the state of conflict. Calls for help come in many forms, such as anger, frustration, impatience, blame, guilt, judgment, etc.
A very important concept is that we are not seen as a victim or victimizer, but as wounded and calling for help to heal.
FEAR (wounded) ↔ FEAR (wounded) = CONFLICT
= A call for HELP / LOVE!
So, we need to look beyond the appearance of the “fear forms” to the truth that it is a call for love. As we notice another person’s call for help, it is a reminder to ourselves that we, too, call for help when we are in our fear state. This principle is not about changing the behavior of another person, but about changing ourselves and how we view that person’s behavior and our own thoughts and actions.
It is only through seeing ourselves and other people differently, as wounded humans, then extending love to ourselves and others that our wounds can be healed and have more Inner Peace.

Through all the 12 principles we’ve learned to have peace of mind (and less stress) when we choose to see ourselves and others differently through the eyes of LOVE! To really have peace in our lives, we must share LOVE!
