Big Love; Love Big. 

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

 You’ve felt alone, angry, frustrated, guilty, or worried about the future?  Feelings are normal; they aren’t bad until they affect your life.  You’ve tried to change some of these feelings that interfere with your relationships or in living your life.  Perhaps you’ve felt a bit discouraged with yourself and your inability to control your feelings, attitudes and actions that result.

What is your cost for your current “bad attitudes”?  Sometimes it can lead to sleepless nights, hard time concentrating, the breakup in friendships / relationships, work issues, not feeling good about yourself…stress can cause ill health as lots of health studies show us.  We consider these attitudes as fear based.

When I started in Attitudinal Healing I was a worrier and I have learned to feel what that feels like in my body and how to stop those thoughts.  I just don’t want to feel like that anymore!  I also was a bit judgmental / critical of others and now try to catch myself when I have those thoughts and learned to accept others more…just the way they are.  The 12th AH Principle has really helped me a lot to see that we are all “extending Love or giving a call for help.”  More on that later.  I am living a much more peace-filled life because of seeing life differently; “seeing through the eyes of Love!”

“Those who Love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.” – Alan Cohen

As a Child; Forgetting Love

I’ve heard a story about children and Love.  It’ about a new baby boy and his 4 year old sister.  The sister wanted to be in the baby’s room alone with him and Mom did not want her to be there but gave in one day and listened at the door.  The sister said to her little brother, “Tell me about Love and where you came from as I am beginning to forget!”  Out of the mouths of babes!

I have a strong belief that babies come into this world pure and full of Love (see AH Principle #1, Blog Post of January 24th) and that the “world ego and adults” teach children to forget the unconditional Love they originally felt.  Then there are the “terrible twos”…and the opposite of Love is getting stronger and stronger.  In AH we believe this is the worldly ego that is the opposite of Love, our fear base as has been mentioned in blog posts before.  Right here it’s important to just understand that there is Love and there is the opposite of Love.

Love Big
The Big Love Ball

As an Adult; Not Feeling Love

It was a Thursday evening, just like any other Thursday evening when I was facilitating my Attitudinal Healing (AH) personal growth / support group, which I’d been doing every week for about 10 years, then.  We had 5 people in the group that night and one lady told us about how she didn’t feel any love.   She’d been having family problems due to a child with a long illness and she did not have family, friends, or any type of support.  She felt all alone.  I asked her if she felt any emotions that day.  She remembered her cat being on her lap and that that felt good.  I mentioned that animals give us unconditional Love moments, I will call “Love Lights”.

I wondered, why did this woman’s story make such an impact on me that I still remember that woman and that night?  I felt so sorry for anyone who feels that alone and not feel Loved.  I was a blessed child to have such loving parents and now have a wonderful family and friends.  I know others who do not have this and that causes them anxiety and stress and is more challenging for them to feel and give and receive Love.

What can We Do?

For this lady, and others, I suggested that she begin to keep track, like in a journal, of ANY experience and emotions that feel good whether she is giving or receiving Love with anyone or anything…could be with a friend, family member, stranger, an animal…and even giving to yourself.  The first steps are INTENTION to change and AWARENESS.  The time to begin is NOW, so grab your planner or journal and keep track of “Love Lights” and powerful Peace-filled moments. 

“You have been so helpful to me and I truly appreciate the time we’ve shared together.   Thank you for being such a good listener, so kind, and compassionate! I found our group to be empowering and I’ve learned a lot.  I will continue to keep the AH principles in mind.”  –  L.B. 2017

Each time you come to this blog you make a CHOICE to go down the path of least resistance, the path you have been traveling, or you can choose the road less traveled.  Do you want the same outcomes or to live a different, less stressed, more peace-filled, awesome life?  Which result do you want?  I hope you choose to have more views into my Awesome Attitudes 2 D-Stress Blog for Peace to support your continuing journey.

READY, SET, GO … Attitudinal Healing Principle #1: The Essence of our Being is Love.

No matter the question…LOVE is THE Answer…moment by moment!

The Geratest is Love

“AH” 101

Our world and lives may seem a bit more chaotic lately.  Many of us are going through tough, stressful times, with added anxiety and it appears that it is challenging for us to stay in a peaceful place.  This is the time when our Love essence is even more important to be aware of.  The Principles of Attitudinal Healing “AH” are a guide for us to use, daily, even hourly, to stay out of our “fear base”, every attitude that is not loving, (see below) and have more inner peace, and less stress, that we all are seeking.  So, let’s take a look at the essence of our being, LOVE.

LOVE BASE

If you will think back to seeing a young infant…perhaps in your family; do you doubt that that small child was full of love?  Can you see the love in their eyes, their sweet, little face looking at our fundamental nature…this is truly who we are.  We can learn “To See Differently,’ that “Love is a given, a permanent energy in the universe and in each human being; it is our natural state.”  It is connected to our Spirit rather than our “earthly ego”.

What are some expressions of LOVE?  They are:

  • Kindness
  • Caring
  • Respect
  • Honesty
  • Support
  • Friendship
  • Understanding
  • Communication
  • Compassion
  • Forgiveness
  • Unity
  • Smiles, etc.

These are experienced when we are in our Love Base…connected to our Spirit.  A thought of LOVE, then the feeling of LOVE, is where an act of LOVE begins, so thoughts of LOVE are very powerful and energetically connect us all.

THINK LOVE  →  FEEL LOVE  →  ACT LOVE

Daily Affirmation: “I am lovable, I am loving, I open myself to accept love. I feel love. I give love…today and everyday.”

FEAR BASE

As we grew up, we learned to block that Love Essence through judgments we learned and experiences we had along with the feelings from our FEAR base such as:

  • Anger
  • Frustration
  • Guilt
  • Shame
  • Blame
  • Criticism
  • Condemnation
  • Worry
  • Separation
  • Abandonment

These name a few…which are the opposite of LOVE.  They are all Fear-based attitudes that become actions, which we experience when we are attached to our “earthly ego”.  They have been learned…so they can be unlearned.  That’s good news!

PRACTICE

Please do not despair because of your limitations on experiencing this principle to its fullest.  As we connect with our Spirit, we strengthen our awareness of love within ourselves…and can become more aware of the love essence within us and others.  And as we see love expressed from others, it reflects our own love essence back to us, as we are all connected through LOVE.  Practice paying attention to feeling your Essence…and when you do not.

CHOOSE LOVE NOT FEAR…it is your choice.  Start today.  We will be practicing, going from our Fear base to our Love base, all year…it takes practice.  I do it every day!

WELCOME! This is Seeing Differently!

This is the post excerpt.

Susan Blog Welcome 2

 “Susan, the wonderful work you are doing encourages us to do more to promote this awesome task of bringing peace and healing to many individual lives, families and entire nation.  You’re doing an amazing job for many decades with this awesome organization and keep it up Mrs. Susan!!!”
— David Owusu; AH in Kumasi-Ghana, Western Africa  2018

“Love your positive energy.  Looking forward to following.  You have so much wisdom to share.”   — Lois Hancock, Former R.N. at University of Michigan         

Do you get annoyed by some people and sometimes, everything? 
In Attitudinal Healing (AH), and many other “Truths”, we learn to understand that once we get on the other side of irritation / fear, miraculous incidences can occur, and limiting beliefs and blocks to love can fade while emotional symptoms are diminished and often disappear.

Then peace can enter your being no matter what is going on around you…no matter what you are doing or who you are interacting with.

Here’s to all of us raising our consciousness for kinder, more peaceful relationships and a more wholesome, awesome world.

What will I Learn, over time, from this Awesome Attitudes 2 D-Stress Blog?

  • Recognize harmful patterns of thoughts, attitudes and behaviors and negative reactions to people and circumstances in daily life and how to see them differently.
  • You can release stress that causes suffering from hanging on to old thought patterns and habits and make room for joy and freedom from stress and fear.
  • What you think about expands in your life…your thoughts create your experience.
  • How you can change your mind, change your attitudes, change your stress, and change your life to choose peace over conflict and love over fear.

 My Purpose and Messages

Welcome to this Awesome Attitudes Peace Blog.  It is no accident that you are here.  It is great to have you, just the way you are.  You are beginning this New Year of 2018, filled with unlimited potential and possibilities.  I want to encourage you and give you new hope to live a happier, less stressed way of living.  This is a new day in your life.  STARTING JANUARY 2018.

Are you stressed…like this kitty cat?  Do you feel frustrated, angry, sad, or more?  Thank you for joining me on this marvelous journey to create a community where every person can develop Inner Peace by reducing stress via Love based Attitudes at all ages.  When you KNOW how to make choices to enhance your life and live with a change in attitudes from a fear base to a love base you live in more freedom and inner peace…and a state of consciousness that allows for connection and so much more, and to live with less stress.  Our purpose really is to live in love, inner peace and oneness.

This Awesome Attitudes Blog for Peace will initially be using the Miraculous 12 Principles of Attitudinal Healing based on mental health / psychological and spiritual ideologies …PLUS much more from many wise truth-seekers and Masters, Collective Consciousness…so every person can expand Inner Peace and reduce stress via these Love based Principles.  I have learned from many: Johnathan Livingston Seagull, Buddha, Gandhi…Dr. David Hawkins, Dr. Gerald Jampolsky…up to Oprah, Deepak Chopra, and my “main man” Jesus, as well as family and friends, and many more during my whole life and especially the last 30 years with my intention for more openness and expansion in my thinking. 

“Our only goal is Inner Peace.”, Dr. Gerald Jampolsky / Founder of Attitudinal Healing

What is Attitudinal Healing?

I have volunteered for the Metro Detroit Center for Attitudinal Healing (one of many Centers around the world) for about 25 years and have been the Executive Director for the past few years.  We recently “closed our doors” here and I just “know” I have to continue to write about these principles and like-wise philosophies…it is my purpose, now…so here I am!  (Learn more in About Me.)  

Attitudinal Healing is a cross-cultural method of healing that helps remove self-imposed blocks such as judgment, blame, shame and self-condemnation that are in the way of experiencing lasting love, peace, and happiness. It is based on the belief that it is not people or experiences outside of ourselves that cause us to be upset. Rather, it is our thoughts, attitudes, and judgments about them (out influences) that cause us distress.

Health is defined as inner peace and healing as the letting go of fear. These are guiding principles in this groundbreaking work in personal, collective, and global transformation.

The approach and philosophy is based on universal principles and forgiveness. People of all ages, beliefs, walks of life, and cultures benefit from the practice of Attitudinal Healing.  From www.ahinternational.org.

The 12 Principles of AH benefit people because they help to expand our perspectives beyond normal consciousness and thinking into a more positive way on how to respond to others and life situations.  We learn that we can make the choice to enjoy a more peaceful, worry-free and loving life.  See the 12 AH Principles at: http://www.ahinternational.org/images/stories/content/downloads/the_principles_attitudinal_healing_english.pdf
