In the book ‘Love is the Answer’ by Jamplosky and Cirincione, they teach a “psychological-spiritual” approach called Attitudinal Healing, which is a process of letting go of the fearful, guilty, angry, negative thoughts that so many of us carry around in our minds. It is based on the premise that it is not other people or circumstances that cause us to be upset, but rather our own thoughts and attitudes about those people and circumstances that cause us distress.
In attitudinal Healing, health is defined as “inner peace” and healing as “letting go of fear.” It is a way of correcting our own misperceptions. Perhaps the most valuable gift we’ve been given is the freedom to choose and to decide upon our own thoughts.
In his book he talks about two ways of looking at the world and our relationships. One is through the eyes of ego (fear) and the other is through the eyes of love. We can always choose whether we are going to listen to the voice of the ego or the voice of love. We create positive relationships only when we listen to the voice of love.” 🙂

Another great book of Jamplowsky’s is “Love is letting go of Fear”.
Wishing you love and peace, within yourselves and in your relationships……Patty 🙂
