The Healing Power of Love with Michael Roads, Thursday, July 7, 2016, 7:00pm - 9:00pm, Charles Fillmore Chapel. It is a very obvious statement to say that humanity is a sick species. Why? Because we live our lives in separation and illusion, looking for the cause of sickness outside of ourselves. We seldom ever invoke the healing power of Love. Not Love from a divine Being, but from our own personal relationship with Love. Not emotional love, but absolute, unconditional Love. Most of our ideas about physical, emotional and mental health are externalised, accredited to the things we drink and eat, our exercise routine, yoga, yoga, meditation and all the other worthy practices that make up our regular overall health routines. Despite this, some people have excellent health practices but still never achieve true health. Why? Unconditional self-Love is never prescribed! We have developed techniques for emotional and mental healing that are based in many excellent healing modes, yet the way of living in continual vibrant health is overlooked. We have developed a ‘get sick and cure’ mentality, rather than staying continuously well.

Love is the power of creation . . . it is not an emotion. Unconditional Love is where truly vibrant health begins, when we live within the energetic frequency of Love. Everything regarding perfect comprehensive health is held within the framework of your relationship with yourself . . . critical or loving. Whether we suffer physically, emotionally or mentally, it is really down to our relationship with self.

Unconditional Love is the ignored, too difficult to deal with aspect of perfect health. Join us for this uplifting, innovative, unique, far reaching talk on the healing power of Love.

In Love and Light,
Michael
