THE POWER OF LOVE

Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The Human relationship is of great importance for your happiness, health and longevity. Physical affection can help the brain, the heart and other body systems. At the centre of how our bodies respond to love and affection is a hormone called oxytocin. Oxytocin lowers the levels of stress hormones in the body, regulates blood pressure, increases tolerance for pain and even helps wounds heal.  It plays an important role in our relationships.  Oxytocin is made in the area of the brain called the hypothalamus
Most people in today’s society become so busy that they don’t take the time to appreciate the gratitude and receive the love from relationships. People, today are so busy that they don’t have time or space for people that matter. They prefer possessions to humans. Loving, and feeling loved, improves our body’s natural disease fighting competence. There is enough proof that joyful relationships seem to produce just the right kind of chemicals and hormones that are needed to keep diseases at bay and also helps fight diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Several studies have proved that happily married individuals live longer than those who are single. You are probably thinking that love is beneficial only to those in an intimate primary relationship. Not true. To reap the benefits of love, you need not have a lover or spouse. The love you feel can be for a friend, a parent, a child, or a sibling. When you love someone and have yet to have them these emotions can be overbearing. Even your very cells react to love. You feel strong, proud and above all have a zest for life.
When you feel sad your cells run away from each other and move very fast. It is as if they don’t like each other. Hence you feel sad and worthless. Love and acceptance can be powerful medications. Our bodies respond to different thoughts and emotions.
MEDITATION:
·         Sit down with your back erect, eyes closed.
·         Do a few rounds of deep breathing, relaxing your body, starting from your toes working up to your head.
·         Be in this relaxed state for a few minutes.
·         Bring your focus on your heart chakra, inhale all the negativities from the chakra, and exhale it out. Continue till you feel that the chakra is cleansed.
·         Now visualise this chakra spinning in a clockwise manner, pink in colour. Note if there are any areas of tension or stress in your body, gently send love and pink energy from your heart chakra to these areas till you are sure that you are free from these negativities.
·         Now visualise the whole body suffused with this pink love energy.
·         Affirm I am love. Be in this state for some time, return the pink light back to the chakra.

·         Relax in this state for some time.
