Just what is the force of love and how does it work?
The force of love is more than an emotion. Love is one of the most powerful forces in the world. It is a spiritual force that can be used with knowledge and skill to transform any situation into one of light, love, peace, and harmony.
If you are like most people you are already using this technique with a slight difference. Most of us spend our time mentally practicing the conflict we do not want in our relationships.
We see or think about the person we are having difficulty with and imagine the conflict in our mind. We then combine the feelings of anger, fear, or resentment with this image, thus bringing us the results we do not want.
We often spend hours in mental arguments preparing for an imagined battle with someone in our lives. I am simply suggesting you use this same amount of time seeing the potential conflicts in your life resolving with harmony and peace. Try it. It works.
Do I have to feel love for the person with which I am using the 5-Minute Miracle?
A frequent question is, “If I do not feel love for this person or circumstance how can I use the force of love the change the situation?” The process does not require you to feel love.
When I speak about the power of love I am not talking about sentimental or emotional love. I am speaking of love as a spiritual force.
You do not need to feel love for the person. All you need to do is think or see the spiritual power of love surrounding the person or situation.
Many people have difficulty this concept. They are concerned about sending love to someone with whom they are not in love. They may also feel so angry with the person that they do not want to send love.
You are using your imagination to send love to the person or situation. This is a mental process, not emotional. The feeling you are asked to experience is joy as you celebrate the success of your experiment with the power of love.
In all visualization exercises it is important to combine the thought with a powerful positive emotion. In this exercise, the thought is love and positive transformation in your life; the powerful positive emotion is joy as you celebrate your success.
What if the person does not deserve love?
Often people will feel like the other person does not deserve their love. These feelings can be confusing; but, when you understand that love is a powerful spiritual force, it is easier to overlook the human components of love and use it as a tool to transform your life.
The real question here is "do YOU deserve to have your life transformed?" It really isn't about the other person. It is true that the other person will benefit from the love you send but YOU will be the greatest recipient of blessings.
One concept that has helped me immensely in life is to remember that people are doing the best they can. Sometimes their best is not good enough but it is the best they can do given their circumstances. People who do not know about the spiritual force that resides within them are victims of outside circumstances. They are mean and difficult because they do not know the truth of their spiritual nature.
Instead of being angry with them for their limitations, I am so very thankful that I do not have to live in their limited consciousness. I am also thankful that I can use the power of love to transform how they treat me and protect my world.
Can I use the 5-Minute Miracle to make people do what I want them to do?
You can use the power of love to transform every area of your life. What you cannot do is try to transform other people’s lives.
Everyone has the right to choose how he or she wants to live. Sending love will often encourage others to choose more harmony in their lives. But you do not have the right to dictate how someone else will live.
For instance you cannot use the power of love to make a person want to marry you or give you an expensive gift. You can, though, use the power of love to attract a loving relationship into your life. It simply may not be the person you thought it had to be. Be open to unexpected solutions in response to using the power of love.
Can these techniques be used for evil purposes?
This is a very common question. I do not believe that you can force anyone to do anything that they are not willing to do on some level of their being. When you use the power of love to influence people and situations it has the added benefit of transforming you. You cannot send love out to the world and remain the same.
What if I can't see an image?
The two components of an effective positive visualization technique are a clear image of what you want to create combined with a strong positive emotion. Mental images do not always come in the form of a picture. Some people use words, thoughts, or sensations to create a mental image. You can determine what components you use to create mental images by observing your daydreams or fantasies. Do you see clear pictures, or do your daydreams consist of blurred images with clear thoughts?
Although you can increase your ability to see clear pictures through practice, whatever style you use in your normal daydreams to create mental images will be quite effective as a visualization technique. What is important is a clear image combined with a strong emotion.
How long do I have to continue using the technique?
Once you experience the power of the 5-Minute Miracle techniques you will want to use them every day in your life. How long you will need to continue working on a particular situation depends on the circumstance. Some situations are finite like finding a parking place. Other situations are ongoing and need support from time to time.
For instance, if you are using the power of love to transform a long-standing abusive relationship, you might see great results within a short time period. However when you stop sending love to this needy person he or she might resort back to his or her old behavior. In a case like this you might need to send some love every day to this person.
It is actually easy to spend some time each day sending love out to all the people in your life. You can send extra love to people who seem to need more at any particular time. It is a very pleasant experience and I do not think you will find it troublesome or exhausting.
What if I feel exhausted when I do the 5-Minute Miracle? Am I doing it wrong?
Yes, you should not feel exhausted! You are probably trying to use your will power or exert a force to influence the situation. The 5-Minute Miracle techniques are based on a gentle process. You simply need to use your imagination and "see" love surrounding the situation. This is not a matter of will power but of visualization. This process, when done correctly, should be no more exhausting than a pleasant daydream.
Relax and enjoy the new vision you are creating of your reality. Create with joy!
What if it doesn't work?
Keep trying! Some situations require more time than others do. However, if you will keep sending love every day you will eventually see positive results.
Can I do it more than once a day?
Yes, it is actually more powerful if you use the techniques 2 or 3 times a day.
Can I work with more than one situation at a time?
Yes, of course you can. However, during your 2 week experiment with the 5-Minute Miracle I suggest you only use it with one situation. I want you to see results and two many experiments can cloud the issue.
Can I use these techniques with animals?
By all means. The 5-Minute Miracle can be used to heal a sick animal or calm an over zealous pet. Animals are very sensitive to mental images. I think you will find your pets responding quite rapidly to these techniques.
Does it work with inanimate objects?
The power of love works on anything. You can use the 5-Minute Miracle to help you find lost or misplaced objects. You can use it to keep appliances and tools in good working order for a longer time period. Experiment and let us know how love works for you.
Where is God in all of this?
God is love. The spiritual force of love is a gift from God to help us create peace, prosperity, and harmony in our lives. Love is the healing balm that flows directly from the heart of God. You cannot use love on a regular basis and not sense the Presence of God operating in your life.
The Bible says that perfect love casts out fear. I would have to agree that when I use the power of love in my life I am much less fearful. I feel in control and very blessed.
Can the 5-Minute Miracle help me reduce my stress?
In today’s rapidly changing world, many people feel their lives are out of control. The 5-Minute Miracle provides an effective way to reduce these feelings of powerlessness that often cause stress.
According to Dr. Alice Domar, a researcher at Harvard Medical School, “… a sense of control is vital to our well being. When we think we have lost control over our lives and health, we become vulnerable to all manner of mental and physical ills. We don't always need actual control. We primarily need to believe we have control. Studies have shown that people who feel helpless to change stressful conditions may be at increased risk of heart disease and immune system disorders.”
Using the exercises included in this program, you can positively affect the difficult situations in your life. As you gain skill in these techniques you will no longer feel like a victim to people and situations that seem beyond your control. You will learn to tap into a scientifically proven power that is inherent in the human consciousness.
Many people claim that through the use of these techniques they have changed their mental perspective and emotional reactions to difficult situations and relationships. No matter what happens on the outside, they somehow feel better about themselves and the situations in their lives. Psychologists have called this healing response “reframing”.
Can this technique help me lose weight?
Yes! Sending love to your body will greatly help you achieve your weight loss goals. Often being overweight creates and is created by a sense of detachment from the body. Sending love vibrations to your body will help to heal the old hurts and resentments you may be carrying with you. Forgiveness and love are integral parts of any weight loss program.
