While the first blog post of the year is often dedicated to goal setting, resolutions and self improvement this year will be different. This article is totally dedicated to the most powerful force in the universe. Love! Yes as the Beatles song clearly states, “All you need is love”.

Focusing on your nutrition, emotions, wellness and success is very important every day of every year. However nothing is more important than starting a New Year with a total commitment to maintaining a solid foundation of self-love while also focusing on our other loving relationships.

Universal Laws of Attraction

My son (Zan) married his fiancée (Billi Jo) after Christmas on December 30, 2010 and the key message delivered at the wedding service is that all you need is love to be happy and enjoy life to the fullest. This idea originates from the profound principles and universal laws of attraction, awareness, intention and manifestation that clearly indicates “you are what you think”. Therefore focusing on true and unconditional love will ensure that everything else in our life will sort itself out.

When intuition, messages and synchronicities occur in threes be sure to pay close attention. This happened for me during the holidays with my sons wedding and the numerous family gatherings which occurred. Many different emotions come out when family gathers together.

It has been said the two greatest fears we face during our lives are “we are not enough” and “we are not loved”.

While many articles, newsletter and websites are consumed with being more, doing more, earning more and spending more this article is devoted to the magic moments and profound power of love.

This post often refers to the profound power of Energy Psychology and specifically the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) tapping process for dealing with unresolved emotional events from the past. EFT is easy, fast and terrific for releasing disruptive emotions which revitalizes energy meridians in our body. There are many healing modalities that can also help your body, mind and spirit to be happy, healthy and in harmony.


Love in the SandToday is a great opportunity to share an amazing healing process called Ho’oponopono which also deals with love.

The native Hawaiian wisdom of Ho’oponopono is super for bringing even more forgiveness and love into your life.

This Hawaiian tradition evolved to release the memories and thoughts we perceive as problems from our daily lives. It is a very easy and effective process that begins with being aware of our participation and perception regarding events, people and things we believe cause our problems. Then we release those thoughts by saying and thinking about the four transformational truths.

These profound phrases help to harmonize and heal the hurts others caused you and the hurts you have caused others. First invest a moment to think about a hurt you caused someone or someone caused you. Now allow yourself the gift of releasing the anger, depression, frustration, guilt, hurt, regrets, sadness and turmoil you feel as you repeat these four phrases:

  1. I love you
  2. I’m sorry
  3. Please forgive me
  4. Thank you

Ho’oponopono is an amazing healing process to release negative memories blocking our energy and preventing us from enjoying even more joy, love and happiness in our everyday lives. Anyone can learn true forgiveness and love through the ancient tradition of Hawaiian Ho’oponopono.

Ho’oponopono means to make things right. This includes making it right with our ancestors, ourselves and people with whom you have contact or relationships. The original intent of Ho’oponopono was to correct any wrongs that occurred in one’s life. Ho’oponopono benefits you and others based on the Hawaiian Code of Forgiveness. It’s an important foundation because as we forgive others we forgive ourselves.

The Ripple Effect

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) has a belief that “people do the best they can with the resources they have available.” It is important to realize we all do the best we can in the moment so embrace the idea of forgiving others and yourself when mistakes are made. The process of Ho’oponopono is to heal our genealogy as well as to heal ourselves and relationships with other people.

When we say I love you we are raising our spiritual consciousness as well as sending love to others around us. This is part of the ripple effect that spreads love around the world. The opposite of this is expressing hate or negative thoughts which spread negative energy around the world. Our energetic body is like an antenna so which emotions do you choose to receive and transmit each day?

Imagine the benefits every one of us can make every day as you feel, hear, say and think “I love you” to others and yourself.

Love Transforms

Love is a magical spell that helps transform us to a higher level of caring, connection and consciousness. Start by showering yourself first with the love you desire and deserve everyday. After you give yourself what you need then begin to give others what they need also.

Soon you will find that love is very contagious as more people start sharing it with people around them. Since hate is also very contagious be careful and choose carefully which emotion to hold in your head and heart. With this awareness it is easy to feel and see that as simple as it seems…all we need is love. As you give more love you will receive more love in turn.

Mastery Action Plan

Enjoy watching a movie about love such as:

  • Michael (John Travolta, William Hurt & Andie MacDowell)
  • Love Actually  (Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Bill Nighy and Emma Thompson)

Both of these movies exemplify the theme that…all you need is love.
