The Healing Power of Love

Valentines Day Postcard with HeartsI am on my way to Kennebunkport, Maine where I will presenting a plenary session at the New England Holistic Nursing Conference. My theme is about co-creating the future of nursing, holistically, and I am excited about it. I have been looking over my presentation and a quote by Steve Chandler really sticks out for me: “Darkness isn’t anything. It is the absence of light. Light is something! You can bring the light and there is no darkness. In just the same way, fear isn’t anything. Fear is merely the absence of love. If you can bring enough love, there is no more fear.” This goes along with the quote from Rumi: “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”  Love has the power to heal. If we love others, and love ourselves, we are healers and the healed. We just need to get out of our own way and let the love and healing in. The same can be said about our profession, our workplace and our families. We can co-create our futures holistically by being open to the love we already have.
