The Love Bomb Balm Will Heal Sore Emotions
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Love is balm for scraped knees and hurt minds. You can never overuse this good medicine, and it is therapeutic in every situation.

Love bomb everybody, your children, your neighbors, Mr. Grouchy at the corner grocery store and Ms. Snippet at the bank. See how it transforms them. Love bomb your boss, your pets, your husband, your wife, your friends, your car, your plants, your entire universe.

Everything and everyone responds to love. Love heals. Love nourishes. Love completes. Love inspires. It transforms. Love makes everything right in our world... everything right in your world.

What do you have to lose? You have everything to gain by loving. You will experience increased happiness and better health, a better life. Not a bad exchange. It’s a much better lifestyle than finding fault with others and being argumentative, and consequently, being miserable yourself. Remember, whatever energy you put out comes back to you. If you put out loving energy, you will attract the same.

But what is love? Is it an emotion? Some kind of force? Is it some grand indefinable mystery? Well, I know for certain it is powerful, even more powerful than fear. Maybe it's easier to define the ways we can express love. An entire life can be defined by love. Mother Teresa, Gandhi, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Dr. Schweitzer, Madame Curie, the list goes on. What did they all have in common? They were all dedicated people who were motivated by a creative need to give of themselves. Through their talent and industriousness, they demonstrated great love. All were in service to mankind, but in different ways. The firemen who risk their own lives in order to save another are all living lives of great love. The mother and father who love and protect their children, being always vigilant, and always giving tender care are living lives of deep devotion and love.

What are some of the best ways we can express love in our own lives? To me, one of the best ways of loving another is to accept the other person unconditionally. Don't expect anyone to have to change in order to receive your love. There is nothing more powerful than to feel appreciated. Appreciate everything and everyone. See the beauty and magic in the other person and appreciate them for what you love about them. We all have flaws. Focus on the good. Maybe they are funny. Maybe they sing beautifully. Maybe they are wonderful companions. You express love for someone by looking out for their well being. You want them to be happy and fulfilled.

Know that I abhor cultism. Many cults promote a phony display of love bombing and the term has been polluted by fakes whose main intention is to control you and others. I am not advocating phony sentiment or hypocrisy in any form. If you don't genuinely feel it, then don't say it and don't do it. Just lead with kindness and universal love in order to heal and bring those fine qualities out of others.

Love becomes a habit. You don't have to think much about it. You simply feel it for other people, and you act accordingly. Giving of your time, talent, and energy is loving. Hugging is loving. Holding a stranger's hand when he or she is upset, is loving. Giving encouragement is loving. Empowering another to overcome fear is loving. When you express love, something magical happens. You heal yourself as well.

While attending to the people around you, don't forget to love yourself. I think that might be the biggest challenge for most people. Remember, you can't really love another without loving yourself first. Open your heart and make space for your own happiness. Creating a wonderful lifestyle begins with an open heart.

When in doubt, in fear, or in any dark emotional space, apply the love bomb, and it'll heal yourself and others.

I agree with you about the power of love. Thank you for writing about different ways to express love. We can express love in so many different ways. Self love was very hard for me in the past because my life was a big mess when I moved to Ohio in 1994. I went from sharing an apartment with a boyfriend, going to school full-time, and working part-time to staying with my aunt and uncle in their house without a job and without going to school. I had to take time away from working and going to school so I could focus on my relationship with God and developing good relationships with other people.
