The Simple Smile and How It Gives Love-energy

The Simple Smile and How It Gives Love-energy

If we genuinely want to change the outside world and make it a better place, we must first change ourselves on the ‘inside’.

How can we begin to do this? The advice of American Indian shamans is never to take life too seriously, and the triggering device for that inner change is simply a smile.

Indeed, Taoist masters taught that the secret or establishing harmony with yourself was to smile. So learn to smile! It does more than make you feel good: a smile has tremendous power.

Learn more about this power, and why a smile transmits Love-energy which has a harmonizing effect.

Love-energy is the power that brought everything into existence, and from which everything is derived. The Elements of Fire, Air, Water and Earth stem from it. The whole of Creation quite literally was brought about by the power of Love. This Love-energy should not be confused with sex-energy, though this can be a positive expression of it. In shamanic understanding, love is an unconditional sharing of the experience of life – of the Life Force- and desires only the harmonious growth and development of whatever it is directed towards.

In a human being this Love-energy arouses feelings of joy and happiness in both the receiver and the giver because it actually produces a secretion that nourishes not only the physical body but the entire being. That is why when you smile at someone they’ll smile back –an immediate response to a warm inner feeling that someone desires their well-being. In an instant Love-energy has been give out and returned, and the atmosphere transformed.
