Imagine making a huge donation to a charity and having them not know who you are!
Imagine receiving this donation and not knowing the donor.
This is unconditional love, loving without the expectation of getting love back.
This is one of the fundamentals to thriving in wellness practice.
The art and practice of ‘letting go’, giving all you have whilst the client is front of you and then stepping back and allowing them to find their own flow whatever that might be.
Dr. Andrew Arnold talks about Unconditional love and the Wellness Practice.
I understand as Wellness practitioners with good intentions we have a vision of our ideal client, our ideal practice and our ideal wellness outcomes. This is where is gets interesting. The more we ‘energetically’ let go the more likely we are to manifest and attract our ideal reality. The less we are attached to the outcomes, the more likely we will achieve our desired outcomes. The less meaning we attach to our client interactions the more likely the client will move into flow and journey with us.
Unconditional love is counter-intuitive!
Unconditional love does not mean we are not invested in our clients, the opposite. Unconditional love is about giving our clients the room to find their own path. It’s about leading and inspiring them to create positive change without force or coercion. It’s about positively deluding ourselves we are abundant, that our ideal avatars will always come and getting out of our own way. It’s about not judging or assuming we know how our clients imagine, what is true for them in their lives. It’s about recognising it is a human trait to perceive a certain reality which is not always an actual reality and be OK with that. It’s about compassion. It’s about firmness. It’s about being a stand for your client’s health and wellbeing even when they are struggling too. It’s about resisting righteousness and gently reminding our clients in teachable moments.
Unconditional love is about not selling yourselves out, not backing down from your vision, our policies, your recommended wellness journey but simultaneously knowing when to step back and allow your client’s journey to unfold.
Unconditional love is an art and a practice. It is a meditation and way of being. It is not something you DO!
Set aside a few minutes a day and meditate on these words. As my mentor always said to me, just ‘let it go’!
