Love Conquers Stress Applying the 8 Steps to Love to Various Kinds of Stress By Dr. Stephen Royal Jackson, Ph.D.
Love Conquers Stress - DR. STEPHEN ROYAL JACKSON
Dr. Jacksonís clinical experience with adults, adolescents, and children reveals how stress hurts our heart. Heart disease, stroke, and cancer are the three major killers and they are all stress related. Current stress can also hook hurts hidden in our heart.We may be going along feeling good: our hearts are open and then stress strikes. Perhaps we are stuck in traffic. Maybe our children are being oppositional or our boss is being unreasonable. Or we may suddenly find ourselves in a conflict with the person we love the most.Voices are raised and kisses turn to curses; and, if we pay close attention to our body, we may notice a subtle clenching in our heart. Our previously open and joyful heart closes. We get scared, angry, or depressed. When we are overwhelmed by current stress you can be sure that the current hook in our heart is hooking a deep hurt from our distant past that is hidden in the dark depths of our heart.Hurts from the earliest most vulnerable times of our life may suddenly erupt. The news is rife with such stories: mild-mannered man murders his family and takes his own life. His timidity masks buried rage over being beaten repeatedly as a child. Victim becomes victimizer. The inactive volcano in his heart becomes active. For years it was believed that only deep therapy could heal these hurts.The good news is that you can use the current stress to heal your deepest hurts without years of psychoanalysis or therapy. Taken from Dr. Jacksonís seminars in Stress Effectiveness Training, this book is a companion guide to 8 Steps to Love. It can help you confront and conquer the stress and conflict in your life. Isnít it time for you to make the commitment to conquer the stress in your life?
