Product description

Product Description

Not loving the self, or simply not knowing about the importance of loving the self, or never having learned to love the self results in some of the most profound pain a human being can experience. You may believe that the pain of loss, abuse, abandonment, or disloyalty is the deepest pain, and in some sense you are right. But it is precisely by not loving the self, or not knowing how to love the self, that the other kinds of pain manage to get an iron grip on our hearts, because if we did love the self, or if we knew how to love the self, we would be able to care for the self in such a way that those other kinds of pain would be much less overwhelming.

This book offers the promise that it is possible to learn how to love yourself (and more significantly, shows you how), and as you begin, even with your very first steps, you will become aware of changes in your daily existence that already serve to create a better life. As you continue on this path of self-love, every segment of your life becomes transformed in step to your own growth. Loving the self brings inner freedom, joy, harmony, and peace. Above all it allows you to connect to your own inner divinity and to know you will never again be alone.

"In The Power of Your Heart, Dr. Kortsch takes the well known self-help axiom of “first, one must love oneself, before one can love others” and proceeds to deliver nothing less than a profound and authentic way of living and being that heals the soul and improves one’s interactions and relationships with others. By clearly distinguishing her love-based concept of self-love from the fear-based concepts of narcissism, egotism, and neediness, Dr. Kortsch provides a step by step guide that, if honestly applied, puts one on a life’s path of peace, satisfaction, contentment, and happiness." Thomas Campbell; author of My Big TOE

"From childhood we are taught to mercilessly nitpick our essential being in pursuit of a mythical perfection. With deep insight and impeccable clarity, Dr. Gabriella Kortsch, Ph.D., turns the tables to illuminate the liberation possible when loving ourselves unconditionally. In so doing, she provides a road map to undiscovered bliss and wholeness. A must-read for anyone on the path to self-understanding!" Paul Rademacher, Author of A Spiritual Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe: Travel Tips for the Spiritually Perplexed, CEO of Lucid Greening, Editor of Inner Story Magazine

"This book explains the vital importance of loving yourself and why that is not in the least bit selfish. If there is a lot of love inside you, then you have more to share, in fact, it becomes a bottomless well. With love in your heart, your choices will be based on understanding, compassion and empathy. An inspiring read!" Peter Shepherd; Founder, TransForMind; author of Daring To Be Yourself

"The Power of Your Heart is a book to satisfy the soul’s hunger and deserves to be read by every adult, parent, teacher and adolescent. It assures us that it is not just permissible, but essential, to love ourselves, undoing the conditioning that has kept us in a state of unworthiness and self-doubt, and sets us on the path to emotional, psychological, and spiritual growth. Love of self is a prerequisite to love of others and love is the foundation on which we are building a new world of compassion, joy and good will." Linda Stitt; Author of Acting My Age

In the art of loving the self, this book takes the phrase 'self help' to the next level. Gabriella Kortsch has made the case and built the foundation that ultimately will become your own self-empowering path to true happiness and prosperity. Using real world situations along with quotes from the masters scattered throughout the book, you will soon discover the power of your own heart and make it a habit of loving the self. Michael Habernig & April Hannah; Producers of The Path: Afterlife & The Path: Beyond the Physical

5.0 out of 5 stars An important book that teaches us why self-love is important, guiding us to overcome past pain & creating our self-love. 15 November 2013

I would highly recommend this book. Growing up in a difficult and dysfunctional family I have been working on issues that I became aware of when I was grown. It has been a personal journey of growth and learning to take responsibility for and come to believe in myself. I have followed Dr. Kortsch over the last few years, reading her blog and her last 2 books. I have read many self help books over the last 20 years and her writing is unique and seems to “hit the nail on the head”. Her writing seems to be extremely specific to my needs and there is an element of her own personal struggles and growth in all she writes. Her thoughts and teachings do not come solely from scholarly education (although she has that as well), but from personal, philosophical and thoughtful introspection which the reader can understand.
This book explains why we may not love ourselves (and what that means) as well as why we might seek to get our love for ourselves from others and why that does not work. The book explains how we can become more aware and the steps we need to take to treat ourselves well and ultimately understand that we hold the key to our own happiness in life. This is a concept that Dr. Kortsch has written about a lot and it is the bottom line. There are practical ideas towards the end of the book that anyone can follow and benefit from. This is a book that one can refer to again and again for assistance in personal growth and becoming more self-actualized. I think this author writes clearly and sensitively and the concepts that she teaches seem to reach readers such as myself.
5.0 out of 5 stars I Love The Power of Your Heart: Loving the Self 30 December 2013

I loved Gabrielle’s first two books “Rewiring the Soul” and “The Tao of Spiritual Relationships”. “The Power of Your Heart” is another wonderful book about relationships, life purpose, and self-love. There are ten chapters that start you on a journey of identifying areas or causes of suffering, how we seek love outside of ourselves and the consequences, how to overcome your past, and how to get to a place of self love. Gabriella provides a number of tools in the five Appendixes and in the Bibliography to help guide you to a place of self love. The book is filled with valuable information. A few of my favorite quotes include:

“People can let you down, leave you, or die. Material things can disappear, as can youth or professional and social positions. If any of that happens, and if the key to your happiness lies there, then what are you going to do?”

“Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.”

“By loving the self, the other three – being aware, recognizing choice, and being self-responsible – fall into place, because it is impossible to love the self without them.”

I wish I had read Gabriella’s books many years ago. Having read her books and having the tools that she provides in “The Power of Your Heart” would have shortened my journey. I really enjoy Gabriella’s writing. Over the last year she has become one of my favorite writers. I am looking forward to reading her upcoming book “The Master Calls a Butterfly”.

Dr. Gabby is my favorite author! Not only does she write great & informative spiritual books, but she is also giving us great insight as an expert in the field of psychology in each of her books. This book-like her others is filled w/a wealth of help & knowledge to advance my spiritual & personal path-which truly only begins when I can look inside & start w/a decision to love-me & then continue onward & upward in that same momentum. I am truly greatful for her contribution with this inspiring book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fount of wisdom and grace 28 November 2013
By Tom Shantivanam - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
As a recovering alcoholic of many years(thanks to the extraordinary and unmerited kindness of my then doctor and later of equally kind and compassionate professionals in a treatment centre in Ireland),I am still sober, a day at a time, with the on-going support and wisdom of Alcoholics Anonymous here in Spain.
With sobriety has come the realisation and gratitude that the world is a magical place ready to help and nourish us once we ask for help.And now the magic continues with the publication of this beautiful and life-enhancing book.Dr Kortsch carries her erudition lightly and has that rare gift of touching the heart directly and truthfully with the simplest language that resonates with truth and a deep compassion.Language has the power to heal and Dr Kortsch in every sentence of this marvrllous book helps the genuine seeker to access the magnificent possibilities of his or her soul.I was and am captivated by the warmth and truthfullness of her engaging prose peppered throughout with wisdom sayings and her own personal experiences that raise this book above the ordinary This book was obviously written out of a deep love for, and understanding of, the human condition.This book is truly a gift in my life that can only deepen my on-going recovery ,illuminating as it does how to address ,heal and resolve our innermost conflicts and confusions.
