The work of Jerry Jampolsky and Diane Cirincione has touched the world one person at a time. Their work spans the globe and the hearts of all those who have practiced the principles Attitudinal Healing This section on their website summarizes and clarifies the principles of Attitudinal Healing
…there are numerous areas in which the Jampolsky Outreach Foundation (JOF) continues to serve, the common thread that unites them is clear and consistent. Namely, the principles of Attitudinal Healing transcend situational differences, customs and cultures, religions and races, and are the cornerstones of how to practically apply universal spiritual principles in everyday life.
Regards our primary identity as spiritual beings and that the essence of our inner nature is love.
Defines true ‘health’ as inner peace and ‘healing’ as the letting go of fear.
Offers the willingness to find another way of looking at the world, at life, and at death.
Views everyone as equal students and teachers to each other, recognizing that we can learn something from everyone we meet.
Teaches that forgiveness is the key to happiness through healing our relationships with all others and with ourselves.
Experiences love as the most powerful source of healing in the world.
Views the purpose of all communication as joining and regards happiness as a choice.
Recognizes that we are all worthy of love and that happiness is our own responsibility as well as our natural state of being.
Affirms that it is not other people or circumstances outside ourselves that cause us to be in conflict or upset. Rather, it is our own thoughts, feelings, judgments, and attitudes about people and events that cause us distress.
Discovers the negative affect that holding on to grievances, blaming others, and condemning ourselves has, so that we can choose to no longer find value in them.
Asserts that when we let go of fear, only love remains and love is the answer to all the problems we face in life.
Recognizes that we can choose to perceive ourselves and others as one of two ways; either loving, or as fearful, giving a call for help. Fear is shown as anger, rage, violence, etc., towards others and ourselves.
Sets the goal of inner peace and living a life focused on unconditional love.
Supports the notion that as we reach our own hand out into the darkness to help another back into the light…we discover that it is our own.
Introduces the dynamics of personal choice and total responsibility for healing our own minds and for having harmony and integrity in all that we think say and do.
The core of Attitudinal Healing is that rather than trying to change other people, we focus on changing our own minds. In order to experience peace in the world, it first must begin within ourselves. When inner peace is achieved by replacing the destructive feeling generated by fear, our outer world also changes. As each of us heals, the world heals with us.
