Everything Responds to Love...Even Hot Water Heaters!

Oct 02, 2023

“Everything responds to love,” is the phrase that came to me this morning as I woke up at 3:30am and thinking about our broken water heater and the mess I needed to clean up today.

“Well of course it does! Everything responds to love,” I muttered to myself as I lay in bed.

But what did that mean?

What did it mean to me, right now, dealing with a broken water heater, soaked carpet, possible water damage to several rooms, the plumber’s weekend schedule…and the cost of the clean up?

I decided to find out.

Still in bed, I prayed to be shown how to bring love to the water heater and the resulting chaos. Immediately I was told to “bring it to the Principles.”

So I did.

Taking a few deep heart breaths, I went through the Be Love Principles process I’ve taught for years. Silently I asked:

  • Show me how to greet this situation with an open heart, without an agenda.
  • Show me the divine essence here.
  • Show me any forgiveness opportunities and how to forgive quickly, completely, and unconditionally.
  • Remind me I’ve never left the light of the All.

After each request I silently listened for any guidance or insights that were offered. As each request felt complete, I went on to the next. After 30+ years of doing spiritual work, I knew to trust that whatever I needed would come at the perfect time. And it did.

So what happened?

A beautiful shift from fear to love. Grinning to myself, I realized my thoughts had gone from demonizing the water heater (how could you DO this to us?!) to feelings of deep gratitude (thank you for all the years you’ve served our family). My body relaxed and my breathing became deep and full.

After completing the Be Love Principles process, I felt:

  • More calm about the entire situation
  • Confident that all would unfold in the highest and best way
  • Certain that any and all needed resources would be provided

The most amazing part was that I felt supported and remembered a beautiful passage from A Course in Miracles:

“You are not alone. No one who calls on Him can call in vain. Whatever troubles you, be certain that He has the answer, and will gladly give it to you, if you simply turn to Him and ask it of Him. He will not withhold all answers that you need for anything that seems to trouble you. He knows the way to solve all problems, and resolve all doubts. His certainty is yours. You need but ask it of Him, and it will be given you.”

(ACIM, W-ep.1:3-9)


So did the water heater respond to love? I know I did! My perspective responded to bringing love to the situation and my entire experience shifted.

Everything really does respond to love.
