Healing through the Deep Love
by Robert Ibrahim Jaffe, M.D Robert
Ibrahim Jaffe, M.D is a licensed medical doctor, clairvoyant, healer
and spiritual teacher who co-founded, with his wife, the School of
Energy Mastery which became the Jaffe Institute of Spiritual and Medical
Healing. Dr. Jaffe believes that all of us can heal our lives by connecting
with the deep love of God. He has done extensive research on the dynamics
of energetic healing and how emotional and psychological issues alter
the human energy field and cause disease. The following article contains
excerpts from an interview by Phil Bolstra.
What causes disease in the first place?
The soul is here to learn certain lessons in its attempt to perfect
itself. When the flow of the souls learning is restricted,
usually by a persons ego, disease occurs. By unrestricting
the soul and allowing it to express itself and learn its lesson,
the disease disappears. Ultimately, all disease comes from fear.
In order to heal, you need to understand what that fear is, disconnect
from it, and reconnect to the deep love.
Exactly what do you mean by the deep love?
Love is a difficult thing to intellectualize. Most people who speak
of love are referring to human love because thats what their
experience is. But human love is a mirror of a much, much deeper
love, which is God's love for us.
How did you first come to realize the relationship between emotions
When I was studying medicine at the University of Illinois in Chicago,
I observed people with schizophrenic and psychotic disorders at
a local V.A. Hospital. I saw that factors like family support, having
a loved one close by, and hope could improve someones condition.
I recognized that hopelessness leads to depression, an emotional
state accompanied by physical manifestations. I was pretty clear
at that point that the mind and emotions affect the healing process
and that there were psycho-emotional aspects of disease. I didnt
know what those were but I knew that they were there.
When did you realize that every physical and emotional issue
had an energetic root?
I became very sick with an eye infection that ultimately blinded
me in one eye. I was determined to learn everything I could about
it. I tried every traditional medical approach available for six
months but nothing worked.
How did you end up healing yourself?
I finally allowed myself to express my anger. One day it just poured
out of me. As I started to yell and shout in rage, I sensed a strong
energy change taking place. There was a spinning sensation and a
flickering around my eye and then I literally heard a pop. All of
a sudden, for the first time in four months, I could see a ray of
light with my bad eye.
What did you learn from that experience?
From that point forward, I understood deeply the intimate relationship
between repressed emotions and physical health. I immediately shifted
the focus of my practice and studied everything I could about the
When did you first realize you were clairvoyant?
When I was practicing in Hawaii, a man in his late 60s came in.
His complexion was very bad, almost green. He said he didnt
feel well but didnt know why. As I was listening to him, I
saw an energy behind his heart that looked like a telephone line
waving as it falls down from a pole. I had no idea what this chord
of energy was but it gave me an incredible feeling of uneasiness
in my stomach. I called 911, but he died in the lobby as they were
taking him out of the hotel.
You cured yourself from heart disease in 1994. What happened?
Through the energy work I was doing, I was taking on more and more
energy from other people. The stress of carrying so many peoples
energies started to weigh heavily on me. One day I looked in the
mirror and saw my own heart chord detached and floating
and, intuitively, I knew I had a short time to live. I started to
develop signs of angina. I couldnt even walk anymore. I was
so tired I couldnt even get out of a chair. I had lost my
enthusiasm for life.
Shortly after that, I met a great teacher who taught me how to
live in the deep love. As I opened my heart to it, the deep love
flowed into me more and more. I put my trust completely in the deep
love and eventually made a full recovery. Now when I heal someone,
I simply serve as a channel for Gods deep love, which I embody
and give to them. In essence, I give them a taste of the deep love
and, if they take it in and drink from it, they begin to heal. I
dont have to carry them in my own heart or have to be responsible
for them in this way.
So when youre healing someone, what youre really
doing is teaching them how to live in the deep love?
Exactly. Our job is to live as deeply as possible with Gods
love, to hold that love in our being like a bright shining light,
to radiate that light to others, and to help them drink it in. Our
job is not to carry others on our own shoulders until we are too
weak to even live ourselves.
Are you able to heal people instantaneously?
Sometimes the results are very dramatic - one womans ovarian
cancer shrunk in 15 minutes under my hands - but how long it takes
to heal someone depends on many factors. Even when a healing is
instantaneous, you usually need to follow up and make sure the person
understands why the disease occurred and support them in not falling
back into old, destructive patterns.
So the patient is also responsible for healing their disease?
Absolutely. The issues that created the disease also need to be
cleaned out and only the patient can do that. You can
guide them but ultimately its their choice. Its also
important to remember that some people may not want to be healed
because the disease is serving them in some way. If a patient is
resisting on some level, the healing may be ineffective.
You travel all across the country offering a three-day introductory
workshop. What is that?
Its an introduction to the principles of energy healing through
the deep love of God. The first thing we do is take people directly
to God and connect them into the deep love. This is not from the
mind or the emotions; its from a very, very deep place in
the heart. If you look at it energetically, the deep love of God
is pure white light, while human love is pink and green. Gods
love is the most beautiful white light you could imagine. The deep
love nurtures all that is. In other words, what milk is to the body
of a baby, love is to the spirit of humanity. And God wants to give
us this absolute milk. He wants to feed us so our whole
beings are nurtured.
