Dr. Gabor Maté - Attachement Theory - Love is Not Enough
The following video is for parents, and it’s such a wonderful reminder from Dr Gabor Mate for parents to practice staying mindful, present and calm.
The research shows us that this applies to pregnancy and well beyond.
Prior to the days when we knew that our child (the foetus) inherited our biome, our genome and even our heart rate variability, my Mother encouraged me to take it easy as a young mother. That was 15 years ago and she was insightfully correct.
Inherently, she knew what the research was yet to prove in the decades to come.
Now raising a teenager and continually learning over the years from wonderful experts in the field, I have come to understand that our relationships are very significant dance, a daily “tango”.
It is a dance that affects your health and the health of those around you, more so than any other factor, even more than our diet and our daily exercise.
I have learned that my state of ‘being’ significantly affects the other’s state of being, and far more than any ‘love language’ can ever express.
The research supports the theory that you can’t just love another, you really have to cultivate presence and mindfulness for them to feel safe… and loved.
There is so much fascinating research into the science of LOVE 🙂
