Family therapist, Virginia Satir, through research concluded that: Humans need four hugs a day for survival; eight hugs a day for maintenance; and twelve hugs a day for growth. Spiritual gurus, such as Mata Amritanandmayi advocate hugging because of passing the divine energy from person to person.
Many people feel embarrassed or uncomfortable giving hugs to people outside their circle of friends and family. Satir advocated offering hugs because people are bound to feel grateful to you for offering.
Praise is another highly effective, but, overlooked way to exchange divine energy. You can give a silent wave of praise to everyone you meet or pass without them being the wiser. Then, watch the results.
Simply send praise from your heart for the good that they are doing, for the good they seek. Each time you encounter someone in a store, building, work place, service desk or while driving, send a silent wave of praise and see the results. More often then not, you will see the person turn and smile or give a nod of recognition.I have practiced giving hugs and sending praise to strangers, acquaintances, family and friends for many years. The results are amazing. See – “I Give Hugs” http://ezinearticles.com/?I-Give-Hugs&id=343721.
