Michael Reed Gach on a Spiritual Healing Path: Guidance from the Universe

On the Path – Ask and you shall receive.

I grew up in Los Angeles in the 1950s, when it still had a small town feeling with corner neighborhood stores. Over the years, I saw lifestyles change, and people became more driven and stressed out.

In high school I said to myself, “There’s got to be more to life than this.” During those years, I was depressed on a regular basis and lacked purpose in my life. During one of my deepest, darkest times, when I was a freshman in college, I walked up in the Hollywood Hills in the darkness of the night and cried out to the Universe, “What is the purpose of my life?” I listened for the answer and the words came clearly —

“Love, serve, and heal.”


I asked what form this should take, and the voice told me,


“The form doesn’t matter. Choose to love, serve, and heal – as purely, directly, and as powerfully as you can.”


For the past 50 years, these words have guided my life,

giving me direction to make a difference,

bringing more healing into the world.
