What is healing?

It’s so valuable to ask simple questions and to allow Spirit, the Higher Holy Spirit Self give you the answer.  When you get it direct from Spirit rather it brings with it an energetic that is enlivening and can also be transformative.  

So, what is healing?

Is it healing if things change in the world of form, but consciousness hasn’t really shifted?  That kind of thing happens all the time.

Think of someone who works so hard to lose 100 pounds only to gain back 150.  That happens all the time too.  Why?  Because the consciousness that created the form didn’t change.  It only got stronger.  

If we’re focused on how the healing demonstrates in form, we may miss the healing all together.  Healing really does happen at the level of the mind, at the level of consciousness, and there’s no “guarantee” about how it will show up in form.

The symptoms and situations can change, but that doesn’t mean there’s really been a healing.  

Symptoms and situations can continue and the healing HAS occurred.

If we’re attached to seeing the healing shift in the world of form in very specific ways then we’re attached to how the form and that impedes the healing.  Why?  Because healing is ALWAYS a release of attachments to our beliefs.  

If we believe healing has to look a certain way then we aren’t really desiring a healing, we’re desiring a state change, a physical change – and of course that’s perfectly reasonable and understandable, but it’s not the true healing that changes our lives.

Consider this simply as an illustration:

A person has unresolved bitterness.  That bitterness shows up as cancer.  The cancer experience gives the person an opportunity to look within and deal with the bitterness and heal it at the mind/heart level.  The cancer heals.  Maybe someone believes the healing happened because of a chemo treatment or a change in diet and exercise.  But someone else might have done the same exact diet and exercise, and become even more bitter, and they don’t experience a healing in the body.  

Still, there’s always benefit from everything.  A Course in Miracles teaches us, “everything is helpful.”

Each of us has an individual curriculum.  We can’t compare, without despair.  We can’t compare and have the healing we desire.  If all that we really want is the physical healing without healing our consciousness, we’re not really interested in true healing.  All healing is at the root cause or it’s not healing.

Prayer bypasses all of this trying to work things out in the world of form – what I call “pushing density.”  

Prayer is working in the invisible – at the level of energy and the mind.  

Prayer transcends form and is healing.

Effective affirmative prayer is a direct connection with Spirit and it asks for nothing.  It’s not about getting something or making things change – true prayer is about letting go of the obstacles and recognizing that everything has already been given.  

From ACIM’s Fifty Miracle Principles – 11 and 12:

Prayer is the medium of miracles. It is a means of communication of the created with the Creator. Through prayer love is received, and through miracles love is expressed.

Miracles are thoughts. Thoughts can represent the lower or bodily level of experience, or the higher or spiritual level of experience. One makes the physical, and the other creates the spiritual.

We already have been given the power of Love in our mind.  Miracles are thoughts.

Through Prayer love is received, and through miracles love is expressed.

LOVE is the one and only healer.  Why?  Because Love is what we are.  When we’re experiencing an unhealed state in any way, it’s simply a manifestation of a block to Love.  Prayer opens our heart/mind to Love.  And Love does the healing.  

Healing is the release of the blocks to Love in our awareness.  The blocks to Love are our beliefs, which come from the decisions we’ve made – in this life or any other, can be resolved.  

I’ve found that the truth is profoundly liberating.  “The truth sets you free”  isn’t just a saying, it’s fact!  

Truth is:  we are already perfect.  We are already as holy as holy can be.  We can’t become any holier than we already are.  

Our responsibility and our opportunity is to give up the idea that we’re not already there.  That’s pretty much all there is to awakening.  

Healing is all about giving up the blocks to Love.  

When we feel a need to prove that we’re right, there’s a block to Love.

When we judge ourselves, there’s a block to Love.

When we complain, there’s a block to Love.

If we only pay attention to a few of the opportunities we have to choose Love, rather than the block, we will have healing every day. 

No matter how badly every day has gone until today, we can make a loving choice now and turn the whole thing around.

This is what I see happening for the folks who participate in our programs.  They’re releasing and healing the blocks to Love and they experience healing at all levels.

Our time for healing is now.  The opportunity to heal is now.

When we’re doing this healing work on our own, we can easily get discouraged and distracted.  It helps so much to work together with other like-minded souls, and to consistently Partner UP.  

We’re learning to remember union, unity and oneness.  It’s an active choice that we make.  If we miss 1,000 choices, just grab the next one.  Love is so powerful, it heals anything.  ANYTHING!  

Do not ever give up.  YOU are entitled to miracles!

Let’s give up any idea that we have to figure out HOW to have a healing and focus on choosing to be in the flow of Love that IS healing.  Asking for assistance is different than a prayer.  If you’re interested in learning more about what I share about prayer, you can check out my Prayer Power class that starts Monday, April 10!  Click here now to learn more now.
