Today I want to share with you an essential spiritual practice for healing an illness or injury.
The key is: Turn your attention within, become still, and enter into the peace of the Christ presence.
Forget this “fight for your life” stuff. All healing comes from a state of peace. Practice this affirmation to quiet your mind and to open to receive healing:
All power and all strength come from the silence and stillness. My mind is at peace and my body is healed.
You must transcend the human realm of appearances, fear, diagnosis, facts, family history, internet information, how the illness has traditionally responded to treatment…and move into the peace of Christ [the Presence of God in you]. It’s in this realm, the space beyond the material conditions of the world, that you touch divine life. Charles Fillmore, co-founder of Unity wrote, “Mystical power neither acts upon nor originates from the human realm.”
Practice stillness until you feel yourself make union with the Christ Spirit. This is a very private, point of oneness. Let yourself be drawn into an infinite expression of love and, in this unbounded state, you begin to feel the Christ presence as perfect life and health. Then there is a deeper shift and, you are carried into the deep structures of the Christ where the mysteries of healing are decoded and called into action. You no longer “feel” perfect life and health, you “become” perfect life and health. Healing is instantaneous in that moment. And while it may take your physical body a few days or weeks to catch up to the wholeness you have touched, your healing is assured. It is done!
I love the story in Mark 5:25-29 of the woman who pushed through the crowd to touch the hem of Jesus’ garment. We’re told that when she touched him she “felt in her body” that instantly she was healed.
Healing comes when you make contact with the Christ Spirit, the universal life force. As the woman did, you may need to boldly push through a “crowd” of “thought people” of fear, doubt or worry to reach this oneness. And I love that even if you only touch the edge of the Christ consciousness, the hem of the garment, it’s enough to receive full healing.
Your body is a manifestation of the living Spirit. It is created and sustained by God. That life force is flowing in and through you every moment, enlivening every organ, cell, action and function of your physical being. Turn within to its life-sustaining presence and let the mysteries of healing be activated for you. Right now today, you can be healed!
