Who does the healing? How can you heal yourself or others. Is it possible? When we talk about the Law of Attraction or God or Universal Mind (which are all the same), how does this or does this have anything to do with healing? Depending on your spiritual belief the answer will be different for everyone. I personally do not believe there is a God who sits in judgment and throws down a blessing once in a while if we are good. I believe healing is, or can be, more immediate; we do have a part in healing along with the God in us. We are more than our physical appearance. We are all fields of energy attracting to us that which we put out.
How is your energy? Are you attracting people into your life that can be a positive influence on you? I will now talk about my own personal experiences surrounding healing. I am a Science of Mind Minister and have learned what the 'science' part of SOM is. If you practice this (or anything else) and it works for you, then you proved a theory. This is the science of SOM. You also helped yourself in the process. Let me give you some examples. When I was living in Connecticut, I had a fr iend who was Catholic. He asked me to be a part of his prayer group. In this group they would pray the rosary. I am open to all things because it all leads to the same place. So I participated for a while. These people in the group really believed in what they were doing, so the energy was excellent.
One day one of the group members came with a request. She was head nurse in a teaching hospital in New Haven, Ct. She told us of this little boy who was 12 yrs old and diagnosed with an incurable disease. He had all the tests and X-rays and was given 6 months or so to live. For the next couple of weeks we all prayed the rosary and and asked for Mary to heal this boy. Soon after this I left the group and moved to another town. Around a year later a letter found me and it was from the nurse in the prayer group and it explained how this little boy when given a blood test and then his new X-rays were found to have no more of the disease in him. I was told the doctors had no explanation other than it was a miracle.
Who healed the boy? Was it Mary and the rosary, or was it the belief that praying the rosary would heal the boy, which then it would be the Law of Attraction or God working thru us and reflecting back that which we were projecting.
Again while living in Connecticut, my wife and I founded a Center for Spiritual healing and studies. At this time I was teaching or taking classes everyday. My energy level was high because of the amount of positive input I was receiving. One Christmas morning after making bacon, my wife unfortunately poured hot grease into a cold, wet jar. It exploded and she burned her hand and arm. We went to the emergency room, and after being checked out the doctor told us after the burns healed she would need a skin graph if she did not want scars. At that moment I was moved by a great inner urging to put my hands over her hand and arm and pray. I knew that my words woul d be reflected back to me just as I spoke them. I felt extreme peace. We were given some special cream for burns and sent home. Today she has no scars. Who did the Healing? Was it me, or God working thru me? Or was it the Universe reflecting back to me that which I sent out? Or was it all of the above?.
Another example. This time I was in Florida, and was associated with a group of physics and healers. I personally observed laying on of hands and healing. Again. how did the healing happen? In the Bible when Jesus was lecturing and a old woman knew if she could just touch the robes of Jesus she would be healed. Then Jesus said, "Your faith has healed you." Was it Jesus who did the healing, or was that the woman's belief was so strong and absolute that did the healing?! Did she heal herself?
These are all interesting stories and the conclusion I come to is that it does not matter what you believe in, but it is the energy in that belief that you transmit from your self, which is doing the healing. What do you believe? Let me know - it is important for my and your spiritual growth.
