Cosmic Relief: Healing Through Mental and Spiritual Law
Can mental and spiritual principles be applied to the healing of physical conditions – to our own or those of our loved ones? Absolutely!
Disease is actually dis-ease in mind or spirit. The body is an outer reflection of what is going on within. Now it doesn't mean you have to necessarily know what is going on. Yes, it can be at an unconscious level. It may be the result of faulty patterns in the subconscious. It can be temporary or it can be chronic. But the body and mind are not separate entities. Our bodies, minds and emotions are one. The body restore our mental and emotional state. It is our mirror. And we can change our reflection.
Mainstream – Finally
Even conventional medicine is now recognizing this more and more – there has been major media exposure in recent years in Time, Newsweek and other notable publications and we are seeing this more and more. I read in the news awhile back that there are even hospitals now in the US where you can request "absent prayer" along with conventional medical treatment. There were case studies done in a San Francisco hospital with cardiac patients – a blind study where half the patients received prayer and the other half did not. The statistics were amazing in that there were faster recoveries and greater survival rate among those prayed for (more on this below).
Bernie S. Siegel, MD, (bio) [http://www.brianweiss.com/kindred/siegel.htm], embraces a philosophy that is at the forefront of a society grappling with medical ethics and spiritual issues. His best selling books have broken new ground in the field of healing and include:
Love, Medicine & Miracles :
Lessons Learned about Self Healing from a Surgeon's Experience with Exceptional Patients and
Peace, Love & Healing :
Bodymind Communication and the Path to Self Healing
In this excerpt, "How to Heal Yourself", from his book, Prescriptions for Living , Dr. Siegel states:
Physicians call the most dramatic healings "spontaneous remissions." Once we have labeled them, we learn nothing from the people in whom those remissions take place. We cannot afford to ignore these remarkable successes. We are all at risk for a great many diseases, and as the world gets smaller the list of things we are exposed to grows larger. We need to learn from people who recover and people who stay healthy.
Dr. O. Carl Simonton, acclaimed oncologist and author, many years ago achieved recognition in the field of oncology and mind / body medicine with his pioneer work with cancer patients. He cured hundreds of cases of terminally ill cancer patients with the use of visual imagery tapes with which the patients visualized "Pac Men" eating up the cancer cells.
His 30 years of groundbreaking work is well documented and has been published extensively. His renowned cancer center in California, www.simontoncenter.com , and his work is well recognized by mainstream medicine and universities. Since that time there have been thousands more healed. His earlier tapes are still available along with the more enhanced modern material. The foundation of his work is based on the belief system of the patient, with or without accompanying medical treatment.
A Personal Teacher
One of my own personal teachers, Champion K. Teutsch, PhD, together with his late wife, Joel Marie Teutsch, became famous when they authored, From Here to Greater Happiness or How to Change Your Life for Good , which permanently changed for good the lives of hundreds of thousands of grateful readers all over the world. You can find the book on amazon.com.
Later, Joel Marie Teutsch's masterful presentation entitled Your Right to Perfect Health: Mental and Spiritual Healing Principles and Champion K. Teutsch's Non-Medical Answers to Cancer, Heart Disease and Other Conditions , included professional secrets of this pioneer couple and outstanding success stories.
When I was seeing him, Champion had his practice in Los Angeles and was chair of the International Human Research Center Sunray in Moscow (a renowned psychology professor at Moscow State University was president and a physicist formerly with the Soviet space program was vice-president) . Champion was also chair of a similar organization in Tel Aviv, Israel. He was certifying professionals and qualified lay persons in the US, Russia and Isreal as practitioners of his methodology.
After a lecture and demonstration on a prostate cancer case, he was appointed visiting professor of medicine by the former dean of the university of Florida's college of medicine. The dean resigned shortly after meeting Champion to devote his energies to alternative or complementary medicine.
Faith and Expectancy
People from all over the world go to Lourdes, France to step into the "holy water" and spontaneous healings are legendary. How? Someone steps into the Fountain of Lourdes and their faith and expectancy produces a reaction in the subconscious mind, which has the perfect memory of every cell in their body. And a healing is produced.
I was in a class about 20 years ago – a New Thought class. A young woman and her husband attended this class, which was based on changing words and thoughts and using affirmations to manifest. This woman was given six months to live. I remember the whole class went country western dancing a few months later and I watched in fascination as this woman and her husband were having one heck of a time two stepping. She was completely healed.
Now if people with serious life-threatening illnesses can somehow be healed through mental "adjustments", then does it not stand to reason that less serious conditions can be overcome even more easily?
Types of Healing
Now, when we are learning to use mental and spiritual principles for health and healing, we are not ignoring medical or nutritional intervention. When we apply these principles, healings can occur in two ways:
• Spontaneous – There are spontaneous, natural healings that result when the subconscious mind accepts the healing idea as the dominant thought. The subconscious mind has the perfect memory of every cell in your body and will return those cells to perfection once the “dis-ease” thought has been overcome. Spontaneous healings are the result of your faith, expectation and altered belief patterns – not only consciously but also at a deeper core level. You can learn to create these new patterns that will result in healing.
• Medical / Nutritional / Lifestyle – Your healing may also result when you are guided intuitively to the appropriate medical doctor or other health practitioner, nutritional counseling and treatment and / or lifestyle changes that result in the healing of your condition. Again, this inspired action or guidance results from the shifting of the belief patterns in the subconscious. Once the shift occurs, you will automatically be guided to your solution in the form that is necessary to fulfill your new thought pattern of healing and health. So, that guidance may include being led to any of the numerous channels that are “handpicked” by your subconscious to guarantee your result.
Remember that the subconscious is compulsive in nature. Once it accepts the seed thought of perfect health, it will connect with all the forces in the Universe to create that destiny, in the same way that those creative forces will be attracted to and move on a seed planted in fertile soil to create its destiny as a plant or flower.
So the point here is that anyone who wishes to be healed of an illness or condition and opens their mind to BELIEVE that it is possible, can indeed produce that healing if shown how to influence the subconscious mind to accept the thought of health instead of illness , despite outer appearances. That's the key – understanding that the inner state creates the outer condition. To impress the subconscious mind with a new image would require an abrupt reversal in your language patterns and thoughts with regard to your illness or condition, but this can be accomplished and often in a much shorter time than you can imagine. There are techniques to speed the process.
Students are attracted to my Feel Free to Prosper prosperity program primarily for financial increase. However, I found that many of my students experienced unexpected healings of physical conditions as they were doing the prosperity work. That's because you already have all the potential within you to tap into the healing energy of the Universe to renew, rebuild and restore your perfect health. Often just by eliminating the negative patterns in our subconscious of a general nature, we create an opening to our source of guidance to radiant health and vitality.
An Ounce of Prevention
In the same way, anyone who wishes to prevent any form of illness can also do so using this most valuable asset – an open mind. Using these principles is a tremendously beneficial way to maintain good health even if one has no particular condition to address. I personally have conditioned my subconscious to total health, and am able to immediately ward off any sign of impending “invasion”. But I have had a couple of experiences over the years that were extremely enlightening that taught me how shifting my thoughts and reaching the subconscious could bring immediate guidance to the perfect solution.
And a Pound of Intervention
Another important aspect of this work is our influence in affecting the healings of others. As noted above, this has been addressed as “absent” or “distant” healing. Proof that our consciousness can reach out to heal others has been scientifically substantiated. In an issue of Wings , the Feel Free to Prosper Newsletter, I present an introduction and a link to a fascinating interview with best-selling author Larry Dossey, MD. You can find the interview information
My sincere wish is that this information will take your health goals to an inspired level and speed you on your journey to wholeness and well-being – our true wealth in life.
