THE FUNDAMENTAL ASPECT and the fundamental focus of all metaphysical teaching is probably
spiritual healing. What, really, is spiritual healing? Most people think of spiritual healing as faith healing,
but it is not. Faith healing has to do with an unquestioned belief in some great God “out there” or some vast power
— also “out there.” Sometimes it takes the form of a shaman, a person who is empowered to produce extraordinary,
magical effects in the world of the person who believes in him. All this is variously called shamanistic healing,
psychic healing, or faith healing.
In Africa, the Philippines, and other parts of the world there have been individuals who perform a kind of faith
or psychic healing called psychic surgery. In psychic surgery, the operator, usually a medium, appears to perform
all kinds of alleged surgery on the so-called etheric body — an aspect of the body that is supposedly above or
within the physical body. This is an interesting phenomenon, but it is not spiritual healing as we understand it.
There is no element of the rational mind or of the logical consciousness brought into the situation.
Spiritual healing is the restoration of wholeness or wellness to one's experience.
It is recognizing, accepting, and realizing the atmosphere of God, or the perfect spiritual
idea of being, in the individual. It removes the toxins of distorted self-acceptance that appear to have separated
the person from wholeness.
In the spiritual mind healing process, we do not deal with unquestioned belief in any holy person, religious rite,
sacred place or object. We deal directly with the truth of Being. We should understand that Truth is something
we perceive and accept as part of the underlying Reality of Life. Spiritual Mind Treatment is the way to neutralize
and dissolve inner patterns that bring about outer experiences of disorder, disease, and disturbance of the human
condition. Universal Law is the process which brings about health. It is the result of the Law being used in the
correct way. Disease is always the result of using the Law of the Creative Process in a distorted way. The inner
patterns of consciousness inevitably appear as an outer world of experience.
In spiritual healing you become conscious of the truth that your life is the Life of God, or the Great Spirit.
You know that there is an infinite, eternal, ongoing creative Intelligence that moves through a creative process
that produced you. It is a human being's destiny to be creative. Much use of the Creative Law is constructive,
but too frequently it is negative and destructive.
How can we uncover the essential Truth? Through recognizing, understanding, and appreciating the logic of a primal
Harmony. When we perceive the reality of wholeness, then Truth takes over our lives. Mental/spiritual treatment
must come after a spiritual awakening. We are the administrators of Truth in our own lives. And Truth is always
the sovereign and total remedy for all apparent difficulties, problems — and, yes, in harmony.
The magnificent ancient Chinese classic I Ching, or
Book of Changes, makes a penetrating statement: “Even
a single passion still lurking in the heart has power to obscure reason.” A single distorted opinion, or belief
and acceptance, can express as an attitude or way of relating to life that will cover the Truth within and adulterate
the purity of the Mind-force within the individual. We are all splendid entities through which the Power and Presence
of Truth called the Great Spirit can flow and express Itself."
What follows can be called seven essentials in the practice of Spiritual Mind Healing. I am not describing the
treatment technique but seven essentials that you can incorporate in your thinking before you practice Spiritual
Mind Treatment. Then you will move from “faith” healing, or a blind belief comprised of hope and fear, to confidence,
assurance, and a state of mind that says “Yes” to life.
Number One: The recognition of a personal union with the
You can't escape this truth, because it is what
you have come from and where you function and exist both now and always.
Number Two: There can be no compromises, no negotiations
with so-called evil.
Evil means denial of good. It is the negative and
destructive use of thoughts, feelings, and emotions that must be dissolved.
Number Three: Face up to your shortcomings.
This is absolutely essential. Your shortcomings
are the illogical and irrational experiences of states of consciousness
and feeling. Don't gloss over things and situations. Face them. Take
time to observe yourself in relationship to everyone and everything.
Number Four: Don't fight the negatives or evil, Realize
By knowing the Truth, you get rid of mental entanglements
and blocks such as anger, resentment, grudges, jealousies, etc.
Number Five: Practice continued self-examination.
Observe your mood swings and states of thought
and feeling. These are the guideposts for self-work. They are describing
areas of vulnerability to negative belief systems.
Number Six: Don't look outside for the source of your problems.
Don't blame, but look within yourself for causes
of outer distress. Realize and state that there are no enemies in your
world and no battles to be undertaken. Look within yourself and address
yourself to whatever patterns may exist to be dissolved in treatment.
As you neutralize the cause, you will get rid of the disordered effects.
Number Seven: See internal negatives as simply inversions
Don't be fearful and don't get angry. Face these “inversions” honestly. Then perceive the
Truth in which you recognize and affirm the good. Then you will understand that good comes from the great Source
of all Life within you. Through this practice you appropriate and distribute spiritual power.
So it is up to you. The time is always favorable. It is never too late or too early to begin. Power is there. Wholeness
is there. They are the very essence of your being. And the techniques of Spiritual Mind Treatment are easily learned.
As you progress, you will begin to feel empowered. You will become your own shaman, as it were. You will become
your own means of internal and external change or transformation.
Then you will begin to experience spiritual healing every day of your life.
