Go deep within your inner stillness, and feel Divine Mind’s presence within. Hold out your empty hands, symbolic of leaving preconceptions behind; symbolic of seeking True answers, and ask, “What is the essence of healing?” Let these words resonate within you, as though in a vast cavern. The word essence reverberates with these thoughts, “For what do you care most deeply?” “What is your own essence?”; “What is your Truth?”; “Where is your deepest hurt, your pain, your sorrow, that all may be healed?”
As I went into my inner stillness, I felt and understood something I haven’t felt in a long time. It was something familiar, something I had thought about and understood at some point in my life, but it seems that I had forgotten it…until today.
It is summed up in the Louise Hay quote that (imho) brought her to the forefront of the metaphysical healing-movement 30 years ago: “In the infinity of Life where I am, all is perfect, whole and complete.”
Words limit how I can describe my inner experience, but in the best way I can…here is my understanding…using that Louise Hay quote as the basis for an example: Life is infinite. Life is where I am. I am within infinity; infinity is within me. Infinity and I are One; I cannot be outside of it. Life, in its infinity, is perfect, whole, and complete…always. Every point, every possibility of infinite Life, exists now. Anywhere I “go”, anywhere I “am”, within Life is perfect, whole, and complete. All points within life, all possibilities of where I may “go” or where I “am” are all equally perfect, whole, and complete.
Read that slowly. Feel it, and see if you don’t feel your mind go, “Aaaahhhhh, I understand”.
Here are the implications, which may not be readily apparent:
- If all possibilities already exist, there is nothing new to be created. Everything is already now. Your perfect health already exists, now.
- If everything in infinity is equal, then having health or having sickness is equal. Infinity does not distinguish between health and sickness. To infinity, anything you experience is perfect, whole, and complete, because infinity knows nothing other than perfection, wholeness, and completion.
- If infinity does not distinguish between health and sickness, there is nothing preventing health, other than the barriers you have placed on it (or perhaps, better stated, the lack of awareness or understanding that you currently have within your own consciousness of infinity).
- All you need to do is be at that point of perfect health (easier said than done, I know…but it really is that simple).
Here is what I did, what I visualized, to be at that point for the current situations in my life:
First, I thought about what I want to heal (and I am using healing broadly). I realized that in all of the areas I want to heal, including physical vitality, abundance, karma yoga, household, and relationships, I have an underlying, but permeating feeling of dissatisfaction. I have a great house, a great family, a lucrative job, and good health…why do I feel dissatisfied? And then I realized that I feel guilty because I feel dissatisfied. Underneath that, I found some anger about feeling guilty about feeling dissatisfied; after all, don’t I deserve the best, most abundant, perfect life I can possibly have? Along with the anger, I felt disappointed, because, even though my life is really, really, really good, there are things I want to improve, and I haven’t yet, so I am disappointed in myself for not doing and being everything I possibly can do and be.
Yeah, I found a lot. If you do this, and you start to uncover stuff, please remember not to judge it, or yourself. Just acknowledge, accept, and let go. Write it down, as a way to acknowledge (“I feel dissatisfied about…”); accept it immediately (“I accept myself and my feelings”), then let it go (burn that paper! Or just crumple it up and throw it away, allowing yourself to feel it release from your body/mind/emotions).
This was the clearing, the releasing of the barriers that stand in my way (the part of the Guiding Thought that says, “Where is your deepest hurt, your pain, your sorrow, that all may be healed?”).
Second, I pictured a cube, and told myself that it represents the infinity of life. I pictured a point (it does not matter what point) within the cube, and I labeled that point, Where I Am Now. I visualized as neutrally as possible, everything in my current experience, all of the things I had felt dissatisfied about.
Third, I visualized a different point (it does not matter what point), and labeled that point, Perfect House, Perfect Work, Perfect Health, Perfect Income.
Finally, I moved my mind to that second point. I saw the “line” between my current point and that point. I felt my mind/body/emotions shift to that point. Remember, that point already exists. There is nothing to do, nothing to strive for, nothing to gain, to know, or to manipulate. Just go there. Feel it. Be there. You don’t have to know the details. You don’t have to know the path. You don’t have to know what it looks like. All you have to do is Know that place exists for you, right now. Then move your mind/energy to it.
The more often you go there, the faster your outer appearances will change. This is the fast track to getting through a consciousness Journey. Just do it, as the saying goes.
And what if you get there and you don’t like it? Just do it again. The possibilities are limitless.
