Spiritual Mind Healing

What Can Be Healed?

What should we tried to heal through spiritual treatment? If we were dealing only with the power of thought, we should not expect to heal anything; but if we are dealing with a Universal Principle, why should we set any limit to Its power?

Since the Law of God is Infinite, from the spiritual viewpoint, there is no incurable disease, as opposed to a italics one. The law knows nothing about disease; it only acts. The practitioner realizes that his word is the presence, power, and activity of Truth, which is in him, which is Almighty, which is God, “Beside which there is none other.”

Possibility of spiritual mind healing, changing environment, controlling conditions, etc., through the power of right thinking, rests entirely upon the theory that we are surrounded by universal mind, which reacts to our thought – and always according to Law.

This word is the law onto the thing where unto it is spoken, and has within itself the ability, the power, and the intelligence, to execute itself, through the great Law of all life. This word being the spontaneous recognition of Living Spirit – Infinite, Ever–Present, and Active – is now made manifest in and through this person, or thing, about which the practitioner is thinking.

Two spirit there can be no incurable disease. The word “incurable” means not susceptible of being cured. The root definition of cured is “cared for.” If we say that a disease is incurable, we are saying that is not sensitive to care. As long as any cell is alive it is sensitive to care, which means that as long as a person is alive, the cells of the body respond to care. Naturally, they are not being cured if they are not being properly cared for. We have already learned that disease is largely a state of mind, and we could hardly say that a state of mind is incurable, could we? We know that thought is constantly changing, forever taking on new ways of expression. It cannot possibly remain permanent. It has to change. Can we not, accordingly, change it to a better state instead of to a worse?

Materia medica is using the term “incurable” less and less frequently, for most disease in the field of medicine is being cured. Let us then free ourselves from the assumption that any disturb state of thought need be permanent (“incurable”).

Seeing Perfection - Ernest Holmes - Science of Mind

A Primer for Living a Life

Seeing Perfection

Back of what we call the human body, there must be a divine body. Is not necessary to visualize the spiritual body, but we should sense body as a spiritual idea, that the flow and circulation of life through it is complete. Is not inhibited… not congested.

It is necessary that the practitioner believe in a perfect body. He cannot realize this unless he has already become convinced that the perfect body is there. If he has come to this conclusion, he must not deny it. There’s a perfect heart and a perfect idea of heart, perfect head in a perfect idea of had, perfect lungs and a perfect idea of lungs. The practitioner must realize that back of the appearance is the Reality, and it is his business to uncover this Reality. He does this through a process of obliterating false thought. He must deny false conclusions, bring out the evidence of perfection, and produce the healing. Disease is a fact but not a truth; it is an experience but not a spiritual reality.

We must transcend the appearance, even though we admitted as a fact. We are not so cold-blooded as to say to a person with pain that there is no such thing as pain. This is not our idea or purpose. We admit the fact. IT IS QUITE A DIFFERENT THING TO ADMIT IT’S NECESSITY. We admit that there is unhappiness, but it would be unthinkable to admit that no one has to be unhappy. Can it be true that there could be a Universal necessity for and happiness? IT CANNOT. And the time will come when no one will be unhappy! I do not know when it will come. I am not going to wait for it to come, but it is certain that such a time will arrive; and it will come to you and to me NOW in such degree as we will let it come. We shall be able to let it come in such a degree as we are able to convince our consciousness that it is there. And when he finally does come, we shall find that it was always there!

Disease, accordingly, is a fact but not a truth. It is not an eternal verity. It was a factor in human experience for ages that people did not broadcast over a radio, but it was not a truth that they could not. It was not a divine Reality, because had they known how to manufacture a radio and talk over it, they could have broadcast in any age. So we must try to see and sense that always, back of the appearance, PERFECTION IS.

Power of the Word - Ernest Holmes - Science of Mind

A Primer for Living a Life

The Power of the Word

Be specific in treating, the direct and definite in your mental work. You’re dealing with intelligence, so deal with It intelligently. The treatment must realize the patient as perfect, must recognize the Word as Power, must know that it breaks down every man-made law and casts it out, that it is the law of harmony and the recognition of the Presence of Good, that within itself it is unbounded, and equipped with the power to execute itself – and it must know that it does this. It must know that there is nothing that can change it, that there is no belief which can hinder it; that it cannot be reversed, misplaced, mislaid, neutralize or destroyed by any opposing force; that it does the thing is supposed to do. And it must know that it is continuous and unremitting and will operate until it does all it is supposed to do.

Jesus said: “heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” And Isaiah understood something of this when he said: “so shall my Word be that goeth forth out of my mouth; it shall not return unto me void.”

Seeing Perfection

when Jesus said to the man, “stretch forth thine hand,” he undoubtedly saw a perfect hand! If everything is mental, and if Jesus saw an imperfect hand instead of a perfect one, no good would have resulted, according to the law of cause and effect. A practitioner does not treat a sick man, he deals only with the idea, a spiritual man; otherwise, he would answer into the vibration of suffering and my himself experience the result of such vibration. From what we know, Jesus must have seen only the perfect hand. Even though he might have recognized the false condition, as far as his word of healing was concerned, and must have been a recognition of perfection… else he could not have been healed.

Healing is not creating a perfect idea or a perfect body; it is revealing an idea which is already perfect. Healing is not a process, it is a revelation, through the thought of the practitioner to the thought of the patient. There may be a process in healing, but not a process of healing. The process in healing is the mental work and the time it takes the practitioner to convince himself of the perfectness of his patient; and the length of time it takes the patient to realize this perfectness.

Treating Children

In the case of an infant – who is subjective to the conscious thought of the people around it – it may be necessary to teach the parents how to think about the child, else one might heal the infant and have the parents thought make it sick again. Explain to them the result of entertaining fears for the health of their children. Remember that the thought of the parents influences the child.

We will suppose the mother is constantly saying: “the poor thing; the poor, little sick thing.” From the human standpoint, this is natural, but it does not help the child, no matter how loving the thought may be. This is called unconscious, or innocent, malpractice. Is malpractice because it is the wrong use of thought; innocent because it is not intended to do harm; unconscious because the mother does not know the result of such mental action. In such a case, is the business of the practitioner to realize that there is no mental influence operating through the child except a belief in perfection.

At first, children are happy, free, spontaneous. This is why we like them, they live instinctively. As they grow older and their emotions become more complex, and they hear people talk about death, trouble, divorce, love and marriage and everything else, good, bad and indifferent, they begin to react to these emotions subjectively. Everything that opposes harmony and spontaneous unity, will prove disastrous to the child’s health, sooner or later. After certain age, children have to be reeducated, just as do adults, that there subjective mind may not reproduce false impressions.

The Medium of Healing

the thing to remember is, that THERE IS JUST ONE SUBJECTIVE MIND IN THE UNIVERSE. This is a point that people often do not realize, and because they do not, they cannot see how a person may be treated without touching him, or that a person At a distance can be helped through absent treatment.

If there is but One Subjective Mind in the Universe (and we have already learned the meaning and nature of Subjective Mind: It is deductive, receptive, plastic, neutral, impersonal and creative, It is the Stuff from which all things are made) you can impress upon it a certain image of thought, or a certain process of realization, and you will get a result, for It is the Actor.

When we speak of every thought dropped into the Creative Medium, do we think of God’s thought and man’s thought as the same? We think of each as thought; but, whereas man thinks both inductively and deductively, God thinks only deductively.

God is not conscious of matter as we know it. God is conscious of form, but not of size. God is conscious of manifestation but not of space. God is conscious of outline but not of limitation. God is conscious in many forms, but not as division.

There is a great difference between conscious and unconscious thought for train thought is far more powerful than untrained. If this were not true, the thoughts of the metaphysical practitioner could not neutralize those which caused his to be sick. Even a small amount of right thought puts to route that which is wrong.

We have learned that subjective mind can reduce only that it cannot of itself initiate anything; but this does not mean that it is unintelligent. We must be very careful not to labor under the delusion that because subjective mind cannot reason, it is unintelligent, for it is infinitely more intelligent than our present state of conscious mind, but is, nevertheless, controlled by it.

If our subjective consciousness were always clear, if it never received false impressions, the spirit would always flow to the point of objectivity, and we would never make mistakes, would never be sick, poor or unhappy.

Universe being deductive only, cannot refuse man anything. The very force which makes us sick can heal us, the force which makes us poor can enrich us, and the power which makes us miserable can make us happy. If this were not true, there would be a duality in the universe and that is impossible.

You do not need to look for a law of health as opposed to a law of disease, for there is only one Law. This gives a great sense of relief since it means that THERE IS NO POWER TO OPPOSE A TREATMENT. We are bound by our very freedom, our free will binds us, but is free will creates the conditions which externally limit us, so it can on create and dissolve them. Instead of saying, “Here is a sick man to heal, and I shall have to work hard on this case,” we should realize that there is nothing but Spirit in the universe and therefore, say, “I am going to conceive of this man as being Spirit, and the same power which made him sick will heal him.”

No Sensation in Treatments

is sometimes thought that in giving or receiving a treatment, one must experience some physical sensation. A patient sometimes says, after receiving a treatment: “I felt nothing unusual during the treatment.” It is not necessary that the patient should feel anything unusual. There is no peculiar sensation which accompanies a treatment, neither is it necessary that the practitioner should feel anything, other than the truth of the words that he speaks.

When we plan a seed in the ground we do not have a great sensation, it is not probable that the soil has any; but the seed planted in the creative soil will, nevertheless, produce a plant. “What is true on one plane is true on all.” Knowing what you are doing just as definitely as the gardener does. It is the person who knows what he is doing gets results.

Sometimes people who are being treated, as well as the practitioner, feel a great sense of peace, or elation, a vibration of light. Such a treatment – if it could be seen – might appear as light. People often do have a sense of light during a treatment; it is not at all necessary that you the practitioner or the patient should experience any sensation out of the ordinary during a treatment. Practitioner does not work himself up into an emotional state. While it is true that the treatment is creative, is also true that whatever feeling there is, must be in the fact and not a cause. It must be the result of a conviction.

Healing Is Clear Thinking Part 2

Right thought, constantly poured into consciousness, will eventually purify it. Discord might be likened to a bottle of impure water; healing might be likened to the process of dropping pure water into the bottle, a drop at a time, until the whole is clean and pure. Someone might ask why the bottle could not be turned upside down and at one straight out all the impurities. Sometimes this happens but not often. Meanwhile, a drop at a time will finally eliminate the impurities and produce a healing.      

In treating, go beyond the disease and supply a spiritual consciousness. A treatment is not complete without a great realization of Life and Love, of God in Perfection, of Truth and Wisdom, of Power in Reality. Since the Divine Presence in and through the patient at all times.

Whether we say that thought goes out, or that is operated upon by Principle, makes little difference. It is very evident that until a thought is created, there is no operation. It is evident that THINKING SETS CAUSATION IN MOTION. Whether the word used heals, or simply sets the law in motion, really is of small import.

The practitioner is in the same Mind in which his patient lives; consequently, since each is in the One Mind, the patient is sick in the same medium and in a certain sense in the same Mind in which the practitioner lives; and because this Mind Is Indivisible, the practitioner can, his own mentality, reached the thought which causes the patient to be sick. Whether we say he sends out a thought, or that he simply realizes a thought, makes no difference. The simplest way to say that the practitioner realizes, within himself, upon the one mind, through the one medium, in the One Law.

The practitioner realizes a certain truth for his patient within himself. Therefore, he sets the Law in motion for his patient. (The operation of this Law may be thought of in the same way we think of the Law whereby water reaches its own level by its own weight.) The practitioner knows within himself, and this self knowingness rises into the consciousness of his patient. Is like planting a seed in the ground, the practitioner sows the seed in the Creative Mind produces the plant. Does the soil operate on the seed, or does the seed operate on the soil? We do not know, but we do know that when a seed is put into the ground, the law pertaining to growth operates and a plant is produced, and that unless a seed is planted, no plant will be produced.

In practice, we make no attempt to send thoughts to our patients! We know there is but one mind. We will say that “capital a” represents one who is sick and desires help. “B” represents a practitioner. “B” thinks into mind; and whether we say that he is thinking within himself or somewhere else does not matter, he is always thinking into mind, because he is in mind! But one might say, “the patient thinks into his own subjective mind.” Yes, if you wish to designate it as his subjective mind, but his subjective mind is only his atmosphere in the One Mind. We must understand this very clearly, else someday there will be a wall between our thought and its ability to heal some person who happens to be at a physical distance.

Both the patient and the practitioner thinking to one common mind. Therefore, when a patient comes to a practitioner for healing, the practitioner does not try to hypnotize him, nor suggest anything to him. He declares the Truth about the patient. To the degree that the practitioner brings his own consciousness to a true recognition of perfection – provided there is a subjective receptivity in the thought of the patient – that man will be helped.

The practitioner does not try to hold a thought nor to send out a thought. He simply tries to convince himself of the perfection of his patient. The practitioner does not try to make his Word operates through his patient, but only attempts to know the Truth of what he states. The patient must be receptive to the Truth, then the Truth will heal him. The practitioner is dealing with Universal Law, backed by omnipotent Power, which is Divine Principle. This is what Jesus meant when he said: “you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

Every time we think, we are thinking into a receptive plastic Substance, which receives the impressive our thought. We stopped to realize how subtle thoughts are, how unconsciously we think negation, how easy it is to get “down and out” mentally, we shall see that each is perpetuating his own condition. This is why people go from bad to worse or from success to a greater success.

Only as we gradually, definitely, and intelligently take true ideas and build them into the structure of our own thought, can there, the desired reaction. In mental treatment, the practitioner’s deal solely with ideas, and treats neither bodies nor conditions. He never manipulates, nor should he lay hands on his patient… He does not care where the patient is when he is treating him, or what he may be doing. The practitioner’s work begins and ends within his own consciousness. This should be constantly borne in mind.

Healing Is Clear Thinking

Scientific mental healing is the result of clear thinking and logical reasoning, which presents itself to consciousness and is acted upon by Mind. It is a systematic process of reasoning, which honors the mental cause or idea underlying disease, and presents the Truth about man’s being.

For instance, say to yourself: “God is all there is. There is only one life.” When you are treating, if there is any slight point which is not clear, do not continue with the treatment. Stop at once, go back to your analysis of Ultimate Reality, and build your whole argument upon It, in order to get a clear consciousness.

Repeat: “God is all. There is but one power, intelligence and consciousness in the universe, but One Presence. This One Presence cannot change. There is nothing for it to change into but Itself. It is Changeless, and it is my life now, it is in me now.” Claim that no form of race-suggestion, belief in limitation, subjective idea of limitation, thought of karma, fatalism, theology or hell, horoscope, or any other false belief, has power. Except none of them. If you have ever believed in them, if you have ever believed that the stars govern you, or that your environment governs you, or that your opportunities govern you, recognize this as a hypnotic condition into which you have fallen, and deny every one of them until there is no longer anything in you that believes in them.

This is a good way to clear your consciousness. We can readily see what it does: it induces a clear concept of Reality, which must produce Itself. This process of clear thinking, if carried out every day, will heal.

When you are giving a treatment, you are thinking. You are meeting, opposing, neutralizing, erasing and obliterating suppression, fear, doubt, failure, morbid emotion and sense of loss – whatever the trouble may be. Every time your thought hits fairly and squarely, it erases just as definitely as one would race a chalk line. Such is the mystery of the appearance and that disappearance of thought.

Right thought, constantly poured into consciousness, will eventually purify it. Discord might be likened to a bottle of impure water; healing might be likened to the process of dropping pure water into the bottle, a drop at a time, until the whole is clean and pure. Someone might ask why the bottle could not be turned upside down and at one straight out all the impurities. Sometimes this happens but not often. Meanwhile, a drop at a time will finally eliminate the impurities and produce a healing.
