There's a technique you can try, to help with removing sickness. I call it cancelling. Sometimes Holy Spirit advises me to do this. Basically, you attempt to focus on the NON-EXISTENCE of the symptom or problem. To recognize it as nothing. Or more importantly, that it is already gone. You affirm in various ways that it is not there. That. . .
When ACIM talks about the secret of salvation, it goes on to talk about how there is a singular lesson the Holy Spirit teaches, transcendent of all forms of suffering: "The Holy Spirit will repeat this ONE inclusive lesson of deliverance, until it has been learned, REGARDLESS of the form of suffering that brings you pain. Whatever hurt you bring. . .
As you work to forgive yourself and recognize your own innocence, you become more loving. But you're going to find that this cannot happen in isolation. As you increase your light, and no longer believe sinfulness or guilt within yourself, you're going to encounter the fact that other people still regard themselves as sinful and guilty. This puts you in. . .
"It is the privilege of the forgiven to forgive. " To me this has always meant that once you have accepted forgiveness for yourself, you now have the POWER to CAUSE others to be forgiven also, healing them and setting them free. That you can REMOVE THEIR GUILT. It is not enough to just believe that "you have forgiven them", in. . .
There are a lot of ACIM students believing that they are working miracles. There's often talk of shifting perception, changing beliefs and so on. But when you look deeply at what ACIM says, not only does it rarely mention shifts in perception etc it tells you that you aren't even the one who performs miracles. "The holy spirit is the. . .
"A miracle is a reversal of the physical order because it brings more love to the giver AND the receiver. (A miracle is misunderstood when it is regarded as a spectacle. )" "The use of miracles as a spectacle to INDUCE belief is wrong. They are really used for and by believers. " A CAREFUL reading of these principles tells you something. . .
"What He enables you to do is clearly NOT of this world, for ***miracles violate every law of reality***, as this world judges it. Every law of time and space, of magnitude and mass, of prediction and control, is transcended, for what the Holy Spirit enables you to do is clearly beyond ALL of them. " "What the Holy Spirit enables. . .
When you are confused by believing the ego's world, you assign to illusions all the properties of reality. You take the properties of God away from God and from your real self, and give them to the non-existent world. This is how you give your power away and empower sickness. You assign the permanence of heaven to make sickness seem permanent. . . .
While the world and its hierarchy of illusions would tell you that some sicknesses are far more severe than others, ultimately there is no world and there is no difference between them. When the world suggests for example that a stroke, brain damage, severe paralysis, is irreversible, serious, extremely bad, wrong, progressive, unhealable and proof of threat and danger, you are. . .
Your mind has the ability to be either constructive (creative) or destructive. Using the mind for destructive purposes is what the entire ego thought system is about. The whole world was made in an attempt to destroy God and Heaven. The mind, in its healing and accepting of atonement, has to be restored to being PURELY CONSTRUCTIVE. That means that. . .
"The denial of God is the ego's religion. " At the soul level, everyone is immortal and holy. There is no problem, no unhappiness, no sickness, no death. At the mind level, which is part of the soul, and perhaps only part of the mind at that, there is denial present. This denial is the rejection of reality, God, truth, sanity,. . .
All sickness is just a form of GUILT. And removing this guilt makes sickness IMPOSSIBLE. Guilt induces sickness because it demands punishment. It is an agreement to suffer. It is the result of NOT forgiving sin, thus believing sin is real. And once sin is real, you must become guilty and attacked, self destructive, suicidal, ready to suffer and die. . . .
What is true is true. God's truth and reality are the only truth and reality. God's truth is permanent and cannot be changed or damaged. This means that you can either accept tit, or you can PRETEND it is not true, but you cannot change it into something truly false. This means you can accept or deny it, and you. . .
All physical forms, all appearances, all physical conditions, all sicknesses, every illness, all disease, even physical death, . . . . . are all al lie. A MASSIVE lie. To be a miracle worker requires that you stop believing in sickness. In yourself, in others, in the world. Physical sickness is TEMPTATION. If we for a second believe it is real or true, we. . .
THIS IS HUUUUUGELY IMPORTANT!!!! "To the Holy Spirit, it is the fundamental law of sharing, by which you give what you value in order to keep it in your OWN minds. " "To have all, give all to all. " "Atonement as a Lesson in Sharing. Atonement is for all, because it is the way to UNDO the belief that ANYTHING is. . .
You may notice that when we apply forgiveness, a big part of this is taking the projected blame off of other people. Recognizing that it's really you that you're blaming and then undoing that condemnation. This all seems to imply your brother is innocent and had nothing to do with your upset etc. And so we return within to our. . .
This will fly against everything the ego believes, because the ego says that people are supposed to suffer. That guilt is justified. That punishment is needed. That somehow you are breaking the law if you help someone. Surely it's not possible to actually heal another person? To affect their mind? To undo their level confusion? To reverse their mental illness?. . .
There is light, and then there is the absence of light. The absence of light is what we call darkness. But darkness isn't a "something". It a lack of a something. When light shines and hits an obstacle, it forms a shadow. But the shadow isn't the PRESENCE of darkness, it's the ABSENCE of light. There is a cause effect. . .
