Healing Aids and Practices

Mind Power

The Secret is a DVD about the law of attraction. We create our reality with our thoughts and actions. The outstanding message of this DVD is that our thoughts have much greater creative power than most people realize. If you strongly believe that you are going to get sick or experience pain from electromagnetic fields, then you will get sick or experience pain from electromagnetic fields. Conversely, establishing a strong thought habit of faith and protection is a very powerful method of strengthening the body against electromagnetic fields. Paramahansa Yogananda says:

If you cling to a certain thought with dynamic will power, it finally assumes a tangible outward form.

Just one thought may redeem you. You don’t realize how effectively your thoughts work in the ether.

Nearly everyone is familiar with those three little monkey-figures that depict the maxim, “See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.” I emphasize the positive approach: “See that which is good, hear that which is good, speak that which is good.”

Change your thoughts if you wish to change your circumstances. Since you alone are responsible for your thoughts, only you can change them. You will want to change them when you realize that each thought creates according to its own nature.

What we choose to focus on becomes our reality. The music we listen to, the television shows and movies we watch, and the books we read, all have a profound affect on our consciousness, so I suggest that you choose carefully what you focus on. I do not listen to, watch or read the news. I only watch movies about inspiring people or that have a positive message. I avoid vulgarity, profanity and dark energy because it makes me sick. I know a mentally ill person who must sleep at night with the lights on because he has seen too many horror movies; I believe he is mentally ill because he has seen too many horror movies.

I strongly believe that when we focus on something, we create more of what we focus on. For example, when we watch a movie or read a book or listen to the radio, we actually create more of the consciousness or energy of the type we are focusing on, because thought is creative; we create more of the thoughts that we are attentive to. We are profoundly affected by sources of information that we focus on, and we also affect others because our thoughts don’t stay with us, they travel in the ether after they are created and join together with thoughts of the same kind to create a larger thought form. Paramahansa Yogananda says that natural disasters are created by man’s misuse of free will in thought and action: see article, Inner Security in an Uncertain World.

When I look at my own life, the power of my thoughts to create my reality is obvious. However, the thoughts I have often been choosing are fear-based, and as a result the life that I have created for myself has been very difficult. I have been afraid of losing my job and living on the street. I have experienced so much fear in my life that it burnt out my nervous system and this led me to developing hypersensitivity to electromagnetic fields. Because of this illness I came very close to dying or living on the street. Fearful thoughts attract the object of fear if they are strong enough.

We humans have a tremendous amount of creative power and we need to learn how to create beautiful things. When we consciously start using the law of attraction, we can create miracles. Consciously using the law of attraction is much easier when the mind has been purified and strengthened.

I once read an inspiring story about a young woman who discovered she had terminal cancer. Instead of bemoaning her fate, she decided to celebrate life, and give love to everything and everyone. She was a real inspiration to all of the people around her. Well, guess what? She is now free from cancer. Love is the greatest healer of all. I believe that love is the most powerful force in the universe!

The Feel Better Program is a FREE offering to help you realize your dreams. This is excellent, straightforward instruction on how the law of attraction works. “Your ability to feel good consistently is the most important part of the law of attraction.” Please watch the introductory video, “Simple Steps to Realizing Your Dreams.”

Affirmations

Mind power can of course be used for healing. I have personally used Paramahansa Yogananda’s Scientific Healing Affirmations with great success. I was able to keep going for years while getting extremely ill from electromagnetic fields partly because I spent two to three hours per day on the bus practicing affirmations with deep concentration. I often felt noticeably better at the end of a bus ride. Paramahansa Yogananda says:

The subconscious idea-habit of disease or health exerts a strong influence. Stubborn mental or physical diseases always have a deep root in the subconsciousness. Illness may be cured by pulling out its hidden roots. That is why all affirmations of the conscious mind should be impressive enough to permeate the subconsciousness, which in turn automatically influences the conscious mind. Strong conscious affirmations thus react on the mind and body through the medium of the subconsciousness. Still stronger affirmations reach not only the subconscious but also the superconscious mind—the magic storehouse of miraculous powers.—Scientific Healing Affirmations

Keep applying will and positive affirmation until you make thought work for you. Thought is the matrix of creation; thought created everything. If you hold on to that truth with indomitable will, you can materialize any thought. There is nothing that can gainsay it.—In the Sanctuary of the Soul: A Guide to Effective Prayer

A few of my favorite affirmations from Yogananda are:

I am submerged in eternal light. It permeates every particle of my being. I am living in that light. The Divine Spirit fills me within and without.

Father, Thou art in me; I am well.

Heavenly Father, Thou art present in every atom, every cell, every corpuscle, every particle of nerve, brain and tissue. I am well, for Thou art in all my body parts.

God’s perfect health permeates the dark nooks of my bodily sickness. In all my cells His healing light is shining.

I relax and cast aside all mental burdens, allowing God to express through me His perfect love, peace, and wisdom.

I will go forth in perfect faith in the power of Omnipresent Good to bring me what I need at the time I need it.

O Father, Mother, Friend, Beloved God! I will reason, I will will, I will act; but lead Thou my reason, will, and activity to the right things that I should do.

The first of these affirmations is my favorite! I have practiced it for many hours.

Dr. Rhea Zimmerman’s Breathe Love CD is a very uplifting and easy way to benefit from the power of affirmations! See also Susan Shumsky’s book, Instant Healing, which contains a comprehensive list of affirmations and prayers.

Unity Church offers a free prayer service called Silent Unity: “After we have prayed with you, we then place your prayer request in the Silent Unity Prayer Vigil Chapel for 30 days of continuous prayer.” Unity Church practices affirmative prayer. Call 1-800-669-7729.

Prayer

As with affirmations, prayer can be life changing! I have spent hundreds or thousands of hours of my life praying, mainly for healing of myself but also for others. I think of prayer as asking God to do something for me, and I like this because I have more faith in God than in myself! I trust that God will use the prayer energy in the right way. The most powerful form of prayer I know is repetitive vocal prayer. I have prayed vocally for long hours in my apartment, and also I pray while I am out walking. I have gone on many long “prayer walks” for the purpose of purifying my mind. Because of the power of prayer and the grace of God, I have survived what would have otherwise killed me many years ago, and my health continues to improve.

A good example of a prayer I would use on a prayer walk is, “Beloved God, please purify and strengthen my body and mind. Please free me from all mental habits and trauma that are the cause of my environmental sensitivities.”

Although I recommend a multi-faceted approach to healing electrical sensitivity as there is often more than one cause, I believe that some forms of electrical sensitivity can be healed with affirmations or prayers alone, especially those that are rooted in bad mental habits, trauma and other mental impurities. Repetition of prayers and affirmations is important for effective results because a certain amount of time and energy was needed to create the bad mental habits or trauma, so the same amount of energy needs to be invested to heal those bad mental habits or trauma: bad habits must be replaced with good ones. Many people are not really aware of how profoundly the health of the mind affects the health of the body, nor are they aware of how badly polluted their minds are with bad mental habits and trauma. Healing electrical sensitivity that is caused by bad mental habits and trauma could take a long time, so patience and faith is required. A very strong fear habit was the primary cause of my electrical sensitivity, but I believe that anger and guilt can also be causes of electrical sensitivity. Paramahansa Yogananda says:

When chronic diseases and sufferings are beyond the control of human care; when the power of human methods fails to cure ills, physical or mental, revealing its limitations, then we must ask God to help—He who is unlimited in power.

The secret of effective prayer is to change your status from a beggar to a child of God; when you appeal to Him from that consciousness, your prayer will have both power and wisdom.

In chronic diseases, do your best to help promote healing, but know in your mind that ultimately God alone can help. Take that thought with you into meditation every night, and with all your determination, pray; suddenly one day you will find the disease gone.

The Law of Karma

“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”—The Beatles

My understanding of this quote from the Beatles is that it is referring to the law of karma. I have personal experience of the law of karma working in my life, without a doubt. Stated simply, there is a personal consequence to every thought, word, feeling and action. The law of attraction is simply another name for the law of karma. My experience is that we receive exactly what we give, if not in outward form, then in inward form (as a shift in mood for better or worse). This law can be applied to help self by healing others. I have personal experience of my physical health and mood improving dramatically by praying intensely for long periods for the health and happiness of others.

A similar approach for using the law of karma for healing is found in the book, Instant Healing, by Dr. Serge King. Dr. King has a specific remedy for Environmental Sensitivity:

The Admiration Effect—with your full conscious attention, admire or compliment, aloud or silently, someone or something in your life or in your immediate environment. Do this as frequently and abundantly as possible until you get relief. At the same time, greatly reduce or eliminate criticism of anyone or anything.

This can be restated more concisely as: “Bless everything and everyone around you, and everything you can think of, non-stop. When you need to take a break, return to the blessing when you can. Do this until you achieve results.” A related idea is found in the book, A Complaint Free World, by Will Bowen, who teaches the power of abstaining from complaining, criticizing and gossiping: “People have shared stories with Will of relieving chronic pain, healing relationships, improving careers, and becoming an overall happier person.” Expressing or holding anger causes illness. In fact, there is a correlation between anger and incidence of cancer.

There is an experience called a kundalini awakening that occurs when the karma is extremely good: this is the experience of very powerful spiritual energy ascending the spine that eventually results in expanded consciousness and great joy! The force of kundalini can be so strong that it results in levitation, as has been demonstrated by many saints. My personal belief is that the physical body must be very strong to handle a kundalini awakening, and that EMF pollution is of minor consideration for someone experiencing a kundalini awakening because the kundalini is much more powerful than any energy typically found in the environment, even in our EMF-saturated world. The easiest way to improve your karma is to meditate by watching the breath without interfering with it.

Serge King’s book, Instant Healing, provides many methods of healing that may interest you, as well as great insight into the power of the mind and body. These methods require faith, willpower, concentration and perseverance, but they work!
