In order that the fragmenting aspect of the mind that believes in separateness, called the ego, can be healed, we must have the ability– the availability– to heal. The Holy Spirit’s role in the world works through this innate ability that we all have.
A Course in Miracles states, “Remember that you choose the guide for helping, and the wrong choice will not help.”
As the Light of the Holy Spirit is your healing power, He uses the body constantly for communication purposes, and we must understand the body’s connection with self-healing. No one has healing power of his own, and anyone who considers himself “a healer” doesn’t understand this– is an unhealed healer.
A Course in Miracles also says, “Every healer who searches fantasies for truth must be unhealed, because he does not know where to look for truth, and therefore does not have the answer to the problem of healing.”
Power of the Mind
This will never occur unless the body has already been confused with the mind. In other words, by having an unconfused mind, you’ll have no worries of harm, or of “anything,” for that matter. The mind wouldn’t even think about harm; therefore, all conflict too should not be a concern.
The Holy Spirit doesn’t recognize anything else where the ego is concerned, only healing of the split-mind. He has nothing to do with the ego’s confusion over mind and body.
Remember, because of humanity’s decision to fantasize of a separate mind from God, the ego and the Holy Spirit are within us, except one is real and the other is the illusion that dreams. Anything unreal can not be of God; therefore, why should you fear “anything”?
The power of the mind can communicate, but can it actually harm you? The body as ordered by the ego can harm itself, as well as other bodies.
The error occurs in the ego’s convincing us that it is self-sufficient when it comes to healing power.
The ego prefers to believe that healing comes and is a painful process from outside– that something or someone outside us heals us; that it occurs through magic. This is an insane belief by which we operate, and is why we have so many types of “magic” formulas and pills.
When you are healing from any type of illness or injury, think deeply here about what really happens to you. Isn’t the process of healing power strengthening you? Of course it is.
This belief is also responsible for our aspirations and dreams not being achieved.
He doesn’t understand God if he believes he has something that others lack.
Magic is always seen as something wonderful or fabulous in the healer. He believes he can offer something as a gift to someone who does not have it. He may believe that the gift was sent from God to him, and in turn, as a healer, he passes it along to you.
