Spiritual healing is about experiencing the power and presence of God.
Healing can sometimes start to feel like a process. When we face a problem, we may commit ourselves to a regimen of study and prayer that is designed to help us find the spiritual truth that sets us free from the error that seems so real to us. This effort may continue for days, weeks, even months or years, until the full truth is realized that brings complete healing. If this happens, it can be helpful to remember what healing is all about in the first place. It’s not about the hours spent in study. It’s about thought opening wide to the presence of God and experiencing God’s presence.
Healing doesn’t take time to happen. Healing doesn’t require us to memorize many inspirational verses and repeat them in our mind. Healing is not an exercise of the human mind. Healing is an experience of the divine Mind.
Years ago, after studying, praying and listening for truth to be healed of some awful suffering I was enduring, I got to the point of saying, “God, I’ve prayed everything I can think of to pray.” And I heard a voice back saying to me, “Then trust what you’ve prayed and let it be.” It was an aha moment. I realized that I was trying to make the healing happen, whereas, I needed to accept that the truth I had been praying was already true. I didn’t have to make it happen. It was already happening. Just let it be. I saw.
I quit struggling. I released myself to God’s care. A huge sense of relief swept through my insides, and healing came rapidly. I let God take over, and the result was freedom.
Healing is not a process. It might feel like it takes a process to get there, but the ultimate healing will be a release from “the process,” and acceptance of God’s reality.
Healing is an experience. Always keep what might feel like a process secondary to seeking the experience of God’s presence here and now. The experience of God is what brings the healing home.
