Healing allergies

April 30, 2018 | 13 comments

A favorite hymn in the Christian Science hymnal begins,

“In atmosphere of Love divine,
We live, and move, and breathe” Hymn 144.

The mortal mind often argues that man lives in a physical environment filled with hazards and dangers to one’s health. But this is an error of belief that can be neutralized with spiritual truth. We can pray and prevent harm to our health from various plants and material substances around us.

Jesus Christ proved the power of divine Mind over physical environments and taught us how to exercise the same power. He said,

“These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name…if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed” Mark 16:17-18, NLT.

“Those who believe,” are they who believe in the omnipresence and omnipotence of God.

If one has any fear of allergies, it may be an opportunity to accept the allness of God more.

God is all good. God is all harmony and peace, the only cause and effect, causing all things to work together for good in all His creation. Each of us live in this harmonious atmosphere of divine Love, called God.

Perspective is everything though. We need to know we live in God’s universe, and not be unwittingly believing that we live apart from God in a kind of mortal mind danger zone.

Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “If you decide that climate or atmosphere is unhealthy, it will be so to you. Your decisions will master you, whichever direction they take” Science and Health, p. 392. To stay healthy, decide that you live in the atmosphere of divine Love, and then stay there with your thought.

Matter is never a threat to Spirit. Spirit is immune to all material ills. In Truth, you are a spiritual being, living a spiritual life, reflecting a spiritual God. Matter is not a threat to you. Your spirituality is immunity to material threat.
Knowing that you live in the omnipresence of Love, and then bearing witness to Love’s presence all around you, neutralizes fear of allergies and negates them.

As the apostle Paul wrote, “In Him we live and move and have our being” Acts 17:28, NKJV.
We are not helpless mortals stranded in a miserable material location. We are spiritual immortals living in the kingdom of heaven.

Claim the truth about your real environment with God. Know that you live in God’s presence and have only the good effect of God to feel, experience and express.

Mary Baker Eddy also wrote, “Mind, God, sends forth the aroma of Spirit, the atmosphere of intelligence”
Science and Health, p. 191.
Breathe in the atmosphere of divine intelligence. Let the truth about God’s good universe inspire your thought to the heights of heaven.

There are no dangerous smells in the kingdom of heaven. Only harmony and peace to take in and enjoy.

  1. Imagine my delight when I woke up at 2:30 this morning, sneezing, once again, suffering from what appears to be allergies. Unable to sleep, I turned on the computer to scan the headlines and check out Spiritview and the Daily Lift. Lovely, Healing Allergies, now I know this was meant for me. Thank You Evan, you knew exactly what I needed!!

  2. Thank you so much for this healing message, Evan. I don’t suffer from allergies, but the paragraph beginning, “Matter is never a threat to Spirit” is just what I needed to know this morning.

  3. Thank you, Evan. Exactly what I needed. I’ve been working with “In atmosphere of Love divine we live and move and breathe,” and knowing that I live in God, Spirit. When the impulse comes to cough (especially in church) and I tense up with fear, I’ve been holding to the truth of God’s omnipresence and all-power, and His great love. When the fear leaves, the tension goes and I’m fine. I need to see the unreality of the whole picture, and I know I will. Love casts out fear. Thank you again.

  4. Good morning, and thank you Evan. As I read this entry, I replaced the word allergy with a different claim and it really hit home that all claims of mortal mind have no power. That fact had a calming effect. Ye shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free. Thank you Christ Jesus for demonstrating this and thank you Evan for following his lead.

  5. Special thanks for this post today Evan. I was healed of seasonal allergies decades ago and have wanted to share the healing with my husband now that he firmly wants to stop taking a medication for his allergies that he has used for more than 30 years. This post, Evan, reminds me that the healing for me came quickly as I thought deeply about the truth in the words of that favorite hymn and cherished what I was learning about God and myself.

    I’ve noticed recently how freely people share with others the material remedies they find and how readily they are accepted. And that observation has made me think about sharing what healed me – but I couldn’t think of what precisely I want to share until I read this post this morning. As my husband left for work, the beginning words of the hymn were what we parted with. I gave him those words as a blessing so naturally, with ease and confidence – like I was handing him his lunch that we both expect he will appreciate today.

  6. Thank YOU EVAN!!!! the timing of this couldn’t have been better for me…you got me thinking in a good direction when I need to.

    I LOVE this sentence….”Breathe in the atmosphere of divine intelligence.” and it reminds me of one of Martha Wilcox’s lectures called “The Age of Divine Intelligence” (not that Divine Intelligence hasn’t existed throughout every age! ) Well actually, is there ever any “AGE” or “SEASON” at all when as spiritual beings, we live in eternity, not time?
    The thought of breathing in Divine Intelligence is wonderful! When my kids were very little I used to tell them “When you open your mouth, God is ALREADY in there to tell you what to say, how to sing and breathe perfectly” which they thought was very funny but it got across the idea of God being everywhere to them.
    “Matter is never a threat to Spirit.” This is also a great statement, reminding us that God has no adversary, there is no dual power, God, Good exists, no matter what else seems to be; does not indulge in a (materialistic idea) of fighting good verses evil like some silly transformer movie…”Man is not material, he is spiritual” and man cannot be a threat to himself as a city divided against itself cannot stand..there is only ONE …no dualism.

  7. Oh, Evan, thanks such a lot for today`s so needed, so helpful and so healing SpiritView of yours.

    I am just back from my reading room service. Before I went to the RR I read this SpiritView. And I took with me in mind that line from Hymn 144, and in the RR I several times sat still and let this truth “in atmosphere of Love divine, we live and move, and breathe” have a healing effect in my surrounding there.

    Hi dear SV-commenter family, I`d like to give you a testimony which matches with today`s topic.
    Many decades ago I had a tremendous healing from a very nasty allergical matter on my fingers and hands, as I touched a special plant. I bandaged my hands, so that nobody in church saw it. But as I was working as nurses aide at that time for the visiting nurse service in Munich, where I lived at that time, I asked a practitioner for metaphysical help. She told me to read certain passages from SH. The healing occurred within about one week. I was glad and happy and it is permanent. But the thing is, I did not really work and pray at that time in order to understand why it was healed (the deeper metaphysical thoughts).

    Therefore I am extremely thankful for Evan`s today`s so clear spiritual explanations. A very helpful sentence today is: “If one has any fear of allergies, it may be an opportunity to accept the allness of God more fully.” I love the spiritual Truths, Evan declares, for instance: “Our spirituality is immunity to material threat.” and “We are spiritual immortals living in the kingdom of heaven.” Actually the whole SpiritView is extremely helpful!!

    A very helpful and loving Truth Mary Baker Eddy wrote in SH p. 191 “Mind, God, sends forth the aroma of Spirit (and Love) the atmosphere of intelligence.”

    Thank you very much dear Evan, for this healing and inspiring SpiritView and also specially for your last utmost comforting sentence!

    And thank you a l l for your loving and interesting comments!

  8. Wonderful! Thank you so much, Evan – for the explicitly appropriate quotes you included from the Bible and Science and Health, and for your explanation of the whole concept of “atmosphere.” Those others who commented, you have also expanded the idea in such a meaningful way, blessing all who read Spiritview.

  9. I have always had the view that since God created all, the fish of the sea., the beasts of the field, the grass, the flowers, the trees etc, as well as man in his image and likeness, and all the he created was good. Then how could one of God’s creations be allergic to any of the others?

    God gave man dominion over all the “lessor” of his creations.

  10. The healing of a life time of the belief of allergies came within the past few years. I was in bed, draining profusely. As I laid my head, resting, the passage from S&H 14: 12

    “Become conscious for a single moment that Life and intelligence are purely spiritual, neither in nor of matter,-and the body will then utter no complaints.” became clear and answered every need; until the physical condition was healed, once and for all.

    This may have been 3, 4 or 5 years ago as it is permanent.

    There have been more recent healing concerning my nose, but the seasonal repeat of allergies has gone. For the relief from being burdened by my body is pure joy.

  11. Sometimes when I go to my weekly yoga class my kind teacher always stresses how our breath controls all the various parts of our body. I try to breathe in the Christ consciousness . The Christ spirit is breathing in around and within me. It fills me with Lovely thoughts . It is like a warm blanket of love . I was bothered by all her thoughts about mortal ailments being helped and corrected. She is so full of love and cares so deeply about her students but now I feel more comfortable about taking part.
