I love this NASA photo. If you've never seen it before, it's called the "Helix Nebula" - or "The Eye of God. Every time I see it, I can't help but be reminded that God is in control. He sees the big picture. He knows all. He has a handle on everything. He wants us to be successful. He wants us to be happy. He wants us to heal. He knows us. He loves us.
While I don't intend this to be a religious environment, there are spiritual elements I can't ignore. I cannot have this website without publicly expressing gratitude to Him, who is my biggest supporter, the creator of this path I'm on, & the source of ALL healing & abundance.
Healing can mean being completely cured, having our burdens eased, or being given the understanding, courage, & strength needed to endure to the end. After years of scattered mental, emotional, & physical illness, and feeling hopeless, I finally laid my burdens at His feet. Today I'm still in awe of the healing, easing, understanding, & strengthening that He has given me, since the day I turned it over to Him.
Whenever I begin to lose faith, feel hopeless, or carry burden, I turn to Him for strength & continued healing, and I do my best to be grateful in all things, even when those 'things' are
really. really. hard.
I'm left speechless at the magnitude of His love, His influence, His vastness, His infinite power. I feel so tiny & insignificant in this never ending realm of existence, & yet I know that to Him... I am everything. To Him... you are everything.
I'm grateful to be an instrument in His hands, as I continue to help others in their healing journeys. I'm grateful for all of the many tangible tools for healing that He has made available to us including nutrition, holistic medicine, conventional medicine, energy work, prayer, faith, and all others.
Two questions I have been taught to ask myself in times of personal trial are these:
- Is there a potentially destructive pattern in your life?
- When discouraged do you feel overwhelmed - and in desperation seek for others to solve your problems, overlooking your own capacity to make much improvement?
(Richard G. Scott - "To Be Healed")
Whether your belief system is God, the Universe, Spirit, Intelligence, or another Higher Power, BELIEVE in your ability to heal & be abundant. The Source of Light & Love are endlessly liberating, empowering, & full of peace.
As I was writing this post today, I came across a poem written by my colleague & mentor, Marnie Pehrson. (Literally right in the middle of doing this post!) I think I was supposed to find it exactly when I did. She's given me permission to share it. I'm also including one of my favorite little 3 1/2 minute videos of all time at the end. "The Most Astounding Fact". I promise. It's worth it. More than 6 million others would say the same thing :)
Here's to you - and to me - in our journey - whatever journey that may be...
I keep going round in circles.
Will this challenge never end?
Why do my trials repeat themselves?
Not much more can I withstand!
Then I call upon the heavens.
God’s grace attends as I pray.
The lesson becomes crystal clear:
My thoughts do me betray.
I have expected to go in circles.
In my heart I did not believe
That anything could be different
And so my trials did I relive.
Now I will envision better paths
For my successful life to take.
In time I will expect the best and
A better life my thoughts will make.
For as a man thinketh
In his heart of hearts is he.
God grants according to desires.
What we expect will certainly be.
