Healing is accomplished by uncovering, neutralizing and erasing false images of thought, and letting the perfect idea reflect itself through subjective mind into the body.
- Dr. Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind p.197
In our current society it is easy to forget this concept, isn't it? We become lulled into a belief that what needs to be healed is the physical and forget that the physical begins at the Mental. For instance, when we "catch a cold," we have a tendency to look at the symptoms of the cold and think and act as though the symptoms are what need to be tended. The Truth is the experience of the cold is backed by a false idea in Mind that we have accepted as our own.
When I get that "tickle" I immediately begin the mental work required to neutralize and erase the false image. By bringing my Mind to a new belief I combat the old idea and set a new idea to work the Law of Cause and Effect. Since the Law knows only to do and act upon what we decide the ultimate effect of this new idea is a demonstration in form.
The basis of all healing is a change of belief. That's it! Once you change the belief that has caused that which requires healing, the effect must be healing. Everything that is required for the effect to occur perfectly shows up. So be open to it! You CAN heal your life!!
