The highest and best practice in healing and staying healthy is to practice the presence of God in your mind and body. Regardless of what inharmony you may experience in any part of your body, you are wise to know and affirm: There is only one Presence, one Power, and one Activity in my mind and body.
Because the mind plays a large part in illness, it does the same in creating health and wholeness. It may take some courage and a lifting of your faith to make the above declaration, but the Truth is, your body loves for you to speak words of Truth to it and it responds accordingly. You may not be aware of this spiritualized activity, but it is helping the healing process. This is much better than focusing on pain and discouragement.
To heal your body and to keep it healthy, speak the above Positive Prayer several times. It is also powerful to be still and meditate quietly on these words of Truth. – Lovingly, Rev. John
The your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up quickly. – Isaiah 58:8

If we desire to help a suffering world, we too will suffer. That which we think and vision, that toward which we give our attention today, manifests in our lives tomorrow. If we joyously give to the world of our realization of God, the world will be blessed and we ourselves will become more God-like. – Emma Smiley
Love is the grandest healing and drawing power on earth. It is the very reason for being. Love is the sole impulse for creation. The whole universe is based upon Love. – Ernest Holmes
