“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” – Prov. 23:7
It is wonderful to know that you have the power to change your attitudes when things are not right in your life. What is going on in your body is the result of attitudes of mind, so this applies to your body, also. By changing your attitudes you change your circumstances and the condition of your body.
Thought is creative and formative. What you think definitely affects your life, your attitudes about life, and what you do in life.
You may know what your attitudes are by observing what your dominant thought pattern is. You may also know this by the condition of your body, and your life.
In order to experience a healthy body, healthy thinking is required. It pays to think life-giving thoughts and to accept that you were created by God to be healthy, whole and vitally alive.
The rule is: Healthy thoughts produce healthy attitudes and in turn, produce a healthy and happy body. – Lovingly, Rev. John
Claim Your Birthright
by Myrtle Fillmore
I was once an emaciated little woman, upon whom relatives and doctors had placed the stamp “T. B.” [tuberculosis]. And this was only one of the ailments – there were others considered beyond help, except possibly the changing of structures through an operation. There were family problems, too. We were a sickly lot, and came to the place where we were unable to provide for our children. In the midst of all this gloom, we kept looking for a way out, which we felt sure would be revealed. It was!
The light of God revealed to us – the thought came first – that life was of God, that we were inseparably one with the Source, and that we inherited from the divine and perfect Father. What that revelation did to me at first was not apparent to the senses. But it held my mind above negation, and I began to claim my birthright and to act as though I believed myself the child of God, filled with His life.
I gained. Others saw that there was something new in me. They asked me to share it. I did. Others were healed, and began to study. My husband continued his business, and at first took little interest in what I was doing. But after a time he became absorbed in the study of Truth, too.
We consecrated ourselves to the Lord, and kept doing daily that which we felt led to do. We began to prosper, a little at a time, and our health continued to improve. Life became sweeter and more interesting, and we began to see a new world.
In all these years, our interest has not lagged, and we have continued to enjoy the unfoldment of God’s plan in our lives. (This was the beginning of Unity) – From Myrtle Fillmore’s Healing Letters.
Healing Your Body
You will never be able to arrange your life satisfactorily until you become master of your subconscious, and this brings us to the power of thought. In this material world in which we are living nothing matters except thought. The whole universe is just one huge network of thoughts. Bodies, houses, trees, rocks, animals, stars and planets, all are but externalized thoughts.
The principle thing with which we shall concern ourselves is the healing of the body and affairs, so let us begin with the body. What, then, is the physical body? The answer to that will be the critical point in healing.
The answer is that the body is but an aggregation of thoughts, the outpicturing of your psyche. Nothing can appear in the body that is not first in the soul. A cut finger is but the outpicturing of the thought of a cut finger, a boil is but the outpicturing of the thought of a boil, and so on.
There is no difference, really, between the wound, and this thought of the wound. If error thought can be got out of the mind it must disappear from the body, and spiritual healing consists in getting the thought out of the mind. In spiritual healing you never do anything to the body, you treat the psyche. If you remove the trouble by physical means you do something to the body but leave the psyche untouched, this may be a cure but it is not a healing. Healing means making whole.
So the body is not a kind of garment or case on the soul; it is the outpicturing of the soul. Heal the soul and you heal the body. This is done through treatment, which is scientific prayer. When you know the Truth, you are free! – Emmet Fox – The Science of Living, In Class with Emmet Fox
Healthy Positive Prayer
I am the ever-renewing, ever-unfolding
expression of Infinite Life.
I think healthy thoughts and enjoy a healthy body.
No one can understand how forgiveness heals the sick body unless he studies mind and has some understanding of it laws. There is a universal thought substance in which thought builds whatever man wills. – Charles Fillmore
The self-conscious mind of humanity is negative as a result of dimness of vision. To see positively we must have spiritual illumination. – Richard Lynch
In our modern world most people are so actively engaged in getting health, or whatever it is they are pursuing, they fail to pause long enough to receive the quickening, healing power. – Richard Lynch
