Spiritual intuition, patience, and an earnest sense of God’s provision for each of His children ...

I found this beautiful example on my favorite 'healing' website

"A couple from out of state made a full-price offer on a house we had built, but with pages and pages of conditions. We accepted these conditions, but not happily. As we neared the closing date, they had problems with their mortgage lender and became even more difficult to work with. The deal seemed destined to fall apart. I was praying with Paul’s admonition to “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness” (Eph. 5:11). At first I thought it meant we were to have no fellowship with the other people, the buyers. But then a riveting angel message turned my thought around 180 degrees. I realized that the “unfruitful works of darkness” are all the mortal thoughts that seem to disturb and muddy the waters, such as distrust, criticism, annoyance, fault-finding, etc. These are unfruitful, nonproductive. So I made a vigorous effort to have no fellowship with these, and to prayerfully include everyone involved in the impartial and universal love of God. Immediately, I was led to make a personal visit to the buyers’ attorney, and the result was that all the difficulties were resolved in a fair and harmonious way, and we did conclude the transaction." Christine, Illinois, United States

I love this sentence: "I realized that the 'unfruitful works of darkness' are all the mortal thoughts that seem to disturb and muddy the waters, such as distrust, criticism, annoyance, fault-finding, etc. These are unfruitful, nonproductive."

Our enemies are our thoughts about our enemies: thoughts of fear, suspicion, bigotry, distrust, disgust, intolerance, worry. In fact, the minute we stop seeing our enemies as enemies, we heal the rift.

Our enemies can also be our thoughts about ourselves, including our fears of financial insecurity, accidents, disease, terrorism and all sorts of fears of losing what we have or not getting what we want.

God came alive for me after studying metaphysics when I was very young. Later, after working a 12-step program, God became a force that was powerful, tangible and real. I experienced so many absolutely undeniable "miracles" I could no longer pretend spiritual power was an accident. From there, I deepened my spiritual study.

Dualism is the root of all our troubles. Consider the possibility that there is no opposing force to God, or good.

Also, consider the possibility that we are not born to fear. Most people believe we are born sinners, born of fear and "sin," but I submit that this is the very reason they can't make progress. Most religious people, including Catholics and evangelicals, don't believe they can heal themselves or others, as Christ specifically taught and commanded us to do.

Believing that evil has any real power, or believing in a real devil -- keeps people stuck. This is also why they stay stuck in literal, primitive interpretations of the Bible. And this is why they have thrown away the lost art of healing, Christ's healing power, which he commanded us all to do.

'Fighting our enemies" only makes them larger. And by enemies, Christ wasn't just referring to territorial enemies, but to our own worries and fears. Worrying and being in fear are our biggest enemies. Lack of faith in God's healing power is our biggest enemy.

We are all equipped to heal physical, emotional, mental wounds -- but we are mired in archaic beliefs in "evil" being as powerful as God, good. How ridiculous. Why are we giving so much power to fear, evil or error? Christ healed by seeing man through God's eyes. I experience healings like this everyday, huge physical healings -- but I'm shy to talk about them because I am surrounded by so many nay-sayer with so little faith.

Why did the Catholic Church abandon Christ's healing miracles? Because they were too narrow minded to believe in the miracles and to believe the secret -- that there is no opposing force.

Fear is an illusion, a dream. So is the Adam story.

Genesis ONE, is the only account of creation that is real. Man is made in God's image.

Then man falls into a deep sleep (the illusion of sin, sickness and death.)

"The parent of all human discord was the Adam-dream, the deep sleep, in which originated the delusion that life and intelligence proceeded from and passed into matter."

We are spiritual, not material. There is no power in evil or in matter. The minute you realize this is a "thought" universe, the faster healings occur.

Anyway, you might try it before scoffing at it. I personally have experienced miracles that would seem supernatural -- simply by changing my consciousness, my thoughts, and viewing a catastrophe, broken bone or suicidal depression differently.

Lately I've been so full of gratitude, that colors and flowers, and good luck started popping up everywhere.

The only thing that shifted was my attitude. I started counting my blessings, and being grateful for every single thing. I started looking for how I could be of "love and service" to my family, my kids, my friends... instead of grumbling and being impatient, I took time and time started to expand. If you are really grateful, and fully in the present moment, then time actually seems to stand still. A beautiful Monarch butterfly came over and sat right next to me. Then God really started showing off...

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7

Also, consider this: "fear in the Bible" means "awe." To fear God means to be in awe of God, according to most bible scholars (not fundamentalists of course.)
