A Course in Miracles, in The Manual for Teachers, says this:

“The acceptance of sickness as a decision of the mind, for a purpose for which it would use the body, is the basis of healing….Who is the physician? Only the mind of the patient….What is the single requisite for this shift in perception?….the recognition that sickness is of the mind, and has nothing to do with the body.”

Those are pretty radical statements, don’t you think? But in them is the key to all healing, no matter the disease or disorder.

Finally, think about this statement from the Course:

“The patient could merely rise up without their aid (doctors, surgery, medication, etc.) and say, ‘I have no use for this.’ There is no form of sickness that would not be cured at once.” (Emphasis added.)


As Johnny said, those statements he and Berna chose from A Course in Miracles, are radical. But only to your human or ego mind.

In the realms of Spirit, those statements are simple truth.

Your Western world has made disease a major focus. And it has made healing far more complicated than it actually is.

In fact, nothing is simpler or easier than achieving a balanced, healthy physical body.

If your mind is the healer, the physician, then a simple choice to be healed will heal you of any disease. And it happens instantly. You ask and it is done.

But as spirit embodied physically, you live in the illusion of linear time. And so the healing can appear to take time.

But rest assured, the moment you ask, in that moment, you are permanently healed.
