Have You Called Several Practitioners Without Results?

listen

The first time I called a practitioner was for employment – or so I thought. Within a few days, job offers poured in. I called the practitioner again and said, “Please stop. I decided I’m not ready to work.”

The second time I called a practitioner, I was in a financial crisis. In a few days, the supply came in. Then, there was the time when I just left the Emergency Room. The doctor said unless I had an operation tomorrow, things would go badly for me. I called the practitioner and was healed within hours.

Reader, to tell you the truth, a Pink-rumped Rosefinch could pray for me, and the results would be similar. It seems that I’ve always responded to prayer. But, this post is not about me. This post is for those of you who seem to get no help from a practitioner.

Marie Watts (of The Ultimate) told me many times that she never received help from a practitioner. During her time in Christian Science, she was acquainted with some of the best practitioners in the movement. Yet, they were not able to help her.

Then, she said these words, “Allen, when a person has tried many practitioners without receiving help, it’s because they are able to do the work themselves.” I believe this. I sincerely believe that if you have tried one practitioner after another without getting help, you can successfully help yourself. Don’t be afraid! You can do it.

Below are two approaches for “doing your own work.”

LAY IT ON THE LINE

In this approach you lay out all the troubling appearances that seem to be real, and then you ask (God Consciousness) what is really going on?

For example, “It appears that my eyes are red and swollen. It seems as though my vision is blurry and out of focus. These are the appearances, but right where this trouble seems to be happening, what really is going on?” Then, you listen. If no answer comes forth immediately, repeat and listen. Don’t lose heart. Consciousness will reveal what is true.

SKIPPING APPEARANCES ALTOGETHER

If there appears to be trouble in your experience, it’s not what it appears to be. It looks troublesome, and it may even appear to be life-threatening, but it’s not. This troublesome thing is drawing your attention to some Truth of God.

In this approach, you simply ask in prayer, “What is the Truth that I most need to know now?” Or, for those who are rattled by the duality of such a question, you can ask, “What is the Truth that I am knowing right now?”

Reader, I’ve used both approaches. When something seems so horrific that it knocks me off balance, I opt for the first approach. Either way, your focus is not on healing but knowing what IS. I repeat the words of Marie Watts, “Allen, when a person has tried many practitioners without receiving help, it’s because they are able to do the work themselves.”

You can do your own work!

Pills, Reiki, God And Healing

blogpost

The Question

Question: “Allen, since God Is All, isn’t God medicine, surgery, Reiki, etc.?”

A Quick Contemplation

At least the questioner starts on a firm foundation: God Is All. Let’s go one step further. What God Is, is all that there is. God Is Perfection; therefore, Perfection Is All there is. Reader, just take a moment to contemplate the Allness of Perfection.

Don’t judge by appearances. Do just what the questioner did. Start your “reasoning” from the Allness of God – but stay there. Have you concluded that Perfection is equally present and everywhere present? Do you see that nothing else exists but Omnipresent Perfection?

What Do You Believe?

Pills, potions, surgery, Reiki and all the other healing modalities — aren’t they based on the premise that there are pockets of imperfection in God’s Allness? Aren’t they based on the assumption (and appearance) that Omnipresent Perfection has lapsed into imperfection? Reader, don’t merely read these questions, answer them. Then answer this question: Do you believe that Omnipresent Perfection (God) can become imperfect?

Spiritual Healing Is Different Because Of The Starting Point

The Book of Habakkuk (Holy Bible) states that God’s eyes are too pure to see evil. Paraphrase: God doesn’t know anything about disease and therefore doesn’t know anything about healing disease. Yet, you and I know that people have appeared to be healed by spiritual means only. I personally know of cases where people have been healed of:

  • blindness
  • cancer
  • AIDS
  • broken bones
  • hearing loss
  • hair loss
  • mental retardation
  • etc.

Yet these so-called healings weren’t like the healings (or patch jobs) that result from surgery, pill popping, Reiki and other healing modalities. Here’s the difference. Surgery, Reiki, and you name the pill start with the disease as a reality and then attempt to eliminate it. In cases of so-called incurable diseases, it’s often an uphill, losing battle.

In so-called “spiritual healing”, the person (or Practitioner) starts with God’s Allness as the reality and sickness as the lie. The person then sets her attention on getting a clearer awareness of God’s Allness. When God reveals Itself to be all there is of the Body, the Perfection that God Is shows forth as what many would call “a healing”.

Importantly, the person knows the so-called healing to be God’s Perfection revealed and evidenced.

Did You Fall For This Lie?

Misguided Advice From A Practitioner

For the theater musician, the tide of success seems to ebb and flow. When she’ll flow, no one knows. At least this is the appearance. My good friend Wesley is a theater musician, and at one time his career was treading water waiting for another high tide of success.

“Wesley,” I said, “why don’t you call a Practitioner to jump-start your career?” He did, and from there things went downhill, backwards on ice! I heard the frustration and confusion in his voice when he told me what the Practitioner said.

The Practitioner told Wesley that he should not be seeking more gigs, and more success. “After all,” said the practitioner. “God doesn’t know anything about pianos, theaters and money. You should instead be seeking to know God.”

Reader, are you scratching your head like I did? Did your mind immediately flash back to the healing miracles of Christ Jesus? Did you say to yourself, “Well Jesus never told the lepers they should be seeking to know God rather than seeking a healing?” And did you say to yourself, “Wait a just minute! Jesus never rebuked the miracle seekers for not seeking God instead?”

Does Money Really Exist?

Many Practitioners erroneously believe that pianos, theaters and money don’t exist, and that God knows nothing of them. Lies and vicious propaganda! Rather than criticize and condemn, let’s take the axe to the thick root of this delusion.

True, God doesn’t know anything about money, pianos and theaters as they are humanly named. Yet, these forms do exist. To the Infinite I Am, the name of these forms is the One Name – I AM.

In the experience of visual illumination, you do see pianos, theaters and dollars. However, you see them as forms of Light – much like you see the rainbow as a form of light. These forms exist, but not as matter.

You Are All

The Practitioner should have told Wesley the Truth. He should have told Wesley that the Infinite I Am is the I AM that he is. This Infinite I AM includes every form within Its infinity. Then the Practitioner should’ve reminded Wesley that there is no separation of time and space between him and any form. He then should have capped it off by saying, “Wesley, you have ALL, because you ARE ALL.”

Are you thinking, reader, “Well what about all that seeking first the kingdom of God business? Jesus did say that, you know?” He did, and there’s no getting around it.

Reader, suppose the story went like this. Instead of calling a Practitioner, Wesley prayed with the sincere desire to know more of God. These same truths would’ve revealed themselves in and as his Consciousness.

However, since Wesley called a Practitioner, it was the Practitioner’s responsibility to tell Wesley the Truth, the whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth.
