I asked the question, “What is sickness?” and here was the answer I received from the divine powers: As long as you believe the crumbling of the body proves the body is real, you will cling to your belief in sickness. You may consume pills and potions to heal your illnesses, but, know this, the character within the dream cannot heal himself, only the dreamer can do that. Healing is the release of what is false and unloving. The release allows you to become fully aware of the love that has always been there, but has been blocked from recognition by your fears.
Do not judge yourself harshly when you are sick. It is an experience. No different than any other experience. And, like all experiences, it offers a lesson. Sometimes the lesson is not learned until moments before death or soon afterward, and, for this reason, bystanders may not be aware of a person’s transformation. Even if the lesson is not learned in this lifetime, the experience will serve to further his or her lessons in the next lifetime. Keep in mind that I am using the term “lifetime” because it is a term that you understand. You are never really born nor die. Your mind simply chooses a part of this dream to live within as if it were real. What is deemed mortal cannot be of heaven, and so sickness appears to “prove” that separation from the Creator is possible, but this is false. Dreams are never real, and mortality is an illusion.
You do not need to overcome sickness. You need to recognize that it means nothing. Let go of its value and recognize that you are not a body, but rather the perfect child of the Creator. As long as your sickness holds value for you, it will remain in your mind as if it were true. If you believe it is something to be conquered, you are attempting to make it real, which again, proves to you this life is real.
What is the role of a healer in helping the sick? You are helping people to recognize their own perfection and facilitate the release of their fears. You do this with the help of the divine teachers, such as myself, who wisely guide the process.
