While cleaning out old files I chanced upon a letter I sent many years ago to a third degree Wiccan high priestess regarding a health issue she had mentioned on her coven’s web page. ¹
As I reread it, it occurred to me that it might be of interest to those who are following my Reality Check series, because it touches directly on the power of thought.
With names and addresses omitted, here it is.
Respectful greetings, (name),
On (your website) you mention having hereditary grand mal seizures. Please consider the following line of reasoning which may prove helpful in eliminating this challenge from your life.
The primordial All-Mother / All-Father may be thought of as: life, love, intelligence, substance, omniscience, omnipotence, and omnipresence. No combination of these properties will produce disease. The primordial All-Mother / All-Father is our true heredity parentage. Therefore we cannot inherit disease.
The subconscious mind has a powerful “lifeward thrust”, which it makes manifest in our lives, subject to the limitations of mortal thought accepted as true by the conscious mind.
The subconscious mind never argues with the conscious mind, so whatever we believe to be true is what the subconscious mind makes manifest in our lives.
It is always fully aware of what we really believe.
It contains the perfect blueprint for our physical bodies, and can regenerate or recalibrate any parts or processes at any time, at any speed, in the teeth of any so-called insurmountable obstacles.
The subconscious mind can instantly heal, provided that such healing is not inhibited by the limitations of mortal thought regarding what is/is not possible, (such as false beliefs about the immutability of hereditary conditions).
There is no limit to what the subconscious mind can make manifest in our lives, although getting out of its way may take patience and persistence if a false belief has become deeply rooted.
In view of the foregoing, logically, our mental diet is one of the most important aspects of our lives.
The limitations of mortal thought cannot bind us without our consent.
Our freedom exactly matches that of our true heredity parentage, our primordial All-Mother / All-Father.
¹ At the time of writing, this was a private letter (to a complete stranger). I didn’t include footnotes, but now, having published it on a blog anyone can read, I feel compelled to do so.
However, I’m having difficulty remembering just what I was reading so many years ago. After much consideration the sketchy list below is, for now, the best I can do.
