A Course in Miracles is one of the most important books I have ever read. To say I read it is hardly the case, I have spent years studying its profound words and deep wisdom. It transformed my life and explained mysteries of faith and spiritual truth in ways that I could readily understand. The resonance of its words blended with all the teachings I had long studied in ancient Indian texts, yet it is a Christian (Christ-based) text. I recommend it to everyone who asks how they may move forward on the spiritual path and love themselves more.
These are some quotes from A Course in Miracles:
God is but love and therefore, so am I.
Love, which created me, is what I am.
Love is the way I walk in gratitude.
Love is the essence, yet the course speaks about the intrusion of the ego and how it can pull us away from love. So the heart massage, which you have been encouraged to practice this week and whenever you need it, serves to dissolve the activities of the ego by stating clearly that we “love and accept” ourselves no matter what the ego throws our way. Do you realize how powerful this is and how your life could be changed because of it?
I hope that you have tried the heart massage and experienced its cleansing and clearing effect. You can use it in the moment, when something happens during your day. You can also use it retroactively. Here’s how:
In the past, even long ago, something happened that shook your core of love. It may have indelibly altered the course of your life. If it still unsettles you, it is not too late to dissolve the ego intervention and move into love.
- When you have the situation firmly in your mind, begins using the heart massage. Delve into ALL the feelings, emotions and fears your felt then, repeating each time that you “love and accept yourself” no matter what happened. Try to exhaust every single negativity surrounding the situation.
- When you have finished, see if you feel better. You might even give yourself a measurement — on a scale of 1-10 — on how much you felt unsettled, then re-evaluate after wards. Your assessment of the number should have decreased. When I work with others on this practice, we actually muscle test to do this measurement.
If you decide to try to clear past issues in this way, I recommend that you restrict this kind of clearing to only one or two at a time. You may be surprised at how altered you will feel in this practice.
In future lessons we will move more deeply into this subject. If you have questions about it, I am eager to help. You can also refer to one of Henry Grayson’s books which clearly describes the method and how it works or go to his website – www.henrygrayson.com.
In this lesson we have actively used our body to participate in healing and bringing love to the foreground. I always feel better after this kind of work. I hope that you do too.
With love and namaste, Deanne
