How to Heal

When we have pain, emotional or physical, we need to heal.
When we have fear and avoidance, we need to heal.
When we have guilt and shame, we need to heal.
When we have upset, judgment and blame, we need to heal.

Fear calls for healing.
What we reveal, we can heal.
Awareness with love will heal.
Seeing what is without judgment is healing.

Healing is undoing the wounds held in our mind.
Healing is clearing the blocks to love.
Healing is filling our mind with light and our hearts with love.
Healing is trusting that all things work together for Good.

When we hold what we believe to be right, we are stuck in our righteousness.
When we need to make ourselves and others wrong and sinful, we cannot heal.
When we have fixed opinions and try to control others, we are stuck.
When we live and speak as though we know what is right and best for others, we are unwilling.

Willingness to heal is essential.
Open-mindedness to forgive is essential.
Releasing the past is required.
Undoing our limited and doubtful thinking is necessary.

When we cannot change our minds, we cannot change our lives.
Change and healing come from undoing old ways of thinking.
Change comes from letting go of our attachments and obsessions.
Healing comes from releasing thoughts that create hurt and fear.

What does changing our minds require?
Forgiveness and Affirmation are two most powerful mind cleansers I know.
Forgiveness, used correctly, trains the minds to undo everything that is not wholly true and loving.
Forgiveness is a choice we make to release the past and respect what is right here and right now.

Forgiveness is an eraser filled with Love.
Forgiveness is designed to undo the thoughts that hurt and scare us.
Forgiveness requires a happy willingness to let go and Allow Good into our lives. 
I forgive everyone and everything for all time, including myself.

This powerful affirmation and prayer for forgiveness is essential all the time.
Every thought we think is filled with programmed judgments, defenses and control.
When we believe we know all and can do all, we are mistaken.
When we affirm we do not know and turn our thoughts over to forgiveness and Love, we can heal.

Healing is revealing.
Letting go is fun, safe and easy.
Mistakes can easily and quickly be undone when we are willing to forgive.
Life is a choice to get stuck in a hurtful and fearful dream or awaken to a healing and loving reality.

We can forgive, undo, release and erase what appears to be and see the power of healing love within.
We can change our minds and our lives.
We can live with thoughts, words and deeds of love and trust.
We can choose again for the beauty and goodness we want to see and be.

Blessings abound when we choose for healing love,
Betty Lue
There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
No disease that enough love will not heal;
No door that enough love will not open;
No gulf that enough love will not bridge;
No wall that enough love will not throw down;
No sin that enough love will not redeem.

 It makes no difference 
  how deeply seated may be the trouble,
How hopeless the outlook,
How muddled the tangle,
How great the mistake. 
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.

 If only you could love enough, you would be the happiest 
and most powerful being in the world.
