Healing Power of BELIEF!

How is everything going with you? I hope that you had a fun and relaxing Labor Day weekend. Garfunkel and Oates were performing at Irving Place last Saturday, so a few friends and I went to see them.

If you've never heard of them, they are a hilarious female musical-comedy duo. We laughed so hard. Comedy provides so much healing potential, and nothing transmutes negative energy quite like laughter.

In this newsletter, I wanted to share a funny and empowering personal story about how a misunderstanding taught me about the healing power of BELIEF.

A few years ago, a friend of mine reached out to me to ask for guidance about some fear and anxiety she was experiencing. She reached out by text, and we all know how easy it is to misunderstand a text anyway! In an attempt to show empathy and let her know that she wasn't the only one going through it, I sent her a text back that read,"Fear abounds!"

I know, I know! That's pretty dramatic and not at all how I would have responded in face to face conversation, but she seemed to appreciate it and we texted our goodbyes shortly after. I thought she was texting me as a friend to commiserate, but it turns out that she was texting me for some MAGICAL HEALING POWER....

A week or so later, I called her to see how she was doing. She mentioned that whatever I did healed her and that she felt so much better. I asked her what she meant because I didn't recall doing anything special. She said, "You know the 'fear abounds' thing." I still didn't get it. She paused for a moment and asked, "Well, what does 'abounds' mean?" Then, I got it. LOL!

She thought I was using an INCANTATION to expel the fear from her mind. It worked incredibly well because of her belief that I would be able to exercise the fear demon. The fear was replaced with absolute certainty and trust-- all because she didn't know the definition of "ABOUNDS" and assumed it was a COMMAND.

My friend and I still talk about this and laugh, but we're also sograteful for the lesson. At the time, I was honored that she had so much faith in me, but it made something abundantly clear to both of us. It's not just me who has the magical ability to heal. It'sEVERYONE who BELIEVES. And BELIEF plays such an important role in any type of healing process because the BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT are aligned. So, believe in your BODY/MIND/SOUL's ability to heal itself. I BELIEVE IN YOU! :-)

Warmest Wishes,

Rachael
