“The power that created me
is the same power that heals me.”
When you read this statement what do you think or feel? It can be a very positive and powerful reminder that we are not, and never can be, separate from the God-Presence that created us.
We are told in Genesis 1:26 ‘Then God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness'”. Most of us know this statement, yet believe God is outside of us and made us, rather like the potter makes a pot out of clay. In humanity’s early days of trying to make sense of God-awareness we explained God from the perspective of our human experiences.
However, today in Unity we believe it is more true to say that God extended the God-nature, which we experience in physical form. This is why we say we are spiritual beings having human experiences. We can choose to focus just on the form, or the spiritual essence that is our real nature, or the merging of the two into one. As Jesus Christ said, “The Father and I are one” John 10:30. Through this awareness, Jesus enabled others to heal.
So whenever we have a healing challenge or focus, remembering that the same power that created us is healing us, helps align our awareness with this powerful, creative life-force that is here with, within and as us always. As we allow ourselves to receive and align with God-Life and Love, we can know that our healing is happening now.
