Three years ago, out of love for my family, I decided to heal. I did not care about the body at the time, and mistakenly thought I would have been “better off without it”. I was riddled with fibromyalgia pain and bipolar depression. The voice inside that made me sick was the last of the voice for ego that promoted the idea of my death.
My family loves me, and they depend on my body to function as their wife, mother and grandmother. Out of love for them, I made the decision to accept the Atonement for myself.
In ACIM the Holy Spirit essentially says, “if you knew it was only your thoughts making you sick, you would change your thoughts, get up and walk away”
I knew this, even in the depths of my despair, and so when I decided to actually listen to the Holy Spirit, I had no problem healing myself. By the Grace of God, I changed my thoughts, got up, and walked away from my sickness.
