A Course In Miracles International Urges All Healers to Get A Copy of the "Miracle Healers Handbook"

Miracle Healers Handbook

The problem is a grievance; the solution is a miracle. And I invite the solution to come to me through my forgiveness of the grievance, and my welcome of the miracle that takes its place.

As the Miracles Healing Center in Wisconsin Dells, WI prepares for the grand celebration of International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace from September 14 through September 23, 2012, there has been a marked increase in the number of healing request calls and visits to the Center, prompting a reminder from Director, Reverend Peter Bonnes of the availability, for free download, of the publication, “Miracle Healers Handbook”.

In the words of Bonnes, “While every call to the Healing Center is answered with Love and Gratitude, and every guest welcomed with open arms, we must always serve as a reminder of the wholeness that is our natural inheritance as created by God, and the impossibility of sickness or separation. The key to our healing is always in our hands, and can and must be used in every single moment. We must recognize that there is no justification for pain or suffering in any form, and that it is our 'unforgiveness' or sense of separateness that holds the idea in place.”

“In this simple prayer from the Workbook of A Course In Miracles,” continued Bonnes, “Jesus urges, 'Let me realize today that the problem is always some form of grievance that I would cherish. Let me also understand that the solution is always a miracle with which I let the grievance be replaced. Today I would remember the simplicity of salvation by reinforcing the lesson that there is one problem and one solution. The problem is a grievance; the solution is a miracle. And I invite the solution to come to me through my forgiveness of the grievance, and my welcome of the miracle that takes its place.'”

Bonnes goes on to say, "In the Miracle Healers Handbook (an excerpt of the Manual for Teachers of A Course In Miracles), Jesus tells us, 'Healing must occur in exact proportion to which the valuelessness of sickness is recognized. One need but say, "There is no gain at all to me in this" and he is healed. But to say this, one first must recognize certain facts. First, it is obvious that decisions are of the mind, not of the body. If sickness is but a faulty problem-solving approach, it is a decision. And if it is a decision, it is the mind and not the body that makes it. The resistance to recognizing this is enormous, because the existence of the world as you perceive it depends on the body being the decision maker. Terms like "instincts," "reflexes" and the like represent attempts to endow the body with non-mental motivators. Actually, such terms merely state or describe the problem. They do not answer it.

"'The acceptance of sickness as a decision of the mind, for a purpose for which it would use the body, is the basis of healing. And this is so for healing in all forms. A patient decides that this is so, and he recovers. If he decides against recovery, he will not be healed. Who is the physician? Only the mind of the patient himself. The outcome is what he decides that it is. Special agents seem to be ministering to him, yet they but give form to his own choice. He chooses them in order to bring tangible form to his desires. And it is this they do, and nothing else. They are not actually needed at all. The patient could merely rise up without their aid and say, "I have no use for this." There is no form of sickness that would not be cured at once.'"

“This is how we heal,” concluded Bonnes.
