“There is nothing outside you. This is what you must ultimately learn, for it is the realization that the Kingdom of Heaven is restored to you.” –A Course in Miracles
There is a practice of going beyond the body which brings you to a state of wholeness in which you are perfectly healed. This is NOT an out-of-body experience. In this practice, you escape from the limitations of the body completely.
You are already doing it – many times a day actually – but you are probably not aware that you are doing it.
Here is an example: Whenever you see an accident down the road or you hear of a news story of a shooting or killing, or when someone tells you that have received news of cancer or a loved one has passed away, there is an experience where you go right to the person or situation. You don’t hesitate. You don’t have to know the person at all.
The love you are – the light you are – goes immediately to the person, to the family members involved. You go beyond the body, distance and time cannot stop this joining, and the the body does not limit you in any way.
In fact, this light cannot be contained by you. It naturally goes out and joins with another. In this moment, you forget about your own problems and pain. For that instant, you are your Self, joined with something other than yourself (which in truth is your Self).
As you become conscious of how to go beyond the body – realizing that nothing is outside of you – you can deliberately and actively do it all the time – instead of thinking about pain, problems and people.
The more time you spend going beyond the body (as opposed to being trapped in it), the more you see healing occur. You experience freedom and you will want it more and more.
In this video, I describe how this light of identifying with your true Self heals you and everything around you.
Going Beyond the Body for Healing, Health and Happiness
Many people think they know who they are, but are merely describing either their emotional state, their physical state, their personality or what they do. They might say: I am male, female. I’m a mother. I’m an addict. I’m a highly sensitive person. I’m intuitive. I’m an extrovert. I’m an introvert.
This is not who you really are.
This describes the person and you are not a person. Who you really are is eternal, changeless, nameless, formless, with no beginning and no end, all light, joined with everyone and everything, forever and forever. This is the Self you are.
In today’s video, I describe the “layers” around your Self – the emotional layer that is your thoughts, feelings, grievances, stories and your ideas about past and future. Then there is the physical layer which is your own body, the external world and other bodies. All of it is imagined and not there.
The practice I describe comes directly from Chapter 18 of A Course in Miracles.
In the video I describe the practice briefly. I do this intentionally because I encourage you to read the entire section “Beyond the Body” in A Course in Miracles yourself – because it gives the full practice, in complete detail.
So often we want others to do the work for us. We want people to read to us, or to give us what we need in a quick downloadable PDF so that no effort is required on our part and we can get back to our lives.
You can’t get in shape by watching exercise videos from the couch. And you can’t transform by listening to other teachers like me talk about it. I’m just pointing the way, seeing who is interested in doing this. You have to want to change and be willing to practice.
Dismantling the entire thought system of fear to know your Self requires discipline and commitment, and not everyone is ready for that. But perhaps you are ready.
You will know if it’s your time if you feel a stirring in you.
If this message and video interests you – and you feel that stirring in you – like GIVE ME MORE – I encourage you to buy a copy of A Course in Miracles and make a commitment to do what it says. If you already have the book, but you are still suffering, do it again – but this time make no exceptions and no compromise. It’s a course in how to know yourself and contains a complete mind-training program that gives specific and detailed instruction for transformation and change.
A Course in Miracles meets you where you think you are in thoughts of anger, separation, blame, guilt and fear and leads you back home to the love you are. No preparation is necessary. All you need is to buy the book. Do what it says. It’s so simple. It contains a text with 31 Chapters, a workbook with 365 workbook lessons – one workbook lesson for every day of the year – and a Manual for Teachers.
If you want additional support, encouragement and inspiration to complete the workbook lessons, please check out my one-year audio program called ACIM 365. I give a 10-minute audio talk for every workbook lesson, for every day of the year. You can listen to the Introduction now for free.
And I would love to hear from you.
