Pray Away the Swine Flu

Dear God,

Please take away the swine flu.

Amen

According to Martin Luther King, Jr. there is a power in us more powerful than the power of bullets.


King knew that that power was the power of the Spirit. Call it a religious power, a spiritual power, the power of consciousness or whatever – it has to do with the power of the mind, joined with the power of a Divine Creator.


So don’t be fooled when it comes to this conversation about the swine flu. This flu wasn’t created on the level of the body, because no disease is. It was created on the level of the mind, and it is there that we will root it out at the causal level.
      

For weeks, millions of people have been convinced by the media — based on endless reports about the drug cartels — that “Mexico is a dangerous place.” It is a basic truism of spiritual philosophy that, as it is written in A Course in Miracles, “all thought creates form on some level.” You get enough people agreeing in consciousness that Mexico is a dangerous place, and that dangerous thought will make it so.
     

So does that mean the media shouldn’t have reported about the drug cartels? Absolutely not. But it does bear noting that today’s media seems to have abdicated any sense of perspective, grabbing always for the most sensationalized, fear-producing angle of any story.  And we should try to filter the fear thoughts than can get into our minds as assiduously as we try to filter the germs that can get into our bodies.
      

If you get this – if you’re already grounded in faith (or at least have read “The Secret”) – then take an active part in transforming this thing. The Western allopathic medical community is doing everything it can to treat the disease on the external planes, and of course we’re grateful for that. But each and every one of us have work to do on the internal planes, to transform the disease on the level of cause as well as ameliorate whatever effects it has already produced.

l) Pray it away. Just pray it away, asking God as you understand Him, the Divine Physician, Jesus or whatever other form of divine imagery works for you. Simply ask that it be removed from our midst.
       

2) Send love to Mexico. Between what’s actually been happening there with the drug wars, plus all the “Mexico is dangerous” thoughts we’ve loaded onto it over the last several weeks, it needs a major dose of love – the most powerful medicine of all – to dissolve the fear thoughts that have produced this flu.
       

Do your part. This thing can be turned around right now, and sent back to the nothingness from whence it came. Each of us needs to stop pretending we’re powerless, use the power in our hearts and work the miracles we’re entitled to. Prayer is the medium of miracles; in whatever way works for you, pray right now.
