Sickness is a defense against the truth.

  In today’s lesson, Jesus says that “Healing will flash across your open mind.” What he is talking about here is the experience of perceiving yourself as a Vision of Christ. Remember, we are not bodies, we are spirit. The Holy Spirit has a gift for us to perceive within our minds. That gift is the perception of the flash of the white light of Christ. It takes a lot of practice to begin to learn how to perceive the Light of our True Self. When we perceive the Light, we are perceiving “the Light of Truth” which he also mentions in today’s lesson.

   When we first begin to open up to perceiving the Light within our minds, many of us will begin by perceiving little sparks of white light or flashes that look like stars. Some of us will have holy encounters with the Light of Christ and the Great Rays emanating from Him. Remember that these experiences are all a reflection of our True Selves. When they begin to happen, not only do we perceive the Light within our minds, we also begin to receive many other gifts from the Light at the same time as well. The brighter the light perceived, the more the gifts are experienced. This is why we practice mind training through the practice of the Workbook Lessons.

Excerpt from Lesson 136 in our Journey Through the Workbook for Students: Divine Messages


Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
