Spiritual service is today’s sure path to spiritual growth

In
life, you get what you give. By spiritually uplifting the world, you
spiritually uplift yourself. People used to gain spiritual growth by
becoming isolated from humanity. They would meditate in a remote cave
or join a monastery in order to free themselves of the distractions of
the world.

However, with today’s emerging heart-centered
consciousness, everything has changed. Instead of isolation from
humanity, the key to progress is now service to others and that means
living in the noise and information overload of the modern world. This
article will show you how to deliver effective spiritual service by
healing the world.

Never underestimate your power as a spiritual
being in a material world. You have the ability to call on the power
of spiritual to transform the world into a better place.

How to Heal The World

You can heal the world by any of these means.

  • Prayer – by asking God or the universal Spirit for assistance
  • Intention – by visualizing and creating a better reality
  • Healing – by sending spiritual healing energy out into the world
  • Or… you can make a huge difference by combining all three!

In
nearly five decades of spiritual research, the most effective and
balanced practice for world healing that I ever found is one I learned
in my early days in 1972. This time-tested and proven technique
achieves remarkable results through the attraction, conditioning and
transmission of spiritual healing energy.

The Nature of Spiritual Healing Energy

Spiritual
healing energy is a conditioned form of universal , which
is an all-pervasive, that is essential to life. It comes
from the center of the universe, through the Sun, and fills all of the
space around you. As a non-physical, etheric form of energy,
universal life energy responds immediately to applied mental pressure.
This means that you can use your faculty of imagination to apply
mental pressure to attract, condition, and radiate this energy.

Create a Positive Outcome

First,
visualize the positive change that you want to bring into being in
the world. Even though you are healing something that you perceive as
negative, it is important to focus, instead, on the desired positive
outcome. If you send energy to something negative, you will amplify its
power. By sending energy conditioned for a positive outcome, you make
that form of healing possible.

For example, in your mind’s eye,
instead of a world suffering from strife, visualize the people of the
world at peace. When you think of world peace, what is the first
symbol that springs to mind – a crowd of happy children, a world
without borders? Use that symbol, or, if pictures don’t easily come to
mind, simply use the words, world peace, as the focus for your intention.

Or,
instead of seeing spiritual ignorance and the suffering that it
prolongs, visualize people who are becoming enlightened by spiritual
understanding. Use the first picture that comes to mind or the words, world enlightenment.

Or,
as another example, instead of seeing people displaced and distraught
from a recent catastrophe, you could see aid workers being successful
in their efforts to bring relief and medical assistance to those
people, or use the words, energy to the aid workers.

How to Amplify Your Healing Power

To
practice the simple and effective World Healing Technique, close your
eyes and sit upright. If possible, let your hands rest in your lap,
palms facing upwards.

Before proceeding, take a moment to
recognize your spiritual nature. Know that you are a spiritual being
living in a physical world. Take this opportunity to look upwards to
higher realms of consciousness and ask God or the universal Spirit for
the life energy that you are about to use. Life energy is there for
you to use whether you ask or not, but the act of asking lifts your
mind above the material world and forges a spiritual connection
between you and the higher realms.

Be sure to add heart-centered
feeling to your spiritual thoughts. Gratitude is a powerful inducer
of unconditional love, so give thanks to the Creator for universal
life energy, for everything that you love about your life, and for
existence itself. This spiritual connection of heart and mind will
raise your frequency of consciousness and this amplifies your healing
efforts many times.

Breathe rhythmically and evenly, focusing
your attention on your breath. Take several breaths and, with each
in-breath, visualize life energy building into a vibrant white light
within your body and energizing you with its . Now,
we’re ready to use the inbreath-outbreath cycle to transmit healing
energy for the specified purpose.

Transmission of Healing Energy

With
every inbreath, see your lungs being filled with the vibrant white
light of universal life energy. With every outbreath, recall your
visualization or repeat your intention in your mind and send the power
of this love and light out into the world. See this energy as a beam
of brilliant white light coming from the focal point of your heart
energy, which is located outside of your physical body approximately
four inches (ten centimeters) in front of the breastbone.

Perform
this as a series of inbreaths and outbreaths for as long as you wish,
then relax and spend some time in the afterglow of a spiritual mission
well accomplished.

These are the days of action, and that means
service to others. Even better, your service to others also builds your
spiritual growth. Action and reaction are opposite and equal.

Every time you send your light out into the world,
you take another step forward in your spiritual growth.

  • Sit upright with your eyes closed.
  • Make a spiritual connection, one which includes gratitude for life.
  • Intend world healing by visualizing the desired positive outcome.
  • Breathe in life energy with each inbreath.
