The first step in healing is to determine “who” is sick. Regardless of what the pain may seem to be, remind yourself it is not you—the real you—that is sick. You are the changeless Child of God; the extension of all God Is. To believe that you could be sick is to imagine that God could then be sick. The one who is sick is the character in the story you tell, the image of a self you have made that portrays you as a guilty person. Recognize this and what needs to be healed changes entirely. Now you can realize it is only you who must decide if the healing is justified.
