The healing principle is within man himself. Man`s power to heal himself, or extend his healing power to others, is measured by his awareness of God in him.

The Self Healing Principle

Let us consider that you are ill of body because you have made it so by desiring to make it so. If you will but realize that you are recording the pattern of defective thinking upon your Soul-record as well as right thinking, and desire instead that the normal recordings of long ages of building a normal body will regive you a normal body NOW if you will but let it. Your illness will be voided and replaced with the normalcy of the light-image of your ages-long building of your identity. If you will but look again at Fig. 6 and realize that the omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent Mind of the invisible God Light, therein symbolized, has absolute rule over the projected light of His thinking, as symbolized in Fig. 7, you will more readily comprehend how it is that the invisible omnipotent, omniscient YOU can, and do, project balanced, or unbalanced conditions to your body from your Self to create yourself in your own Image.

(Walter and Lao Russell, Atomic Suicide?, p. 258)

Causes of Ills

All of mans ills are due to his lack of knowing God within him. The perfection of Gods universe is founded upon its perfection of Balance.

All of mans ills are caused by toxic poisons generated in his body through unbalance affecting his power of control over the functions of his electric body.

Man, as an extension of God, is creator of his own electric body. He is master of his electric body to the extent of his knowing the Light of God in him.

... God says to man: »What I do, ye shall do«, but man is unbelieving for long ages.

(Walter Russell, The Message of the Divine Iliad, p.129)


What is Healing?

Most traditions and so-called alternative healing methods are in harmony with this point of view and consciously work towards restoring balance (Homeopathy, Isoopathy, Dom-therapy, New Medicine by Geerd Hamer, acidic-alkaline balance, acupuncture, TCM, Jin Shin Yiutsu, osteopathy, psychosomatic energetics, Feldenkrais, balancing dentistry, Ayurveda, Yoga, etc)

Many bioenergetica and psychotherapeutic approaches, such as the methods of the so-called spiritual healing (Christian Science, Huna, synergetics et al.), ascribe great importance to the inner balance and the devotion to the innermost centre.

In Detlef Schönenbergs approach love heals, adopted by Russell translator Dagmar Neubronner in her practice for self-healing Segensspirale, a patient, in order to heal him- or herself, needs to realize the underlying imbalance that causes the ailments and problems by being in touch with his or her innermost centre. The patient should actively work on energetic balancing in order to re-establish the possibility for centeredness on a spiritual, mental, energetic and physical level.



Just before my second major illumination at the age of fourteen, I was stricken with black diphtheria, which is identical with black plague. Cultures from my throat so blackened a case knife that the three doctors attending me said I could not possibly live, for the functions of my throat were destroyed.

Soon after, these doctors pronounced me dead. The undertakers had arrived. I had no awareness of my body, whatsoever, but while in that state a great ecstasy overwhelmed me with all-knowing Light of Love and, to the amazement of my weeping parents, I arose from my bed perfectly healed. An inspection of my throat showed a perfect normalcy of strong tissue and my weakened body was again strong and vital.

... The memory of ten times ten thousand lives mirrored themselves in Light from their records on my Soul to tell me that my body was still new that my time of disappearance had not yet come.

It was then given me to know that the power of revitalization of my body was mine, and I, who had been pronounced dead by man, lived strongly in the body.

Our Body a Miniature Galaxy

God thinks in balanced waves of light. His universal body is, therefore, in perfect balance. His entire universe does not vary in its balance by the weight of one electron. If there were the slightest variation in the balanced rhythms of Gods thinking for even one moment countless millions of lives on millions of planets in starry systems of His body would be snuffed out instantly and millions of years would elapse before life would again be possible upon those planets because of that momentary unbalance. Terrific eruptions upon nebulae and suns would transform them into entirely different intensities.

Yet that is exactly what happens to a mans body when he becomes angry, or fearful, or hates another man. Our bodies are made up of countless miniature solar and starry systems exactly as Gods body is similarly constructed. If we upset the balance of their rhythmic motion, the wave-patterns become distorted and erupt with a violence measured by the intensity of the unbalanced emotion.

And that is not all, for an unbalanced and unrhythmic body is vulnerable to deadly microbes and other infections from which rhythmically balanced bodies are insulated.

(Walter Russell, The Message of the Divine Iliad, Vol. II, p.141)

Sympathy Makes Ill

Even sorrow or sympathy for the afflicted, or grief for the passing of loved ones, unbalances the body cells and makes one vulnerable to infections or destructive toxins, for such emotions have no relation to love or the inner joyousness of love-inspired man, nor are they within the God-Mind which alone knows unchanging ecstasy.

... Grief is selfish. It is indulged in for self-gratification, not for love. Cosmic man knows the beauty and unreality of death. Sympathy for the afflicted makes a reality of the affliction by its recognition as an infliction, while sorrow for the loss of anything, or for the »unfortunate« condition of anybody, is forgetful of the beauty and abundance of all-giving God and Nature.

The Mind of God knows but one unchanging emotion ECSTASY the ecstasy of Love the ecstasy which has its beginnings in an inner joyousness of one who is far on the road to the discovery of his immortal Self.

(Walter Russell, The Message of the Divine Iliad, Vol. II, p-149)


No Miracles

There is a scientific explanation of healings by the power of Mind over matter which demonstrates that such healings are not miracles, but are within Natures law which cannot be transcended by either man or God. The Fact that they were beyond mans comprehension did not prove that they were supernatural for an airplane or radio would have been thought supernatural to dwellers in places far removed even one generation ago.

(Walter Russell, The Message of the Divine Iliad, Vol. II, p.136)


Spiritual Healing by a Surgeon

In the case of any mental unbalanced condition, the restoration of balance is purely mental. A change of thought from negative to positive will cure any mental ailment, and a physical unbalance, which is a reaction of the mental unbalance, will also become balanced. Such a Mind healing has no relation whatsoever to faith or belief. It is purely cause and effect working in accordance with Cosmic Law.

A physical abnormality, whether it be a broken bone, a cancer, a cut on the head, a gunshot wound, a paralysis from blood clots on the brain, or a misshapen body, requires physical action to aid healing. One might just as well ask God in all faith and belief to mend a broken spoke in an automobile wheel as to ask God to cure a deformed foot without intelligent action on the part of people.

(Course in Cosmic Consciousness, Unit 7, Lesson 28)


Love Heals

Love is the great insulator from every ill which can attack the body. Love is the great balance wheel or spiritual gyroscope which makes it impossible for one to injure his own body by emotions which poison his body. Every emotion of any nature which is not based upon Love poisons the body and tears every nerve to the extent of the variance of that emotion from the balance which Love alone insulates one from.

He whose emotions are based upon Love commands the light-waves which compose his body. The most virulent pestilence could not touch one who is thus insulated by Love. He who eliminates Love from his thinking, and its consequent emotion, is slave to his body and exposes it to toxic dangers in the measure of his unbalance, and his mind to the ravages of unbalance which lead to insanity.

The principle which governs such variations is electric balance between both opposite pulsations of the heartbeat and their fulcrum from which they spring. All mental and physical illnesses arise from unbalance between these pulsations.
