One of the greatest spiritual lies we have invested in is that we need to work on ourselves in order to be healed. Through thousands of years, varying religions, and even in the spiritual community, there is a false belief that we must continue to work on ourselves personally and spiritually in order to earn our health, wealth, love, abundance, or spiritual advancement. It has become an addiction that almost all spiritual and religious people struggle with and most are dangerously unaware of.
THE ADDICTION TO HEALING
When pursuing a spiritual path we may try many modalities and study varying belief systems in an effort to manifest the results we wish to see. The spiritual and metaphysical fields are endless rabbit holes of courses, classes, fusions of modalities, new modalities, and rituals. With each of these comes a new hope that we will finally be cured of our illness, poverty, codependency, lack of love, or whatever it is we are struggling with. We become addicted to the concept of needing to do more, be more, understand more, or learn more. If we struggle with money and a money issue arises a spiritually minded person may say something such as, “I just need to keep working on my money consciousness.” Or perhaps our overall life is undesirable and we simply make a blanket statement such as, “I guess I need to keep working on myself.”
This form of consciousness is an addiction to the idea of not being good enough, and addiction to the lie that we are inferior, and in short, that we believe we are separate from God. Subscribing to the lie that you need to work on yourself is committing to belief that you are separate from God and lacking His wholeness, which of course, is a falsity. Each time we feed into this lie we are fueling our addiction. Each time we commit to something else outside of ourselves with the belief of needing more work, we are letting our human consciousness convince us that we are not good enough. When we tell ourselves we must balance our chakras, perform rituals, charge our crystals, read particular manuscripts or conduct certain behaviors so that we can progress, we are again buying into the idea that we must do something in order to reach a certain level of our consciousness. This is a clever way ego keeps us believing we are not enough and that some day, with enough work, we can be worthy of earning God’s love, prosperity, and health.
The Truth is, you are the image and likeness of God and cannot be lacking in anything other than Divine discernment. Knowing that you are whole and complete in God quashes all lying symptoms of anything outside of God.
You do not need to be healed, you are healed now in the name of God. You are already whole and complete in the name of the Holy Spirit and nothing of this earth can remove that from you unless you give it permission.
You do not need to work on yourself. The work has been done, all sins have been removed, all sickness has been eradicated, and the Truth is that there is only God, all seeming else is a lie. The last words spoken by Jesus on the cross were, “It is finished.”(John 19:30) The idea of separation, the lie of sin, the beliefs in sickness and death, as well as all thoughts of “evil”, were relinquished with those three words. You need not do anything else, you need not do more work, and you need not pay penance hereafter. It is finished. You need only accept it and realize your wholeness in God and you will see the results manifest into your life, once and for all.
By refuting the lie that you need to work on yourself and owning the Truth that you are already whole, complete, and healed in God, your consciousness will shift and deliver the results to corroborate your new understanding.
Surrender the idea that you are inferior and must earn anything, for everything of God’s is your Divine privilege and available to you upon your request.
When we fully understand who we are in God and the rights we have as Divine souls, we can release the lie that we are inferior and finally conquer our addiction to working on ourselves. We can finally see the Truth that we are whole and complete in God and can then live in our wholeness rather than pursuing wholeness outside of ourselves.
