I Am Dreaming -- I Must Be Waking up

I am a miracle healer simply because I decided to be one. Recently I moved to the Miracles Healing Center in Wisconsin Dells, where we offer a 24 hour prayer line. We take turns in answering the phone during the night, and last night it was my turn.

So, someone called for help early in the morning while I was still asleep. To my surprise I was awake immediately. I was clear in thought, teaching the idea that this is in its entirety a dream, and nothing but a dream. What does it matter what happens in the dream, who you seem to be, and where you seem to find yourself. A dream is a dream; it is not real, it doesn't have any meaning. Your only necessity is to wake up. That was so clear to me. It made me laugh. What a start for a new day. It was exactly what I needed to hear myself. Wake up sleepy head...

How does one do this? It is very simple. If all of this is your dream, then all of your perception is equally unreal and meaningless. You have to start from there, and not waver or compromise. Because then you are right in the middle of your necessity to train your mind. Mind training is essential, because you can't afford to give meaning to what is meaningless and past. What is unreal, will never have meaning. And now look at you. How quickly you forget!

"What if you recognized this world is an hallucination? What if you really understood you made it up?"
(Chapter 20.VIII, A Course In Miracles)

How fast you rush in to judge and claim to know what is going on in any given situation! It is all not so. You are completely mistaken. You see only the past. You therefore see nothing as it is now, meaning you don't see at all. What you perceive in a dream could not be called seeing, could it? As you let go of your preoccupation with dreams and past ideas you are released, focusing on what is true and loving it. That will make you happy like nothing else will. And it is all up to you. You decide whether to give meaning to what is meaningless or not. When you are afraid, you have decided to value wrongly. Amazing.

I enjoy my healing shifts at the Miracles Healing Center. It is a wonderful energy here, healing energy. We answer prayer requests, answer the prayer phone line, and pray for those who requested prayers. Sometimes we also get visitors who seek for help. It is a great way to give and serve, because I also receive the healing that I pray for. I know miracles are happening. Miracles correct our perceptions, and heal our needs and dysfunctions. Today I listened to beautiful music during my shift, while sitting in the sanctuary. I cried. Not only with all those who turn to us, but because I know that they are getting healed. It is a miracle. I am so grateful.
