ACIM Physical Healing

Greetings Enlightenees!

I was talking to someone with a health problem yesterday. I was trying to explain how we are a never ending flow of energy flowing like a fountain out of the consciousness of ourselves into externalised form. The picture of "The Heart's Electromagnetic Field" kind of shows it:

I was explaining that in order to change some physical aspect of yourself you need to start at the inside, with thought. As ACIM states 'All thought creates form at some level'.

What I have also learned is the importance of feeling, with heartfelt sincerity, the state of intended being.

A combination of the thought combined with focussed feeling in your heart area then create an electromagnetic interaction at a particle level which creates the intended form.

So any healing of either your physical being or your external experience of life while within the illusion has to start on the inside of your being, prior to form.

I then remembered, no I didn't, I had thrust forward into my mind, the image from a documentary I saw years ago where a scientists had found brain stem cells in the heart, functioning as a microscopic version of the big thing in our heads. It was intelligent, and 2 way communication was taking place between the heart and the brain via electromagnetic impulses. It was another fascinating glimpse into science recognising what spirituality has always recognised.

I did some digging and found a website with scientific studies into the subject which stated...

"The heart communicates with the brain and body in four ways:

Neurological communication (nervous system)
Biophysical communication (pulse wave)
Biochemical communication (hormones)
Energetic communication (electromagnetic fields")
(Electromagnetism is the process through which we create form from consciousness remember)

"....Taken together, the results of these studies demonstrate that intentionally altering one’s emotional state through heart focus modifies afferent neurological input from the heart to the brain.

The data suggest that as people experience sincere positive feeling states, in which the heart’s rhythms become more coherent, the changed information flow from the heart to the brain may act to modify cortical function and influence performance.

These findings may also help explain the significant shifts in
increased mental clarity and
heightened intuitive awareness
many individuals have reported......"

I have a slight problem with this, even though it is really great.

What the scientists are missing is one vital bit. They are continually looking at effects...past tense... and missing the point that cardiomental intention generates the very effects they are studying! Somebody get me a whiskey!

The same goes for treatment of any physical condition or life condition.

If you believe and feel that you are justified in suffering, whether through disease, poverty, misery, whatever, then your being will respond to that intent impartially by externalising that cardiomental state of belief. It is impartial, Neutral, the 3rd state of electromagnetism in form, the finalised image we see in our physical existence.

Therefore any medication is only treating effects already established in form.

It's like having dirty water flowing out of your taps. You wouldn't try to put detergent into the water pouring out, you would go to the source of the problem and treat the cause, eliminating the negative effect.

Likewise, in order to regain control of our existence we need to intentionally steal back our power from the Ego using conscious loving intent to shape our reality in every aspect of our being, physical and non physical.

Jesus had somehow worked out perfectly how this happens and had remembered the art of instant manifestation and healing, which I think must be down to his level of KNOWING rather than our rather feeble in comparison level of BELIEF.

The heart is the most powerful generator of electromagnetic energy in the human body, producing the largest rhythmic electromagnetic field of any of the body’s organs.

The heart’s electrical field is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the electrical activity generated by the brain.

This field, measured in the form of an electrocardiogram (ECG), can be detected anywhere on the surface of the body.

Furthermore, the magnetic field produced by the heart is more than 5,000 times greater in strength than the field generated by the brain, and can be detected a number of feet away from the body, in all directions, using SQUID-based magnetometers

This research elucidates the intriguing finding that the electromagnetic signals generated by the heart have the capacity to affect others around us.

This last line states beautifully, from a scientific point of view, what I have learned.
It explains how ACIM has changed my world, from my relationships to my health, because I am healing from the cause, not treating the effect, but doing it with real heartfelt desire and controlled dedicated loving thought.

In loving intentional creation...


Note from webmaster of, Katherine T Owen

Thank you to Keith for a fascinating article. He has become an regular contributor to on the link between science and spirituality. I am very grateful.

It is so great to be reminded that we keep trying to change the effect not the cause. Of course sometimes it seems to work so well. For example, we manage to steer clear of someone who triggers us, only to find the issue pops up again in the form of another who does the same. A repeating pattern in our life, in our health or relationships is an invitation to look at how our thoughts are contributing.

This is not about blame. Simply about going back to the water source, as Keith says, rather than trying to add detergent as the water pours out.

I had a great example of this once.

When I was disabled, I had someone to type for me. I had made changes to a table of contents and asked her to type them in, explaining that she needed to change the original text, not the table which automatically drew from what was in the file.

When I was able to get to the computer, I updated the automatic table of contents and all the changes were gone. She had changed the table.

Every now and again, the file of our lives is updated. All our attempts to control ourselves and our circumstances disappear and we are left with the problem once again, in a different form.

Thank you Keith for the reminder that it is worth looking at changing the source.

With the only Love there is ,

Healing Rhythms
by: True Alisandre

Since ’94, I have been an avid hand drummer/percussionist and an ACIM student as well. Recently, I’ve been experiencing the wordless joy & happiness due to totally letting go in spontaneous healing rhythm making (see RMM = Recreational Music Making which has been researched extensively.)

In the Teachers Manual of ACIM, it states: “But the content of the course never changes. Its central theme is always, “God’s Son is guiltless, and in his innocence is his salvation.”
This Innocence and can be taught by actions or thoughts, in words or soundlessly, in any language or in no language, in any place or time or manner.”

I’m convinced that the Holy Spirit is most definitely present in the healing rhythms of spontaneous drum & percussion gatherings. These (sometimes called Drum Circles) groups are in many ways like the Circle of Atonement which is presented in Chapter 14, Section V.

In a free form, unplanned, spontaneous percussive music session everyone is assembled to just experience pure joy without judgment of any kind as to the outcome. We just non-verbally agree to ‘have fun playing music.’

Sometimes a bit of direction is required if a large group of children comes into the circle of rhythm players all at once. This happened just last weekend when three of us core drummers where playing in a national park (Hot Springs National Park, AR.) & the 5 children who ran up to play with us, sat down in a line, and we handed them instruments.

After a while, they became willing to sing vocal sounds in a call-response fashion sorta like this: “Hey, ya, hey ya…Hey, ya, ho.”

Then being inspired, I remembered the figure of speech in our Western culture: Oh My God & made up a chant:


The children seemed to really get into this, and their parents were overjoyed, and video’d the whole thing. This is just the continuing of the lesson about how drumming with no end in mind, can be a source of the Holy Instants that the Course is encouraging us to experience in order to emanate God’s Love into this illusion experience called Earth life.

If anyone wants to communicate with me about the use of healing rhythms - Rhythms for living Innocently, experiencing Holy Instants, please write to: or post on my Facebook page: True Mark Alisandre.

Also, I have published a small booklet that I've used for Peaceful Defenseless Driving presentations (have been doing them for over 10 years) titled: GRACEFUL OBSERVANT DRIVING = GOD. It has 8 aspects of the driving ritual briefly 'explained differently' with a short song at the bottom for 'seeing the automotive experience differently.' Across from each page is a blank page for the user of this booklet to make notes in, as they endeavor to 'drive with the Holy Spirit or their aware self.'
