Spiritual Treatment

Spiritual Treatment

Spiritual Treatment is prayer directed at a pressing problem or concern. Unlike general prayers which are our daily visit with God, a treatment is a surgical operation on the soul. A difficulty has arisen in our life; the reasons for its arrival a distraction, like focusing on who sold the nail we stepped on when the indicated action is medical attention. Treatment prayers focus on resolution, not causality while general prayers typically are “checking” in with God, daily affirmations of our love, trust and faith in the Miraculous. The essential difference is fear. Spiritual Treatment is indicated when you or someone you care about has become ill, possibly in financial difficulties or some relationship either personal or professional has begun too or has turned sour or any other life condition causing fear.

We employ Spiritual Treatment by:

1) First, find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed. Begin with a general prayer (something significant, positive and compelling to you).

2) Now, take a few cleansing breaths (gently through the nose, filling the lungs and then slowly exhaling through the mouth) then picture the subject of the treatment in your mind’s eye. Now visualize the problem passing from your hands to God’s. If the difficulty is hard to visualize, then visualize the individual (including yourself) free of the difficulty, surrounded by God’s creative love and healing.

3) Close the treatment with a prayer affirming God’s love, guidance, limitless power and knowledge and then thank Him for the healing you believe will come and then:

4) Leave it be. Do not try to visualize how God will work or specifics of the outcome (even if it is a physical healing). This is outlining and always leads to trouble and discontent. Do not repeat the treatment out of fear. If something happens or changes regarding the difficulty and it feels appropriate, treat again, but do not begin from fear. If fearful, first address the fear with prayer. This can be as simple as repeating the prayer: Be Still And Know That I Am God until peace of mind has returned. Once the fear induced anxiety has subsided, you can then treat the issue again. Remember:

Fear is not the difficulty being treated. Fear is what makes the difficulty seem overwhelming. Fear is the self-centered belief that God will not act, that somehow, someway we have traveled beyond the pale, so far from God that our prayers are not heard or worse rejected or ignored. Nonsense. No one, no matter what has transpired in their life is separated from God. We build the walls; create the false sense of separation, not God.

When we allow fear dominion, we operate on our soul with a rusty scalpel and a shaking hand. God can and will solve all difficulties, if, though perhaps trembling, we stand firm in faith and consistent action.

Silk sheets or city streets, Park Avenue or park bench, addiction is an equal opportunity destroyer of lives. My name is Vincent Lee Jones and I have been in recovery since September 1985. My professional career began when I was nearly 20 years in recovery and was asked to work pro bono with at risk students at Huntington Beach High School. At the time I had developed a reputation within the at large recovery community as an effective communicator and was known to some of the faculty. After the death of two students from prescription drugs I was asked to start working with at risk students, which I did for nearly 5 years. Word of mouth lead to offers of compensated freelance Facilitator and Director positions with numerous local treatment facilities in the ensuing years. As a retired Building Contractor/Designer, working in conjunction with a treatment facility, I created a construction program utilizing a workforce comprised almost exclusively of people new or returning to recovery, helping them to not only learn a trade and start making a living but since many of them had relapsed numerous times, to begin truly building a foundation with real aftercare to live free of active addiction. This program changed many lives. In my 30+ years in recovery I have worked with thousands of individuals from all walks of life, teenagers to the retired, famous to infamous, prosperous to those living hand to mouth, adamant atheists to those embracing strong Religious beliefs; suffering from all manner of intoxicant and behavior-based addictions as well as those who love and care about them, both as a member in recovery Fellowships and as a treatment professional. I can be contacted at 714-366-1725. I write and publish daily a recovery based nondenominational spiritually based blog at https://livinginspirit.blogspot.com with accompanying videos that can be found as well on YouTube and LinkedIn at Vincent Lee Jones.
