Giving God Healing?

Updated on October 30, 2010

Positive Thoughts Bring Positive Results

Since I can remember, I look at the glass as half full. I have had siblings die young, parents and many others I was close to, but the glass is half full. Why? Because it feels so much better than falling apart. After our children began their own families and left home, I thought "now we have a guest room!" When our last child, our son, had the nerve to leave the nest, I cried and cried, because out of his whole life, we only had seven months alone together, he and I and my husband. After five minutes...only kidding, but about three months after he left, I thought, "now I'll have my own home office!" When my younger sister died suddenly, I paid attention to the signs she gave to us that she was happy where she was and would still send her love. She was having a wonderful time where she is.

One of God's Gifts to Us

Seek and Ye Shall Receive

One night, for some reason, Hubby's snoring was disturbing, because I had to get up very early. I was torn. I wanted to sleep with my husband, but when married as long as we have been, a decent night's sleep will sometimes win over cuddling.

Now I am wide awake in the spare room. Great! I began my usual thanking God for something new every day. While doing that, suddenly my mind sounded like this: "Wow. How weird. I wonder what it would be like to be God, where billions and billions of people pray for trillions and trillions of prayers, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week..." The wondering was daunting. My conscious mind was telling me that this was ridiculous, to wonder so much about something I could not know. I decided to send healing to God. I mean, I felt really bad!

"God," I said, "I am not asking you for anything, no healing for me, not anyone. I am sending you my gratitude for all there is, because everything is perfect in its time. Thank you for everything in this life." I continued thanking God, then opened wide my heart and let the light out. I sent it out into the Universe to heal my God. "I love you, God. Hear is my light, my love. I send you blessings and my healing from the light you gave to me."

I do not remember anything after that. For the first time in years, I slept through the rest of the night. My husband and I met in the bathroom the next morning. He hugged me tight. "Well, now," I said. "How nice."

He said to me, "you want to hear something really weird?" Mind you, my husband is not in the habit of hugging me in the bathroom, especially before teeth brushing. He said, "Thank you. I love you." Okay, now I know something weird is going on. That's just not hubby's style, especially not at that time of day.

"Okay," I said, "what's this all about?" He said, "I was meditating until I heard you go into the bathroom. Just as I was going to get up, a voice so loud, so clear, it was as though someone was right next to me and speaking into my left ear." "And what did this voice say?" I asked. " It said, 'Give Cherie a big hug and tell her thank you.'"

I stared blankly at him. "Oh, my God!" I finally said. " I know exactly what that's about!" I told my husband about my healing meditation, kind of wanting to give God a bit of a break, at least from me. As we wiped each other's tears, mine began to pour. My heart felt like it would burst from a most profound sense of being loved, and of peace like none I have ever known.



Look, I know God doesn't need my healing, I am sure it is what's in our hearts that count. Our intent flows into the Universe and God knows each and every one of us. Try it. Instead of asking for something, thank God for something new, then take some slow deep breaths, open your heart, let the light out, and send your love, blessings and healing to God. Just do it. See how you feel. See what happens. No expectations, or you leave yourself open to disappointment. Just send that light.

My love and Light to you

      Hi Jannie D,

      Thank you for your kind words. I agree with you. It just happened that through my wondering of how God's consciousness absorbs all there is, I thought, "wow, He deserves healing from ME, not more requests." That might sound silly to the conscious mind, but hey, I'm simply human, right? :)

      All I know is, I do not even remeber falling asleep, and I was given a gift I never asked for: God's confirmation that He heard me! I have never had such a powerful and beautiful gift!

      Thanks again for reading and taking the time to respond.

      God bless you,

      Thanks Dr Cherie. It confirms the ways wars were fought in the old testament where Judah had to go ahead and praise God before the attack and the victory was assured. Sometimes its less about us and more about God when we break through to His holy place!

      Hey, Dilima,

      This makes me so happy. Many times in my practice, something told me to tell that person in front of me, about this experience. It has helped so many, so I thought, why not put it on hubpages and help so many more? Remember, if you have experienced something, someone else has too. I believe we are all here to give healing is some way, and sharing our experiences and how they have changed how we believe or feel, is a part of the healing way.

      Keep your eyes open as well as your heart, and you will receive more confirmation, as you did at work. I would share that if I were you.

      God bless you

      I remember this story and would love to read more. I would be lieing if i said a few nights i think i did the same thing, instead of saying " god can you please help me" i told him that he was great for doing what he does.( i think this happen ) i'm not one to lie about anything so i hope i actually remember doing this! not to mention a few days later i had a very good day at work, where i actually felt blessed and was kind of a kick start into s believing.

      the way everything played just seem a little too unbelievable and i think this will be my first hub. thanks for the idea Dr. Cherie :)

      Hi Caligirl,

      He may have whispered in your ear but you just don't remember :) He also comes to us differently. He whispered in my husband's ear, but the confirmation was for me! So, He came to me through my husband, because that was perfect for me.

      Thank you. Your comments are so true. Keep your heart open... as well as your senses and eyes. God bless you.

      Thank you so much. I just love it when God shows up. Supernatural occurrences like this story, shows just how close He is to us and how He is truly in control. Impossible to deny Him, when He orchestrates these moments of confirmation. I have never had Him whisper in my ear, but I'm hoping...thank you for sharing your moment. Huge!!

      Hi Katyzzz,

      Yes it is. But I guess I needed that experience. It is easy to say "I believe," but it's another and greater feeling to say "I know!" Thank you for sharing.

      Hey, there rls8994,

      Thank you so much for your kind words. I so appreciate it. It is why I decided to write this experience, because it has helped so many of my patients and friends. Often God speaks to us right into our ears! If you have ever heard your name while half asleep, don't be surprised (a good brainwave state to be in to hear a different dimension).

      Just your intent to have a close relationship with God is all it takes, but keep aware, as He will choose how to let you know that you are NEVER alone.

      God bless

      Dear Pamela,

      Thank you so much for the kind words. It encourages me to write about some of my experiences when healing with God. It has helped some of my patients, so I thought, why wouldn't these experiences inspire people on HubPages? I guess it has.

      Thanks again for sharing.

      God bless,

      Dr. Cherie, I love this hub. Your prayer and attitude are exactly what I want and strive towards. Gratitude in a prayer rather than asking for needs to be met seemed to open a whole new way of thinking. I am marking this hub as it is very inspiring. Thanks.

      Hey, Mekenzie,

      What a beautiful comment you wrote. I so appreciate your kind words. It certainly was an affirmation for me and my husband. I suppose that if I didn't need it, it would not have happened. Then again, perhaps it was also for others with whom I share this experience. There have been times when one of my patients is speaking or listening to me, and I am overcome with an inner voice that tells me to share this experience with them, seemingly so unrelated to what they are there for or what we are speaking about. And it turns out to be exactly what they needed to hear. It is a voice I trust now.

      Thank you again. You are a beautiful old soul.

      Dr. Cheri, Precious words from a very sensitive and sweet daughter of the Living God. Interesting how your thoughts stopped in the middle of praise and you pictured GOD hearing all of His Children calling out to Him .. your expression of love obviously touched the heart of God. AMAZING!

      Beautiful affirmation of a GOD who heard you and showed His appreciation of your worship ... He manifested His LOVE for you through your dear hubby! Thanks for sharing it was beautiful! Mekenzie

      Hey Ghost W,

      You are so terrific! Thank you for taking the time to write and to do a special prayer for us. I so welcome that. Yeah, I know how you probably felt. It is such an awesome feeling when the spirit fills your heart so full of not only such love, but it is then that we know, absolutely know, we are loved, we are lovable and we are accepted for the very ones we are.

      God bless you and your huge heart!

      Hi Quill,

      Thank you so much. Yes, my husband is a great man and I thank God every day for bringing us together. We are a good team. And I thank you once more for igniting the inspiration to write this. Don't know why I hadn't before, as it has helped people to hear it.

That is the best story!! are so loving--your heart is so good, it has always been so good-both of you-- and I would have cried so hard from happiness if that was me too! What a beautiful picture of you both! I just put my hand on it and said the best prayer for you both..sniff..sniff...blowing my nose in my tissue really loud and laughing at me..

      When you said...your heart felt like it would burst from a most profound sense of being loved by God..Yes!

      Hi Dr. Cherie... It is always a challenge to be the first...what you have written is something I have never thought much about offering my healing to God...

      God must feel hurt over all He sees happening with His children...Great hub...hugs to hubby for caring...that is a sign of a good man...

      Blessings and Hugs
