The I AM power is
the healing power of the universe. It's the force from
which the universe is made, and it is also the basic
substance of which we are made. The I AM power
can be experienced as a light or as a profound feeling
in the heart or as great wisdom.
There is no limit to
the power of the I AM to heal and transform every
aspect of life. The word "OM"
is a form of "I AM" as well.
We can say, "I
AM the power of healing, and I AM healing myself
now." Or, "I AM the Life-
radiating in every cell of my body, every part of my
mind, and every situation in my life." Using these
words is a call to the universe, to
the healing power, to God, asking that the doors be
opened to release pure and radiant energy into our
When we put
negativities after I AM, as in "I am sick," or "I am a
failure," it creates great limitation. Instead you can
affirm that you are the I AM power, and you are filled
with enormous capacities for transformation.
Meditating with the I AM
If you'd like, you
can sit down in a quiet place and pay attention to
your breathing. You can then say to yourself "I" on
the inbreath and "AM" on the outbreath. You can
keep your focus as long as possible, continuing to
bring yourself back to the "I AM" whenever you can.
All Paths are Built Upon I AM
revelations, all paths, are based upon the I AM. God
is often known as the I AM. The Judeo-Christian as
well as Eastern paths are all infused with the I AM
power. Jesus said, "I AM the Light of the world."
Rumi, the great Sufi poet, wrote:
I am neither a Moslem nor a Hindu
I am not Christian, Zoroastrian, nor Jew.
My place is the no-place
My image is without face
Neither of body nor the soul
I am of the Divine Whole.
Come to experience the I AM for yourself at the
"Spiritual Healing Power" Workshop - both in Oakland
and Massachusetts. See the next article on how you
can get involved.
