I lay very still. I closed my eyes. It seemed for
hours the etheric knife was busy with its work upon
A great shaft of light pierced my abdomen, inter-
penetrating my stomach and bowels. Knives also of
light were busily at work, hacking away, breaking
away, tearing away the diseased tissue; making way
for reparation, regeneration, revivification of my
My back, which had been torn by pain, was
pierced by rays of light. I saw them with my inner
consciousness, my eyes being closed the while.
This continued for a week while I lay physically
quiet. No disease could endure the radiance in
which I was immersed. I knew I was healed. I could
see my organs. Each individual organ in my body
was outlined and illuminated like a neon sign. I
could see the circulation of blood in my body.
I lay in bed on Easter morning. In the stillness of
my room, I glimpsed the significance of the
Resurrection. I realized the role that the
Resurrection had played in my individual experi-
ence. I reminisced the multitudes of times I had in
the past eight years read, reviewed, and meditated
upon the Resurrection of Jesus.
I was grateful I had learned to let the light of God
flow through me. I was thankful too that on this
Easter day I had caught the true import of Easter—
My husband brought to my room an Easter lily—
perfect, waxen, pure white. A friend sent me a
Japanese lily, a brownish orange with darker spots.
Easter afternoon I got up and dressed and walked
from room to room. My home was beautiful, more
glorious than ever. I looked out of all the windows
from the different rooms to view the flower garden.
The lawn of Coos Bay bent-grass which had been
planted during my stay in bed was coming up to
light with sprouts of healthy green. Everywhere I
looked new growth and flowers were bursting forth
to show their joy of existence. Even the garden had
caught the consciousness of the Resurrection.
I saw the oneness of the universe. I caught the joy
of the cosmic consciousness flowing blithely
through everything. I saw God shining through.
When my friend, the nurse, left she said, “Dear,
you will never know what this month has meant to
me.” Our hands met. She understood.
Now I could travel through walls, enter sick bod-
ies and make them well. When I looked at a person,
I could see his organs as if my consciousness were
an X-ray and if there was a faulty place, it was dark,
When one of my neighbors came in to see me,
she said her husband was in bed with a serious case
of pneumonia. His mother was sitting with him. Out
from my consciousness darted a streak of light. It
penetrated the chest of the sick man.
The next morning she came again to say with sur-
prise, “My husband is up, working in the garden
this morning. Isn’t it amazing?” I was not surprised.
A card came stating my mother had been hit by
an automobile. That she was bruised and jarred
quite badly was the extent of the account. As I read
this card out darted with terrific speed light without
limit from my consciousness. It pierced the con-
sciousness of my mother and warmed, soothed, and
The next day she came to see me. Her body was
black and blue but she told me that suddenly it
seemed as if a cloud had lifted from her and the
shock, the pain, and soreness had left.
I had learned that Light is the healer, the emanci-
pator, the liberator. I realized that anything opposed
to Light is to be eschewed. A universal concept of
things possessed me. My mind had expanded and
bounds and boundaries had given way.
As I was sitting in the sunroom, a voice clear and
bell-like said to me, “You have stood the test. You
have learned to rely on God. You have graduated
from former ignorance and darkness. You realize
the One Power in the Universe—God only.
“You are now initiated into the Order of Light,
which has no mysteries, no secrets, no seclusions
from public view. There is no limitation as to mem-
bership. As many may belong as will stand the test.
Rely upon God only.
“You are on a firm foundation of knowing God.
It is now your work to show others the path of light,
the path of harmony, the pathway of freedom. Will
you do this?”
“I will,” I answered.
No more pain; no more sickness. Vibrant health
manifest where disease had dwelt. Former things
had passed away; all things had been made new. Ë
