Thought is an effective instrument for repairing damage on the psychic plane, but not for curing disorders in the physical body
"Thought is an effective instrument for repairing damage on the psychic plane, but not for curing disorders in the physical body. Even if the results are not immediate, someone who knows how to work with thought can succeed in overcoming grief, doubts, and anxieties. But to be able to influence the physical body is quite another matter. For this you have to be capable of materialising your thought, and this requires exceptional powers and great knowledge. Thought can affect matter only if it is highly concentrated and condensed. So many people come to tell me that they have tried to heal themselves through concentration and visualisation but have achieved nothing. Well, of course! Before you are able to heal through the powers of thought, you must work for a very long time on the intermediaries between the mental and the physical planes. And in the meantime, you have to accept the fact that physical illnesses can be treated effectively only by physical means."
