This weeks blog is on Words as instruments of Power
and finding balance in the central column of the Tree of Health (i.e. finding the middle way)

“Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.” Mahatma Gandhi

There has been an overemphasis on the words of Hope, Faith, Trust, Belief, Surrender, Love, etc in this blog. Words help strike at the core of disease. If we look at Genesis we see that God “called” or “named” the entire universe into being. We must not underestimate the power of the spoken word since it was God’s word that called matter into existence.  
The word manifests as the deed,
The deed develops into habit and habit hardens into character.
So watch the thought and its ways with care and let it spring from love born out of concern for all beings.  Buddha
Will is magnified and expanded by the power of Imagination of the outcome which must become a sustained practice. The practice of imagination has been sorely neglected. God, The Field, The Force, Spirit ... responds to 
(to detail as in precisely imagining how you would want the healing outcome to look which involves Free Will) 
(i.e. sustaining it, repeating it - a single attempt will be ineffective.)

In Kabbalah there are in fact four separate but interconnected Trees of Life representing the four distinct phases of creation.  The first is Emanation or Calling or Naming. The second is the Tree of Creation. The third is Formation and the fourth Tree is Making or Actualization. In fact anything that becomes manifest, wellness included, also goes through these distinct four phases. If we look at the example of building a house we can easily recognize the four phases.
First is the intention, the will or intention to Call it into being . Then we Create the blueprint or plan with the help of an architect. The Formation process follows when the building contractor assembles the team who order the materials etc. Ultimately the final product is Made and we have the house.
         We should recognize the four potential phases in the creation of health as well and for the sake of helping our Inner Healer should give each stage its due attention. Since our Inner Healer is fashioned in the image of God, it knows the alchemy required to create health out of disease.
We can Call will or intend wellness into being and then Create a plan to be well. This is followed by Formation of the details required and finally we take action, Making or doing what is appropriate for the challenge at hand. Action is phase four which is the making of health and this involves choice.
