An Abridgment from
CREATIVE-IMAGE THERAPY

Four Rules of 'Mitacle Healing
THREE basic principles of
creative image therapy have
been stated: Firstly, that
the image precedes the event;
secondly, that the power of
creative image patterns may
be directed with equal force
constructively or destructively; thirdly, that mental or psychic
images are materialized into physical reality by sustained duplication.

Before presenting positive creative
image therapy techniques, it is urgently
necessary to point out a few dangerous
pitfalls and possible mistakes.

In the first place, there is the
serious danger of confusing internally.
imaged illness, or illness generated by
stress, with exh>ernally-sourced infections. It seems wlikely that sudden invasions of deadly viruses and bacteria
from outside the body -- such as those of
cholera, polio, and the like.-are apt to
be the consequence of negative mental image patterns on the part of the victim.
Of course we do know that even in the
midst of epidemics, not every one is infected. Many walk_among the dying, themselves immune. Why are some persons immune from one type, others immune from
another, and some immune, seemingly, from
all?
The answer does not always lie in
the patterns of conscious mental image
systems -- but sometimes it does through
the strange and perilous mode of sympathetically identifying one's self with
another ill, beloved person. This development of a disease or destructive pattern through the sympathy-for-another mode
of setting up the mental images is expressed in the phrases, "I know just how
you feel", "I wish I could have had this
instead of you", etc. And'if the ill beloved person-DIES, then there is a highly
strengthened intensity of the mental image patterns created by the sympathizer,
who endeavors, on the subconscious psychic
level, to "continue" the life of the lost
one, ILLNESS AND ALL!
The medical doctor, almost above
other person, often personally experience
the grim, deadly truth of the above statement. Despite the deep hostility of many
people toward the medical doctor, despite
the established fact that some medical
doctors are insane, and that some are
ruthless money-grabbers, THE BASIC REASON
for a man becoming a medical doctor is,
DESIRE TO HEAL!
What happens is that the medical doctor often becomes secretly disillusion e d
with certain of his methods, or with the
methods and attitudes of his colleagues,
and becomes hard, cynical, or the like.
Those who do not, tend to IDENTIFY THEMSELVES with their patients. This is the
reason why heart specialists, specially
the kind and good ones, mostly die of
heart failure l
Sudden invasions of killer bacteria
are not ordinarily the same thing as the
slow development of heart disease, arteriosclerosis, arthritis, tuberculosis,
stomach ulcers, and all the host of internally generated diseases that may manifest themselves in worried, distressed
individuals.

Diseases are not to be confused, or
lumped all together. Each and every one
is a different manifestation probably of
some psychic pattern S(BEHERE, but not
necessarily of consciously created and
duplicated mental image patterns. One
should never be guilty of "misidentification". _
Also, the isgoett i r: s*t. with
deadly poisons is again snottier entirely
different tye of negative event. One can
see no conscious image pattern system at
work in this kind of tragedy.

Over-zealous proponents of some religious cults try to gloss over this sort
of situation by glibly asserting that a
poison is a poison only because mankind
has "agreed" that it isa poison. This is
a piece of jackassery. In reality, a
poison operates because it physically
burns, sears, destroys tissue, or because
it inhibits or blocks actions essential
to the life of the organism that has come
into contact with it. A sword cuts and
rends, not by "agreement" but because the
steel blade separates time parts of the
