In many ancient traditions and healing methods, it’s understood that when you name something, you give it power.
A “label” acknowledges and empowers something — anything — and gives it form, animating it in our minds and thoughts. This is true for everything, no matter if we think it “good” or “bad”. For this reason, the ancient traditions of many lands teach that we should not name, or call by name, illness and disease.
When we name something, the label solidifies and calls into form the energy behind the name. The naming empowers the physical manifestation of that which is named, a tangible demonstration of “our thoughts create our reality”.
It’s very important that we don’t call the virus circling the globe right now by name. Simply call it “the virus”. Better yet, call it “the pandemic of 2020”. Calling it a pandemic acknowledges that this is circling the globe, and opens the way for all to be healed. Naming the year establishes a time constraint.
And who says we’ll even need to the end of the year?
With prayer, healing — miracles — can occur in an instant. And the effects travel farther and longer than we imagine.
