When I didn't hear my mother getting ready for church this morning, I figured she'd changed her mind. When she woke up she told me she had a splitting headache.
"I'm sorry to hear that," I said.
As I know my mother believes in taking tablets I said, "Have you taken anything for the headache?"
"No, I'll take some tablets later," she said. "I'm going back to bed."
"Do you want me to lay my hands on your head to see if that might help?"
"Well, yes please."
I followed mum to her bedroom. She sat on her bed and I lay my hands on both sides of her head. I closed my eyes and thought "I AM Wholeness; I AM Peace; I AM Perfection; I AM Harmony."
After about a minute I removed my hands. I left her to rest, shut the door, and returned to the living room
About two or three minutes later, mum was back.
"That pounding in my head and in my ear has been lifted."
"Really? That's good!"
"It's the great I AM you should be thanking, mum. He gets all the glory."
"Well thank you I AM," she said. "If I'd remembered earlier I would have asked you for prayer and then gone to church. It's too late now."
"Never mind. At least now I can write about your experience."
My mother went to the kitchen to prepare some custard which she fancied. Then she proceeded to teach me the finer points of making custard; the last one I made was very lumpy. Cooking is not exactly my forte; maybe I should have asked the I AM for assistance. After she finished her custard she started cooking dinner.
What do I mean by the I AM?
For me, the I AM is the Infinite Love and Intelligence in all. I sometimes refer to the I AM as My Beloved, Love, Spirit, Light or The One in All. When I prayed for my mother, I was simply affirming the truth of the I AM in me that is the same in her; which was translated in her experience as "no headache."
Peace and love to all.
