How Wholeness Leads to Emotional Healing
SYNOPSIS: It is time to be kinder to yourself. Join us Sunday as we engage in self-compassion which will help you alleviate self condemnation, judgement and criticism.
Unity was founded on the personal healing of our co-founders Myrtle and Charles Fillmore. You may or may not know the story. Myrtle had tuberculosis as a child. In her adulthood, she heard a lecture by E.B. Weeks, who said, “As a child of God, you do inherent sickness.” Myrtle took these words to heart and began to reverse the thoughts and beliefs she had held about her body for many, many years. She apologized to every organ for the words she had said and thought. She began to praise her body and all its organs. Slowly, slowly, slowly she began to heal until she was vibrant, healthy and whole. Charles, who had injured his leg as a child and walked with a limp, took notice of Myrtle’s healing. He too began to pray and affirm as Myrtle had done, and eventually his other leg grew until he could walk without a limp.
October at Unity is All About Healing. We now know that healing comes from being at ease in body, mind and Spirit — in other words, we have to experience wholeness.
This Sunday we’ll look healing our emotional state. Last Sunday we journeyed to wholeness of our mental state using the spiritual practice of forgiveness. Forgiveness is a good way to clean house for both our mental and emotional states.
Self-compassion is an antidote to emotional healing. I have come to this realization and have been immersing myself in self compassion, which leads to understanding and being kinder to myself. My prayer for you is that you will engage in self-compassion which will help alleviate self condemnation, judgement and criticism.

Let your Spirit be lifted up into Wholeness and Well-Being. I honor your path, your walk and your journey. May our paths connect in universal love.
