In "A Course in Miracles," Jesus teaches us that the use of what he calls "magic" (anything in form that feels helpful, such as medicine) can be helpful in reducing extreme fear. This is ultimately so that the mind can feel relaxed and open enough to choose the miracle instead. As you continue to practice and follow intuitive prompts, you find it becomes easier to choose the miracle right away and thus let go of the old concepts which were the cause of sickness to begin with . . .
