Sometimes people feel they need to suspend reason in order to accept what are commonly called miracles. But according to a Harvard Medical School instructor, “Miracles only contradict what we know of nature at this point in time.” In her recent blog, “Are There Laws Behind Spontaneous Remission,” Valerie Minard shares how one woman was cured of cancer by understanding the laws of Divine Love. Valerie’s article was first published in MyCentralNewJersey.
In 2008,Claire Haser was diagnosed with cancer and told it would be fatal. Although in the past, she had used traditional medicine, she decided to skip the recommended surgery and chemotherapy. Instead, she decided that what she really needed to do was “change her relationship with fear.” In the process, she did some deep soul searching. Five years later, when she went back to the doctor for some unrelated tests, she discovered that she was cancer-free.
Some people may call this a miracle. Others, a fluke. Doctors call it spontaneous remission. But, according to Dr. Jeffrey Rediger, an instructor at Harvard Medical School who also holds a Master’s Degree in Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary, there is a common thread. “In my studies of more than 100 people with medical evidence for recovery from incurable illness,” says Rediger, “the similarity in their paths suggests to me identifiable mental and spiritual principles associated with their recoveries….Miracles only contradict what we know of nature at this point in time.” But he believes that they may be consistent with mental and spiritual laws we have yet to study more thoroughly.
