This form of healing, which is not to be confused with spiritualism, uses a holistic approach, helping a person to return to the harmony of body, mind and spirit. The channeling of energies by the healer re-energizes the patient to deal with illness or injury. Healing often helps with the speed and extent of recovery from serious illness and major surgery and from the effects of treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy. It complements allopathic and alternative medicine.
Healers see the body, mind and spirit as one interdependent unit and believe all three must work in harmony to maintain positive health. Any problem, from a broken leg to depression needs the power of healing to restore the balance of the whole person. Some feel that sickness often starts in the mind, or at the deeper level of the spirit, and it is often here that healing begins. The channel is usually a person, whom we call a healer, and the healing energy is usually transferred to the client through the healer’s hands. The healing does not come from the healer, but through him/her.
When a healer lays his hand the client he/she acts as a conductor or channel for the healing energy, which he/she believes, has the “intelligence” to go where it is needed. Within Spiritual Healing there are specific healing techniques for each level of the human energy field. For a spiritual healer, healing includes sensing, cleansing, balancing, repairing and charging the field. The healing energy moves through all levels of this field, those that correspond not only to the client’s physical, emotional and mental nature, but to his/her spiritual nature and basic beliefs in reality.
