What Is Spiritual Healing?
Spiritual Healing is essentially all types of energy and vibrational healing. Rather
than using drugs or pills as in convention medicine, the healer
energy and touch
a form of channeling of higher vibrational
energies or manipulation of the same. It is based on the principal that
we are more than just a physical body, and that most ill health begins
in our energy field and manifests eventually as disease if left
Examples of spiritual or energy healing include hands on, contact
healing, distant healing, pranic healing, crystal healing,
reiki, qigong, therapeutic touch, esoteric healing and so on. The
usually offering support to the one who wishes to be healed, who needs
to maintain a positive attitude to get the most from it. Spiritual
healers help the patient to heal themself, by allowing higher forms of
energy to treat their body, or removing blocks to energy flow.
Let's look at a quick rundown of various forms of spiritual healing and
how these modalities work.
Reiki was developed by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. Its practitioners
use a type of hands-on healing
where they place the hands on or
over the body and transfer healing energy from their palms into the
patient. The practitioners have received an attunement from a Reiki
master which attunes them to the highest frequency of healing energy.
This energy, upon entering the body, travels to the place where most
healing is needed.
Qigong is practiced in order to retain balance in the physical and
energy bodies. Its a system of coordinated body posture and movement,
along with breathing, and meditation that stimulates good health and
spirituality. Also used in martial arts training. It is rooted in
, philosophy, and
martial arts, and is said to balance the chi or qi energy that is
needed for good health. It is also good for relaxation and general body
toning and exercise.
TT is a healing practice performed by practitioners trained to be
sensitive to the receiver's energy field that surrounds the body; this
means that, like reiki, no touching is necessarily required.
Practitioners say they are able to feel the state of the patient's
energy field and then manipulate or help in the healing of it, by
removing blockages and so on. This is performed intuitively, so the
practitioner must possess some skill in sensing the chi energy as it
flows through the energy body.
Shiatsu is a form of Japanese bodywork based on traditional Chinese
medicine. It utilises
finger pressure as well as massaging with
thumbs, feet and palms. It works with the bodies meridians in the same
way as acupressure and is about bringing the chi flow in the body back
Pranic Healing, developed by Filipino philanthropist, Choa Kok Sui, is
yet another healing modality that works with prana or chi energy to
heal ailments in the body. It is like yoga and acupuncture because it
treats the energy field which in turn affects the physical body.
This form of healing uses living crystals and stones to bring specific
energies to the body that promote healing or imbue the body and mind
with certain traits. Crystals resonate with different chakras (energy
wheels) that link the physical with the etheric body. They can help
open the chakras and balance the entire system. They also transmute
lower energy into higher vibrational energy, increasing health.
Crystals can then be placed on different parts of the body or simply
worn in jewelry or carried on the body; as long as the crystal is
within the energy body.
Many people tend to develop their own kinds of energy healing, going
with what is natural for them. However, an energy healer should never
make promises as to specific healing, as no healer can ever guarantee a
quick fix. Be wary of healers who make grandiose claims such as disease
eradication, or claim to have done this in the past, especially as
these claims are always unproven. Energy healing can be very hit and
miss with some treatments making no measurable difference. By
experimenting, one can find out what works for them.
Unfortunately, there are healers who pray on the sick to charge huge
fees and no relief is ever found. Just be aware that most alternative
healing is a way to help the patient find more health
but can never guarantee
a return to complete health. Some healers act unprofessionally and
pressure their clients to sign up for more and more treatments. Others
take a payment then might disappear for weeks on end, refusing to
answer their phone. Just remember, you are not necessarily dealing with
a professional when you contact a spiritual healer. Some are very good and yet some
aren't. Anyone can claim to be a healer and take money, so do be
