Today in what is often termed the “mind body spirit” or “New Age” movement, it is taken for granted that spiritual healing is a skill which can be taught and learnt.
What can spiritual healing treat?
All conditions can be treated by spiritual healing – but not all people. Some people are more receptive than others to this treatment, due to a number of factors such as karma and mental outlook. As such the results of healing can vary a great deal. If the patient has faith in the technique and the healer, this will of course aid the healing process, but is not necessary; this is not faith healing as practiced in some religions – it is based instead on spiritual energy. This being the case, it is possible for a sceptic to receive healing and benefit from it.
Who can benefit?
Spiritual healing can help people in many different ways – sometimes unexpected. Healing may help them to deal with the condition they have and to become more positive. It is extremely rare for someone to receive spiritual healing and then report no improvement afterwards whatsoever, and indeed many people report that they feel a great deal better, often where other treatments have failed, and we should always be open to this possibility.
What are the benefits?
As well as benefiting others, the more spiritual healing we give, the more we will develop spiritually – and psychically. And the more we develop spiritually and psychically, the better healers we will become.
Spiritual healing is a complementary therapy, not an alternative therapy. This means that it is meant to be used in addition to appropriate conventional medical help, not instead of it.
