What is Spiritual Healing?

Spiritual Healing is the power of personal energy from an individual who recognizes and accepts the presence of Deity and transfers that energy to another. It can be performed by several methods including hands-on, hands-off and distant practices.

Within the field of Spiritual healing, the practices and methods are non-denominational and ecumenical, meaning it does not matter by which name you call your Supreme Power or your religious background. The only requirement is a belief in Deity, a Higher Power or wholeness with the universe.

Spiritual or Energy Healing has been practiced throughout the entire existence of mankind and continues to grow in faith and popularity. Where once doctors only believed in the power of science and medicine, has been shifting into the reality and acceptance of the mind and metaphysical powers everyone possesses. It is a science within itself and has become more widely studied the world over than any individual field of science.

Spiritual Healing is a way to neutralize and destroy inner mental patterns which manifest into disorder, disease and mental distress within our mind and body.

How can we accept healing through energy and spirituality?

To live in truth and harmony with ourselves and the world around us. By realizing and accepting that the truth is our bodies are made of energy. If you were to study your hand under a microscope, and continue to expand your field of vision, you would dive beyond skin, blood vessels, blood cells, molecules, atoms and ultimately arrive at ENERGY. Our entire body is energy. And so is the world, planets, solar systems, galaxies and the universe. Everything is energy. In short, we are a field of energy connected to the infinite vastness or universal energy.

As stated in the Chinese I Ching (or Book of Changes), “Even a single passion still lurking in the heart has power to obscure reason.” Which means even the tiniest negative thought held onto the mind or heart will always create discord within the purest harmonies within the individual. We are meant to live in harmony between our hearts and consciousness to accept the Great Universal Spirit flowing within all of us.
