But one day I happened to see a link to a phone interview with a healer. I don’t know why I clicked it. I guess I had nothing better to do. He talked about directing energy into your hands and to my surprise I knew what he was talking about.
During meditation I have for years experienced heightened energy levels. Only I didn’t know that was what it was. For me it was just a very pleasurable experience, pure ecstasy at times. I could feel the energy run through my whole body and light up every cell until the body was tingling and it felt as if I was hovering above the ground.
Anyway, I decided to try it out. Since I have had a chronic back problem for the past thirty (!) years, at first on and off but the last seven years have been a steady decline to the point where I couldn’t have a regular yoga practice or even sit for more than half an hour at a time. No doctor could fix it but an osteopath made it temporarily better.
I wasn’t even that focused since I didn’t really think it would work. But when I got dressed after my shower I could put my pants on without pain! This had not happened for YEARS!
As you can imagine, that caught my attention and I continued using my hands on and off. Sometimes I woke up with pain after sleeping on my stomach. I used my hands and the pain was gone after 30 minutes. I did this several times and the pain consistently subsided in the same way.
After about three weeks of doing this hands on thing, still not very focused but more and more convinced about its efficacy, I was ready to really test it. I decided to go out jogging. The last time I tried I had to be in bed for a week after.
I took it easy as always, running and walking alternately. It was lovely to be moving my body again! I used my hands before and after the run. I used my hands the next day. There was no pain! I could feel a little bit of stiffness (and a LOT of sore leg muscles) but I did not have to be in bed!
Yesterday, a week later, I went out for the second time and my back feels fabulous! I will continue to use my hands just in case. This is a miracle to me! I live without back pain!
I have no idea how it worked. But I know that it did. I couldn’t find a more obvious evidence than my back. It’s unquestionable. After I first noticed the effect on my back I tried to use my hands on other problems as well. It didn’t occur to me initially but gradually it became normal to think, oh, let me try my hands at this!
I have tried it for sinus headache, upset stomach, foot pain and other minor aches and pains. It always follows the same pattern: I use my hands for 5 to 10 minutes and then rest for a few minutes. After about 30 minutes the pain is gone. Sometimes I have to repeat it.
I still can’t believe it’s really true. But then I notice how great my back feels…
I will never call myself a healer and I will still go to the doctor – but only after using my hands. I haven’t really tried it on someone else (my family has been slightly reluctant to become my guinea pigs. But I did take away a bad head ache once.)
Healing is still not my main focus. But it has tangibly showed me how much power we really have - and how little we use it. It taught me how to direct my energy, which is an invaluable lesson. I’m sure my understanding about this will evolve even more. Gratitude!
There is no doubt in my mind that everyone can do this! If I could anyone can. I was NOT born with any occult gifts and I have never even wanted, or thought I could, heal anything. But I did.
