A friend who’s done Spiritual Healing for decades told me about the different levels of training he had. He first had to sense problems through feeling heat in his hands when they hovered over an afflicted area. Next was to see the issues clairvoyantly, with images that came into his mind. Then came learning to feel others’ pains in his own body.
For him, the final step was the toughest: learning to sense people’s problems through a direct inner knowing. He found it so hard to trust that in himself, he nearly gave up altogether. Then came the following experience:
“One evening, when things were a bit slow at the healing sanctuary, I sat next to a man who had been sitting at the edge of the room for most of the evening. He ignored me and carried on inspecting his fingernails.
‘Have you come for healing?’ I asked, thinking that perhaps he was too embarrassed to come forward.
‘Me?’ he laughed, ‘No way. I’m with the missus. She’s come for some. I don’t need it. I think you’re all a load of charlatans. I wouldn’t waste my time with you.’
So I began to chat with him about football. He relaxed, and started discussing the local team. As he talked, I became convinced that he did have a serious physical problem. I said, ‘I know you said there’s nothing wrong with you, but I have a strong feeling that there is.’
He shrugged, ‘Oh, it’s nothing really. I just have no feeling in my right knee.’ He pinched it hard. ‘See, it’s dead. Don’t feel a thing. Not felt anything there for ages.’
‘Okay’, I said, ‘I’ll tell you what I’ll do, but just say so if you object. I’ll put my fingers together like this.’ I showed him my fingers formed into a small circle, the tips touching each other. ‘I’ll put them close to your knee. I won’t even touch you, and we’ll carry on talking about football.’
After we’d carried on chatting for a few minutes, I suddenly had a clear realisation.
‘You know, the problem you have is not with your knee. It originates in your hip. So I’m just going to shift my hand up to your hip.’
‘That’s funny,’ he said, ‘I went to the hospital today and they said just that. The problem is in the hip.’
I didn’t say so, but I also knew that the problem came from stress he’d been through about his son.
Shortly after this, his wife returned to him, ready to leave. He pinched his knee again and said, ‘See. It’s still dead. You’re all charlatans.’ He took his wife by the hand and marched out.
I thought that would be the last we’d hear of him – but next morning he phoned us. ‘This morning, when I woke, I pinched my knee and, for the first time for years, it hurt! I’ve got feeling back in my knee!’
This was not only a turning point for the skeptical man – it was also a big moment for my friend. It gave him the confirmation he needed that his healing skills were real, and he was on the right path.
