17 DAYS OF SPIRITUAL WISDOM
Healing yourself and others
You too can heal!
There are many different ways of healing; the system used in The Aetherius Society devised by Dr. George King is simple but effective.
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. But, in 1976 when Dr. King published his ground-breaking book You Too Can Heal, this was highly controversial – even in certain spiritual healing circles where healing was wrongly regarded as the gift of the few – rather than the birthright of all.
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 skeptic to receive healing and benefit from it.
Spiritual healing can help people in many different ways – sometimes unexpected. Healing may completely cure someone – or may not, but may instead help them to deal with the condition they have and to become more positive. It is extremely rare for someone to receive 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. Miraculous instantaneous cures are rare – but not unknown, and we should always be open to this possibility.
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.
The method of contact healing used in The Aetherius Society has been named “The King Technique”. It is so straightforward that, together with a close study of either You Too Can Heal, or The Magic of Healing, it can be learnt in a workshop in a single day. The technique involves cleansing the patient’s aura and sending spiritual energy into some of their major chakras and the area of discomfort by visualization and physical contact. Each treatment takes about half an hour.
Absent healing is basically sending spiritual energy to someone by praying for them to get better according to their karmic pattern, and may also involve the chanting of mantra. It is important to always visualize the patient in good health when doing this, since this will enhance the healing process.
Dr. King also devised an easy-to-learn self-healing technique based on similar principles to contact healing. Dr. King has also written about the basic principles of colour therapy.
Seek medical advice
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. Spiritual healers should always advise their patients of this, and should of course never guarantee a cure.
Miracles are not performed by God for man, but by man for God.
Dr. George King
Blessed are they who heal in these days of great pain and suffering…
Blessed are the ones who lay their hands upon the fevered brow of their brothers, knowing that their request will be answered. Knowing that great power will flow through them, like water through a river course.
