What’s more important the source or the result? The question is, what matters the most? Is it the source of healing or the result?
Healing is an ongoing process of the body. When it functions well, we are healthy. But everyone needs some help at one time or another. Our attitude affects the ability of the body to heal. People with a positive attitude recover from illness or injury faster than people who have a negative attitude. When we anticipate being well, it has a positive effect on our immune system and the ability of the body to heal.
Spiritual Healers and the Source of Healing
To some people, the source is more important than the result. This doesn’t make sense, but sometimes people will place religious mythology above medical remedies. What’s more important to you, the source, or the healing result? Does the process or the or religious pedigree matter more than the healing itself? Similarly, does the degree of success depend more on the process or experience of the healer? Is one “brand” or type of healing system superior to another? If so, why?
There are stories of spiritual healers in all cultures. They heal mind, body and soul. These are people who can expedite the healing process in some way. They come from all backgrounds. Some use techniques or processes, while others are just natural healers.
There are claims of miraculous recoveries in every culture. All we know for sure is the body has the capacity to heal. And it seems some people can facilitate the healing process. So, it doesn’t seem to matter what background the process comes from. All that seems to matter to the person in need is that they get healed.
The religious pedigree of the healing process is very important to some. This is because their paradigm has special authority. So, it becomes a matter of religious prejudice. In fact, some people shun the use of modern medical remedies. They make pilgrimages and travel to exotic places in search of the source of healing. Contending that the prayer from their belief system is the only acceptable source. But other people don’t think any of this matters at all. They just want to be healed. Hence, how you feel about this depends on your beliefs. What do you think?
Healing Processes for Your Spiritual Toolbox
We teach several systems of physical healing. These include (but are not limited to) Reiki, Shiatsu, and Pejut. The first two Reiki and Shiatsu are healing processes from Japan. The last one, Pejut, is Indonesian. There are common elements to these systems. They all use a process for the collection and direction of energy to facilitate healing. Meditation is a healing.
These techniques are just a few of the spiritual technologies we think every spiritual explorer needs. Besides, you never know when you need healing or need to help heal someone else. In fact, we’ve seen people who aren’t initially interested in becoming spiritual healers. They are surprised to learn they have a natural ability in this area.
There are also needs for emotional and spiritual healing. For that reason, many people have sought out the wisdom of an experienced Shaman. In fact, the Shamanic Journey is another spiritual technology we teach and highly recommend. You don’t have to be a Shaman. It is something everyone can learn. Sometimes you can identify and remedy the issues yourself. Other times you may need the assistance of an experienced healer.
We recommend that if you need any type of healing; you seek qualified medical care. The above-mentioned methods can in most cases be used in conjunction with modern medical care.
Spiritual technologies are tools for exploring consciousness. They result from generations of research by cultures around the world. These processes stand up to the test of science. They are repeatable and measurable. They do not require belief in religious doctrine. So, everyone who can follow a process can use them. We call the practice of these processes spiritual exploration.
You can list these tools in several ways. Some fall into more than one group. We like this simple method.
- Tools to enhance critical thinking. This study of basic logical reasoning along with spotting logical fallacies and logical axioms. Then we also use a comparative analysis. This is a step-by-step way of comparing beliefs between different worldviews. Above all, these tools will help sharpen your ability to discern fact from fiction.
- The Enneagram Personality Profile. This is mostly an analytical tool. It provides insight into the mechanisms of ego, personality, and instinct.
- Seated meditation is often the heart of your spiritual practice. This includes a range from Beginning Meditation and Mindfulness Meditation through Japa Meditation and more advanced Siddhis of Patanjali.
- Moving meditation helps us strengthen the mind-body connection. It is also an important key to our health and wellness. This progression includes several methods of energy collection, such as Forest Bathing, Qigong, and Tai Chi.
- Pathways for expanding and exploring awareness. This progression includes a range of processes from lucid dreaming, the Shamanic Journey and Guided Meditation to third-eye awakening and soul memory awareness. Practical tools to guide your path, a spiritual journal, and automatic writing.
- Healing practices are the final group. This branch includes Pe Jet, Reiki, and Shiatsu. Self-care is also a part of this group and is vital to our overall health and wellness.
Many people possess a gift for helping others. Don’t don’t know they are the source of healing energy. They are spiritual healers who have yet to fully awaken their gifts.
