Spiritual healing is the gift of Gods love to humanity that brings about harmony, health, and well-being. Mediums that serve as spiritual healers render the greatest service offered in Spiritualism and exemplify the highest aspects of mediumship.
Spiritual healing has been part of Spiritualism since the beginning of the movement in the mid-1800s. There are many methods of healing today. Spiritual healing differs from other forms of healing in that the spiritual healer is attuned to his/her healing guides when he channels Gods healing force to a person in need. God is the source of all healing. In other healing modalities, including magnetic healing, the healer transmits his/her own healing energies to the recipient, often feeling depleted after the healing is completed. Harry Edwards was a well-known spiritual healer. He dedicated his life to this work and opened a healing sanctuary in Surrey, England. He was also one of the founders of the National Federation of Spiritual Healers (NFSH), an organization that to this day teaches healing courses of the highest standards.
Spiritual Healing is Gods healing power intelligently directed to the specific needs of the recipient. Since these needs are often unknown to the healer, it is reasonable to assume that the directing intelligence is a spirit.
Amazing cures have been known to occur through spiritual healing, some overtime and others instantaneously. In other cases, healing is not effective for reasons known only to God.
The purpose of spiritual healing is to help the person receiving it to reconnect with his or her spirit - our true self that continues beyond earthly life. Knowledge of our immortality inspires us to live rightly according to Gods laws for the benefit of all.
Silver Birch, the wise Spirit Teacher, said of spiritual healing:
The technique is really simple, though the effects are profound. You have a sufferer, a healer and you have the Great Spirit. All that happens is that divine power, part of the Great Spirit, part of the life-force, has to be transmitted through the healer's spiritual faculties to the sufferer's spirit body. This is in essence, the whole process. There is no secret, there is no magic; there is just the operation of natural law. The power of the Spirit is infinite.
Spiritual healing is practiced in all Spiritualist churches by the laying-on of hands or contact healing. For the person receiving it, it is a profound experience that brings about mental, emotional as well as physical relief; the feeling of receiving unconditional love and the sense of great inner peace. Healing mediums also dedicate time to sending absent or distant healing to people who are in need but unable to be present at the time.
Spiritualism fully supports the medical profession and considers spiritual healing as a complementary rather than a substitute treatment.
