Spiritual Healer - Can a Spiritual Healer Help

What is spiritual healing and what does a spiritual healer do. These are the two questions that this article will answer in the most basic terms. This is the first in a series of articles discussing this topic that will lead to an e-book and several instructional videos.

There are many ideas being held on what is spiritual healing. Ideas that portray healing as psychic surgery, falling down and speaking in tongues or laying on of hands to name but a few.

But spiritual healing is much more then the "side show" theater that we are generally used to seeing. It is a deep and fundamental change in how we view ourselves, the world and God. Spiritual healing lifts a person above themselves so that they are able to see everything from a new perspective. Do not be fooled by the theater of "psychic" types, spiritual growth is an intimate and very quiet pursuit.

Spiritual healing shows itself in the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual change in the individual. These changes can be profound and noticeable to everybody or they can be subtle and only felt by the person making the changes. Going from physical sickness to a state of recovery is a part of spiritual awakening. Finding peace in emotional calmness is another aspect of change that is seen as a person goes through the process of spiritual healing.

The most dramatic part of the process is when one is able to have a clearer vision of God and how we relate to God and to each other. This feeling of unity and brotherhood redefines a persons life and their direction in terms of career, interpersonal relationships and spiritual growth.

A healer is a facilitator of this process. A spiritual healer has the ability to "see" the person as a whole greater then the sum of their parts. The healers job is to help remove blocks to an individuals growth.

How a spiritual guide does their job varies from healer to healer. Most accomplished healers have the ability to see the blocks that are causing the problems in the lives of their clients. The blocks can be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. Through a combination of talking to provide awareness and energy work the client is brought from a state of dis-ease to one of more balance.

A spiritual healer may only see a client once or twice or like a trusted advisor play a part is an individuals life for many years. A healers job is to maintain the growth process for as long as a client want to implement change.

In future articles I will discuss the many roles of a spiritual healer and the many aspects of the healing process.
