Spiritual healing is the gift of God's love to humanity, bringing harmony, health, and well-being. Mediums that serve as spiritual healers render the most incredible 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 their healing guides when he channels God's healing force to a person in need. God is the source of all healing. In other healing modalities, including magnetic healing, the healer transmits their 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 still teaches healing courses of the highest standards.
Spiritual Healing is God's healing power intelligently directed to the recipient's specific needs. 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 over time and others instantaneously. But unfortunately, in other cases, healing is ineffective for reasons known only to God.
The purpose of spiritual healing is to help the person receiving it reconnect with their Spirit - our true self that continues beyond earthly life. Knowledge of our immortality inspires us to live rightly according to God's laws for the benefit of all.
Silver Birch, the wise Spirit Teacher, said of spiritual healing:
The technique is straightforward, though the effects are profound. You have a sufferer, a healer, and 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 and 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, and physical relief; the feeling of receiving unconditional love and a sense of great inner peace. Healing mediums also dedicate time to sending absent or distant healing to people in need but unable to be present at the time.
Spiritualism fully supports the medical profession and considers spiritual healing complementary rather than a substitute treatment.
