Author Poet Philosopher

It is reasonable to question. It is also reasonable to get an answer. When you get the answer it is reasonable to question the answers validity. Never will the question be worthy of an answer if the validity of that answer is never questioned. It is called obtaining truth - The Cockney Bard

After over 20 years of healing with the hands here are my observations.

Question Does healing with hands really work? What can it help with?

Answer Most certainly it does. It has helped all kinds of disease and illness. Major and minor.

Question How does it work?

Answer No one truly knows. Some say its an energy that comes through the hands and goes into the subject. I know it works but cannot be certain how, other than that its all supposition how it does. People have felt during healing varying things from heat, cold, feeling sleepy, the sensation of being operated on, tingling etc.

Question Does it work on everyone?

Answer No. Some get absolutely miraculous results, some small benefit and others none at all. Two people could have the same complaint, one gets better the other doesn't.

Question Why is that?

Answer Absolutely no idea. No one truly knows. Some will have their own ideas but like its source, it is only speculation, no one truly knows.

Question Could it simply be a placebo effect as medical professionals and those of a sceptical nature would claim?

Answer No. Here is why. Animals benefit from healing too and they cannot possibly have the placebo effect. Also one example I can give was the healing given to a french lady recorded on video. She couldn't speak a word of english. The effects of the healing are clearly remarkable and there is video evidence and written testament to the healing. As for placebo it will undoubtedly play a role with some healing, on some people, that is obvious. To to say it is the answer is clearly wrong.

Question Why is it not accepted by Doctors and the medical profession?

Answer Some do accept it but the general accepted view is not positive. Doctors spend years training and the healers don't. The Doctors reasonably understand the human body. Healers generally don't. Doctors prescibe drugs. Healers don't. Drugs make considerble money. If everyone healed with their hands no serious money is made by the drugs companies. I think that is a fair point.

Question Who can do the healing? Do you need expert training?

Answer In my humble opinion I believe everyone can heal. I believe it is an innate abilty all human beings have. I don't think it is special or a gift, other than to say some will be more adapt at it than others. I also don't think you can empower anyone with healing ability. As for expert training? No one can possibly be an expert on something no one truly understands. You of course need to learn the basics and how to deal with people and their expectation of the healing. Most importantly you cannot claim to cure anyone. I am proof it is a natural ability as I have had no training, read no books or had no understanding of what it is. Years of experience have taught me right from wrong, but there is no specific way to heal, or some extra super energy some claim they tap into. Some even claim to empower others with the healing, this is absolute nonsense!

Question Is Reiki different from what you call natural healing?

Answer In my humble opinion it works exactly the same, only there are symbols used in Reiki. I believe they claim it is a different type of energy, but quite simply they cannot prove that and to me the clue is in the word Reiki (universal energy). No one understands how the healing truly works, but many claim they do. I believe they also claim they can empower others with the healing, this as I have said before is complete nonsense.

Question What do think of Spiritualism and their healing?

Answer Healing courses that last for months & years. probationers, qualifications for this, that etc and an in the box approach doesn't appeal much to me. What they don't explain when they do the teaching is it doesn't take long to teach someone the basics and that you don't have to be a spiritualist for any of the work, whether that be mediumship or healing. IMHO a lot of nonsense is spoken about the difference between psychic and medium. 20 years of my work has taught me its all the same.

Question Do you ever think hand healing will become accepted as normal?

Answer I would like to say 'yes' but throughout history examples of healing have been documented and proven, but still it is not accepted. All you can do like the sixth sense is demonstrate how natural it is and let people decide for themselves. Let people think, reason and hopefully come to the right conclusion. If it is proven it is fact and if it is fact, it exists. It is that simple.

Question Could Science test the healing abilities?

Answer Of course and they can be replicated. People shouldn't place to much emphasis of the value of the Scientist, the Doctor, Psychologist, Psychiatrist etc when it comes to things such as healing, the sixth sense etc because you must remember these things mean big change in their thought process, what they have learnt. It's a big change for them and the world as a whole. To change what is now is a big step but one people will make through their own questioning. That is all you need to do is question. Don't just accept what you are told, have been taught or read in a book!
