Definition of Healing
A general definition of healing is any positive action, word, or thought directed by one person to another with the intention of helping them. A caring touch, a kind word, attentive listening or a smile are all forms of healing. In medical care prescribing drugs, performing surgery or giving advice to benefit the patient, is therapeutic and is healing.
Spiritual healers work with this positive intention in a deliberate way. They will focus their attention to the highest source of Peace and Love in the universe that they can imagine. This is called attunement to the universal source and is similar to meditation. It is a state of heightened awareness – being totally present and at the same time having an attitude of detachment.
The healers then consciously direct this experience of union with the universal source through themselves to the patient. This is called channeling, where the experience of love is directed through the healer and is not from the healer him or herself. This type of healing with a patient present is sometimes called ‘laying on of hands’, although the hands are sometimes held a short distance away from the body. At the end of a healing session healers will consciously break the connection they have made with the patient and resume their normal everyday conscious state of being.
From an early age I sensed that I was a healer, I could feel sensations in my hands and had a natural attraction and affinity with animals. My parents told me that my grandfather was a lay healer.
I trained with Colin Fuller and Cindy Cox to become a Sussex Healer with Sussex Healers Association and a Reiki level 2 healer and later passed my H1 to become a SNU healer at Hastings Spiritualist Centre.
If you are in the Hastings or Bexhill area and would like to experience healing or learn to become a healer, get in touch with either Colin Fuller or Cindy Cox.
