In addition to using psychic powers to improve your creative abilities, you may be able to rely on your psychic awareness to heal. It’s possible that you have natural psychic healing gifts, and this chapter will help you figure out if that’s the case. You will also learn about different types of psychic healing and how a person’s aura may be read and even manipulated for the purpose of better health.
Psychic Healing and Diagnosis
Faith healers have been a part of many cultures for millennia. Witch doctors, shamans, and medicine men, among others, played important roles in the societies they lived in. Jesus Christ was hailed as a great healer.
As late as the nineteenth century, magnetism and other methods of alternative healing enjoyed popularity, but many of the ancient healing arts eventually gave way to modern medicine. In fact, with the rise of modern medicine, the popularity of the old way of healing almost disappeared.
Edgar Cayce and the Healing Arts Revival
It was Edgar Cayce who unwittingly became the focal point of the New Age movement, which swept the country during the latter part of the twentieth century. Cayce’s uncanny psychic ability to retrieve old healing remedies from the Akashic Records stored deep in the Universe changed the views of alternative medicine for many doubters.
While in a deep self-hypnotic trance, Cayce was able to scan a body with his mind and give a diagnosis based on what he saw. The subject did not even have to be in the same room for Cayce to be able to scan her body and give a diagnosis and recommend treatment for the affliction. The language that Cayce used in a trance was not the lingo or jargon of modern medicine. The treatments were given in terms that employed remedies long since forgotten. The diagnosis and treatments often focused on the body’s energy system.
If you are interested in getting more information on Edgar Cayce, you can go to the ARE Web site at www.edgarcayce.org. ARE is the Association for Research and Enlightenment located in Virginia Beach, Virginia. It was founded in 1931 and is still growing in membership today.
Many of you have Edgar Cayce’s potential to psychically read the health of others and help facilitate their healing. Each one of you will do it a little differently.
As you have already learned, your body is an energy grid. You have many energy centers, including your seven major chakras. When the energy is flowing evenly and all your centers are in balance, you are in tune mentally, physically, and spiritually with yourself and the Universal Energy. Your three minds are all working together in harmony with your Belief System and your guidance team. You are always connected to your third eye and completely immersed in a golden bubble of universal peace and love.
Needless to say, to stay in this situation all the time is impossible. You are always being thrown off balance by life’s resistances, both small and large. How soon you regain your balance and keep yourself in positive energy can have a direct outcome on your own wellness. When positive energy flow is blocked, negative energy can manifest itself through a weakness in your body, usually causing illness.
The flow of positive energy is what creates an energy field known as an aura. The more out of balance you are, the more your aura will be out of balance as well. That balance can be affected from moment to moment, and it is also influenced by the way you have taken care of yourself over a long period of time. The longer your aura remains unbalanced, the more susceptible you are to minor and major illnesses.
Just about everyone has the ability to sense auras one way or another. If you are not aware of how you do it, you may not be paying attention to the clues you are giving yourself. Look for signals from your unconscious and your Universal Mind, and pay attention to your guidance systems.
Reading an Aura
Each of you will read auras a little differently. Your mental makeup will help indicate how you will best experience an aura reading. If you have a strong visual sense, you may be able to see it. If you have a strong hearing sense, you may hear — either by voice or by other sounds — the energy of the aura. If you are sensitive to touch, you may feel an aura. If you have a strong sense of smell, you may smell the aura, and if you have a strong sense of taste, you may actually taste it. Some people may be able to use all of their senses, while others rely on two or more that combine to provide them with the image. A feeling may create a picture, or a smell may produce a feeling.
When you begin to pay attention to auras, make sure you have a strong sense of being grounded and secure. This way you will not absorb the energy that you are attempting to read.
Your first step is to identify how you read an aura. Once you’ve figured that out, the next step is to collect the information you receive. What does it mean? When you read someone’s aura, can you use the information to develop a model of his health? If so, can you compare what you read to how this person actually feels?
Ask yourself whether you can tell by the color of the aura, by white or golden energy, by sound, by feeling, by touch, by smell, or by taste? Can you dowse the individual’s energy field? Can you feel negative or positive energy, and how can you apply what you feel to the actual health of the person? How about taste and smell? At first, you may want to keep a record of your observations to help validate the information you are receiving.
Identify Healthy and Unhealthy Auras
The next step is to apply your knowledge of how you read an aura to how you can develop an understanding of what you are reading. As you get experience, you will notice aura patterns that can give a sense of what the auras mean. These patterns will help you produce mind models of what is a good positive healthy aura and a negative unhealthy one.
Healing Negative Energies
Once you have an understanding of positive and negative auras, you can begin to locate the specific areas of a person’s body that emit negative energy. You may even be able to determine through your five senses what the cause of the negative energy is and develop a healing model for the negative aura. In other words, you may be able to diagnose what someone’s negative aura means and then develop a model for her to change it if she chooses to.
Many people do not want to know anything that makes them feel responsible for someone else. They put up a defensive mental shield to block any such knowledge. If you have knowledge, don’t expect others to accept what you know. All you can do is drop hints and hope they discover them.
There are two specific ways that healing energy is transferred through you. It either comes in through you, or you let it flow out through you into the Universe. If you are a receiver, you are on the receiving end of someone else’s energy. This ability is enhanced by your mental makeup. Receivers who do not find an outlet for the energy they take in can take on the characteristics of that energy.
If you do not understand your ability to receive energy, you can be overwhelmed by it when you begin to develop your psychic abilities of reading and working with auras. Massage students can suddenly manifest the pain that a client is feeling. A beginning Reiki student may feel the client’s illness, whether mentally or physically. If you absorb the energy of the person you are trying to heal, that’s because you haven’t been able to work with your Belief System and have taken ownership of someone else’s negative energy.
The other type of healer sends a strong Universal Energy through herself from an external source and into the client’s body so that it flows over and removes the negative energy. The sender creates a stronger image of power, whereas the absorber is much more mellow. One potential problem for the projector is that the ego, and not the Universe, is responsible for the healing. If you take ownership of the power, you can totally change the healing energy into your own negative energy, which is not good for your clients or for you.
Develop a Model for Healing
What is going to be your strategy for healing? Can you develop a model in your mind of how you read someone’s energy? Which of the senses or combination of senses will you use — vision, hearing, feeling, taste, or smell? Can you create a negative model and from that a positive model for a change? Can you imagine helping transform the negative aura into a positive aura? Your image would be based on the way you understand the difference between negative and positive auras.
Are you a sender or a receiver? Your conscious mind may not know yet, but your unconscious and your Universal Mind do. You may feel the Universal Power in your fingers, or you may have the ability to snatch away the negative aura and deposit it out in the vast Universe. You may want to take classes in alternative healing, such as Reiki, or in ways of understanding auras to help you find and develop your gifts.
Whenever you work on yourself or someone else with healing energy, remember you are only doing something that is complementary to Western medicine. You are not offering a substitute for what a medical doctor would do.
You can always practice on yourself. Try slowly smoothing out your own aura, especially on days when you feel out of balance. Can you create an image of any negative energy that might be in you? If so, can you bring a positive image over the negative and feel yourself being filled with universal peace and love from a healing energy at the same time? You may be amazed at the positive effect that healing energy can have on you or on someone else.
Harness the Power of Universal Force
Now it’s time to focus on bringing the Universal Force through you as a healing energy. Try this with yourself first. When you work with others, you will not be able to put yourself in the same state of relaxation as you can when you are working with yourself. However, you will still be able to develop a strong connection to the Universal Power.
Take a deep breath and exhale slowly. Feel your body relaxing as you continue to breathe slowly in and out. When you are ready, focus on your third eye and let yourself feel the Universal Force of peaceful and loving healing energy begin to flow in through your third-eye chakra. You may feel this healing force as it starts to flow down through your body to your throat chakra. Let the healthy feeling of peace and love balance your throat center and continue on until all your energy centers are open and balanced with the peaceful and healing love of the Universal Force.
Feel your highest chakra, the crown center, open and balance, as you are aware of the total connection and protection of the Universal Force. You may ask your Belief that only the purest healing energy may flow through you to be passed on to the proper area of your or someone else’s physical, mental, or spiritual body. You may ask that this loving healing energy allow the person for whom it is intended to find his or her balance and be tuned by this universal healing energy.
Let the Energy Flow
Now that you are centered, grounded, and protected by universal love, you may begin allowing the healing energy to flow through the areas that need healing. Remember, do it your way, the way that you have already identified as using your most powerful image senses. If you are clairvoyant, see. If you are clairaudient, hear. If you are clairsentient, feel.
If you are strong in taste and smell imagery, use those senses to help amplify the universal healing energy of peace and love that is flowing through you. If you are a receiver, ask for the negative energy to be collected by your loving hands so that it can be sent out into the Universe to be healed with peace and love. The more you practice these concepts, adding the special things that work only for you, you will find yourself more and more in tune with the healing, peaceful, and loving energy of the Universe.
