Healing for the Healer
Subtle Energy work is just that. It’s subtle and therefore calls for subtlety of perception and translucency of personal physical-mental presence. The healer must let the light of love shine through his/her own human capacities . . . and more. The healer must BE the light that is shining through and not just a “channel” for the light.
How does one BE what one does not know from experience one is? By simply stepping back from identity with the physical channel and standing in the position of the Healer. I am Love offering the healing ray of light and not merely a channel for the healing current. My human capacity is a channel. I am the healing current.
In that stance of identity, the Healer’s heart and hands become radiant instruments for clear perception of what subtle patterns are at play in the energetic and physical bodies of the recipient. Transparency of mind, devoid of agenda of its own, opens a portal in consciousness for translucence of the physical channel. Translucence of the physical channel lets the light of love shine through. The light of love generates the subtle substance of pneumaplasm* that allows for luminosity, clear perception and appropriate ministration of the subtle healing currents.
PREPARING FOR A HEALING SESSION
Various practices are used by us all to prepare ourselves for an attunement healing session. There is none more effective than living in attunement with Love twenty-four-seven as a way of life.
I came upon a passage in Dr. Valerie Hunt’s** Infinite Mind – Science of the Human Vibrations of Consciousness (Malibu Publishing Co.) that speaks to this topic in depth. I’ll share the passage with you so as to preserve its clarity and allow you to discern for yourself its meaning and application in your life of service. So here it is.
A beautifully spiritual Jewish healer used meditation to cleanse herself before healing. Her frequent image of Jesus, while it seemed to hold great meaning, perturbed her because of her religious background. At first she adamantly rejected the Christ symbol. At one stage she sought professional help to understand. Finally she received the key: the Christ was a powerful symbol of love which could rule over death. With acceptance of the power of love, her capacities as a healer bloomed. At times when she entered a room, healing took place.
A psychologist, David McClelland, discovered a phenomenon now called “Mother Teresa’s effect.” When Harvard University students watched a British Broadcasting Corporation documentary of this remarkable nun, their immune systems produced more immunogloblin A, an antibody which fights colds. He concluded that despite some students’ dislike of the film, the filth of the surroundings or Mother Teresa’s techniques, the strength of her “tender, loving care” boosted their immune systems.
Actually, spiritual, mystic, and energy processes are not different. They refer to the different ways that the healer prepares himself, and to how he explains his results. In actuality, every fine healer uses all of these modes. Each expands his level of awareness into the mystical, raises his vibrations to the level where he can communicate with divine vibrations, experience lovingness and sense the healee’s vibrations as he creates a vibratory field.
During healing, the awareness state is not an everyday one; creating this state sometimes takes time. Therefore, it is understandable that some healers develop elaborate rituals to get themselves prepared; but probably these do not directly determine the results of the healing.
Some healers pray for divine guidance and ask that nothing from their field except the positive energy be allowed to enter the healee. These healers do not understand that nothing from their field can enter another unless the other allows it to do so — unless his field resonates with the healer’s. Therefore, the healer had best concentrate on radiating the purest and the highest vibrations, rather than dwelling upon such personal rituals.
The emotionally appealing humbleness of saying that one is only a channel, a conduit, or an inert circuit is also not helpful in a healing relationship. If your presence assists healing, you are more than a mechanical circuit; you are an important link; you are divine energies manifest. While you can be humble in view of the profound changes which take place, you are dynamically a part of what happens. To acknowledge it strengthens you. To be “merely a channel” weakens you.
Many healers diagnose disease by screening the body with both their hands and their mind. This can create a problem if it locks the healer into the old disease concept approach. In most instances, except possibly injury, the problem is first a field — and secondarily a tissue-disturbance. The overall field must be changed if there is to be more than just a change in symptoms. Likewise, the field carries both general and specific information about the illness. Some trained healers feel heat or cold in the area of pain, interpreting heat to mean inflammation and cold to be stagnation or lack of circulation. Prickly feelings are interpreted as regrowth. Others see forms in the energy field — blocks, breaks, colors and shapes. Over time, healers learn to associate these with symptoms and diagnoses. These are elaborately described in Barbara Brennan’s book, Hands of Light and Rosalyn Bruyere’s book, Wheels of Light.
The capacity to look into the body and see with the penetration of a microscope is wondrous, but may also seduce a healer into becoming involved with the material, spatial aspect of illness. This emphasizes the disease element rather than its source or the goal, health. There are healers who lightly record all these sensory impressions, not working on anyone in particular, but allowing their attention to culminate in the wisdom of knowing. This makes beginning healers insecure; but it offers the greatest security for the highly evolved.
There is a certain security afforded by the attunement server’s motto, “Let love radiate without concern for results.” While this motto may help us keep our mental hands off of the attunement process, it may also keep the practitioner locked into the limiting role of being the channel, or conduit, only of the healing current. For that matter, even the word “practitioner” could accomplish this limiting fixation in consciousness.
Be the light of your world. It’s what and who you ARE. No greater privilege do we have as Healers but to be who and what we are to our worlds of service. In this lies healing for the Healer.
We will continue along this vein of consideration of Healing for the Healer in the next blog post. Here’s a sampling of some of the wisdom we will share:
To remain in altered states for long periods of time without grounding oneself in the lower Earth vibrations does create real field problems, and disturbances in the alkaline-acid balance in the blood. (V. Hunt)
So, stay tuned. ‘Til then,
Be love . . . be loved.

* pneumaplasm is a word coined by Uranda, the founder and developer of the attunement service as taught by the Emissaries of Divine Light. It is a composite of two words: pneuma (spirit) and –plasm (substance) — spirit substance.
