Spiritual Healing – Testing the Healing Techniques – Do They Really Work?
Over the years that I have studied and practiced spiritual healing, I have seen and experienced many healings and health improvements along the way which I attribute to spiritual healing. I reached this conclusion very scientifically over a growing period of time by testing the healing techniques to determine if they really work.
I had read several times that spiritual healing brings healing and relief from pain and suffering, but I never thought of using spiritual healing until one day when I injured my hand. I felt this might be a good time to give it a try to see if it would help my hand to heal. I had a large, deep wound in my hand that normally would take several weeks to heal. I felt this would be a good test to see how fast the wound would heal if I used spiritual healing.
I also decided that the best way to keep track of my spiritual healing efforts and results would be to create a journal, logging in what my spiritual healing work consisted of, how often I did it, and what I did. I would also keep track of my healing progress (or lack of progress). I felt the journaling was important because it would give me an objective, unbiased, concrete accounting of events which I could refer to at will. This accounting could help me objectively decide if spiritual healing did or did not help to bring healing. I felt trying to commit my results to memory would be unreliable since most of us tend to feel differently about things on different days, depending on circumstances and events.
I sat down to begin spiritual healing work to heal my hand. I wasn’t sure I was doing it right, but I followed the instructions the best that I could. I intently gazed at my hand as I did the Hanuman Chalisa, hoping to see some sort of magical healing take place, and hoped that I would actually see the wound heal and disappear from my hand.
After fifteen minutes of doing spiritual healing work, much to my disappointment, I did not see nor feel any change in my hand. The wound was still there and it still hurt.
Since I was working to heal a wound rather than an illness, I read that I should do the spiritual work frequently – several times a day, as often as possible. Each time I did my spiritual work on the first day, I was expecting some type of miraculous healing, but that didn’t happen. When I went to bed that night, I still couldn’t see any change in the appearance of the wound, and I still had considerable pain. I fell asleep that night doing spiritual work to heal my hand.
Much to my surprise, the following morning, when I looked at the wound, it was much smaller. There was less swelling, the skin was normal around the wound instead of being red, the scabby area itself looked smaller, and the pain was gone. As the day progressed, I continued with the spiritual work and was amazed to note that the wound was rapidly getting smaller.
On the second night of my experiment, I again fell asleep doing spiritual work for the complete healing of my hand and when I woke up, there was only a slightly perceptible wound area. In amazement I looked at my hand wondering how this could be possible for a large wound to heal so fast, and leave no visible scar. I logged all of this information into my journal and I concluded that the spiritual healing technique I used did in fact heal my hand and that my first experiment ended in success because I realized complete healing of the wound I was trying to heal in a record period of time.
Just as I was basking in achievement, I began to wonder if the healing I realized might have been coincidental to the spiritual healing work. Would it have healed anyway since I did wash the wound, treated it with an over-the-counter antibacterial medication, and kept it bandaged most of the time to keep the wound clean?
Now I was faced with the question of whether or not my hand would have healed without the spiritual healing work. What if the spiritual healing work I did really had no affect at all in my healing? I decided the only way to be sure was to run another test. Since I didn’t have any other healing need at the time I decided to try a spiritual healing technique on my dog.
My dog injured one of her hind legs. The veterinarian told me that my dog would never be able to walk again on that leg due to the nature of the injury. The vet said that the muscles in my dog’s leg would atrophy (shrink in size) over time, and my dog would spend the rest of her life limping on three legs.
