"The spiritual healer seeks to strike at the root of disease and its underlying causes in consciousness. When these negative conditions in mind are removed by metaphysical treatment, marvelous things can and do happen in the physical body. All spiritual healing systems rest upon this basic truth whatever their particular vocabulary and individual approach may be."

"When God is revealed - man is healed."


Both quotes are from the New Text of Spiritual Philosophy and Religion by Dr. B. J. Fitzgerald


I believe God and Universal Energy is the spark in all healing.

Candy will be conducting a Tui Na (Chinese Meridian Massage) workshop this afternoon from 1:00 until 3:00.  the fee is $15. for one person or $25. for two.
     One of Tui Na's advantages over simple massage is its ability to focus on specific problems, especially chronic pain associated with the muscles, joints, and skeletal system.  "Tui Na It is a therapeutic extension of western massage, with an emphasis on restoring and balancing energy" Dr. Ayleen Augustine described the Tui Na work as amazing!


What is Spiritual Healing?
                         by Rev. Doti Boon

     As members of the Universal Church of the Master, we affirm that prophecy and healing are divine attributes proven through mediumship.
     A spiritual healer acts as a channel to convey God's healing energies to others, whether for physical, emotional, mental or spiritual healing. This occurs through the "laying on of hands".
     Spiritual healing, or spirit healing, is not new. It is something that has been around for thousands of years. It is recognized by many sacred texts, including New Testament scriptures, and is a tenet of ancient and modern religions.
     No healing ever comes just from the healer. It is the healing force and energies coming from "spirit" or God via the medium of the healer, which effect healing in a patient. In bringing about the healing, spirit beings combine their own healing forces with the spiritualist healer and is absorbed by the recipient.
     These healers may be Guides, or people who were doctors or healers in their last incarnation and wish to continue this healing work. Reiki is a good example of this type of "hands on" healing; since the hands are often the focal point through which healing occurs; even though healing energies can be passed from the entire body. Many of us have felt this energy when being given a great hug.
     When you do hands on healing you are aware of an endless supply of healing energy flowing through you. Because you act as a conduit between God's healing energies and the patient. In some cases you may feel your hands directed to certain places on the patient's body where healing can best be effected.
     Don't forget to start each session by surrounding yourself with White Light! Make sure you do a meditation or prayer before you commence to keep yourself grounded and protected.
     When you are receiving a spiritual healing - clear your mind of all negative thinking. If you are sitting - place your feet flat on the floor and your hands open on your lap for a positive flow of energy. If you are on a massage table - be comfortable, relax and allow the energy to flow from your head down through your body; letting the positive energies come in through your crown chakra and exit through your feet.
     Remember, the belief in your body's ability to heal is important in bringing about healing. Thought is the basis of all actions. Our thoughts have an impact on every cell, for either health or disease.
     It is important - whether you are the healer or the client that you release all anger, fear, hatred, jealousy and despair as these depress vital energy. Faith, hope, joy, compassion, and kindness stimulate essential life forces and promote healing.

You really can do it.
by Rev. Corky Whitacre CCHt


     If you find yourself falling off the wagon, or struggling with all your might to stay on it, reduce the challenge, but stay the course. For instance, maybe you are harassing yourself about exercising (rather, not exercising). Trying to make yourself exercise 30 minutes a day. Reduce the challenge by exercising in 30 second increments. Just start.

     I had a client that I gave 15 minute AA chips for not drinking...all I asked was that he not drink for 15 minutes. That was doable for him, thinking of staying sober for a whole 30 days was impossible. He needed to get started, have an obtainable goal, create the image of success, imagine it, and repeat.

     Any regimen will serve you well. Repetition, even in very small doses, builds capacity. Any positive change you can make will be hugely satisfying - and a source of inspiration to make the next one.
