Playful Healing

How beautiful is distance healing—nothing in the way between you and what’s intended. No responsibility, really. You’re not actually doing anything. You’re just watching it happen through you. What a gift that is.

I wish more people would come to this work. They wouldn’t even have to do it full time. They could just be closet healers, surreptitiously healing the planet and her inhabitants. They could keep their day jobs and be healing superheroes by night.

One of the things I love best about distance healing is that I don’t have to dress up for it. I can be in my pajamas, lying on a massage table or sitting up in meditation in a comfortable chair, snug as a bug in a rug. I could even wear a cape and mask if I wanted.

It’s a great job for a lazy person or one with limited energy!

It’s a lot of fun, too. Have you ever seen a little baby discover his hand for the first time? Doesn’t that look like it’s the most fascinating thing in the world? A baby will hold up his beautiful little hand and gaze at it in complete wonder. That’s what healing is like for me. My hands move where they’re led and I get to watch the show.

It is exactly that: fascinating—which Webster’s defines as very interesting, delightful, charming and captivating. And it helps you to remain child-like, if only for a while.

So just how does distance healing work? I might see something on the news that affects me deeply and I can sit down, think about a person (or animal) in a particular news story, raise my hands a bit, and the healing begins. It comes through me and I don’t have to direct it (and couldn’t if I tried).

If someone asks for a healing directly, I begin thinking about them, I put my attention on my hands and feel the energy there, and then I simply get out of the way and allow what happens to happen.

At first it was the most bizarre thing, to see my hands move in ways they’d never moved before. And at times the energy was so powerful it was hard to just let it flow. Sometimes it felt like I was trying to hold back the tide, and of course, that’s exhausting. It happens much more easily, more playfully, less strenuously, if I just let it overtake me. And rather than drain my energy, it helps me feel stronger.

It is a magnetic presence in me. It is wonder-full. And miracles sometimes happen.

It’s also the gift that keeps on giving. A person’s healing will continue to unfold and every time I facilitate a healing, I too, am healed—the proverbial win-win situation.

If you find the possibility of distance healing intriguing, pick up the book by Dr. Eric Pearl, The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself. You may find, as have many before you, that the healing energy enters you through the written word. Play with it and see where it takes you. Trust in your own abilities. Be curious and enjoy the discovery. And just think of the possibilities!
