We are very pleased to welcome Chrissie Blaze to
SoulfulLiving.com as our newest monthly columnist!
Each month, Chrissie will share one of her Eight Steps
to Inner Fitness from her book, "Workout for the Soul."
Step 8 - Healing: Nourishment for the Soul
Healing, like prayer, is a vitally important part of
your Workout for the Soul, because the
soul’s expression is an outpouring of the spiritual
energy we call "Love." Sending healing to a
person you never met, and may not even like, is one of
the highest aspects of love or compassion to which we
can aspire. When we are capable of a higher aspect of
love than purely personal love, we feel for the trials
and suffering of mankind and want to help. It is at this
point that we can begin to obtain our highest spiritual
Healing is one of the highest expressions of our
soul. Healing knows no prejudice or boundaries; it knows
no barriers of race, color or creed, no barriers of time
or distance. We can heal our families in the same room,
just as easily as we can heal a stranger across the
world. It makes no difference; the keys to healing are
our desire to do so and an effective, safe technique.
Through diligently practicing breathing exercises,
affirmations, visualizations and prayers I have outlined
during previous issues of SoulfulLiving.com, you are now
better equipped to perform the important work of service
to others. This is what our soul craves; to live a noble
and compassionate life that reaches far beyond
ourselves, outwards to mankind as a whole.
The Way of Enlightenment Today
The yogis and sages of the past gained enlightenment
away from the crowds in remote caves in the Himalayas.
Now enlightenment can be attained by the so-called
"ordinary" person amidst the hustle and bustle
of everyday life. This is because the need for
spiritual, selfless action–or service to others–is
now more urgent than ever before, as we enter the
crucial and difficult transition from one Age to
another. One of the simplest and most effective ways to
give service is by sending absent healing–or healing
over a distance. In this way because our motive is to
help others, we will automatically advance ourselves
through the law of action and reaction–karma.
It is now widely known that much of our sickness is
psychosomatic. This is caused by stress, anxiety and
negative thought patterns. Western medicine believes
that the cause of disease is bacteria and germs, and
that we have to remove them to have good health; healers
regard things differently. The healer sees the bacteria
and germs as an effect of the stress, anxiety and
negative patterns. These latter psychological states
affect the aura, cause blockages in the psychic centers,
and may eventually break down the immune system; the
result is disease or imbalance.
Disease often starts in the aura of the person, the
subtle egg-shaped envelope that encases our physical
body. Our wrong thought and action causes blockages in
the aura and psychic centers, which in turn reflects
back onto the physical body as ill health. Through a
method called Kirlian photography, actual photographs
have been taken of the aura. It has been shown through
these Kirlian photographs that disease appears in our
subtle or energy bodies before it manifests onto the
When we are channels for healing power, this flows
through us into the aura and psychic centers of the
person we are healing. This pure, vibrant energy of Love
brings balance and harmony to the patient and this in
turn reflects onto his or her physical body so that
better health results.
The Interrelationship of Life
Healing teaches that we are all interrelated. Once we
understand this, we also realize that we can do no harm
to anyone else without harming ourselves. The next
logical step is to realize that we should not only do no
harm but that we should consciously do the opposite –
good. One way to "do good" is to radiate love.
The problem is that we are conditioned to think that
love is a feeling and an emotion rather than energy.
Love is not just something we fall into, it is energy
that we can use to improve lives; an energy that has
different qualities or levels of manifestation.
Absent Healing is just an extension of our urge to
reach out and touch. When we hear that someone we love
across the other side of the world is sick and
suffering, the natural urge is to want to help, to reach
out and touch that person. Well, through Absent Healing,
you can do just that. You can touch others, not just
physically with your hands, but you can touch them even
more profoundly with your love. Through using Absent
Healing you can send the higher aspects of love out
across the ethers of space to another soul anywhere in
We are all virtually radiators of spiritual energy.
This is what we are designed to be. Why else would we
have the higher psychic centers that we have? If we were
just here to live, breathe, eat, mate, be successful in
business and make money, we would not need the higher
psychic centers. Although these are closed or
dysfunctional in many people our purpose is to open them
fully and consciously and so become the noble,
compassionate, wise souls that we really are. Through
healing and prayer you will start to open and activate
the higher psychic centers and because of this you are
then firmly on the spiritual path.
Dr. George King, my Spiritual Master, and
Founder/President of The Aetherius Society, devised a
powerful, yet simple absent healing technique that I
have used for many years and which is included in my Workout
for the Soul. Below is a simplified version of this
technique for you to use. Remember, a minute’s
practice is worth a whole lot of theory.
Absent Healing Technique
1. Raise your hands up, with your palms facing
outwards in the prayer position as described in last
month’s column, and say out loud with as much feeling
and love as you can, your healing prayer. By saying this
prayer aloud, you will start to activate the healing
2. Now visualize a pure, vibrant white light
radiating from your Heart Center, in front of your
breastbone, and from the psychic centers in the palms of
your hands. Really try and visualize this light until
you feel it flowing through you, and fill this
visualization with love. Some people feel it is a
tingling sensation in their hands, but do not worry
about the feeling, just concentrate on sending it out.
Do not even worry if you cannot visualize it as a white
light, this may take time and practice. All you need to
do is to keep visualizing that you are sending out
healing power and it will happen. You will definitely be
radiating out spiritual power through healing even
though initially you may not feel or see it.
3. Then say aloud the name of the person to whom you
wish to send healing. The spiritual energy will then
flow to that person to bring about balance within that
person’s aura, which will reflect back into their
physical body, bringing balance, harmony and ease.
Whatever you do, do not visualize a sick person. Even if
you know the person is seriously ill, do not visualize
them as such, but instead visualize just the white light
leaving you and flowing out to them. If you have the
time in your healing service, and you know the person
you are sending healing to, you can visualize that
person being absolutely filled with pure vibrant white
4. Let the power continue to flow through you, your
hands and your heart center for a minute or two. Imagine
it as a stream of energy. Realize that this healing
power is an aspect of true Love and try and feel this
love and compassion filling you and flowing through you.
5. Then say aloud the name of any other person to
whom you may wish to send healing, and repeat the above
6. When you have finished, close your service with
another simple prayer. In this prayer, thank the Creator
for the opportunity you have had of being a channel for
healing power and also request that, if it be the
Creator’s will, they might be healed. It is important
to state your intent in your prayers, as discussed
7. Detach from your healing and carry on with your
