The True Power of Spiritual Healing

In my journey into enlightened awareness, Spirit has called me by many different names:  the Ambassador of Love; a Professor of Spirituality and a Spiritual Pathfinder – helping people find their path, empower themselves and fulfill their destiny.

My friend Troy White, who attended several of our Home Development Circles, observed that everyone would get a healing hug and named me the ‘Hugging Healer’, which caused some amusement amongst the Spirit Healing Doctors that work with me.

Troy knows a little about my younger, wilder years as a specialist in private investigations and once said to me: “Larry, you’ve gone from being a Spy to being Spirit” and, there is an element of truth to that statement, for everything I do in my life now has to do with the joy of spiritual healing, teaching and counselling.

There are many different kinds and levels of healing: the physical healing, the emotional healing, the mental healing, psychic or intuitive healing, the healing of the relationship for some with the Guides, with your Spirit-self and your Soul, and, most definitely the healing of the relationship between you and God.

It’s important to note that a Technician will treat symptoms and a Healer will treat symptoms plus the origin of the problem by helping you turn inward to resolve the outer problems.

In the words of my enlightened friend and mentor, Dr. J.W. Cruppe: “Most people are so busy looking for cures they forget to look within themselves”.

If you are doing research on the science of healing you will find that wherever there was a high level of spirituality there was also healing.

The Egyptians of long ago had knowledge that our western world is only just coming to!

And, not only the Egyptians; the Chinese of 4500 years ago probably knew as much about common illnesses as we know today.

In the Israel of 2000 years past, healers were not uncommon; Jesus and the Disciples didn’t start something new although it may be argued that they did it better.

A Healer is a channel for spiritual power; the better the channel, the more power can pass through. When we talk of Jesus we are speaking of one who was obviously capable of giving the fullest expression to the power of the spirit and, other things being equal, could bring about a swifter cure if a quick cure was what was best for the patient.

The gospels record 26 individual healings and 27 group healings by Jesus and 9 multiple healings by his Apostles. Jesus knew the way to invoke the healing power and taught his disciples and others the way to use it. Jesus said: “All these things I do ye shall do and more”.

Healers of the World…

The late Harry Edwards of Great Britain was acknowledged to be the greatest healer the world has seen since the time of Christ.

For over 40 years he devoted his life to the healing of the sick in body and mind, easing pain, correcting deformities, overcoming ill-conditions and generally bringing about restoration of health and happiness to countless thousands of sufferers the world over from the humblest of citizens to royalty… Harry Edwards was one of the first healers to be studied by a Doctor.

Olga Worrall, one of the most foremost Healers in the U.S.A. recalls one night when she had 9 M.D.’s in her home waiting to receive healing. Olga and her husband Ambrose were among America’s best studied early Healers.

My dear friend and inspiration, Tom Pilgrim, world famous healer of England was successful in the healing of Leukemia, polio, kidney disease, arthritis and many other terminal illnesses and diseases; yes, there is a cure.

Scientific Surveys of Healees…

Dr. Daniel J. Benor, a practicing Wholistic Psychiatrist and internationally recognized authority on the study of healing, reveals in his book Scientific Validation of a Healing Revolution, 124 scientific studies documenting that spiritual healing actually works on physical illnesses and emotional injuries.

Johannes Attevelt, at the State University of Utrecht in the Netherlands, performed two studies on 4,379 ‘healees’, who received spiritual healing treatment for a variety of ailments with a much improved total of 84%.

Heraldsson and Olafsson, from the National Registry in Iceland, surveyed 1000 individuals who received Spiritual Healing with a combined improvement of 91%.

Dr. John Cohen, a General Practitioner of Medicine in London, England referred 44 patients for Spiritual Healing, resulting in a combined improvement of 80%.

During a world-wide epidemic of Asian flu, Harry Edwards experimented on how to use healing as a preventative against contracting the virus. Edwards estimated his experiment covered 40,000 people. The epidemic was severe in Britain forcing many factories and schools to close and causing many deaths.

The result of his experiment was surprising. The number of people who had been infected was very few indeed – about a score [20 people] and even those were mild cases. None of Edward’s staff contracted the flu.

Healing, as a preventative to illness, has a vast unexplored potential and is probably the most neglected aspect of spiritual healing.

My enlightened friend Shirley Burroughs of Tulsa, Oklahoma, says: “My medicine is Spirit and I take a good dose of it every day!” 

The Truth about Spiritual Healing…

Just so you know what I mean by Spiritual Healing: it’s divine healing, in that, it comes from God and is his gift to all his children, regardless of race or creed.

Spiritual Healing is not ‘faith healing’; the term ‘faith healing’ implies that the success of the treatment depends on the person’s complete faith in the healer to overcome the problem.

If Spiritual Healing depended on the faith of a person for its outcome, then we wouldn’t see ‘babies’, who are incapable of demonstrating faith, respond to it. Nor would we see a healing take place with those whom help has been requested without their knowing about it, perhaps by a friend, relative or loved one; nor for those whose minds are unbalanced.

Whatever the nature of a particular illness may be, whether it be of the body or of the mind, Spiritual Healing can be a positive step.

“Healing is God’s plan to demonstrate, in this scientific age, that Man is a spiritual Being”

All true Spiritual Healing works in a very simple fashion. You are a spirit with a body and not a body with a spirit. When your body is ill or diseased and suffers as a result, it is due to the simple fact that harmony or wholeness, which ensures health, no longer obtains.

Not only are you spirit and body, you are also mind, the means through which Spirit registers itself and allows the body to function.

In Spiritual Healing, the power of the spirit, which emanates from its divine source, is transmitted to a Healer, who has the gift of healing, which is a spiritual one and through him the power is directed to the spirit of the sufferer.

It can be described very simply as from spirit, through spirit, to spirit. The whole exercise is a spiritual one.

The spirit, being the life force, will try to produce harmony where there was disharmony, some blockage, some interference, which means that the three aspects of mind, spirit and body are not working efficiently. When it succeeds, wholeness, which is health, is restored to the patient.

Now, whether this is done through the etheric, the spirit, the astral body or not, is a matter only of technique. But, what must happen is that the power of Spirit must recharge the spirit of the patient so that it can attain its true potential and enable harmony to be restored.

God’s Healing Ambassadors…

When God has something to be done he uses his healing ambassadors or angels to carry out the call of duty in his name. Every day we read or hear about more evidence to prove that life continues after death and that communication exists between life on this earth and that from the Realm of Spirit.

It’s upon this principle that Spiritual Healing has its foundations for where those who have passed on to the higher life, especially those who have devoted their earthly life to serving in all areas of the medical profession and have the continued desire to serve humanity, then they are able to do so through attunement with their chosen instruments on this physical world.

Every healing is a carefully thought out procedure administered in accordance with the individual’s personal needs. This requires intelligent direction.

When we see the so-called incurable made well it signifies that the healing intelligence has a greater knowledge than our doctors have at the present. If the healing intelligence is not human it can only come from Spirit. It’s these healing intelligences that we call our Spirit Doctors because that is what they are.

The Spirit Doctors are Spirit people who once lived on the earth as we live now but, on passing into the spirit life they still retain the divine motive, which is to take away stress, unhappiness, pain, sickness and suffering.

They gladly learn more about the spirit and physical laws and so, equipped with their higher learning, they are able to use healer-ship to heal the sick. That is why so many were Doctors in their earthly life.

We wouldn’t see the healing of the medically incurable were it not for the healing wisdom they maintain to correctly determine the cause of a disease and then to successfully master its ill-effects.

Contact Healing explained…

When we give healing to people we do so either through what we call Absent Healing or Contact Healing. In Contact Healing a Healer can, in fact, place his hands on or around the sick person to bring about healing assistance.

In other words, the Healer’s hands convey the healing energies to the sick one but the hands themselves do not possess Spirit Healing qualities.

The hands can express from the Healer’s mind the healing intention to soothe away pain, sickness or whatever the problem may be but it’s not always possible to know whether the hands are being used to convey healing energies from Spirit or simply the Healer’s intentions. Whatever it is, only good can arise and the time for the healing will come.

Absent Healing explained…

Now, Absent Healing is the ability to heal someone at a distance, any distance, as distance is not a barrier.

Absent Healing is an exact Spirit Science and its healing qualities are equal to Contact Healing and, at times, even greater.

Absent Healing takes place when the Healer receives information of the person’s needs, either in writing, a telephone call or an email request. Absent Healing is conducted through prayerful intercession only and it is effective for all ill conditions, physical and mental.

When someone who is ill writes or asks a Healer to heal a particular disease or affliction a state of attunement is set up between the patient and the Healer.

The Healer, in attunement with the Spirit Doctors, sends forth the request and the particulars to them; it’s like a mind picture of the individual patient’s condition and we have to accept the fact that the Spirit Doctor is able to reach the terminal point of the patient.

Consequently, there is a triangular link-up; sick person to Healer, Healer to Spirit Doctor and Spirit Doctor to sick person.

The Spirit Doctor will achieve his diagnosis through the spirit mind and body of the patient and then administer the correct treatment in the form of healing energies and influencing to bring about the desired state of change, which is the removal of the cause of disease and its symptoms.

It should be remembered that the sick person has a Spirit mind and a Spirit body. The Spirit Doctor is on the same sphere of existence as of these; in other words: the Spirit Realm and is thereby able to transform ‘Spirit Atomic Energies’ into their physical counterpart through the sick person’s Spirit-self.

The Healing Energies explained…

Thus, the making of a change in a patient results from the direction of law governed energies and forces to the problem area. Every patient is different. The Spirit Doctors must first make their diagnosis in order to know the character of the energies needed to bring about the beneficial change. For example: if the offending substance is calcium carbonate, cementing of a joint as with Arthritis, then the healing energy must be composed of the molecules which have the property of changing the state of the substance, thereby enabling the calcium carbonate to be taken away from the affected joint. Or, it could be a direction of a force-like heat to change the nature of the offending matter so that it can be removed.

Different healing processes are needed for different classifications of disease. A different kind of force or energy is needed for dispersing a cataract or a growth than is required for straightening a spinal curvature or for the healing of an unbalanced mind and the overcoming of an infectious disease.

Remember that every healing must be an individually planned treatment requiring a personal diagnosis by the Spirit Doctors to correctly treat the patient’s condition. Anyone can be healed! A question of a person’s faith is irrelevant. Even one who may be a complete sceptic in Spiritual Healing or an Agnostic can be healed.

There is no known human illness, be it physical or mental that cannot be helped in some way or another through Spiritual Healing. But, I want to make it very clear that Spiritual Healing is not a cure-all and, although a Healer is often asked to help when medically nothing more can be done for a person, Spiritual Healing should not be looked upon as a therapy to take the place of medical treatment.

Spiritual Healing is complementary to medicine and we Healers seek cooperation with the medical profession for whom we have the highest regard.

Is there a limitation to Spiritual Healing?

The only limitation to Spiritual Healing is that the healing must come within the range of natural laws and they are the laws of creation regulating birth, life itself and the passing from this earthly world into the Spirit world. Example: If a finger is amputated a new one cannot be grown. Or, if advanced age has brought senility the healing cannot restore juvenility.

If recovery is not to be within the scheme of things then a sick one can be assisted in other ways.

Death does not mean that healing has failed. It often happens that someone will ask for healing as a last resort, when all else has failed and when the Doctors have said that nothing more can be done.

When healing is given in such cases it helps to achieve two things: the first is the removal of unnecessary pain and suffering; the second blessing is that the spiritual bonds are strengthened. The healing directs the spirit and the sub-conscious away from the physical body, which it will shortly leave towards the higher spheres here the loved ones are waiting.

How long does healing take?

Many people ask: “How long does healing take?” and there is no definite answer to this question for everyone is different in their receptivity and response to the healing. Some are seen to react quickly to the healing force while others with related problems may take a lot longer to surrender their affliction. Therefore, the time needed for a recovery will depend upon the individual condition.

Another question that people ask is: “Will the healing process continue if the Healer stops treatment?” The answer is – yes, the healing process most definitely continues.

There are so many reported cures which have progressively taken place after only one healing session. I can’t imagine the Spirit Doctors not continuing to help a patient they have been treating simply because the person hasn’t been able to return for further healing sessions and the same applies to absent healing.

The nature of illness…

Medical authorities now confirm what Healers have known for a long time – that the primary cause of disease has its origin in mental stress, frustrations and soul-sicknesses. Such stresses are many and varied ranging from heavy business responsibilities to over-anxiety concerning the welfare of others, to suppressed or repressed emotions, which become the seed of pain; to lack of opportunity to express fully one’s motive in life; from sexual frustrations to worry over-financial difficulties.

Most of these causes lay within the inner emotional Soul-self or unconscious mind of the patient and for this reason they can only be healed on the same level as they exist – namely the Spirit level.

The Healers in Spirit are able to soothe, calm and remove the inner frustrations, thus inducing a more tranquil outlook. In this way the primary cause of so many ill conditions is seen to yield to the healing influence and so restore the sick one to excellent health and happier days.

For those of you who request healing assistance, either for yourself or for someone else, you can help the healing process by realizing that every individual is different, the disease or affliction is different and generally as the healing begins one feels an awareness of inner upliftment, a new state of calm and inner strength… with this the diminishing of the symptoms invariably follows.

The idea of getting well should be looked for and anticipated; naturally a positive attitude is always beneficial to the healing itself.

We can’t, of course, ever promise in advance that a healing will occur; at the same time we have learned never to limit the help that can be given through Spiritual Healing either.

Spirituality begins where physics ends…

A Healer should always remember that the act of healing is putting into operation a Spirit Science of a far more involved nature than the physical sciences known to man.

The act of healing itself is very simple but the administration of it is very complex. A Healer must have supreme confidence within themselves and the power of Spirit to heal to the fullest extent that is possible within the natural laws. When a Healer heals someone they are taking on the role of that person’s Spirit-self and being the internal voice that brings wholeness to the person.

A Healer must also take control of the energies by being the force that directs the molecules in one’s body to heal. As Spirit holds the energies in all the elements you could say Spirit is the energies, so, when a determination is made to be well, the energies always follow the thought, intention and choice to their end result.

The greatest joy of healing is when the Healer becomes aware of a feeling of intense pleasure, as he knows inwardly that the healing has been successful; it’s a feeling of ecstasy that pervades one’s whole Being. It’s no wonder us Healers feel that the gift of healing is ’divine’, is beyond price and cannot be commercialized.

The Gift of Healing…

Now, the gift of healing itself can be developed by those who have the virtues of generosity, empathy, compassion and a desire to render service to others in a  Spiritual sense.

People who have these qualities and who then inwardly desire to alleviate pain, sickness and unhappiness may well possess the healing potential, which only needs the development of the art of attunement with a source of healing, and after this to give the gift an opportunity to express itself.

The Art of Attunement…

When we speak of attunement we mean simply establishing a state of harmony or oneness with one’s Spirit-self and the Spirit Doctors; it’s the surrendering of the  Healer’s human conscious mind, thereby allowing his Spirit-Super-conscious mind to come into the ascendant. In this way Spirit becomes aware of our intentions and requests for healing and we, in turn, are able to receive intuitively, thought directives from Spirit to assist the healing purpose.

As the Healer gains experience and comes into a closer state of affinity with the ‘Healing Spirit Intelligences’ he becomes aware of how the betterment will come and is able to take an intelligent interest in the healing of disease.

Now, while the first objective is to heal the sick, it is most important for people to realize that the healing and comfort that is attained, draws attention to the message that all who live are spiritual Beings who must realize that so that they shall claim their heritage and fulfill their destiny.

As for the gift of healing itself…

Not only is it a great privilege but also a great responsibility, in that, a Healer is the instrument through which the divine power of life itself flows. The power that can perform what others attribute as miracles and replenish health where there was sickness and give hope where there was despair. That is a wonderful task to perform.

The unseen friends…

One final point: whether you realize it or not, whether you accept it or not; each one of you sitting here now has a number of Spirit Helpers, whom the church may call ‘the faithful departed’, what the bible may call ‘the unseen cloud of witnesses’ and what enlightened souls certainly call ‘Guides’. 

To me they are friends, family and together we co-operate to give help and healing.

People who are in the world of Spirit play a very important role in healing, teaching and counselling, even though it may be difficult for you to accept.

For the most part your Spirit Friends work with you and for you anonymously, unseen and unnoticed. Their commitment to you is forever and a day. Their love for you is even more; they wait for you, an eternal friend, standing by your side loving you.

Last, but not least, in 1975 I travelled to London, England to visit with Coral Polge, world renowned visionary artist, who used her clairvoyant abilities to transmit onto paper an image of the Spirit person with whom she was psychically in touch and I’d like to share with you now some of the illustrations she did for me. These images are on my website on the “About Larry” page.

To briefly summarize…

Remember, a healer does not heal of himself but is used as a channel, a medium, a pipeline to direct the healing power of spiritual energy.

Anyone can be healed! A question of a person’s faith is irrelevant. Anyone can benefit from Spiritual Healing.

Scientific evidence supports the value of Spiritual Healing, documenting proof that it works.
