The ability to heal yourself or to heal another is an amazing, miraculous gift; and the ability to heal is a gift we all have.
As Susanna and Puran Bair put it in their wonderful book Living from the Heart:
It would be a mistake to think that healers are specially gifted people. Healing is a natural power that everyone has innately by virtue of their breath. Some people have developed their concentration, their breath, and the openness of the channel from the heart to the hand so that they can give the natural healing effect of breath to others. (p. 205)
In this same section of the book there is a brilliant discussion of the different ways to use breath, for example:
- to work with another person to speed their healing
- to charge your hands with magnetism, so that your hands can better direct the energy of your breath
- to absorb excess energy from a part of the body, and
- to add energy where there is too little.
Do you know someone who is in need of healing at this time?
Take a moment to send them love from your heart. If you want to do more, I recommend reading Living from the Heart for a great discussion of how to heal others using Heart Rhythm Meditation.
I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please share a comment below.
