Cultivation to the mind is as necessary as food to the body.
Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BC), Roman Statesman, Author
When I started exploring the energy healing in 1987 I tended to pick up other people´s dysfunctional energy - they would go away free from their symptoms (pain, depression etc.) while I would stay back with those problems, which were not caused by anything in myself and my life. Then I would spend another hour or so healing myself from those issues.
To be able to explore the energy processes as close as possible as a participant action researcher, I did not want to use light and other energy protection that I heard most energy healers apply when working with patients, to be shielded from difficult energies.
I focused my mind instead on supporting other people´s inherent healing forces and that way stopped picking up their dysfunctional energy.
Healing vs. Positive Thoughts
There is never a crisis without a blessing.
Healing thoughts are different from ‘positive’ thinking. So called ‘positive’ thoughts are not effective in healing if they are used to deny the perception of ‘negative’ reality. That is why many people unfortunately cannot heal themselves, no matter how much they want it.
‘Positive’ thoughts can even be dis-easing in case they have a manipulative component, e.g. “I want that person to heal in such and such way.”
Trusting the wisdom of the unknown in each person’s healing endowment is essential for effective healing facilitation (it eliminates the healer´s ego trip and even unconscious power games).
Healing Intention and Spirituality
It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), American Poet
My healing intention consists in staying focused on the healing transformation of any energy blockages, while unconditionally supporting the person’s Pristine Self and its inherent holistic healing forces.
I also call mentally for the appropriate universal healing forces to reinforce them. It is the web of Life that does the healing, while I facilitate it as appropriate.
My patients´ feedback indicates that integral energy healing typically induces spontaneous healing shifts in aspects of their personality and areas of their lives beyond the ones that they originally experienced as an issue and on which I would have focused my attention during our work (see an example in my article Identity, Suicidality and Smoking).
I believe that those bonuses are due both to the energy blueprint being a network rather than a sum of individual pieces, and also due to my intention to facilitate healing for my patients´ highest wellbeing, which I do not try to define.
Stay focussed on your Divine Self. Grow faith by faith. That is Power.
Rishaan Raphael, Australian Spiritual Healer
People´s own whole Being and the Universal Intelligence, or the Divine Creative system Know what each person´s true highest wellbeing is at any given time.
That is one of the basic tenets of my spirituality which evolved out of my energy reading and healing work, that indicated in no uncertain terms on countless occasions that the essence of the integral energy healing is spiritual. It is not necessary though that the patient be spiritual to benefit from such healing.

Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
Howard Thurman (189-1981), American Author, Philosopher
I consider mental hygiene – unconditionally holding the overall healing intention in one’s mind, even if one is not aware of how it may happen – to be the highest personal responsibility at this stage of human development on the Planet.
Appropriate action is necessary and needs to be upheld and reinforced by mental hygiene.
Mentally setting up the healing energy blueprint makes such action much easier and more effective.
That can telepathically induce powerful healing ripples and synchronicity (‘coincidences’) and constructive shifts in individual and collective consciousness, and in what becomes manifested in material reality.
