*As the pandemic continues to run its course, hands-on healing has been suspended during the divine service but a short group meditation is shared in its place.
As an alternative, we are offering a 30 minute healing meditation by Zoom on Wednesdays at 2:00pm EST. If you’d like to join us, please send a request by email to email@example.com and we’ll send you the details to join.
We are also offering Trance Healing Sessions by zoom on the 2nd Monday of each month. The fee is a donation to the Spiritualist Society of Burlington. To schedule an appointment, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
When there is no pandemic, and our divine service includes hands-on healing……..
Spiritual healing is the healing of the spirit body to manifest in the physical body. It complements conventional medicine by treating the whole person – mind, body and spirit – to help restore harmony and promote good health. Spiritual healers act as a conduit for healing energy, helping to relax the body, release tensions and stimulate self-healing. The energy being channelled through the worker comes from the divine source which is available to all people, regardless of race, religion or belief. The benefits of healing can be felt on many levels, not just the physical, and the effects can be profound.
If you would like a spiritual healing you may:
- Attend a Sunday service, a portion of which is dedicated to healing.
- Book an appointment for trance healing offered on the second Monday of each month from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. by emailing us at: email@example.com
- Attend the Journey of Healing online meditation by emailing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the zoom link. Once your name is on the list, a reminder will be sent to you each week.
The healing affirmation is recited as part of a Sunday service, immediately preceding spiritual healing. Between the stanzas there is a short period of quiet contemplation to think of those not present who need healing. The affirmation prepares the minds of the congregation to focus healing thoughts.
I ask the Great unseen healing force to remove all obstructions from my mind and body and to restore me to perfect health. I ask this in all sincerity and honesty and I will do my part.
I ask this Great unseen healing force to help both present and absent ones who are in need of help and to restore them to perfect health. I put my trust in the Love and Power of God.
Questions about Spiritual Healing
Q. What is a spiritual healer?
A spiritual healer is a person who allows him- or herself to be used as a channel for the flow of healing energy. This can be done for the benefit of self and others.
Q. What is the source of healing?
All healing comes from God. A spiritual healer acts as a channel for, not the source of, this healing energy. Even if the healer works in conscious cooperation with others, such as healing guides in spirit, all parties work together as a unified channel for God’s healing.
Q. Who can become a healing channel?
Anyone! We are Spirit and God is Spirit. If one’s intent is to help and to work with God’s healing energy, that person can become a healing channel. From time to time SSB offers a healing course for those interested in learning spiritual healing.
Q. Can spiritual healing work in cooperation with other forms of healing?
Yes; one form of healing does not interfere with any other, and you should feel free to explore any healing options open to you that resonate with you. Spiritual/energy healing is not intended to replace professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment – rather it should work in conjunction with and in addition to, other approaches.
Q. How does prayer relate to spiritual healing?
When we pray, we talk with and express our wishes to God. In healing, prayer acknowledges that there is a power beyond the self at work, and helps focus the healing effort. Thus, prayer and healing go hand-in-hand. The real power of prayer lies in the intent and emotion behind the prayer. When we pray for healing, we should trust and allow God to manifest for that person what is most needed, rather than pray for a specific outcome we think best. Prayer and meditation are opposite sides of the same coin – prayer is speaking to God; meditation is listening for God’s response.
