A disease inside a body does not really enjoy being there: itís out of
place, a stranger in a strange land. Itís usually very willing to leave.
But, if you try to force it out without any consideration for it or its
purpose for being thereóthe message that it has to deliveróit fights
back, because its job isnít done.
In the tradition in which I was trained, healing is a win/win situation.
Itís finding the elements inside a system that cause dysfunction and
imbalance and communicating with them, developing a conversation between
the healer, the body parts, the disorder, and the spirit helpers that
Healing is balancing, so all the elements must be honored. You approach
the disease with an attitude of gratefulness, of wanting to pass on its
message. A disorder always has an inherent message, a reason why itís
there in the first place. If
that message can be passed on, the disorder is usually willing to leave.
There are two major indigenous traditions for psychic, hands-on healing
around the world: there is the win/win type and there is the warrior
type. Warrior-type healers literally go to war with the disorder. They
go into the patientís system, confront the disease, wrestle it,
overpower it, and force it out of the personís body. Usually the way
they force it out is to take at least some of the condition into
then wrestle it within themselves and expel it. This is not an easy way
to do healing and warrior-healers typically donít have long lives.
The other tradition is the one in which I was trained. Based on a
win/win philosophy, its approach is one of peace. I learned to approach
a disorder with respect and gratitude, providing some element of gain
and win for everything involved in the process of the healing. The
organs win something; the disease wins something; your patient wins
something; you win something. Everyone is happy.
In a win/win scenario, the disease willingly gives its message, its
information, to the healer and the client and leaves the body. Sometimes
it just downright rushes out of the body. No one has to use an excessive
amount of energy, so thereís no
danger and no harming.
As healers in the win/win tradition work, the energy that flows through
them is coming from an ultimate, endless source, the Creator; itís
coming through the heartcenter of the Mother Earth; itís coming from the
heart-center of the Sun; itís coming from the heart-center of our
Access to this extraordinary volume of complete life energy is through a
special initiatory ceremony (The Dance Of The Earth
Fire Serpent) or spontaneous energy system opening granted by the
This energy pours through the healerís body, like a conduit, and out
through the heart and handsóso youíre not taking energy from your own
being and giving it to someone else. Youíre utilizing an extremely large
energy source and directing it.
This particular method is much healthier for the healer.
