Healing and Spirituality

So many people on the spiritual path are into taking classes on healing and they are so diverse: hypnotherapy, past life therapy, rebirthing, seeing a guru or a teacher, etc.

Is it necessary? My answer is “no” and I think that I am the proof of it. Way before I was aware of any of these spiritual ways, I had an enlightening experience. Maybe I’m backwards? My life seems to prove it sometimes, but let me explain: all it takes is stopping. Stopping, reflecting for one second and bang —  it happens. Your life is changed forever. No pastor, minister, guru, rabbi, vegetarian regimen or specific diets, church or anything.

Let me repeat. All it takes is to stop and breathe. No special breathing technique either. All it takes is you being conscious of a desire to change. It’s just a twist in the brain, that’s all!

What do you do next? Well, since your life is now changed forever, you keep on going with your life. You learn — you evolve, I guess. You keep on observing life as it is offered you. Nothing matters and everything matters.

For my part, after my first experiences, my hands went on fire and then I found out that I could participate in people’s healings. Since I had no idea what was going on, I took different classes such as Reiki, Jin Chi, spiritual healing, etc. through different metaphysical groups. Was it necessary? I now recognise that no, it wasn’t, but I had to figure out how it worked. Even though I enjoyed the experience of learning different techniques, I must say that after some 16 years, I still don’t know how it works!

I have a friend who travels the world, going to multiple groups and teachers to find the best healing ways for himself, never to be satisfied and never to have enough. We humans make things so complicated. You can go round and round in circles when the answer is right in front of you, right where you are.

You can perfect yourself as an idea, conceptually, but perfection is impossible to achieve since perfection is impossible to pin-point. What is perfection? In the dictionary, it says: ” The state or quality of being or becoming perfect” or ” the highest or most nearly perfect degree of a quality or trait.” Is this vague, or what?

Even though there might be a stage in one’s life for one to realize that programing is running rampage with them, causing dissatisfaction, one can never attain perfection. Perfection is itself a preprogrammed concept either learned from our parents, school, religion, or society. Within our imperfections, everything is perfect!

Therefore, no healing or therapy or anything great is necessary. It’s just that “twist in the brain.” That’s all is takes. The rest is just called life — exploring, living, and being, and having awareness, intuition, and consciousness. It just IS and That is ALL.

So why do I do hands-on healing on occasion? Well, it makes me think. Maybe it’s about that twist in the brain, that message that might come out of me, designed just for that person to hear …
