How To Heal By Spirit Power

"If you are impressed with the idea that you possess healing power, you

can easily experiment upon your suffering friends or acquaintances. If

you are mediumistic, and spirits desire to develop you for the healing

work, you will readily feel that you are impressed what to do. Your

hands will be guided to the proper position, and you will spontaneously

make the requisite passes. Magnetic healing has really nothing to do

with massage, the induction of sleep, or with any form of mesmerism or

hypnotism. The healing medium should centre his thought and interest

solely and wholly with the idea of effecting a cure. He will need to be

sympathetic, but hopeful. Do not let your patient think about his

ailments, but arouse his thought and engage his attention upon some

outside subject. Make him feel comfortable, and lead him to expect good

results; to do this you must be affirmative and confident. Unless you

are impressed, or are controlled, to do otherwise, sit in front and take

hold of the hands of the sufferer for a time, then make gentle, short,

downward passes over the part affected, and conclude with long sweeping

passes from head to foot without contact. For local affections, point

your hands at or just touch the spot with your finger tips, or make

direct horizontal or slightly downward movements, as if you were

throwing something at him. A warm, comfortable room is favorable to

magnetizing, and a genial mental atmosphere, created by cheerful and

kindly minds in the operator and persons present, will contribute

largely to the success of the treatment. You will do well to act upon

your impressions and make the passes in whatever way you feel impelled

or compelled. If you operate under spirit guidance, you will be

impressed more or less clearly how to proceed in each case. In all

probability you may sympathetically 'take on,' and be affected by, the

symptoms of the disease from which the patient suffers, and in that way

be able to form an accurate diagnosis of the case; but you must guard

against exhaustion, and should always 'throw off' from yourself the

influence that you have received, and wash your hands thoroughly after

each treatment."
