Healing Body Mind And Spirit With Methods Involving The Life Force

These methods for healing body mind and spirit are similar in that they channel life force energy and can help you in wellness and recoveries from illnesses. (Also known as psychic healing, energy medicine, or spiritual healing).

Over the centuries, miraculous recoveries from illnesses have been associated with the work of God, saints, psychic healers, and shamans. Some life force energy methods for healing body mind and spirit have been found to help the speed and extent of recovery from serious illness and major surgery, and from the after effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. It complements conventional and natural medicine.

Depending on the circumstances, I describe these types of healing body mind and spirit and their forms of recovery with terms like, spiritual healing, faith healing, laying-on-of-hands, etc. What is common to all these energy medicine phenomena is that a person has recovered from illness or injury without the use of any known curative agents - whether physical or psychological.

The best person who can heal you is you. This is a law of nature. Your marvelous body is normally capable of healing itself. In certain situations the body needs help in this process. If your arm is broken, a doctor can set the break. Perhaps surgery will be necessary. But it is your body which ultimately performs the healing.

The job of the various approaches for healing body mind and spirit is to help your body in its own healing processes. Not only that, but many methods of alternative, non-traditional medicine can detect imbalances in the body’s natural flow which have not yet become a physical problem.

Helpful Ways Of Healing Body Mind And Spirit

The Life Force

Every living thing has about it a field of living energy. This energy is the Universal life force. The Star Wars movie term 'may the force be with you', whilst misdirected, is not as far out as it seems. All styles for healing body mind and spirit involve this force!

Exercise - Rub your hands together lightly for a second or so, now hold your hands about 1cm. (half inch) apart, palms facing each other.  You will feel a warmth between them which decreases with distance and increases as they are brought closer together.  This is the life force!

If you have learnt to see auras you may be able to perceive this energy. If you get two or more people (the more the better), standing in a circle, link hands palm to palm, but not actually touching, and you will feel the force in abundance. 

If one person "breaks the chain" by lifting their hand you will be left in no doubt that the force was real. A group linking of life force like this is termed a circle of power. If the total force is directed at one person of the group, they can beam this energy to someone who is in need of healing body mind and spirit.

Life Force Energy Methods Of Healing Body Mind And Spirit

Energy Flow

Energy flow therapies fall into two general categories of healing body mind and spirit.

1 - Those therapies which either do not touch you directly or touch you only lightly. This can include such things as:

  • Psychic Healing
  • Reiki
  • Crystal Healing
  • Chakra Balancing
  • Aura manipulation

2 - Harder forms which include:

  • Shiatzu
  • Acupuncture
  • Reflexology
  • Deep Tissue Therapy
  • Rolfing

In some instances, there may be a slight discomfort associated with some of the hard techniques.

Psychic Healing

I make a distinction between psychic healing and Reiki because the practitioners see their methods as being very different. My own take on the two is that psychic healers have a natural talent for channeling healing by the laying on of hands to concentrate the life force, even being able to absorb the condition into themselves. Reiki is a skill which can be taught to anyone. The process of opening to the Universal Life Energy and channeling this energy to the patient are covered in Reiki courses, which usually have three levels of ability and proficiency and then a master level.

Reiki is an ancient art for healing body mind and spirit that has been practiced by many cultures, and is not affiliated with any particular religion. It is another of the safe and effective techniques for healing body mind and spirit that use Universal Life Energy to help dissolve problems and return the body, mind, emotions and spirit to their natural perfect state. Literally translated, Rei-ki is a joins the words rei 霊: 'spirit' and ki 気: 'vital energy of life". The Reiki Healer channels Life Force Energy through the hands into the receiver's body and aura.

Unlike massage, there is no body manipulation - the energy is transferred simply by placing the hands lightly on the body in a sequence of positions lasting around 3-5 minutes each.

Reiki sessions can be as short as 5 minutes or as long as an hour or more, and can be given with the receiver in a seated position or lying down. Reiki can also be given through Distance Healing when the receiver is not physically present, as we are all connected by Universal Life Energy at the spiritual level.

You do not have to be ill to benefit from receiving Reiki energy, as it also provides limitless benefits of physical, mental and emotional balance as well as spiritual growth for both the healer and the receiver. During the Reiki healing session it is common for either the healer and/or the receiver to experience heat, tingling, deep peace, or feelings ranging from very subtle to very obvious.


Shiatsu is a form of Oriental Therapy evolved from a 5000 years old tradition of healing body mind and spirit. It utilizes a combination of pressure and assisted-stretching techniques, some of which are common to other therapies, such as Massage, Physiotherapy, Acupressure, Osteopathy, Lymphatic Drainage, Do-in and others.

The Shiatsu treatment:

  • stimulates the circulation and the flow of lymphatic fluid
  • releases toxins and deep seated tensions from the muscles
  • stimulates the hormonal system and the immune system
  • and acts on the autonomic nervous system

Thus allowing the recipient to relax deeply and to get in touch with own healing power.


Reflexology or zone therapy, is the practice of stimulating particular points on the feet, hands, or ears, which represent different organs and areas of the body. The most common form is foot reflexology.

Practitioners believe the foot to be divided into a number of reflex zones corresponding to all parts of the body, and that applying pressure to tight or sensitive areas of a person's foot will stimulate the corresponding body part and cause it to begin healing itself.

In reflexology, it is believed that there is a "vital energy" that is circulating between organs of the human body, that penetrates into every living cell. Whenever this energy is blocked, the corresponding organ will be affected. Therefore, if someone has a problem in a particular organ, a reflexologist will press or massage the corresponding reflex zone or zones until sensitivity is felt.

This sensitivity is claimed to originate from the deposition of crystals in the reflex zone and, with massage, these crystalline structures can be broken down and the pain relieved.  Simultaneously, the pressure applied to the reflex zones by the reflexologist is claimed to pass through the nerves to dissipate energy blocks.

The Late: Richi Who

I first met 'Richi Who' (AKA Richard Philippe) in 1986 when I had moved to Magnetic Island in Queensland. Richi was leading a mystical, monkish, life at the time. He was living alone while caretaking the solitary house at Arthur Bay for its owner, the late, Sid Ward.

Richi became an integral part of my own spiritual initiation and was to become my psychic guide. His late-night mystic sessions on Arthur Bay filled my life with wonder while opening doors to other worlds.  

Richi later became the first psychic reader I retained at my Ancient Wisdom Center and we stayed friends ever since.  Sadly Richi Who passed away in 2013 while on holiday in Europe. Happily he has since reconnected and is now one of my highly evidential spirit guides.

Comments About These Methods Of Healing Body Mind And Spirit

My Intuitive Reiki InformationMy visualization of Reiki flowing out (Except the lights are brighter in my case)

My Intuitive Reiki Information - by Manajiwinp (Michigan)

From my Experience, to do the type of psychic healing known as Reiki, all you have to do is:

  1. Relax (any form of relaxation, like breathing, drinking, or listening to music etc.)
  2. Put your hands over or on the person/area you’re healing.
  3. To start it up you can rub your hands together. (When I do this I can feel heat and little vibrations in my hand)
  4. To help the ability you can grab some stones and/or crystals. And visualization/imagination also helps.
  5. You will probably feel the Reiki energy getting hot, or cold depending on what color/temperature you want it to be.
  6. Visualize the light flowing outward from your hand onto the affected area, and ask if they can feel it to make sure. I visualize little lights or stars flowing outward, it could be like little snowflakes flowing out or little shocking lights that paralyze the negatively hurt area. (May be hot or cold) 
  7. Research aura colors and understand what they're used for. When I practiced on my Mother’s wrist I imagined a light blue color, similar to ice. She said it felt like it was crackling cold. I visualized the blue energy freezing off the bad/negative energy in where it hurt, somewhat like ice melting.
  8. Also research Reiki symbols, and draw or visualize them on your palm. They can be effective, depending how you use them. (ex. Cho Ku Ray = The Power symbol, this one gives you energy thus making it more effective on your hands.)

I hope this helps everyone out!

What can I use for spiritual cleansing?

I would like to give some insight on the importance of a technique for healing body mind and spirit known as spiritual cleansing. We all know the importance of physical cleansing and scenting the body, the same should be done spiritually at least once per week and maybe twice depending on the company you keep. Here is a simple but powerful spiritual cleansing.

  • What you will need for Spiritual Cleansing: 7 Day white candle. Sea Salt. Olive Oil. 
  • Instructions for Spiritual Cleansing: Cleanse and dress candle with olive oil, say prayer for clearing energy, light and allow to bun out. Take a shower. After shower run a bath and put about a handful of sea salt in water. Stay in bath for no less than 15 minutes and say prays that resonant with you. After the bath put olive oil on the body and sleep in white bed clothes. Doing this at least once a week will keep your energy clear and create a field around you that will repel negativity.
