The following seven steps seem to be common to all types of psychic
healing. Not every psychic healer is observed or is aware of doing
all seven steps as some of the steps may be implied for that individual.
Make a special connection between yourself and the Space Time
Unit (STU) described in Reference 1. This can be done in many
ways (e.g., saying a prayer to your God, surrounding yourself
with white light, invoking the universal source of energy, etc.).
In so doing, you recognize that the healing is not done by you
but that you are an agent or tool to facilitate the healing process.
In healing, there is no room for ego (i.e., you do not do the
Achieve a relaxed, special, or psychic state. While there are
some people who have mastered the ability to induce a psychic
state, there are others who may find it necessary to clear the
mind of all conscious thoughts (e.g., such as meditation). Some
use a hypnotic key wherein they accomplish the induction into
the proper state by simply saying a word to themselves or imaging
Make the connection between yourself and the person to be healed.
Again this can be done in many ways. Some people put their hands
on the person (e.g., laying on of hands). Others simply move their
hands around the person without touching (e.g., aura smoothing).
Still others make only a mental connection. This can be done whether
the person is in the same room or at some remote place. An example
is a church prayer group who prays to God for help in healing
someone who may be in a hospital or many miles away. Frequently
that person is miraculously helped. Most psychic healers use their
hands in some manner to make the connection. Some people believe
that the palms of the hands are transmitters and receivers of
some form of "energy." Whatever the healer believes
works, will work! In my opinion, the use of the hands helps make
the necessary mental connection between the healer and the healee.
In effect you have made the connection between the STU and the
healee using yourself as the link. A useful analogy (Reference
2) is to think of a giant telephone network with the central switching
system in the center. Then think of each individual as a telephone
with a line connecting everyone to each other as well as to the
central switching system or STU. A dis-ease can be thought of
as a disconnection in one or more of these lines. By helping someone
make the connection to the central switching system or the STU,
you temporarily reconnect their broken lines. In effect their
illness flows through you and out of our reality. Ultimately the
person being healed must take responsibility for their own health
by keeping their own lines connected and maintaining their own
connection to the STU. When you are performing these steps, it
is your intent to help heal this individual. This intention is
like a command to the STU to provide the healing. Some healers
even verbalize a command such as "Heal." Keep the connection
for the amount of time that feels right and the healing will begin
to occur. Because of time shifts, the healee may not begin to
feel the effect for some time, possibly as long as a day.
A deliberate disconnection from the person being healed must be
made. The disconnection can be made in many ways. The act of taking
away your hands is sufficient for some. Others mentally have a
screen come down to cut the connection. Some wash their hands.
Any deliberate act or thought accomplishes this step. This disconnection
also provides the mechanism of "letting go" which seems
to be a key factor in accomplishing psychokinesis (i.e., mind
over matter). If this step is not done, you, as the healer, may
retain the illness yourself. If you made your own connection with
the STU as described in Step 1, the illness will flow out of you
into the STU.
Allow yourself to come out of the special or psychic state you
entered in Step 2.
Disconnect your special healing connection with the STU from Step
1. You should maintain your own personal connection with the STU.
Express your thanks to the STU or whatever you believe is the
source of the healing mechanism (e.g., thank God).
Complete healing of someone requires their participation. Sometimes
they really do not want to be well. Often complete healing necessitates
psycological help in addition to the physical healing described
above. You can use these steps to help a person cure physical
problems and show them that they can be well. It may sometimes
be necessary for a patient to change a lifestyle, habit, diet
or belief before a lasting healing can be accomplished. It may
require helping them many times with the psychic healing steps
until their own mind begins to get the idea of how to be well.
Try to avoid letting them become psychologically dependent on
you for their healing. Teach them how to perform the steps on
