Restoration of Harmony
am not a healer, but I often wish I could help people who need
healing. What can I do?
If you have
sufficient understanding that you yourself are a spirit, then you
can draw upon the spiritual power which is forever at work in the
If you desire to draw healing to yourself or to impart it to others
who are in need, seat yourself in some restful place and allow to
drop away all fret, anxiety and fear, slowly bringing yourself into
a state of quiet meditative thought until you are conscious of the
deep peace of the spirit and the warm power of the Love which heals
all things. Then in loving thought send to those you desire to help
the silver thread of your influence. Visualise their eyes as you
last saw them, for the eye is the window of the soul, and if the
expression of the eye was weary, lonely or closed with fearfulness,
see it changed into joy, peace and glowing health. Try to hold that
picture, at the same time attempting to unite these people whom you
desire to help with the flowing warmth and peace which is coming to
Always where there is a desire to help there will be the watching
spirits who will endeavour to forward your work. Spiritual healing
is very much a living influence transmitted from soul to soul, and
it will flow from your soul into theirs.
Many people seek
healing going from one healer to another, but they fail to get
It would be better
if they would seek firstly with honesty within themselves to
discover why they are ill and do not improve. Truly, some
sicknesses are not healed by the healers because the inner
consciousness of the patient desires to keep this sickness as a
shield against their inner state of inadequacy. Truthfulness of the
spirit should bring its own reward, so long as there is honesty of
purpose between patient and healer.
Are there any
limitations to spiritual healing? I am thinking of epidemics. Could
such illness be avoided?
There are no
limitations to the power of the spirit. There is a community
consciousness, and almost without their awareness people may become
influenced by the waves of fearful thought which are emanated by the
nation or group which is surrounding them, and it needs a high
degree of spiritual enlightenment to withstand these.
When you absorb such thought vibrations of fear or disharmony you
become part of the whole sea of infectious disease, but if you are
steadfast in daily indrawing the power of Light and breathing out
healing and harmony to those around you, then you can cancel this
negative community power of thought and keep yourself and the people
near you in harmony and freedom from disease.
Can one become a
more efficient instrument for healing by trying to think of one’s
healing guide, or is it better just to think of something spiritual?
It is better to
try to empty yourself more completely so that you become a clearer
channel, an empty vessel. Because you have the desire to heal, so
you are known as a healing vessel, and as you give yourself to your
healing work, try to let go from yourself all anxiety and strain,
bringing yourself into a state of relaxation. Simply hold the
thought, "Here am I, a vessel which must be filled because I am
trying to empty myself." Thus you should find the healing ray come
in greater strength and purity.
One way to do this is to place your hand upon the one who is sick,
relax yourself in body and mind and simply hold within your
consciousness a thought that the power of the healer and patient are
one. Unite yourself with the power so that without effort, striving
or strain there is unity between the power, the patient and
Why cannot you
heal people upon earth without our help?
In some cases we
are able to bring renewing spiritual energy direct unto the sick
person, but often the renewing force they need is of the etheric
realm, and therefore the healer transmitting spiritual energy is
also transmitting force which is within the living ether of your
It could be symbolised in this fashion: if you took a fish from the
water and it lay dying upon the earth, I could give the fish
renewing life force, but unless you returned the fish into the water
it would die, for it needs not a superabundance of air, it needs air
diluted, which it gets within the water. Even so, the human being is
sick because there is a lack of etheric life-force pulsating through
the etheric body. We may bring a renewal of spiritual energy unto
that person, but if they cannot gather sufficient etheric life force
then the spirit will be strengthened and renewed but the etheric
body will not, and so death may take place. Thus the loved one will
come in strength into the spirit life, but will not remain in
strength here upon your earth.
Why do we
sometimes feel the spiritual power strongly, while at other times
hardly at all? How can we best harness it for the good of others?
There is no
increase in the power, only in your capacity to receive, contain and
to channel it through your own personality into the earthly
experience. You need to learn how to be harmonious channels, not by
making great and sweeping changes in yourselves, but in knowing how
to conserve your own natural energies and to use them wisely.
Consider the young children in your midst; do they not reflect
tremendous activity as they run, jump, speak and move? They have not
yet learned an essential lesson, that the great flowing flux of life
has to be controlled and used harmoniously if it is to bring harmony
and beauty into being. So you say unto them, "You must learn to
rest, to sleep and to be still, that you many not tire yourselves
needlessly." But you do not go far enough, you fail to teach them
how to conserve their energies that they may enter into the
inwardness of silence.
Your hours of loneliness are precious gifts granted unto you, but
how often do you use them wisely? You fritter the hours away in
useless occupations instead of bringing the body and mind under the
subjection of the will, that you may conserve the spiritual energy
of the soul and mind, and the healthful energy of the body. How
often, too, you dissipate energy in your speaking together. This is
good when it is the expression of your love and desire to understand
each other, but how much energy is fruitlessly dissipated in
pointless remarks, in what you call "polite conversation"? The voice
can heal, the tongue can bless. Truly, your words can bring beauty
and harmony unto the earth when they are the outward sounding forth
of the spiritual energy flowing from your inward consciousness.
This is the secret of your power: learning how to speak and when
not to speak; learning how to control your thoughts so that
gradually they become ideas of idealism, lovingness and truth.
Eliminate thoughts which vibrate round and round yourself in
self-concern, in fear of the future or regret over the past. These
serve no purpose except to exhaust you so that when you desire to
bring forth healing, you say, "I do not know why it is, but the
power is weakened today." It is not the power which is weakened, but
it is your inability to receive, to conserve and to respond.
Truly the spiritual life is one of discipline and service, the
golden joy of service, but you may only attain unto the fullness
when you are in harmony with the great flowing Divine spiritual
So, seat yourselves in peace, think upon the things eternal, and
conserve within yourselves the energies of life.
Is it possible to
conserve healing force?
From your hands
flows a spiritual magnetism, and this usually can be seen in rays of
blue, either dark or pale blue, and when the fingers are curled,
then is the blue radiance turned in upon itself so that a blue globe
is created there. Meditate upon this, because it is the blue globe
of healing which later you will use.
When you desire to prepare yourself for healing or helping another,
sometimes fold over your fingers and close within your hands the
spiritual force of your own spirit, then, when you give your hands
in healing and comradeship to another, it is transmitted to them in
life and beauty.
Why does one
sometimes feel very weary and depleted when helping people?
This is because
you are allowing them to draw strength from you, rather than you
yourself drawing strength from above and sending it forth to them in
a conscious effort of love and thought. So long as you keep your
attention turned upward toward the great canopy of spiritual power,
allowing this to flow into yourself, you can send out light and love
in feeling and thought without becoming unduly exhausted. But if you
are trying to carry those who are weak, or allowing them to extract
energy from you, then you are not living in harmony with spiritual
The spiritual law is: draw the power and give it forth, and in this
you cannot be exhausted.
affect healing power?
I think the eating
of meat will make little difference to the healing power you are
using so long as your state of consciousness is not identified in
pleasure with the food you eat. The sustenance of the mortal body
should always be taken with detachment, and with the thought that,
as you partake of food, it is the offering of the low and mortal
self unto the high and immortal self, that it may be translated into
the energy needed for this particular work. If you load your body
with too much animal food you may upset the chemical balance, and
this will interfere with the flow of healing force, but if it is
only a small amount and your spiritual consciousness is correct,
then it would make but little difference.
How can absent
healing help ease great pain?
Do not send forth
the thought concerned with the easing of pain, but rather think of
an instrument in which the strings have been tightly bound so they
are taut and vibrating with too strong a vibration. Visualise those
strings being tuned, slackened, so that as the hand of the harpist
goes across them it may vibrate melody and harmony, not the
discordancy of broken strings. Much pain of the physical body is the
result of nerves which are taut and tight with fear.
How does absent
transmit healing energy. They sit together in silence so that their
spiritual consciousness may be raised. As they attune themselves
unto the spiritually potent etheric force this flows into them,
charging their spiritual and etheric body with a super-abundance of
energy. Then from within their etheric body comes a silvery thread
of light which is joined to the sick person, and through this fine
thread of light is transmitted the increased abundance of spiritual
energy. The patient's spiritual body is stimulated and recharged,
and the etheric body is brought back again into an abundance of
energy so that the disease force disappears and is replaced by
health and harmony.
Is it ever a kind
of psychic interference to send out love and healing to someone who
has not asked for it?
for if you are sending love and healing winged with compassion this
cannot harm another soul. It will soothe or enrich. But if that one
is truly resistent to that which you are extending, then what has
been sent will not be accepted and may circle round and return to
yourself. You can never cause harm by giving forth love and by
endeavouring to create harmony.
How can a person
be helped after suffering a stroke which results in the lost use of
part of their body, for example, an arm or leg? What is the cause?
What you call a
stroke is the result of thickening of blood causing some congestion
or injury within the brain. The reason for this often lies in the
emotional body, for where there are extremes of anger or poor
control over the emotions, the delicate heart centre is affected,
and eventually there is congestion of the blood resulting in this
injury to the brain. So there are two conditions here, one belonging
to the spiritual being, one to the physical body. I would say that
the immobilisation of the leg, arm, or organs of speech simply
results in the slight stagnation in the flow of energies within the
ethereal body. But if there is an outpouring of healing energies
from an attendant healer, often this will stimulate the dormant
energies in the spiritual being, and may also clear the damage which
has occurred in the physical brain. Then, if there is a calming and
healing within the emotional body, some movement and renewal of
health can be regained.
Does it matter if
a patient is non-co-operative in absent healing?
No, for upon the
spiritual level thought is creative and thought is energy, therefore
the healer can send thought and energy to a link such as yourself.
As you think lovingly of the patient, you receive the living force
from the healer and transmit it to the loved one.
Try to understand that on the spiritual level, all thought is
energy and energy is creative, and in this great etheric stream
of life around you, there is nothing which can hinder it if it is
sent with love and spiritual intent.
How can I heal
endeavour to spend time, day by day, in the remembrance of the
source from which you have sprung. You are spirit, spirit using your
body, so your body is only the tool of your spirit. If you gain a
purer, clearer spirit consciousness of the Master Creator, then you
attune yourself to this perfect power and it will harmonise and heal
the body, restoring it to health.
I know a vicar's
wife whose hands are twisted with arthritis, but who is always
joyful and uncomplaining. Why has she this affliction?
I would say that
such a soul has deep within her spiritual self certain faculties
either for art or music, or even for the religious life, which in
her inner self she desires to express, but because the pattern of
her earthly life labours have to be fulfilled, responsibilities
carried, and the outward formalities of religion observed: all these
fill her days. So instead of blessing her hands, she may create a
barrier between the inward flowing desire of the soul and that daily
toil which has to be outwardly expressed through the mortal body.
This would create a blockage between the spiritual will and the use
of the hands.
individuals in tune with certain plants or trees?
Truly, for each
plant and tree has its own healing vibration, and a note of power is
sounded by all plants and trees within the framework of that
pattern. Persons who are in need of a particular harmonising force,
by cultivating certain plants or by attuning themselves unto a
woodland or walking within a forest, may find that the vibratory
note plays upon them. Through their attunement they gain harmony and
How would they
By a feeling of
harmony. Restoration takes place first within the spiritual bodies,
but truly mediumistic people may become aware of a note or melody
emanating from a group of trees or plants.
Does that account
for flowers thriving better in some rooms or houses?
Yes, but where
living persons are in a state of disharmony, then as the plant or
flower vibrates its essential keynote of harmony, this disharmonious
one may absorb it to such a degree that the plant, deprived of its
harmonising force, will die before its ordinary season of existence
affliction is a conscious choice of the soul before incarnation, is
it right to try to heal the affliction?
Truly, for healing
is the expression of love. Love is the power which cleanses,
forgives and understands. Therefore, although there may be some
souls who enter the earthly life to undertake the difficult
experience of pain or bodily imperfection because of something they
desire to learn, there is no reason why their pain should not be
eased by love, nor yet the debt cancelled and cleansed by the higher
love force expressed through healing. Indeed, quite often a sufferer
may be brought into contact with a healer that the law may work in
such a fashion when they are almost ready to be healed.
Much of this teaching of karma is only partly understood and
expressed in your world, for this sense of debt and this feeling of
the need to suffer is often only in the consciousness of the
incarnating soul; it is not a burden laid upon that one by some
external power. Therefore, if that soul can become aware of the
cleansing and forgiving love it will be cleansed of its own
What happens when

entering into the mortal existence forms a chain of life. Within
this chain are years and months of experience. Even as a chain has
its weaker and strong links, so each spirit having within its use
this chain of life, chooses to live sometimes for sixty years, maybe
for a season of one hundred years or even for three years. So we
look to see whether it is good and right to strengthen the hold of a
spirit upon its body by looking on the whole chain. If the illness
is simply associated with the weakening of the link, then we will
strengthen it so that life and inspiration may continue. But if the
chain ceases, then we say, “This is the time when this beloved one
has chosen to leave the mortal existence,” and we will help their
leaving of the body and coming into spirit.
What part of a
tree should we use for healing?
This will depend
upon your purpose. If your natural energies have become lowered and
you feel exhausted, then stand against a tree. Lean your back
against it so that the sensitive nerves and the etheric flow in your
spine may be re-energised from the energy forces which flow up and
down through the etheric body of the tree.
If you wish to make healing foods or drinks, then it is good to use
the flowers, sometimes the leaf. Take from the lime tree its leaves
and blooms and infuse these in water, then drink the liquid. It will
clear the mind and strengthen the soul. Take from your strong oak
tree part of the blossom, and in using this it will bring a degree
of strength. The elder tree which bears great clusters of white
blooms and in its turn purple berries, is especially beneficial to
those who are older. The flower, leaf and berry have qualities very
helpful to those weakened by the slowing down of the body cells
through advancing years.
How can we attune
ourselves to the rhythms of the earth in order to remain well and
As the winter ends and the first signs of spring manifest, each man
and woman should say: "Now I will give my body a period of rest, in
preparation for the rising tide of life." For two or three days you
should withdraw from normal activities and rest and fast, allowing
extra cleansing to take place in the cells of the body. After this,
go forth and attune yourself to the rhythm of the earth and you will
feel you want to walk, to run, to be active, as the animating energy
begins to surge in renewing power through your body.
If you are becoming spiritually aware, you will "feel" intuitively
when this time is needed. You should allow this period of resting
and renewal to govern your living, so at this time change your food
from the warm clogging foods of winter to the lighter substances of
the renewing spring. Eat the new young leaves as plants come into
being. Make drinks from dried herbs and take honey which will give
you energy in a new form by energising the cells of the body.
When autumn comes, attune yourself to the newer rhythm, feeding
your body on nuts, seeds and berries-food which nature has provided
for man in that season-so that your body may be carried forward on
nature's own rhythm.
If you do this, you will find your spiritual consciousness will
begin to tell what your body requires that it may be a good
instrument, a centre through which you may manifest spiritually, in
harmony and joy without weakness or disease. Food should be the
medicine of the body, and when your spiritual knowledge is strong,
then indeed your medicine is in the natural foods.
It is difficult to
find time to do these things with all the tension of life in the
Yes, and it is for
that reason I stress this thought that you should allow yourself a
little season of rest for two or three days as the winter gives way
to spring, so that you may feel the change in the rhythm and
allow the body to have its "little death" followed by its "renewal
of life". By so doing, much stress and illness can be prevented.
When we are
attracted by a particular sound, is it one we have an affinity with,
or something of which we are deficient?
When you listen to
sound you should listen with your inner awareness, discovering in
what area of your person the note brings forth an answering
vibration. There should come, either underneath your heart or in the
area of your brain, a response to that especial note, and as you
respond to it so you will know that this is your keynote at this
particular time. If you are aware within yourself that there is
disharmony, then let that note sound and vibrate through you to
bring about a re-harmonisation of the atoms of the soul and body.
Many of you forget these ancient truths, the powers of intonation
or incantation. As you intone through a number of notes your voice
will eventually reach one which is easy and familiar to you. If you
sound that note it should bring about a gradual re-organisation of
the atoms within your being. It is one of the simple exercises
practised by those who wish to heal by sound.
Is that the same
as saying a mantra?
To say a mantra is
surely to make an incantation, but it would be better to speak it,
letting the sound vibrate from your inner self. If you sound a high
note of joy, then you bring about healing in the higher areas of
your person; if you sound it on the deeper notes, then the healing
occurs in the lower part of your body.
You have spoken
about the healing properties in sound vibration. Is there a scale of
sound applicable to various illnesses?
This is a healing
cult which will come into being as your world moves forward into the
subtleties of the age which is still to come, for it will move out
of the present methods of surgery into the harnessing of the power
of light, sound and colour, to bring about healing and the
restoration of health.
Sound is the primal stirring force which causes energy to congeal
into atomic patterns which become the created world in the midst of
which you dwell. But if you can harness sound to colour and then
detect the colouration which is weak in the soul body of the one
whom you desire to help, then often harmony can be restored by the
simple vibrating of that sound. But this is a method which needs
extreme carefulness in use, for continued sound can be destructive
as well as constructive, and so we do not give the full token of
understanding to earth's children concerning this until they have
the wisdom to use it wisely.
But it is also true to say that in your world you have simple songs
and hymns which have a harmonising effect upon the soul bodies of
those who sing them, and to whom they are sung. These songs and
hymns of praise relating to older religious forms have a latent
healing force because they have created within the ethereal
atmosphere an archetype or shape which becomes a chalice of power.
So when these old songs and liturgies are sounded, they can bring
peace and harmony because power is evoked within the inner planes by
the use of those sound forms.
healing, is this a point when the healer achieves perfect meditation
while they are healing?
Not only does the
healer achieve this breaking through into the realm of universal
life and perfection, but the patient is also momentarily uplifted
above the limitations of the mind and body. Like one bird uplifted
by the strength of another, they come together and are upraised
momentarily in unity to this great Source of life and perfection,
and through this comes the instantaneous healing.
One remembers the
Master Jesus performing that healing by the laying on of hands.
Truly, but Master
Jesus had the ability to love those who were sick and to feel such
compassion that through his love he created a unity from himself to
the sufferer. It is this unity that is needed before the healer may
lift the sufferer into the realm of universal healing. Not only must
he learn through meditation to come into this more perfect state of
unfoldment, but he must learn to love his brother man and sister
woman, not with abstract love, but to see in them the intrinsic
beautiful soul that is there.
In your work of healing you often have the desire to help, but you
do not know how to love each other. So go forth! Learn to overlook
each others' faults, learn to encourage the weak and to uplift the
fallen because of the universal love which surges within your heart.
Let your thought go forth in healing unto other creatures of the
earth and let your living magnetic force radiate unto all things
that you see, all things that you touch.
Remember, do not live unto yourselves alone, but live as part of
the whole. As part of the whole let goodness, love and peace be your
