Resources: Healing Modalities
While deeply involved with St Marys Spiritualist Church, located in Sydney's outer west during the late 1970's and early 1980's, Harry Edwards’ book, A Guide To Understanding The Practice of Spiritual Healing, inspired discussion during our regular meditation groups.
Fast forward to Hobart in 2009 and while undergoing chemotherapy for colon cancer, I re-read Edwards’ book. This time the spiritual healing segment on mind and cancer was of particular importance as it clarified many deeper concerns associated with the disease.
In 2020, the Internet hosts a plethora of healing literature, practices, disciplines, workshops and more. From a conscious spirituality perspective, resources are available to any seeker of truth, particularly those with an interest in developing spiritual healing.
One organisation, The Universal Spiritual Brother & Sisterhood (USB) through their Spiritual Light teachings suggest that healing is the greatest gift we can offer to another human being.
A personal disclaimer: The literature on this web site does not in any way suggest that conventional prescriptive medicine or professional medical guidance should ever be ignored when addressing personal health issues. The following spiritual and complementary healing articles provide an introduction to the many healing practice disciplines available today.

FUNDAMENTAL IDEA OF HEALING
“The first fundamental idea about healing requires that we maintain a creative balance between two principles. All healing comes from the infinite - that is, from attunement and harmony with our spiritual source. The infinite is just as accessible and available in the visible, physical world as it is in the invisible realm. At the same time, each person must take responsibility for his or her own healing process. No one can simply sit back and wait passively for healing to occur.
This second principle - the need for self-responsibility - can take many forms. For example, healing requires attunement, and no one knows better than ourselves exactly what has gotten us out of attunement in the past.
Often, if we'll look closely at our lives, we can see (without needing a gifted medical clairvoyant such as Edgar Cayce) what's causing our illness. To illustrate self-responsibility further, the human body has a marvellous, innate drive to heal itself, but we've got to do our part to help. A broken bone will naturally try to mend; however, the fracture needs to be set properly for the healing to be complete and effective.
Another important principle relates to energy medicine, a new field in which Edgar Cayce was a pioneer. His readings consistently speak of the roles played by vibrations or vibratory forces - right down to the level of individual atoms. According to Cayce, there is a type of consciousness that exists in each atom. Although most of the passages about the atomic physics of healing seem rather esoteric, it might be easier to follow the analogy of the attunement of a stringed musical instrument.”
