I was asked “Is there any danger or risk involved in spiritual healing?” Before any of these questions can be answered, it is important to understand what spiritual healing really is. So what is spiritual healing?
It is the ability to recognize and accept a Divine Power beyond our own intelligence. This Divine Power has the ability to provide inspiration, peace and guidance that goes beyond what is possible in the absence of power exists.
The basis of spiritual healing is energy is transmitted from this Divine Power (regardless of what you refer to this power as) to a person who needs it. It works on the body, mind, and spirit.
It is believed by spiritual healers that you cannot heal only one part of a person, all three have to be healed. Spiritual Healing can provide assistance for mental and emotional ailments (as well as spiritual) that manifest in to physical ailments.
A Spiritual Healer is basically channeling healing energy from their own spiritual source to the person who needs the spiritual healing.
The healing energy is usually transferred to the patient through lying on of hands (or focused through some implementation tool i.e. crystal). It is important to remember that the healing is not coming from the healer, but through them.
Spiritual healing does not require a healer to “do” anything specifically. When you hold hands with another person and pray that is a form of spiritual healing.
The word spiritual is known widely as a divine source from something external or invisible to humans. This is available to everyone. Not just healers.
Healers see the body, mind, and spirit as interdependent parts of a whole and must work in harmony with one another. This is not only a spiritual view point, but it is supported by science and medical community.
Spiritual healing can help with any type of problem, whether it is mental, physical or emotional. Healing can be especially effective for musculo-skeletal problems.
When Spiritual Healing is seen as an additional source of healing to be used in correlation and combination with medicine; it can be a powerful source of energy to tap into.
The risk of spiritual healing is when those practicing spiritual healing believe that they are the healer not the conduit. This happens frequently in the world of today.
So to answer your question, it is not the healing that has any risk at all, but rather the healer themselves that can be the risk. Spiritual healing is NEVER a replacement treatment for medical diagnosis and treatment.
