In this site I aim to present and explain several forms of healing that any ordinary person can learn, without having to be psychic or possess any other weird and wonderful abilities. For purely physical health, I begin with the alkaline diet because I know from experience that it works and can have a profound affect on physical health.
After that, I move on to various forms of "spiritual healing" which are also effective and can be mastered by anyone. Most of them involve some form of meditation, ranging from visualisations to mantras and a form of affirmation. These techniques can be used for giving healing to yourself or to another person.
I also describe how to give a full session of hands-on healing to another person, as well as ways of utilising what could be called mind power.
If you acquaint yourself with the techniques described in this site, you can open yourself up to a whole world of healing you never knew existed. The best thing of all is that none of it depends on faith. You don't need faith for these techniques to work; all you need is an open mind. Neither do you need any particular gift or psychic abilities; I have restricted myself to forms of healing that anyone can learn.
The alkaline diet is based on the principle that food, when it is metabolised in the cells of the body, leaves what is known as an "ash", which is either acidic or alkaline. The theory proposes that an alkaline ash is conducive to good health and an acidic ash is conducive to bad health. The idea is that the diet should be 80% alkaline foods and 20% acidic foods because it takes four parts alkaline to neutralise one part acid; 80% is four times 20%.
I first started to experiment with the alkaline diet several years ago and the results were startling. After six months, an old allergic reaction to certain grasses cleared up; whereas previously I would block up in the sinuses if I lay down on grass, suddenly, after six months, I found that I could lay down on grass without blocking up.
After seven months, my incipient arthritis was starting to ease up; where previously I had been getting pain in various places, after seven months these places felt stiff but not painful. After twelve months, even the stiffness was gone. Sinus trouble caused by allergic reactions to house dust and house mites also disappeared completely. I also found that my neck felt a lot looser than before, and did not make bloodcurdling cracks and crunches when I shook my head from side to side. In other words, results were remarkable (I should admit that I cheated to an extent by using various supplements, but more about that elsewhere).
Alkaline foods are generally vegetables, citrus fruits, soy and tap water (spring water is mildly acidic).
Acidic foods are more numerous and often include nourishing foods like grain, meats and fish, which is what makes it difficult to have an alkaline diet. Rubbishy "foods" like sugar are predictably acidic.
For more detailed information on the alkaline diet, see my website on the subject:
My total experience and intuition have convinced me that golden light is the healing meditation. Some clairvoyants have linked golden light with unconditional love and our link with divinity, and certainly my own experience has left me in no doubt that golden light represents the higher spiritual levels. Many healers like to work with different colours, but golden light takes the healing to a higher level. Swami Chidvilasananda, leader of Siddha Yoga, has said, "The threshold of reality is bathed in golden light."
The visualisation itself consists simply of visualising golden light coming down from the heavens and going into you or the patient. To a large extent, allow the light to develop its own shape. It may become a broad beam covering the whole body, or it may concentrate on the area being treated. Allow it to do this, but keep it golden. I have sometimes found it takes on the appearance of rain or a waterfall. Sometimes the light may even take on the form of a human being.
To use golden light for self-healing, sit or lay down, possibly with relaxing music on as long as it is not distracting. Visualise the heavens opening up and a beam of golden light pouring down on you. You can give healing to specific parts of the body if you have any particular physical problems, or you can direct the light to your chakras (energy centres in the body; see Mind Power for more information). Visualise the light going to each chakra one by one, starting with the crown chakra and working down to the base chakra. How long you spend on each chakra is largely a matter of intuition; in other words, do what feels right.
Sometimes this kind of healing can come of its own accord and take unexpected forms. As an example, I was in bed one night, still awake, when the idea of golden light suddenly popped into my head from nowhere. I took the hint and began to visualise a beam of golden light in front of me. It gradually moved closer to me until it came to my head. It then changed shape and began to look like a cap or lid as it moved up to my crown chakra. It fitted itself on top of the crown chakra like a cap and then slowly sank down through my body until it stopped at the base chakra. It stayed at the base chakra for some time, then turned into a purer, finer golden tone. This finer gold remained at the base chakra until I felt too tired to continue the visualisation.
It happened that, about a week before, a spiritual healer had said that I had a blockage in the base chakra. Apparently, then, the session with the golden light was aimed at clearing the blockage. The whole session was quite unplanned and unexpected.
As another example, there was a more planned session that came about because I had managed to do some damage to my heart chakra due to a whole host of factors. One day I decided to do some healing on the chakra, so I lay down and visualised golden light going into the chakra. Within a minute or two, the beam turned into a green light without any prompting on my part and then into a kind of green mist that poured down and spread over the chakra. The mist took on the most beautiful, rich green colouring imaginable and became as dense as a London fog. After a few minutes of this, the green fog cleared and revealed an image of my chest opened up as if for surgery. This image then gave way to vague but complex images conveying an impression of great activity talking place around the heart chakra. The impression created was like that of a team of surgeons at work. Eventually this gave way to an image of my chest in more or less normal condition, but raised slightly in the middle, like a pimple. This gave the impression that the chakra was more or less back to normal, although some healing remained to be done. The entire session had taken about twenty minutes.
Over the next few days, I found the ache in the chest had subsided substantially but not completely. Deciding to change tack, I decided to use the visualisation as a straight meditation, without worrying about the heart chakra. I would sit on a lounge chair and briefly visualise my guru, then see the heavens opening up and pouring golden light down on me. This had a strongly uplifting effect, which increased as I visualised the light going into my head. As the light went through my brain, I experienced a strong sensation of holiness and said a prayer for general healing. I would maintain the visualisation for up to twenty minutes, during which time the sense of holiness was quite pronounced and often made me feel that I had been touched by God. By the end of the meditation I would be saying, "Thank you God, thank you God" over and over. After practising this meditation for several days, the ache in my chest had cleared up completely.
This experience illustrates vividly some of the different ways that golden light can be used. I should say there were times when I tried using white light instead, but it kept turning into golden light of its own accord.
In using golden light, it is crucial to let the light do the work rather than for you to try to control what is going on. I have known people who used golden light, but who tried to direct and control it. The idea is simply to put the beam of light there and let it do the work, without trying to control it.
OM SHRI DHANVANTRE NAMAHA
(pr: Om Shree Dhahn-vahn-tray Nah-ma-hah)
I found this mantra in the excellent book, Shakti Mantras, by Thomas Ashley-Farrand. This mantra is associated with Dhanvantari, the physician to the gods and the person who was responsible for giving the nectar of immortality to the gods. It translates roughly as Om and salutations to Dhanvantari. (If you wonder why Dhanvantre is spelled differently from Dhanvantari, the explanation is simple: Sanskrit grammar.)
There are two ways this mantra can be used. The first is to shed light on any medical problem or similar situation where you are not certain of the best way to proceed. Repeated twice daily for twenty minutes or so, the mantra helps you get a better understanding of the problem and what you can do about it. It can even shed light on issues like whether a medical problem is physical or psychosomatic. I have used this mantra myself on several occasions and can attest to its effectiveness.
The other way to use this mantra is to enhance your effectiveness as a therapist if you happen to be one. The use of the mantra will give you a better perspective on things you can do to improve your performance as a healer.
This technique came to me right out of the blue, when the subject of healing was not in my head at all. Suddenly it occurred to me, unbidden, that the way to get healing is to give thanks for having been healed as if you have already been healed. The way to do this is to utilise a very simple affirmation along the lines of: Thank you God for healing me. If you are not keen on God, use you can say Universe or the name of your spiritual teacher or guru if you have one, or anything else that you relate to. The technique is infinitely flexible and gives you plenty of scope to adapt it to your own belief system or outlook on life.
The beauty of this healing technique is that it can be used for emotional issues as well as physical. For example, anyone with a serious burden of guilt could receive emotional healing by saying Thank you God for forgiving me. Anyone with a serious fear issue could say Thank you God for healing my fear. And so on.
On one occasion, when I was using this affirmation in a very intensive way, I found myself experiencing the sense that I was in a state of mind where magic and alchemy take place. May you too have the experience of that state of mind.
