Healing may take place in the mental, physical, emotional or spiritual realms.
We all have the ability to heal ourselves. In order to do this, we need to have someone else trigger our self-healing abilities. In order for it to work, this other person must have first healed themselves. This sounds complicated but it is possible. We need to believe that we can be healed otherwise no healing is possible. This comes under the heading of Psychosomatic Medicine which includes the Placebo Affect. A “healer” can only heal another person through healing themselves. This is why Reiki practitioners must practise self-Reiki on a regular basis.
Healing may be triggered by medicine (which includes food), by energy (eg. Reiki, Quantum Touch Healing etc.) or by pure thought.
Apparently, Jesus had quite a high success rate in triggering healing in others.
“Where thought goes, energy flows”.
