AWAKEN YOUR INNER HEALING POWERS
Powerful spiritual masters, saints and healers have been known to have performed inner-work, meditation and spiritual practices for long periods of time including their past lives. Through your own inner awareness you can also awaken your own inner powers slowly and practice simple healing to begin with. Healing methods and practices are being taught all over the world through various traditions and systems of healing and by various spiritual teachers.
Always remember that spirtual healing is not prescribed as an alternate to physical healing. While spiritual healing is directed at the spirit or inner self, physical healing such as modern medicine is effective on the physical body directly. However inner healing or spiritual healing is believed to have more permanent effects in preventing future disease by helping enhance one’s inner positive energy.
All the best!
