Individuals and groups can use a number of methods to help heal others. Visualization, affirmations, a request to a healing force greater than one self, they have all been known to heal others to a quantifiably significant degree.
If you choose prayer as your method to help, I would suggest closing your eyes to quiet the mind and clasping the hands to slow the body’s physical activities. Focus your mind and heart, then visualize those in need and/or others praying, and ask God for his help. For more prayer information I found this site to be useful.
Affirmations are repeated words spoken as truths. They must be spoken with certainty, sincerity, and feeling. An example would be, “John’s body is healthy and functioning in a very positive way.” When performing an affirmation, absolute attention comes first, but continuity and repetition mean a great deal as well. A website with more information on the subject can be found here.
Another way to heal yourself and others is by placing conscious thought on the outcome you want to happen. Many people accomplish this by getting into a meditative state and directing positive energy to the person’s area of concern. A beginners meditative guide can be found at howtomeditate.us
Additionally, if you choose prayer or meditation to help, they are both known to have many positive health benefits on the ones performing them. Executing either one will relax your body and mind, which slows down your respiration rate, heart rate, and improves blood flow throughout your body. In effect, this reduces stress on your organs and other bodily systems.
When we have better circulatory, digestive, and elimination systems, we improve our ability to rid ourselves of toxic wastes and enhance our immune function. Prayer and meditation also help to reduce pain levels, improve memory, and speed up memory recall. So as we pray or meditate to help each other recover from disease, injury, or illness, we are helping ourselves remain healthy and happy.
