Should Children Have Spiritual Healing?
Is spiritual healing suitable for children?
Yes, of course they should! In fact, I'd go so far as to say, I think ALL children should have spiritual healing, perhaps even on a regular basis, both for their body, mind and soul. There is nothing more beautiful, and certainly nothing less harmful to a child than spiritual healing. It is the most natural form of healing in the world.
My own 4 year old son was ill over the Christmas period 2003/2004. I've never really talked to him about healing, except to show him the thumb/finger acupressure points to press on when he has a headache. It was during this illness that something unusual happened.
I put him to bed at his usual time, and we talked about feeding the ducks, a favourite past time for him, while I waited for him to drop off into what I assumed would be a fairly uncomfortable night. It was clear he wasn't feeling well and so I decided to try some healing on him.
I went through the chakra balancing routine and had started going over the limbs, when his eyes opened wide, and he said "Daddy, I can feel a wind coming out of your hands".
I always knew Spiritual Healing was a powerful force, but it never occurred to me that it might be something you could touch and "feel". It is this ability of children to see things differently from us adults that makes Healing such a must for them. They are open to it and receptive to the Healing energy, uncluttered by the cataloguing and pigeon-holing of unexplained phenomena so popular to us "rational" adults.
But, it is the very fact that they are so open to everything around them, in my opinion, so trusting, and yet so naive, that causes them to so easily feel the pain and hurt that life, and some people, so readily throw at them.
Children feel their pain on the inside, and sometimes it never goes away. Their immaturity makes them vulnerable to the wilful or unintentional pain and suffering inflicted upon them by adults, and this can stay with them for the rest of their lives, whether this comes from their parents or others outside the immediate family. Not knowing where to turn means children must accept it, without argument, for lack of knowing who to tell or trust. It's not unusual for children to conclude that this pain is normal for everyone, especially if they have put up with it for some time. Not given the opportunity of release, children turn inwards, putting on a brave face, and often lose the will or the means to express what it is that's troubling them.
It is so easy to hurt children without realizing it. And, I'm sure you all think I'm talking about abuse. Verbal, physical, mental and emotional. Well, yes, I'm talking about all those things, but children can also suffer terribly for lots of other reasons. I'll give you a few examples that you might not have thought of:
Adults nearly always take the view, that all children are "tough" and will "bounce back". And, for the most part that is true, or at least that's what we are led to believe. I don't think that's true at all......
Children aren't tough, they just learn to adapt and cope, to become masters of disguise. They are capable of hiding even the worst of emotional and/or physical problems, and convince us that "nothing is wrong". All this inner pain, eats away at them like a cancer.
Spiritual Healing is a very gentle way of giving your child the energy to cope with their anxiety, an ability to express themselves, and the means to heal themselves. How does this work? Who can say? And, what difference does it make? Many have dissected our spiritualness, and pieced the healing act back together in an attempt to understand it. Whatever conclusions they come to are no more than personal interpretation.
I used to worry about it a lot, because I come from a scientific background, but I realise science cannot answer my questions, and so I stopped asking. I'm always amazed that healing works in the way that it does. But I'm never amazed anymore that it does work. I just know, intuitively, that it is a very powerful force in the universe. We are part of the universe. We are at one with this healing power/ energy/ chi/ ki/ prana/ holy spirit/ light, call it what you like. IT is part of US and WE are part of IT.
Helping children overcome their frustrations, emotions or fears, can be difficult for a parent. Afterall, a parent is naturally intimately tied to the emotional state of their child and can therefore aggravate or create a resistance in the child, which can thwart any treatment that a parent decides is appropriate.
Whilst healers empathize with their patients, they are also experienced at disassociating themselves from the problems of a patient, adult or infant, so that they can concentrate on imparting healing energy to the subject, unhindered. That distance is crucial in making this work. The healer needs to remain free of the negative emotional state that caused the problem. You will find this makes all the difference to the effectiveness of the healing session.
What saddens me more than anything, is that, when I talk to parents, they are always eager to share with me the anxieties of their children, but often seem reluctant to see that there might be a solution. If I feel it severe enough to recommend a healing session, I'm often met with the standard response of parents who are too busy to deal with it, or don't see it as a problem, "Oh, they'll get better on their own" or "They'll get over it", or worse, "I haven't got time to deal with it right now".
These are the very children that need it most! Of those that have chosen the healing path for their children, I have heard this said of a child who was having nightmares, recently, "I can't believe it's the same child", "He's completely changed, he's no longer sad and reserved, but he laughs and plays just like an ordinary child", and, "He doesn't dread going to bed anymore". Dealing with the problem at a young age, freed this young boy from his anxiety, perhaps years earlier than it would have taken for him to deal with it himself.
Healers never promise a cure, but at the same time, they don't place limits on the ability of life's healing energy to work. I would only recommend that you don't, as parents, close your mind to the possibilities and power of healing.
A general word of guidance to parents: Remember, just as you would never leave your child alone in the doctors surgery, never leave your child alone with a healer. Healing does not require the removal of any clothes. In fact, a real healer will insist that you are present during the session, so that you may observe each and every word that is spoken, view every act that is performed and observe or feel the healing energy and your child's reaction to it. Don't be afraid to ask questions! This is your right as a parent, and no real healer will mind explaining the answers to you.
