Throughout the world,
healing of all types goes on. In the industrialized world, we are most
familiar with "conventional" medicine, practiced by medical doctors of
various specialties, using combinations of pharmaceuticals, therapies,
and surgeries. Healing goes far beyond this!

Types of healing
discussed in this site are commonly known as "holistic". There are
various types of these.
Reiki is a simple and
powerful system of healing that can transform lives. Reiki works on the
body, mind, and emotional and spiritual levels. It releases blocked
energy, promotes relaxation and reduces stress. Reiki can enhance
intuition, meditation and personal spiritual evolution. Reiki is a
system of energy healing which originated in Japan.
This is discussed further on the Reiki
page on this site.
Another type of
healing which can be done is a healing circle,
which is a circle, possibly a Wiccan circle, possibly another type of
circle, for the purpose of healing. The person(s) to be healed may be
present, in which case often hands-on "energy" healing is done. The
person may be some distance away, or perhaps even on the other side of
the world. In any case, healings are always done with the consent of
the person(s) to be healed.
Energy and Prayer
Energy and prayer may
also be used to convey healing energy, with or without a formal system
such as Reiki, or it may be done in the context of any
goodness-oriented religion. Or, it may be little more than sending
"good thoughts" to someone who is in need or ill.
This is discussed further on the Energy
and Prayer and Healing
Circles pages on this site.
Healing may also be
done with the empathic layer of psychic phenomenon, as well as it can
through the telepathic layer of psychic phenomenon. It must be done
differently though. Empathy
