Someone just recently asked me how they could practice positive healing intention while suffering from daily severe pain. This person has tried all of the recommended treatments including those from both alternative and mainstream schools of thought. I have seen others who have had similar problems who sought relief from severe pain.
This brings the question: Is all healing physical?
In other words can healing occur while the physical body breaks down? I believe that people can experience healing outside of their physical bodies. We exist on more than one level and we can experience healing on these higher levels of existence.
I have seen people with severe diseases such as cancer experience healing just before death. This type of healing is not in the physical realm but in the spirit. Many of these people found peace in their last days despite dealing with the pain of their physical bodies.
For me, I think healing means resolution. In other words to heal means to resolve something be it physical, mental or spiritual.
So what do I tell my friend who suffers from severe pain? I will tell him to focus his intention not on the physical pain but on resolving some issue be it in his mind or spirit.
