A Basic Principle of Healing: First, Do No Harm

The Greek healer, Hippocrates, set the first standards for medicine in the form of the Hippocratic Oath.

A basic principle of that oath was

“First do no harm.”

This ethic is meant to be the guide for whatever intervention a physician or healer uses to assist a patient to heal because…

the actual healing itself is done by the body.

For example, you accidentally cut your finger. You may clean the wound and put an antiseptic on it, followed by a bandaid.

None of these things actually cause the cut to heal. That work is done by the physical body itself.

  • Cleaning the wound and using an antiseptic remove bodies that may interfere with the physical body’s ability to repair the cut.
  • A bandaid, or bandage, assists by keeping the cut clean, and may hold the two sides of the cut together, thus making it easier for the body to rec

Natural Healing Technique

Do you know what Reiki is? Reiki comes from the Japanese word Rei and Ki. These words are being used in spiritual healing methods. In seeking definitions, Rei can be defined as Higher Intelligence. It is a subtle wisdom that penetrates everything.

Ki is an abstract energy that animates all living organism. Flowing on every living thing including plants, animals, and also human beings. If the person feels strong and confident, it signifies that the Ki of that person is high. But if the person feels weak and more like getting sick, the Ki of that person is probably low.

This Ki can be found in the air that we breathe, the food we eat, sunshine and from getting sleep. Meditation and breathing exercise can help increase the amount of Ki of our body. When a human dies, Ki will live the human’s body.

Regarding from the information above, we can tell that Reiki is a non-physical healing energy that made up of life energy. Reiki can’t be guided by our minds.

Valentines Are Healing In So Many Ways

As a child it was loads of fun to make Valentines for each member of my class. Valentines are healing in so many ways. I felt the good feeling of making something for someone else.

Looking back on the time, I realize now, Mom was probably just finding projects to keep me and my three sisters busy for a couple of afternoons. We cut and pasted, trimmed and folded. I loved the color pink, so it didn’t surprise anyone when all my valentines had more pink on them and that I kinda’ dominated the pink crayon out of the set of crayons us sisters shared.

Mom was careful to have us take a break with hot chocolate and marshmallows out on the porch so we didn’t muss up our Valentines and, so we wouldn’t get too weary before our mission was accomplished. It was an exciting time of the school year.

Being the youngest of the four, Mom helped my valentines “just a little” so they would be presentable. We lived on a simple budget, so the one p

Mercury Retrograde As Healing

Oh no! Mercury retrograde! Well… not so fast.

It happens every time Mercury goes retrograde (the effect that makes the planet appear to travel backwards in the sky). Things go wrong-well, thanks a lot mercury retrograde. It’s an ingrained response. And it reveals a not-so-hidden problem (if a generally ignored one).

Mercury, of course, doesn’t really go backwards – it simply appears to do so from our perspective on Earth. And that’s the heart of the matter – perception. We see an elliptical orbit from our own elliptical spinning. It distorts reality.

You know this, of course, and that “mercury retrograde” refers to the astrological energetic correspondence. But consider – what is simply an ongoing cycle is perceived as ups and downs. It’s neither. It just is, a fundamental reality.

And that’s the problem with “my current troubles are because mercury is retrograde.&#82

Anger Held Within The Body Brought Me Arthritis – My Healing Journey Part 1

This entire year’s articles will be a series of healing articles on my arthritic hip healing journey and then the healing after arthroscopic surgery of the hip. I’ve been dealing with pain in my hip due to arthritis for the past couple of years now. When I had it checked out, I was told by my orthopedic that although too young now, I will at some point need a new hip due to degenerative arthritis. This less than wonderful news was so very upsetting but for me, but it was now time to ramp up my healing with Reiki. Then, it was back to business as usual. So back to my workouts as there’s really nothing to do just yet but deal with the occasional arthritis pain and continue with Reiki to help.

During one of my workouts last April, I realized that something was terribly wrong. After the workout and the day after, I didn’t have the usual pain feeling like I did a hell of a workout. It was a sharp continuous pain which we discovered shortly after through an

Powerful Healing Prayers: Discover How to Get Healed Through Miracles of Faith

Faith healing may be traced back to the ancient Greek and Roman times, where the god of medicine – Asclepius was acclaimed as the ultimate healer. Besides this “god” there were many other gods and idols used by faith healers when practicing their art. The bible also notes many instances where faith healing was used successfully. The case of Naaman’s bathing ritual produced total recovery from his leprosy condition. The New Testament of the bible also has many examples of faith healing, some of which was done by Jesus himself.


Psalm 107:19-20; “Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction

The scripture above says in verse 20; that the word of God heals us from sickness and diseases, it also delivers us from trouble and destruction.

Healing Begins on the Soul Level

We all have healing issues, regardless if they are physical, emotional, spiritual, financial or a myriad of issues.

Dealing with these issues is a primary reason we chose to reenter the earth’s plane and reincarnate. It is the only dimension where we can settle issues from the past.

Our issues can be solved on other levels of existence, but it is a long and time consuming process, the best and quickest way to finally solve our challenges is to face up to them on the physical plane.

Jesus once said, “You must be born again.” In my opinion what that actually means is that we must comprehend and face our challenges while in a physical body by connecting with our God Source while living and walking on planet earth.

Many times, and rightfully so, we seek healing with the help of others. We consult doctors and many other professionals in the medical field. While this is all well and good and a sensible path to follow, they cannot heal us unles
