The word Spiritual originates from the Latin word 'spiritus' meaning 'breath of life'.
Healing can be defined as regaining balance of mind, body, and/or emotions.
While there are many modalities of energy balancing and healing available today, Spiritual Healing concentrates upon a connection with the Divine Source. Our emphasis is upon things that are Spiritual in nature, yet part of the physical nature of the universe.
Spiritual Healing is a natural energy therapy that complements conventional medicine by treating the whole person - mind, body and spirit. The healer acts as a conduit for healing energies to flow through to the recipient, the benefits of which can be felt on many levels, including the physical.
Spiritual healing treats the whole person. It is the art and science of assisting the restoration of health at all levels of being irrespective of where ill-health has manifested. We are more than our physical selves. We have mental emotional and spiritual layers, too. As many studies have shown, problems on the physical level are often rooted in the other components of our overall makeup. Healing may be given for any illness, stress or injury as a therapy which has no side effects and is complementary to any other therapy.
It is the transfer of subtle healing energies from the Divine Source to the person in need. The nature of each healing and of the vibrations transmitted are specific to the recipient's readiness to receive. Each healing session is unique in itself. The healer’s intention is to assist the recipient’s own inner healing ability. While the person who receives the healing need not hold any spiritual or religious beliefs, he or she must, on some level, be open to receiving this healing energy. Distinctions of faith, culture and belief systems are irrelevant. No affirmation of religious faith is required of the healing recipient.
By the laying-on of hands, by attunement through meditation and prayer, whether or not in the presence of the healing recipient, a healer seeks to induce a beneficial effect upon a healing recipient’s life force at all levels of existence.
Members of Ottawa Spiritual Pathways Centre believe that this healing energy comes from a spiritual source. Some choose to call this source God, Universal Energy, the Creator of Love, while others call it by whatever name fits their personal philosophical or religious beliefs.
