Healing is Our Responsibilityby: Frank Schuster
HEALING IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY
How does healing occur? One answer is through prayer. What happens when we pray? The act of prayer is mental and involves our thought energy directed toward God. Does God then “hear” the prayer and then act independently to answer? I think not. If healing is to occur, it is through the one praying or acting prayerfully. The willing spirit of the person being prayed for also works in this activity. Of course, God is a part of the healing equation, giving impetus to the process. I submit that it takes all three entities to accomplish the healing act.
The difficulty is that we rely on God to accomplish the healing. The opposite may be true - that God is ever ready to help you and me do the work. We are God’s hands and feet in the physical world. We must accept this responsibility; that’s why we are here – to learn and to demonstrate that we are indeed one with each other and one with God. By accepting this responsibility, we can be the answer to a prayer. How often have you heard the words, “I’ll pray for you.” And the speaker quickly disappears never again to even mention the situation requiring healing.
So, what are we to do? My thoughts turn to the act of touching. Touch conveys so much to the one under duress. I don’t mean to imply that we should not pray, but I am suggesting that a prayer, given as a loving intent toward a person in need, involves our full being – spiritual, mental, emotional and physical. A prayer generates a spiritual arrangement between God, you and the recipient. God’s healing energy flows through you to the recipient. What better way to demonstrate this than with our hands? We are God’s hands both literally and figuratively. God works miracles through our hands in a loving touch. When we touch another with a loving intent to heal, something happens, and that is healing!
The exemplary figure in history that demonstrated this was Jesus. From studying the New Testament I have come to believe that the most significant way in which the Good News was communicated was through touch healing. These writings only scratch the surface in describing Jesus’ healing work. Clearly, he taught the disciples how to heal with a loving touch and they continued his example by healing people as they went about spreading the Good News. It was primarily for this reason that the early church grew rapidly. They were known for how they loved one another.
In the ensuing years, this healing work ceased. One can only speculate on the reasons. Some say that healing was a special gift of God only to the “early” church leaders. Others say it was intentionally de-emphasized in favor of a centralized control of the church. Others say it was lost since no written instructions were handed down. Likely, all of these played a role.
My interest focuses on why there were no written instructions for healing. I think it was intentional in the sense that it was known that we have the power to heal. All that is necessary is a belief and realization that you can develop the gift of healing. Any intuitively derived method inspired by a loving intent will do. It then follows that no one person could claim ownership of a methodology and thereby profit or otherwise control its use. In other words, you do not have to be a guru to practice touch healing.
Is there a method that you can learn and practice with minimal effort and cost? I am happy to report that the answer is an unqualified, “yes”. I would like to suggest a relatively simple yet powerful technique called Bio-Touch TM. Bio-Touch TM is a simple, hands-on healing technique that can be used to address all types of health concerns. We use the first two fingers of both hands to lightly touch specific points on the body. The combination of correct points and light touch seems to enhance the body's natural healing ability. Healing takes place, as the body’s own inherent healing ability is subtly motivated. In time, many permanent ailments begin to correct themselves. Bio-Touch TM is found to be effective with pain, illness and stress-related conditions. It does not purport to take the place of standard medical treatment.
So how does it work? Well, if you ask any of the practitioners they will tell you, "We don't know. The body heals itself, and we 'Just Touch.'" Certainly, there are many theories about how light touch facilitates healing. You can ask a scientist, a medical doctor, a Christian, or a child, and they will each give you a different idea. But it is a guarantee that with Bio-Touch TM they can all learn the points and will be equally effective, whatever their personal beliefs may be, the very first time they touch another person.
The Bio-Touch TM technique can be used in conjunction with conventional healthcare treatments. It can be easily learned and effectively used by anyone with results the same as experienced practitioners. Recipients have been both refreshed and inspired by its simplicity and effectiveness.
Experience this beautiful touch-healing technique, complementary to standard medical treatment. A light touch on the skin at specific points on the body produces a wonderful sense of relaxation and enhances the body's natural healing ability. It is a wonderful way to express loving concern to another. Group presentations and classes can be arranged at churches or other locations.
The Tucson-based IFBM offers sessions, classes and public speakers demonstrating this very simple technique. Located at 5634 East Pima Street, Tucson, AZ, IFBM is an educational, charitable organization whose goals are fulfilled through demonstrating and teaching the Bio-Touch TM technique. Phone: 323-7951.
