Rookie Mistakes in Spiritual Healing

Success in spiritual healing is warranted only as we find and follow our own pace. Whether a pro or a rookie, here are six pitfalls to avoid when practicing spiritual healing.

  1. Gunning the start. Running headstrong, for example into an intense episode of prayer, will become tiresome quickly. Spiritual healing is a job, not a quiz or luck of the draw; it requires a balance of hard work, prayer, study, and practice, all done at a reasonable pace.
  2. Taking spiritual healing too seriously. A purist approach to spiritual healing makes one vulnerable to addiction, susceptible to going through the motions without living in the moment, enjoying the work, and keeping the inspiration.
  3. Trying to outsmart the elements of everyday life. Spiritual healing loses its force if it’s used to avoid life’s demands. Spiritual healers do not live an aloof eccentric existence. Spiritual prayer and work naturally forms multifarious relationships that coincidentally expand the impact of spiritual healing.
  4. Self-sabotaging the game plan. Spiritual healing is happening, similar to tectonic earth movement is happening, although its effects are unseen most of the time. Don’t interrupt the healing activity by forcing a human ideology.
  5. Assuming you are more spiritually minded than you really are. This is seen in extreme behavior—seen by outsiders as jaded and indefensible behavior. Spiritual healing is a step by step modality paralleling a practical Love and soulful wisdom. Even an epic healing of a monstrous problem does not qualify for the absence of humility and obedience to the law of progress.
  6. Attempting to use spiritual healing to extend mortality or materialist views. Spiritual healing manifests the essence of spirituality, indescribably ascending mortality, consumption, lack, material conservatism. Spiritual healing isn’t “used” but is more so tapped into, completely available to everyone, no matter what their ethnicity, background, or faith.

Spiritual activist and healer, Mary Baker Eddy, basically wrote, “I have healed hopeless physiological disease, and advanced the dying to life and health through the understanding of God as the only Life. It is backwards to believe that anything can overpower omnipotent and eternal Life. This Life must be brought to light by the understanding that there is no death, as well as by other graces of Spirit. We must begin however, with the more simple demonstrations of control, and the sooner we begin the better. The final demonstration takes time for its accomplishment. When walking, we are guided by the eye. We look before our feet, and if we are wise, we look beyond a single step in the line of spiritual advancement.” (21st Century Science and Health)

    This is an excellent page, and all the pitfalls it mentions are for real.

    The biggest mistake is failing to remember that God’s will will always be done. To play God, even with the best of intentions, is never good. I’m a healer, and I know that I don’t do anything. It all comes from a higher power.

    These mistakes can be seen on spiritual healing. In short I would say that spiritual healing is not an easy task to do. It can only be achieved by honesty, hard working and with dedication.
