Healing Hands


All of my life, I have been apprehensive about putting my hands on people. I never made a conscious note of it, just a weird apprehension I have.

First of all, please let me explain that I am a very level-headed person, and my natural reaction is to balk at the following, but repetition of results has me wondering.

The first experience was when my son's fish became sick. For some bizarre reason I had the compulsion (when no one was looking) to put my hands close to the tank (not ON the tank, for some reason, I did not want to make physical contact, just hover an inch or so above). I did this over and over when the fish became sick, and the fish didn't become a "floater" for many months. I eventually decided that (if for some crazy reason I was actually responsible for what was happening) the fish just needed to be let go, so I quit, and the fish passed on.

In secret, I have tried the above with ailing cats, small dogs, small animals, that belong to myself and to relatives and friends. This (or coincidence) has brought similar results to the animals.

I finally confided in my husband about this, and he is very open-minded and supportive, but we speak to no one about it. He has trouble with his back, and I have brought him relief by doing the above. I have occasionally used it on my kids when they are asleep for colds, etc.

Can anyone give me some perspective as to what may be going on here?

Note: Over the past 8 years or so, my belief system has changed more to what I will call a "Buddhist-like" view of the world, but not necessarily congruent with the above experiences.

Just happen to read this "ramdom" story and read your comment. You should post this story as your spiritual experience, that way others can comment and give there advice. All of the things you mention happen to a lot of people, it's just "spirit" way of getting our attention.
We all have Guides and Angels watching over us and sometimes they are allowed to intervene when we are about to get into a "jam" 😊

All my life I have this feeling that I was given a special mission in this world. I'm 36 years old and all these years I have tried to dismiss this strange feeling that I have this "special gift". I wish someone can help me and explain what's going on. Through the years I have so many extraordinary experiences that I can't logically explain. Here are some of those experiences: 1.Hearing voices- my friend says I might have a vitamin B deficiency that's why, but how do you explain this: when my exhusband came home onetime and I confronted him where he's been, he lied but I heard a voice whispering "ask him who is the lady beside him at the casino" I did and he was surprised and admitted it. This was not the only time I heard this voice. 2. Invisible healing force- I had a hard time sleeping that night my backpain is killing me and I cried and prayed to God that I hope the pain would go away. Finally I was able to get my sleep and I suddenly woke up around 3am my body shaking like a vibrator was attached on my bed, felt like a suction was attached to my body sucking the body pain and then suddenly I felt so light and rejuvenated. 3. White ball of fire- woke up at 4am to pee and as I walk outside the room I saw a ball of white light floating in the air it froze when it saw me and vanished. 4. Rapid eye- when I pray deeply and wholeheartedly specially the rosary, I experience rapid eye movement and I see things while my eyes are closed. I see an eye, a triangle, a man without a face, etc. 5. Healing hands- in my dream someone told me I can help my sister-in-law have a baby 'cause they've been trying so hard for 5years, so the next day I ask her to come to our house and had her lay down on our bed, got a baby oil and started praying I can't explain but something or someone guided my hand and I started massaging an area on her abdomen and my hands were so warm it was emitting heat. A month later, my sis in law announced she was possibly pregnant bec. Her period didn't come, 9 months later she gave birth to a healthy baby boy! Another healing experience (I feel I'm getting stronger each day) that night before we retired to sleep my live-in partner complained of pain in his abdomen like a hyper acidity attack. In the morning he asked me if I knew what I did he said that he was having trouble sleeping due to the pain and at around 3am I suddenly placed my hand on his abdomen and it felt so warm like it was emitting heat. As I was moving may palm he felt something moving inside his belly like a mass or a ball. The mass followed the movement of my hand and what's amazing is that my hand barely touched his skin! The next morning he felt relieved I woke up and didn't know what happened. 6. Dead people follow me- so many times is see spirits around and they follow me home, they scare me so much but I just talk to them and try to help them pray and they eventually go away. There was this one time when I went to the wake of a friends husband who died a violent death. As I sat down with my friends, I had this strange tingling feeling on my spine and I'm feeling light headed. At the back of my head I heard a voice saying, " I just want to say something to my wife" and so I said yes and then suddenly I felt this overwhelming emotion my heart was heavy and sad. I can't explain it, I was half aware and conscious of what I'm doing but have no complete control of myself. I just stood up and walk towards my friend/widow and felt the urge to kiss her tenderly on the cheek and heard myself utter the words "Sorry". My friend cried, and said to me afterwards that that's how her husband kissed her when he's asking for forgiveness. 7. Invisible protector- Golf ball passing a few inches away from my face had I not been delayed a few seconds by my shoe strings it could have hit me, smoking hot cooking oil got spilled on my hand while cooking and nothing happened, no pain no skin damage! I can also be an electric conductor electric current can pass through my fingers and be emitted through my other fingers but I don't know the amount of voltage my body can tolerate, even noticed light bulbs flickering when I pass by. These are some of the things I have been experiencing. It happens randomly and I have no control over it. I just want to relate and have someone to atleast say, "it's okey you're not crazy" and then maybe somehow find answers too. Thanks and God Bless!

I personally promise you that no relationship, no religion and no sacrifice shall top the power of the SPIRIT!

Ask for you forgiveness, and ask for HIS power to be vested in you and your hand, you will move mountains then only (literally).

One last thing: YOU MUST BELIEVE!

last night I prayed and strongly visualised my wifes dad who recently passed away and pleaded with him to speak to her in her dream sleep and tell her that he is ok and at peace now.
Today she told me without my prompting her that she saw her dad last night while asleep in a "sketcky" format and he told her "i,m allright"
Is this proof that I have a spiritual gift or can many people make this occur if they have faith it "will happen"?

I feel that I have either the healing hands or the holy spirit gifts how can I learn which one it is or could it be both?

I agree with above with vagabondfaith. You have a gift blessed from God, he has chosen you to become an instument (tool) of his to do his work here on earth to help by healing with your hands.
Put them to use when you are ready, if you want to know more or learn more do what I do just ask the man from above, or search the net there are lots of helpful information out there.

Take care

God Bless

Hi Maura. I'm actually a member of the other site. but I started browsing through this one and came across your posting.

I just submitted a post to the other site that probably won't get published until tomorrow. I was saying that I have felt deep down inside that I have the power to heal someone with my hands. I had several visions and one in particular that stands out. I won't get into the full text of it but, to keep it short, a baby was killed and I walked over to the baby, put my hand on his forehead and he began to cry. I feel this power inside of me.

I get my "gifts" (I have many) from my father. I remember once when I was a young young child my parents and I went to a house in New Jersey. I never knew why until I got older. My dad went to heal someone. Whoever it was (I think a family member) had some demonic spirit inside of him. All I know is we were there a short time and left. Once a year my dad would get a thank you card from these people.

Anyway, I think I have that gift but I'm not positive. How did you know to put your hand by the fish tank? How can I find out?

Oh yeah, my dog that is deceased now had a stroke and the Dr. Told us she wouldn't make it another month. My dad came over and put his hand on her head. He looked up, said a short prayer and then did a "Happy Dance" with her. I was laughing because the song was from the movie Beetlejuice. I asked my dad what happened and he said that she would be fine. She lived another 3 years and died at 17 years old of natural causes!

well you have quite something there.
Now its up to you if you want to follow the way of the healer wich includes the responsability of healing people that come for your aid.
Or just simply keep it quiet and only let a few like your family know it and use this power for your own interests.

We are so lucky to have so many systems of healing
To choose from. When I was guided to heal and attune others to reiki, I really like the fact that the energy it self is guided by the higher power or REI which is wisdom that comes from god which is higherself and is the god-consciousness or all knowing. It guides the ki which is universal energy which is in every lving thing. Since its guided by the higher power it can do no harm. Since the practitioner is not doing the
Healing its also much easier for the ego to stay
Out of the way and allow the presence of God to
Clearly shine Through.
Reiki is not a religion, while being spiritual, there isn't any belief system that comes along
With it, so anyone of any faith can learn and not
Feel like they are compromising there beliefs.
Im not trying to talk anyone into anything I just
Needed to get a better explanation of reiki and
What it does. Hope this helps. Many blessings
To all.

There is one true spirit of goodness and balance that can be found in not just one, but all spiritual belief systems. This goodness does not favor one belief system over another, but is universal.
It is when we avoid fostering sentiments akin to "my religion is better", or "my religion is right" that we can focus on the goodness in our personal, or any, belief system.
I have chosen personal spirituality over organized religion, simply because my personal experience with organized religion is that it often encourages fear to motivate it's followers. In following fear, we follow folly. It is when we let go of our fear and instead focus on spreading kindness and gentleness to our fellow man (and to ourselves) that we are truly free.

I have been reading the above comments by just in time, beautiful day, and crystaldart.
I can only speak from my experience and from what I believe to be true. I believe all gifts come from God and these gifts are not to really benefit you but to benefit others. If I have a healing gift then it is for me to help others not really to give me some kind of power trip. It is wonderful to use your gifts because the whole world needs them. We live in a very hurting world and there are so many who are suffering not only physically but spiritually. As a Christian we believe we have the answer. I f you want to listen to a really good source of spiritual teaching I can really recommend Word on Fire ministry with the famous Catholic Priest Father Robert Barron. Just Google Word of Fire and you will find him and tons of advice that will set you up for the rest of your life. This website is so excellent because it gives us all the opportunity to express the reality of the spiritual world. However we have to realise that God does not have a monopoly on the Spirit world. There are hoards of other spirits flying around and we have the free choice to try them all out. For what its worth in my opinion, God is the best by a long streak. I have found this out after 70 years of battling it out in this extraordinary life that we were handed on a plate.

Of many natural gifts a person can have, a healing hand is indeed a wonderful and a pioneer among all. Its Happy to hear you have them.

In spirituality its quite normal. But the spiritual side of these things is not as simple as it seems. There is always an other side to these things. If you are not aware, these healing tenures could have an adverse effect on you. So, please find a good Guidance in this regard from someone who has Genuine Spiritual Experience and who can correct you in this path.

God's kindness be with all.

Thanks to all for your input and insights. I do appreciate it! It feels good to finally be able to discuss this, and receive commentary on it in a non-judgemental forum. Thank you:)

Hi, I loved your stories! Found them inspiring. Sounds like you listed to your inner light. Some people are natural healers that use their speen in healing, Some use Prana/Chi etc, some magnetic, some faith healers, or us prayer of agreement.
One reader indicated: Reiki,"this was started by Mikao Usui", whom is believed to be a Buddhist.
He refers to Tandan/aka Dantai in meditation where energy (spirit,Chi/Qi/prana/life force/bio plasma/Emf is stored. Tandan serves as a phys grding point. You manipulated subtle energy that is in you and around you. Which cleared conjestions in the animals and brought them to a place of balance and wholeness,"Chi balance". You might want to look at Chinese Alchemy and Qigong as to more explanations. Your husbands back will take more time since it requires clearing/healng and resetting the Auric template (Casual body) =you might try clearing lower chakra With your intent & fill with energy where you are guided to, set protectiont end over spouse, especially hurt sites. Healing Touch & Theraputic Touch have hands on teaching/or check out Reiki Orig hand bk by Mikao Usui. You mentioned you felt directed off body=this is very good since it can go into 3 Lower chakras, affecting Casual body more directly. Blessing to you and yours

It is wonderful to hear that you have this gift. In the Bible it says that the gifts and callings of God are without repentance so you do not have to be a devout christian to have spiritual gifts. It would be great if you realized that what you possess is a gift from God. Just as our life had nothing to do with us wanting it, it just happened. God allowed it and has a wonderful plan for your life and for mine. We just need to want to be used and also to get to know the Giver. I would say as a Christian that it would be a good idea to look for the truth. The Truth is there for all who really want it. We just have to ask and God being an extremely loving God will go out of His way to let you know. That is my experience. I am not so sure who reiki is but maybe he can help too. Just check these ideas out and see what really works. Any way God bless you. Keep in touch on this website or personally to my email address. Michaeljaffrayk [at]

You need to learn reiki. Being the natural healer
You are,, reiki will help you to make your healing
Abilities not only stronger but will teach you
How and where to place your hands for whatever
You are doing. It will teach you symbols to use
Like distance healing and emotional and mental
Healing. I have a friend, her husband was in bad
Shape they thought he was dying in hospital but
She gave him energy and when she did she talked
To his higher self and said I'm sending you this
Energy to do with it what you want if you pass
You can use it for that,, or if you decide to stay
You can use it to stay. So you can use your healing
Energy even if they are passing. They will take the
Energy also to soothe and make there journey more
Comfortable. This is why reiki healing is used in
Hospice also.

I hope this helps you. Many blessings to you.
