This process is wisely and safely carried out over a long period of time and—returning to our theme of health and of disease—when consummated, perfect physical health is the result; in the interim process of adjustment and of change, the reverse is frequently the case. The danger involved in a large number of physical ills can be traced to the condition of the centers, to the interplay or their lack of interplay, to an undeveloped condition, unawakened and sluggish, and to an overstimulation or an unbalanced activity. If one center is prematurely awakened, it is frequently at the expense of other centers.
When life or energy flows unimpeded and through right direction to its precipitation (the related gland), then the form responds and ill health disappears.
This is a basic law in healing and concerns the true art of relating Spiritual energy with form life, and upon this the health and the vitality of the organs depend. Therefore we come to the next rule which the healer has to master. This is concisely expressed, and those phrases which convey instruction must be understood and applied intelligently.
Let the healer concentrate the needed energy within the needed center.
Let that center correspond to the center which has need.
Let the two synchronise and together augment force.
Thus shall the waiting form be balanced in its work.
Thus shall the two and the one, under right direction, heal.
It will be obvious to you, therefore, that healers at the present time (I refer not here to the medical profession but to the multitude of the many schools of thought) have not yet got back to the basic factor, in spite of all their talk anent love being the healing force. They are in reality emphasising and dealing with the motive which impels the healer to ply his healing art. They are concerned with the instrumentality whereby contact can be made with the patient to be healed. That contact must ever be established in Love—fresh, compelling and selfless. But once that relation is established, the healer must grasp the fact that, as far as he is concerned, he must work scientifically; he must apply knowledge and—after right diagnosis, after right modern therapeutic methods, after due common sense, which includes the best that the tried science of medicine can give—he must then begin to work through his own center, putting it en rapport with the center in the patient which governs the distressed area or diseased organ.
As he thus works, the energy which loving intent and skilled knowledge has tapped and brought in is not permitted (during the healing process) to stimulate or affect the healer's own related glands or produce action in the connected area of his own body. The healer must learn to insulate himself from the energy to be used on behalf of the patient. He blends it with the energy of the patient's center, governing the diseased area; the allied gland is then doubly energised (or lessened, as the case may be and diagnosis requires), and the blood stream releases into the diseased tissue that which is needed to cure or prevent the growth of the disease.
You have, therefore, the healer, the patient and the reservoir of Spiritual energy, plus the scientific process of bringing all three into a close and healing rapport. This is done via the center concerned in the equipment of the patient, the corresponding center in the equipment of the healer, and the direction (by an act of the will of the healer or of the healing group) of the united streams of required specific energy to the area diseased. This is usually done via the related gland, though it is not always so.
A careful diagnosis of the disease, based on the ascertained outer symptoms, will be simplified to this extent that, once the organ involved is known and thus isolated, the center in the Etheric body which is in closest relation to it will be subjected to methods of occult healing, though the ordinary, ameliorative, medical or surgical methods will not be withheld.
