From the Harry Edwards Healing Sanctuary:
Spiritual Healing is the simple process of channelling divine healing energy through a healer to an individual. Healing can be given in person through contact healing or alternatively, when the individual is not present, known as distant healing.
From the Exeter Spiritualist Church:
There is a tendency for people to think that Spiritualist Healing is only done through faith or belief of the person requiring this form of healing. This is not true. Small children and animals do not know what faith is, yet they receive healing in the same way as everyone else. The only requirement a patient should have is a respect for themselves and an open mind about the healerís capability to be a channel for the healing force.
