These processes are called by many names: Psychic Healing, Reiki, Laying on Hands, Chakra Healing or Balancing. Of course, the techniques are different with each method. But the basic premise remains the same.
Channeling and Psychic Surgery
This is another aspect of Psychic Healing. However, this does not use Earth Energy, but rather uses the energy body of the Healer as a channel or medium of transfer on a very different level. The Healer uses this energy body to cause Healing spirit bodies to enter into our plane of existence and heal people in need.
Channeling can be used to gain access to information on the spiritual plane of existence and information from 'dead' people.Psychic Surgery involves a process of healing physical problems of people via surgery carried out by spirits. Often, this can be a painless and non-invasive experience.
All these experiences, as with all the spiritual based experiences, are subject to hoaxes, frauds and criticisms. Therefore it pays to check the credentials of such Psychic Healers. If a healer intends to solve your problem with one or two visits, then he/she is not interested in fleecing you for money. This, of course, is different for chronic problems.
It has also been found, that people with acute problems will often believe anything. This is called the "Placebo Effect" where an individual believes himself/herself to be cured simply because he wants to be cured this way. Self-healing is also a plausible answer for so many illnesses being cured.
