Body and Mind Spiritual Healing

Humans are fragile beings. They get hurt very easily. When the body gets hurt, science comes to the rescue but not all the wounds can be healed with surgical procedures and medicines. Some wounds are deeper than the others and you can’t see them with the naked eye. The wounds that result from emotional traumas and setbacks do not show on the outer skin, it’s the mind and the soul that bear the weight of these injuries. When the soul gets injured the body aches as well and it needs more than medicines to get better and the symptoms won’t go away like headaches. 

Spiritual healing is curing the ailments that no eye can see. It is a process to help heal physical, psychological and spiritual ills. Since spirituality and religion go hand in hand, it is believed that most illnesses when people get disconnected from divinity. Divine is the source of all energy and the disconnection from this energy shows itself in the form of physical and mental distresses and diseases.

Shakti Gawain, an author, and a teacher says: “Spiritual healing occurs as we begin to consciously reconnect with our essential being – the wise, loving, powerful, creative entity that we are at our core”. 
Body and mind can be healed spiritually through various procedures. Some of these procedures are common to all cultures while some others are prevalent in some cultures, societies, and religions. The most common types of spiritual healing are:

1-    Physical healing – involves curing the physical symptoms
2-    Emotional healing – involves dealing with emotional distresses
3-    Mental healing – involves curing mental traumas
4-    Soul healing – involves healing the deeply embedded wounds which can be of emotional and mental nature
5-    Holistic healing – involves the healing of the body, heart, mind, and soul
