Excerpts from a lecture by Yogi Bhajan on 9/16/99
You have to understand the process of healing in the Age of Aquarius. You have to know how to feed the psyche. You have to know your touch is as good as God’s touch. It is not sensual, sexual, or social. It is a healer’s touch. You have to beam the psyche into the being of a person to make it realistic. What will give the healing is the flow of your soul energy. We call it “psychic flow.” It belongs to your inner self. Please understand that healing is a process.
First of all, before you touch anybody, you have to make sure that you are as pure as possible. As a chiropractor, you need to purify your being before touching your patient, or else you function just like a machine—crick, crick, crack, crack, and the matter ends. If you don’t purify yourself and heal yourself of all the inner duality, negativity can prevail through the flow of the psyche. If this is the case, we stop one disease temporarily, but ultimately cause permanent disease.
Whether you are a medical doctor or a chiropractor, or other type of healer, life has a challenge. And that challenge is, you have to be egoless. You have to just become, without self, a healer, or a doctor, at that moment, for that purpose, that mission. You cannot have any deviation. If you deviate, then your psyche will interlock with the patient’s psyche. You can interlock the body—that I understand. You can tune into the mind, I can understand that. You can tune in the spirit, that I can understand. But if you do not tune into the psyche, your entire healing will be useless.
Healing is a process of personal super divinity. It is a power of touch. You should be so prayerful and pure, and your touch should be so powerful and impactful, that the entire body of another person may change to the desirable end results. Without this, as healers, we get burnt out. That’s why a lot of people do not last long in the health and healing professions.
Your mind should be fresh and beautiful. If your domestic atmosphere is one of fighting, quarreling, and negation, it will interfere in the process of your healing, because your psyche will not penetrate and reach the target.
You are a cause, not an effect. You cause the charge to affect healing and if your charge is very low-grade voltage, and your psyche is not fully with you, the effect will be very low-grade, too.
As a healer the first thing to tell every patient is to breathe deeply. Help your patients get rid of shallow breathing. Shallow breathing means no oxygen, no workload-carrying habits, no endurance, no patience.
Secondly, wash your hands after seeing each patient. This is not only for hygiene, but also to change the energy.
When you finish with a patient you should take a break and resettle yourself. It is not about how many people you see each day, it is about how many people you heal. There is a difference between healing and seeing.
Healing is nothing but the play of one’s personal psyche. It comes from dedication and devotion. It comes from the highest state of purity, and it comes from the power which is God. It’s not what you think it is. It is a caliber to collaborate with the flow of the psyche of two.
