A Closer LookFeatureAt EnergyHealingEnergy Healing: the Practical Workbook is written from thespiritual perspective that acknowledges both the unique essenceof every person and their innate capacity for healing throughthe power of their spirit, or life-force. The book encourages thereader to explore their spiritual nature and how it relates tobeing a clear channel for healing through body, mind and soul.Energy Healing: The Practical Workbook is a comprehensive resource for healerswho want to discover and understand more about energy healing and energyflows, written by experienced NFSH (National Federation of Spiritual Healers)practitioner, Christina Mark. Christina trained as a nurse in the 1960s. She beganto question why people became ill, as she explains: “I wanted to know more aboutthe body and the mind as it seemed to me that the people who were very ill had gonethrough a lot of stress in their lives and I wanted to investigate to see if there was adeeper connection between the body and the mind.“I looked into acupuncture and homeopathy and eventually had a healing treatmentmyself. It really worked and I felt so peaceful; I felt as if the treatment went so deepinto my system. My overall health began to improve both physically and mentallyfollowing further healing treatments, and I began to practice giving healing to familyand friends in the 1980s - in fact, my first patient was my beloved dog, Jamie, whohad a very bad cough. After the treatment the cough disappeared, never to return. Itook training courses with the National Federation of Spiritual Healers and became aregistered healing practitioner in 1998.“In 2000 I began to deliver workshops in health and healing with a group of peoplewho became the core members of the Healing Group, which now, 9 years later, meetstwice a month in the Chaplaincy Centre of the main hospital in the Scottish Borders,to offer healing to the staff, patients and general public.“I became a registered tutor with the NFSH in 2003, and deliver courses on SpiritualHealing on a regular basis, as well as organising the Healing Group Sessions andworking as a Ward Visitor with patients in the Palliative CareUnit of the Hospital.”Christina published Energy Healing: The Practical Workbook in 2008. It is ahands-on book that equips the reader with clear guidelines about the processof spiritual healing. Christina explained: “The idea for the book came from a friend.As a trained nurse with experience working in the NHS, as well as my experience asa Tutor in Further Education, supported by many years of spiritual education withthe Beshara School, my friend believed that I had been given the right ingredientsto produce a book about the essential principles and practice of Spiritual Healing.Writing the book was a real learning process and I needed a lot of help, fromprofessional editors and ultimately from my husband, Paul, in order to complete it.“I believe that everyone has the potential to be a healing practitioner; it is a universalgift that some people develop and others don’t. I believe that you can help to developyour gift by following a training programme, such as the ones offered for example bythe NFSH/Healing Trust. I do not believe that anyone can heal anyone else but thatwe all have the capacity to heal ourselves, given the right support, whether throughconventional or complementary therapies. However Spiritual Healing is not really atherapy but rather a raising of awareness of the body, mind and soul and the role ofthe Healing Practitioner is to act as a support to the patient in that process.”Energy Healing: The Practical Workbook can be bought from Amazon for £12.99.Aspire would like to encourage our readers to find out more about the energywe have inside us, which is why we have awarded Christina and her book aCertificate of Recognition for Spiritual Development.
