Esoteric Healing - Chapter VIII - The Laws and Rules Enumerated and Applied
Healers on the second, third and fifth rays use more generally the mode of laying on of hands or magnetic healing. This term applies to the direct act of laying on of hands upon the patient's physical body, and not to the action of the hands in the second method, when the hands are immersed in the etheric body of the patient and are definitely working in etheric matter. Healers on the first, fourth and seventh rays use the mode of "hand immersion," as it is sometimes called. The sixth ray healer is rare and is successful only when highly developed; he will then use both methods interchangeably.

All spiritually advanced healers use both hands. Healers are, however, advised first of all to ascertain their ray, and then to perfect themselves in the type or mode of healing best suited to that ray; then, when adequately efficient and able to use facility and skill, they can add the mode of healing which is not so adaptable to their ray type. People on the sixth ray are advised to abstain from the healing art until they have arrived (consciously) at the [651] initiate stage. When both modes of magnetic healing have been mastered, the healer may employ both alternately in the act of healing, or he may use the mode of magnetic passes first so as to set up a changed activity in the diseased area, and then finally use a definite laying on of hands.

At the close of the healing period the "sealing of the triangle" takes place. The energy, hitherto passing into the hands through the ajna center from the brain, is withdrawn into the ajna center, and from thence directed - by an act of the will - to the soul. The healing force is literally "turned off" and redirected; it is no longer available.

During the entire period of healing the healer says nothing. He is making no affirmation and uses no healing mantram. The process outlined here is that of the effect of energy or soul potency playing upon force. This is a point to be emphasized. The task of the healer is to preserve an attitude of intense concentration upon the triangle "existing in living lines of energy" (as it has been called) within his own fourfold aura - health aura, etheric body, astral body and mental body. This he must preserve intact and stable for the entire period of healing. Soul-heart-brain must be linked in such a "lighted" manner that a true clairvoyant would see a brilliant triangle in the healer's aura; the highest point of the triangle (that of the soul) he might fail to see unless he were himself highly developed, but he could not fail to see the signs of it in the inflowing energy to the heart and from the heart to the brain. The work done is silent work. There is therefore no loss of power at any time, as there always is through the spoken word or affirmation. It is not possible to hold the triangle geometrically correct and magnetically polarized if there is any sound made by the healer. This presupposes an advanced stage of alignment and of concentration and will [652] indicate to you some of the lines along which the healer's training should go.

This mode of healing "cures disease or increases the evil state, according to the knowledge of the healer." In some respects (though this is a stage of healing which is not the highest) it is nevertheless the one most responsible because, in the case of radiatory healing, the soul of the patient is working in cooperation with the healer and it is the soul then which has the major responsibility. In magnetic healing, the healer needs to cooperate closely with the patient's physician or surgeon dealing with the case; he will supply the technical knowledge, and thus prevent the healer from making mistakes.

Where death is definitely indicated and the "signs of death" are noted by both the doctor and the healer, the healer has not need to stop his work. By continuing it, he may increase the evil condition, but will nevertheless be aiding the patient by hastening normally the act of dying. The old proverb is basically not true in all cases, that "where there is life there is hope." Life can and often is prolonged after the will of the soul is towards the withdrawal of the soul life; the life of the atoms of the lunar lords can be fostered for a long time, and this greatly distresses the spiritual man who is aware of the process and the intent of his soul. What is kept alive is the physical body, but the interest of the true man is no longer focused there.

There inevitably comes a point, for instance in the case of malignant disease, where the physician knows that it simply is a question of time, and the spiritual healer can learn to recognize the same signs. Then, instead of the present silence on the part of both healer and doctor, where the patient is concerned, this remaining time will be employed (if the patient's faculties permit) with due preparation for the "beneficent and happy withdrawal" of the soul; the [653] patient's family and friends will share in the preparation. In the early stages of the new world religion, this attitude towards death will be inculcated. An entirely new concept of death, with the emphasis upon conscious withdrawal, will be taught, and funeral services, or rather the crematory services, will be joyous events because their emphasis will be upon release and return.

The magnetic work, however, will cure if the patient's destiny indicates it, if the soul intends to prolong the life cycle unexpectedly in order to fulfil some duty, or if the patient is very far advanced spiritually and the Hierarchy requires his services for a longer term.
