On the future Schools of Healing

These schools of healing are not to be developed before the close of this century. There has to be a growing synthesis of the techniques of such schools, which embody:

  • Psychological adjustments and healing
  • Magnetic healing
  • The best of the allopathic and homeopathic techniques, with which we must not dispense
  • Surgical healing in its modern forms
  • Electro-therapeutics
  • Water-therapy
  • Healing by colour, sound and radiation
  • Preventive medicine
  • The essential practices of osteopathy and chiropractic
  • Scientific neurology and psychiatry
  • The cure of obsessions and mental diseases
  • The care of the eyes and ears
  • Voice culture
  • Mental and faith healing
  • Soul alignment and contact

and many other processes and procedures which belong to the healing art.

The period is coming in which we will pass through a cycle in which we will garner the fruit of the ages; and then with the best that the past can confer upon us, we will inaugurate those new enterprises which will speed humanity upon its way.

Among these new enterprises the healing art will be the foremost, because the most necessary. When a group can function together with impersonality as a unit and with true interplay of love, such a group can then begin to do some definite healing work.

There will then come the forming of subsidiary groups to be taught and developed by the members of the pioneer healing groups, under soul instruction. These subsidiary groups will work under group direction for the healing of people.

The exoteric developments of the New Age healing will grow out of the above. There will be eventually, let us hope, hundreds and thousands of groups all over the world who will express this new attitude to healing, who will be bound together by their common knowledge and aims, but who will all express this to the best of their ability in their own peculiar field, in their own peculiar way and with their own peculiar terminology.

It is the subjective life unity that is of interest to the teachers on the inner side of life, and the production of a network of true healers all over the world.

The Third Seed Group of Magnetic Healers

The third seed group is that of the Magnetic Healers. These healers have no relation to the work of the so-called magnetic healers of today. They work intelligently with the vital forces of the etheric body. Much of their work is dealt with in the fourth volume of A Treatise on the Seven Rays. This group of healers must bring about the right healing of the personalities of individuals in all aspects of their nature. The work to be done is that of the intelligent transmission of energy to various parts of the nature—mental, emotional and physical—through the right organisation and circulation of force. Present day healers should endeavour to break loose from the modern and traditional ideas as to healing; they should recognise the stupendous fact that healing must eventually be carried forward by groups which will act as the intermediaries between the plane of spiritual energy (either soul energy, intuitional energy or will energy) and the patient or group of patients. Note this last point. The group idea must always be remembered by the students as they work; they must not work as individuals but as units in a coherent whole. This will distinguish the New Age methods from the past, for the work will be group work and, usually, for a group. Magnetic healers must learn to work as souls and not as individuals. They must learn to communicate healing energy from the reservoir of living force to the patient or patients.

from Discipleship in the New Age Vol 1 page 38

Every initiate is a magnetic healer. This is a statement of fact. Though the members of the Hierarchy have each of Them Their duly appointed functions and Their planned activity (dependent upon Ray, upon race and upon dedication) there is one activity which They share in common and that is the power to heal. Their ability to act as magnetic healers works out in various ways, predominantly in the realm of psychological readjustments and psychic disentanglements, and—only incidentally and as a result of the two above activities—in the processes of bodily healing. You will note from the above, that the healing work done by the initiate members of the Great White Lodge is threefold—psychological, bringing in the soul; psychic, releasing the lower psychic nature from illusion so that the psyche or soul can have full sway; physical, as the result of the inner psychological and psychic adjustments.

This triple healing activity is intended to be the objective of all groups working as this third group, the magnetic healers, should work; thus will be brought about an emergence of hierarchical effort into outer activity.

Extract from a Statement by the Tibetan

Suffice it to say, that I am a Tibetan disciple of a certain degree, and this tells you but little, for all are disciples from the humblest aspirant up to, and beyond, the Christ Himself.

I am a brother of yours, who has travelled a little longer upon the Path than has the average student, and has therefore incurred greater responsibilities. I am one who has wrestled and fought his way into a greater measure of light than has the aspirant who will read this article, and I must therefore act as a transmitter of the light, no matter what the cost.

My work is to teach and spread the knowledge of the Ageless Wisdom wherever I can find a response, and I have been doing this for many years.

The books that I have written are sent out with no claim for their acceptance. They may, or may not, be correct, true and useful. It is for you to ascertain their truth by right practice and by the exercise of the intuition.

If they present truth in such a way that it follows sequentially upon that already offered in the world teachings, if the information given raises the aspiration and the will-to-serve from the plane of the emotions to that of the mind (the plane whereon the Masters can be found) then they will have served their purpose.

If the teaching conveyed calls forth a response from the illumined mind of the worker in the world, and brings a flashing forth of his intuition, then let that teaching be accepted. But not otherwise. If the statements meet with eventual corroboration, or are deemed true under the test of the Law of Correspondences, then that is well and good. But should this not be so, let not the student accept what is said.
