Cosmic Healing

By Dr. Tan Kheng Khoo



What is cosmic healing? It is channeling of cosmic energy or prana to a patient who is sick or in pain, physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. A clairvoyant studying the patient can predict the onset of a disease three to six months before hand. He does this by looking at the auras and chakras of the patient. The healer will then pass cosmic energy or prana to the patient especially at that particular chakra, which is malfunctioning. He does this either by distant or contact healing. This is a process of channeling prana to the patient who is usually depleted of cosmic energy at that chakra, or the chakra is blocked and not functioning well. This is similar to the situation when a mother bestow upon her child when it hurts itself or has fallen sick. She heals by hugging the child or holding the child’s hand. The ingredients in cosmic healing are (1) the healer, (2) the patient (3) the venue and the (4) techniques.

Of course, the most important components are invisible: these are compassion, unconditional love and the purity of the healer. Does the patient need to have faith or belief in spiritual healing? No. Patients have been healed in spite of their non-belief and having no faith in the process. I have healed many patients without their knowledge (in distant healing). However, it helps a great deal if the patient believes and has faith in this type of healing.

The Healer
The healer must first and foremost know that he is not the healer; he is merely the conduit of the prana. At this point, he must realize that ego-conceit should never be allowed to surface, as conceit will block the conduit. In his desire to help he must have compassion and empathy. Common sense is the utmost requirement. As he is only the conduit, the channel must be continually purified of the five contaminants: ill will, greed, selfishness, pride and ignorance. He must be ever vigilant of these defilements, and one way of pursuing this goal is daily meditation. If he is charging for the healing he must not over charge. Neither should he over heal for the sake of the enumeration. He must limit himself to a certain number of hours per day, and a break from healing is a must. That means he must take at least a few days off after a period of continuous healing. Otherwise, the healer is likely to be burnt out. Self-protection with proper attuning and closure of the healing process is mandatory. Or else a whiplash may ensue. The whiplash may ultimately culminate in a state where the healer is being burnt out, if remedy is not instituted. The whiplash occurs as a lack of energy or complete inertia. Because of the healer’s ego, he must not be attached to the patient. Do not be proud when the patient has recovered. Do not be despondent when the patient has not responded to the healing. Do not cling to the patient. Discharge the patient when the time is ripe. He must drink water between each patient.

The healer must be in good psychological and physical health. He must be fully awake and fresh before the healing begins, and know when to stop (when he is getting tired). He must brush his teeth before the healing. There may be pain transference after the healing: so beware. However this pain will not last more than 2 days normally. There are many levels of healing. The following table demonstrates this fact.


Most of the Filipino and Taoist healers, masseurs (including Shiatsu), osteopaths, chiropractors, aroma therapists, etc use their own electro-magnetic energy. As their own magnetic energy is limited, these therapists become exhausted very quickly, especially when they are doing a good job. However, the spiritual healer does not get exhausted as he is continually supplied with cosmic energy (prana) from the atmosphere around him. That is why he always looks flush only when he is healing. This is because of the prana that is left behind by the patient, who does not take up 100% of the energy that the healer is channeling.

At the Physical Level IV most of the therapists can only work at the physical symptoms. Their tools are drugs, injections, surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, lasers and the human hands. When only hands are being used, the therapists used mainly their own electro-magnectic energy, which is easily exhaustible. The specialized physicians use mainly their skills, which they have acquired through many years of post-graduate studies and work. These therapists are very essential in the healing industry. In fact, all spiritual healers should use these physicians as their reference points. Facts, laboratory tests, x-ray investigations and other investigative procedures should be used to have a fuller picture of the patient, and they also should be used to monitor the progress or lack of progress of the healing process. No healer should ever tell the patient to abandon his physician. The healer is both alternative and complementary. The decision to leave the physician must be left entirely to the patient. In fact, the spiritual healer should be ideally a physician and a spiritually developed individual (e.g. priest). When a spiritual healer is not very developed he can only work at this physical level, thus utilizing only his own magnetic energy.

At the Astral level (III) the patient comes with an emotional problem. The therapists that can deal with this variety of patient are the spiritual healer, psychiatrist, psychologist and the general practitioner. The healer here has raised his vibration up one level, whereas the other three have learnt special skills to tackle the emotions of the patients. Then at level (II) of the mental body, the spiritual healer has raised his vibrations even higher. At this level (II), the psychiatrist does not necessarily have a higher vibration than his GP colleague does, but he has been trained to deal with such patients. Lastly, at level (I) in the Spiritual category, the best person here is the spiritual healer. Of course, a priest, a monk, a psychiatrist, a psychologist and even a GP may be able to deal with this type of patient, but he has to be spiritually very advanced. Now from this discussion, it is realized that the quality and the spiritual development of the healer are paramount. If a healer is ignorant of the basic fundamentals of the anatomy, physiology and pathology of the human body, and if his spiritual development is only at level (IV), then he is quite a dangerous man. This is especially so when he is a layman, and does not have the faintest clue about signs and symptoms of diseases. A case of early cancer or tuberculosis maybe readily dealt with by a physician, but an ignorant healer can delay the treatment of the disease until it is too late. That is why I do not agree that everybody can heal. Only some people can heal, and only very few can do it well. A well-meaning healer can alleviate some symptoms for a short while, but if the cause is not dealt with then the symptoms will recur.

Some healers reckon that two healers working together at the same time are better than one. Another point to remember is that few people are born healers: they are usually found in the medical profession, e.g. doctors and nurses. When the doctor or nurse holds the hand of the patient in taking the pulse or examining the patient, the patient is already improving and feeling much better.


Physical symptoms like aches and pain are easy to remedy. These are headaches and neck pain etc. Then as one goes deeper into diseases like arthritis, gastritis and gastro-intestinal hurry (irritable bowel syndrome), these are more complicating. Heart trouble, strokes, diabetes and cancers are now the prevalent diseases, and all these must have their causes looked into. These more serious diseases will need many sessions to result in a cure. The active and dynamic diseases like cancers and autoimmune diseases are more easily healed. Dynamic cases like cancer and aids have very low immunity. The healer will combine his etheric energy with the patient’s and bring up the patient’s immunity. In auto- immune patients, the healer does the reverse, and reduces the high immunity of the patient to a more normal level. The slow growing, benign growths are more difficult to get rid off. The nearer the growth is towards normal tissue the more difficult it is to heal. Tissues like heart and skeletal muscle, brain, eye and kidney do not r
egenerate when damaged. That means healing is quite useless in cases of kidney failure, cardiac infarcts, destroyed skeletal muscle and stroke patients (after 1˝ years). The cells in these organs do not regenerate to restore the normal bulk. However, organs like lung and liver can regenerate up to their normal size when damaged.

Neurotic patients are more difficult to heal than physical diseases. They fall into the astral level (III). In these cases the cause is almost entirely emotional in origin. That means more time has to be spent to probe into the causation from past history. Some of these may even be from past lives. Forgiveness is the best tool here. Psychotic cases of the mental level are even more difficult. Here the remedies of drugs and electro-convulsive therapy are commonly used, but a complete cure is almost never attained. The psychiatrist and developed healer may help both these latter types of psychological and psychiatric illnesses when patience, love, compassion and wisdom. Getting the entire home environment to be conducive to the healing process is very essential. Everybody at home must be in the team to help.

Cases of possession and obsession may appear ominous, but as a matter of fact they are quite easy to deal with. Therefore, one can see that spiritual healing in its totality deals with the physical, the emotional, the mental and finally the spiritual.

In summary, the spiritual healer must have unconditional love, compassion and empathy before he can start to heal. He must have common sense and a wide knowledge of medicine in order not to get into trouble. He must be humble and not think that he is the real healer, because he is only the channel. He must be purified and not avaricious or else the cosmic energy will be blocked and no healing can be done. He must take frequent breaks to replenish his own energy. He must white-light himself and close his own chakras after the healing session. He must keep all information confidential. The healer must establish a practice of meditation, awareness, purification and humility. He must not will any result to happen. He must let the Tao flow and flow with it. He must not be attached to the patient.


Most of the patients that come to see me are terminal cases who had been discharged by their own physicians. Or they are patients who have not improved with their own doctors. The remainder are those that normally prefer to seek alternative medicine. Very few come because their relatives or friends force them; and the last category are the ones that are simply curious. The first timer is usually apprehensive, as he does not know what to expect. As he is apprehensive, he is not relaxed. He will improve at the next visit. The first timer may not be convinced about healing. He may not have faith or believe in it. This does not matter. He can still be helped. But if he is full of faith and does believe, it makes the healing so much easier. The best is the patient who can surrender completely to his higher self and allows the cosmic energy to flow through him. He must be relaxed and preferably go into meditation. Rapport must then be established with the healer, with whom together they will begin to find the cause of the illness.


(1) Negative Thoughts and Emotions.
These are components of ill will. They include irritability, envy, jealousy, resentment, anger and hate. When these emotions are prolonged, they become attitudes. If the resentment and hate are regularly sent to the other party, the returning hateful emotions will be targeted at the perpetrator of these thoughts. On a daily basis, the sender of these emotions will gradually fall sick. The extreme of this situation is when the patient wishes the other person dead, the patient will finally kill himself with the hateful energies.

(2) Greed, Craving and Attachment.
In the 4 noble truths of Buddhism, it has been diagnosed that craving, clinging and attachment are the cause of suffering. Loss of material possession, relationship and status and position (ego-conceit) does dull the lustre of one’s aura. This in turn tends to send the patient into depression, from whence other illnesses could accrue. Accumulation of wealth leads to power, which will give the owner control over others, and lust for sex may become a seductive past time. Thus, money, power and sex are the 3 great motivating forces of the modern world. Greed and attachment for these 3 items when pursued to an unsustainable level will definitely lead to illness. Failure to achieve one of the above three will also lead to anger and frustration.

(3) Fear, Anxiety and Worry.
Constant worry and anxiety throughout one’s life are the best ingredients for sickness. And when worry turns to fear, which is quite usual in these cases, a steady depletion of one’s immunity is evident. This sequence of events quite often brings on depression. This lowering of immunity is manifested in the patient suffering repeated bouts of colds and influenza. Finally cancer or other serious illnesses will ensue, if nothing is done to reverse the situation.

(4) Comparison, Judgement and Criticisms are other negative traits to be avoided. To keep up with the Jones’s entails a lot of effort and envy. Judgement also means criticism and resentment. Lastly frustration will result if one cannot keep up. Again a lowering of immunity will result.

(5) Internal Conflict will take place when what one desires is in conflict with the law or social mores. This constant internal nagging is sufficient to cause illnesses to occur. Repressed sexual urge or having to put up an appearance of goodness will also produce internal conflict.

(6) Grief, Desire for Revenge and Insecurity are all negative emotions which can damage one’s aura and block one’s chakra. Insecurity normally will result in a poor self-image. Prolonged grief for a diseased loved one is most damaging. It invariably leads to depression. From this point onwards, many diseases can add on to it.

(7) Pride and Selfishness are the opposite of the above, and yet these traits may also damage one’s aura and chakras. Having these negative traits mean we have to keep ourselves taut all the time. We cannot relax.

(8) Stress. In our modern times, stress is much more prevalent because the pace is much faster than before. There is now more greed, envy and anger, because of our materialistic age of Pisces. There appears to be more perfectionists around. Stress is entirely dependent on our own reaction to events outside of us. In could range from a very small incident to a very gigantic situation. The more affluent one is, the more sensitive is the person who is then more easily stressed. Examples of situations that may produce stress are:
a) loss of job, money and loved ones,
b) divorce or separation,
c) retirement or entering a new job,
d) illness or injury and release from the hospital,
e) birth of child and child leaving home.
One can go on ad infinitum. It could even include daily, badly cooked meals! Science has found out that when one is stressed there are chemicals that travel from the brain through the blood stream to all the peripheral tissues e.g. the muscles. The muscles will then tense up, or the stomach will secrete excessive acid. If the stress is prolonged, then one’s immunity will be eroded and an illness will ensue. This illness in turn will produce more stress.

(9) Guilt and other Negative Thoughts. Some of the guilt that we harbour may be or may not be justified. These may include injury to others or divorce of our parents etc. Sometimes it is due to our conscience pricking us due to our religious upbringing. Whatever it is this type of negative thought may be changed or reversed with contemplation and meditation. Negative thoughts usually are accompanied by negative emotions, which will erode our resistance to diseases. Some people purposely create a disease in order to escape a situation, like having to move to another country. When that difficult situation is solved, the disease disappears.

(10) Karma and ‘G’ (life) plan. Sometimes the disease is due to our karma accrued either in this life or in the past life. In this situation, we can do very little about it except to bear it and work on it. If in our ‘G’ plan, we have decided on a certain life style or environment, and in our life we veer from that plan, then an illness will transpire to remind us of our ‘G’ plan. ‘G’ plan is the life plan we contracted in the spirit world before we come into this world.

(11) Obsession and Possession. In some cases, earth-bound spirits may be attached to their love ones who are still living. This individual will suffer from lack of energy, irritability, and loss of appetite and insomnia. This will continue until he loses weight with lack of concentration, and finally he ends up in a clinic complaining of severe inertia and loss of weight. The doctor runs a series of tests, which are all normal. There is no diagnosis. In this state the patient may finally expire, unless he obtains appropriate help from a spiritual healer. In possession, the individual’s character is totally changed, and a good healer can exorcise the earth bound spirit with one or several sessions.

(12) Self Abuse. This is very commonly seen in those who are alcoholics, drug addicts and cigarette smokers. This problem is self-evident. There are many social organizations available to tackle these addictions. The healer may help to a varying extent depending on whether the patient is willing to cooperate and seek the other agencies as well. The drug addict or alcoholic is a frequent victim of possession. The earth- bound spirit who was a drug addict when alive, normally hangs around dens of drug addicts, because they are still addicted to drugs even though they are dead. So when a drug addict is in a semi-comatose state the spirit will move into the body of the living addict to more fully enjoy the drug.


The patient must identify all the above causes first. Then with the help of the healer the patient must then deal with these negative traits. The most powerful weapon that is available is forgiveness. The patient must forgive himself first of all. Then he must ask for forgiveness from the other person who he has been resenting or to whom anger is directed. The patient must also forgive the other person who has done wrong to him in the past. This forgiveness must be genuine and right from the heart, and the message must also be transmitted to the perpetrator. The patient then must practice awareness so that if there is any negative thought, criticism or judgement that arises, straightaway that thought has to be changed. Changing jobs or environment can eliminate stress. It is more difficult to change one’s spouse, but a divorce may save the patient’s life. In this instance, a detailed and heart felt discussion is very necessary with the spouse. It may take several sessions before any result can ensue. Guilt is quite a damaging emotion, and in this case one should seek a wise friend or a counsellor in order to get rid of the guilt. The guilt could be totally unwarranted! The following acronym should help:


The above needs some explanation. In dieting one tries to avoid the red meats. Mainly vegetables, fruits and seafood are ideal. In some cases of the elderly, they have been very lonely, and when they fall ill, the entire family starts to gather around almost every day. The patient does not want to lose these visits, and thus there is no desire to get well. De-stress has been dealt with already. Exercise is essential, especially to a depressed patient. Path to enlightenment really means to let go of one’s attachments and clinging. This letting go is truly powerful in the healing process. If one is being stressed in one’s work or if one hates one’s job, it is definitely beneficial to change to a job that is enjoyable even though the pay is less. In the same token do not pursue a hobby that is has only social climbing qualities. Understanding means looking for the cause of the disease and eliminating it. Then one must do a U-turn in one’s habits and attitude in life. This U-turn must be a purposeful and determined effort. At the same time one should then convert our ill will, resentment and hatred to unconditional love. One of the most rapid ways to arrive at unconditional love is through daily meditation, which is practiced until total silence is achieved. This goal takes time.

Surrender to your Tao means one must surrender to one’s God, Allah or Buddha. In other words one must not try to will for anything to happen: ‘Thy will be done’ should be the credo. The patient must be willing to accept any outcome, after eliminating the causes.

Lastly, within the limits of his physical health the patient should try to service his fellow human beings, animals and vegetation.


This subject has not been discussed enough in the books. The place where healing is done should be airy and bright. It should not be in dark and haunted buildings. It should not be crowded, and silence is the essence. As temples and churches are usually inhabited by earth bound spirits, they are not ideal. Trees should ideally surround the building with birds chirping. The room should not be cluttered with statues and other bric-a-bracs. The room should be very simply decorated.

Techniques and Methods of Healing

There are essentially two methods: distant and contact healing. We will describe firstly contact healing.

Contact Healing
Sit the patient down and make him feel at ease. Ask the patient about his condition or his symptoms. Enquire into whether he has been to a conventional physician, and what diagnosis was made. Also find out what treatment has been given and what are the results. What is the duration of the disease? Then at this first visit one can only tentatively inquire into the cause of the disease. However subsequent visits will definitely elicit the real cause of the disease and the cause should then be dealt with accordingly. The healer will then explain briefly what he is going to do and what will be taking place. The purpose here is to channel prana or cosmic energy to the patient through the healer. After this explanation, the healer must then attune himself: he visualizes a ball of white light above his head. Then he imagines white light showering down from this white ball of light through his crown (7th) chakra, the 6th, 5th, and down to his heart (4th) chakra. The healer then lifts his arms forwards and upwards towards the patient. He will straight away feel tingling sensations in his hands. He is now ready to heal. He can put both his hands on the shoulders of the patient or hold both hands of the patient facing him for a couple of minutes. The healer then puts one hand in front and the other behind the patient’s fore- head, that is his 6th chakra. He touches the patient lightly there. Then he proceeds down to the 5th, the 4th and the 3rd chakras. All these actions are done with one hand in front and one behind (this means adposing). The hands are left at these chakras for no more than 2 to 3 minutes each time. This is opening up the chakras of the patient, so that the patient is now ready to receive more cosmic energy through his chakras in his etheric body. At this point the healer will place his adposing hands on to the troubled area for at least 10 minutes. The healer need not concentrate at all. He may even carry on a conversation, or his mind can wander. The analogy here is that once the tap is open the water will flow on its own without interruption. The flow will stop only when the healing stops. However, the best results are obtained when the patient is completely relaxed. When the healing is completed, the healer should close up the chakras of the patient: the patient has his back to the healer, who then criss crosses his hands at the back of the patient, from the shoulders to the small of the back below. The healer then dusts the palms of his hands three times so as to sever the etheric connection with the patient, and the good, clean prana just channeled is not pulled back by the healer. Also the negative vibrations of the patient do not follow the healer. After the session the healer may ask the patient what he felt while the healing was going on.

He now has to warn the patient that 5% to 10% of patients may feel more pain in the ensuing 24 hours after which there would be almost 100% relief. He must also inform the patient that he or she would be drowsy or sleepy for several hours after the healing.

All healers have their own methods or style. Some of them start with a chant or prayer. Some of them make high pitch, squeaky or humming noises. Some of them play new age music while healing. More often than not the patient lies on a bed whilst being healed. Some of them do not touch the patient, the hands being a few centimeters away.

With a few healers, perfume may be smelt during the healing. The fragrance corresponds to the Zodiac sign of the healer; e.g. the Pisces and the Gemini healers will emanate jasmine. There will always be healing angels nearby with a good healer. Sometimes the patient can see the healing guides, but most times the healer himself can feel their presence.

Distant Healing
As long as there is no contact or proximity to the patient, it is deemed to be distant healing. If the patient is in the same room, but out of reach, it is considered distant healing. Of course the true definition of distant healing is when the patient is far away, and no distance is too far. The patient’s name is obtained, where his he residing and what illness is he suffering from is all made available to the healer. The latter will then go into meditation and visualize the patient who is labeled with the name. It is quite a good idea if a picture of the patient is shown to the healer. After visualizing the patient white light is sent to envelop the patient. Then another beam of white light is further directed at the locality of the organ that is having the problem. This is like a laser beam focussed at the source of the illness. The first white lighting is to protect the patient whilst his chakras are being opened by the healer. The total duration of the distant healing should not take more than 10 to 15 minutes. I find distant healing very effective. It is even better if the patient is asleep, while the healing is being carried out.

Results of Healing
For a genuine good healer, 1/3 of the patients will be cured. 1/3 will obtain improvement. The remaining 1/3 will have either temporary improvement or none at all. Why isn’t every body healed? What are the possible reasons? Let us discuss this.

Although faith and belief are not absolutely required, the patient will not be healed if he deliberately blocks or resists the transmission of the cosmic energy. He will not be healed, if his anxieties and fear are much greater than the healing energy. The patient will not be healed, if he does not do a U-turn even though the inner cause of the disease is found. He will not be healed if the patient does not want to look for the cause. The patient may not want to get well, as in the old lonely lady whose illness has brought all her relatives to visit and to gather around her. Her need for attention outweighs the suffering from the disease. The patient will not get well if she wanted the disease in order to avoid a situation; e.g. moving to another country. If the disease is Karmic in origin, then it will not heal. Negative feelings, emotions and thoughts must all be meticulously eradicated, or else healing will not take place. This is especially so if there is a strong sense of guilt or the patient is enjoying the image of being ill. Of course, if the patient refuses to continue with the healing sessions because he expects a miracle at the first healing, then the healing process is aborted.

The healing may not be physical. If the patient is healed mentally and emotionally, that may suffice. His physical illness may still persist. Some time the healer is sent only to heal the patient spiritually. In the last two types of cases, if the patient dies peacefully, I will deem it a success.
