I find Dr. Bill Bengston
He met a medium in his college years and as it seems due to this friend- and partnership he also learned how to heal with his hands.
(He writes about it and describes the "technique" (which is basically doing nothing) in his book. Supposedly everybody can learn it.)
To take a couple steps back: Dr. Bengston wanted to research what was going on and initiated an number placebo controlled mice studies.
The first study:
2 groups of mice got injected with cancer cells (untreated usually 100% death rate in a certain number of days. I believe <35 days, if I remember correctly).
One group got treated "hands on". The other not.
In the treated group all mice got healed.
In the second group a couple mice died. Then the second cage was "visited" by bengston - and even he was not treating them, some of the mice who were already very sick made a turnaround and survived. He calls this "entanglement" - once they are "bonded" and thus become kind of part of the group, they get co-treated even if they are not physically near.
The "original" medium (sorry, forgot his name) was able to see where the sickness in a person was. Dr. Bengston, at least as far as I know, does not see it. He just treats it (lets the information or whatever it is simply flow where it needs to be).
They made a couple more fun experiments together:
- the medium was given one envelope at a time. inside was a name and a diagnosis. some of them were dummies. he managed to tell the diagnosis and when he got a dummy he said so (no sickness).
- Bill Bengston was handed envelopes - when the persons or animal whose name was inside the envelope had a sickness, his brainscan changed immediately. (a certain wave lengths became active).
(So if "something" is in need, this special brain activity turns on automatically)
I know it sounds like woo-woo. But the really interesting part (for me) is, that he was able to teach the technique to his students in college and they also were healing mice in experiments. So he could reproduce the effect a couple times. He calls himself a sceptic and has a really dry humor. I enjoy listening to him and reading his books/informations.
You can learn his technique by reading the book (or even reading his forum/watching his videos on youtube). It is easy to learn, but needs time and patience memorizing the cycling list.
Its really fun to play with, once one has managed to cycle the list.
(And other than AW who says that healers/mediums like himself are very rare, others (Dr. Bengston is just one of them) say everybody can do it. We just forgot how to. Specially in our western culture. In Austria I know a couple healers. E.g. one who can pinpoint exactly where and how large and how agressive a tumor is (many times proved right afterward with a scan).
But none of them is much into being present in media.
Greetings and have fun playing with it!
