It all began about four years ago. At least that’s when the rumors began. Strange tales began to emerge about a healer who walked the hiking trails in southern Ontario in Canada. A magnificent hiking route known as the Bruce Trail runs for over five hundred miles through the south-central part of the province. This trail marks the birthplace of the legend known as the Mystic Wayfarer.
At first the tales were incredibly fanciful telling of a golden haired, rather buxom woman, who “glowed” like an angel. Some of the stories included the Wayfarer flying up into the trees or turning into a deer and running away. Needless to say, the early legend was not taken very seriously by myself or much of anyone else either. As time passed, however, the nature of the stories became progressively more believable and the people telling the stories were more and more “regular Joe’s” who had no reason or predilection to make such things up. The descriptions of the Mystic Wayfarer also began to change dramatically as well. The initial description of the Mystic Wayfarer has morphed completely and has gone from the healer being a golden haired woman to being a man wearing a hood and a mask that totally covers his face. One odd consistency of note, among the stories, has always been that no one has ever seen the face of the Wayfarer. Continue reading Legend of the Mystic Wayfarer
Healing touch influences a person’s physical or emotional health without anyone physically touching the person. Healing touch is a common practice. Healing touch is related to spiritual or energy healing, therapeutic touch, and distant healing.
In the 1970s, nurses developed a specific form of healing touch called therapeutic touch to provide a more holistic (viewing the body and mind as a whole, not as individual components), compassionate approach to healing. Many nursing schools in the United States teach therapeutic touch, and it is often used in conventional medical settings (such as before and after surgery) to help comfort patients.
Central to healing touch is the belief that a vital energy or life force flows freely through space and sustains all living organisms. In a healthy person, this energy is thought to flow in and out of the body in a balanced way. It is believed that illness results when the energy flow is out of balance.

What is energy healing? Does energy healing work? Before I answer these two questions, let us explore some fundamental and interesting facts about energy. Did you know that energy is eternal? The scientific definition of energy is a “substance” that can’t be created or destroyed and can only be transformed into other forms. Since energy can’t be destroyed, it is eternal! Besides being eternal, energy is also conscious. This has been proven to a certain degree by the famous double-slit experiment.
Here is a short excerpt from Dapla.org about this experiment.
“In some strange way an electron or a photon [or any other elementary particle] seems to ‘know’ about changes in the environment and appears to respond accordingly,” says physicist Danah Zohar. A group at the Weizmann Institute in Israel has done a variation of the famous “double-slit” experiment. They used electrons, instead of photons, and observed how the resultant interference pattern (which indicates wave-like properties of the particle) dissipated the longer you watched the electrons go through the slits. As a wave the electron passes through both slits simultaneously but if, according to E Buks, it “senses” that it is being watched, the electron (as a particle) goes through only one path, diminishing the interference pattern. Elementary particles (such as photons and electrons) appear to possess a certain degree of “intelligence” and awareness of the environment.

Quantum Touch is a dynamic and highly-effective hands on energy healing technique. In principle, Quantum Touch focus and amplify life-force energy, which is most often referred to as “Chi” or “Prana” in other cultures and healing techniques. This is accomplished by combining various breathing and body awareness exercises. When the practitioner holds a high vibrational field of life-force energy around an affected area of the client’s body, the client naturally matches the vibration of the practitioner (through a process of resonance and entrainment), allowing the client’s own biological intelligence to do whatever healing it deems necessary. Quantum Touch will often stop pain and cause inflammation to be dramatically reduced; it can balance organs, glands and tissues of the body. Bones often move back into alignment as well. Since it is always the body healing itself, the body will use this energy in whatever way it decides. Life-force energy even has a remarkable effect on psychological and emotional states.
Natural healing identifies the underlying source of your illness. Modern medicine deals with symptoms, natural healing understands causes. Negative energy is present in 99% of people living in modern society. It’s there for the following reasons.
Stress – Fight-or-Flight
Fight or flight is your ancient survival mechanism. Without knowing it most of us activate this mechanism over 30 times daily. Fight or flight suppresses your immune system. Why? Because in moments of stress your body thinks it will need all its resources to deal with the situation at hand, so it temporarily shuts down your immune system. That’s really bad because now you’re not protected against disease. What’s also bad is that when the stressful situation is over it takes time for your body to fully switch back on its immune system. Your blood pressure and sugar levels also rise during fight-or-flight. Continue reading Natural Healing
