The healer differs from the medical doctor in that the medical doctor is a learned and trained technician in methods of alleviating systems of illness that may not be part of his/her personal experience learned to utilize life's obstacles for growth and development. when, through understanding trial and error, and obstacle, problem or illness is overcome and a new experience of benefit is born out of an old problem, true healing has taken place. When such an indivuidual extends his/her healing experience to others to help guide them trough what they have experienced, a healer is created. The process to is continual. as a the healer helps to guide others he/she too is guided from 12 worked on by Queen Afua. she was about to apply a healing agent to my body when right before the applications the congestion in my chest began to break up and disperse. this was quite an extraordinary experience, i might add.
