Healing by shamanic practices, 'laying on of hands', faith healing and many other names for it have existed for basically as long as or before we came down out of the trees. There have been 'natural healers' but you can also learn. You might read all of the original thread to find out how this was developed: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=3792&hilit=healing+swat+team
. There has been some discussion of not assuming that healing will work as in, don't stop taking the medicine, fire your doctor or skip the medially advised treatment or operation. There has been some discussion of the 'ethics' of providing treatment to those who request it rather than to those who someone feels needs it, free will and the situation with 'planned' problems of a life path.
You might want to read this original thread for further information about these whys and wherefores. This is a place for someone who wishes to learn this 'skill' to do so as you can see if your visualization matches the problem said to exist and see if there is a positive result. I see little downside as long as no one is offering services for a fee or giving advice contrary to licensed medical opinion or advising or in fact delaying treatment to give healing a chance. By all means consult medical doctors when there is a clear and present danger. I have, as I remember, asked that care be taken to not violate this responsible attitude in what we might try to do here. Tom certainly does not advocate any less careful approach. The permanent list was created and 'stuck' in place for the convenience of those who wish to help and to learn. Information was simply getting too spread out and people were being forgotten. I do not place someone's name there unless they request it or a family member does so as in the case of someone taking care of a relative. After you read further about the concepts, I would be pleased to hear your thoughts on whether this should be continued and any risks that might not have been thought of.
