I recently had a few opportunities to offer people up for spiritual healing by placing my hands over their head or shoulders during a semi-trance state. These days I'm confident that I have a good strong channel which might be helpful to other people in this way. When I was opening the channel for healing, I felt and saw a wonderful presence which reminded me of statues of Mary, mother of Jesus. After a few minutes of placing my hands over a person's head, this healing presence became stronger and formed a distinct column to the person's head. A few minutes later the column suddenly abated. I got the impression that I was helping to direct the spirit to the person, and then my own energy could be bypassed effectively.
