Sufism and Sufi Healing

Love is the essence of life and Sufism advocates for the transformative abilities of love. According to this belief, divine love can heal any scar no matter how deep it is. The path to this divine love is not an easy one. There are intricacies at every step of this tortuous path. But the final result is delightful.

Sufism is an Islamic school of thought that encourages man to search his inner self if he wants to find the divine within. Sufi practices focus on the renunciation of worldly things, purification of the soul, and the mystical contemplation of God’s nature; which is divine Love. Sufism is a belief that abandons materialism and cupidity. According to this tenet, pursuing God’s path will lead to a divine state hereafter. Sufism is a way of life that invites the person to meaningfulness and well-being. There are many Sufi practices, one of which is dhikr, the remembrance of God. (It does not have to be Islamic for those that are not Muslim.

You are simply connecting with a higher source in the context of your belief system.) This meditative remembrance is thought to be a source of attaining the divine in this life and after death. Other practices of Sufis also include whirling, prayers, fasting, and many other ritual practices.

By doing so, they are achieving spiritual perfection. It also provides mental peace, heightened awareness, and bliss to the Sufis. They consider their soul as a source of communion with the almighty.

Why is this divine love pertinent though?

Every negative emotion we feel every adversary we go through leaves a bitter taste in our hearts. With time this bitterness turns into poison and affects our whole body not just mentally but physically as well. Sufi love heals this bitterness by soothing these negative emotions and eventually eradicating them.

The increasing popularity of Sufism has taken it to laboratories. Sufism is now contributing its part in psychological and neuroscience researches. It helps understand the therapeutic interventions of humans.

Sufi Healing

Spiritual healing regards the awakening of one’s self. It refers to the unleashing of humans’ philanthropist qualities such as forgiveness, tolerance, compassion, and harmony. These qualities are present in all human beings, but only a few of them can realize them. Sufi healing uses divine energy channeled by the practitioner. It awakens the human being and makes them realize the treasure they are hiding inside. Different methods are used for this Sufi healing. All these various techniques are based on three basic approaches. They can be modern, traditional, or spiritual. Different people require different types of healing. Some may need recovery related to the body; some may require it for the mind and emotions, while others may want healing for their soul. The healing may include spiritual methods or physical methods.

During a healing session, the healer may pick up areas and blockages that need work as the body can harness old energies from past or current traumas and experiences. Since our bodies are made up of energy and every cell holds a specific vibration; the healer can intuitively recognize when there is a misalignment, stagnation of energy, and ailments. Ailments have a different vibration in their anatomic structure. After scanning the body the healer then it can work on the areas that need work by channeling divine pure healing energy through the body. The healer may even communicate with the physical body to rejuvenate and heal.

Healers are gifted with the ability to sense, see, and hear. It is important to understand that a healer is a tool and not doing the healing. In Sufism, the Source to the healing is the ultimate source, the only one; God. In Reiki the same philosophy is applied the healer is the channeler of source energy, picking up messages and blockages during a treatment.
