Hi Mary,
  Part of my spiritual work is as a healer.  Part of it is simply knowing how 
to use energy transfers - sort of Reiki on steroids, if you will.  However, 
much of the healing work a true spiritual healer does has nothing to do with 
causing miracles, it is to bring the person back into balance with themselves 
and their spirituality - or as the Navajo would say, to walk with beauty.  
  I never ask anyone if they have faith - faith is immaterial.   I ask them 
what is wrong,  I feel their aura.  We talk about what is going on in their 
lives.  Then I help them get into balance emotionally and spiritually - it does 
not matter what their spiritual path is. I work with people on an energetic 
level and don't claim to replace lost legs or cure anything.  I help with pain 
of the body, soul, and mind and I do my best to give people hope and equanimity 
to meet the furture on their own terms.  
  A person who is calm and unafraid to face their future is easier to help with 
anything from cancer to a headache.  Headaches are easy deal with, cancer is 
something I can only provide some pain relief and spiritual and emotional 
healing for.  I don't claim to be some sort of miracle woman, only the typical 
old village wise woman. 
  We who do reach out to help others need to be careful about how it is done.  
Bringing a person back to their center, back to an appreciation of the beauty 
in the world around them is a gentle and often slow process and when it is done 
they may still be dying, but they can die with joy and peace - or they may 
transcend pain and go on to live vibrant lives.  We all have our mission here - 
and sometimes the mission is to give others the chance to care for those who 
are ill.  Hence, someone with no legs will still have no legs, but his mission 
is to teach others that behind the prosthetic limbs is a person who is a 
manifestation of deity on earth and that is the best of all outcomes.

  Next time someone tells you that you don't have enough faith, ask them two 
  1) How much is enough?
  2) If some of those faith healers are so good, why aren't they volunteering 
in hospitals?
  This is pretty radical, coming from me, since I am a Christian, but I have 
really had it with faith healers, healing services, and people who seem to 
think that once you begin believing, your brain should go into permanent 
hibernation. Part of the reason I don't go to church any more is the old 
numbers, nickels and noise thing; how much money, how many attendees, and how 
big a production?
