Spiritual healing is the ability of your mind and soul to repair your ailments. These ailments are not limited mere physical wounds, but can also relate to mental illness and self esteem issues. Many modern day physicians invoke the idea of spiritual healing along with western medicine as a means to promote the health of their patients.
The belief that a healthy mind equals a healthy body is not new to anyone. However, the idea that a positive spiritual existence might heal the body is sometimes misunderstood.
But, those who carefully examine their own lives can probably see where their mental state inflicts harm on their physical health. An easy example is the "when it rains it pours" syndrome. Just when everything seems to be going poorly some people find that they wind up physically sick. It is hard to believe that the two are not in some way connected. The same can be said for working things in reverse. Start feeling positive and having a more balanced energy and physical illness can also dissipate.
Spiritual healing is often associated with religion and faith healing. There are many religions, including Christianity, that believe strongly in the power of prayer to heal illness. The belief in divine intervention has been widely documented. The laying of hands or other religious rituals are claimed to heal everything from cancer to blindness. This is not the same as spiritually healing your soul so that your body can be more healthy.
True spiritual healing requires work on ones self. It requires you to figure out how to get your body and energy into focused balance. There may be relation to the belief in a higher power along with meditation, but in this context it is not specifically about divine intervention.
