The Truth About Energy Healing
by Ray Yungen
In the book, Forever Fit, Cher speaks of a friend of hers who is a metaphysical “healer”:
She heals with her hands and, boy, if she puts her hands on you, you know you’ve been touched. Even near your body you feel it. It’s simply unbelievable. But she is truly tuned in to some kind of higher power.1
New Agers and occultists believe that man has more than one body, that there are other invisible bodies superimposed on the physical body. They refer to one of these as the etheric body and believe there lies within it energy centers called chakras (pronounced shock-ras). The term chakra means whirling wheel in Sanskrit, the ancient Hindu language. They were seen by those with clairvoyant powers as spinning balls of psychic energy. It is taught that there are seven chakras, which start at the base of the spine and end at the crown chakra at the top of the head.
