Welcome to Part 7 of this blog series that explores the many cultural and religious perspectives on healing. Using video excerpts from two DVDs, Consciousness & Healing, and Compassionate Intention, Prayer, and Distant Healing, this series illuminates the diversity of perspectives and the common threads that unite the many distinct approaches to healing.
Rabbi Yisrael Rice offers a Kabbalistic perspective on prayer and healing in this video excerpt. In addition to invoking “blessing” as a powerful type of prayer he describes the view that the human body is designed to be a vessel that draws in divine energy. This interaction, according to Rabbi Rice, is a seamless one and when it is not this is when illness arises. Thus, healing takes place as the process through which the human vessel realigns towards a seamless exchange of flow with divine energy.
