Because natural or energetic style healings, are like magic when they work. Nobody fully knows why, but no one has really given a solid theory on that either (forget research journals, the reductionist model used for scientific hypothesis doesn’t apply well to these styles of healing that focus on holistic and whole of being approaches).
And magic tricks are cool – when our health & well-being aren’t at stake.
Magic is just not knowing or understanding why something worked or happened – the less we can understand, the more magical it seems.
Think about a magic trick or illusionist act.
When it works, you think “Wow!”. When you find out how it works, that’s pretty cool too (especially if it has some finesse to it).
But the next time you see a similar trick, it’s lost its magic – you know how it works now. In fact, if you see it multiple times, it becomes lame. Been there, done that.
It gets categorised as a trick of the mind. An illusion.
And the question is – are health issues, and the healing that occurs just a trick of the mind, as well? An illusion?
