Spiritual healing is complementary medicine: it heals at the spiritual level
directly by changing meanings intentionally (often using dowsing techniques),
whereas other types of medicine address other levels. That can have an effect
on other levels indirectly, just as directly healing the physical, e.g. a
broken leg, can have an indirect effect on others, e.g. the emotions because
the leg-owner is glad to get the use back. The effects are varied: anything from a
feeling of deep cleanliness to the relief of depression and an increase in
personal energy, and to the solving of paranormal problems in general.
It has become clear in recent years that there is a wide spectrum of health
matters, from what the NHS etc can treat, through the preventative measures
many have tried (e.g. giving up smoking), to the health benefits of exercise
and good diet, and on to the more subtle matters of the complementary medical
world. Evidence is gathering that the latter, though subtle, has a real part

It's entirely valid to ask for a house to be healed just out of curiousity, in
fact I would encourage it, it's a chance to encounter this kind of faerie
magic without getting too close! Specific reasons people have include problems
with sleep, personal energy, persistent illness, unexplained odours and
noises, the list is long and rather general.
It isn't completely known how this stuff works or even what it is. Most just
get on with using it, because they've found it works. I have found it works
but I don't find it so easy to avoid thinking about it. What follows is my
understanding so far. You don't have to understand it for it to work, instinct
is probably better.
We're all familiar with the various levels in life: the physical body, the
chemical nature of food, the communicating nerves, being a biological
individual, taking part in social contexts, and problems and remedies in each
of them. But there are others: emotions, dreams, thoughts, meanings,
qualities, experienced as the subjective, in which there also can be
problems and remedies.
Science proceeds by eliminating the subjective, a major source of error it
must be said, to find objective truths, those things which are true for
everyone and can be proved by repeatable test. Having been so successful at
this it can look as if the objective is where all truth is, and that the
subjective is all fanciful invention. Spiritual healing isn't - yet - in the
book of science.
But consider the example of the sky being blue: where is the blueness? It
isn't in the physical, that's electromagnetic waves at a particular frequency,
nor is it in the eye, that's neurons electro-chemically firing in a particular
way. Nor is it in the brain, if that is seen as like a computer it would be
showing sequences of 1s and 0s. Nor is it a social construct since I can see
the sky as blue on my own, even if my own experience is in fact different from
that of others, though I might then not have a word for it.
In philosophy this is known as the problem of qualia
, and is
unsolved. Even though it may be possible to show objectively that a particular
person is currently seeing the colour blue, perhaps from records of their neural
activity when known to be seeing blue, you can't show objectively what it is like for that person. And that
suggests other parts of our personal inner life, e.g. emotions and thoughts, have the same
It's easy to say there is another level, meanings, which has its own life. The
big question is whether meanings can exist or continue to exist if you take
away the levels that are apparently not just supporting but causing. One
answer is "how could it not?". The meaning isn't a physical thing so
how could it have been caused by the physical? Which would open up the possibility
that there is much more for science to discover.
A word that's often used in this context is "energy", but that isn't
meant to be physical energy. Rather it's more like intensional or semantic
energy, i.e. something with a capacity to change meaning or perceptable
quality. Another is "spiritual", which means, effectively, the level
of meanings, though there are levels within that too.
The basis of dowsing is techniques (like the unforced movements of pendulums
or bent coat-hangers) to detect what you yourself are aware of on a more
subtle level than normal, the level of meanings, just as you know what
blueness is even when not seeing that colour. You use a sequence of yes/no
questions to find things out and then ask for any changes (i.e. you act from a
more subtle level than your normal will). Because it's all about the meaning
of things you can dowse, to some extent, on a map as if you were there
physically. You'll just have to try it for yourself... (the British Society of
may have a group near you). They do have some introductory articles:

What's being offered here is to a significant degree experimental. I don't
claim it is effective against any particular personal symptoms, and it
certainly doesn't replace any medical treatment (I don't like the term
"alternative medicine" at all). But people have benefited from it, and maybe
when a lot more is known and understood this paragraph can be rewritten.

email me and if necessary ask for my mobile number (I'm afraid I don't have a landline).
These healers also offer house healing and use dowsing, and have their own write-ups of what it's about, which may be helpful:
I have degrees in Philosophy (from Durham) and in Artificial Intelligence
(from Imperial College) and I have worked for many years as a computer
programmer, even as a research assistant in AI at a university (Sheffield).
So I'm a bit geeky, but some years ago I followed up an instinctive interest in dowsing and
discovered a whole new world. It's a natural path into the metaphysical realm,
which is both cerebral and intuitive. The usual association is with finding
underground water, but there are several major themes: one is healing on the
metaphysical or spiritual levels, another is dowsable qualities in the
landscape, particularly around stone circles and the like.
My main introduction to healing was the experience of having my own aura
cleared, which means the levels of my own meaning freed of things that aren't
me, mostly ghosts. I could see, or at least feel, quite clearly the character
of these spirits, none of which were in any sense bad, just confused, in
shock, incapable of movement etc. At one point I suddenly felt weepy, out of
the blue, and the healer reported that it was a child, too frightened to move,
so needed help. At another there was someone who had had breathing
difficulties, and it turned out after that that presence had been one small
cause of my own asthma. Afterwards I felt totally clear, like a perfectly
Since then I've used these techniques many times in various contexts, often
learning from the experience. For example, recently I found (by dowsing my own
aura) that a spirit had attached itself to me and I thought I should
help it move on. But having made contact and suggested he, for it was a he,
could go on to the Light, he just folded his arms and declared he wasn't going
anywhere, things were much more interesting here. I didn't inquire about
what he was comparing here with. Thinking I had a real problem I told him I
couldn't force anything, and was going to break contact so as to go ask people
I know who might know more. But by an insight, whether my own or given, I asked
for him to be shown something of the Love of God, at which his face fell for
he was seeing the bigger picture properly and realised he had to go, and he
did, at least that was my mind's eye perception. It isn't usually that clear
I don't charge anything for this spiritual healing. I don't think it's wrong
to do so but it is for me. However, time is spent and work is done, and to make
it possible to spend more time I can suggest a donation. The amount is
entirely up to you, sorry about that :-). Details will be in the email you'll get
when the healing intervention has been done.

"Overall, of 24 biological/medical parameters twelve showed significant to
highly significant effects of GSPs (Geopathic Stress Places), five showed trends and six showed no
effect. Bersgsmann, a recognised expert in medical statistics, concludes that
there exists a disturbance of the regulatory systems of the body by an unknown
form of energy. Geopathic stress places (GSP) are not the cause of illness but
are definite risk factors which contribute to other risk factors."

This a summary of feedback given to date. It counts as evidence but not as
proof. To make a scientific proof you would need a control group of cases
where no healing took place to show the degree of placebo effect, an
assessment of change independent of the requestor's judgements, a survey to
establish whether these self-selecting cases are representative of the general
possibilities, control over whether other treatments are being carried out in
the same time period, an objective measure of the sensitivity of individuals
to this type of treatment, also of the effects on different symptoms, and a
test of how these particular questions and their wording affect the answers,
and when you've done all that you'd still need to find a journal that would
publish it, which is a big ask. Nonetheless, it's interesting! Have a read of
the paper referenced above. It ticks most of those boxes, but requires much more
activity by the requestors.

In case you were wondering, "anweald" is short for "anweald systems", which was a
trading name I used when I was a freelance computer programmer. I keep using
it for practical and sentimental reasons, there's no business with that name
any more. It was supposed to be a new Old English word meaning "of the forest
on the hill", which I constructed from Sweet's Anglo-Saxon Primer.
When the web came along I found it already existed, it's even in Beowulf, and
means power and authority, which is nice.
