Sabian Symbols: Hindu healer

Pleasures, rewards and disciplines of civilisation rob us of our most precious ability, to tune into the spiritual realms
Long ago our species lost its balance and set up a pattern of distortion in thinking and behaviour that has prevented us from finding the highest degree of group consciousness. That has brought emotional and physical disorder to most people across the planet. Yet certain people have kept alive practices from ancient times and are able, and in fact duty bound, to offer healing to those ready to receive it.

When we practise our magical capacities in service, spectacular results are possible
This is a symbol of the development of self to a very high level so that, by appropriately asserting our participation at the correct point, we make a particularly effective and beautiful impression upon the world.
A Hindu healer is typically hugely dedicated to the perfection, not only of their skills and knowledge, but also their personal disciplines of spiritual practice. Generally speaking, intense personal self-discipline creates the power to shift realities. Through this, they achieve a magical ordering of a whole course of events, which follow their involvement during a transitional phase of any occurrence. We can do this too.
All of our understandings and talents are essentially eternal and cosmic in their reach and significance. They can be brought to tangible achievements here and now in the world of form by dramatising them – in other words acting as though they were here present – and expecting results.
When we practise such magical capacities in service of others, a therapeutic relationship is struck where spectacular results are possible. Those we encounter are healed in mind and body, and at such times, there is a marriage being consummated. It is the ultimate union – that between the ideal and the real, spirit and matter, heaven and earth.
It takes exemplary personal skill to find the highest potentials within ourselves so that we can see the highest in another. By so doing, we bring potentials to their supreme completion, simply because they are recognised.
It goes without saying that the power to practise magic and healing is forfeited should a person employ their psychological insights and high spiritual station to impress, or intrude upon the free will of another.
Essentially, despite the pleasing resonance in the world of form, this is a transcendental mystery. The path of healing is best walked by one with no attachment to outcomes. Both the healer and the client are better served by this more humble approach.
