“The secret of healing is to rise by the power of belief above the limitations of this world of variety, that one may touch by the power of intelligence the oneness of the whole Being. It is there that one becomes charged with the almighty power, and it is by the power of that attainment that one is able to help oneself and others in their pain and suffering. Verily, spirit has all the power there is.”
~ Hazrat Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan ~
The Sirat-i Inayat Healing Collective works actively to awaken the heart and the healing power within each of us, to bring comfort, peace, wholeness, and strength to ourselves and each other. In all circumstances, at all times, the power of prayer can bring energy, hope, and healing.
Inayat Khan assigned healing prayers for individual mureeds as a daily practice. Many mureeds invite the vitality and balance through these prayers and practices every day.
Murshid’s guidance includes an acknowledgement that it is necessary to use all our resources in right proportion, to seek allopathic medical healing when needed, to cultivate maintain healthy lifestyle choices, and to use spiritual healing as an ongoing practice. He gave instructions to keep our thoughts turned toward healing with each action and every breath.
The Healing Collective holds ongoing healing services that include some of Murshid’s prayers, breath concentrations, recitation of healing mantras, and pouring forth healing energy for people who have requested it and who have given permission for their names to be included in the service. Murshid was clear that we should not pray for people without their permission. We need to respect the autonomy and freedom of each soul and avoid attempts to impose our wishes or agendas for others.
The word “healing” means to come into wholeness, to return to rightness, to become complete. We should not presume that our preferences and desires for what we think of as right or good is true. In reality, even death is ultimately a “healing.” All phases of life and death are held in the hands and wisdom heart of God.
