A Journey into Spiritual Healing and Kirlian Photography
A down to earth approach to Hands on Healing

I have written this book to try to help people who are interested in spiritual healing understand that they also have the ability to heal. One need not spend lots of money on very expensive courses in order to become a healer, for it is your God-given right and part of your spiritual destiny. My belief in spirit guides and helpers and my understanding that we are part of a 'Big Plan' that is guided by spirit has been proved to me on numerous occasions. I accept totally that I am used as a channel for healing energy to flow through, and that the healings are performed by a higher intelligence than me. At certain times in the book I have repeated what I consider important points for you to grasp and accept. I hope that you will enjoy the book and trust that it will be of help to you on your journey.
This book on Healing has not been written in one session; it has been put together over about 24 months or so. During this time I have been offered advice on how it should be done. Mostly, may I say, by people unskilled in book writing or publishing. I am sure that people have been well meaning in their advice and I thank them for caring.
One suggestion that was made to me was put this way: "David, the word 'Spiritual' is not commercial, not sellable; it sounds too religious. Some Healers are refraining from using it, along with all references to spirit guides or helpers, on the basis that it sounds to most people to be supernatural or psychic, and won't be accepted by people out there who buy books." I thanked the person concerned for this advice and naturally considered the situation.
Please bear with me, for I wish to express what is in my heart and hope that you can understand: I was born under the sign of Virgo. I am very down to earth, sceptical and not easily convinced. I was told early on in my life that I was to be 'a healer', which I did not understand. Once I became involved in a small way in healing I was, can I say, introduced to my spirit guides. As I became more committed, these spirit helpers told me certain situations that would occur in my life. All turned out 100% true. I was informed that these spirit people had been with me in previous incarnations, and are with me during my life here on earth. We have work to do, both now and in the future, and I pray that I may be able to develop and use whatever abilities I have to be of service.
I know that it is not I who am responsible for any healings which take place. I know how much Spirit influences things in our lives and I understand that we are part of the plan for what is to be our future. I know that Spirit has been influential in my life, not running my life or doing it for me, but guiding and directing me.
I feel so sorry for those people who think otherwise and especially those who believe that it is they who are responsible for healings which take place.
For what is Faith? It is to believe in that which we cannot see!
We shall all know the truth in the not too distant future.
I have the courage of my convictions; I have used the title, and shall continue to call myself a spiritual healer, and I shall always give credit where it is due, to those loving, caring souls in the Spirit Realm, who work with us spiritual healers in this physical world, to serve mankind.
I hope to be able to use revenue from book sales to advance the cause of spiritual healing in whatever way I can, maybe to establish a sanctuary where no charge would be made for healing. This would enable many to be helped. I would see the Sanctuary also as a place for people to be trained in the healing arts, and where they would be able to practise and develop their healing abilities. I have a mental picture of what could be achieved, and invite suggestions from interested persons.
I hope also to be able to make a financial donation to the National Federation of Spiritual Healers, to thank them and to help them to continue the great work that they are doing to practice and promote spiritual healing.
Scientific research throughout history has shown us how the world operates on the material level. Many healings which have occurred, due to Prayer, Distant Healing or laying on of hands are, by scientific principles, impossible! Yet they have happened!
Surely this must show that there is a higher intelligence at work here, which is not physical.
I send my love to that band of spiritual healers in the Spirit World who is bound to me and me to them, and thank them for being so patient and unselfish. Loving and caring for me when I'm sure it could have been easier for them to walk away and to find another channel, much easier than I, to work with.
There is no one school of thought which can provide all the answers for us on matters spiritual (psychic). No one has a monopoly on the truth, despite what some people or some groups tell us, insisting that theirs alone is the right way. Each of us creates our own perception of what the truth is; it must feel comfortable to us, and be in harmony with our inner feelings, our intuition. Even scientists themselves concede that there are many things which they have to accept, but which they cannot prove.
The trust and faith in spiritual healing and spiritual ideas involves a personal and inborn belief; it is impossible to accept and practise spiritual principles without such a strong belief. These principles cannot really be tested or proven, and must therefore be accepted. I feel that we need to listen and rely more on what our heart is telling us than the thoughts that are coming from our head. As we go forward on our journey let us resolve to show love and compassion to those that we may meet on the way.
Visiting London from Australia on my quest to learn more about spiritual healing, I was thrilled to be asked by the National Federation organisers to work as a healer on their stand at this prestigious exhibition. It was wonderful for me to be on the stand and to meet members of the public who came on to the stand to ask questions so that they could learn more about healing. Working with other healers also broadens one's knowledge and provides opportunities to discuss aspects of healing. It was whilst I was working on the stand that I met Shirley Brooker, a wonderful lady who was so helpful and considerate. Shirley is devoted to her healing work and spends much of her time helping people like myself to progress their healing work. We are still good friends to this day and correspond on a regular basis, which is very beneficial to me. I look back on those days with much happiness and thank those people like Shirley for the fond memories.
In the rapidly changing world in which we live, we are seeing many changes on a global scale. It is as if there is a speeding up, a quickening of the pace of change.
Who in their wildest dreams would have thought that we would see the fall of communism in Russia and the pulling back of troops from East Berlin, East and West Germany re-uniting after 50 years of being virtual enemies, the changes in South Africa (which now has a black President) and an end to apartheid in that country?
Who would have imagined Israel and the Palestinians signing peace treaties, and the I.R.A. in Northern Ireland declaring a truce after so many years of senseless killings and violence. Does it not make you wonder, and ask yourself, is something going on that we can't see? I believe that there is, and that it is our spirit friends who are at work here.
When one has been involved with, worked for, and believes what Spirit is capable of, it is no surprise to us. We can understand it to be part of Spirit's 'Big Plan'. This is why I call spiritual healing the 'Therapy of the Future'.
We shall all play our part as spiritual healers in 'God's Plan for Earth'.
The Time is fast approaching.
Setting the Scene
When I began writing this book I realised that it would not be possible to relate every experience that has happened in my life, so I have tried to condense a very full life into a relatively brief story, which I hope will hold your interest. I feel sure that many of you will relate to it, for there will be incidents or situations with which you will feel some empathy. Spirit has told me that I chose a hard path to walk this time and they haven't been wrong, I can tell you. I wonder sometimes what sort of person I was in previous lives to have chosen this one in an effort to make amends and to get myself on the right path again, and so help my spiritual development.
No mortal of woman born, can shun their destiny.
I do hope that you enjoy the book and that it will help you on your path through life and trust that it will all come together for you, when the time is right for you!
The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.
Take that step and keep on going forward.
Good Luck and God Bless.
My Story, to which you may Relate!
I would like to tell you a little more about myself and how I came to write this book. I hope that you find it interesting and I am sure that many of you will relate to some of the events that I have experienced.
I was born in South London and in my early childhood I spent quite a lot of time with my grandmother who lived in the country away from London and the bombing of World War II. Recollections of my childhood are very vague so I shall jump to my teenage years. I left Buckhurst Hill Country High School in Essex in my mid-teens with virtually no academic qualifications; I was a poor scholar.
I always had an interest in such things as ghosts, U.F.O.s, ouija boards and things in this area. I completed my National Service with the 1st Royal Tank Regiment in Germany and returned to civilian life and the search for a career.
This was an unsettling time for me and when my younger brother decided to emigrate to Australia, I gave this some thought, and after much soul-searching I also decided to emigrate to Perth in Western Australia.
My first impression on arriving in Perth was wanting to go straight back to London, which at that time seemed to be the centre of the world, whereas Perth was like a small country town. I had to stay 2 years anyway and after meeting up with my brother and finding a job I did settle OK.
I still had this interest in what I shall call 'the psychic' and often visited Spiritualist churches, where many times I was given a message. I only had an interest, but really very little knowledge or understanding, so when I was told that I should be doing the work, I really didn't know what that meant. As time went on I got involved with a group which used to meet every Monday evening to meditate for development. I attended this group for about 12 months. I heard nothing and saw nothing, whilst others in the group did. So I became quite disenchanted and said to the leader of the group, "Look, I think I shall give this a miss, I'm not getting anywhere and I'm probably holding others back."
"Oh, don't do that," she said, "you are the powerhouse for all the energy we use." So I did carry on until the circle broke up.
Around about this time my cousin Penny emigrated to Perth from London and together we joined a group and started our own circle, which was led by a man who was a direct voice medium, with what purported to be Spirit voices speaking through him. At first this seemed to be really what we had all been looking for, but unfortunately it became more and more evident that his motives were not the best and he was using whatever gift he had for his own ends and to the detriment of others close to him.
We parted company under unpleasant circumstances and both my cousin Penny and I were left wondering if we were on the right track. We did a lot of soul searching and felt totally let down by Spirit—lots of questions but no answers. We didn't know what to do or where to go. Why was this deceit allowed to happen to us? Was it some sort of test for us, maybe to make us more perceptive of the people we were working with? It was at this time that Penny told me that before she left London she had several clairvoyant readings with a well known London medium who told her that someone close to her in her family was a very strong healer, with much healing ability. Penny's clairvoyance was getting stronger but because of family commitments she decided for the time being to stop. It was at this time she advised me that I was the person mentioned in her readings as a healer who would go on to do much work in this field.
I half-heartedly went along to Spiritualist churches, even though I felt let down by Spirit for all the deceit that had gone on. I wanted answers to many questions and I was not getting them. Still the messages came when I visited the Churches, although now they mentioned healing and the fact that I was a healer. I can remember having healing at a Spiritualist church and the healer saying, "Your hands are so hot. It is you who should be giving healing to me."
What was this healing I used to ask myself. What do you do? What's it all about? Seemingly no one could tell me, or wanted to, in Perth at that time—so I was left wondering.
I truly cannot say like so many others in this work that I saw or heard things from childhood because I just didn't, even though I did want to. I wasn't given messages or directions from spirit guides and so it made me feel very inadequate. I felt that I was stumbling along on my own, not really knowing where I was going or what I was doing. I had no one to turn to, to ask questions on healing, etc., and when my cousin asked me if I could help her best friend's baby, I didn't know what to do. The baby, whose name was also David, was born with a lump on his head. Not a deformity, but to do with the birth. Of course the mother Joan was upset, and the Nursing Staff had told her it was all right, and that because a baby's head is soft when born the lump will gradually go down, until it goes completely. I was at a loss to know what to do, so I placed my hands on the baby's head and said a prayer and asked desperately for help. Two days later Penny rang me at work and said that Joan had been back to the hospital and that the lump had totally gone.
The Nursing Sister said, "This couldn't happen; are you sure its the same baby? I've never heard of this before."
A close friend in the family, who suffered severe migraines and had to take a tablet every day, asked me if I could do anything for him. Again I thought, "What do I do?" I felt lost and inadequate. But I did lay my hands on his head and said a prayer for help, adding a special plea because I felt out of my depth here. Bert decided after this to stop taking the tablets and to this day has not had a bad migraine attack. How wonderful, but I still didn't understand it and had even more questions, and there was no one who I could really ask to obtain the knowledge I so desperately needed.
I was reading more and more books and the one which impressed me most was by the great English healer, Harry Edwards. After reading his story and his life's plan, I knew I had found what I could call 'my hero'. Here was a man who had actually done the things I could only dream about. I was so taken by the wonderful way in which he taught that healing should be, so basic and straightforward, it was incredible. I knew this was the way I wanted to develop.
Many of the books one reads on spiritual healing are written by people who have not actually healed, but Harry Edwards had proven his theories. He had accomplished what he believed, not just talked about it. My understanding of healing and the way it is done took a great leap forward. For the first time I really understood that I was being used by 'spirit forces', who were so much more knowledgeable than I was. I came to understand that I was merely a channel for this energy to flow through. I continued to search for knowledge and had this sort of inner urge to develop whatever abilities I had, yet not really knowing how to go about it.
It was about this time that I was to go through the worst period of my life. My family split up and I lost my business and partnership with my brother. I was also being embezzled by two sisters on my staff who took me and the business for thousands. Sadly my trust was badly abused. Through the trauma and emotional stress of losing family, business and friends, my own self-esteem plummeted. I went from a successful businessman with family, future and financial security, to being unemployed, devastated, not knowing what to do, and feeling that there was only myself to blame. My confidence was gone and I felt ill. I couldn't sleep and had no direction of where to go or what to do. Some friends and family deserted me and some helped me get through it with their support.
