All articles in this book are from the original writings of Paramhansa Yogananda unless other wise noted.
This booklet was created as a resource to accompany my 5-day seminar on The Divine Will Healing Techniques of Paramhansa Yogananda. However, it is also a useful resource for anyone who would apply these teachings with sincerity and devotion both for their own healing, and for the healing benefit of others.
I have served as the director of the Ananda Healing Prayer Ministry since 1989, and the information that I have compiled in this book has been of great help in assisting those who approach us for prayers for healing in body, mind and spirit.
Paramhansa Yogananda stated that "Healing depends on the power of the healer and the receptivity of the patient." One can increase that receptivity through opening one's heart to God, and by taking simple, yet powerful steps toward improving one's condition, whether that suffering or lack is in the body, mind, relationships, material concerns or spiritual life.
I often open my healing classes by saying, "The most important question to ask in any healing matter is, 'How can I apply positive energy to this situation?'" May you find practical answers within these pages.
Also, a very important tool of healing is the Energization Exercises which one can learn through the Ananda Course in Self Realization. Paramhansa Yogananda developed these exercises and made very strong references to their healing benefit for body, mind and soul. In fact, we have heard of two stories in which people came back from full body paralysis by doing the exercises mentally.
So, there is much for us all to discover along the way! The important thing is to begin by taking a positive step. Something simple yet extremely powerful and effective is to memorize a suitable affirmation from Paramhansa Yogananda's book, Scientific Healing Affirmations (available in most bookstores). Do it with the power and dynamism that you will learn about in this book. Your thoughts, as they become powerful and focused, can heal you. Read his words on healing as contained in Scientific Healing Affirmations and in this volume that you now hold.
As you apply this knowledge you will find yourself on a lifelong journey of Divine Will Healing, both for yourself and for the benefit of others.
