Healing Touch: Hot Hands?

Where does the road lead us?

The Discovery

The power of the healing touch...it all began with the discovery of my hot hands. Let me tell you how it happened.

When life reveals to you certain things, sometimes it hits you like a bolt of lightning. Around two and a half years ago, Dayzeebee and I were in a prayer meeting. She turned to look at me and gave me a strange look. My eyes questioned back, “What?”

When we got the chance to talk, she asked if she could hold my hand. I frowned some more thinking, “Hold my hand? Is this girl going crazy on me?”

Sensing my hesitation, she reassured me. “Don’t worry. I’m just checking something.”

“What?!” I asked again, curious as to where this was leading.

Are you willing?

Our little experiment
Our little experiment

She refused to tell me anything except that she needed me to do something again the following day. “I’m not yet sure.” She grinned. “But I want to do an experiment. Are you willing to do it?”

Well, it was futile to make her talk so in the name of curiosity I succumbed to the so-called experiment. Tying a crystal to a string, she made me open my palm. She then positioned the crystal an inch above my palm while resting her elbow on a table to make sure it was stable. “Okay, now I want you to focus. Make the crystal move.”

I couldn’t help it. It was too much. This time I laughed out loud and long. I was becoming stubborn. I wasn’t going to do this experiment until she explained to me what this was all about. Sighing, she finally gave in.

I learned that Daisy had a gift. She could actually “sense” people, what they were feeling and even thinking. She mostly uses the gift during trainings when she needs to help people understand themselves.

I learned that we are all made up energy. And during that prayer meeting, she explained why she turned to look at me. “Your energy was so strong; I felt that I was being pushed. That’s why I asked you if I could hold your hand so I could feel the energy. I was right. You have hot hands!”

Hot hands?

"Oh no, this means I am not going to get married!"
"Oh no, this means I am not going to get married!"

"Hot hands? Geez..." I was baffled. “So what does this all mean?”

“Well, I believe you might have a healing gift. I don’t know but since yesterday, this thought wouldn’t leave my mind.”

“A healing gift?” I exclaimed with dismay. “Oh no! This means I’m not going to get married!”

It was Daisy’s turn to laugh long and loud. “This doesn’t have to do anything with getting married.”

“My mom will kill me!” I moaned some more. All sorts of thoughts came wildly into my mind and I was panicking inside. So I suddenly declared out loud. “I don’t want it. You can have it.”

Daisy laughed some more. “Stop being so silly! C’mon, why don’t you try this experiment? Focus and make the crystal move.”

I grudgingly went along with the experiment. A mixture of emotions coursed through me as I saw the crystal move! She then told me to make the crystal move in circles. And the crystal moved in a circular motion. Daisy was ecstatic. “I told you, you have a gift.” I found myself intrigued despite myself. She ordered me to make it stop. And yes, the crystal stopped moving.

Some Questions to Ponder

Have you ever been struck by realizations, discoveries, enlightenment in your life?

Have you ever been compelled to follow a certain path?

What lessons have you learned?

I left her house that day, mystified, bewildered, perhaps a little lost as I looked at my hot hands.   Or was I? Maybe I had just lost part of my old self to find something new within me. Thus, my healing journey had begun.  I had the healing touch.

There was no turning back.

I can't wait for part two! I loved reading your endearing journey to self-discovery. Some people are truly blessed with such gifts and go through life never knowing. You're lucky to have had Daisy there to show you the way. Just imagine all the wonderful things you can do, once you tap into this powerful energy.

Please never lose that child-like innocense and sense of humor. Good luck on your journey.

Hi countrywomen, that was the first time I ever heard about it. So you can imagine I was taking my sweet time to grasp it all in. Thanks for commenting :)

Hi dayzeebee, I can still hear myself say those words in horror and fright and you laughing so hard. I thank you for sharing all the knowledge you have to help me in my journey to discovery. That meant a lot to me. More than you can imagine. God bless you.

Hi VioletSun, it is always so nice to see you around. It took me a loooong time to get the courage to write this hub. AS IN! I know there are many others out there with the same gift and yet, I guess I felt so odd and different somehow. Thank you for your encouragement. I promise to write part 2. And yes, it feels great to be able to laugh at myself!

Hi naturesencore, I am amazed that you sound like Daisy. All the things you are saying, she has echoed to me many times. LOL And yes, I am truly blessed with her friendship. I truly appreciate that you took the time to write this all down.

Well, Well, Well, hehehe....Looking at the blank page of this healing thing and finding yourself at a loss of words has finally come to fruition and I knew it would. I know what it's like to stare at a blank sheet of paper and when I read those words from you just 2 days ago I began watching for this hub because I knew it was on its way! I was so happy to check email this morning and saw Ripplemaker has just published a new hub....and I knew.... and it is a wonderful journey and soo happy that you would share this with all of us. What an amazing gift and blessing....thank you sis!:) OMG you did it to me again! lol

Stay away from that. The bible states to count on only the Son of God for healing.

Hi Dottie, why is it that I just want to give you a hug all of a sudden? You are doing it to me again too. I'm getting teary eyed. LOL How can I ever thank you enough for the friendship that you have extended to me all across these miles. You are one of those special angels God has sent to remind me that I need not be afraid to share about it anymore. {((hugs))}

Hi Sciantel, may God's peace and understanding be with you always. You are God's precious child and is loved tremendously.

My dear Michelle, I will never forget the day (9 months ago) when you asked me how open I was to receive your distant healing. I told you back then I was a little skeptical about it but I felt your healing power just the same. And I also remember you telling me you had to write a hub about healing, now I´m glad you finally done that and I´m looking forward to read the second part.

I want to honestly thank you for your help, it really was/is a great help (I mean that) and I´m sure you have helped many others in the mean while. I´m honored to have such a beautiful and therapeutic angel like you in my path and I hope to deserve your help again whenever I (or someone close to me) need it.

Take care and have fun!

Ricardo (funride) my friend, I remember your broken wrist hub vividly. LOL Do you know after I posted that comment I rushed to Dayzeebee and told her what I did? (I'm a scaredy cat, as she chided me often) You have warmed by heart by your words. I would gladly offer my help whenever you (or someone close to you) need it.Take care too... :)

Hello again to my dear friend Michelle....thanks as usual for your kindness and your friendship too. Each time we talk, our friendship seems to grow wider and I am just loving that.

I hear that your story of healing is far from over. You can count on me to be back for more.

Hey sis...I'm learning that you have a stubborn streak in you like in me too. Must be why we are Taurean Sisters! lol. There's no turning back now. I am coming forward with you sis, don't leave me behind!

Hi Dottie, stubborn as a mule I can be. But you have my word that I will take you with me. (Holds out my hand) :) LOL It would be an honor and pleasure to have you around sis. C'mon! :)

Good hub, Ripple. I think Dayzee Bee is a trip. I'll bet she's fun to hang with, eh? I first learned about the energy humans have and our ability to manipulate it in my hippie days. Then later, while studying religions, when I studied Wicca. The "magick" Wiccans wield is the manipulation of energy. All the rituals and other stuff is just to get them in the right frame of mind. You wouldn't need any of that stuff.

ripplemaker profile image

ripplemaker 8 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Hi Constant Walker! Yes, dayzeebee is fun to hang out with. :) But she got the brunt of my endless questions and had to research stuff just to answer them. LOL Thanks for stopping by to comment. I appreciate it. And oh, you are right, no rituals and those other stuff for me. God (as I choose to call the Source of All that Is) has got a lot to do with this healing gift. :) Take care...

Well I am glad to have read your hub. I can say your journey has just began and you have a number of experiences to experience. Just remember never to get carried away with it. always use it for good.

You have to keep a close connection with the Holy Spirit and ask him to direct your path or you could be drawn into something deeper and problematic There are many demonic forces that are happy to come across individual with your high energy level.

In the process of healing others you too can get ill so you must learn how to encircle yourself with the a protective energy your friend dazeebee will instruct you how.

God bless looking to read the next hub.

Hi ripplemaker....(Dottie reaching out for Michelle's hand)...let's go!  I'm laughing at us about being mules....do you know that song that goes like....Would you like to swing on a star....Carry moonbeams home in a jar...And be better off than you are...Or would you rather be a mule...  (Let's go swinging on stars this year sis :)

ripplemaker 8 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Hi Juliet, I was smiling as I read your comments. Why? Well, I was just planning to write a couple more of hubs after this to highlight what happened to me the past two and a half years. But after your comment, I am greatly encouraged to share more esp. those things which you have mentioned. Thank you. Thank you my friend. As with any discovery of any kind, you are right, I experienced more after that. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. God bless you too. :)

ripplemaker 8 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Oh Ripple, you make me laugh with joy. I try so hard to be grown up, but then I have to laugh with pleasure each time I remember we are all energy, and we should all be positive energy.

thank you for your joy!

ripplemaker 7 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Hi Teresa, glad you found joy in this one. I try to be a grown up too a lot of times but then being a child at heart somehow wins over. So I let go and well, it takes me into a lot of adventure. Finding you is one of them. :-)

Thank you for sharing your story, I am so glad I found it. We are all energy, each of us discover it in different ways. We have our distinct gifts or skills we develop and I really appreciate how you share and use yours. Laughter is the best medicine, it heals all. I appreciate the joy and laughter you put into every thing you share.

My sister is a nurse and while her hands are not hot, you can literally feel the energy that flows from them. Since we are all made up of energy it does make sense that within our gifts there would be more energy present. Thanks for sharing your journey!

I just received my 1st attunement in Reiki on Sunday and since then, my hands are hot most of the time. I've always had very cold hands. It's a very nice side affect. I can't wait to start practicing!

Great hub, thank you for sharing with us about your gift!

ripplemaker 6 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

mbwalz: Yes it does feel great! One time when my nephew was little and I placed my hands on his head, he jumped up and said, "It's hot...it's hot!" It made me laugh and laugh. Blessings on your healing sessions...go and spread love. Much love and light to you my friend. :)

Uhhh...Hi Ripplemaker. I was reading your story there(sorry my english is a little bad)and Yeah it got me wondering.one day I went to my Friend's house to talk and some do some other stuff but I kept thinking hwne I read this. The Reason why that I was thinking about it is because:I had... a LOT of passion in my hands. it may sound weird but my hands are really warm(sometimes hot) and sweaty.Not actually my hands I meant like my Palms. and whenever I hold something or make a fist its getting really warm and sweaty. So I was wondering do you think I have a healing touch? (Whenever I massage my Aunt or Mom They say My Massaging is really Good.Even compared to her Massaging machine I was better. So I was thinking a LOT now so can you please reply back?Thx.)^w^

Thanks alot for sharing your feelings. Someone just told me that I have a gift that is a healing power. Its strange and kindda funny for me to hear such things when I know that I am alwaz embarrassed of having a sweaty hand and having my hand feel so out of balance. That's why as soon as I am done with the lady doctor who was so sure about my healing hand I am here googling about it and trying to find out what da f* is that? Lol! I still don't know how will my stupid hand will help others. But still it makes me feel good that I am not the only person who is shock at the 1st time. ;)

Aloha Ripplemaker!

The tide brought your ripples to the shore of Hawaii 6 years after your initially wrote this post. Ironically, I am Filipina born & raises here, but my grandparents came from Cebu almost 100 years ago for a better life. Perhaps we have a family connection somehow.

I searched for "Healing Hands that get Hot" because I noticed my hands would get crazy hot when I massaged .you husband's back a d leg aches away. The I received e Reiki Attunement L1 in March of this year (which is a story in itself) and now my hands are hot most of the time. Sometimes too hot in this Hawaiian climate. I feel like I am looking for kindred souls a d came across your hub. I hope you folks are still blogging.

Light & love to you. I hope to see communication :)
