Healing Touch Part 2: Wonder Woman?

My hands, my face, my entire being seemed different somehow.
My hands, my face, my entire being seemed different somehow.


If you have arrived here before reading part 1. May I invite you to read the hub Healing Touch: Hot Hands?

Thanks! Be blessed.

What happens when you have the healing touch?  Why did it make me feel like wonder woman?

When life reveals something new about our being, I notice that a shift of perspective suddenly occurs.

I looked at my pair of hands. “Who would have thought I have hot hands!” I muttered, as I inspected my fingers, fingernails and the lines on my palms. They looked pretty ordinary to me. "Who would have thought that it has the power to heal?

I looked at my face in the mirror. “You’re happy!” I accused the face smiling back at me. I tried distorting my face in the mirror but the twinkle in the eyes remained.

Of course, I was happy. It seemed like a huge window had been opened and for a moment, the road up ahead was quite clear. I mused, “I wonder where that road will take me?”

Around two and a half years ago (a few days after dayzeebee and I had our little experiment) the music ministry was gathered for practice. I found out that Macon, one of my sisters in community, was having a headache. Concerned, I asked what happened. She said her eye had been hit by a bolt while fixing the door knob in their office. I looked closely and saw that the eye was red. She wanted to visit the doctor but it was a Sunday and clinics were closed.

“Can I put my hand over your eye?” She nodded. So I gently placed my hand over the afflicted eye and held it there for a few minutes, whispering to God a silent prayer. After awhile, I removed my hand saying, “I hope you get to visit the doctor tomorrow.”

“Thanks sis,” She said. “My headache is feeling a bit better.”

"Hey, now that's something!" I thought excitedly. I was really glad to be of help.

The next day, the first thing I asked when I saw her was that, “Were you able to go to the doctor?”

She eagerly announced to me. “No, I didn’t!”

“How come?” I worriedly asked.

“You will never guess what happened! This morning when I woke up I was all set to go to the doctor when I discovered my eye wasn’t RED anymore! My family was even surprised. They said bruises usually take a few days or almost a week before it gets healed. Sis, you must have a healing gift!”

Super Powers?


I was amazed and delighted as I laughed out loud. My thoughts were running here and there. “Was it really true? Do I really have a healing gift?” I looked at Macon’s eye again. Indeed the redness was gone. When I rushed to Daisy and told her about it, all she said was, “Now do you believe me?”

“It felt so good being able to help.” I admitted honestly. I could feel the adrenalin rushing through my body. “You know it's as if I have suddenly been bestowed with super powers and I could actually have the chance to help many people.”

“Yaaahhh!” I kicked my right leg forward and swung my arm to cover my face. “Would you still recognize me if I put on a wonder woman suit?” I showed her some more kicks and arm movements to match. Daisy was laughing hysterically. “You are such a silly girl! But I’m happy that you are starting to be open about it.”

I knew I was just trying to lighten up a situation that was so serious to me. My heart was joyful but my mind was very doubtful. Plus I could hear the voices in my head ranting and raving and detailing all the what if's and the why's and the how to's and so on and so forth.

But the eagerness of my spirit drew certain situations and events to me. I could feel God whispering to me softly. "My dear precious daughter. Do you still need more proof in order to believe me? Okay, proof coming up!" I grinned back at God, curious as always.

Dayzeebee called my attention to one of our brothers in community. I learned that he had injured his back as he transferred some heavy equipment. He was not able to sleep the past night because of the pain. As I laid my hands on his back, I could feel the bones protruding from his lower spine and was amazed that he could still stand. "O-oh! This is something serious! What am I going to do now?" I thought, motioning to Daisy to feel the bones too. “Oh goodness!" She gasped. "Bro, you have to go to the hospital and have an x-ray."

I knew this brother couldn't afford it, more so if it required expensive treatment. Compassion filled me and I mouthed to Daisy. "It's okay. I'll try."

"Are you sure?" She mouthed back. I nodded and closed my eyes and prayed to God to return the bones to its proper position. For a scaredy cat who didn't know anything, I just felt so calm as I continued to lay my hands on his back.

Four days later, I saw him again during our gathering. He was fixing the equipment on stage. Believe it or not, when I felt his back, the bones were back in its place. No more sharp bones protruding. Daisy felt his back too. We both looked at each other and simultaneously shouted and jumped for joy.

That brother shared that the pain had slowly subsided as the days passed after that healing session. In fact, he was even able to join the Singles gathering and did some swimming in the beach.

My heart was so full that day. I had seen the power of the healing touch. I guess my life is never going to be the same again.

Enjoyed reading part 2, and looking forward to part 3! This is so cool to see real proof with healing; however as you become more and more involved with healing, I heard a healer has to learn how to cleanse their energy fields, in order to not pick up the traumas of others, or something like that. Its just something that came to mind of what I read in one of my many books.

And thank you for helping me make the "wonder michelle" photo. hahaha

Hi Michelle. I've been thinking of you and Daisy every day. Soon, I shall write again.

I just love that picture of you in the Wonder Woman suit!! That is soooo funny!

Thank-you for sharing this with us.

Hi Shirley! It's wonderful to hear from you, as always. LOL I can't even begin to imagine me in that suit. But I was laughing too when I asked help from Daisy to make that photo for me. Hehehe Yes! I am starting to share and couldn't have done it without the prodding of so many angels God has sent me, including you. :) A big hug with lots of love and light to you all the way from where I am right now.

hi tich! im glad i came across your hub. i was scanning through t.susan's hub and here i am. i loved reading your hub tich and i can't help but get teary-eyed. . my friends and i met an accident last october after the bar in tarlac. her's the news article in CDN about it:

Cebu Daily NewsFirst Posted 12:55:00 10/10/2008

Seven law graduates from the University of San Carlos (USC), their driver and two others were hurt after a passenger bus hit the sport utility vehicle they were riding along the national highway in Gerona, Tarlac province, on Wednesday, police said.

Senior Insp. Crescencio Cuaresma, Gerona police chief, said the victims — Michael Abad, 24; Rocel Gallo, 25; Honey Ang, 24; Andrei Seno (identified as Andrei Sina in the police report), 24; Maria Carmen Tormis, 25; Alexa Lelis, 24; and Jerome Abayon, 24; and their driver, Ryan Yap (?), 35 — were on their way to Metro Manila when the accident happened in barangay Poblacion 3 about 5:30 a.m.

Alex Monteclar, dean of the of the USC College of Law, said he was informed by Andrei Seno's father, former Mandaue City mayor Amadeo Seno.He said he only knew that Andrei broke his leg and would probably be airlifted (?) from Manila to Cebu City.

Cuaresma said the group came from a tour of Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur. He said the victims' Kia SUV occupied the opposite lane and was sideswiped by a northbound Genesis Bus driven by Eladio Balatbat. It was the next vehicle, a Dominion Bus driven by Cesar Añonuevo, which hit the victims' car, Cuaresma said.

He said the victims were taken to the Jecsons Hospital in Tarlac City for treatment.

They were released about 1 p.m. also on Wednesday. /INQUIRER WITH REPORTER DALE G. ISRAEL

when i read about your healing experience with a brother of yours in the community, i was thinking if i could experience that healing miracle with you tich. i know tita daisy would frown at me for not nurturing my gift. i admit, i have been weak and like you before, im not ready. and i couldn't be any stronger now with my situation. i am just thankful im still alive. though there are days that i get depressed. my collar bone near my left arm broke coz of the accident. i cant write, nor move it with so much ease. i cant do so much actually except sit down and lie down. and that's where i get depressed the most. i have been wearing a brace and sling for 4 weeks now. im scheduled to have a repeat xray next week to see if the bones have started to connect. the doctor said i have to go under therapy once the brace is removed. he also said that my full arm strength will be restored and a solid bone will be formed after 6 months. i have stopped counting the days tich. im just praying and praying for another miracle. i would love to drop by dynamics and see you personally. pls do contact me tich. my globe and sun nos are still the same. help me plant a seed of hope in me tich...

My Dearest Carmen, my heart goes out to you. We just heard about the accident from Laurice (who met cora in the mall). Stella, Susan and I have made plans to visit you. We're just finishing all the details for the Parent-teacher conference tomorrow. Yes, I assure you Daisy and I will make time to have healing sessions with you. I know it is not a coincidence that you are brought to this hub. Today I celebrate that you are alive. Loving you much with God's love. {((hugs))}

Ripple- You be awesome! Be careful not to get "I'm all that." Remember to be "normal." That is sometimes the hardest thing to be... especially when you're "gifted." We all have gifts... of various kinds. Take it in stride...

ripplemaker 8 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Hi Constant Walker, my sage friend. The last time I checked I was still pretty "normal" LOL Ask Daisy. She knows me very well (Chuckles) Well, I know that my relationship with God is the one that helps me take things in stride. :) And I thank God for that! Thanks for dropping by! :)

Hi, Rip,

I do believe that some people have a gift of healing simply by touching another. Please don't laugh because I'm serious here, but my husband has that gift even though he doesn't really think much about it. When my stomach is giving me problems, I ask him to "spoon" me when we go to sleep and his backside is especially healing...I told you not to laugh because I'm TOTALLY SERIOUS! We can't knock it if it works! Also, and not so weird, if he touches my head when I have a migraine or rubs my neck, where the pain usually begins, it lessens almost immediately.

I would bet that someday, medical science will prove that there are those individuals who have the gift of relieving pain and even of curing distresses within the body. I'm excited for you and the people near you who will benefit from your "talent."

Hi Madison, please extend my regards to your husband. :) It's nice to know kindered spirits. I thank you for sharing your experience, I find that sweet and definitely pretty normal for me. Well, because that is what I do and what I receive if I am the one in pain. LOL Actually there are already studies about this and more and more are aware of it. As for accepting and believing it could really happen, that's another story. Thanks for dropping by and journeying with me. Take care... :)

Real-life affirmation of the gift of healing must bring joy to your soul.

The gift of healing is real and was one of the first gifts stewarded to the apostles of Jesus to build His church and ministry.

Your gift will do so as well. Your spirit is very bright! Your words are a joy to read!

Blessings always!

My dear Michelle, I can only imagine how powerful your healing abilities can be (why don´t you come and visit me here in Portugal!? :D). After your distant healing help I´m curious to "feel" the touch of your hands directly over my wrists. Now that I think about it it is not that unusual to have people saying to me that I have my hands very hot. Who knows maybe I should also try it on others and see what happen... ;)

See what you have made, now I´m jealous of your healing capabilities LOL

Listen to Dayzeebee, she knows what she´s talking about. Fly and be happy!

Have fun! :-)

ripplemaker 8 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Hi funride, oh I would love to do that--touch your wrists directly. Maybe someday. LOL But as for you, go on, try it. If you desire to help others heal, then it will be so! :) You are a nice person Ricardo. I am glad that in my journey in life, I met you. :)

Michelle! I read your hub when it first came hot off the presses and I was sure I left a comment but coming back to reread your great hub I can't see my note to you. Well there is only one way to fix that...

Michelle once again a super duper hub. I love it and will come back to it often when I need an uplifting moment. Looking forward to part three.

ripplemater - I have also prayed about what comment to post here. First, congratulatios on your gift. I praise God for your delight in being used by Him. I am primariy a teacher, and I often do early training those with what would be called "supernatural gifts" I will assure you that "hot hands" are a common phenomenon of the gif"

Two more things:

1. A confirming scripture: Acts 19:11: Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul,

2. It has been my experience that after a healing, that just as a physical doctor needs to "clean up" both before and after surgery, a spiritual healer needs to spend a lot of time with God both before and after the healing. I encourage all Christians to spend as much time with God as possible. But for those who are called as you are ... it is more important.

I hope I have not presumed too much upon your gifting by giving advise you did not request. I mean it only as the advice from a loving big brother. Thank you for sharing.

Hi BDazzler, God sends a lot of "big brothers and sisters" to help me in my journey. I do not mind at all. :) You help people with gifts? That's a wonderful misson! There is so much wisdom in what you said about spending a lot of time with God. He is the Greatest Healer / Teacher after all. Thank you for your beautiful comment/sharing.

BDazzler 8 years ago from Gulf Coast, USA

Thanks! Yes, usually it entials someone walking upt to me and saying something like "Uh...Please don't think I'm crazy, but God told me to talk to you." I usually get the ones who are just starting out. Typically they're prophetic people. I usually tell them something like, "Well, you might be crazy, but that doesn't make you wrong." The joke usually helps.

ripplemaker profile image

ripplemaker 8 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Hahaha that is so cute! I also like that-people approaching you and telling you they had to talk to you. I believe it's the other way around now. God is telling you to talk to me. LOL God does that a lot to me too. When I do not listen because I am scared, He sends somebody around. Now I am laughing and just being joyful. :) It feels good to be loved by God.

BDazzler profile image

BDazzler 8 years ago from Gulf Coast, USA

Yes! Always hang on to these truths:

1. God is Good all the time, He can never be anything but good.

2. God is showing His love through you in a wonderful partnership with Him, so the people you help can have that same wonderful partnershp.

3. Never embrace disappointment. When you feel disappointed run to your True Love ... God!  A wise man said, Turn the Psalms until you find your voice. And cry out to God. Every human emotion. Every failure and every victory is in that book.

4. He wants ALL his children to live with him in this supernatural state. Your work is a testimony to what God wants to do for everybody.

God also tells me your laughter makes Him smile very big! He delights in your laughter!
