Betty Shine - Spiritual Medium and Healer
Betty Shine was a gifted spiritualist medium and healer from England. She was born in 1929 and passed over in 2003 at the age of 73. Before embarking on her healing and clairvoyant careers, she sang professionally. At times she also delved into vitamin and mineral therapy as well as medical hand analysis. She also taught yoga.
As a child Betty had many psychic experiences. She often had a male voice talking to her and assumed everyone did. She realized this wasn't the case when comparing notes with a friend.
Betty Shine suffered for many years with choking fits, dizziness and palpitations. Doctors were unable to help her situation. Fearing that she may be going to die she visited a well known medium by the name of Charles Horrey. Charles Horrey told Betty that she was to be a healer and the attacks were caused by a build up of unused energy. He told Betty that once she started healing her health problems would clear up, and they did. He told her she was also going to be a great medium.
As her healing work expanded Betty Shine was able to see mind energy which she felt resembled a halo as portrayed in biblical times. She assigned various mind exercises to help her clients improve their mind energy, and hence improve their situation. If a client was depressed their mind energy would funnel in toward their head. As her healing sessions continued this energy would change its shape and begin to radiate out as a healthy mind would.
Betty Shine wrote many books in her lifetime. Three that I have stress the importance of using your mind energy to help you achieve what you want in this lifetime. She encourages people to use their mind energy and their visualization skills to achieve whatever they want. She also compiled a mind workbook with all the exercises from her previous books to link mind, body and spirit.
The first thing I tried as recommended by Betty Shine was to attempt absent healing. Betty suggested imagining you had your hands on the recipients shoulders and that you ask for healing to be put through the patient. You concentrate on the person for around five minutes asking for healing of whatever is troubling them. When beginning the healing session visualize the person, say their name and where they live (town), either out loud or to yourself, and begin the healing. As Betty became known the people asking for absent healing from her grew to huge proportions. She would write their names on pieces of paper and ask for healing to all the people named. She did this twice a day.
Another exercise to relieve stress goes like this. Find a nice quiet room and lay down on the floor and close your eyes. Hopefully the room is carpeted. Close your eyes. Breathe deeply three times. Try to breathe through your nose so the air makes a slight hissing sound as you breathe in. Hold the third breath for as long as possible, then let it out in small puffs. As you do this you will feel energy circulating throughout your body and you will begin to feel warm. You may also feel a bit lightheaded, if so, do not hold your breath for so long next time. Repeat three times. Now visualize energy building up underneath your body. little by little, until it is a sold mass. When you are successful with this part of the exercise, move on. You will feel at this point as though you are going to levitate, and that you are in a dream state. Forget everything and enjoy every minute. Stay with it.
When Betty Shine first started healing she was still working, but as time went on Betty gave up her job to heal full time and this often had her working into the night. As her healing abilities increased so did her mediumship. During the healing sessions she would pass on messages from loved ones to the person receiving healing. Sometimes she would feel the need to use hypnosis on her client, and although she had never studied hypnosis this ability came to her when required.
Betty Shine was an amazing lady, who healed many, many people during her lifetime. The people she couldn't cure, she was able to alleviate some of their symptoms. Her study of mind energy fascinated me enough to practice some of her exercises and also to learn healing myself.
