It makes use of a gentle non-physical energy, which the healer has learnt to access through quiet personal development and extensive training. As practised at the White Eagle Lodge, healing is compatible with all other recognised therapies and does not in any way, set out to replace medical treatment. www.whiteagle.org

' Our consciousness has a healing power... Healing has many avenues. When we feel anger, distress, or despair, we only need to breathe in and out consciously and recognise the feeling of anger, distress, or despair, and then we can leave the work of healing to our consciousness. But it is not only by touching our pain that we can heal. In fact, if we are not ready to do that, touching it may only make it worse. We have to strengthen ourselves first, and the easiest way to do this is by touching joy and peace. ' Thich Nhat Hanh    From 'Touching Peace, Pracitising the Art of Mindful Living'. Published by Parallax Press, CaliforniaOur consciousness has a healing power
' Take a day to heal from the lies you've told yourself and the ones that have been told to you. ' Maya Angelou   
' We must first take a stroll through the muddy thorns and twigs before understanding the process of true inner healing. ' Lindsay Ullmann   
' We must embrace pain and use it as fuel for our journey. ' Kenji Miyazawa    http://www.buzzle.com/articles/healing-quotes.html
' One cannot tell when he is going to be healed, so do not try to set an exact time limit. Faith, not time, will determine when the cure will be effected. ' Paramahansa Yogananda

' My working life was one of performance, solving problems and never permitting mistakes to be made. Retirement gave me the time to find poetry. My work-shaped ‘being’ slowly opened up to the beauty of the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins who found God in nature and whose poems exude the power of his belief in God’s presence in the natural world around us. Retirement led me and my wife to North East Hampshire and the beautiful heathland, commons and woods that surround our home. Cycling the bridleways on my mountain bike, I was overwhelmed by the ever-changing magnificence of this quietly stunning environment. I began inwardly to sense what Hopkins experienced. As I looked towards the South Downs on the horizon I thought of his words from various poems: ’…and the azurous hung hills are his world-wielding shoulder/ Majestic – as a stallion stalwart, very-violet-sweet !... High there, how he rung upon the rein of a wimpling wing/ In his ecstasy! Then off, off forth on swing,/ As a skate’s heel sweeps smooth on a bow-bend: the hurl and gliding...All things counter, original, spare, strange;/ Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how ?)/ With swift, slow; sweet, sour, adazzle, dim;/ He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change: Praise him.’

My very personal feeling is that nature can and does provide healing, protection and regeneration to those who (to quote Hopkins again) ‘have trod, have trod, have trod’ for most of their lives' ' Fred Robins    The Healing Power of Nature
' We need to feed ourselves up with positive energy and then dance off the vibrations. ' Lindsay Ullmann   
' Pain is a part of personal growth, it is a weed that eventually dies out or gets yanked up so that a flower can blossom. ' Lindsay Ullmann   
' How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world ' Shakespeare   
' As a professional healer, people often ask me: 'Helen, what is it that you do?' I believe that all my work falls into the category of healing. That the people I come into contact with are sent to me in order that I can fill them with positivity and healing energy, so they can face whatever challenge lies before them. Whether I am administering hands-on healing to allieviate a physical illness, or giving you a message from your family in spirit or from one of the many Guides, Guardian Guides, Angels or Arch-Angels that I am able to see, or even if I send you absent healing from many miles away...it all comes under the auspices of healing. ' Helen Parry Jones    Extract from 'Hands of an Angel'. Published by Random House, 2011. http://www.helenparry-jones.com/testimonials/press.html
