Guided Healing

by Peter Calvert

Only available from Attar Books
Guided Healing contains two urgent messages. One presents guidance for all spiritual seekers, the other is addressed specifically to potential healers.

To spiritual seekers, Guided Healing presents a novel view of the spiritual purpose and benefits of being born into a physical body. Issues covered include the relationship between the spiritual and physical realms, the reason for incarnation, the use of meditation as a means for exploring the spiritual realm, and the significance of soul work.

To healers, Guided Healing offers instruction on how to become a conduit for healing energy that emanates from the spiritual realm. Topics covered include how to contact guides in the spiritual realm, the nature of spiritual perception, and factors which enhance or hinder energy flow during the act of healing.

Most significantly, the text introduces the concept of agapéic space as a way to discuss spiritual existence and humanity’s role in it. It reveals how agapé – spiritual love – underlies all existence, and what is required of us in order to tune into it.

Using concepts drawn from science and contemporary culture, Guided Healing presents a vision of human spirituality appropriate for our times, as we move out of traditional, paternalistic religious allegories and into a rational appreciation of what being spiritual involves.

Peter Calvert is a writer and channeller. He is a Reiki master and past-life regression therapist who is practised in Vipassana mediation, Holotropic Breathwork, spiritualist platform mediumship and energywork. He has written a number of channelled books on spirituality, including Agapé and the Hierarchy of Love and The Matapaua Conversations (with Keith Hill).

On this occasion, material on healing through spiritual love is presented in order to make a marketable product, as this is the means by which such information is commonly dispersed. It is not our preferred method. It is a commercial method. It would be better done by direct teaching, rather than through the intermediary of the printed word and image. However, given that an intermediary is required as a form of advertising, we duly provide this information in what we consider to be an optimal form. That may or may not meet with the expectations or preferences of those who compile or deliver or select this material. That is outside our control.

This primer addresses guided healing as a practice, love as a state of mind necessary as a prerequisite for guided healing, and lust as a necessary aspect to be dealt with and detached from prior to cross-gender healing.

It also deals with personal encounters in the discarnate realm and with its inhabitants, beings who have traditionally been known as “angels”. Stripping them of the divine status they have been accorded historically, a more prosaic understanding of their nature remains. In the simplified and demythologised view of the world generated by the present culture, it is no longer appropriate to view with alarm or awe the denizens of the spiritual domain. They should merely be viewed as occupying another, but equal, domain in which conditions are different, and that therefore generate different capacities in its inhabitants. But those inhabitants have no greater intrinsic worth than incarnate humans or any other species in the physical domain.

Working relationships are what matter. Trust is of the essence. Love is a prerequisite. These truths are no different from what has been communicated a thousand times before. The difference is the willingness of the hearer to acknowledge the working relationship aspect in preference to the deferential aspect – and to develop such a relationship.


Guided healing is an invoking, by the healer, of input from the spiritual realm, then directing it by intention to assist the recipient, the healee. The healer agrees to use her or his interior sensory system to convey information about healees to them for their benefit.

How to invoke input? First, to avoid the unnecessary, unhealthy and pernicious use of their own energy, healers must know there is a spiritual source in existence and available to them.

Second, they must specifically ask for spiritually directed energy to flow through them to the intended recipient, and hold that intention for the duration of its flow.

Third, they must seal their own being on the energetic level to avoid inadvertent contamination being absorbed from the recipient. For this reason it is important not to undertake healing work when one is ill or depleted for any reason.

For those wishing to learn how to heal, there are two aspects that must be made plain in advance. These relate, firstly, to clarity of intention, and secondly, to sources of confusion of motives prevalent in the domain of spiritual healing work, whether with the public or family.

The prime energy involved in healing is the force of love. The willingness to accord with healees’ best wishes is a necessary adjunct to the ability to love them in a simple and unconfused way. To achieve this the nature of love must be understood.


Love acts through the healer's intention to interact with others deficient in energy in their lives. That deficiency creates in the deficient recognition on some level that all is not optimal within them. This realisation leads them to wish for improvement, particularly by restoring to normality the life force operating within them. Such deficient people subsequently recognise opportunities, either consciously or subconscious, to obtain the love-force energy that is available around them.


When, in those who are deficient in energy, recognition of opportunities to restore energy only operates on the subconscious level, conscious decisions to seek energy restoration cannot be made. However, such persons will unconsciously use restoration opportunities which arise in normal social intercourse. But they will not know why others find them draining, as they do not know about their tendency to seek such satisfaction of their needs without asking permission.

More conscious people will register that they are deficient in energy, and if they are sufficiently honest about their needs, they will seek a formal relationship with another person who can supply their needs in a straightforward way, thereby recovering their internal harmony and balance.

Others less honest, but still conscious, will manipulate other people via sexual or social encounters to obtain what they need, not differentiating between the sexual, social and energetic aspects of their functioning. Still others will cry with exhaustion, feel depleted, and even despair for their future, without recognising or understanding the source of their need. These scenarios give some idea of the variety of behaviours normally undertaken by the person deficient in life energy for whatever reason.

If a person who is alert and aware on the energetic level is placed into any of these scenarios, he or she will encounter and recognise all the various subterfuges used by these less aware individuals, and either avoid them wherever possible, or in goodwill consciously offer his or her services as channels for the life-force, intending a restorative outcome.

Such people are acknowledged healers, who in their turn manifest a range of levels of consciousness of their actions. And when we say, “acknowledged”, we mean acknowledged by spirit. For none emerge as contributors to the health of humanity who do not have a guide at their side attempting to prompt them into awareness of both their contribution and their capacity to improve it. For the need is large and the consciousness small in these times of disbelief in gifts of the spirit.


Where a person recognises she or he has a capacity to make a contribution, and is sufficiently generous in nature to wish to expand that capacity for the good of others, such a one is encouraged, from the level of their higher self, to develop an inward relationship and focus. This inner life, as alluded to by all mystics in more or less obscure ways, is in fact potentially a straightforward development of a relationship with their inner self, and through that self to those who wait beyond it, in the shadows of the mind, for the identity to be touched by love from the spiritual domain.

There is a growing awareness on all levels of humanity that real results of the spiritual force manifest through effects created between the frequency field of spirit and matter existing in the physical domain. These interactions have been described with varying degrees of clarity throughout the ages. However, recent technological innovations involving radio and television have given most of humanity the conceptual tools to readily appreciate and distinguish frequency selection through “tuning”, which is based on the phenomenon of resonance.

These concepts usefully describe phenomena of the spiritual domain. This is because it is essentially a process of tuning which enables a specific human identity to connect to the level necessary for channelling healing energy originating from a higher frequency spiritual domain into the lower frequency physical domain. Thus it is as a result of tuning that the healing process is activated.

Once activated, the deficient person’s own connection is restored, and unless other factors intervene to re-block or disconnect the healed person again, she or he tends to stay well, or at least to be better than before.


The issue of lust has caused many potentially fine healers to back away for good from the work of attending to another person’s bodily functioning by manipulating their energetic form.

It is a necessary component of the healing act that heart-level intention be manifested as feelings of love for the recipient. However, that act is too easily confused with the cultural response of lust, which must be determined as an irresponsible confusion of intention.

This confusion of intention may be clarified by acknowledging the climate of responsibility within which one functions for the duration of life incarnate. After that other networks of responsibility result in different outcomes, and the issue does not arise, as intention there is a defining parameter in actions, and no confusion exists or can arise.

In the meantime, in this physical domain, allowance must be made for confusion and mixed intentions. Therefore training explicitly addressing these facts will be helpful. We intend to supply such training in all that follows.
