Does someone you love need healing work, but they’re not in a place to do it themselves?

Maybe they’re too young, too ill, or they simply reject the idea of energy healing altogether.

What does exactly “healing by proxy” mean?

A proxy is an object used by a healing practitioner to represent the recipient of the healing energy. The proxy is used in place of the person, animal or whatever, that can not be in physical presence at the time of the healing.

My favourite proxy is an eye pillow, but we can use a teddy bear, a picture of the person, a doll, a handkerchief, a statue, a rock or whatever we feel comfortable with. The proxy helps the healing channel focus and direct the energy needed by the recipient. The client receives the energy through the proxy, because that's what the healing practitioner has set it up to do.

This doesn’t mean the healing work is done for the recipient.

It is like opening the energy for someone you love so they can make a shift in their life. Think of it as opening a door, yet they still have to move through the door. 

Giving yourself or someone you know this gift of healing is an empowering decision you make from your heart.

All I need is a full name, a location or/and a photo and a brief description of the problem.

Setting The Intent Of A Proxy

Setting the proxy is really very easy. Find an object that you'll want to use for your proxy. Prepare your space as you would for any spiritual exercise. Then set your intent and begin. The following is a brief example of how I learnt to do it at The Arthur Findlay College.

  1. Prepare your ritual space. Choose a place where you will not be disturbed for about 15-20 minutes.

  2. Light a candle or some incense and say a personal prayer asking your guides, teachers, angels, and your personal Divine force(s) to assist you with this healing.

  3. Now sit in a comfortable position and place your proxy in front of you.

  4. Close your eyes and take in a few deep cleansing breaths.

  5. Imagine a white inner glow of divine light building within your solar plexus.

  6. With each breath, the light enlarges until your entire body is fully engulfed with the Divine light.

  7. Imagine the face and essence of the individual who will be receiving your healing energy. Hold this image of them in your hands. If you don't know their face, think about their name and location.

  8. Once you feel comfortable with the connection you've made, slowly lower your hands to the proxy. As you place your hands on the proxy, say to yourself or out loud, "I place 'their name', upon this object and ask that this 'teddy bear' (or whatever) signify, connect with and represent the physical being of 'their name'. For the highest good and Divine purpose of all concerned, I ask this to be at this time for the purposes of receiving a healing (or state what your purpose is to be). So be it."

  9. Once the healing has been conducted, break the connection between proxy and your energy.

  10. Then acknowledge the healing has concluded and they will be released at this time.

  11. Imagine their face gently and peacefully fading, closing the doorway between your psyche and theirs.

  12. Place your hands over the proxy, but don't touch it. I usually put the proxy in its packaging before starting the healing ritual. I also imagine a burst of Divine protection, cleansing and purification energy blasting the proxy from the inside out.

  13. I thank the proxy for its services. I thank all my guides, teachers and so on for their help and assistance. And then I give a final prayer of thanks to the Divine forces for allowing me to be a channel of healing and I ask that the session now be closed.


Now remember this is just a suggested method. Try different variations for yourself until you find the right combination that works best for you. Just remember your intent is what's most important here. How you conduct the 'ritual' can be refined with time, practice and experience. Give yourself a chance to make a few mistakes. Keep a log of your trials. Make notes about those practices you like and notations about those you didn't and give yourself a few suggestions for how to do it next time.


With a bit of practice, you'll be able to provide absentee healings to anyone, anywhere and at any time.

Good Luck!

I wish us the best,
