SPIRITUAL HEALING ARE YOU A SCEPTIC?
If you are anything like me you will question the truth of anything that goes against what we regard as ‘normal’. I prefer not to take anything on face value and suggest to anyone reading this post that you do the same. I bought this book in 2016 shortly after arriving at my new home in Gozo, I lost track of the book after loaning it out but only yesterday had it returned so decided to further my research into this fascinating story.
Cain, John (1931-1985)
A British spiritual healer. Born on April 21, 1931 in Eastham, Wirral, England, he manifested healing ability at the age of six, when he used to stroke his mother’s forehead to relieve her attacks of migraine. After his twenty-first birthday, he joined the Royal Ordnance Corp of the British army as a physical training instructor; he also acquired a reputation for his skill in massage and manipulation. He left the army in 1952, worked in the shipyard at Birkenhead, then worked at window cleaning, logging, and site demolition.
In 1956 he started his own business as a blacksmith and became financially successful, employing 30 people and driving a Rolls Royce. In the same year, he married. Haunted by the thought that he was born to heal, he lost interest in the business. One morning, his anxieties were dispelled by an ecstatic mood of peace, and he heard the voice of his dead father saying, “Do not worry; born to heal, Dad.” In 1972 Cain became a full-time spiritual healer, treating a wide variety of disabilities. These included arthritis, diabetes, paralysis, hardening of the arteries, cervical spondilitis, and malignant growths.
Cain was an unconventional healer. He appeared to put people into an altered state of consciousness during which there seemed to be spontaneous improvement. Sometimes sufferers from muscular problems got up and danced; others performed what appeared to be yoga exercises. Cain believed spirit guides controlled his healing, and these were identified independently by other psychic mediums. Although Cain sometimes physically touched people, a great many of his cures were effected without any direct contact. He occasionally practiced absent healing.
Cain was investigated by parapsychologists and performed healing under laboratory conditions. He was tested by Japanese researchers in Tokyo in 1976, and also by Prof. John Taylor in London. In spite of Taylor’s skepticism about paranormal phenomena, his findings on Cain’s healing powers were positive. Cain also demonstrated successful healing sessions in Canada at Vancouver and Winnipeg.
Cain died in September 28, 1985, only a few days after publisher Peter Bander had approached him to discuss a second edition of the book Heal, My Son! He was one of the most celebrated British healers, whose talents were widely endorsed.
How we are related
I walked into an event being run by Philip a visitor from the UK and he said someone called J.C is watching over you! We had a bit of banter my initials J.C my dads were initials J.C. When I got home I contacted my big sister in the UK and told her about the night. Oh she said you won’t remember Dad seeing him and sleeping with his picture under his pillow, it caused an argument between him and mum (he was doing as told by John Cain to help him get over a recent death in the family).
There are many unexplained things in this world I try to approach this and everyone of them with an open mind. I’d appreciate your comments below even just one word.
