How the mind can heal

The following is an e-mail I received from Crisanto Aquino, who attended my recent seminar on “Self-Healing Through Visualization.”

“I would like to thank you for the wonderful experience that my wife and I had in your workshop.

“It was great, and we didn’t expect it. I was diagnosed three years ago with a herniated disc, and the doctor at St. Luke’s told me I should undergo surgery to replace the disc in the lumbar area.


“I sought another opinion. At this time, a computer technician whom I met before and never met again came to our home to repair our computer.  He saw me at the time I was in excruciating pain and I could neither sit nor walk. He told me he knew someone who is a good therapist, an old man.

“In just one session, I was able to stand and walk. Later, he came to our house regularly. I was so grateful because God sent a stranger to help me. But the old man passed away a couple of years ago, and somehow I felt uneasy at the thought of this illness recurring.

“There were times when I felt a slight pain in my left leg, and I knew that this had something to do with my herniated disc.

“My wife heard you were going to have a healing workshop, and because she knew that I love reading your books, she asked me if I would like to attend your workshop. I told her that I would go if she went with me.

“At first, she was hesitant, but then she did. I was so happy with the result of the workshop because not only did I see you, but the slight recurring pain in my left leg is gone, or let me say, it was healed—it’s unbelievable but it’s true!

Bright light

“My wife, Ma. Socorro, was also amazed by the workshop, and she also has a story to tell. She will send you an e-mail.  She told me that during the visualization, she was not aware that she had visualized the ngalay in both her legs.  She saw a chair in front of her, and later it disappeared. Then after opening her eyes, she felt the ngalay was gone.

“I also want to tell you that while you were in front giving a lecture, I suddenly felt my head become light, and right after, I saw a bright light surrounding you. I looked at the other persons in the room, but there was no light around them. I tried closing my eyes but I could still see more light. I saw the same light around the head of a priest before.


“I have also had several strange experiences in the past. I was still courting my wife when I heard voices of happy people inside the house of my parents-in-law. Just recently, I saw, from the corners of my eyes, a boy who walked across our front door. I asked my wife if she left the gate open because I saw a stranger walk across our front door; she replied that the gate was closed and there was no one in the garage.

“Are these signs that I was able to go down to the Alpha level of brainwaves or could I go even further? Do I have a third eye? How will it help me and my family if I have to develop this ability?

“My wife and I would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to you and your secretary Desdy for accommodating us in your workshop. It is worth more than what we paid for. I am interested in further developing my abilities. What next workshop/seminar should we attend?”

Dear Mr. Aquino,

Thank you for your feedback about the effect of the self-healing seminar on you and your wife.

The human mind is capable of many extraordinary feats, especially in the areas of healing and the attainment of one’s goals. Unfortunately, it is not given much importance by the medical establishment. But this attitude is changing among the younger medical practitioners.

Third eye

This is not the first time that somebody has reported seeing a bright light around me when I am teaching. I suppose that what you saw was my aura, which brightens up or expands when I am lecturing.

Your experience strongly indicates an open third eye and sensitivity to the spirit world. You may develop further this ability by attending my ESP seminar, and reading books on this field. Such ability has many practical benefits in our daily life. There is scientific evidence of the correlation between strong ESP and business success.


The next Soulmates, Karma and Reincarnation seminar is on April 20, from 1 to 7 p.m., and the two-day Basic ESP seminar is on April 27-28, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., both at Rm. 308 Prince Plaza I, Legazpi St., Greenbelt, Makati City.
