Esoteric Healing - Chapter I - The Psychological Causes of Disease
The second rule for the healer is as follows:

Rule two
The healer must achieve magnetic purity through purity of life. He must attain that dispelling radiance which shows itself in every man when he has linked the centers in the head. When this magnetic field is established, the radiation too goes forth. [31]

The significance of this will be somewhat apparent to the advanced esoteric student. As you know, the magnetic field is established when the powerful vibration of the center in front of the pituitary body, and the center around and above the pineal gland, swing into each other's orbit. The only controversial point in connection with the above rule (which we shall have later to consider) is how and in what manner magnetic purity is to be achieved, and how the two centers in the head can form together one magnetic field. Later, in our conclusion, which is intended to be intensely practical, I will touch upon these two points.

One of the things which should definitely emerge in our studies is the fact that disease is seldom of individual origin, unless a man misspends his life and definitely misuses his body (through drink or sexual dissipation), and that the bulk of the disease to be found in the world today is almost entirely of group origin, is inherited, is the result of infection, or the result of undernourishment. The last named cause is primarily an evil of civilization; it is the result of economic maladjustment or the corruption of food. As I earlier pointed out, these latter causes of disease are not primarily the result of inner subtle forces, but are the pouring upwards, into the etheric body, of energies from the physical plane itself and from the outer world of forces.

Little attention has been paid by occult teachers to these forces which come from without, which originate upon the physical plane, and which affect the inner bodies. There are physical energy and streams of force entering into the etheric bodies of all forms, just as the world illusion and the miasmas of the astral plane oft have their causes in physical plane conditions. The energies entering into the centers of man from the subtler levels have oft been considered in occult books, but the forces which find their way into the centers from the world of physical plane life [32] are seldom realized or discussed. This is a somewhat new thought which I offer for your consideration.

I have asked A.A.B. to insert a very brief synopsis of some of the points I have already made under the heading, What is Disease? I suggest the following:

  1. All disease is disharmony and lack of alignment and control.
    1. Disease is found in all the four kingdoms in nature.
    2. Disease is purificatory in effect.
    3. Definite methods of healing are peculiar to humanity, and mental in origin.
  2. Disease is a fact in nature.
    1. Antagonism to disease simply energizes it.
    2. Disease is not the result of wrong human thought.
  3. Disease is a process of liberation and the enemy of that which is static.
  4. The law of cause and effect governs disease as it governs all else in manifestation.

We found also that healing is brought about in three ways:

  1. Through the application of the methods of the many schools of medicine and surgery, and allied groups.
  2. Through the use of psychology.
  3. Through the activity of the soul.

I have also stated that the major causes of disease are three in number:

  • they are psychological in nature;
  • they are inherited through group contact; and
  • they are karmic.

Remember, however, that these are the secondary causes and with the first of these we will now deal. [33]
