Hands heal from afar

SPECIAL GIFT: Ron Wilding has had an amazing journey as a healer over the past 65 years.

“YOU’RE probably going to think this is a bit queer,” says the old bloke sitting opposite me.

“But I can heal people hundreds of kilometres away.”

I am not sure why Ron Wilding thinks I might find it queer. If he can heal people when they are not present, without laying a hand on them, why should it matter if they are around the corner or hundreds of kilometres away?

The Wurtulla 81-year-old practises what is termed absent or remote healing: a healing in which the healer and the patient do not need to be in the same room.

Directed by his spirit guides, Ron “sees” his way through the patient’s body, patching wounds and sore areas with what the lay person might think of as conceptual healing gel, tape and gauze which ordinary, untrained eyes cannot see.

Some people might think it “queer” but if it is a joke or scam, it is a long-lived one.

Ron conducted his first healing nigh on 65 years ago.

He had fallen in with meditation groups where he lived in Western Australia, and it was through one of these that he was asked to conduct a healing session for a young woman with varicose veins.

According to his latest book, My Journey as a Healer, her condition improved remarkably following the session and Ron gradually gained more practice and proficiency at healing.

Vinnie Pinto, a United States healer of some renown, rates Ron as having an 80% success rate, well above the average 30% of other healers.

Two of Ron’s three books have sections specially dedicated to testimonials from happy customers who had consulted him in pain, illness and difficulty, yet find their symptoms disappear after a consultation.

“Tests on my lungs showed that I had some emphysema and I would get short of breath after any kind of physical exertion,” writes Edgar Manaway, of Colorado, in the United States.

“After the healing from Ron, my lungs cleared up in a remarkable way.”

And writes Jack, also of the United States: “I am happy to report that after Ron’s healing session, my left inguinal muscle appears to have healed up entirely. The area is flat like the other side and there is no swelling or pain.”

Ron has no explanation for his apparent ability to fix others’ ailments other than his six spiritual guides (“Kids might call them angels”) show him what to do.

Although he is a chef by trade, he has made a study of anatomy, helped along by a spell working at a hospital where he was able to observe autopsies.

Although Ron’s healing work will appear supernatural to some, he looks far from the mystic.

He lives in an ordinary brick house with a better-than-ordinary garden, two cupboards of teddy bears belonging to his collector wife, a room with a massage table for some hands-on healing, and a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel who regards himself as ruler of it all.

Prospective patients tend to find their way to him either by word of mouth or via his website.

He rises at 4am to answer emails and often works through until 9am or 10am to reply and answer requests for healings.

He said all he needed to perform a healing was the address of a person, and their permission.

“I can’t do it without their permission. It would be an invasion of privacy,” he said.

He could not name anything that he could not heal, except for himself. He has had surgery for cancer in recent years, and is now all clear, but believes he was unable to heal himself because it is impossible to give as well as receive healing simultaneously.

He has three protégés who have been studying healing under him, although none appear to have yet reached his level of prowess.

“I’ll just keep doing it for as long as I can,” he said.
