Spiritual healing is an ancient concept that has its adherents with the Bible. However, in recent years spiritual healing has witnessed immense popularity in various parts and corners of the world. Spiritual healers believe that the therapeutic effect results from the channeling of healing "energy" from an assumed source via the healer to the patient. The central claim of healers is that they promote or facilitate self-healing in the patient and inspire a warm and positive light on its mention. It additionally gives a sense of relaxation and lightness, like everything in life is right, and that the hardships are finally over. However, the feeling it inspires is not necessarily true to or applicable in the practical process of healing.
In reality, the process of healing is often confusing and hard. Sometimes, it may even feel like one's world is coming apart. In such a circumstance, it is easy to get hopeless and feel like giving up. However, one must remember that sometimes the world as we know it has to come apart to broaden our horizons and introduce us to a new, bigger, and better world. And in order to be a part of this improved horizon, we have to go through a difficult journey.

Once out, all physical and mental issues created by these negative emotions/energy heal independently.
Almost everybody has their personalised meaning associated with the word spirituality. In a broader sense, it means being connected to the human spirit. The path of spirituality is tedious and long but once found, it can spell drastic changes in one's mental health. Spirituality allows a person to feel a sense of purpose, hope, and faith, which has massive impacts on calming anxiety and depression that are often characterised by the lack of these feelings. It can also contribute significantly towards improving the self-image and confidence of a person.
