The person can just see what’s in remote places using his or her spiritual eyes.
- Psychic healing: The ability to heal physical ailments or injuries with spiritual healing. Psychic healers oftentimes use various objects or techniques to do the healing, such as use incense, prayers, chants, rattles, dances, and more. Each healer may have their own unique healing method based on what works for them. Some are able to hear angels or spirits tell them what to do from the other side of the veil or they may know intuitively what’s wrong with the person. Emotional and physical healings can occur.
