Reveals one of the best kept secrets in medical science -- prayer heals.

> CES MOTS QUI GUÉRISSENT, de Larry Dossey. — Lentement mais sûrement, le rôle de la prière sur la guérison commence à se faire connaître, à déborder le cercle des « croyants » pour gagner celui, par définition plus frileux, des médecins. On voit, notamment aux États-Unis, se multiplier les études scientifiques attestant l’existence d’un lien de cause à effet sans équivoque, aussi bien dans l’évolution des maladies cardio-vasculaire que des tumeurs ou des blessures : les effets de la prière ne dépendent ni de la présence de la personne traitée, ni de son éloignement (la guérison peut intervenir sur place ou à distance) et, phénomène encore plus dérangeant, ils peuvent même s’exercer à l’insu du patient qui, dans certains cas, ignore qu’on prie pour lui. Exil l’effet placebo, si commode à évoquer...
Lorsqu’il travaillait à l’hôpital de Dallas, le docteur Larry Dossey eut la curiosité d’explorer le dossier des vertus curatives de la prière. D’abord très sceptique, il fut contraint de réviser ses a priori : au terme de son enquête, ce drogué de science qui se considérait comme un athée, ne craignit pas d’affirmer que l’énorme accumulation de preuves de l’efficacité de la prière constituant le secret le mieux gardé de la science médicale. Superlatif absolu. En tant que praticien, il se trouvait au pied du mur : « Pour moi, ignorer les preuves de l’efficacité de la prière revenait en quelque sorte à trahir la tradition scientifique. » Il lui fallait donc prier pour ses patients. Oui mais prier qui, quoi, comment, quand, pour quels cas ? Pourquoi la prière si efficace ne marche-t-elle pas à tous les coups ? Dans Les mots qui guérissent, Dossey apporte des réponses essentielles sur la façon de prier, le sens des pratiques des chamans et des guérisseurs, la signification de la guérison ; il narre la prodigieuse alliance de Dieu (ou plus exactement du principe transcendant) et du laboratoire à travers les siècles et les différentes traditions. Au passage, il anéantit l’une des plus perverses croyances du New-Age selon laquelle il existe une corrélation entre le niveau spirituel d’un individu et son degré de santé physique (un beau moyen pour culpabiliser le malade !). Ce n’est pas le moindre mérite de ce livre passionnant qui ne cesse de bousculer les idées reçues. Ed. Jean-Claude Lattes. (M.-T. DE BROSSES)

> CES MOTS QUI GUÉRISSENT, de Larry Dossey, traduit de l’américain par Loïc Cohen. — L’auteur qui se définit comme un drogué de science et un athée conclut après plusieurs années d’étude: « Le secret le mieux gardé de la science médicale est l’énorme accumulation de preuves montrant que la prière guérit. » Il aborde ici tous les aspects de la prière, établissant des liens entre l’âme et le corps. Le Dr Dossey conseille une prière totalement ouverte, dépourvue de sectarisme et de toute demande spécifique. Ed. J. C. Lattes, France, 1995, 335 pages

Larry Dossey is one of the better authors out there. He is an M.D., and in this book discusses the healing effects of prayer. Not many medical doctors are aware of the power of prayer, far less use it to heal their patients.

Experiments have shown that prayer in fact positively affects high blood pressure, wounds, heart attacks, headaches, and anxiety. It was also shown that the “Thy will be done” approach was “quantitatively more powerful than when specific results were held in the mind”. A simple attitude of prayerfulness seemed to set the stage for healing.

The author shares his personal experiences of praying for his patients and of tackling his own health problems. We learn that many saints and spiritual teachers died of cancer, including the Buddha (or one of them), Saint Bernadette, Krishnamurti, Suzuki Roshi and Sri Ramana Maharshi. He discusses this paradox: surely they, of all people, should have been able to heal themselves? Jesus himself in John 9:1-3 implies that there may be a higher purpose to illness that we simply cannot grasp “because we do not know the ways of the Absolute”. There are also people who “break all the rules of good health, smoke and drink with abandon, and live to be a hundred without ever falling ill.”

Disease is part of the natural order, not a sign of ethical, moral or spiritual weakness.

This book is not so much a book of answers, but one in which the author discusses the various aspects of illness, healing and prayer, so we can reach our own conclusions.

Many were perplexed by the terminal cancer of Ramana Maharshi. His pain was immense, and he would scream out at night. Maharshi told people “There is pain, but there is no suffering”.

The author provides us with fascinating stories of miraculous recovery, and refers us to the works of Stanley Krippner, Lawrence LeShan, Joseph Campbell, Rainer Maria Rilke, and so on.

He refers to the “realization that physical illness, no matter how painful or grotesque, is at some level of secondary importance in the total scheme of our existence”. This is because our higher self is impervious to the ravages of any physical ailment whatsoever.

He tells us of the cooperation between Norman Shealy, M.D. ad Caroline Myss. The latter is incredibly skilled at diagnosing people´s illnesses at a distance. She is 93% accurate. We learn about noncontact therapeutic touch, transpersonal imagery, remote sensing and “telesomatic events”.

There is a chapter about prayer and the unconscious mind. People who deny their health problems “survive in greater numbers than those who confront the facts squarely and honestly”. No other psychological coping style is correlated with such a high survival rate in the acute phase of a myocardial infarction.

Learning “how to be” can set in motion not only healing but the power to heal. The author cites the case of de Vaca, the Spanish explorer, and that of Funatsu, a Japanese lost in the snow in Antarctica. The latter was buried alive and had to learn a “being strategy” – a not-doing strategy.

We learn about lucid dreams, healing dreams and shamanic journeying (Sandra Ingerman),

There are chapters about how to pray and what to pray for, time-displaced prayer, your doctor´s beliefs and why they matter, and even one on “black prayer”, which includes shamanic hexing (voodoo) and the Hawaiian death prayer.

This is an immaculately written book by a learned author. I strongly recommend that you read it. It is an encouraging and inspiring book and I will now be adding other books by this author to my long reading list. ( )
