An Energy Healer Revealed My Mom’s Darkest Secrets
I thought she was way off. It turned out I just didn’t know the full story.
I wasn’t always open to the idea of going to a healer. When I left the doomsday cult I was raised in, the greatest relief I felt was falling into the warm, rational embrace of atheism where nothing existed outside of what science could prove and no one could consider me delusional. However, when I started doing psychedelics, my understanding of reality began to shift and the concept that we are all energetic beings became very, “Yeah, duh.”
I’ve had myriad interdimensional experiences that have convinced me energy healing is real, so I was intrigued when I heard about Master Zhang, a Chinese master healer who’s famous for seeing inside people’s bodies and creating medicine out of thin air. While I believed it was possible, I still questioned whether some sleight-of-hand or magic was used. Those I knew who’d seen Master Zhang confirmed this wasn’t something that could’ve fallen out of her sleeve. This was a small orb of light slowly materializing into a physical pill, or, in some cases, liquid pouring directly out of her palm. Apparently, just the experience of witnessing the formation of the medicine had rocked them mentally. If you’re wondering, they say it tasted like herbs and menthol.
Naturally, I became obsessed. I read a book about her intense life in rural China and how she had performed so many miracles that the Chinese government kept throwing her in jail. At one point, the government put her in a hospital, strip-searched her, forced her to produce medicine, and she made over 100 date-sized pills. Then one-by-one, she diagnosed the health issues of each government official until they let her go, declaring her a true healer. Before I was even finished with the book, I emailed her translator. Master Zhang speaks no English, and at the time she didn’t have a website, any social media, or even an email address, so I could only contact her through her translator. When I made the appointment, the translator explained that the healer had a specific process that would take place in her home: scan the body, find any spirit entities attached to my field, and then relay any instructions from my spirit guides.
