Isa Northage's Brief Guide to Healing. The Medium.
Upon the medium depends for the most part the success or otherwise of healing treatment, for inspiration is governed by the channel through which it flows. The same applies to healing. The medium is the last link in the chain of power from the Godhead to the suffering patient. Much depends on the mental attitude and mood of the patient, so that failure cannot always be attributed to the medium and never to the guide. The medium when properly trained and developed will know when the patient is not receptive, in which case this should always be remedied before giving out any power, as it is obviously useless to give healing treatment if it is not going to be properly received. Guides can heal to a certain extent without a medium, but only when the patient is in the required circumstances and conditions, such as the sleep state, when they can only heal the astral (spirit) body from which the physical draws the extra energy.
The use of a medium is the general method and the most powerful one, because while a person is functioning through the senses of the physical mind, they are only conscious of the power from another physical body. Provided that a medium can become a channel for receiving and expelling the healing vibration, it is not necessary to be clairvoyant also, though this gift usually automatically develops in time through the continued raising of their vibrations. People who are very sensitive and emotional, warmhearted and sympathetic, make the finest healing mediums. Those who are easily irritated and quick-tempered, and lack patience, are unsuitable. Assuming that the medium possesses the right temperament, he or she should first ascertain what guide is working through them for healing, as this knowledge will help at all times to maintain a strong link, always necessary to ensure co-operation. This can be done by invoking the aid of those known to possess the clairvoyant vision, and this should be sufficiently evidential when a similar vision comes to more than one.
Each guide usually gives a name for recognition purposes, but there is often every reason to assume that the name is a pseudonym, though sometimes it will be the name by which they were known on earth. Everyone has a guide, (their own personal guide), who has been their constant guardian since birth, and remains so throughout their earthly life. Whatever the medium's outstanding psychic gift, is correspondingly possessed by the gyide. For example, if the medium's special gift is healing, the personal guide is the healer. Should they develop other gifts additionally it is possible there may be other guides working in their various capacities, for guides specialize in certain gifts, just as mediums do.
As previously stated, the strength of the power from the guide depends upon the guide's state of progress, as the higher the spiritual sphere [or plane] from which he or she comes, the finer the substance of the spiritual body, the finer the substance, the higher the vibration, for healing power is vibration. This is known as the "light" of the guide. The medium naturally offers a certain amount of resistance to the guide's power, as it has to flow through the body in a similar wqy to which a condenser offers resistance to electricity. It will be understood then that the light or state of progression of the medium will determine how much resistance is offered to the healing power. If the light is powerful, the resistance will be very much lessened, and likewise if the light is dim (from low progression) the resistance will be great and the power weak. To increase their light then is, or should be, the aim and desire of the medium, so as to heal well, powerfully, and successfully. This is what the Master meant when he said: "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

A case of healing in 1949. Reported by R. Smith. Nottingham.
At the age of 22 I began to suffer from headaches and depressions which were severe in nature. I was so ill that life was only an existence from day to day. Even my doctor could not help me, nor could the psychiatrist whom I visited. My cousin, Billy Gillette, came from Sheffield to Nottingham where I lived, to see a football match and saw my plight. He being a Spiritualist told me of Mrs. Northage, an old friend of his who was a wonderful Spiritual Healer, and she would help me.
Now I would like to say, having met Mrs. Northage, I've never in all my life known anyone so understanding and unselfish. I came to her as a stranger and told her of my condition, and she explained to me that she would send her spirit guide Dr. Reynolds to me while I was asleep, between the hours of 12 midnight and 2 a.m. On my next visit a week later I was told that Dr. Reynolds would like to speak to me.
At a later date I was allowed to sit at a trumpet seance at Pinewoods, Newstead Abbey, where I met Dr. Reynolds, who told me he had diagnosed my trouble. My nerves were in a very bad state and also he had found inside my nose pieces of broken bone. He promised to help me in the future and I was to send my thoughts to him whenever I needed him. He would arrange an operation on my nose, which took place on May 21st, 1949, in Mrs. Northage's operating theatre.
Casting my mind back into the past I can remember as a small child playing on a slide made out of the snow, when I fell on my face and broke my two front teeth. Although I didn't know I must have damaged my nose. I remember it was difficult to breathe down my nose; this must have caused a blockage, thus the headaches. My father who suffered from duodenal ulcer in the meantime had spoken with Dr. Reynolds and he had arranged to operate and remove the ulcer at the same time. At the operation there were eight people including Mrs. Northage, Mr. Stocks, Mr. Newman, Mrs. Stenson, my mother and father, Mr. Thompson and myself. Mr. Stocks opened in prayer and Mrs. Northage asked for the light to be switched off and then was taken in trance. A hymn was sung and the trumpet which was placed on the floor at the side of the operating table on which my father lay, was raised, and the voice of Ellen Dawes spoke, and said she had been sent to test and examine conditions.
After witnessing the wonderful operation of removing the ulcer from my father's abdomen, Dr. Reynolds had me sit with my back to him, then after plugging my nose with cotton wool he explained that he would dematerialise his hand and pass it through the back of my head and remove the splinters of broken bones in my nose with a piece of lint. Dr. Reynolds' hand was then seen to approach the back of my head and pass into it. I should like to say that I felt nothing at all, while this was going on. When his hand was withdrawn, he stretched out his hand and placed something in a dish along with the ulcer which was taken from my father. All those people present could clearly see the ulcer and the three small pieces of bone.
To conclude my story, all it remains for me to say is that my spirit brother, Jimmy Smith, spoke through the trumpet to my father and mother and myself. My spirit sister, Hilda Smith, was allowed to materialise, and all present saw her standing in her beautiful robes. She bent over my father and kissed him and told him she would help him: turning she spoke to my mother and myself, and then we saw her dematerialise.
Well, readers, this concludes this wonderful story of my operation under Dr. Reynolds, and I would like to add that I owe everything to Mrs. Northage, my marriage - which couldn't have been possible - and my son, which completes my happiness.
