Other Healing Gifts
I have been mulling over the individual gifts that many of us have developed and actively practiced both here on earth and before coming to earth. I wanted to collect some of these various gifts that I have used a little, and some that I have seen others use.
Before I list these, please know that God is very open to all varieties of healing gifts, and gives them abundantly to those that seek. We can develop these gifts while we live on earth too. They are not part of the gifts God uses to directly bless his children through us as conduits (the five gifts and God's Loving Healing Hands gift). He encourages us to develop them and use them to bless the lives of those we serve. All these gifts are given by God.
D&C 46:11-12 "For all have not every gift given unto them; for there are many gifts, and to every man is given a gift by the Spirit of God. To some is given one, and to some is given another, that all may be profited thereby."
Please send in your specific healing gifts and I will post them here. They are not in any particular order, and there are many.

Jeremiah 8:22 Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?"
From LDS.org: "Balm of Gilead — The Guide to the Scriptures An aromatic gum or spice used for healing wounds (Gen. 43:11; Jer. 8:22; 46:11; 51:8). A bush producing the resin from which the balm was made grew so plentifully in Gilead in Old Testament times that the balm came to be known as the “balm of Gilead” (Gen. 37:25; Ezek. 27:17).
My sister introduced this healing gift to me. This is an ointment or salve, spiritually applied to person's needy physical body, spirit, mind or emotions. When applied with love and tenderness, it heals and soothes.
Here is what my sister says:
"When I do the healing balm, I picture a very liquid gold balm that goes in at the crown and slowly moves down the body, absorbing into every single cell and all the nerves, the organs, the fluids...everything. It is soothing and healing. If there is a particular place where there is damage or illness, the balm can be directed there. One can even imagine dipping an organ into a beautiful vessel filled with this healing balm and imagine the organ bathing in it and being slowly filled with it (like marinating). I have not tried an ointment or salve, just the liquid golden healing balm which I actually have used for years!"
Here is my recent experience: I was trying to energetically sooth and heal a client's foot which was hurting in a specific location, near her little toe. When I paused and looked, I perceived a little piece of 'something', like cartilage, which kept sticking up. This was a little peculiar to me. I applied Intention Healing to this area, and that seemed to help. However, when I visualized energetically applying healing balm to this area of her foot, I perceived a deep penetration of calming of the tissues. This little piece of something went back in place and seemed to merge with the surrounding tissue.
The Good Samaritan parable told by Jesus Christ includes this verse, a loving act performed by the Samaritan who served the wounded Jew:
Luke 10:34 "And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him."
Speaking of the House of Israel which has gone astray, Isaiah says:
Isaiah 1:6 "From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment."
In Isaiah's day, as in ours, binding up wounds and soothing with ointment was a normal practice.
I like to think of binding up wounds (physical, spiritual, mental or emotional) as wrapping a spiritual binding or bandage around the wound. I did this yesterday too with my client's foot (same illustration as shown in the healing balm above). When I came back the next day, the 'something' had popped up again, like it had been originally. I was wondering what I could do to get the foot to heal, and to get this 'something' to go back down into its adjoining tissue. When I thought of this more, I wanted something to bind or hold the cartilage in place, so I visualized a splint of sorts and a bandage. The splint held the protruding something down so it wouldn't pop up again, and the whole foot was wrapped. I then poured healing balm over it all again, and I could see it penetrate into the tissues again, making it soothed and comforted.
