To repair and develop the spirit in order to heal and positively evolve the spirit and physical body so greatness and fulfillment of ones life mission can be realized

John Douglas, the Master Spiritual Healer who brings you this meditation, practices extraordinary spiritual healing, or "spirit repair." Hailing from Sydney, Australia, John uses precise techniques and processes with Master Angelic Beings to heal the evolution of humans and the earth on many levels. Together, John and his companions are working to create change on the quantum "invisible" level to be experienced as healing on the physical level.

John Douglas was born in Australia in 1971. John Douglas is a Master Spiritual Healer, Clairvoyant and Telepathic, in contact with Master Angelic Beings. At the age of nine, John received a complete clairvoyant activation, allowing full vision of the energetic or spiritual dimension. Higher faculties of remote scanning or sensing, of the energetic realm or quantum level is also a feature of Johns ability, allowing him to measure and identify various energetic frequencies within the body or spiritual realms. These remarkable tools have allowed John to practice extraordinary spiritual healing, or “spirit repair”, encompassing various precise techniques and processes that create positive change, healing and evolution in humans on many levels.

During his unconventional life, John has received knowledge and teaching of the healing arts and energetic realities both physically and telepathically from his spiritual companions, and from living teachers. After completing high school, John was led to a living source of hitherto unreleased knowledge, and continued to learn with these Masters for several years. At the age of 24, after many years of dedication, practice and learning of the spiritual arts, John received the initiation of Spiritual Master, and received the accompaniment of the The Master Angels. The techniques employed by John, via his spiritual companions are a powerful synthesis of known and unknown methods that are producing amazing changes and healing on all levels.

The “secret healer” has been quietly evolving and refining with the help and love of his beloved Masters and is now considered at the cutting edge of spiritual healing evolution by many admirers. Many lives have been changed and touched by the love and devotion John expresses to people, the earth and his mission.
