Long-Distance PowWow

Posted by Rob Phoenix on April 29, 2013 at 4:15 PM

One of the most common distance charms in the PowWow tradition is the recitation of Ezekiel 16:6 "Then I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, and I said unto thee, 'Live'." (paraphrased).  This particular passage is really about how God picked up the nation of Israel and nurtured it and made it into something beautiful.  If you read through the rest of Ezekiel 16, it is almost as if the author is speaking about a woman, but it's really a metaphorical chapter about God's love for Israel.  This is a tried and proven all purpose charm within the PowWow tradition, and it is known to work especially well for distance healing.

When someone asks me for healing work, I do one (or more) of several things...

For starters, their name is put into my Bible.  Generally I write their name on a slip of paper and place it in the pages of my Bible.  I then say a silent prayer for their recovery.

Then, on Monday evenings when I do my distance PowWow for all of the requests I get throughout the week, I work through the Ezekiel charm for each individual separately.  There are a few other charms that I use for long-distance work in place of Ezekiel, depending on the circumstances.

The Lord's Prayer.  This can be said over the name of a sick individual. 

Our Father, who art in Heaven,

hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done,

on earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread

and forgive us our sins,

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Lead us not into temptation

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory

forever and ever.  Amen.

The all-purpose charm that I typically use for headaches:

Tame thou flesh and bone, like Christ in Paradise, and who will assist thee, this I tell thee (NN) for your repentance sake.  In the names of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.  Amen.  Amen.

If they have a long-term condition, I then place the paper with their name in my private charms book.  There is a page exclusively dedicated to distance charms that contains a symbol and private writings designated for this purpose.

If you want to work distance healing for others, simply let others know that you do this work.  Then you can follow along with what I do, or you can come up with your own methods.  Remember to read through the rest of this website, as well as the recommended reading list, for more ideas.
