Traveling in the Spirit and Healing
Many people, especially those who have no recollection of traveling in the spirit, might wonder what purpose there is for spiritual travel. One of the most common reasons l travel in the spirit is to be at the side of a person when I’m praying for their healing or deliverance over a great distance. I receive prayer requests from around the world and I can’t be in the same location as the one I’m praying for. I don’t believe it’s necessary to be in the same location. The effectiveness of healing prayer over distances has been well established. Yet, for reasons I don’t understand, I often travel in the spirit to be with the one who needs healing while I’m praying for them. The curious thing is that in many cases, I’m not aware that I traveled somewhere until I’m told about it.
As I pray for someone to be healed, I usually sit in my chair at my computer and close my eyes. As I pray, I’ll often see the figure of a person appear in my mind. Sometimes I can see myself extending my hands toward them. I pray as I’m led and then go on to the next prayer request. There isn’t much in this process that would make you think it involves spiritual travel except that in some cases, I’ll hear back from the person I prayed for and they’ll ask if I came to visit them.
Not long ago, a friend sent me a message asking if I would pray for his friend who had a headache. I agreed and a few minutes later, I prayed as described above. About 15 minutes later, my friend sent me a message asking if I prayed for his friend. I told him I had. He then said his friend sent him a message saying that a strange man appeared in his room and stood over him with his arms outstretched like he was praying for him. Apparently, I had traveled there in the spirit, though I was not aware of it at the time.
One day I received a request from a friend who needed deliverance from a demon. She lived in another state, so I closed my eyes and in my mind, I saw her standing in front of me. We kept in contact by text message, so, that I could check on the progress we were making. Speaking aloud, I commanded the demon to leave several times and after a few minutes, she could feel it leaving. Afterward, she felt much more freedom.
Traveling in the spirit and healing is more common than many of us suspect. It’s so common I don’t consider it unusual anymore. It’s just the way our spirit functions when it needs to carry out certain things like deliverance or healing. I believe many of us are already traveling in the spirit when we pray for others and are not aware of it.

I first heard of travelling in the Spirit 30+ yrs ago when a visiting evangelist talked about her adventures with the Lord, frequently Him getting her out of trouble, like running away from savages in the jungle then standing on the precipice of a great chasm river. She had to go down and after a step of faith, she ended up in a little boat 🙂 carried…by angel or Spirit I don’t know. Same side :/
Is that what that Is? I thought I was just visualizing. But there was this time a cat with very unusual markings walked into the picture in my mind and circled around the bed of a man I was praying for. He was about 12 hours drive away. When I mentioned that cat to them later I was told, “Oh, that’s his cat. It never leaves him.” The man was expected to die that night. He was healed instead.
Awesome story!! Do it again, Lord!!

Hello from CT! I’m new this blog. Studying the Praying Medic’s made simple bks/CD’s. Not ready to travel in the spirit. However, have had a few flying dreams over the years! The weightlessness and views from above the tree tops is beyond anything else I’ve experienced, WOW! Can anyone offer advice on how to connect with people in my state of Ct working in the healing ministry?
Welcome to the blog. Flying in dreams?
Sounds like you’re already traveling in the spirit.
I don’t know of any healing ministries in Connecticut but if you’re on Facebook, you might check out a group called “Inside Out Training and Equipping.”
If you would like to know ALL the in’s and out’s of healing check out this seminar by curry Blake. You won’t be disappointed. Here is the link
I’m traveling in the spirit!!! My dad too has experienced these flying dreams, and over the years we’ve shared our excitement, wonderment, and our common frustration over not being able to have a flying dream at will.
Seem to be stuck on exercise #1. I’m asking the Lord to manifest His presence, but nothing is happening that I recognize. No vision, weighty feeling, lightness, or joy. 🙁 I’m doing this exercise afternoon, before I go to sleep and when I wake; can you offer some additional advice?
I’m so thrilled to have your amazing instruction with Divine Healing Made Simple! I can point to a couple of worlds of knowledge in the past week, but they don’t appear to have a spiritual connection. Now don’t laugh, I had a dream of a big spider, woke up to find a spider in my sink! Knew the phone was ringing (had the ringer off) and sure enough a call was coming in! Years ago heard and saw a car accident in my minds eye, days later the scene played out in real life.
I’m practicing healing on myself and everyone I know. I’ve yet to identify for certain the results, yet remain undeterred and highly motivated thanks to you! Let you know the outcome of “Inside Out Training And Equipping”. Thank you!!!
Glad to hear of your progress. You might check out this post for a little more info on God’s presence.
I’m still on the fence. Not sure what I think about this. So many thoughts in my head: 1) Is it a spiritual gift that maybe some have in greater quantity than others? 2) Just because someone sees you doesn’t mean you are there. What if they are having a vision? 3) Is this going to become yet another thing everyone is trying to do like falling over on purpose in the prayer line because they want to be slain in the Spirit so badly?
You might begin the search for answers by defining exactly what a “vision” is. I believe a correct understanding on that point may resolve a few of your concerns.
Dear Praying Medic, again I would like to request please pray for my dearest friend Len Tizon who has a breast cancer. She had a mastectomy last Feb, but she is getting sick again. After the mastectomy, she had not seen a doctor again due to financial adversity.She is in the Philippines needing healing prayers. Please, pray for her total healing. God bless you.
P.S. I am still reading your first book. I can’t wait to read the next one. 🙂
I am praying for Len to be healed.
Dear Praying Medic, I never thought smoking was a spirit of addiction but now I do. This bondage is not from God. I have been smoking 39 yrs, wanting to quit for 30 yrs. I do the very thing I don’t want to and it sucks all the joy and energy from me. Quitting or thinking about smoking consume mynthoughts. I just want to be free to focus on getting out and praying for people… which I do whenever I get the chance…but having the energy to do more,especially after I retire. I feel helpless and don’t like it. Would you mind praying for me? I have cursed the addiction, repeated my right standing with God, etc. with Jesus living inside me I feel I should be able to kick this…yet when I read the Bible I hear that we should have others pray for us…? Thanks so much for such a great website.
Thanks for visiting my website, Valerie. I’m praying for you to be set free of smoking.
Recently I was speaking with my sister that moved about five hours south and she had a migraine and pains in her stomach. We were on the phone and I normally pray for people where I can see them like over skype or in person. But just using the phone I commanded it to leave and it did immediately. I wonder if I may have traveled there in the spirit. I have not had much experience with seeing in the spirit and things like that so I’m not sensitive to these things yet.
I quit smoking many years ago. I was smoking a pack and a half per day – 30 cigarettes every day and more if I stayed up late on the weekend with friends and partied. One day I decided to quit and quit drinking as I knew drinking might cause me to have a weak moment and start again. I envisioned a small demon on my left shoulder that was trying to get me to just have one cigarette that’s all – only one – it won’t do any harm. I would rebuke him and get angry at him and tell him he had to go away. The first few days were a little rough but I was determined and made it. Over the next few months I caught myself subconsciously reaching into my pocket for a cigarette. It’s not only a chemical habit, it is a physical habit as well. You may want to get some sugar free gum to chew from time to time to keep your hands and mouth a little busy when you have a craving.
Thank you for giving so freely of yourself. Please pray for my grandson Michael, he suffered asphyxia at birth resulting in infantile spasms and developmental delays. His parents are suffering immensely.
I’m praying for Michael to be healed.
